Samsung Galaxy S3 Black Screen + no touch, what should I repair?
Hi, I just dropped my S3 (i9300) and the screen has gone black (the screen is not cracked at all).
I can hear it charge,work and beep for msgs and calls but the screen wont work (it is black, and does NOT response to touch at all).
Im going to attempt a home repair (theres enough youtube videos for that), as professional a screen replacement costs too much for the value of the phone.
Anyways, my question is if I have to substitute just the screen or the screen AND digitalizer. Depending on what you answer I will then buy the spare parts....
Thx for any answers!

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Black Screen + no touch, what should I repair?
Welcome to the forums!
There's three parts to the screen:
- the glass, which protects everything
- the digitizer, which records your touches
- the AMOLED display, which, uh, displays everything
At a minimum you need a new display. You can check to see if the digitizer is working by having someone call the phone and then swipe from left-to-right to answer the call - if that works then the digitizer is probably ok.
