Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

Well i have a big crack across the front of my screen, and i need to find a replacement to fix it but im not exactly sure WHICH one i should get.

i first need to find out what model number my phone is..which is what SKU it is. T7373, T7380 etc. How would i find this? im asking because all the ebay digitizers i see have different versions, though most are T7373..but you will see some T7878 etc.

some basic information about my phone includes..
Verizon Wireless Touch Pro2 Bought in April, 2010
Qualcomm 7600 CPU
288MB RAM
Model No. RHOD500

im guessing that it is indeed a T7373 so i might just order this digitizer.
http://cgi.ebay.com/US-AT-T-HTC-Touc...item230987432c

it does say that it's only compatible with AT&T TP2 (GSM Only) so i'd rather ask before i buy.

gonna follow these few guides to get it open, and i should be good to go.
Touch Pro 2 Basic Disassembly Pictures (56k warning)
Touch Pro 2 Disassembly with Photos!
http://pocketnow.com/hardware-1/htc-...raining-videos

it's also to my understanding that to fix the screen, i will need...

  1. Screen Digitizer *uknown model, likely T7373?)
  2. T5 Torx Screwdriver
  3. Plastic Pry Tool
  4. "Kapton Tape" (to replace the ones you remove while dissembling near the keyboard and behind the front portion of the device)
  5. Tweezers (to remove "conductive fabric sponge" and "metal pad")
  6. Hair Dryer (to heat the glue so the Digitizer can be removed from the screen smoothly)

Re: Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

ahh yes, i still gotta maybe look around for a video of how to properly remove that screen cuz i dont want to damage anything. i might just resort to asking someone to do it for me, a professional for 20-30bucks hopefully (i'll provide the screen to him).

Re: Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

Definitely not an easy DIY task I tell you. I bought a broken TP2 for parts from eBay because I wanted to figure out why my TP2 does not alight perfectly when closed and I took the whole top section apart, including taking the LCD off the digitizer and cracking the LCD in the process. I am pretty good hands-on and I watched all the guides before, but after seeing how fragile this thing is I would not attempt to do it on my working TP2. I am glad I had a practice run on the broken one. I did figure out the problem with alignment though and it is fixable but not worth the risk to me.

By the way, if you want to practice too it would cost you 25 bucks since the guy is still selling them, search for "HTC Touch Pro2 (Sprint) Cell Phone For Parts >No Brain" on the bay. Much cheaper then breaking the real thing if you ask me. Disclaimer: I have no relation to the seller, just providing the info that I hope will help.

Re: Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

^yes ive actually considered this, and im not gonna lie. especially when separating the digitizer & lcd..i most likely will break the whole dam thing. ugh so hard...and i bet down here in Charleston, South Carolina no one will be able to fix it for a reasonable price (<$100). i guess i might be stuck with this screen unless i can be sure about dissembling AND reassembling it. but it's still good to know, is the SKU version of each phone different only in how they have cameras or not? because my phone doesn't have a camera, but nor does this one. so i didn't know if maybe something in the digitizer chip is different. still not sure what model i have lol.

Re: Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

Go to your settings tab in sense>about phone>phone identity, it should show you on that screen. or if you're not using sense, start>settings>system>device information>phone identity.

hope this helps.

Re: Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

all i get by doing that is RHOD500, which i already listed above. not sure what prefix+4 digit number my version is though. if i search RHOD500 on PDAdb.net, i dont see any RHOD500..though i see Rhodium W, Rhodium 210, Rhodium 300. im guessing that mine is

http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&i..._htc_rhodium_w

meaning that i can't get a T7373 and have to find XV6875?

Re: Replacing the Touch Screen Digitizer

the one i linked to earlier specifically says its for model xv6875 or model 7380
thats the verizon and sprint version respectivly. t7373 is specificlly the european model and possibly the att model. most of them will have the hole for the front camera. i dont think it really makes a difference and they will all fit. they all just have different branding. even the euro model should fit, it will just have a spot for a front facing camera.
