    wife broke my lcd screen on my note 2. ordered the part for it and swapped everything out last night. put it all back together and turned it on and it flashes a streak of colors on the screen for a second and turns off. the phone boots just fine and my computer reads it. is there anything im missing or should I go back to the company I got the lcd screen from?

    This is why my advice to anyone asking about replacing a screen is "don't". You may have put the plug in wrong. Or filed to lock it. Or pinched a wire. Or broken something. You should have plugged the screen in with the phone open, then tried it. Now you have 2 choices, you can open the phone again, see what you did wrong and fix it (which may require replacing more parts) or you can find a shop willing to work on a phone you've already worked on (which most won't - I never allowed that in any cellphone store I owned, it's too expensive when we tell the customer that the repair is going to be more than the phone is worth, he leaves without paying and we're out 5 hours of labor and we have a phone worth scrap in parts.)

    It's why I always say that it's cheaper to pay to have it fixed the first time, than to have it fixed after you've broken more than was wrong with it at first.

    the kit that I ordered was pretty simple. take the connectors off the board and the case and glue off. I did notice that the home button flex cable was damaged.
