    Richard, I also saw on another channel that they say ‘True Tone” is lost with screen repairs of the XS including if an original apple screen is used. is this true?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  2 months ago

      I've actually havent heard any other channel mention it. I dont really watch other channels like mine. I do watch Jerryrigeverything videos but he isnt in the phone repair business. I have had a few comments ask about it in my channel but I think it's in the type of screen replacement people buy. I'm actually not sure. I havent had 1 single customer that has asked me about it after I repaired their phone.

  • xray364

    Great video Richard. I’ve tried repairing my phones in the past and I always had trouble getting those damn small screws to sit properly on the screw divers. I even lost one inside a phone once and fished around for it for ages. I’ll have to use you techniques of setting the screw on the screwdriver. Most other videos I watched never actually show how they do that. They just show you the parts where they screw them in.

    • Richard Meza

      It's all in the magnetic screwdriver.

    I repair iPhones out here in Chula Vista mostly for people I know, family members and freinds of freinds, I’ve done about 50 iPhones from that so far😂😂😂 i was all like’’watch him say somone in Chula Vista is not competition’’ and you actually said it HAH anyways I’m 17 n hopefully one day I can have my own shop down here 🤗

    • Richard Meza

      Chula Vista is too far away from Mission Valley for iPhone repair competition.

    You didn’t add any waterproofing?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  4 months ago

      Once the phone is open for repair, waterproofing is gone. You can buy that tape on ebay but it does absolutely nothing. The real water proofing that Apple uses is a foam type of gooey stuff.

  • Karen Cas

    i'm really learning this business from your videos. so far, your tutorials are the best I've viewed, and i've viewed tens of tens of cell phone repair videos. i love the "up close" clear videography without mess in the background. it's just you and the phone and the parts. the placement of the camera is beneficial-we see what you lay down, what you pick up, how you move the parts in the phone. great!! your course is not an exhorbidant price and i'll be better able to partake in it. awesome job!! i'm going to binge watch your tutorials and will most definitely sign up for the course soon. TY!

  • The Melcrafter Lab's
    The Melcrafter Lab's 6 months ago +1

    I want to be clear here, You should have to make again that waterproof seal you broke removing the screen for the phone(cheap part selling everywhere)... or Tell the customer their phone are not waterproof Anymore. Also put that disclaimer here in your tutorial video, for future tecnnician.

    • The Melcrafter Lab's
      The Melcrafter Lab's 6 months ago

      @Richard Meza telling the customer their phone is not waterproof anymore is a valid option too. Just to the tutorial purpose of the video...,

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  6 months ago

      The waterproofing tape you see sold on Ebay or Amazon does absolutely nothing. When you fix a customers phone, do you give a demonstration after you fix their phone and put it in a bucket of water right there in front of them? The waterproofing that is originally used in the phone is not tape. It's a Gunky gooey thick adhesive. That's not sold on Ebay or Amazon.

  • bia3lasek

    Hey, aren't you supposed to transfer IC data to the new screen for True Tone to work?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  6 months ago

      @bia3lasek I've never heard of that before. The screens are probably already programmed when I receive them.

    • bia3lasek
      bia3lasek 6 months ago

      @Richard Meza Well, it's being said that TrueTone is gone when using any screen but originally mounted to phone, it is somehow programmed to the board, like with the home button, but it is possible to reprogram replacement screen (only OLEDs are reprogrammable) using original's screen IC data, and then TrueTone is restored. However I wasn't able to try that out as I found out about it just recently. I was curious about your experiences with it. So, does TrueTone on your replacement screen work?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  6 months ago

      @bia3lasek I've never heard of that. Tried to look what you mean on quick RU-clip search. I dont replace the screen with a copy LCD screen. I use OLED screens. The screens are probably already programmed. I've never had a customer come back and ask and also on my own iPhone X that I have a replacement OLed screen on, and everything is normal.

    • bia3lasek
      bia3lasek 6 months ago

      @Richard Meza and True Tone is still maintained on the replacement screen?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  6 months ago

      No. Never heard of that.

  • kyle dyke

    Is the phone still waterproof after this?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  6 months ago +1

      No. Have to decide what's more important. Getting the phone repaired or going swimming with the phone.

  • lucious
    lucious 6 months ago

    Do you need to buy loads of screens first before you start replacing them? How do you recommend I start my business? Do I buy say 3 screens of each phone I'm going to be repairing to start with? Obviously customers will want thier phones repaired the same day and not wait till I get the part in they need before I even repair it. Does that make sense?

    Can i use a hair blower ?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  7 months ago

      Hair blower to open up the iPhone screen in the beginning of the repair. I believe it will work.

