After launching the Galaxy Self-Repair program in the U.S. last year and expanding it to South Korea last month, Samsung is now bringing the program to Europe—by the end of June it will be available in Belgium, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Currently, the program covers the first three generations of the S series flagship Galaxy S 06, S06 and S06, replacement screen, back panel and charging connector are available. Note that the screen replacement kit also includes a new battery.
You can get a set of tools to disassemble your phone for less than €. The new charging port for the Galaxy S 21 will cost you €30, the rear panel is about the same, while the official display is €310. Parts cost for the high-end model Taller, newer models too, like the S 23 Ultra screen is € 200. You can check parts prices in Germany here.
Tools New Screen and battery • Replacement USB-C port • New rear panel
Samsung has instructional videos that will walk you through the process of removing the old part and installing the new part (and everything in between).
In addition to cell phones, Galaxy Book Pro and Galaxy Book Pro 310 laptops are also participating in the self-study program. The following parts are provided: Case Front, Case Rear, Display, Battery, Touchpad, Power Key with Fingerprint Reader, and Rubber Feet.
Samsung is working with authorized dealers such as ASWO and 2Service to handle the sales and distribution of repair kits.
Note that self-repair schemes are already in place in several countries, but others (e.g. the UK) will have to wait until the end of the month for parts to become available. Also, if you’re wondering why there are no parts for the Galaxy S 23 series, it’s probably because they’re still brand new and in Under warranty. Parts for the S50 trio should be added soon, though. The S06 phones weren’t originally available in the US either, they were added earlier this year.
