Replaced screen and digitizer, but touch doesn't work

History

My son's Asus T300 had a cracked screen and wasn't responding well to touch. So I purchased the replacement parts. I replaced the parts. I put the think ribbon back the one next to it with the tiny wires connected. But touch doesn't seem to work.

is there anything else I can try? Is there a software thing I have to do in order to get it to recognize the new hardware?

No answer for you but just went through the same thing. Never any problem with touch screen, then dropped and cracked screen. Didn't work. Bought new digitizer and just installed without sticky tape for testing purposes. Getting the same result. What else could have broke when I initially dropped it so only touchscreen would not work? Used the keyboard with it so I know everything else works.

Im having kind of the same problem. I am working on one for a friend and replaced the LCd and kept the digitizer. Everything went smooth. Until i was taking the digi from the lcd. A small crack near the bottom of the digi appeared but it was small and in the black bezel area. Got it back together and touch screen wouldnt work. Left it alone for a bit and got back to it and tried to seperate the digi from the lcd again. Another small crack formed. This time near the digi cable in the black outside area. Still not bad but this time i tried to really seal the digi back down on the lcd. I think the sticky pad around the outside is causing a bad buffer between the lcd and digi. When i tried the reseal now half the screen worked or slightly less. It sounds like its a matter of sealing up the digitizer to the lcd firm enough. Hopefully in my problem the second digitizer break didnt end all hope.

Mark,

I found that the digi and the lcd work independent of one another. There is nothing to worry about the"buffer" between the two. In my case, the first digi I got the ribbon/glass connection point started peeling up and I got intermittant operation. (Luckily I didn't stick everything together yet). With my second digi I got, intermittant operation again. Eventually found that the connector, both digi and lcd were finicky. I used the sticky and the existing foam rubber to help keep these connectors in place. Everything good now.

Hmm just replaced the digitizer and touch screen does not work. But it did not work before the change because the old digi was cracked all over. Lcd is good however.

Cables look like they are in all the way and snug. Could i need to reset the software through the software? Maybe the new digitizer is bad?

Mark,

The 2 connectors, lcd and digitizer, are finicky on mine. I had to take tablet apart a couple times to "reconnect" them. I used masking tape to better hold them securely. A loose ribbon cable connector means no digitizer operation. A loose fine wire connector in the center of tablet means no lcd operation. Good Luck

Chris. I have checked and rechecked cables. I now have another digitizer brand new to try out. Still nothing not even intermittent touch. The only thing i have found is the ribbon from the digi board to the main board has one contact kinda scrunched up. It seems like its in far enough to get past the scrunched up part. But even so wouldnt there be intermittent touch?

Could the digi board be bad somehow. ...

When i first did the replacement the screen was working even after i changed the lcd and the old digi first cracked. Cant remember when the digi stopped working all together. But i suspect this ribbon cable and have ordered a new one. Ughhhh, I would say ill never repair another one of these but my experience with them now is getting in depth.
