Trouble With Your EVO 3D Screen? Learn How to Easily Change It Yourself
One of the most hands-on activities that anyone with a piece of equipment could do is to take it apart to peek at the insides. However, what could one possibly gain from doing such a thing? Well, aside from learning a bit about components, getting a clue as to how the devices actually work (and that they are in fact, not “magical” as some people will try to make you believe), and losing the overall fear of messing around with electronics, you may learn to spot what is wrong with your device. This is a very important skill if you always have devices with you and are prone to do things like bump them against tables, sit on them while having them on your back pocket, or throw them in the toilet/washing machine. Sending your device for out of warranty repairs from damage like the one previously described can in fact be costly, but what if you could do this yourself? Parts are cheap enough to make it worth your while.
However, where does one start? Surely, you will not dare opening your device without knowing what you will find beyond those 6 Torx screws, would you? You need a reliable guide and for those of you sporting the HTC EVO 3D, XDA Forum Member repairsuniverse has you covered. His dismantling guide can be used to learn about the insides of the 3D as well as teaching you the ins and outs of changing your screen and digitizer, among other parts that should be intuitive from following the guide.
Please ensure that you have all the necessary tools in order to carry out this delicate operation. The right tools will ensure that you don’t mistakenly damage your device. So, please follow every step carefully and most importantly… have fun!
You can find more information in the guide thread.
