I should come with instructions. But, I know that most folks stare blankly at instruction booklets, toss them to the side, do things how ever they think is the better or best way to do things, and if lucky enough get tossed into a drawer to refer to later.
And that pretty much sums up my life.
I told you so!
What is this (possibly conductive) gray foam adhesive called and whereI have a theory about touch issues that occur after the glass/digitizer replacement on tablets. I believe that the issues...
回答“Galaxy note 2, black screen after repair”I have had a similar problem with a recent repair that I did. However, the replacement LCD assembly that I ordered worked properly. It may be a faulty part that y'all received. LCD assemblies are sensitive pieces of hardware when shipped alone without the mid-frame. Simply dropping a phone and not having signs of breakage can cause an LCD to not function. Anyways.. I'm interested in hearing how this turns out for you. Hopefully the replacement part is the cause! You may consider reordering the replacement part with the frame already attached to the LCD assembly. That is predominately how I order my replacements as they are less likely to suffer any shock damage. Oh! One tip for your friend. Check the cables that are at the top of the LCD without the glass on (of course) as they have a tendency to bunch-up and bend to extreme angles when removing the glass. It's an inevitable thing, but it is wise to inspect them. DO NOT PULL UP ON THE CABLES AS THEY ARE ATTACHED TO THE LCD/DIGITIZER/BACKLIGHT BACKING!
回答“LCD not working after glass replacement?”Njcummings - chances are that you broke the backlight layer of the lcd assembly. So.... You will have to replace more than just the glass (which is the outermost layer of the Screen assembly).
回答“LCD not working after glass replacement?”I've personally replaced about 30 screens. I've had one break on am LCD that was not attached to the mid-frame properly (the sticker covering the adhesive was not even removed!) Therefore when I applied the slightest amount of pressure the whole LCD shattered! I almost think the phone is a knock-off. The second one I've had issue with is the Note 2 currently in my possession. The backlight (LCD) won't show a picture, but the touchscreen is working as well as the home button and menu/back buttons. I think I'll try the fix stated above regarding loosening the screws surrounding the headphone jack. If that doesn't work, I'll try the front facing camera/led/sensor as I noticed that the screw took an unusual amount of torque to reattach. And if worse comes to worse I'll remove the glass, clean the lcd, inspect the cables, the top portion of the lcd where the digitizer, lcd and backlight attach. I really hate making customers wait, but at the same time I have them all sign a waiver that states, " Two out of 30+ ...
