Ear piece not working, but ribbon 3 is inserted.
Hi everyone, this is my first post but I have been reading around the site for a while and recently used used the guide to change my cracked screen.
First time round I just changed the screen and digitizer and kept my LCD, but a threaded screw meant a bit of force damaged the LCD so I had to replace this aswell.
After just changing my glass and digitizer the ear piece was still working (although it was hard to see how to test it through the wrecked LCD).
However now after changing my LCD the ear piece will not work along with the proximity sensor however speakerphone does work.
Now I've read that this is obviously the ribbon #3 which wasn't inserted fully. However I've had many goes and I'm confident it is in as far as it will go (not all the way but as far as I've seen in videos).
So is this a damaged ribbon? If I took it into an apple store would they laugh me out of the store after replacing the screen myself and it being out of warranty or would they give it a go trying to fix it?
Any help welcomed. Thanks a lot, Will
Is this a good question?
