camelCased: I guess, the screen of 820 is really fragile in comparison to 920. I've
heard so many complaints about Lumias 820 having broken screens just
because of dropping them from a little height or for bending in a pocket.
In Amazon.de one company told that they bought 15 Lumias 820 for their
employees and after a few months 10 of them had broken screens. I guess,
that's the price for Nokia not having Gorilla Glass on their Lumia 820.
This is real shame as I almost bought it - no other phone has this
Bibamihai: hello i broke my glass and Touch don`t respond (color display are ok) and i
went to a service and they said at 820 they can`t change the screen and the
touch without changing the display...
KoolKidzOCT: can I just pay the guy @ bestbuy to do this for me?
Alessandro Spisso: Hi Will, I've dropped my 820 and now the screen is broken in the right
corner at the bottom and the three sensitive buttons don't work (back,
search and windows). Do I need to change the digitalizer? Because the
display work fine and the touch as well.
Diego Fonseca: many thanks, you saved my life!
victoria thao: I dropped my Nokia lumia and now my screen is all blue. What have I broken?
Godwin Larry: Thanks Man, for the video...I did change the screen with a new frame
attached to it..But when I switch-on the Nokia Lumia 820 phone again the
LCD shows nothing, meaning its just black( ...yet the external buttons are
still operating as usual ) and it was not so not until I changed the
screen...Please any suggestion on what to do next. Thanks again.
SkipNap11: I'm going to do this but do I need anything else because the whole touch
screen doesn't work and I've only got a tiny crack in it?
Alok Sathaye: Hi There. I dropped my new Lumia 820 and the display won't work now anymore
:( The screen is not broken but the inner screen (if that is what it's
called) shows a crack. I gather you can change either the digitizer or the
screen. What do you suggest would be in my case?
kevin duncan: What is the Torx size of the second set of screws? You almost said it then
stopped. Are they T5 as well?
sof david: Thank you for the video, it was really helpful. I was able to do the same
work with my Nokia phone. Concerning the digitizer to take if off safely,
it is good to heat it little bit more, is going to be more easier to take
it off. Thank you
Michelle Mollohan: Hello there - great video, easy to follow. I replaced the digitiser screen
as you did - the screen is non-responsive - could it be that something
isn't tight enough to make connections or do you think it is the screen? I
took the phone apart again ( minus the screen) and reassembled in case I
missed something - the LCD screen is undamaged - any ideas you have would
Joris Vergauwen: Thanks for the walkthrough. Fixed my wife's phone thanks to you. She had a
small crack in the upper right cornerof her screen. Changed the screen
(bought one with a frame attached) just following your instructions.
Wayne Roberts: Thanks
Rob Carr: Great video. The corner screws on my 820 are T6 (not T9 as reported in the
video). Clearly a few differences in the hardware batches
Ken Rolsen: Thanks for the suggestion about the getting the glass and the frame as one.
That made this a very easy job. Thanks for sharing
Kyle Crompton: Hi Will, this video has been a great help! But the screen im fitting has
come with the frame (thought it would be easier), and ive followed your
guide but it still wont work! =[
everything looks right but i have noticed that at the bottom of the new
digitizer there is a small metal flap extending towards the screen, and on
the old digitizer this has been folded and fitted to a metal section, could
this be whats wrong? its where the touch buttons are located
Heather Hamilton: Many thanks Will.. I had no insurance and over a year left on a phone
contract which left me miserable and told 100 pounds to replace glass. So
with nothing to loose n skint i got the glass for £8.00 ebay and followed
your instructions.. (nearly in need of a forehead sweat band..Pheeew!! a
tad scary for a total novice but necessity being the mother of invention
its.... yippee.. got my phone back. bless ya...
Kristjan Johansen: Hi Will,
Thank you for the video, very helpful.
I've changed my screen, everything went well, but my touch does not work.
The glass was really broken, but the screen didint turned to blue framed or
frozen. And the touch didint work went the glass broked. Although I could
see the backround and for exemple take pictures by pressing the buttons on
the side of the phone.
What do I do?
SkipNap11: I've done it and it works however after a while the touch stops working so
I have to take out the battery and it works again, how can I fix it?
Will Hawkins: How to replace the digitiser on a Nokia Lumia 820
Lovietta Simpkins: Thank you so much. After so much searching and getting overly expensive
quotes from people to fix my phone, I was able to do it myself thanks to
you. You rock man! ^_^
noeline ogle: Hi Will, yes great video. But I still don't know if I need to replace my
LCD. All the colours are still there on the screen, side buttons work fine.
The display looks fine just a badly cracked screen/digitalizer., but is
unresponsive to my touch. ?
Jared Wheeler: Brilliant video; this saved me quite a bit of money in replacing my
Digitizer myself rather than buying a new phone or hiring someone to fix
it. Very well directed in an easily understood manner.
Rennie Azzopardi: Thank you very much Mr Will Hawkins for your video and instructions. It
helped me lots, I fixed my phone. Thank you once again.
