Replaced digitizer - now phone shorts USB or charger
I just replaced a broken digitizer/scree
This does not occur if I plug the charger in with the screen connected (connectors 1, 2 and 3) but not closed up (screen just hanging there). It seems to be some type of short by the screen assembly. If I hook the top in and leave the bottom open the issue doesn't happen, if I leave the bottom in and the top open, it doesn't happen, but as soon as I fully seat the screen, the power cuts off.
Also, should the battery charge if the screen is completely disconnected? I'd like to get a charge into the thing and then connect the screen and see if it will turn on at all. Even with the screen open and the charger apparently working OK, I cannot get the phone to power up.
Thanks for any insight!
the only thing I can think of is the top screw on the back of the midframe (you slide the LCD under it) is this protruding? you have the right screw? The LCD is pretty flush if it's in that midframe properly..the only part that sticks out would be the earpiece, the screw I mentioned, or that you have not put the motherboard in properly (that's if you have taken it out..) try removing the screw on the back of the LCD and see if that makes a difference. If you have taken the motherboard out try putting the sim in..if it won't go in then the motherboard is the fault here.
you can charge the phone without the display on. I would be very cautious about fiddling about with your display on..backlight in this puppy is very delicate!
