As for Samsung tablets, we can repair the majority of them, but due to the large variety of model names and numbers, we can’t list them all here.  If you are uncertain, please bring your Samsung tablet to your local Timpson branch for a quote.

Sadly, we cannot offer repairs on other tablet brands such as Huawei, Lenovo, Acer, etc. at this time.

Q: Is my Data safe?
A: We recommend backing up data but we will not access any documents.  In very rare circumstances where an item is beyond repair some circuitry can be damaged. This is only 1% of cases, and usually is caused by the initial drop or impact, before we’ve even had a look at it.

Q: Will you delete my Documents?
A: No, we do not delete documents.

Q: Why do you need my password/passcode?
A: The passcode is required for testing your device after the repair, to make sure we’ve done the job properly.  This usually just involves moving icons around on the home screen, accessing the camera if it’s been replaced, etc.  Your personal data, photos etc. will not be accessed.
