    I recently replaced the glass screen on my s3, by accidentally i cut the cable/ribbon sensor that is used for the menu and return buttons. I ended up putting the new screen on anyways. Now the lcd screen does not respond to touch. The screen works fine but i cannot do anything since it does not respond when i touch the lcd.
    My question is, if i replace this with a new ribbon willl the lcd screen start working again?

    Not sure man. Might be worth buying a new digitizer in case you broke that too.
    Was it the ribbon below the back button?
