black screen
hi guys!
I bought a new lcd screen + digitizer on ebay. Everything worked fine the first 3 months.
After a while the screen colours were wrong (means yellow was red f.e.). so I decided to open the phone again and to have a look if a cable is not sitting right and this might be the cause.

but now, my screen is black. I hear the sound when the phone is booting but I dont see anything.

do you think the screen is again destroyed?

It seems that this is the case.
You could try to reconnect everything, in case some dust caused a bad electrical connection.

Thumbs up SOLVED with 6€ (only glass ) !!!
Tks "devonblue4u" : D

you were the only one with courage like me, and I read your post carefully before you venture into the place of "GLASS ONLY OUTSIDE".

I purchased the glass only by E-Bay about 6 € (arrived in about 10 days)

I wanted to say that with my method you put about 2 hours without disassembling the phone!

get yourself a micro optical screwdriver, something hard and plastic is not very sharp, knife and .... the [B] REMOVE SILICONE [/ B] spray ( 3€ ).

spray the spray along the edge of the glass of the phone until it starts to become unstuck from the edge of the glass and try to separate the edge, taking care to contacts of the lower part.

Once separated the plastic lip (helping with screwdrivers and plastic tool and cutter always being careful to touch the glass) to try to divide the 2 glass with the cutter and the spray (always doing dissolve the glue of the adhesive).

after removing all the broken glass, clean the glue touch the glass with alcohol and then remount the board appoggiateci pasting over the glass again with very little glue (I used bostik) being careful not to smudge the glass.
If you made ​​a mistake of gluing always use the "remove silicone" to remove the bostik (or silicon) clean and put the glue.

: D

Good luck.

Congratz.

@ Umancini & devonblue4u"

I´ve got the same problem. My Glass is broken, but the Screen is working fine. Did I get it right that you did not have to remove any cable or anything exept the Bezel and the Glass? So that it actually would not even be necessary to remove the back-cover? That sounds to easy.

I broke my glass really stupidly by using my teeth to get it out auf its safety bag due to my hands beeing in use for holding a beer. However, my canine tooth hit the glass right in the corner of the home button and seperated into 7 larger pieces and some minor.

So I would like to just replace the glass and the "outer edge" (it has got quiet some dents) but I´m still not sure how you exactly did it and would be pleased if you can give some further assistance.

Cheers, Fred

Edit: Additional question to anybody who did it. Would you recommend to buy Glass and bezel seperately or buy the package where it seems that the glass and the bezel are already bonded? Unfurtunateley I cannot post links, so this is the ebay article number: 280864899347

Who has had the experience of replacing only the glass, without replacing the whole display? Where I can buy the original Gorilla Glass? Is it difficult to change it?

@Umancini

Do you think this article will simplify the process of replacing the glass?

And you really did not need to unmount the phone? So the steps are:

- removing back cover
- spray silicone remover
- remove the edge carefully
- remove the shattered glass
- clean it all up
- add yome glue to the new glass and but it back on
- glue the (new) edge back to the phone

Am I right?

Cheers again
