LCD distorts when pressed, LCD cable folded?
Dear members of iFixit,
I'm repairing iPhones for a year or so, and always found solutions for any problems I encountered on iFixit. Now however I have two questions I didn't really find any answers to.
- Last week I replaced two LCD assembly's for the iPhone 4, but both times the LCD wasn't working properly. All around the screen the iPhone's LCD was discolored. I added a picture of this below. At first I assumed the LCD was faulty, but when I contacted my supplier, he said it was probably the LCD cable. When I checked, the small ribbons on both the faulty LCD were indeed folded a little. I added a picture of this as well.
Do you guys have any tips on how to prevent this from happening? My supplier told me "just to be more careful", but I always try to attach the connectors as gently as possible.
- My second question is, sometimes with some LCD's I replace, they distort when you press a little on the screen. Mainly below the screen when you press the black area, so not on the actual LCD itself, it tends to distort. I even had it one time when the home button was pressed, the screen distorted. Does this also have anything to do with the way the screen is installed?
Thanks a lot in advance,
Is this a good question?
