Left sound not working with headset
Hi, I only got my Samsung Galaxy S7 NON Edge about 4 weeks ago and already have a problem. It was bought online from Best Buy, FWIW and they won't replace it, they want to send it out for service.
The headset jack was always tough with getting jacks in and out of it. Now the left side audio doesn't work except sometimes it's only the right side that works (I'm thinking a jack part is bent and shorting).
My first question is will I void my warranty working on it. Second, will Best Buy tend to replace or repair and would they tend to give an old used one?
If I do the repair in the video here, there is no mention of the waterproofing seal of the back plate, is that built into back plates where I would want to buy a new back plate? I don't want to lose my water resistance.
I saw some sites talk about using a bent sewing needle to pull the possibly bent piece back in place, but I cannot see inside well enough, it must be badly bent.
I have indeed bought all the tools required in this video since in the future I want to learn how to work on phones, but the video doesn't indicate how long to use the heat gun or how to replace the water seal or whatever the method is.
Also, how do I clean the old seal off? If I use adhesive remover the stuff sold here is very expensive, what other adhesive removers will work?
Is dit een goede vraag?
