How to fix a cell phone screen

A cell phone screen can get damaged easily, especially if the mobile phone is not stored in a case or does not have a screen protector. Cell phone screens have a tendency to become scratched and cracked, which will make it difficult to view the data on the screen.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Try a scratch-remover product. These are available online and in retail locations. Apply a small amount of the cream to the screen, then rub it in until the scratches fade away.

  2. 2

    Apply pressure to the cell phone screen. Stuck pixels are another problem that can occur on a cell phone screen. They'll create discolouration in different areas of the phone. To fix this problem, rub at the discoloured areas with a pen cap to disperse them on the screen.

  3. 3

    Fill any cracks or scratches with a small amount of toothpaste.

  4. 4

    Replace the cell phone screen. If the crack is severe, this may be your only option. You can search for your phone model and purchase a new screen through online stores. To make the replacement, use a screwdriver to pop off the old screen, then snap the new one into place. The process may vary depending on the model. When in doubt, take the phone to a cell phone repair shop to make the switch.
