cracked touch screen,unresponsive to touch, display without damage

Hi,

my mobile phone fall down and unfortunately my touch screen is cracked. Partially its unresponsive to touch, but LCD is totally OK.

I contacted authorised service centre and they told me, that its only possible to change the whole screen with LCD, not just digitizer (because of adhesive between). Of course, its quite expensive... Thats why I ask for advice. I found on ebay just Digitizer for my phone, but I am not sure, if I will be able to replace it...

Do you have some manual or good advice?

Thanks a lot.

This is what happened to my iphone 5! It was badly cracked, I got it replaced nearly last week, it was working ok, but honestly really slow, and freezing constantly, but it was still working. Today, I noticed a long crack line down the screen, that I have never noticed before... all of a sudden, it wont respond at all, literally at all! I can't pay $150 again.. this is the 3rd time I've gotten it fixed by the same guy, and they charged me $150 each time.. now it's not working?! over 1 crack! I don't know what to do.

Hi. I dropped my iPhone 5c last night. When I dropped it, the screen was totally cracked. And the screen was also glitching. After a while. A red light appeared by the earpiece when it wasn't even near water. And now the screen won't turn on. Only a black light. What is wrong and what can I do to fix it

Well my advice it and do not do it yourself. Go to your service center and get it replaced. In future use a good quality tempered glass screen protector having 9H hardness rating for protection. You may consult this http://www.akshatblog.com/use-glass-scre...

Our Lenovo S8-50LC tablet had been dropped on the concrete-floor and its touchscreen was cracked. Although the LCD is unbroken, the display seems non-responsive to touch. Several commerce site is selling just the touchscreen for my tablet model. Can anybody tell if just the touchscreen is repairable without changing the LCD for the particular tablet model (Lenovo S8-50LC)?

Martina,

It sounds like you probably won't be able to replace just the digitizer. Many new smartphones feature screens where the LCD panel is fused to the digitizer (Like yours). This makes the phone thinner, but harder and more expensive to repair. If you want to fix your screen, you're unfortunately going to have to replace the whole display assembly (LCD&digitizer).

3 times huh

If the dick charged you a bill 50 again when you returned it the second time not working

Paying it and returning a third time to pay again another 150

Is straight dumb dude

I just bought a note 3 in great condition for less then that online

So it's not that you can't afford another 150

You just can't afford to waste another 150.

Take some time and browse

Don't impulse buy anything

And for God sake stop going back to that repair guy.

He is laughing his ass off by now for sure.

Also

Try to fix it yourself.

The only thing that's hard is to replace the glass only

But glass LCD and digi

Less then 5 min with right tools

Which any jewelry repair will have

Or tell you where to get them

Same as any glasses repair.

Anything any human can do

You can do to

You tube will teach you how to make extasy, meth and ,black tar heroin

So for real your screen still not working

Is 100% your fault .

Ciao! Or, as me, you have to buy a molibdenum wire to separate it heating with a heat gun and a tube of loca glue. It's hard to do.

It is possible but very hard to replace both in the first place. But it is almost impossible if your not super good to replace just one. I did two screen and LCD repairs and lost screws and stuff single inside.

The problem is that the screen has cracks, yet you cannot see them due to the depth of the crack. Therefore if the crack(s) disturb the digitizer and its components the system will not be able to recognize any contact with you or a stylus. You would have to replace the LCD Touch Screen and Digitizer. This is not to hard to do and you'll save more money as you can purchase the new touch screen and digitizer on ebay and required tools on iFixit...

Hope this helps
