A customer phoned up today and confessed to a DIY earpiece repair. He had dropped his iPhone 4S and the earpiece speaker had stopped working. After attempting a repair himself, he was left with a phone with a non working LCD screen, although he had successfully repaired his earpiece speaker!
After a bit of investigation, it looked as though the LCD ribbon was damaged, which meant the whole LCD/Touchscreen unit would need replacing.
The phone arrived in bits, with a few screws missing.
After a new LCD was fitted, a full 30point test was completed the phone was as good as new.
The customer was charged £65 for a new touchscreen fitted, a rubber grommet and 3 screws.
He went away very happy.
