Thread: iphone 2g broken screen fix
09-16-2009, 10:28 AM #1iphone 2g broken screen fix
hi, i am new here(as u can see)
i have an iphone with a broken screen
i bought from ebay new: lcd digitizer and the glass screen.
now i got everything and put it together and the digitizer not working good, some time works sometimes stop working, then working again after i waking it up again (on/off button then home button)
i didn't glue anything, the glass is holding by the OEM glue in the corners.
so the Q are:
is the digitizer is defective or it should be install in specific way?
how can i clean the lcd and the digitizer they have my fingerprint?
should i buy the all screen unit and forget about it?
i wanted it sprite in case i will brake it again and wont need to buy all the unit again.

I always buy the lcg and dig together helps save time and always seems to work for me. It could also be one of the ribbons is ripped or not plugged in with a good connection

i dont think that it is the ribbons or connecting issue, sometime it work and then stop working, after sleep mode it's ok again for some time..now it stop working at all.. any way i will replace the digi.
but is there something that i should/shouldn't do in install it?
like not touching it by hand or something like that?
i think i will buy the all unit .
the wired thing about it is that they sell it on ebay as the same price as the all unit with the "mid board".
