Replacing the digitizer, did I kill LCD?
Hello fellow fixers,
This was my first LG product for repair. The tablet worked fine except the digitizer was broken and touch did not work. I promptly removed the digitizer and cleaned up to get ready for the new one. I thought I would check the LCD to make sure it was still okay. It did not show to be okay. Nothing but horizontal mayhem.
I did notice that there are contact points around part of the bezel where the digitizer would be making contact with them. And checking the old digitizer I see what looks like a metallic strip running around it. My question is this, does the digitizer have to be in place so it can make rest these contacts before trying to power up and test it?
I hope somebody out there has done work on one of these things…HELP!!!
