Why is touch no longer functional on a recently repaired phone?
Hey iFixit community,
Recently, I fixed my mom's water damaged phone, which is now working perfectly, all except the rear camera. I noticed there was still a little gunk on the camera and digitizer connecter, so I went ahead and cleaned it with some isopropyl alcohol and scraped a bit of the gunk out with the small angled iFixit tweezers. Unfortunately, I think I may have damaged something on the connector, as touch is no longer functional.
What do you think the problem is? Is it an easy fix? If it requires microsoldering, I have been waiting for an excuse to buy some new equipment, but if there is an easier fix, I would love to know.
Thanks for any help,
I think I may have found the problem, but I don't know where I would get the parts or how to fix it. If you look very closely beneath the digitizer connector in one of the exposed areas, it appears as though two spall resistors/capacitors (too small for me to tell!) got scraped off. If anyone knows a cheap way to fix this, that would be great! Unfortunately, I cannot buy a set of hot tweezers, as I do not have that kind of money (after all, I am a high school student). Also, if anyone is experienced in microsoldering, that would be awesome for your help!
