It says the seller is away until 10 April - perhaps a way to stop people ordering whilst they're away...

I asked them for the reason for this high price.
That was the answer from today:

******************
Hi. Thanks for your message. The price has temporarily been put up to
prevent anyone from buying the item whilst I await new stock. Once I have
new stock, the item will be back on sale at the correct price.

Great guide....good job! :)

I've had mine apart a few times to get the damn dust out from between the digitiser and the LCD display. Micro dust comes in through the speaker grill.

Does anyone know where I might get something to enforce the seal betwen the digitiser and the LCD?
It's very thin foam, in fact it's far too thin and needs fattening up a bit.

Hello
I'm having the exact same problem and I will be opening mine soon. I'll use a similar foam i have since the time I bought a new shell for my old Nokia 3310. (OHH the oldies... :) :) ) I think you can find Foam like that in almost any kit of fascias for Nokia or something like that.. with some knife or blade (no pun intended) cut a small strip and apply it to the bottom of the lcd it should work...

First thanks for the photos and the tutorials an interesting thread. Agree the best option is a protective case and screen protector.

My daughter broke her SF and the colours were odd for a day or so then the screen stopped working (not lighting up) its an OLED screen. I think the digitiser glass and the OLED screen are both broken. Is this replaceable or not worth the effort cost?

I've been in the same the boat as you, my Screen (OLED) and my Digitiser broke. I ended up giving the sob story to Orange Customer Services and they sent me a refurb (couldn't tell the difference) Trust me, if Orange Won't do anything about it go to repairmob.com And it'll cost you £17 for shipping and handling costs

Hope this helped :)

Will anyone be kind enough to find me an ebay link (or an other source) to a correct screw driver for the job?

I've gathered that a pozidrive (or phillips) driver can be used but i cant for the life of me be sure im ordering the right size - this 'gauge' scale has my mind spinning :)


Will this do? Ebay - 00 Phillips Screwdrivers Magnetic

Why don't you just buy a mini screwdriver set? You can get them for about £3 on ebay, and you'll always have them around if you need to take something else apart

The best cure is prevention
i have just purchased a silicon case and a screen protector (dealextreme)
I have to buy a usb cable anyway

blade is new new (4 days) must be protected :)

not so expensive 4 pounds the 3 items (free shipping)



Prevention is not a cure, any more than cure is prevention. A cure is something which remedies something which already occurred, and prevention is preventing it from occurring in the first place.

Think about it...
