    After replacing the digitizer/screen assembly, the phone booted up, the NEW screen responded to touch input. After about 15 minutes, it simply REFUSED to respond to touch input. THEN, after about 90 minutes, it AGAIN responded to touch input for about 90 minutes. NOW it will NOT respond to touch input. I have triple checked the connections, even attempted to put back the old screen, which then the phone didn’t start at all. Could the digitizer be faulty? Could the software just not want to talk to the hardware? Could a master reset (if I can get into the phone) fix it? Please note: this is NOT a password issue. I do not password my phone for this very type of reason.

    Thanks May. However I have purchased, on ebay, a new screen with the digitizer bonded to the glass (without adhesive).

    As you recommend I need adhesive to re-bond the glass touch screen to the LCD display? What type of adhesive do I require and the technique? Can I get the adhesive on ebay? I want to be prepared when I start dismantling the phone. Thanks in advance.

      You can buy the digitizer adhesive on ebay, it’s about $4.00

    Could you please explain, after the last step 14 what do you do? Do you reassemble without the need for additional adhesive to re-attach the touch screen to the LCD display.

    In other words is the remnant of adhesive enough to re-attach the new screen to the LCD display?

    Thanks in advance.

    Use a heat gun or hair dryer on full. Heat it for about 5 mins at 85 and slowly take off the screen with a thin plastic tool round the edges but it’s a hell of a job I would pay the extra £5.

    What if I want to replace the GLASS only?? My digitizer works fine… nobody seems to know how to loosen the glue (as it is only glue holding the glass to the phone) and remove the broken glass ONLY..

        Same here. I bought a screen glass that for some reason does not have digitizer/ flex cable ribbon with it. I could take digitizer/ flex cable ribbon from the old one and put it in the new one. I don’t know how. In short, I’m screwed.
