MoonSapphireDemon: This video helped me a lot. I didn't have any problems with my battery
because I had to hunt down and buy a new S2 battery but whenever I plugged
in the USB into the phone charging port, it felt as if it wasn't exactly in
there all the way. It wiggled around in the port and if I push it up one
way and bend it another, the red light comes on saying that it's charging
but as soon as I let go of the cable and set it on a flat surface, the
Patrick Mcglynn: do you know where I can find the sim card reader for the galaxy s2 so I can
replace it? on amazon I was able to find alot for the notes and the s3
Paul Lego: Hi, please how to how resolve charging problems.While charging my S2, a
message pops up saying " charging stopped because of low battery
dreamygirl1994: hi i would like to ask for you're help, my samsung won't work I took it to
three people to fix it they all say they need to change the mother boarde I
asked if they could keep the memory save because is have too many dear
things I don't want to loss but they said its to hard and they can't do it,
you seem to have good knowledge about this would u be able to do a tutorial
about how to change the I know i'm asking for too much but you would be
giving me great help and it would be a favour I will be always thankful
Tyndle: Thank you for the video! I browsed few other ones but you explained the
parts and the disassembling process the best. Thank you for the help, my
phone that well in the toilet and didn't start up anymore now functions
perfectly!! I'm still baffled that I fixed my phone only with isopropyl
alcohol and a tooth brush :D
ellie rivera: I really need help ASAP! I dropped my galaxy and it kept turning off at
random times and just vibrating softly every 2-3 seconds. I tried fixing it
and taking out the battery and when I try turnint it on it only stays on
the boot screen, it doesn't go further than that, what should I do?!
jordan lowes: hi man my simcard is broke do you think i can change the simcard i went to
mitro they say i need new board but i find the simcard online
Mike Post: It's true, actually. Pure ethanol is NOT sold in most countries. It is sold
with the added methanol that is toxic and deadly in very small doses.
Blitz4000: A bit true but that liquid is a solvent which evaporates too quickly and
cannot totally eliminate friction and it's also non-conductive. The best
way is to have the device, including you, properly grounded.
Leona Moran: My Galaxy S2 stopped ringing, no notifications, no sound with music and
there is no sound when I have it on speaker phone. I tried to turn up all
the setting for the volume and still nothing. I can hear and be heard on
phone calls. Does the speaker need to be replaced?
MrSpywhite: @seanlen1981 buy a walldock charger off ebay, they are cheap and work well,
also consider buying a second battery. that way you always have a charged
battery ready to go. I was never able to get the USB charge working, it
must have been damaged beyond repair.
Peace!!!: Thank you and God bless you friend.You saved me at least 250
dollars.Subscribing just to be thankful.
yoboihte: Hi MrSpywhite, my S2 power button is malfunctioning, i disassembled it and
tried to look for a short but couldnt find anything, is there any way to
fix the power button? The problem with it is that it starts the phone when
i put the battery and it keeps turning off on the splash screen and keeps
vibrating every couple seconds after that.
thehybridlycan: i spoke to soon, now the power on/off button not working. had to take out
battery to put in sd card. now it wont switch on nor would it show charging
TrickerBrad: I fell in a pool with my phone 6 months ago, it had not turned on since.
After watching your video I took it apart and cleaned it all up and now it
semi works. Thanks for the video. I do however still have some issues, the
Micro SD slot is not recognising cards and, I can't get any signal from my
provider. I have been looking in to replacing the atenna. It is just the
antenna cable I want to replace? Online some places say the speaker section
is also an antenna? Any help would be great, Thanks
aminuk23: that brush is made of plastic not wool so the answer 2 ur question is no it
won't generate static.
TheSquallies: Hey, I was wondering if there are any water damage indicators on the back
side of the board or is there just the one in the battery bay?
MrSpywhite: @pleepotnl have you tried a new battery and what parts, if any have you
WRINGAVIDMASTER: hahahahahahha its F***ed! microwave hahahahahahahhahahhahah
MrSpywhite: @MrSpywhite err that should be "before you flashed the stock rom, you wiped
all data caches."
Sharon Zuck-Dignard: I have a Samsung S IIX I really need a circuit board if your video doesnt

