Will my iPod touch 4g work without any screen attached?
***please take the time to read below as i need fault diagnosis if possible! thanks!****
Some time ago I dropped my Ipod Touch 4G and the screen broke. Well today I finally got around to replacing the glass with a kit i purchased. However, The LCD broke while trying to remove the shattered glass glued to the LCD.....
I noticed during dismatling and re-assembly ofthe unit that after I replaced the glass element (prior to breaking the LCD) that there seemed to be alot of heat coming from the motherboard around the volume buttons. I also noticed that I have accidentally disconnected the blue wire going to the loud speaker, however i'm not really concerned about this right now.
Anyway, after re-assembly i plugged in the old screen (with the old smashed glass still attached) and the new glass seperately, just to check everything was working fine. The ipod did not respond at all. I have attempted to plug it into the computer and see if itunes will recognize it, but it doesnt show up in any applications at all...
Will the ipod work at all without any screens attached? what i mean is, should the computer still register it? or have i damaged something more sinister in the process?
please help! i want to know wether to bother buying an LCD
Is this a good question?
