did you ever figure this out? I am having a similar problem. This dissent happen the first time I replaced a 6S screen. But thing time, I am getting a lot of ghost touches. makes typing and scrolling impossible. Thanks
I replaced the iPhone 6S screen assembly with the replacement from ifixit (my second 6S I have done) but it seems the digitizer is not calibrated correctly as it is hard to type accurately, and scrolling in apps like YouTube and Facebook is very jittery. Like there is more than one point being touched.
for example, every time I try to type “$” it registers a “7” as well. (“$7”) could there be something shrink with the part? Maybe something wrong with the installation?
can of soup and rubber band did the trick.
Thank you! iPhone 6S, screen cracked to a million pieces. The clear packing tape worked like a charm to secure the broken glass AND to make the “handle” to remove the screen assembly. Using the hair dryer to warm up the edges was necessary. After that, the screen assemble came off easily. The longest, most tedious part, was the removal of the old adhesive and cleaning of the the case with alcohol. Very important step to ensure the new adhesive sticks, retaining the water resistance of the device.
After clicking the screen assembly in place, I discovered the the 2 bottom screws wouldn’t bite into the holes inside. So I had to remove the new screen, to bend the holes back toward the edge. so the screws would reach. Luckily I had not applied pressure or heat yet.
Time consuming? yes, but not very difficult. Just don’t rush it, make sure you have time, and read the whole guide before you even start.
