- Replacing the screen on a touch screen phone- easy? (or other fixes for it)
easy on htcs and huwaei ive fixed
replacement screen usually comes with all the tools etc
sometimes its easier to replace the digitizer and the facia around it at the same time (usually not much more expensive) as the digitizer can be glued to the facia and require heating and careful levering to separate
find a good youtube video as a guide and study it closely and be careful you dont snap any connecting ribbons etcPosted 4 years agojoemarshallMember
Youtube video, or instructions, usually off the xda-developers website.
Make sure you have all the tools (usually 1 or 2 small torx screwdrivers and very small cross head, plus plastic pry tools – buy them all off ebay, can usually get a cheap tool set with all of them in), and any stupid sticky tape required.
Follow the instructions slowly and carefully. Be sure that you reconnect everything you disconnected. Have something safe to put the tiny screws in while you work (some people just work on a large white sheet of paper).
If you are methodical, it is pretty easy usually.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve got a Sony phone which has had a tough life in my riding pack and used occasionally when I’m working on site. Lately the touch screen has gone a bit duff and it’s making it a real pain- it’s difficult to open e-mails and I have to rotate the screen to different positions several times whilst writing to get certain letters to work.
A quick google suggests that the digitizer may be duff. A new one is about £16- cheap enough to avoid getting a new phone. I’m wondering if it’s easy to do yourself, if not, how much will it be in a phone shop and if there’s anything else I can try to get it to behave before I try this? I’m not great with electronic stuff.
