    • Remove USB board. If you replace USB board only, please be careful with the LCD screen very much. Once a defect, the screen will be cracked or broken.

    • Push the button out from slot as the direction of mark. And then release the adhesive and remove button flex.

My note 5 was apparently water damaged so I was told when I bought it, it only works with spen on the bottom of the screen for calls text ect ect.. now does this mean I need to replace the digitizer or is there a fix with root access or future updates?

I changed the lcd screen the touch screen works but now the s pen doesn't work, what should I do? Did I did something wrong? Can it be fixed?

tavo0702 - Reply

I just changed my lcd also and I'm having the same problem. Did you get help or find a solution?

Angel Ortega -

You two most likely either got a part without the s-pen digi on it, or it’s defective, or the cable isn’t seated properly.

I have a Samsung Note 5 N920C, international version and my LCD is broken, Do I need to get a N920C lcd or can i put a LCD of other note 5 models, like N920, or Verizon lcd?


Dionnis Daniel Perez Ureña - Reply

My note 5 N920C was hit by someones hand. Right after that, if i wanna unlock the phone the screen'll flash black and white and then it'll go blank again. The scrreen still responded coz i could still play music, receive calls and switch on the torch light without seeing a thing on the screen. And there was a time the screen was displaying its contents (this only happened when i unlocked the phone in a dark place or covered the sensors at the top of the phone with my fingers or something.

Right now it went back to flashing the screen and then going off and starting up again. Currently its just showing the blue notification icon (which isnt going off at all), i think its stuck in a startup loop or something.

LCD touchscreen wasn't working, phone repair shop said, replace digitizer.

Just heat gun, guitar picks, suction handle, and screwdriver.

Just reattach the LCD connector!!! :D

Save $200+ for complete LCD and digitizer replacement. Can't even get digitizer by itself, has to be with the whole LCD assembly.

How about glu..make a video for assemble to put a glu and which one glu is use

How to put it back.. how to use a glue

Ibrahim Abdul Sani - Reply

Don't use glue Ibrahim Abdul Sani. I fixit will sell you adhesive strips that will be pre cut to fit perfect. You can problem get them cheaper somewhere else but when u buy a product from i fixit you know your getting a high quality one. And when your spending so much for a repair already it would be horrible to have your phone fall apart one day because you decided to buy the cheaper parts.

Jesse King -

Thanks so much for all this information, all my questions were answered. My phone is water damaged with a mostly black screen. I could fix it but it is easier to pay my $175 deductible, Might go look at new. I really like this note 5, any recommendations?
