    Simple, yet brilliant. Was a great help to replace my screen!

    Hi mate

    Is the procedure same for Sony Xperia Z3 D6603?


  3. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    The touch isn't working after replacement ! Plz zzz help!!

  4. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Why won't it be water proof after the raplacement?

  5. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Hello. I know this post dated back in 2015 but I hope I'd get your reply. I don't wanna spend cash of like about 200 dollars on repairing it or even getting a new phone. Uhm, my phone's back is cracked. And then gradually parts of my touchscreen isn't working. If you were to split the screen from the top down into five parts, the parts that don't work are the first, third and fifth. I don't know if you can visualise that. Basically the home button area, the drop down menu on the top and the middle part of the screen but not entirely. If I were to replace the LCD, will it help? Or is it because of the chip or something else in it is broken?

  6. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    I literally just finished replacing my screen and back cover, thanks to this video. Thank you!!

  7. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Well, alright! So, I can order everything here (even the tools (I see the guitar picks))? What kind of other heat source can you use (blow dryer?)? And, WAS it waterproof, lol? I just turned on this phone and the dog knocked it into the street — screen crush. Thanks!

  13. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    hello is there a place where i can just buy the connector between the phone board and the screen? thanks!

    Arkadaşlar lütfen benim dediklerimi dinleyin sakın telefonlarınızı garanti hariç başka yerlere de telefonlarınızı yapmayın vallahi bana da dediler ama ben dinlemedim tam 3 kez farklı yerlere gönderdim telefonu ya sesinde sorun çıkıyor ya , ekranda çatlama oluyor siz siz olun böyle yerlerde yapmayın ben bu telefonları yapanlarla bir sorunum yok ama buradaki ürünler ne kadar orijinal deseler de gerçek dışıdır bildiğimiz çakma ekranlardır.Ben yandım sizde yanmayın kendinize bir tane 150 TL'lik bir telefon alın bundan iyidir bozuk olan telefonla da öyle böyle idare edin işte 🙁

  15. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    It really helped me! I did exactly like the video and it worked out just fine.


  16. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Do not use adhesive sticker, use a glue B-7000 (buy on eBay or at local store). Adhesive sticker does not keep the screen tightly on the left side and bottom corner due to a design ledge. With the glue it's even possible to make the phone water-proof again. The glue allows to open the phone again with the same technique.

    how can I get the original LCD screen with adhesive sticker and the tools? Joy from Philippines

  21. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Does this process works with Xperia Z3 (Not compact)

  22. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    is it not waterproof after the change, because of low quality of the adhesives or the imperfect fit of the plastic? Even a OEM? Are there significant difference between Custom and OEM? You recommend a silicon adhesive glue, but if i need to replace it again?

  23. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    hi i never put my z3(not compact) under water but is always good to be sure it is rly water proof and the thing is you se that thing above sony logo at min 1:38 idk if it makes the phone water proof but my z3 like half of that seems to be torn , its is still under warranty idk if i can do something or i need to replace the screen just for that

  24. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Successfully used tutorial and mentioned material! Thanks for the great
    and easy to understand tutorial, the prepaired links and fast shipping!
    (PS: Maybe you could change "Test display before closing back cover" from tip to mandatory. I just saw your tip right before closing and then realised the screen cable got unfixed…worked for me but someone else might overlook it)

  25. February 22, 2017 at 10:48 am —

    Hola amigo, tengo un Sony Xperia Z3, la cual se me rompió la pantalla delantera, se regó la tinta y el táctil no responde, que tendría que hacer, o me compro un juego de pantalla + táctil completo para que lo cambien, ya que me preocupa que la tinta se haya regado.