Gaynor Barnes: Get your facts straight before slagging British people off and learn how to
spell !! Idiot !
Christian Salmeron: Hello, i need your help, how can i replace the power switch for my samsung
galaxy s2 epic 4g d710?
Dyallo: Hey MrSpyWhite. My phone is all eff'd up. At first, it wouldn't connect to
my computer (tried 3-4 different computers), all it did was start charging
via USB. Then today, I tried blowing into the USB-port to clear out any
dust. Then after that, it wouldn't even charge through niether USB or AC
charger. I'm thinking the USB port is messed up in some way. Any ideas?
blue1985stfu: How is that speaker assembly held into that case? Mine just went out and I
had ordered a replacement part.
jNwad A.: Thank you man! but i have problem with my galaxy s2 it is restart when i

seconds when i plug the charger and when i unplug the charge the pointer of

Patrick Thornberry: Try going into settings > sound > volumes, then adjust the ringer and
notification volume to full, or desired volume.
DoxTheOnenOnly: Hey dude I rooted my tmobile galaxy s2 and after rooting the softbuttons
won't work anymore. I've done all the "software" methods of changing
kernels and stuff and reflashing stock roms etc. but nothing has been
helpful. Is there anyway to disassemble the phone and see if theres
anything I can do hardware wise?
Gonzalo Rayo: Hi man, I change the usb flex cable following your other video, and now the

TrickerBrad: Fixed the Memory card Slot with some additional cleaning, and also I
replaced the antenna cable, This did not help with my reception issues,
after googling for hours I fear I may have some how activated the external
antenna at some point thus (Acording to many forums) breaking the internal
one somehow, So im going to get a quote from a repair centre as I can't
find anyway for myself to fix this issue. Again Great Video, Thanks!
muney: hw do u take the chip off, and hw do you change imei plz need help !!
Endo Gamy: In UK the government forbids the sell of any type of cleaning alcohol from
any supermarket or chemist store.... there is a concerne that their sick
Brits might drink it!!!
MrSpywhite: @Masuuuuud Without opening it and looking for broken internals? First guess
would be the screen, considering it's cracked that would be the first thing
I would replace.
maria mercado: My phone shut down by itself and turns back on and the power button wont
work when i try to lock the screen ... What do you think it might be the
MrSpywhite: Use an electrical contact cleaner that is safe for printed circuit boards,
use it sparingly, and only on the water damaged areas. Apply it with a very
soft tooth brush or even a cotton swab. Do not spray it directly onto the
board even if it says it's safe to do so.
MrSpywhite: @DoxTheOnenOnly it's a software problem I would imagine. Wiping all data
caches when installing any ROM is fairly important. So unless you damaged
it physically, I am betting it's software related.Guessing that after you
flashed back to the stock ROM you wiped all data caches, and after the ROM
flash you did a factory reset as well?
zlaten zlate: i had the same problem... but no 1 pushed me and it fell in a toilet...
with a piss... the moral of the story is that in 2 days time didnt trurn

i bought external charger and 5 spare baterrys... GL mate...

Luis Torres: @MrSpywhite The phone is working normally, but the screen is red :(
Peace!!!: Thanks a lot buddy.My phone turned on and is working fine.Just have one
problem left.GPS keeps saying searching for gps when gps location is turned
on and under direct sky.Would you please tell me where the gps receiver
is.I will give that a clean and see how it goes.Thanks again.
Patrick Thornberry: Scratched the screen? It's probably cracked, mine fell from the second
story of my house, down to the first, and shattered the digitizer and the
amoled display (LCD screen) the phone still turns on but no display is
shown and the touch screen does not respond, so this could be what possibly
happened to you, and in this case the whole front screen will need to be
replaced, the LCD display comes glued to the digitizer, it would be better
to have an experienced person replace it for you.
fettesps: It was my understanding that methylated spirits were commonly available
there, often used by backpackers to fuel their stoves. It's basically the
same as rubbing alcohol.
Sean Lenehan: Hello, I have a problem with my sgs2 that i bought 2nd hand. It says it

they checked it and told me it cant be fixed!! i already have an s4 but my
question is - can i take out the internal memory to retrieve my photos and
videos that were on the phones memory? if i can remove it, can i then

pleepotnl: Sir, i also have a problem with my sg2.I fell into a pool and when i came
home i did my phone in a bucket of uncooked rise for several hours. When i
tried to start it up i heard some bubbling but it didnt start up. The next
day i tried again but no respons at all. I followed the steps in your video
but it still doesn't work. Have you any idea what the problem could be?
Srry for my english and i really, really hope you answer :S Thx,
MrSpywhite: I would open it, clean it and replace all parts that have corrosion or
damage. You may have damaged the screen.
