iPod Nano 6th Generation LCD Adhesive Recommendation?

Hi all,

I just replaced an LCD on my nano. Looks good. Works fine. Only problem I am experiencing it with the adhesive. I bought the custom precut adhesives from ebay but they seem a bit too narrow. When placed on the ipod they seem to sit a little below in the recessed area so the LCD doesn't make enough contact with it to stick.

Anyone have any adhesive recommendations?

Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks for the links. Were there other options for the tape? The LCD I bought was the same price as the tape and shipped free! The shipping on the tape is half the price of the tape itself.

@gob15 search on eBay for the red "ultra sticky double sided tape", thin, strong and cheap

Thanks. That tape does seem thinner than even the pre-cut adhesive being sold for the nano. I can give it a try though and see how it works out.

Hi Christopher, also absolutely vital is to clean all surfaces with alcohol before trying to stick down. Also, I found that leaving the backing tape in place on the cable side until you have got the screen ribbons tucked in, really helps. Good luck ☺☺
