Screen Adhesive Replacement - Screen Adhesive failed

I replaced my GS3 screen manually and I removed the old adhesive after removing the old screen. It has been two days since I replaced the screen but the new screen adhesive does not hold the screen in place firmly. I can actually lift the screen if I stick my nail into an specific place.

I would like to know what kind of glue or tape I should buy to stick my screen firmly to the phone's frame. I read that the 3M self adhesive tape is good but I want to get a second option.

Is this a good question?

I bought a double sided tape at staples, and put it on top of the old adhesive. It sticked perfectly, but for some reason this made my phone to short circuit, the screen did not turn on again and the phone heated up very fast. I tried removing the tape but it did not work.

If you are using tape on your phone, buy special tape and not some random tape at staples.

Buy the precut adhesive stickers it makes for a much more dustproof and precise fit. They stick very well also.

The professional way to do it is to use UV glue to assure proper bond.
