Changed out digitizer no touch

I changed out the home button as well. The home button and the power button work fine. But no touch anywhere on the screen. Is it just a dead screen? I removed everything and put it back together and still nothing.

Also when shutting off the screen blips blue for a second.

When it comes to Apple a blue screen is never a good sign. Normally relating to either Logic board damage or Water damage.

There are some ways to trouble shoot the device though!

If the blue screen is occurring continuously you may want to attempt a restore on the device. As long as the data is not a factor or if you have an iCloud back up for the device I recommend the restore.

After the restore, if you are still experiencing the blue screen there may be damage to the board.

To prevent this issue from happening remember to:

1. Always be grounded when touching on or near the logic board of you device.

2. Keep your screws in order and place them back in the exact spot you removed them from.

3. Don't over tighten your screws. Ever.

The digitizer being unresponsive can be couple of things:

1. A defective part is a possibility, if you have another screen on hand give it a try.

2. I know you have already taken it out and placed it back in but make sure it is connected properly.

3. Finally, if it is related to water damage or logic board damage. A water cleaning or logic board repair may be needed.

Thanks for the reply. The blue screen is just a blip as it shuts off. The home screen and lock screen are normal. I will try a different screen just to be sure.

Ok I swapped out another screen I had that the button did not fit and it had cracked. Touch worked perfect and no blue screen on shutdown.

I am glad I was able to help in guiding your repair!
