Aftermarket digitizer makes falsereads

About a year ago i replaced my entire LCD and apparently it was a garbage screen as the glass separated from the frame on the upper half of the device, at times the digitizer would go insane and make false reads on the lower half of the screen but when i pushed the top half it would go back to normal.

Yesterday i simply glued back the screen to the frame successfully but now the false reads are even worse and i have come to find out that the only way to get this problem to stop for a while is to push the lower part of the screen slowly by the edges.

The frame has a bit of wiggle room the right side but i figured that wouldn't make a difference as the LCD and digitizer is attached to the glass not the frame and wont effect the pressure between them as the pressure seems to be the problem here.

Its also worth to note that i small glass less part in the left lower corner that reveals just a glimpse of the LCD

I'm looking for help to diagnose this problem as im currently out of ideas so feel free to ask questions about the condition and what happens to the phone when you do X.

Unfortunately the best solution to this is to probably replace the whole front screen assembly with a quality screen as the glass has already separated from the front display frame.

You can buy a screen from here:

So you think that the glue between the glass and the digitizer is the problem, couldn't i just replace the glass then even though that's a much harder repair i dont feel like spending 119$ on a repair i could do for 20$


Replacing just the glass is not an easy task. You can get very high quality digitizers with cold pressed glue on the frame that wont separate like your screen is doing. Revamp wholesale, Injured Gadgets and Mobile Sentrix are all great suppliers where you can get very high quality parts for around 75 to 90 bucks.


The glass is fused to the digitizer on your screen. Any gap or debris in there will make it basically worthless. Also, removing the old glass is not an easy task and requires very expensive equipment to do properly.
