Are there any problems with the replacement screen? It’s a touch screen, just making sure the functionality of the screen is still intact.

These directions do not give enough information. The screed is glued into the frame. The replacement parts do not come with the circuit board.

Did you successfully replace the screen? I took off the screws, and got to the detaching the wire stage but then discovered as you said “the glue”. Any further insight would be appreciated!

My G7X lost one of the 2 screws holding the screen: do you know where I can find them?
