Distortion or white screen when pressing new screen to adhesive?
After replacing the LCD assembly in the Touch 4th generation, I often test the screen before pushing down onto the adhesive by slipping an extra home button under the LCD and powering on the device. Once i see that working, i then complete the repair by pushing the glass into place on the adhesive. I find that pressing the edges of the glass down to make the adhesive adhere sometimes causes me to get a white screen. I have had situation where after this happens I have experienced several problems (with different devices):
1) A hard reset to try and recover causes the device to turn off and never some back on. At this point the device is no longer even recognized by iTunes. i is as though something shorted out.
2) After disassembling and reassembling, carefully checking the connections, i still have a white screen.
Has anyone else experienced things problems on that final step of pushing the digitizer against the adhesive? Any advice/lessons learned?
Is this a good question?
