    Samsung S4 Screen

    I've managed to cook (yes cook) the LCD screen in my Samsung S4, It looks quite easy to replace (video Here).

    But I can't seem to find many people online who sell the correct parts - I need glass and LCD.

    Anybody recommend anywhere?

    That looks like it. Make sure it has the 4 sensor holes acrossvthe top of the screen. The s3 has 3.

    Yeah I emailed the company and they replied within a couple of mins - just managed to get order in before half 4 so hoping it will be here tomorrow,

    S4 + griddle = no lcd working.

    Hopefully you have got some instructions on how to replace it. If its like the ipod touch replacememt it should be easy, if its like the ipohone 4 replacement, it can be a little fiddly. Best of luck with it and dont grill this one :P

    See the video above - looks fairly straight forward! And yeah I'm not working any more festivals for my friend on the griddle plate!

    Just like the iphone 4 replacement, you need to take the whole phone apart to take the front screen of. Best of luck.

    Erm well I was stood in front of the griddle for 6 hours straight with the phone in my pocket, the heat coming out from the burners was making my legs roasting and the phone appears to come off worse...

    I have a friend who does food trailers at festivals - so I was slaving away working for him at Reading festival! And it was rather busy!
