Will Hawkins: +samanta jauce Yes, you can replace the LCD only beneath the top screen
toxicthunder69: My mum dropped her lumia 820 today and she just asked me if I can fix it
for her. Gladly I found this video but I'm not too sure what the problem
is. It has no cracks that I can see but the screen is a washed purplely
blueish colour, being darker in the top right corner. I think it might be
the LCD that's broken but I'm not too sure and don't want to buy a new one
if the current one is still fine.
PS. The phone still functions perfectly, is just a different colour.
OfficialProppaGaming: Could I manage this at home or do you think I should i take it to a repair
Matías Sibils: Hey, Will. Great video. I have a question about my 820. I dropped it flat
on its screen and the digitizer snuffed it, so I replaced it. Once I had
assembled the device together again, I turned it on. The LCD works
perfectly and the digitizer looks fantastic, but it doesn't work. The
touchscreen is dead and I can't seem to be able to find the cause of it. Do
you have any ideas of what could be wrong? Thanks!
CrazyFungusGaming: how do i see if the lcd or the digi. broke or if they both broke??
Areyousaying idontknowmyname: Thanks to people like yourself it makes the world of difference when
dealing with unfamiliar things.
scottishgiggirl: Will, can you recommend a seller for the digitiser only in a frame please.
I have had my phone in 2 different repair shops and both have failed to fix
it. It is now in bits in a chinese takeaway tub. I have decided to do it
tony yoh: good job well explained
Lily Cole: My screen is cracked but the image back ground is fine and touch screen
works in all areas except cracked... what do I need to replace? Thanks!!
Yasir Khan: Thanks for the video. I managed to replace my digitizer on my Lumia
820 using this video
Stefan Heesch: Nice Video, very structured and good explainations.
Bo Orton: Thank you for you very useful video. I used it to replace the Digitizer but
now when I switch on the phone, it vibrates and makes the start up sound
however the screen is completely blank. How likely is it that the LCD was
damaged when it was dropped and not an internal component? I'm more than
happy to purchase a new LCD and fit it but would like your recommendation...
Thank you in advance.
Carlos Silva: Wish I has seen this earlier. I cracked the phones screen but the LCD
worked just fine, I could even use the camera function with the outer
buttons. The guy who fixed mine did an awful job, he made me buy both the
LCD and the touchscreen, left the LCD's film on, kept my old working LCD,
and on top of everything the touchscreen doesn't respond at times and when
it does only the upper portion of the touchscreen responds. He claimed it
was because the phone wasn't fully charged and made me pay premium!!
Scott Caffrey: great video very usefull , saved me alot of money !
jennifermay1986: Excellent video! You made me believe fixing my screen was possible and it
was possible! Thanks to people like you we can learn even complicated
things and save a lot of money! Thank you
Peter Gaeng: Fabulous guide on how to sort it out. Wish I had seen this before handing
my phone to a local repair shop in pure desparation. . got new lcd but the
3 nav buttons didn't work.. so back in again...
English Rooster: Thanks for the tutorial, it really walked me trough the process
successfully, keep up the good work my friend!
Dinant Dumoulin: Hi Will,
I dropped my lumia 820 today, everything works except the touchscreen. A
new screen is required to make it work properly again, right?
Thanks in advance
BibaGames: 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...
Samanta Jauce: Good video but i was just wondering... What if the top screen is not broken
but the second screen behind has cracked, is there a way to fix that ?
ScienceIsSimple66: Thanks very much for this video, I followed it step by step and I now have
a working 820 with a new digitizer screen. Got my screen from
which also helped. Great fun removing the screen without damaging the
sticky layer, and the main trick is to press the plastic over the glass on
a nice flat surface . Thanks again!!
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! ^_^
Diego Fonseca: many thanks, you saved my life!
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
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. ?
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
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
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...
Raphael Despouy: Hey Will! Many thanks for your great guide. I've got one problem though. I
can't manage to put the final set of screws back. The screws just turn
freely and loose without getting tighter. I'm using a T5 screwdriver. The
phone is working though so will it matter if I use it without those screws?
victoria thao: I dropped my Nokia lumia and now my screen is all blue. What have I broken?
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!
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
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
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?
Chris Rodriguez: Thanks so much for the great vid. Total lifesaver and everything worked
Sean O'Brien: Hi, i dropped my nokia lumia 820, i made a crack on the screen. The touch
does not respond underneath the thouch but it does over it. Do i have to
change the touch and frame or the LCD ALSO?
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
Tero GF Mero X: 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 ?
Wayne Roberts: Thanks
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 :)
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
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?
Barry Keegan: Thanks for the tutorial fixed my phone and saved 100 euro
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.
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,.
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?
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.
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.
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: Any ideas to why the screen goes blank when I make and recieve a call, also
locks itself permanently so have to take the battery out every now n then,
not as fussed about the random locking but my phones pay as you go so cant
put credit on without the screen. Any help would be appreciated.
