    I have been using Blu vivo 8 for 1.5 year and suddenly the touch screen cracked by due to unknown reason.
    I have removed the old screen but unable to ribbon cable . I have searched and found other models demo in you tube. Other models back cover and battery can be removed but no details about vivo 8. It will be a great help if anyone could send a instruction or link to do the needful.

    Maybe the connector is inside that structure. You may need to remove the metal cover as well.

    Yes, the connector is inside for sure. No instruction or see any scow to remove the metal part or back cover to access the connector. Some support would be highly appreciated.

    You'd have to find somebody who's familiar with the repair of Vivo phones. If you were here in China, no problem, elsewhere, good luck.

    But you might be very lucky, and hopefully somebody reading this thread might know.

    You might be waiting a long time I think.

    I know people in China who probably know how it's attached, and the correct repair methods for this Vivo phone.

    I bought the new touchscreen from China through eBay & requested seller to assist. Awaiting response

    They're often just a parts broker or reseller, and they may not actually have any repair details, and they probably expect the party ordering spare parts to know what to do with them.

    I know some repair techs at the local phone mall, who are repairing Vivos, Oppos, etc. all day long. If it was my phone here in China. I could probably enquire with them on how to do it, or just get them to do the repair. Which I did with a broken screen Samsung S7 I had given me.
