ribbon 3 doesn't slide all the way in, some bronze will show. ribbon 1 is for lcd-is this loose? check for dirt or bent pins on ribbon and on board. have you got the right part? is this a first generation/3g or 3gs. the parts are not interchangeable. if all these things are right then it may be the part is faulty or you have damaged the new lcd during installation.

is the phone still ecognized by iTunes? if not, there must be a problem with the dock onnector ribbon, try to test the conection on this one. it is the larges connector inside, on te top of the dck connector...


if the ribbon does not slide in, it does not matter. that ribbon is only for mic and proximity sensor. its those two other connectors. those two must be seated fully, otherwise it wont work...

does it get picked up by itunes? did you try to reset it?
