The #1 ribbon for the LCD keeps de-attaching
Hello, I opened my Iphone 3G to fix the LCD since i notice when i press hard on the upper right side of the phone, the screen turns white and gives me grey lines(sometimes turns white with orange lines/blue lines etc)
I opened it and i have played with it a little bit to see a pattern for what is causing the screen to turn white and fade away to black(then phone resets). Sometimes if i let it be to reset and let the white screen come back etc. It will eventually turn back on with everything working normally but again when i am touching the screen or when i move my phone, the white screen that fades to black comes back again.
My question is, what can i do to keep the #1 ribbon cable that controls the LCD screen in tact so when i close the Iphone it does not pop out or become loose.
1.) Check to see if anything is bent or in the way (usually this is the problem)
2.) Make sure you hear (or feel) a nice click when you connect the ribbon to the board
3. Repeat step 2 if your still having the problem (if nothing is damaged) and keep patient, take a deep breath, those suckers are tricky.
4.) If your still having problems you might have to change out your display if the ribbon is damaged.
5.) Or if everything is fitting properly and you just want to secure it use some circuit board tape or something that will hold tight but not leave residue.