Iasonas Konstantinou: I fell down and broke the screen only. the LSD works fine. I bought another
screen and changed it but when i switch on from the waist down not working
and from the waist up he works some help please
jonny allen: hi i followed the steps to replace the screen. turned the phone on and
found only half of the screen works. i then took it apart again and checked
the connections and all where fine and the problem remains.
is there any soloution
Lostboy060: Cheers man, simple instructions changed the screen in under 5mins!
usmcyoshi: Hey Will I have a quick question for you. I ordered a replacement digitizer
and frame as I didn't want to muck about taking off the glass and
reattaching it. When the new digitizer and frame came in the new one had
the little gold(copper?) connection at the bottom of the frame up and
unattached from the plate it should normally be attached to similar to this
(where the red is)
My old screen had this attached and it appears the one in the video did as
well. I don't know how to attach it or if it even should be attached as it
appears all the ones sold online have that bit up like it is? And help
would be appreciated
marron0437: I dropped my 820 and a giant crack appeared right through it. the touch
still works fine but the colours are all messed up. They appear washed out
and were deteriorating with each passing second. I don't know what's
broken- the LCD or the digitizer? Can you tell me what I broke so that I
will buy only the part I require,.
Theguy1796: So yesterday i dropped my lumia 820 and it cracked slightly on the top
right corner now the bottom half of the touch screen does not work, will
this be my solution or is it something else? Help greatly appreciated :)
Tom 'angler' claridge: Hi mate, my dad just replaced my screen today and it worked fine but, when
I lock it I can no longer use youse it it freezes completely any
technicalboy: Hi, great video, very well explained, but camera a bit blurred in places.
But, still clear enough to do the job.
Just changed the digitizer and frame in about 30 minutes, all great. We
bought a genuine Nokia part from www.replacebase.co.uk - 2 days to get
delivery, just before New Year - pretty good. They sold the digitizer
alone, but by the time we'd have bought the tape, and tools, it was only £5
more to get the frame attached and save a load of hassle. Didn't want to
risk a cloned part as they have sensitivity and colour problems reported....
2 points - we found the corner screws to be a different size - T6 instead
of T9, as in the video but Will has said that they can vary.
Also, the lower on-screen buttons work now, but do not light up - anyone
know if there's an easy fix for this? Thanks again... Danny
rokcityboi: Cheers for the vid, Lumia is alive and working again after couple month in
adrian92amador: Great Vid!
i have a lumia 1320 and the glass screen crack! but i have like 3 little
spot like more yellow than the rest of the lcd screen, the lcd would be
damaged too? that worries me a lot, im taking the risk of changing de glass
by myself, any tip would be great!
Ab C: Hi will I have a 820 after changing the screen I notice the phone works
fine apart from when some one calls it says black and I can't turn the
phone off I mean end call but if I touch the top by the sign it comes back
Sore Joshi: Excuse me sir,
I dropped my Lumia 820 many times and finally the screen is broken, I cant
see anything on my phone its total black, for some time after it broke I
could see a green light blink when I pressed the side button but that's
also gone now , one time I played music by randomly touching the screen and
when I get a call I can answer it by randomly touching the screen. So, I
think my touch still works but my display is gone so what do I have to buy
and replace ?
TheMrDanny1: Hi Will, I just wanted to say thanks for this great guide, I found it very
helpful and very easy to follow, had the phone fixed in no time, I am also
thinking of enrolling on the course :)
slomba8: what 3m tape do you use?
Ciber Pc's en red: I get the second replacement touch. and does not work. I still think it may
be because the screws not tight, it may have something to do? I also read
that it may be because it does not work with amber. please help.
Harold Musspole: Very professional very helpful video. My 820 is up and running again !!
Ciber Pc's en red: Thanks for the video. yesterday I get the replacement touch, when I turned
on the touch did not answer me. one of my mistakes was touching the touch
on the inside, and the other is not strong tighten the screws, they went
back to open and clean the touch when you turn the top and bottom of the
touch works, but not the middle, I thought I could be in and tighten the
screws again and I broke two of the 3 middle screws. is why it does not
work me? or is it because the replacement was broken?
Victor Parnaso: Thanks for your quick and complete answer ! :)
Will Hawkins: It's a pleasure. Let me know how you get on.
MLGM9491: In my humble opinion, everything's worth having a look at. Thank you once
Will Hawkins: Hi Keith, When you have taken the battery and restarted, can you use the
touch screen normally? I have had one Lumia 820 repair which sounds similar
to the problem you seem to be having here. It is likely to be one of two
things. 1. It could be a faulty new screen (in which case, get it exchanged
by your supplier). 2. It could be some damage to your motherboard after a
drop, which is more difficult to repair, if at all possible. I hope that
GnobKnut: G'Day Will - very sweet mate. Saved me a couple of hundred $ getting the
fix done retail. Found a replacement screen + frame which saves all the
fiddling round with the sticky tape and such. Much appreciated.
Sergiu Longodor: I have contacted, the supplier and they will change my screen, for free. I
ve just sent the hole phone to them and they will do it for me, for free...
very nice move, of them. Thx for your advice.
DoT47: Thanks for the answer. Any specific connection you have in mind? As far as
I could see the camera was sitting directly on the motherboard and I didn't
disconnect it. Do you think it could have disconnected by itself or are
there other connectors coming into play?
Will Hawkins: Glad you found it useful.
