    Has anyone taken theirs apart before?

    My turbo had water damage and wouldnt work and my wifes turbo has a busted LCD screen. She was able to get a new phone and keep her turbo so I took both of ours apart to switch her motherboard into mine. I am having the hardest time trying to reconnect the LCD screen to the motherboard. Anyone have any tips?

    I can get it to power up, but I cannot get the screen to work.

    You pull the screen connection out, or flip up the release bar?

    Not sure, I wasnt sure that I even got the screen connection right. Does it slide into something, or just rest on something?

    The white part flips up, then the ribbon slides in up to the line. It's a little tight/tricky to hold it inserted while the white bar is pressed rotated down.
