    Default Galaxy S4 not working after screen repair.

    So I'm fixing my galaxy s4, but it's not picking up touch. It was working fine after I removed the glass I think, but after i took off all the adhesive it's not picking up touch. Any suggestions? All I used for cleaning the adhesive off was rubbing alcohol, a microfiber cloth, and a cotton ball.

    Have you done a cache partition wipe? It might just help.

    If your phone is powered off you won't need touch, you'll be using the buttons...at least that's how it is on my N5. Are you powered off?

    You won't lose anything as long as you don't accidentally do a factory reset.

    Yeah that didn't work. I'll have the person order the LCD/digitizer assembly, do you guys think that's messed up?

    I know of someone who tried a glass-only replacement and like you he lost touch. You need the right sort of adhesive layer between the glass and the digitiser but if this was a kit you presumably got that?
    Can you adjust touch sensitivity on the S4?
    Otherwise if you decide on a glass+digitiser replacement you've got nothing to lose by having another go with the glass first.
