Screen replacement: what adhesive, tape and gaskets to use?
I just replaced my Droid Bionic screen/digitizer using the teardown as a guide, and it worked mostly as described, but the teardown does not go as far as separating the screen from the frame.
I found that the screen is attached to the frame using some type of double-stick tape that was partially damaged when I separated them. What is this material and what is a good replacement for it?
There are also gasket like things around each opening in the glass that appear to be custom made for the screen. Any idea on where to get these parts?
Since there were no guides, I started a guide for this repair. I know the photos are not great, but hopefully it will help someone.
OK so I found double sided tape for touch screens.. Not sure what size we need for the bionic but here is where I saw it https://www.gounlock.com/browse.php?grou... There are several different options (5mm,3mm,etc) not sure if this will work but it is a start. This site has mixed reviews so here is another place I found the tape http://www.amazon.com/3M-Adhesive-Digiti... and here http://www.cellulardr.com/double-sided-t... , they are also sold on ebay... Just do a google search.
Also I found this forum thread about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthre...
Questa è una buona domanda?
My fiancé just dropped her bionic and shattered her screen. I am now doing research to see if replacing the screen is something I am capable of. How difficult was the replacment? Did you have to use any of the special tools from the tear down. You mentioned a guide you wrote, but I don't see anything listed.
Thanks for any help you can provide, and sorry I didn't have an answer to your posted question.
Chris, It was easier than I expected. I used the torx screw driver and a couple of the plastic tools. I wrote a guide, but apparently it needs to be approved before it is released. The teardown is probably all you need, but it stops short of separating the glass from the frame - hence the question. I ended up with dust between the glass and LCD, so once I figure out what to do with the adhesive, I'm going to go in again and clean it.
Good guide, great job....:-) Here is the link to your guide. Motorola Droid Bionic Screen with digitizer Replacement
Paul and Steve,
Is the original or replacement adhesive in the square shape like pictured http://www.cellulardr.com/verizon-droid-... or is it along the border of the frame in strips? I am trying to picture what the tape looks like. I don't plan on opening it up until my parts get here. I already purchased a roll of the 2mm tape on ebay, but I would be willing to buy the replacement adhesive if it is per-fitted or a square shape (different then using roll of the double sided 2mm.
After saving the gasket, do you feel comfortable reusing it without buying the replacement gasket? What did you use to separate the glass from the front housing?
Can you post your guide? I will be doing this repair tomorrow.
Also, would double sided cellophane tape work? You can buy it at office supply stores. Is it thick enough?
