The 2013 IFA has witnessed the phablet - Galaxy Note 3 carrying an impressive Super AMOLED HD display, which is composed of the front glass lens, capacitive touch screen and LCD screen. To make the display thinner and lighter, Galaxy Note 3’s LCD screen and touch screen digitizer are hermetically fused together, attached the front glass lens with optical adhesive. Therefore, the Note 3 digitizer touchscreen with LCD screen plus the glass screen is integrated into the AMOLED screen as a whole part which is called Samsung Galaxy Note 3 LCD screen and digitizer assembly.

    I replaced the LCD Display Touch Screen Digitizer +Frame For Samsung Galaxy Note 3 N9005.
    Would you know why? The screen just appears ‘Samsung galaxy note 3’ The text is turned on, then off, then on, then off, and so on.

      Hi Victro, try to reconnect the screen flex cable to see whether this can fix the issue? If not, insert the old screen to see whether this issue appears?If this issue still happens on the old screen, it is maybe the motherboard issue, if not, the new screen may be a defective product and you can get an exchange from where you buy it. May this can help you.

    i want to know if Note 3 Screen got puple color how to fix it ??

    I am wondering if there could be any other factors that could result in a dysfunctional display (black display with no touch response). I replaced the complete LCD screen/digitizer assembly, but I only get a black display. The phone powers on, the LCD light comes on and there is vibration in the power button. Before I assume it is a faulty display, I just wanted to rule out any other possibilities (i.e. connectors, etc.). Can you offer any suggestions?

    Have a note 3 with broken glass, is it possible to replace only a glass without oled replacement as I heard that that part needs to be replaced as the glass is very thin?
    all options on phone work except the broken glass
    thank you

      Hi DJ, it takes a hard work to remove the broken glass and replace it with a new one, we don’t recommend individual users to try, you can watch below tutorial video for reference:

    I recently changed my glass and had only one very small burn spot to the left side of the screen (about the size of my pinky nail). I was very happy that this was the only problem, but over night the spot has gotten bigger and has a yellow tint to a 1 inch diameter. Can this be fixed? Will it keep getting larger or can I stop it?

    “Galaxy Note 3’s LCD screen and…”

    Not “LCD”, OLED 🙂 .

    So far (with LCD) glass and touch is usually one.

    Is it possible to bond the replacement glass all over with the display?
    Are there any disadvantages or “effects” after replacing the glass without full surface gluing?

    Are there replacement glass with a glue?
    Or is it possible to buy the optical adhesive?

    How does the professional repair?
    A special temperature of the whole display?
    I have an infrared thermometer.
    I may be slow and monitored heat the broken glass with a hairdryer.
    Or a hot air soldering iron.

    Hi, I have one with just the cracked glass and it works still but I have seen just how hard it is to replace the glass, where would I go to buy the whole front screen assembly and just install it myself?
