If you can feel excess heat, then something is shorting or pulling excessive current. Take the screen off, inspect the connectors, inspect the small parts in the screen assembly and re-assemble. You may have a faulty replacement screen or incorrectly mated the connectors.

If you notice anything odd, then report back with more details and we will be happy to help.

This usually is a result of a short in the FFC flex caused by using metal tweezers.

When I am elected king...I will ban people from using metal tools on electronics.


@joshw now I'm in trouble... ;>)
