This is just a quick blog to talk about the difficulty we (and every other repair center) are having servicing the iPod Touch 5. Specifically replacing that 4-inch Retina display; It’s a difficult item to service and I just wanted to share our experiences.
The display itself is backed with a very thin “gasket” that’s made of plastic. We call it a bezel. The issue is that removing a screen from the device (even when it’s already damaged) as if we are going to install a new one, the bezel becomes damaged as well.
This is as good as it gets.
This plastic bezel is clipped into the frame and the back of the iPod – and then the glass is attached to the bezel. It’s a one way street. Assembling the unit is doable, but the dis-assembly is very difficult and next to impossible.
The iPod Touch 5 split open. That bezel is just a hassle on the production line!
So what to do? We are working with our vendors to supply us with the glass, LCD and bezel installed. This seems to be the only way to effectively reinstall the new part and make it look like it came from the factory. Which is the only way we will perform the repair for our customers.
Why would I post this? It’s information that our customers want to know. And it’s one of the reasons that the repair is so costly at this point. Soon our repair price on this particular service will drop and this issue will be a faint memory. After all, we want to keep your device in tip top condition and with the number of requests that we receive for the iPod Touch 5 Glass repair on a daily basis is proof that the public is looking for a solution. Hang tight folks; like you’ve known since 1994, I’ve been solving these issues for you, and Mission Repair will be there when you need us.
Thanks, have a great night!
Hi there everyone. We’re bracing for the snow that’s about to fall. We are expecting 6-10 inches over the next 24 hours and that’s enough to get some people riled up. Not us, we are holding on like troopers and we will be open and repairing tomorrow (unless we can’t get to work that is). Wish us luck!
I have a feeling that our normal 9 am deliveries from FedEx might be a little late, so this will give us a chance to blog about the 15 new services that we added this week.
What a beautiful device. When the screen isn’t cracked!
I’m ready to share one of them right now! We are now repairing the Samsung Galaxy Note II (Verizon Version) at Mission Repair, and we have glass panels in stock ready for installation. That’s right, we can fix the Galaxy Note II glass if it’s cracked on your unit!
There’s no reason to live with it like that. We have the expertise and parts in stock (not to mention the best price anywhere) for the repair, so never fear – we can get it done tomorrow!
Unless we are snowed out of the office that is 😉
Well, you’ll hear from us one way or the other about the impending snow storm, but since most of us have 4 wheel drive vehicles in the Kansas City area, driving in snow isn’t new to us. We’ll be back soon!!
Have a good night, Ryan
Hello M:R Nation –
Its the calm before the storm here in Kansas City and what better time to announce a new repair service than right now? For many years, we have been the go to repair center for everything Samsung and after all this time, this remains true. From the Samsung Infuse to the slew of Samsung Galaxy S III services we offer, you can certainly find what you need at Mission Repair.
This leads us to todays announcement! We are so very happy to announce the new Samsung Galaxy Note II AT&T (white) Glass and LCD Screen Repair! Just like the the sprint version, this thing is massive! With a 5.55 -inch display it is the biggest smartphone on the market! Couple that with the 1.6GHz quad-core processor and you have yourself a real winner!
Welp…I should probably lay some ice-melt down in the front of our facility before the great Winter Storm Q rolls through town. Wish us luck and if you are in the path of this storm, be safe!
