[SOLVED] Display stopped working after phone dropped


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello, I have dropped my Pro1, which caused ugly dent in bottom cover.

Even though screen itself survived scratchless, it stopped working.

So I got into disassembly expecting something visibly broken inside, but I could not find anything. The only damage were scratches caused by me trying to get inside the phone 😀.

I knew the software was still working, because I could hear morning alarm and all kind of notification noises.

Than I noticed the screen replacement on AliExpress had the connector on the side, so this was the final solution:

I just disconnected and reconnected the side connector of the screen and magically it started working again - see the photo in attachment.

It took me several hours so maybe this will help someone else not to repeat my mistakes.

That is the only connector which directly  goes to the display, I think it started to loose maybe at the outer edge which is less visible.

I am glad it survived this drop with minor damages and the screen works well.
Anyway, the easy disassembly process helped a lot, it would not be easily possible on a regular phone...
