Samsung s7 repair.

Recommended Posts

Have a Samsung s7 which was water damaged a week after getting it last year. Does charge but screen completely unresponsive. Quoted £180 to fix in UK by a phone repair shop. Took it to my local guy in KK and he reckins Samsung thailand may repair it. Any ideas of cost of this and if they would even repair a UK Samsung device? Shop in UK reckons it needs a new screen but maybe it is the internal board that is damaged? 

 

Any similar experiences most welcome. Using my A5 which is now 3 years old and still my favourite.

 

Have tried to find a xaomi to play with but 6 months and two provences later It still eludes me.

If you are in Pattaya you could go to the Samsung Service Center. You will upfront be quoted a price as per standard price list.

 

The center is located on Pattaya Nua not too far from the busstation (same side).

Had a similar problem with my J7 a few months ago in the big flood of 2017.

Samsung service centre in Silom quoted me 6K baht for a new screen and mother board.

Bought a Huawei GR5 2017.

If my quote is anything around that I'll bite there hand off. Thanks for info. I am thinking it will be more as the s7 has a curved screen or something.  This was reason for high quote in uk anyway. We shall see.

In Bangkok's China Town, Klong Thom Area, there a lot of Repair shops which do very good jobs at a low cost. Mainly, you could just wait for the repair be done within an hour or so. Don't go to the MBK, the prices there mainly double as at Klong Thom.

Good timing. Took it to samsung today who quoted just under 5k baht.

 

Bit unsure of how it will pan out they seemed hesitant to repair the phone but maybe thry will sort it. Will find out in 2 days.

Took s7 to samsung repair centre khon kaen.

 

4800 baht. Works like new.

New screen I think was repair.

 

Very pleased with everything. Was quoted £180 in London so a massive saving and sorted within 48 hours.

 

The best part was my Mrs trying to say I should just buy a new phone. Her face when I showed her was worth the cost all on its own. 

 

Thanks to those that contributed.

Just seen this and it's similar to my problem. 

 

I've got a Samsung S7 Edge which was bought in the UK. It was dropped and the glass back (not the screen) was broken.  My wife phoned the Samsung repair centre in Roi Et, which we've used before for her old phone but there seems to be a problem as it wasn't bought in Thailand.  Not sure of the exact problem but it seems they check the imei number before they repair.  

 

I'm flying back to the UK on the 3rd of March so I'll probably end up getting it done then but it's more difficult because I need my phone more there than here. A longer term issue is that I gave my wife my old UK bought S6 so if that had problem so might I. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks for that.

 

I'm on the south eastern side of Mahasarakham so Roi Et is about half the distance. I'll try there again but if not then I'll go to Khon Kaen.

We never phone places to get info. We used to do that and it was unclear or Ill advice. That Samsung repair, first thing they said was "not have part cannot do" no Solution offered they thought that was end of discussion. Pressed them to order part fix phone 100% and no rush required. So it was not 100% smooth and because of that I was not totally convinced they would solve it. They also voiced concern that back of phone might not look like new. It was fine. Good luck.

My version of the S6 was never sold in Thailand - Samsung in CM still happily fixed it.
