Cellular Source is capable of all different types of board repairs. With the most state-of-the-art equipment around, we can offer many services that other local facilities cannot. Below are a few of the repairs we do on a daily basis, but anything requiring soldering, microsoldering, and hot air reworking are able to be done. We offer discounts for various organizations, including but not limited to education, military, law enforcement, and many more. All you have to do is ask!

If you are having trouble charging your device with several different chargers or your port has become loose, this is most likely what you need. Many charging ports are attached to the the main motherboard at several different solder points. Those require a good amount of heat and the right tools to replace successfully. Some need only to be repaired, while others require replacing. The most important part your device is the charging port. Make sure it is done correctly. Turnaround time and price vary by device.
Whether you attempted to repair your device yourself and botched a connector, or you took it somewhere else that did the same thing, we can help. All flex cables on your device plug into the motherboard and their connectors are very fragile. We will replace the connector if it became damaged. Turnaround time and price vary by device.
There are many things that can cause no backlight or no display. Sometimes a connector reflow is what is needed, sometimes a filter or diode need replacing, and other times it could simply be a bad display or flex. Turnaround time and price vary by device.
When performing a DIY repair, it is very easy to knock tiny capacitors, filters, etc. off the motherboard without noticing it. This will lead to many issues, including no power, battery percentage errors, home button not working, etc. Often times this can be fixed with donor boards, sometimes with new parts, and other times we may require you to send in a donor board with your device if it is a rare model. The extent of the damage will determine turnaround time and price.
We offer an extensive water damage treatment service for devices who have recently been exposed to liquid. This involves removing all cables and plugs, de-soldering and removing all heat shields, flushing through an ultrasonic cleaner, scrubbing with isopropyl alcohol, reflowing any connections or components that need it, and replacing any components that are damaged. Our main focus for water damage repair is data recovery. Do not expect to receive a fully functional device once we are finished. Our goal is to provide you with enough of a repair to be able to retrieve your data. Once a device gets wet, there is no guarantee that it will be 100% again, so we do not ensure that. The extent of the damage will determine turnaround time and price.
Just because we are a cell phone repair shop by name, doesn’t mean we are only capable of repairing phones. In our 4 years of business, we have repaired numerous devices outside the cell phone world. Any device or electronic equipment that requires soldering is in our field of repair. Feel free to contact us with any of your repair needs, whether it be for cameras, stereos, GPS’s, medical equipment, or anything else you might have. Turnaround time and price will vary by device.
Cellular Source supports “Cell Phones For Soldiers” and donates all old, used, broken phones to this cause. This organization collects cell phones, break them down, sell their parts, and use the proceeds to buy calling cards for our troops overseas. Please help us support this cause!
