I cracked my screen really bad a few weeks ago and finally got my replacement digitizer in yesterday. I tore apart my droid incredible and installed the new one, it looks beautiful. HOWEVER, I found out, while trying to text with Swype, that there's some kind of major dead area. I tested it out on the Draw app to see where they were, and well, just watch the video:
As you can see, first i tried scrolling on the gallery app. The dead areas seem to be at the bottom, because when you saw me scrolling smoothly, I was only thumbing the top half of the screen. As soon as I swiped into the bottom half of it, it always grabs the thumb-bar on the side and scrolls through everything fast.
I went into the "draw" app to draw some diagonal lines, and you can see that there's seemingly 2 horizontal lines of deadness (?) in the bottom half the screen.
Wtf? I guess i shouldn't have bought from one of those cheapo sellers on ebay. Next time I'll choose more carefully. But what can I do about it? Is this a common issue that's solved by some little thing I just overlooked? I stuck the new digitizer onto the housing with rubber caulking, but it's not conductive, so I don't think that's it. Is it just a bad digitizer, and I'm screwed?
