If you mean that your Samsung s2653w touch screen is not touch sensitive anymore, you need to clean your screen surface on a regular basis with a soft glass cleaner to remove dirt and finger 'oil' residues. Using a very light mist of eyewear/glass cleaner will help remove dirt and oil.
These tips are for those of you who have decided to take on the task of replacing your cracked screen on your iPhone 3g or 3gs.
On various videos and sites that explain how to replace the screen and digitizer (the part that recognizes touch) they tend to go a little too fast and skip a few minor details. Here are just a few that may help when taking on this task.
1) When ordering your parts make sure you order the glass screen + digitizer. Some sellers offer the glass by itself but it is just a major headache to separate the two and not worth the few bucks you save.
2) Make sure to be in well lit work space. The brighter the better (you might consider buying one of those magnifying lenses on a stand with a light on it). Get yourself one of those magnetic trays. If you lose one of those tiny screws then you are "screwed" yourself.
3) Save yourself some headache and a new bezel by using a suction cup to lift up the glass screen after removing the sim card holder (I used a paper clip for this) and the 2 screws at the bottom of the phone. Attach the suction cup right above the home button and lift carefully. There are 3 ribbon cables attached inside near the top of the phone.
4) Use some tweezers to handle some of those ribbon cables. It can get frustrating trying to use your fingers to handle those small ribbons in such a tight enclosure. Pay attention to the videos or guides you are using to find out which of ribbon cables connectors you have to flip a tiny latch up to get the cable out and which ones you can just pull out.
5) Keep all protective plastic stickies on the new parts until you are absolutely certain you are ready to install them. Any oils from your skin or dust on either the lcd or the inside of the new screen can greatly diminish the quality of your video and it will always seem like your screen is dirty.
6) I learned this the hard way. In those videos and instructions you find, they use a hair dryer to heat up the glue holding the old screen on the frame. It is much faster to use a heat gun BUT BE CAREFUL....if you heat the glass too much, the HOME button is plastic and WILL WARP. To avoid any headaches just go ahead and order the glass + digitizer assembly as well as the HOME button and ribbon cable assembly.
7) There are a number of tools that you can get much cheaper on your own and probably have laying around the house that can make the job much easier. Some may be a guitar pick, exacto knife set (the one with the various blades), some Deox-it (spell check) to clean metal contacts, some Q tips, rubbing alcohol, glass cleaner, and I also found some nice hard plastic tools, which I believe are called "spudgers" on Stanley Tools website. They basically help you hold cables back and are good for probing and wedging some of the parts open.
I hope these tips help someone that is up to doing this task. It was fun to do and also saved me some cash. Plus you have the joy in feeling that you actually fixed something! Please feel free to share this posting.
To clean the dirt and rust on your lcd screen is so easy to do.
Here are the Tools to be use,any improvise tool can do.
* you can use small,precision flat screw driver the same as a swiss knife or any. * a clean clothe * scotch tape * a T6 precision screw driver or any tool that can remove the screw,even a sharp knife or swiss knife can do.
Here is the procedure on how to disassemble the upper block portion.
1. remove the battery first before dismantling the upper block portion to avoid electro-static components on your mobile, might result to a short circuit due to the used of metal tools that contacts some parts of it.
2. now at the back portion of the upper block, you can see a margin located at the bottom part centered,lift up the back cover using the flat screw driver all through the sides, some area is to hard to release because there are some hidden clips inserted.
3. upon removal of the back cover of the upper block, you can see a flex connection on the left side bottom,gently pill it up or pull the plastic to remove from the board connector.be care of that flex connector cause it is just only may from a thin,plastic parts and easy to be teared.
4. Now you can also see 4 screw, release the screw using a T6 presision screw driver then place it to a safe area, might be lose due to its small size parts.
5. carefully lift up the entire module (the board with lcd) then place it on a safe area cause the lcd might be broken when dropped off.
6. using a clean clothe, wipe the glass type cover of the housing which dust and dirt is located.as well as the lcd.
7. to remove some marks or fingerprint marks on the glass cover or lcd, use a scotch tape then place it all over the panel of lcd and glass cover by pulling up and down.
8. now assembly it and be guide and look forward for the pattern on how you dismatle all parts and position.
Take a look at some scene here on this video (just be guided on the particular portions)
Hoping this procedure is clear enough for you.. Thank you for visiting fixya...
Is just the glass broken? The LCD screen underneath the glass also could be broken. But if it is just the glass in front of that, go on ebay and search for the inside glass lens. Also, you can find directions to change anything at all just search it on google.
ya, be careful. i read online use a razor blade, jewelers screwdriver, etc to pry up on it, then take a piece of paper and work it back and forth till the screen is completely removed.
remove any bits of glass, then carefully clean off the old adheasive with a cloth or your finger. this is just what i read online. i am going to try this myself when i get the new glass screen in.
