Hello,

My Desire's internal display (not the digitizer) was cracked and was not functioning, so when I found the detailed guide here, I went on and ordered a replacement AMOLED from eBay.

It arrived and I just popped the old one out and installed it in according to the instructions. However, when I turn the phone on, the following happens:
*The phone boots, it does it's initial vibration thingy
*Then the display comes to life, however instead of HTC boot logo, all I see is random jitter/noise (will add photograph)
*Normal power up and boot sequence goes on, keys come to life, illumination for keys kicks in

When I plugged the phone in to a PC which had a fresh installation of Windows, it recognized the phone as a device, searched and found it's drivers and showed it as a Android phone, which makes me think that the phone functions normally besides the display problem. Also, the phone charges when connected to the PC.

If you have any ideas or suggestions as to overcome this issue I described above, I will be extremely glad to hear them, as I reverted to using a five years old Nokia 6230 as a replacement phone and it simply drives me nuts in the absence of good ol' Android OS.

Other information on the issue:
*I considered the possibility that mine was a AMOLED or SLCD model and I ordered the other type of display, creating an incompatibility. However, stickers on both the cracked display and the one I newly ordered are the same, they have same model numbers and both are marked as 'Samsung Mobile Display', which makes me conclude I had an AMOLED display and I correctly ordered another AMOLED as a replacement, making the possibility of incompatibility zero.
*Volume down + Power button menu does indeed come up, however because only random jitter is seen as it's the case with normal boot, I can't really do anything in that menu.

Bought it on ebay ... from a shop or or a private person?  In the latter case it might have come out of a Desire which was dropped as well, so it could be faulty.  Buying electronics on ebay is a risky thing.

There could be damage to your main board as a result of the fall.

Either way, I can't really provide a solution.  The only way to find out which is the problem, would be to either order another AMOLED and hope that it works, or to let HTC fix the phone (which IMO is always the better option).

I got the replacement from a eBay shop with over 5.000 transactions and a high score.
Still trying to determine if the problem is with the motherboard or the replacement AMOLED.

Although connecting the phone to my PC results in Windows recognizing the device when I turn it on, I went on and did another experiment that I hoped would give an idea on the issue.

I took a SIM card, sticked it in to a working phone and removed PIN code requests from it. Then, I sticked that SIM card into the Desire I am having the issue with and booted the device.

Despite Windows recognizing the device when booted, after waiting for 2 minutes and calling the number associated with the SIM card resulted in "number out of reach". However, as I'm not very proficient with the boot up process of Desire, I can't automatically assume that a PIN code free SIM would be active without any user interaction when the device is turned on.

Now I'm trying to get my hands on another working AMOLED screen and with that I hope I will be able to reach a definitive conclusion.

Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You could indeed try to get a second AMOLED, but I'm thinking more and more among the lines of a broken main board.  If it were my phone, I'd go to the shop and let HTC take care of the problem.  And yes, I know that the repair bill could be almost as high as the price of the phone.

@alpmighty

In the same boat myself mate.  Dropped my Desire today & both screens (touch & Amoled) smashed.

My first concern was if the phone was still in working order before I go out & buy new screens so what I did was:

(a) turned off sim lock from a different phone (no sim password required at power up)
(b) put sim back into smashed screen Desire
(c) turned it on
(d) waited for the 'jingle' as I can see nothing as screens are in bits
(e) waited for about 1 min
(f) called the Desire & it rang but obv could not answer!
(g) sent a text to Desire and heard it coming through!

I'm happy my phone is probably ok so gonna order the screens, follow this (http://tjworld.net/blog/htc-desire-tear-down) and hopefully be back up-and-running soon.

Any other advice/tips etc: from anyone here would be appreciated.

If your phone is AMOLED, replacing it with an SLCD screen might brick it. So, be careful with that...

I know this might be a lot to ask, but do you mind making a video guide when replacing it? I think some owners(myself included) will feel better knowing that they are not totally screwed if they wreck the screen Wink

Was planning to use this http://tjworld.net/blog/htc-desire-tear-down and also the official 'HTC Desire Disassembly' video  
HTC Desire Disassembly Video


Obviously unlike the video I don't have to strip everything back but the bits I need are in the video & the process doesn't look too hard to be fair.

Will let you know how I get on.

Hoping for some good links from members to suppliers but currently have both screens priced and coming in around the 95 - 100 mark which isn't too bad.  I also get all the disassembly tools I need provided by the Amoled screen supplier  Smiley

Got my 2 screens (Digitizer & AMOLED) from e-Bay seller 'bestsellstuff'.  They are based in the UK and delivered to Ireland quickly after ordering.  Cost of both screens inc P&P to Ireland was GBP 85 which I thought was excellent.  Top class e-Bay seller who answered all my questions promptly, delivered promptly and also supplied the required tools needed to do the installation.

Fitted the screen using a combination of (a) http://tjworld.net/blog/htc-desire-tear-down#Test  and (b) the HTC disassembly video I embedded in my post above.

Process was very straightforward and took me less than 1 hour.

Result is a fully working and restored HTC Desire  Smiley Smiley Smiley

I had been quoted huge money by a repair shop here in Ireland and to send it back to HTC involved sending it to the UK (at my cost), them to look at it and quote on it and either fix it & send it back (at my cost) or if I didn't like the quote then have it sent back unrepaired (at my cost).

No Thanks HTC....  Smiley

First of all, congratulations on restoring your Desire. We are all glad for you.
Next, this is great news for all of us, since we now know that HTC no longer has us by the short hair when it comes to repairs.

A day to celebrate Smiley

Thanks for that, i'm delighted.

One thing I forgot to mention is that when you bond the Digitizer to the frame with the double sided tape (the last step) make sure (a) you remove every spec of grit, dirt, dust from both the underside of the digitizer and the AMOLED   (b) you have a complete run of double sided tape butted up tight at each corner; this should prevent any dirt/dust getting in underneath going forward.

Been using my restored Desire all day now and it really is back to 100%

Ah... it always sound complicated, but I'm actually feeling glad that (touch wood!) if there's ever the need, there's a option for consumers who are willing to risk it to be able to repair it themselves Smiley

This thread is definitely getting stickied
