Common Device Repairs at CPR
Professional device repair is in our DNA at CPR Cell Phone Repair. We know you love your smartphone. It’s your main source of connection to your friends, family, and favorite cat videos on YouTube. Unfortunately, you’re bound to run into the occasional issue with this great technology. That’s where we come into the picture. We handle hundreds of repairs in our 500 locations every day and pride ourselves on bringing devices back to life. Although we can handle any device repair, here are the six most common device repairs we see at CPR.
Common Device Repairs
Whether you’re experiencing a broken device currently or are just doing your research ahead of time, this list is a great place to start. Our technicians are skilled in these repairs and any other tech issues you may encounter.
Screen Replacement and Repair
Perhaps the most common device repair we see in our stores is the shattered or faulty screen repair. Did you know that you don’t always need a complete screen replacement for a cracked screen? That’s right—sometimes it’s as simple as replacing the cover glass. In any case, when you find yourself with a simple crack or a completely shattered screen, our repair experts have you covered.
Remember when mobile phones only made calls and had a full number pad of buttons? Nowadays, just about every smartphone is equipped with an edge-to-edge touchscreen and a single home button on the face. It seems like a minor feature on your phone until it unexpectedly fails to work. Imagine the frustration of being stuck in an app or on the same screen without the ability to navigate freely through your device. We’ve seen hundreds of devices with home button issues and have the tools to successfully repair or replace the button at any one of our CPR locations.
If you’re like most people, you probably never shut off your device. Because of this, the power button is likely to be the least used component on your phone. However, when your device freezes and needs to restart, the battery dies, or you need to turn it back on once it’s connected to a charger, the power button suddenly becomes crucial. A broken power button will leave you with a lifeless phone and a major inconvenience.
Water Damaged Device
Another common issue we see is water damage. If your phone has taken a plunge into the pool or any other liquid, take it to our technicians as soon as possible. Once you notice the water damage, turn off your device immediately and remove the battery if possible. Next, forget the bag of rice trick, as it can cause more damage, and bring your device to the professionals. We bring water-damaged devices back to life every day.
Device ports can wear out over time, even more so if you bend or twist the cable when unplugging. You may also experience an issue where your charging cable breaks and gets stuck in the port. Be careful—trying to remove pieces or repairing it yourself can lead to further damage. In these situations, it’s best to contact professional help to avoid further damage.
New smartphones often boast about battery life of 24 hours, but eventually, they may struggle to make it through your morning commute without dying. If this sounds familiar, it’s because batteries wear down over time and can’t perform at full capacity for their entire life. Don’t live your life connected to the power outlet. We offer numerous charging solutions to ensure you get the most out of your battery.
