Has anyone replaced the digitizer (front glass) themselves? I see the kit on ebay for $10 and videos on how to do. It doesn't look very complex.
Advice or things to look out for would be helpful.
I was surprised to see that the replacement note part is $290 just for digitizer and sometimes LCD. I could get a new phone at that cost plus a lot of these phones that I have seen around have cracked screens. How do you guys afford to replace broken screens at such costs.
I recently dropped my TF300 (in the process of jerry-rigging a carrying case for it, might I add) and it happened to shatter the glass and tear some of the ribbon for the digitizer, rendering it completely useless. The LCD beneath is fine, in fact I have already separated the LCD from the digitizer itself.
I have the Note 10.1 with the deep grey digitizer. Anywho, it went SPLAT and is now shattered. The LCD is fine, just need the glass. Anyone know where I can get the deep grey digitizer replacement? Global Direct already scammed me.
So I had a cracked screen on my s3 but the digitizer still worked. Bought one of the glass replacements and started plugging away with the picks and a hair dryer. Got about halfway done with the screen when my stupid cat decided to grab the towel I was working on and knock the phone to the ground. A few pieces removed later I noticed a crack in the center of the led/digitizer.
Looking for a replacement for my Evo 3d, yet another phone I have owned where the screen has cracked. I have ordered the parts to replace the Digitizer and LCD as there is currently a fairly high resale value for this phone (compared to how much I paid for it)
So I have been looking for a phone that is a step up hardware wise and a longer life on the battery.
I dropped my VZW Galaxy S4 (stock, unrooted, running 4.2.2), cracking the screen and damaging the digitizer. I ordered a replacement digitizer/screen and installed it and everything went fine. However I'm now dealing with a number of odd issues with my phone that were not there before installing the new parts a week ago:
4G doesn't work.
