    I recently took my SII to be repaired after the flex cable that controls the home/back buttons snapped. It appears that the tech manage to crack the casing when he removed the screen and despite his best effort to discreetly glue the screen back in place the display no longer works and the screen just falls out. Short of buying a new outer casing, is there a way to realign and secure the screen?

    Unfortunately with out seeing the device it's difficult to see if you might be able to purchase new housing to resolve the issue. But as you mentioned the display screen does not work you may just have to purchase new a new screen assembly and housing if the LCD is damaged. I would consider getting a second opinion from another local repair tech so they will be able to see the problem first hand but as mentioned it can be difficult to diagnose with a visual inspection.

    Maybe post a picture?

    Hope this helps!
