Hi,

I've bought a new screen + digitizer and replaced it with my broken screen. At first it didn't work...but after updating my N5 device with a OTA cable and a mouse i worked for about a day. But this morning it was unresponsive again.

I've opened it up and checked that every ribbon cable is correctly installed.

The screen turns on fine, but the touch screen is unresponsive.

Any one who has a fix for this or know what to do?

Sounds like a hardware problem to me.

Your previous screen is completely dead ? If the previous screen worked try to put it back and see if it's ok. Maybe you damaged the flex cable or something. The nexus's connectors are really bad...

I've a very similar situation here. Where did you get the screen? Mine seems to work fro a couple minutes then it's unresponsive.

I think the screen is defective. I have replaced the screens on 6 or 7 nexus 5 phones with 3rd party frame/LCD/glass units from Aliexpress and they all continue to work after several months of use.
