    My nexus 7 had a broken screen so I bought a lcd and digitizer seperate. The lcd came is so I thought I would test it without the digitizer attached. Should the screen come on without the digitizer attached. Thanks.

    I imagine it will. You won't have any touch input, but it should show signs of life at least.

    That is what I thought. I must have other problems or got a bad lcd.

    My lcd ribbon cable is rev. 1.1. Will the rev 11.1 work also. They are cheaper on ebay. The only thing I can think to change next.

    So no one has any advice for me. My nexus can be seen by my computer so I know it works but with new screen replacement I get nothing. Would replacing the cable work or most likely a bad lcd.

    Sorry that you've not had an answer... not everyone is comfortable with replacing screens/digitizers/etc though - know I wouldn't... just don't trust myself :eek:

    It is not that bad. Better than putting it in the garbage. I bought the lcd only because it is cheaper to buy the two pieces separate. Not sure what to check next though.
