    I have replaced the digitzer on my Huawei Ascend Y300 now the screen is un responsive and not calibrated properly. The screen works but you have to press a few times to select a button and you have to aim slightly above the button to press it. When I replaced the digitizer, I noticed a plastic film, like a screen protector on the other side of the digitizer (the side that is in contact with the LCD) and when I peeled up the corner of this film, the glass was oily, so I stuck it back down. Should I have removed this film before installing the digitizer?
    Thanks, Dan.

    Hmmmmm sounds like you may need to get another digitalizer

    I have removed the film on the back anyway and the screen is much more responsive and the calibration is spot on, so it would seem the problem is solved!
  4. The film has to be removed before you install a digitizer. Any reputable guy-who-fixes-phones would tell you this

    I wasn't sure because it seemed oily but now I know that the oily stuff makes the screen more sensitive and responsive. Thanks anyway.
