Is Tekdry a scam? The truth behind the water damage repair machine

Tekdry has built and developed a machine that allows you to take a device that has been submerged in liquid (most commonly water) 

 The premise behind tekdrys machine is that by using a combination of heat, vacuum and liquid absorbing pellets it can dry out and remove the remaining liquid leftover in the device.

What the user is not aware of is that throughout the process of the fan drawing current from the battery, it also provides a feedback loop into the charging circuit causing the tristar charging ic to get ruined. Fortunately for all of our customers the phone is not ruined! It simply needs a new tristar charging ic chip installed which involves micro soldering.

Secrets Your Mobile Phone Insurance Company Doesn't Want You To Know

The promise of phone insurance and the reality of it are vastly different. Most people seem to think that if they “break” their phone the insurance is there to replace it with a brand new one. For some, a “broken phone” is really just a shattered screen that could have been replaced at a repair shop for about $100, but instead they send it off to Asurion and have their phone (that had a perfectly functional motherboard and had never seen a drop of water) replaced with a “Refurbished by Asurion” phone whose mobo was shoddily repaired after liquid damage by a half-rate technician contracted by the company to mass repair boards collected from other phones sent to the company from customers that don’t really seem to understand what their phone is worth.

iPhone not charging when plugged in?

Any knowledgeable electronics repair shop should be able to pretty quickly determine the source of the issue by observing if the phone draws any current with an ammeter, dry-fitting a new charging port and new battery, and observing the response through the ammeter. 

A bad tristar might still result in the phone drawing current, but won't allow the battery to charge. To be certain, a known working battery might be dry-fit onto the phone and if the phone still won't charge the new battery, then a tristar repair is indicated.

iPhone battery symbol not charging

Having a phone that won’t charge or turn on is one thing, but knowing that there’s a chip inside that’s damaged and preventing it from turning on is an entirely different frustration. But, knowing is half the battle, both when it comes to the cables being used and the steps needed to fix it. Did you ever suffer from an iPhone  that wouldn’t turn on, or charge over 1%?

iPhone 6 Long Screw Damage

The top 2 screws (shown in orange and yellow) screw into the frame and/or stand-off screws. The 3 screws in the bottom triangle are sitting atop the motherboard millimeters above very tiny traces that can be breached if a longer screw is used, hence the name "long screw damage". This is often caused by in-experienced technicians and/or Do-It-Yourselfers who failed to accurately keep track of the screws.

When this type of damage is done, the only method to repair the phone is micro soldering with a microscope. It is very significant and often times can completely ruin the phone. The symptoms of this damage is often: blue screen on start up, red screen on boot, no backlight, no image on boot, phone still vibrates but no image on screen.

iPhone 6 Backlight Repairs

…The iPhone 6 that we had showed signs of life but no display. After replacing the screen with a new one, it still showed no signs of an image. When inspecting the screen in front of a flashlight, a faint image was visible. This confirmed that the phone was on and in fact worked, but had a blown back light. For this type of repair it would require micro soldering. After checking the filters on the motherboard we found them to have continuity and functioned within specifications. At this point in the back light circuit we still had a back light display BGA IC (ball grid array integrated circuit) as well as a coil and a diode. After checking the coil, which was also found to be within specifications, we then looked to the diode. Below is the picture of the diode under the cpu heatsink.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 GT-P5210 Battery Connector Repair

This week in micro soldering repairs we came across a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 GT-P5210 that had its battery replaced and the battery connector was loose. This was a result of a failed attempt of a DIY battery replacement. After getting the motherboard under the microscope we noticed all the pins were de-soldered from the board and needed micro soldering to re-attach them. Hot air would not be suitable in this situation due to the close proximity of plastic and other smd components.

We were able to capture the repair on video to show the whole process that was performed during this micro soldering repair service which took less than 15mins from start to finish.

The problem that typically causes this is bad solder joints under one and/or both of the touch ics on the motherboard. The intergrated circuits using a BGA (ball grid array) of solder balls and often when the phone is slightly bent or dropped then these connections can become jossled and lose connection which results in spotty or little touch response on the screen.
