[Q] Issues after replacing glass: Black out and self typing during calls
Hello all, and XDA developers,
I'm a short time lurker, and flasher, but that's besides the point. I've started my own business repairing phones and I've gotten very good at it, I have extremely fair prices, and this is putting me through college.
I've ran into an issue and I can't figure it out. I try to stay up to date on phones since my job requires that I work on phones, and although I couldn't find all the information about the hardware under the screen of the SGS4 i decided to replace a broken glass screen any way..... well now I have a dissatisfied customer on my hands and i'm doing everything in my power to rectify the situation.
What I did:
I used a heat gun to lightly heat the screen of my customers broken phone, like I have done many times before with other models of phones. I scraped off the old glass, cleaned the glue out thoroughly with alcohol and a small piece of microfiber (like for cleaning screens and glasses). I laid down 3m tape (possibly in the wrong place). Put the new glass on, and PRESTO done.......
A beautiful new screen, but the wake up motion doesn't work any more (where you swipe your hand across the screen w/o actually touching it), and the screen automatically blacks out once a call is placed. This may be because of where i placed the tape, but a new issue has reared it's ugly head...... It's typing now... by itself.... during calls and at other times. She wanted a different color for the screen and i told her that I will replace the screen and fix the issues all in one motion, but I'm not sure what is making it type on its own. Does anyone have any clue as to what could be causing this issue? I have until the afternoon of 9/25 Central time (UTC-06:00)
Thank you to everyone for existing, this forum, even if it doesn't resolve this issue, is simply a work of art by mad geniuses from all over the planet. I love everyone of you.
