Soldering Services

At SmartfoneFix we hire a team of qualified repair technicians who have over 100 years combined experience in soldering. Our assets include market leading specialist soldering equipment and machinery. We offer 3 levels of soldering services. General Soldering, Micro Soldering and Nano Soldering.

Soldering is the process in which two or more items are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint. Soldering connects electronic wiring and electronic components to Printed Circuit Boards. The majority of soldering is done by machines in factories and little work is done by hand due to technological advances.

We can repair printed circuit boards more commonly known as logic boards or motherboards which have failed due to damaged surface mounted components such as FPC connectors, ICs, dry joints, resistors, capacitors, filters, coils etc.

General day to day repairs here at SmartfoneFix consist of the following;

SMD Component Replacement - Surface Mounted Components i.e. Fuses, Filters, Diodes, Resistors, Coils, Integrated Circuits

FFC / FPC Connector Replacement - Board Connectors for connections to the motherboard such as LCD displays, flex cables etc

Micro USB Port Replacement - 5 Pin Micro USB Component for Power, Charging, Data Transfer on Smartphones etc

SIM Card Reader Replacement - 6 Pin SIM Connector for Subscriber Identity Module recognition (Full Size, Micro, Nano)

Backlight Line Repair - Rebuilding the Backlight Line on the motherboard to enable the LCD display light to function

Coaxial Connector Replacement - Board Connector for the transfer of signal from one part of the PCB to another

We can replace any component on any printed circuit board subject to part availability, we also have the ability to re-wire components with damaged or missing surface traces also known as solder pads. This is a very specialist field and we are continuously expanding and exploring new avenues to reduce waste and being able to repair electronics which in turn reduces electronic waste going to landfills.  This means that what is classed as BER 'Beyond Economic Repair' by other repair centres can actually be repaired and warranted by ourselves.
