RMA Guide

Best Practice Guide on RMAs
Submitting an RMA
  • Choose a Reason Code

On our individual LCD boxes, you will find stickers with reason codes for processing. Choose the reason code that best applies to the screen you are returning.

We know you are extremely busy and our intention is not to create unnecessary work. The reason we ask for these codes is because they play a vital part of our commitment to quality, and how we can identify where we need to improve. We want to create a trusted experience for you and your clients

    Declined RMAs
    • Products that were not purchased from Sourcely. (how can they know?)
    • Flex cable damage due to careless removal.
      • We find most of these damages on the 7 Series, since they were the first screens to open like a book
      • AVOID IT BY: Open the phone sideways as intended - do NOT open the phone upwards.
    • Ripped cables when frame snags the flex when closing the phone.
      • AVOID IT BY: Carefully installing the flex cable in the new screen and allowing it to bend naturally. Don’t force it down, and check to make sure it doesn’t get caught by the metal frame.
      Before Submitting RMAs Check For

      Returned LCDs with these issues will be declined as RMAs.
