iPhone 3GS (Touchscreen/Glass) $59.95; (LCD/Display) : $59.95
Some screens have separate touchscreen glass and LCD components, therefore if the touchscreen does not respond and the image still displays properly, you only need to replace the touchscreen glass. If there is no display or a distorted display on your screen, the LCD screen needs to be replaced.
Unless you are an expert, trying to replace the digitizer/touchscreen yourself is hazardous to your happiness. These screens are very fragile and expensive. The glass or the digitizer is fused to the display/LCD, and the display is tightly fitted to the 3GSís frame. This screen replacement is best left to experienced technicians.
Unfortunately, we have had a number of DIY-enthusiasts, victims of the many online videos, straggling into our store clutching their newly purchased screens and their 3GSs looking for help.
Our experts can fix your iPhone 3GS screen in 1 hour.
Cracked or broken touchscreens/LCDs are the most common problems with the iPhone 3GS. Many people mistakenly believe that the Gorilla Glass is unbreakable, which is untrue. Gorilla Glass is a great improvement for smartphones, making it less easy for the digitizer or screen to get scratched, but it is still easy for the display to crack or break.
Often the digitizer or the LCD may not be visibly broken, but does fail to work due to repeated knocks, dings and drops. So, while the display has no visible crack, it might be white or unresponsive to the touch. After suffering multiple knocks and drops over time, just the slightest impact may render the screen inoperable. This is a perplexing but common experience for many users who canít understand why a very slight impact resulted in the failure of their screen.
Screens can also bleed the liquid that is the LCD glass. This can occur weeks or months after the first serious impact/knock suffered by the screen. This impact often results in hair-line cracks that are typically invisible to the naked eye. Over time, however, repeated knocks can widen and deepen the cracks until the cracks are large enough to seep out the liquid.
Bottom line, never leave home without protection! It is inevitable that our phones will get banged and dropped. Only the very paranoid will escape this fate. Given reality if your phone is valuable, please ensure you always protect your phone with a good quality case.
