Selling a Sony Xperia Z3 Compact - the bottom half of the touchscreen works however the top half is unresponsive - the screen also has also crack across it.

Everything else with the phone still works fine - have been using it with a Micro USB mouse which works perfectly.

Comes with original box & charger. Factory unlocked to any network.

Let me know if you have any further questions or wish to make an offer. Thanks.

Did it just stop working? I have the same issue but not quite as bad. On mine you can't drag the notification bar down from the top, while in portrait (landscape is fine). It seems to be that that edge of the phone is no longer responsive to touch.

If I used the screen test, I can black out all the screen apart from a slither at the top.

Mine it just happened, one day it just became like that. I loved the 'phone, same about the quality.

If you guys get a screen/digitizer/frame assembly off eBay for around £37 they are really easy to fix.

Did it that many times on my wife's phone I could do it in around 15 mins. There's lots of videos on YouTube, looks complicated at first but as long as you get the screen with frame its literally undoing about 15 screws, popping out the logic board and camera and swapping it over to the new frame

Yeah it's pretty easy to do I just can't be bothered with the hassle - already got myself a replacement :D

Hmmm, last time I looked, I saw some videos to replace the screen/digitizer and it looked overly complicated. So what you are saying is buy the frame as well and then just put the internals into the new frame right.

Are the ones you buy off eBay legit or third party? £37 and I can't decide if its worth it. I guess it is just sittting in a drawer at the moment as I already have a different phone.

​They won't be OEM parts, though for the z3 compact I wouldn't worry about that as the screens are of poor quality anyway. My wife had it 2 weeks before the screen magically cracked, I replaced and it lasted 2 months, then it cracked again after a month.. The shortest time it lasted was 2 days.

In the end it was replace the screen for the 6th time or sell the phone, worked out the same sort of price for selling faulty or fixing the screen (was about £60 then)

But yeah other than that it is really easy. As far as memory serves use a heat gun and sucker to get the back glass off, undo all the screws around the middle frame and prize it out, disconnect the NFC connection on the battery, remove 1 screw from the logic board, disconnect the camera ribbon, gently prize the battery away from the logic board enough to disconnect and push the screen ribbon through the hole, remove both logic board and camera. Then reverse for the process for fitting.

If you do decide to do it be careful with the inner middle frame as its quite weak, mine snapped in 2 places due to the constant removal. And the frames usually come with new speakers in which is a bonus

​youre seriously expecting to sell this for £70 when it's broken???

No. I don't really know how much it's worth and the cheapest one I could find on eBay was £80, so I'm looking for offers.

Thanks for the useless comment in the thread though.
