Digitizer not working, missing capacitor, resistor?

Hello everyone,

The digitizer on my phone is not responsive, the lcd and home button work fine. There seems to be a missing piece on the motherboard, I have included a pic of the board with the missing piece(first pic) and a pic of the same part on a working phone(2nd and 3rd pics). Im not sure what the part is called or where I could get one. Would this missing part even cause the digitizer not to work?

Not sure if that would cause it or not however the only place I have seen so far with parts like that for sale is CyberdocLLC.com

Hope this helps!

He does seem to have some backlight capacitors, but not the ones im looking for. Digikey seems to have a ton of capacitors, however I dont know what rating to use. So if anyone knows that info that would be great.

Ben, not a good idea to just guess and assume it's a capacitor. The part that you are looking for is neither a resistor nor a capacitor. That is reference designator FL34 which is a 120-OHM-210MA in a 1005 package choke filter. A TDK MMZ0402S121C would be a perfect match. Check with digikey on here for a match. Hope this helps, good luck.
