I can confirm I just had this issue but phone said "too hot". I had loosely assembled the phone without the wireless charger flex installed to test the screen. once I put everything back in place properly it charged as it should. cheers
I've had success using clear cell phone tape. pre-apply the tape so that that it overhangs the edge of the lcd glass, use a VERY sharp exacto blade to trim off the excess. takes patience but provides a good, tight, sticky finish. thanks for reading.
the answer to your problem is to search eBay for "5S style home button". you can get ones that look like the fingerprint scanner (made of glass and aluminum) but don't actually do anything beyond regular iPhone 5 home buttons. I offer these to all my repair clients, they are a really nice improvement on the original plastic buttons. cheers
I haven't done an Air yet but I'm assuming its similar to the problems with iPad mini if you haven't got tape in the proper places along the bottom of the digitizer near the home button. If the digi makes any contact without tape in between it will be wonky. The iFixit guide doesn't make reference to that but its CRUCIAL the new digitizer has tape exactly as the original did. you have to transfer the tape over, it will not come pre installed.
Thanks for your reply Jessa, I found the source of my problem, check out the photo you can see an extra connector pin that was jammed in there. i could not find the source of where it may have come loose, but once i plucked it out the digitizer worked correctly! lesson learned, closely examine new parts before burying them inside a device. i believe this loose extra pin was stuck inside the connector of my first digitizer and it jammed itself into the ipad connector, upon inspection, no connectors were missing a pin.
I'm thinking its the little guy I've circled here in red (under the protective black tape). I don't think the replacement flex connections are as exact as Apple. This part circled holds the corner up from sitting perfectly flat. I've seen this in a few phones now. I've successfully bent the corner of the metal plate on the back side of the flex cable with a set of stiff tweezers but you could damage the connection or cause it to sit worse. UPDATE After getting a couple "white line" replacement screens to work correctly in other phones, I've concluded you must be very careful with the way you fold the flex cables, make it just like the original. if its got too much curve and not enough of a fold it can make the lcd go wonky. I originally tested the screens without fitting them in the frame and they worked but once i fitted them into the frame i got the white lines. i wasn't paying close enough attention to the folds. hope this helps someone UPDATE #2 So I've had this problem again a couple times, and just...
