Screen broke, replaced now captive buttons not working...
OK, wife dropped the phone from her pocket some weeks back and the screen scattered. I ordered a screen said to be for the MB526. I put packing tape on it for her to get by with until the new screen arrived and I could install it. Got the screen last week and today got time to install it. Install went smooth. But now that the phone is on none of the buttons at the bottom work. Everything in the screen area works and appears to be lined up right with the images when you touch it. I did notice the earpiece hole looks just about 1/4 the height of the hole out of line.
Any one else replace a screen and have this problem?
Also, the tools that came with the kit were crap, attempting to get the first T5 screw out the tool striped. Have to buy a quality T5 driver, not an easy size to find.
I purchased it from e-vango on ebay, until hear back from them I would avoid them for know.
