4 Possible answers to this:

1. The digitizer is bad - this is uncommon but not unheard of. Roughly %5 of the screens my shop gets in are bad. Most distributors accept returns on defective parts.

2. The digitizer isn’t plugged in to the board

3. The digitizer port on the motherboard is damaged - this can be tested by trying a known good screen.

4. Software issues. This is most common in iPhones, in my experience. So far as I understand, parts can have hardware identifiers similar to a MAC address. Suddenly changing the hardware can “confuse” the software. You can try a force reset or resetting the phone.

I guess this is different than older phones where the digitizer and lcd were separate and when you cracked it you could just buy a new digitizer and replace it without having to buy the lcd with the digitizer.? am I correct in this fact because I see that you can buy the black or white Screen replacement with the lg logo without having to buy the lcd is the screen replacement just like a glass protector for the digitizer and lcd? Like a built in glass screen protector that you would normally add on to stop scratches and a cracked screen or is the screen replacement the digitizer like say the lg optimus f60 and the lg motion where the outer screen with the lg logo and the black part of the screen were part of the digitizer?

You’ll need a LCD/Digitizer assembly such as The black marks are almost definitely breaks in the LCD screen.

Michael for heaven’s sake add steps for the headphone speaker and difficulty of removing the headphone jack cable. You’re doing people a real disservice by leaving those out.
