How to Replace the iPhone 3G Digitizer
A digitizer is a device used to translate standard analog information into computer-readable digital data. On the iPhone 3G the digitizer is connected to the glass touch screen and takes the information that is entered into the phone and converts it into something that the iPhone can understand. If you are experiencing trouble with the performance of your iPhone and want to replace the digitizer, you can do it yourself with a little bit of patience and a lot of care
- Things You'll Need: SIM removal tool, Jeweler's screwdriver, Suction cup, Heat gun, Tweezers, iPhone digitizer adhesive strips, 3G glass and digitizer
- Turn off the iPhone and remove the SIM card from the top of your iPhone with the SIM removal tool that came with your phone. Use a jeweler's screwdriver to remove the two tiny screws on the bottom of the phone
- Place a suction cup on top of the glass on the front of the iPhone and lift it up. Grasp the sides of the phone in order to allow the glass to lift up from the phone frame
- Swivel the glass and the screen upward to expose the three wires connecting them to the rest of the phone along the top edge. Pull out the wires labeled 1 and 2 to disconnect them
- Remove the wire labeled 3 by pushing the small latch holding it in place until the wire lifts away from the circuit board of the iPhone. Pull the glass and the screen away from the rest of the phone
- Pull the sides of the front piece away from the LCD screen and lift the screen out of the glass front. You will have to wiggle the screen a little to get it out of the clips holding it down
- Turn the front of the phone over so the Home button is facing up and the digitizer is on the underside and apply heat from the heat gun for 3 minutes all around the black edges. Avoid letting the heat get onto the Home button to prevent damaging it
- Pull the glass and the digitizer away from the plastic frame piece until they are completely separated. You can hold the frame with a towel as you remove the glass, as the pieces will be very warm from the heat gun
- Use your finger and tweezers to pull away any remaining glue or sticker adhesives that were left behind when you removed the glass and the digitizer
- Lay the new iPhone digitizer adhesive strips in place on the front of the plastic frame by peeling off the protective backing. You will see the cut-out shape of the strips and know which one goes on which end of the frame
- Smooth out the strips with tweezers to make sure there are no pockets of air and that the strips are placed straight on the frame
- Peel off the clear protective film along the top and bottom edges of the new glass on the front side. You should leave the rest of the film pieces in places to prevent fingerprints from getting on the glass
- Take off the remaining protective films from the adhesive strips using the tweezers to expose the sticky upper side
- Put the glass down on top of the frame, lining up the hole in the glass with the Home button. The digitizer should go through the frame and be on the underside while the glass rests on top of the frame touching the adhesive strips
- Take off the remaining film pieces from the new glass and replace the LCD screen onto the back of the plastic frame, behind the new glass
- Connect the wires from the screen back onto the phone in the reverse order that you removed them. Make sure the clip for wire 3 latches onto the phone, and then push in wires 2 and 1
- Press the plastic frame and the glass back down into the phone and replace the screws on the bottom. Check that the screen is firmly pressed down before the inserting the screws
- Put the SIM card back into the phone and restart the iPhone
Tips & Warnings:
- Aways buy the glass and the magnetizer together as they are very difficult to separate and work with individually
- Opening your iPhone may void your warranty if you are still covered by one
What is a Touch Screen Digitizer?
A touch screen digitizer is the part of a personal digital assistant (PDA), phone or monitor that allows you to touch the screen with a stylus or your finger and input data directly. You can touch icons to activate them, or you can even use handwriting recognition to input text on some touch screens. Others use virtual keyboards to input data. Using a stylus, which has a smaller and more precise tip than a finger, you are activating a much smaller area of the digitizer. This, in essence, gives you a finer line and the perception of more writing space.
- Input: The digitizer is a thin, clear film over your device's display that tells the device exactly where you have touched the screen. It is made of two layers of film that contain conductive points in them. They are held slightly apart by a thin, non-conductive mesh. When you press against the film, it completes a circuit where you touch and tells the device those coordinates
- Smartphones: The digitizer is the main or only input device for some of today's smartphones. Apple's iPhone and the Palm Pre are good examples of the use of a digitizer. Their highly graphic operating systems use various gestures or patterns of touch to mean different things. A touch and swipe to the side can turn a page or change screens while a tap can activate a function
- PDAs: Like smartphones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) sometimes include a keypad, but more often rely heavily or completely on the touch screen digitizer for input. Windows Mobile and Palm devices both have methods of entering text into the device using the digitizer
- Text Entry by Gestures: The original Palm text entry system called Graffiti used gestures to decide what letters you were using and you had to learn to print the letters a certain way. A stroke down and a tap at the top created a lower-case 'i' on the screen. The Windows version uses a more sophisticated recognition system to find patterns that look like letters
- Point-of-Sale (POS) Applications: Point-of-sale (POS) applications are another broad area where touch screen digitizers are used. In this use, they are applied to a full-sized computer monitor to create a touch screen. The two films are larger and often not as precise as their smaller cousins on phones and PDAs. They are acting basically as the mouse in the POS application, so the clerk can press virtual buttons. The precision involved in handwriting recognition is not required in this application
How to Clean Touch Screen:
- Power off the touch-screen device
- Use distilled water or non-ammonia-based glass cleaner to dampen a soft, lint-free cloth
- Do not use a paper towel or bath towel which can scratch the touch screen
- Do not apply liquid directly to the touch screen--always apply it to the cloth. Make sure the cloth is damp but not wet
- Wipe the touch screen gently with the damp cloth to remove dust and oils
- Use a dry lint-free cloth to remove excess moisture from the screen if necessary
- It is now safe to power on the device
