Title:

Digitizer activating itself after digitiser replacement

Text:

Hi Guys.

I hope someone can help me.

Ok i don't use replacement digitizers that are not pre soldered i think i need to hone my soldering skills before i go anywhere near that.

I always use screens with all the soldering pre done.

I'm asking as this is my last screen & this is is special present for a birthday otherwise i would just put another screen on.

I have fitted the digitizer & it all works fine until i seat the screen onto the adhesive.

Once this happens it works fine for a couple of minutes but then the screen starts to activate itself swiping through screens opening apps & typing into any text field that appears that sort of thing.

Ive also noticed the top half of the screen then becomes unresponsive also.

But as soon as i lift the screen up again it all starts to work fine.

I have a horrible feeling that where the digitizer cable is supposed to bend itself back it has kinked a bit.

I do always with any repair make sure not to trap or crease any cables this must have sprung back as i was seating the screen.

This cable has not creased badly as i hadn't started to press down fully.

Is this the issue or cold there be a way to get this solved.

Thank you in advance guys.
