Digitizer not working, NOT the logicboard!

Hi guys,

I bought a used 3G on eBay for 100 bucks, real bargain :). The seller said the touchscreen didn't work anymore right after he had had his faulty home button repaired at some crappy online repair service. I've replaced the digitizer, won't work! All connectors seem fine. I replace the entire digitizer/lcd/front panel unit and it works! so it's NOT the logicboard. has anyone ever experienced sth like this? what parts could possibly interfere in this scenario?

Sensor Flex Cable?


Home button?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

what do you mean wrong part? i don't know if the parts that came with the phone are original... i guess that only leaves me with the option of replacing them one by one until i find the solution


3g and 3gs parts aren't all interchangeable. maybe you got the wrong digitiser?


well, kinda.. replacement digitizer was the right part, but they can be faulty as well.



ah. well done for fixing it and getting back to us.