  • Boban Stanisavljević

    Hey Richard, great video.
    I was wondering is this phone still water proof??

    • Boban Stanisavljević
      Boban Stanisavljević 7 months ago

      @Richard Meza I see...
      I guess, when you sell phone, you should tell the customer that phone is not water resistant anymore 😂

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  7 months ago

      @Boban Stanisavljević no. Phones not waterproof after the repair. Repairing the phone is way more important then swimming with the phone underwater .

    • Boban Stanisavljević
      Boban Stanisavljević 7 months ago

      @Richard Meza what about samsung phones, are they still waterproof after screen repair / replace?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  7 months ago +1

      @Boban Stanisavljević probably getting a hold of the original gasket adhesive that Apple uses. But that's not for sale. You can buy generic adhesive but that doesnt work.

    • Boban Stanisavljević
      Boban Stanisavljević 7 months ago

      @Richard Meza I see...
      Is there any way to make it waterproof again? Maybe using different type of glue?
      Thanks

  • simz

    Great video, im coming from the position of smashing my iphone xs and was just wanting some advice as you obviously have experience with broken phones. I dropped mine the other day and the screen is smashed up. There is also a strip of the screen (maybe just less than an inch or so) that is unresponsive on touch and I have been experiencing ghost touching so my phone is clicking on the screen by itself. Do you think a screen replacement would sort these issues or is the phone more deeply damaged and will more repairs be needed?
    Thanks!

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  7 months ago +1

      You just need to replace the screen. The display is damaged, that's what's causing the ghosting and other problems. Once you replace your screen, it will go back to normal.

  • rchance2228
    rchance2228 8 months ago +1

    What do you do about an old screen that doesn't work? I'm guessing you can't sell it to get refurbished. If this is correct, then you're only profiting $90?

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  8 months ago

      Yes. If the display screen is damaged and bleeding colors or has dead pixels then you cant sell the broken one off. But $90 profit in 15 min is still good dont you think? Most screens are cracked glass only screens. So most cracked screens you should be able to sell them off Or you can learn to refurbish them yourself. I still sell these off.

  • Cris

    Hello Richard, what buy back service are you using? the highest one I found was only offering $19 for a fully functioning 8+ OEM Apple screen 🤦‍♂️

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  9 months ago

      The supplier that i have used for the last 5 years buys back and also does refurbishing. The iPhone 8+ I used the refurbishing from the get go. Only the new Oled iPhones I sell off. I will give that info in a course I will be putting out soon. I'm halfway finished with it.

      Richard Meza  9 months ago

      There are numerous places to buy and sell the screens. As for my personal supplier that I've been using for the last 5 years, I'm working on a course that I will include all that info in it.

  • istvan bokor
    istvan bokor 9 months ago +1

    Yeah, sounds good but u still ruin your business as customers learn that old screen is worth a lot of money and they keep it to sell off.

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  9 months ago

      Customers that walk into a shop aren't looking on youtube to fix their own phones. If someone needs an oil change on their car, are the customers looking up DIY videos or are they just taking it to a place to have it done.

  • StudioPro AV Av

      I have a debubbler machine but I dont use it. I outsource all my iPhone refurbishing or sell off the new model screens. For the link I will give out that info in a couple weeks. Stay tuned for that. Ive had alot of questions who my suppliers are.

      Noah B 10 months ago

      Hey S P, you can also look into freezers using liquid nitrogen. If you have a welding supply in your town, it is a good alternative, and $1400 cheaper! This is the one I'm talking about.... amzn.to/2ROsSyR

      @Richard Meza yes sorry for samsungs mostly. Thanks for getting back to me once again. I found a separator freezer for around 2k and have done repairs on phones before so I just wanted to get some input from someone who has been around like yourself.

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  10 months ago +1

      You mean glass only for Samsungs. With iPhones screens I sell them off or have a refurbishing business do it for me. I want to wait and see when the new Galaxy S10 comes out. I want to see how that selfie camera pops through the screen. I also hear the rumor that the Samsung Note phones may be discontinued. And the S10 is coming out with likely 4 models of different sizes. It's gotten harder yes with the S9 but I'll wait and see for the S10.

    • Richard Meza
      Richard Meza  10 months ago +1

      I taught myself. I have a youtube video called "My Story" I tell everything in there exactly how I started. I started off with basically almost no money. Just had 2 iPhones and sold them on craigslist. Used that money to buy more iPhones. Fixed them, unlocked and jailbroke them. Resold them. Just repeated that process over and over. I made $100 profit each time I did it. Which then led into making Ads fixing phones for customers. Watch that video, it explains everything.
