Hi Gareth,

It seems to me that the rectangular connector of the digitizer (it is the black ribbon cable that is labeled with a white "J3" and is in charge of the touchscreen) was not clipped on correctly in the first place.

[The iPhone 3G can be switched off even without a working touchscreen by pushing the power button on the top right.]

I would just reconnect connectors #1 to #3 in reversed order. Then, when closed, connect your iPhone to your power supply through the synch cable and see what happens.

I hope I understood your problem...
