When doing this repair there is a lot that you have to pay attention to. did you double-check that you didn't rip the fpc cables for the charging port and the battery? Are you certain that you made all of your connections correctly with the new screen? When installing the new LCD Assembly did you manipulate the cables in an abnormal manner that may have caused damage to the connections on the LCD where the cables connect to the screen and not the other end where the FPC connections are? Please provide more info!

What I saw is that when theropod restarted, the screen went normal and now I can use it, but now one side of the screens has white lines and in the left side the touch doesn't work at all, so I am assuming now that the digitizer came out loose, because I tested the camera, battery, screen and everything but those lines is perfectly working


What you have, I believe is improperly seated cables. Anytime you experience "White Lines", "Blocks" or the Digi not responding properly the first place you should check is the FPC connectors.

1)Remove the screen.

2) Inspect the FPC connectors both onboard and on the screen. You will need a form of magnification for this task. Look for misaligned pins, damage to the FPC connectors or debris that would prohibit proper seating of the cables.

3) If everything check outs, attempt to seat the cables again. Oftentimes a gentle rocking of the connections with your fingers will encourage proper alignment of the connection. Be very careful though as you could damage the FPC connector while doing this.

4) Test the screen again for proper functionality.

**If you are experiencing the same symptoms then begin at step one and repeat the process until proper alignment and functionality is achieved.

Let me know if this helps!


Yet another possibility is that you have damaged the LCD Assembly by not having the FPC connectors aligned properly. If you experience "flickering" or "fluttering" of the LCD then this is most certainly the case and you should replace the LCD Assembly before proceeding any further.


Sorry for the delayed answer. Actually It was indeed a loose connector. I re opened my screen and connected tightly. My screen went back to normal and working

Thanks for the big help
