After Replacing Glass Panel, Can't Use Suction Cup To Pry Open
Hey there everyone, I recently replaced my iPhone 3GS's glass panel about 2 weeks ago. Everything works fine, except I can't use my metal spudger or the suction cup to open the whole front panel display again. Why do I need to do this again?, you may wonder. Well this is pretty stupid, but, my iPhone 3GS has had some alignment issues every time I take the logic board. For example, the day I took out my front panel display to replace the broken glass, I decided to change the battery on my phone as well. Now however the logic board is a bit slanted and the sim tray won't fit back inside it. Like you know how you can easily slide the sim tray back in with your sim in it? Mine isn't able to slide back in because the sim slot inside the logic board isn't properly aligned with the rectangular-like hole at the top of the iPhone 3GS. The problem is the fact that when I attempt to use a suction cup to pry open the whole front panel assembly, only the new glass panel pops open and it exposes the LCD, and the home button, basically, the frame is what gets exposed. I can also see the little sticky adhesive strips there too. The adhesive isn't sticky enough and that's probably why the whole front panel assembly doesn't come off in one piece. Btw, I am only able to pry the front panel out very slightly, perhaps, leaving exactly 1 inch. I've been living with no usable phone for the last 2 weeks and I was way to busy to even have time to fix it. Thank you in advance, and I'd really appreciate it if someone can help me with a way to get this opened.
Quick Run Through:
*Can't pop off entire front panel assembly
*Logic board not aligned properly
*Sim Tray won't go in
*Phone is not usable
This is how it should look like when it's opened (This is what I want to do with it): (Done with my dad's iPhone 3GS)
However, this is what my phone looks like when I use a suction cup to open it:
Sim Card Tray won't slide in: (This is the furthest it will go.)
Once again, thanks in advance and thank you very much for taking the time to read and go over my problem.
Is this a good question?
