Good ways to seal the Backlight from LOCA glue?

Hey everyone!

I've been giving glass-only repairs a try recently, and the only issue I came in contact with was where LOCA glue would enter the backlight of the LCD. I've seen many videos and guides already, and some suggest just using a mold, others say blue tac works well, but there doesn't seem to be a good solution to this yet.

Therefore I wanted to ask if anyone has more experience in this and if anyone has any suggestions.

Yes, I know that OCA exists, but I want to keep the repairs affordable. I have seen an item on eBay which is a LCD backlight sealant (some sort of glue which is put onto the sides of the LCD (http://www.ebay.de/itm/371221025033)) but I have not seen any reviews about it yet. I also tried using electircal tape, but liquids get underneath anyway. Maybe thin double sided sticky tape works? I have also heard people removing the backlight first, but how do you reattach it?

Also little sidenote: Does a LOCA glass replacement work on iPhone 6s too? It should, but since the 6s has 3D touch, this may be a problem.

I would be happy to hear from you guys!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello

I actualy saw a video on youtube where this perticular guy replaced glass on lg G3 (the same structure of LCD build as iPhone 5, 6,.. , Sony meaning they have LCD put into the light box where always apear problem when using LOCA glue because it always get in between lcd and ligtbox. So as I mentioned above this perticular guy used doublesided RED (one of the strongest doublesided tapes I ever used) tape placed on the very edge of the LCD , all four sides meaning upper, lower, left and rigt side but not more then 1,5mm

from the edge. You should definately consider this technique as well. Keep on doing the good work.

P.S. Sorry for my English since it is not my native language.
