You have to reattach the flash lens wires directly to the underside of the OLED screen, not the ‘back cover.’ It sticks directly to the OLED screen. That’s where it was on the old screen. Was this wrong?
Exactly what I was afraid of happened. I installed the new screen and it’s not working. I just get a black screen. After plugging into a charger for several minutes, holding down the power button and hearing vibrations, I determine that the phone must be on. But screen is just black. No damage was done to this screen. It was brand new and I put it in. But something somewhere went wrong. How could I know what that was going to be? Is something not plugged in right? Did it get “fried” like someone said in another post?
Unless there’s an easy fix for what’s going on that I can try, this entire attempt to fix has been a complete disaster.
I do not have time to wait for another screen, nor do I want to pay for another screen that could just as easily not work either after I try to put it in.
This was a complete disaster. I was so careful, took tons of time with it. But near the bottom, as many have stated, the screen cracked a hairline crack and separated from the glass. This is more than difficult, because it requires some kind of finesse in some specific way that you can’t explain on this site or even a video. Following instructions exactly and being beyond careful does not give one the knowledge or finesse to do this repair successfully. I ordered a new screen and I hope that the battery I put in works. There’s no way to know until I get the new screen, and then hope that there isn’t something else wrong that happened in some specific way with the connectors or cables or electrical contacts in there. Disaster. And the tools are subpar too. Broke the smudger tip trying to pry off the bracket. Bent the tweezers too.
