chrgro - Reply

The procedure is similar. You must use hot air to separate the Touch scree & LCD display from the frame. Of course, the disassembling have a difference.

I just try to change the digitalizer only but it's really hard to remove it without braking the LCD.

I'll recommend to change the glass and the LCD. You will receive assemble AND with new adhesives.

I have done the following, but i have diassembled the touch screen keeping the lcd. Now I assembled again, but the screen remains white when i switch one. I don't know what I can have done wrong. Any help?

Thanks!

Xavi Palacin - Reply

Maybe until disassembling you damaged your LCD display. The only way to find the problem is to try with another working spare part.

What if your LCD is fine and the screen is the only thing that's cracked? Is there a way to only replace the screen?

Rebecca - Reply

They are glued. To separate them you must have a special equipment and a lot of experience.

To be water proof again, you must use adhesive sticker especially for the model, like this for Xperia Z2, Step 13:

Hi,

I managed to replace my broken screen thanks to this guide. Thank you for that!

Unfortunately I´m facing now new problem after mounting phone back together - I can´t get any sound out from the ear speaker and loud speaker. Does anyone have any idea what could gone wrong? I´ve already checked cable connections to the motherboard, but no luck.

Hello,

I did change the whole frame including display and digitizer. Then I reassembled the device, tried the functionality but now the vibro motor is permanently vibrating. Do anybody has a explanation or a solution for this problem?

Thank you

janko04 - Reply

Hello,

I successfully replaced lcd, but now wlan signal is very low and dropping. If I connect or disconnect antenna cable, the reception signal is the same, so maybe I damaged green pcb under vibrate motor? Is there anything else that I should check?

I have a cracked screen only, I ordered a new one off eBay but came with a frame. Now do I have to change all my motherboard, cameras, basically everything into new frame and screen or can I simply take the screen out of new frame purchased and replace the cracked one currently on my phone? Thanks

Hi, similar problem here. It might benefit others to know that some phones are very fussy about the EM permeability of the touch screen; the reason for low signal could be that simple. I am working on a Z and using my idea would allow a screen replacement to be graded without ever opening the box so if substandard could be sent back unopened (most sellers refuse to refund if screen is used at all) the same method can also be verifiably used to evaluate non OEM batteries and compare to the original to see if they are genuine new, genuine used or counterfeit.
