Ran out of room….
So, #1, I couldn’t find a ‘new’ adhesive for the back…(by itself)…I would recommend it, if you can find it…maybe even a new back glass
I’m hoping that the fingerprint reader disc coming off of the power button is why it’s no longer working? Any others experience this? I checked the contacts…I think I put it back/centered correctly.
I’m considering dropping the $30 for a new back assembly…..
I’m REALLY going to miss my fingerprint reader, for logging in to bank accounts etc….
Thanks in advance,
So, I’ve done a few iphone battery replacements…I understand patience/heating…following directions.
Well, of course, the back glass broke (2X) during removal. I’m using a card, as instructed. so I finally work the back off, and the power button/fingerprint gizmo separated from the back/stayed attached to the little pad where it fits on the frame. I’m terrified to move it, as I don’t know exactly where it’s got to line up on the back glass….but I can’t get the phone apart w/out removing it.
THEN I notice that somehow that I had cut the ribbon cable that goes to the coil for wireless charging/google pay/file share. WTH? DON’T go in too deep THERE with the card…I trimmed the place where it tore, to make sure the thin foil wasn’t shorted together, and put a piece of thin plastic as an insulator under it.
So, I get it back together as well as I can, but 2/3 of the adhesive was so messed up, (balled up) I had to pick it off, otherwise the back won’t seat against the frame. The finger print reader doesn’t work now.
