I have a problem also. I replaced my digitizer (though I don't think it needed replacing) and the glass which was cracked. Everthing went well. Touch screen and internet work fine. However, I can't place calls. When I do the screen turns dark and no other function will work until the call is dropped. In addition, my bluetooth still works. Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

I'm having the same problem with my phone. I checked the contacts and they're fine. The proximity sensor works fine although sometimes I have to press the glass in for it to align properly. I assume this is becuase the adhesive isn't as sticky anymore and so the digitizer isn't sticking to the metal plate, causing the assembly to rise away from the sensor. The speaker phone, button tones, and bluetooth all work. If you have any ideas please respond. I won't hesitate to disassemble my phone again to fix it as I didn't find it too difficult to repair. Thanks =)

Hi,

We see this sometimes when people are repairing their phones. This is often caused by adhesive covering the clear hole on the digitizer that the proximity sensor "sees" through. Make sure the sensor is not blocked and your issue should be resolved.

I resolved the issue with the proximity sensor but the phone still only works on speaker or with bluetooth. The button tones work fine so I know the speaker is working. I also double-checked the connections and everything seems to be in order. Any other ideas?

The phone has 2 speakers. A loud speaker and an earpiece speaker. Your earpiece speaker is not working. Check to make sure you installed this back the correct way round.

Alright so last week I attempted repairing my completely shattered digitizer, it went fine until I got to removing the glass and screen. The glass was completely shattered and the adhesive was holding the screen to the frame of the phone so I ended up pulling the LCD apart rather than get the screen and glass out in one piece.
Iíve since gotten a new LCD and the digitizer attached but Iím getting light bleed through that appears to be coming from the four ďhomeĒ, ďsearchĒ buttons on the bottom of the phone. I assume this is because the gasket tape is clear which is allowing light through? The solution I thought up was to use a thin stipe of electrical tape instead or in conjunction with the clear gasket tape.

I havenít tried anything yet as it appears my ear-piece is also shot so Iím waiting for that to come in from Repairs Universe. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas for light bleed through?

Ok so I have just fixed my phone with a new digitizer and the three issues I encountered were:

1) earpiece not working during calls although they could hear me
2) phone blacking out when receiving call and needed to remove the battery to reset
3) bleeding through under the home/menu/back/search buttons

after extensive searching I found the solution was quite simple:

1) the front speaker doesn't plug in instead it has two contacts to a metal plate at the front of the phone, due to adhesive this was pulled out when I removed the original digitizer. When I located the speaker I just popped it back in and it was fixed (if you threw it out they are about $3 on ebay)

2) this is indeed cause of the proximity sensor. Normally there is a rubber surround on the IR emitter (the right most one), as with the speaker adhesive makes this stuck to the digitizer so again it was pulled off when I removed the original digitizer. I relocated the rubber and replaced it. The other thing that I found would work is a small 1-2mm square piece of hard foam with a hole in the middle and place it over the IR emitter.

3) The bleeding is because there is normally black tape on the underside of the digitizer beneath the menu buttons, just peel it off the original digitizer and transfer to the new one, there are little white lines to show you how to place the corners on the digitizer. I am sure that any completely opaque tape would work just as well. Also there was a white piece of tape on the original digitizer to go behind the menu buttons but this just makes them look more white so is not as annoying if it is missing.

I hope this helps with those that were as frustrated as me

I looked all around trying to find a tutorial on how to actually replace the digitizer on this specific model only to be disappointed that nobody had created one yet.
(I personally will not be taking apart my phone again to create one with pics though.)


I just changed my sensitive screen on an HTC MAGIC using your guidelines. There is still no detailled so I took some picture and will try to buils one using your guidelines and some pictures and new advises
Thanks a lot for your thread

Hi,

We actually made a video guide as well for this model a long time back showing how to replace the digitizer. You can find it here - HTC Aria Repair Guide
