I see that there was a response to someone else having this issue. If it is not a ribbon, where is the internal speaker located so I can make sure it is has not shifted. I would appreciate any suggestions or advice. Many thanks!!
Hi,

Your earpiece speaker is not working. This speaker is in the front housing of the phone. It's unlikely it's a connection issue as the speakers are enclosed and can not move around.

These speakers can get damaged from moisture / knocks & drops.

We have these replacement speakers cheaply on our website if needed.

How far into the tear down is the access to the ear speaker. My phone was bumped, ok dropped, and the speaker now distorts. I was thinking about pulling it out and replacing it, but not sure I want to mess up the phone. What attaches the speaker?

any tips would help, thanks.

In this video we are we are taking the phone apart to replace a badly cracked touch screen digitizer.

Please let us know if you have any questions or recommendations for improving the guide.

Hope it helps.

I need some help. I just tried to replace the front bezel on my incredible 2. I got it all back together and it looked great. I turned it on and there was nothing on the screen. In the bottom left corner I noticed a little crack with what looked like liquid under the glass. I instantly ordered a new digitizer from repairs universe, where I bought the bezel. My question is this, does that small crack in the lcd keep the screen from showing anything, or did I miss something putting it back together?

Thanks

Hi,

This sounds like you have damaged the LCD screen and this is why it is black. You will need a replacement LCD screen to fix your phone.

Default Fixed Phone, but...

I quickly received my new lcd from repairsunivers.com, what service! I have successfully gotten my phone working again, thank you very very much. However, the new lcd screen has kind of a green tint to it. I have looked through all the display settings and have found no way to change this. Could it be the lcd, could it be that I did something incorrectly? Also, I was so confused with the self adhesive strips that I didn't use them. The glass/lcd seems to be lifting a little from the front bezel for this reason. I dread taking this thing apart again, but I purchased all this stuff so it would be like new. Does anyone have any advice for me about these issues?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Did you remove the screen protector from the screen before installing?

As for the glass coming away from the bezel you may wish to use some adhesive strips to secure this down. You can find these here - Adhesive Strips for Touch Screen Digitizers

repairsuniverse, if you read this I am considering purchasing a new charging port for my htc incredible (first issue). I have watched your tear-down video but am wondering how far I'd need to tear down the phone in order to swap out the charge port and if there's any soldering involved. What I'd love to hear is I all I need is to take off the back, unclip the port and clip on a new one. LOL Thanks in advance for any help.

Unfortunately replacing the charge port is not as easy as the screen. The port is part of the motherboard and will require soldering.

Nice repair guide. Do you carry the fused screen for this model?
