Solder On, Repair Community!

In the cell phone repair industry, micro soldering is an important skill to have. With devices shrinking in size, certain repairs have become more advanced as more components are soldered to the logic board. This hasn’t stopped repair shop technicians from diving in and perfecting these repair skills. Many of these techniques can be learned at a cell phone repair training school, on YouTube, or by attending professional training courses taught by the experts at BEST Soldering school.

Note 3 Glass Only Parts and Tools

Over the past year glass only repair and LCD refurbishment have become extremely popular among members of the Repair Community. While we don’t know whether this increase in popularity is due to the premium price of LCD assemblies or the improvement in glass only repair techniques; we do know that when properly executed, refurbishing LCDs can be a profitable addition to a repair business.

Glass only repairs have been especially popular with Samsung devices. While our Samsung-authorized LCD assemblies are top-sellers, eTech Parts strives to be your one-stop shop for all the parts, tools and accessories your repair shop needs. We’re pleased to offer glass only repair tools and parts to our customers at wholesale prices — including glass only parts for Samsung Galaxy Note 3!

Be sure to log in (or signup for a wholesale account) to view your wholesale pricing.

Though they can be time consuming, glass only repairs are not only good for increasing your profits — they’re good for the environment, too! Reusing LCD screens decreases the amount of electronic waste that typically gets shipped overseas. Electronic waste is a growing problem and eTech Parts is always looking for solutions that lead to improving our business and yours.

Let us know in the comments below: does your repair shop offer glass only repairs or LCD refurbishing? Has it been a successful addition to your business, or do you find it’s not worth your time?

Repair With Confidence

Repair with confidence using Samsung-Authorized repair parts!

Sometimes doing things the right way can cost a little more; so when people ask why our Samsung repair parts are more expensive than similar parts from other vendors, we’re honest with them. Our parts for Samsung devices are original, authorized parts created by the original manufacturer. eTech Parts is proud to offer Samsung-authorized repair parts to our wholesale dealer network.

We sell only Samsung-authorized parts from an authorized dealer. The safest way to do business in this industry is to purchase Samsung parts from an authorized dealer. Here at eTech Parts we care about the success of your business and would hate to do anything to potentially get you in trouble. You want to run your business the right way to avoid any trouble for your business or your customers. Any sale or purchase of parts with a trademarked manufacturer’s logo is strictly against copyright laws and you don’t want to put your business or employees at risk. We’ve heard about shops facing consequences after making the decision to save a few dollars by using counterfeit parts. This solidifies in our minds the reason why we play by the rules, so you don’t get burned.

 

You know the saying, “you get what you pay for” right? When you purchase Samsung-authorized parts from eTech Parts you are getting exactly what you pay for: original parts with essentially no defects! You can repair with confidence knowing the replacement part will work as an original part should and there will be no repercussions. Sell it to your customers that your shop uses original Samsung parts, so while they might be paying more by choosing your services — you get what you pay for.

 

Counterfeit Warning Signs

 

  • Price : If the price is extremely low and seems too good to be true, it probably is. There’s a good chance any part priced well under market value is NOT a Samsung-authorized part; it could be a refurbished unit or an aftermarket part with illegal trademarks.

 

  • Frame : Any Samsung part that is advertised and sold without a frame is NOT an authorized repair part. Samsung-authorized resellers will never offer Samsung Galaxy replacement screens without the frame.

 

  • Colors : If the color of the screen is one that Samsung didn’t produce, it’s not an authorized repair part.

 

At this time, eTech Parts can only offer authorized Samsung parts. While at one time we thought we had a legitimate source for authorized LG and HTC parts, unfortunately we learned our vendor wasn’t authorized as they had claimed. If you have a legitimate source for authorized LG or HTC parts and feel comfortable giving us a vendor name, we would love to hear from you. Help us help you!
