1 Can one remove display tape, 2 remove tape residu, 3 clean display
Three questions in one:
I need some advice. I’m at step 28 of this screen replacement guide where they say “Remove any tape obscuring the LCD screws”. Instead of just peeling back a small part, I wrongly removed the entire tape, all around the display (not the digitizer) 😬 I don’t know what got into me, but after spending several hours on removing the broken digitizer I got a little enthusiastic by the ease of this removal.
So my question is: Should I replace the tape? And if so with what? And why was it there anyway?
Another question: there’s a thick layer of the residue from the old digitizer tape on the frame. How to best remove it? Using IPA and a cotton swab takes ages and forces some glue down in the frame. But maybe it’s the only way?
Third question: how to best clean the display? There’s some sticky debris on it. My replacement digitizer will go over it so I have only one chance to clean it well.
Is this a good question?
