Hi fellow iphone guru's,
Please read carefully as I will explain in details what I have already done.
I have an iPhone 3G 16GB in which the digitizer won't work
I repair iPhones (or at least try to LOL) so this is what I did, with no success.
1) Changed the whole back housing, audio jack, volume / mute switch
2) Changed the screen / digitizer
As you can see I do have some skills and this is not my first repair.
So I assembled everything properly and the digitizer still doesn't work.
Next, i tried to reset / restore but that didn't help. The screen still doesn't respond to touch.
Now I have taken a digitizer that works ( from my personal iPhone) plugged it in and it doesn't work.
Re-swapped it on my iPhone and it worked again. So i'm suspecting something going on with the logic board, either cable 1 or 2. I've looked at the connectors but everything seems fine.
Any Ideas on what to look for ?
THIS PHONE WAS WATER DAMAGED BUT IT WORKS FINE, I HAD THE SCREEN WORKING BEFORE.
Some kind of connection could be loose or a short somewhere.
Something is wrong with the board but I can't locate it. Anyone ? Pictures can help too ...
I appreciate you guys helping out...
P.S: Trying to press HOME / POWER will not help me in this case. I have tried it.
