    Does anyone in Australia know of a place that can fix a broken oneplus one screen? Im in Victoria.

    Also where is the best place to buy a new screen from please, obviously it needs the digitiser too? I bought one of ebay but its a green in colour, is that right?

    Thanks everyone

    I'm in Victoria too. No one will fix your screen. They have no idea what the phone is.. Lol. Sorry, but you're going to have to replace it yourself. I bought a new screen off Ali express and repaired myself.

    I would say ebay is your best bet, TBH.

    I really hope your screen is compatible.

    I'm in Italy right now, so I can't really help...

    No problem. The web address I got mine from is here: http://www.ali express.com/item/Brand-new-LCD-Display-Touch-screen-Digitizer-with-frame-For-OnePlus-ONE-free-shipping/32261491537.html
    (Remove the space inbetween ali and express, OnePlus blocks their URLs for some reason)

    It's probably cheaper to do that yourself then get someone else to, the cost for a shop to fix is usually around $100, but like I said before, no one will fix it anyway.

    Shipping through the normal Chinese mail is something around 40 days..! I got DHL shipping for $20 more, so it only took about 5 days.

    The good part about this one is that it comes with the metal frame, so if you've dented our scratched the metal frame it's repaired too, and the other part is you don't have to peel of the glass, then replace the LCD, because you really only have to transfer all of the internal components apart from the display (obviously).

    The replacement is great quality, only problem that I have is the notification light is extremely dim. I don't know if the replacement had the LED built in, but if not then it's my fault.

    Good luck!

    hi,

    could you figure out why is the LED notif dim? i face the same problem. The LED module (which is located on the motherboard, not the replacement screen) works perfect, it just doesnt shine through the LED hole.
