Worked fine untill I tried to remove it to get it centered. the slightest bit of pressure made the screen go grid like. now it looks like a backlit stock screen which I can live with. This kit needs to come with a centering bracket.
When I had tested the screen, I noticed the bottom left corner quadrant looked what i can best describe as warped. I installed it thinking it was just a trick of my eyes but, it’s still there. It’s barely noticeable and more noticeable when I white image is displayed. Maybe it’s just me or the screen or what have you.
Other than that, it looks great overall!
The screen didn't line up with the IPS ready shell. And was significantly fainter than the Hispeedo display I have in another unit even with the contrast wheel adjusted. Neither the embedded or external touch sensor would work. Even with the additional power regulator I couldn't get the LEDs to light with this screen installed either. I attached a photo for comparison, the Hispeedo display is on the left, the funny playing on the right.
I'm sorry to hear of the issue! Please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may get this resolved for you.
The installation was a breeze. Only a few minor cuts were required on the original case plastic to make the display fit, and the foam tape was forgiving. I was able to fine tune the position of the screen and match it with the new glass. I'll definitely be shopping again.
