LCD Replacement does not detect/register touch?

Hi guys, I recently bought a 3rd generation iPod Touch off of eBay. It was stuck in this plastic slider case and I could not take it out for the life of me. While trying to take the case off I shattered the digitizer.

I bought a replacement digitizer and ended up breaking the original LCD during the repair process. So I bought a replacement LCD off of eBay and replaced it with the broken one. The screen powered on, but it did not detect or register any of my touches.

I sent it back and got another LCD today in the mail, but I still have the same problem. I have not decided to put the digitizer on as I have seen videos where the repair guy touches the actual LCD to make sure the touch works..

The connector port is not loose and I reasearched and the answer seems to be that the motherboard is faulty. What I don't understand is that the touch worked on my broken lcd originally so I don't think thats it. I am desperate.

Does anyone know whats going on?

PS: I have also rebooted the iPod many times, I haven even restored it under DFU mode and plugged in some headphones as other posts have suggested, still nothing.

jay, the lcd is just for the picture, the digitizer is your touch screen...

Excuse my arrogance, but are you 100% positive? I could have sworn I've seen videos where the repair man touches the LCD itself to test it before the digitizer is put on


yes i'm 100 % positive. the touch screen is attached to the glass and not the lcd.


@Jay, sounds like you seen a bad video. iwillfix is absolutely right.
