Do I need to replace digitizer or LCD screen on Nokia Lumia 820?

Hello everyone!

I dropped my Nokia Lumia 820 on the ground.

The phone works as I can turn it on, but I can't see anything.

After dropping it, I noticed a few (perhaps behind the glass) cracks. I could still click on things, but everything was fading until now where almost the entire screen is black.

So basically, I can turn it on, I can theoretically click things but there is no point as the screen is now black.

Do I need a phone digitizer or LCD screen?

Andy, since you can not see anything, you will need a new LCD. Personally I recommend a new display assembly which includes the digitizer. A lot less hassle and almost guaranteed to work without any issues. Hope this helps, good luck.

Thank you very much for your answer! :)

I've decided to buy a new LCD. The YouTube videos of replacing the LCD on the 820 makes it look somewhat easier than other phones. Hopefully all goes well!

Thanks once again!
