Fixing OLED screens while turned on? New tech in China introduced

Using lasers, a malfunctioning OLED smartphone can be made as good as new without expensive replacement parts

New machine can repair broken OLED panels without turning off the screen

As smartphones have become more durable, they are also more susceptible to damage from water, dust, and other factors. This can lead to malfunctioning screens, which can be costly to replace. However, a new machine that recently debuted in China can repair broken OLED panels without turning off the screen.

The machine uses the same technology and techniques used to manufacture OLED panels, including lasers. This allows it to repair the microscopic conductive wiring that connects all of the panel’s pixels together. The repairs can often be done even with a top layer of protective glass still adhered to the OLED panel underneath.

This new machine is a welcome development for the repair and recycling industry. It means that one of the most expensive components in a smartphone can now be repaired and reused, instead of being replaced. This is good news for the environment, as it reduces the amount of e-waste that is produced.
