Battery gets hot and won't hold a charge; plus shattered LCD screen

My son dropped his phone and shattered the glass and LCD screen. Ever since, his phone will not hold a charge and gets very hot after a short use. Can these issues be fixed? Worth fixing?

The glass and LCD can be fix and replaced but the main-board heating up is saying that the board needs to be replaced but you should just purchase new one.

How to replace front glass on this unit


I need the model of your phone to find you a guide. A guide may not have been made for that device, but If not, I can find you a guide where the build and dissembly are identical. (Standard breakdown . remove battery cover. Battery, sim card, SD card, remove screws plastic cover. Use a guitar pick/opening tool to run along the seam to split plastic case. From here. Remove any metal shields (if any) to disconnect all connectors. Such as LCD cameras mic , vol buttons etc. Once freed of connectors remove screws holding logic board down. From here you should be holding a front "clip" just glass. LCD. And digitizer. Depending on your part.if its a complete front clip. The just follow steps in reverse on new front clip. If it's just the glass. You will need a hair dryer or heat gun to heat up glass and make adhesive loose enough to separate the glass from the frame. Once separated . follow steps in reverse. Take lots of pics during disassemble to remember location and order )

It worked for a while and I was able to recharge it, but now it won't hold a charge.


If the cell phone battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

I dropped my pantech ease and the screen shattered but the phone still works. Is there anyway to replace the glass?


Hi kellyward309,

You can buy a replacement front housing (including the glass) on eBay.

Type in "pantech ease housing" in eBay, currently there is a USA seller with Pantech Ease front cover for about USD$20.00.

If you can't get a replacement under warranty there is both an T-Mobile G1 Repair Guide and a third party T-Mobile G1 Repair Service, If you try a self-repair make sure you feel comfortable with opening devices like that.
