Is my display defect and need to be replace?

Hello all,

At first, I just wanted to change my home button, but apparently I managed to make my phone looks like this.

Is there any possibility that I could just fix it without replacing it? I tried detaching and reattaching the 4 cable connectors (digitizer, display, home button, and sensor) and the battery connector as well over and over, but it just didnt work.

The grey foam on top of the cable connector is removed completely when I tried to reattach the connector. But its not the real problem, right?

I also thought that maybe the problem is in the flex cable of the display cable connector. Is it possible?

Thank you in advance

The foam doesn't really matter if you scraped it off. Doesn't affect the display from working or not.

Try plugging the phone into the computer and see if iTunes detects it successfully? If it does you might want to take it to a repair shop to get to test the phone if it displays properly on another screen. If it does you can either get them to repair it or you buy yourself a front display assembly and replace the screen.

You can get the part from here:

Yes, I have tried to connect it to the computer and iTunes still recognized it.

So, I assume that my only either display cable connector or digitizer is defect somehow, right?


Digitizer is for the touch screen. It's probably the display gone faulty somehow which needs to be replaced. Probably pulled too much on the lcd ribbon connector or something.


It turns out that it wasnt the display that broken. The repair guy tried using other display, but it didnt work out and in the end he gave up and thought the problem maybe in the board itself. Other than that, is it possible that the cause was short circuit? And is it even repairable?
