Samsung has launched a self-repair program for Galaxy device owners in the US that allows them to do their own repairs on smartphones and cards.

Consumers can also connect to the iFixit Community Forum to ask any questions that will help them understand the specific actions needed to complete a custom repair on their Galaxy devices.
