    Hello,

    I followed this tutorial, and it was very helpful. However, the screen does not react to touch. Its there some sort of hard reboot required? Or is my problem likely a screen malfunction problem?

    Thanks,

    Hi Keegan.  Did you ever get a response to your question on this?  I just replaced my screen on a kindle fire hd8 today and am having issues with the touch screen.  it turns on and apps come up but when I try to enter a passcode certain numbers won’t populate and certain areas of the screen won’t respond.  It’s very touchy in some areas and not so much in others. :(

    Cheryl Waltz -

    Mine is doing that NO response thing also. Have inspected for any tiny hsrd to see damages. Looks perfectly fine. Why it no response now?

    I think no one has an answer for why the touch screen doesnt feel touchy any more after a quick freedom from attachment time. Maybe that super tough sticky adhesive,once its been conquered successfully, lets the magic touch electrons escape from the screen so it doesn’t recognize the touch as completing the circuit. Any ideas on that? I’ve heard of the smoke theory before, but no smoke escaped that was visible. And the Olofonz Theory, that I learned a bunch of years ago in the USN, doesnt apply to this mystery either. Anybody out there? Please, ET geeks, I need some help so I can grow my skill levels higher to prevent the total destruction of my budget by replacing one cell phone, or tablet, right after another. Ouch!

    I’m confused, other videos online give the suggestion that to remove the screen is a longer process. Also the pictures don’t appear to illustrate the actual glass being removed, between step 3 & 4 the glass cover has disappeared and there’s no mention of it.

    You will need to reheat the screen so it can adhere to the LCD.

    I'm having a similar issue with the touch screen not responding to touch, Hadn't used it in 2 months since my son got sick all over it and it didn't seem to want to charge or hold a charge after cleaning and drying it up,.. until today I decided to check it out, which it was able to charge and powered on, which soon after jumped to 9% charge then 50%, I checked to see if there was a new system update, which there was one downloaded/ready to install and one pending or something like that and it mentioned that it would auto install the next time the Kindle wasn't in use or I could choose to update now, clicked now to get it over with and ever since the screen has been non responsive. now the screen will come on but I am unable to slide unlock or press anything, I can hold the power button and the option pops up to restart or turn off and I can't select either,… the volume buttons work, and the power button, which I've tried the “hold the power button for 40seconds “ to restart but it doesn't help…..

    I'm lost….

    I read from another site that you should disconnect the battery not just power off and to also ground yourself or get a grounding strap from a electronic supply place do that you do not short anything out. I have not done mine yet I am still researching. I will send a link if I can find a good one . Thanks for the warnings.

    I just successfully replaced the glass and digitizer on a Kindle Fire HD 8 Plus 10th generation (as a complete novice). This is NOT all it took. The digitizer has to replaced and the glass replacement should come with that attached. It has to be threaded through and carefully inserted into the port. There were no instructions that came with the kit I ordered off Amazon for $26.99 and no videos of the 10th generation model. I watched some older ones…went for it…and it worked!

  6. There are four black tabs on the bottom of the battery that run strips of adhesive beneath the battery. Pull on each tab individually until all four strips are removed. Once the last adhesive strip is removed, the battery will pop out.

After following these instructions and replacing the battery, all works but the screen. We have sound, volume etc..but no screen.

Any ideas what may be wrong?

Make sure the ribbon cable is plugged in.

I got a recent Fire HD 8 in the uk. This isn’t correct for that version. The rear case just unclips with a tool down the side of the case - much simpler. You definitely don’t want to be trying the above method on my version!

A further comment about the two connections for first timers would be helpful. The battery cable connection comes straight up and reconnects nested directly straight top down into the female socket. Unfamiliar with small thin video screen cables especially in teh1 to 2 inch working space, I could not understand why the cable would not ‘Plug” in. Eventually I realized that it was a clamp type connection and that the clamp was closed. After I flipped it open, I was able to hold the ribbon in position and flip the clamp closed. I’m glad for the experience, otherwise it would not have seem such an accomplishment for such a simple connection. Do you have a primer that describes these basic procedures? Also, how do you “follow the step in reverse order” with respect to the glue strips, and what is the record measurement for the length you can pull these strips? I got to at least 9” before it let go.

Thanks for the help. Dave B

PS. The battery change was a success, but the patient is still ill. The start-up still screen loops over and over, and hard reset does not work. Any ideas? Dave B

Are there 2 Kindle 8s? Mine is supposed to be 7th generation, not 5th.
