Not exactly. We will replace the entire screen for your iPhone,
but charge you a lower rate, as we recover the difference when your
screen is recycled. From your point of view, it is exactly the same
repair as an LCD change, except it costs you less.
Yes, we can glue it or bond it back, but before we do it we strongly recommend a check up to determine the source of the problem and target it to avoid having the same problem over and over.
The common causes are:
Yes, you can use a pin-shaped object to carefully try to dislodge
whatever might be preventing your charger from connecting properly.
Please proceed cautiously and avoid the connector pins, which you
should be able to see when looking inside the connector. If your
charging problem persists, we will be glad to examine the device for
No, you should get it checked ASAP, because even if it’s working
at the moment, the nature of liquid damage is such that your device
may now be in a very unstable state. It can work fine for a while,
then you will gradually lose some functions, and it can finally stop
working altogether. The faster you bring it in, the faster we can
contain any corrosion – replace any parts if needed – and keep your
MacBook from deteriorating further. Water damage is unpredictable and
extremely dangerous for your device.
The warranty is 6 months and covers functionality and fitting the
glass; it does not cover any user damage (shocks, liquid spills,
etc.), nor any loss of functionality unrelated to the repair. That is
to say, if your home button doesn’t work after getting your glass
replaced, there is a strong possibility that it is related to the
operation, and it is covered by the warranty. If your power button
stops working, that is much less likely to be related to us, and it
would not be covered. We investigate each case separately however, and
whatever issue turns out to be a result of our repair, you will be
covered for it.
Repair times vary widely from each smartphone to another,
especially for batteries, especially as some of them are removable by
the user and some are not. Even for non-user removable batteries, some
are easier to reach and some are very difficult, so times will vary.
You can back up the data and restore the computer to its factory
settings, as a first step. If the problem persists, and especially if
you have hardware issues – such as a faulty hard drive or an
overheating machine, we recommend you come to see us.
Yes, and this is the main reason why repair times are 3 times
longer than for other iPhones. We reseal your device during the
operation, so that it can keep its waterproof property.
The majority of our services are available at all our stores,
with the exception of some circuit repairs and the front glass
replacement for some particular models. Our store in Plateau
Mont-Royal is where these services are offered.
The prices are fixed, however we can give a discount for multiple
repairs on a device. When we can open a device just once and perform
several operations on it, we won’t charge you the full price for each.
Yes, we do have corporate programs. Please call us on 1 888 831 1642 and we will be happy to discuss your needs
Apple provides replacement parts only for Apple-authorized repair
shops (one or two exist in Montreal), and they provide the service for
the exact same price as Apple does. If another repair shop claims to
have original, brand new Apple parts, they are either taking them from
brand new devices, or simply misleading you. At iTronics, we offer two
types of Apple replacement screens: the ones we use mainly are orignal
refurbished screens, which means they are original used screens that
have been refurbished to be as new; we also sometimes use aftermarket
screens of the highest quality (95% of the original standard). Our
warranty is the same, no matter which type of screen we have installed
for you. For certain other devices, like Samsung for instance, the
screens are either 100% original or refurbished. We do not use copies
on those models, since the copies are LCD and the originals are
AMOLED, which are completely different types of screens.
Yes, this is something we can either do as part of a repair
(especially screen changes), or as a repair in itself. However, we
cannot guarantee the functionality of your phone in the more serious
cases, because of potential microcracks on your motherboard. When the
casing of your phone bends, it can bend the motherboard past its
breaking point and cause microscopic damage to it. When twisting the
phone back to its original shape, these microcracks can actually get
worse and start causing problems if they hadn’t done so already. These
problems include display issues, camera issues, Wi-Fi connection
problems and more. Microcracks can be helped if they are on the
outside layers of the circuits, but in many cases a new motherboard is
