Digitizer screen gone bad?
Got a good deal on a used Eris, the ebay description said that it was stuck on the boot screen, and that the verizon rep told him that it was because he didn't upgrade to the new os,
so he bought a new phone. I get the phone, flash the new update to it and all goes well.
Well, turns out that it's not the os that was the problem, the digitizer screen isn't responding, at all.
The phone boots up and everything looks like it's working. It gets to the lock screen, and this is where I'm stuck. Since the screen doesn't respond to any touches, I can't unlock it and try anything out. Is there a way to get it to boot to a screen other than the lock screen? I just want to test it out to make sure it's the digitizer and not something else.
So I'm wondering, do the digitizers fail like this often, just stop working? I opened it up and checked all of the connectors, nothing loose. I got such a good deal that getting a new digitizer for it is still an option, I just want to make sure that that's what the problem is.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
