    Default Iphone screen image inverted
    Hello,

    I tried replacing my iphone's touch screen.
    I thought all was going well, but at the end when I turned my iphone on the image on the screen is inverted like in a mirror, and the touch screen doesn't give any response.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Just get a mirror, about the same size of your screen, tape it perpendicular to your screen, and just look in the mirror when using your phone

    Sorry, I can't understand what you mean by backwards. I can't imagine another disposition of the parts....

    Unplug the screen, flip it over and plug it back in.

    Do I look like I am kidding you?

    take out the screen and examine it and double/triple/quadruple check it and try again.

    Wow man, Im sorry for all the lame responses here.. This is obviously not the right forum for this type of question. Outside of a few individuals, no one here has even seen the internals of the iPhone, lest they be able help with a semi-complex hardware question. Too bad they have to be douchbags about it..

    I would search around for some more 'advanced' iPhone forums. Good luck..

    Wow, 'emorebellion', you're probably about as rebellious as an old sock in a tunnel. Have a word with yourself, dude

    As for the OP, refer to the guide you used to fit the screen, reverse what you did, and follow the instructions again. This time properly

    Maybe he was sleeping and his eyes inverted. That happens to people you know

    I know what the inside of an iPhone looks like! It's all godly and shining with bright light, powered by the genius and love of millions and the celestial bodies above.
