Does anyone know how to replace the digitizer only?

I checked youtube how to replace the lcd + digitizer front panel set but I cant find anything on just removing the digitizer from the lcd.

I checked aliexpress and found
"Touch Screen Glass lens Digitizer Panel Replacement For Sony Togari Xperia Z Ultra C6802 XL39h Original free shipping"
for $90.

Do I need the
"5X Digitizer Touch Panel Adhesive Sticker Rubberized For Sony Ericsson Xperia Z Ultra XL39H C6802,Togari,Xperia L4,Xperia ZU"
on aliexpress to make the digitizer stick to the lcd?

Or should I just fork out $150 for the lcd and digitizer set for an easier way?

But I would prefer just doing the digitizer way cause its more cheaper.


Any input would be great guys. Thank you.

AFAIK is almost impossible to remove it as they were bonded with good adhesive....
Some professional equipment are available to remove them but it cost quite a bit to do so...

Is it the same as the "Z" ?

I saw this youtube video " watch?v=1TFFHFHUJjc " and I feel like I could do it. Search "Sony Xperia Z Separate Touch Screen (Digitizer Glass) Scotle PR-1000 "

Clamps, Heat gun, UV LOCA glue, and Molybdenum wire. I think I could pull it off.

I'm fine without the water proof. I'm just going to fix it and pass it to my nephew.

I fixed it already. BUT! I dont know if the digitizer is defective or I messed up the connections when I took the old one off and the new one on or maybe it some how bent or the gule is somehow uneven and it is making the touches off point.

i.e.

I turn on show visable pointer upon touch in developer options.

When I touch the top right it clicks on the bottom left. vice versa.
When I drag down it drags right. vice versa.


Or maybe I need to calibrate the touch screen? I actually trying to search it now how to do it.

Any suggestions guy on any of this?
Please help.

How did you do it? only heat gun?
My Z cracked long time ago..and now my xperia L too So I guess I could try to repair my xperia Z, but I don't want to pay for a whole LCD.
Only heat gun and wire worked?
Besides can you remove the digitizer and LCD and then remove the digitizer? Or it has to be when still glued/connected to the phone?
