Use this guide to replace your front panel assembly. The front panel is not separable from the LCD. A new front panel assembly will give you a new front glass panel, digitizer, and LCD.

If you bought them separately, be careful when sticking the LCD to the digitizer as the entire surface of the LCD is covered with glue. Once it sticks to the LCD, you will not be able to remove it.

Étape 1 Front Panel  ¶ 

Use the edge of an iPod opening tool to begin peeling the loop of copper tape wrapped around the connector near the center of the top edge of the logic board. Continue peeling the tape until it is free from the logic board. Using a pair of tweezers to peel the tape greatly simplifies the task if you've got them.

  • Remove the front panel assembly from the Touch.

  • If you are installing a new display assembly, you will want to replace the old adhesive with new adhesive.

  • Remove as much of the old adhesive as you can and then apply new adhesive strips to the appropriate places.

  • You will also need to transfer the metal plate that sits over the front camera and sensor windows. You can do this using a heat gun or hair dryer.

  • After you have reassembled your device, it is common to get a white screen when powering it up for the first time. All you have to do is a soft reset and that should fix it. This is accomplished by holding down the power button and the home button until it restarts, or running the battery all the way down until it turns off.

  • Double check that the ribbon cable is not pinched between the LCD and the metal plate. Fold it back on itself so that it doesn't get pinched. If the ribbon cable is pinched, you may get a white screen that cannot be fixed because the traces on the ribbon cable have been damaged.
