Matters Needing Attention
Before stripping your phone down, power off it till the screen goes out to avoid short circuit and prevent the electronic parts and components from being damaged.
With the LCD Display and Digitizer Touch screen assembly with frame open,we need assure of that the angle between screen and body should be less than 90 degree to protect the flex cable.
Please note that all the screws have unique positions. It would be better to set these screws aside in the same pattern as they are situated on the bracket. Or, it will be better if you have a Magnetic Project Mat, all the screws will be right where you undo them.
Here are some possible consequences if you mix up the screws.
A. Region below the ear speaker turns yellow
B. Penetrate the LCD screen/digitizer
C. Damage the motherboard
Don’t apply too much pressure to unglue the home button assembly (home button, home flex cable and home button aperture), for there is a lay of dust-proof tape around home button. You should be more patient.
Gently separate the LCD flex cable from the body, for it is glued on the front glass lens.
Flex cables are always fragile therefore please be careful when reconnect it to the logic board. Hold the bottom part of the flex cable ribbon with one hand, and then slightly bend the flex with the other hand. Bear it in mind that we keep holding the flex cable in the course of reconnecting.
To solve these problems, you need to reconnect the flex cables. For static line, it will take 30 minutes to completely clear the static electricity on the screen after reconnected, since it is capacitive touch screen.
A slight voice/noise shows the LCD display screen flex cable and motherboard connected properly. Rough operation or mishandling may result in series problems such as touch screen and home button no response, static line, digitizer defect, screen shinning etc.
Make sure the angle between the screen and body is less than 45 degree during the screen test.
Be sure of that there are no dust and dots on the camera lens before installing the front facing camera.
In the end, be sure the LCD display screen assembly is properly aligned with the top edge.
