1 Can one remove display tape, 2 remove tape residu, 3 clean display

Hi all,

Three questions in one:

I need some advice. I’m at step 28 of this screen replacement guide where they say “Remove any tape obscuring the LCD screws”. Instead of just peeling back a small part, I wrongly removed the entire tape, all around the display (not the digitizer) 😬 I don’t know what got into me, but after spending several hours on removing the broken digitizer I got a little enthusiastic by the ease of this removal.

So my question is: Should I replace the tape? And if so with what? And why was it there anyway?

Another question: there’s a thick layer of the residue from the old digitizer tape on the frame. How to best remove it? Using IPA and a cotton swab takes ages and forces some glue down in the frame. But maybe it’s the only way?

Third question: how to best clean the display? There’s some sticky debris on it. My replacement digitizer will go over it so I have only one chance to clean it well.

Hi there @jannn999 ,

I'd be happy to help you with your questions regarding your screen replacement. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Tape Replacement: It's generally recommended to replace the tape that was removed during the screen replacement process. The tape serves as a protective barrier and helps secure the LCD screws in place. You can use double-sided adhesive tape or specialized adhesive tape designed for screen replacements. This will ensure proper alignment and stability of the display.
  2. Residue Removal: If using isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and a cotton swab is taking too long or pushing glue into the frame, you can try using a plastic card or a non-abrasive plastic tool to gently scrape off the residue. Be cautious not to apply excessive force to avoid damaging the frame or the underlying components. Another option is to use a mild adhesive remover or a specialized cleaning solution for electronics. Remember to apply the solution to a cloth or cotton swab rather than directly on the display to prevent any potential damage.
  3. Display Cleaning: To clean the display effectively, you can start by using a microfiber cloth or lens cleaning cloth to remove any loose debris or dust particles. For sticky debris, slightly dampen the cloth with distilled water or use a small amount of specialized screen cleaning solution. Gently wipe the display surface in a circular motion. Avoid using excessive moisture or spraying directly onto the screen to prevent any liquid from seeping into the device. Make sure to let the display dry completely before proceeding with the digitizer replacement.

Remember to handle all components with care and take necessary precautions to avoid static discharge or damage to the delicate parts during the process. Good luck with your screen replacement!

Thank you so much, Ramses.

Ad 2, I have an iOpener to soften the glue residue, that will help with the card method I think. Already tried it cold. There’s lot of it because I didn’t dare to heat the screen properly. When performing the old digitizer removal, I used quite some force with spudgers and stuff. I know better now. Protective eye gear was a life saver with my crude methods.

Thanks again for all your answers

1 don't worry about the tape. The screws won't come loose without it.

2 I use a metal scraper or a craft knife blade with a square end to gently scrape away the old adhesive. Works well and quick. Then a quick scrub with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud.

3 if you mean sticky on the lcd then a microfibre cloth with a touch of isopropyl alcohol and gently work on the adhesive.

Good luck.
