Hi everyone,

Last night my HTC Desire decided to leap out of my shirt pocket and land face down on the concrete, which of course resulted in the screen shattering.

The phone still works flawlessly and the AMOLED screen seems undamaged even the touchscreen still works flawlessly despite being completely shattered.  I have covered it in clear tape to prevent the glass from splintering which allows me to still use the phone until I can repair it.

The problem is, I am being told that there are currently no replacement touch panels in the UK (which is where I live) due to the device being so new to market, so I am not sure how I can get it repaired.  Someone told me the touch panel on the Desire is identical to the Nexus One, can anyone confirm if this is true or not?  If I can just replace it with a Nexus One touch panel that would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The glass on the front will not be the same as the Nexus has the touch sensitive buttons which the desire does not which means your stuck with it for now. Have you tried emailing HTC if they can fix it for you but the charge will be quite high around 70 to over a hundred sometimes. which part of the phone is broken in terms of level the glass on the front or the middle part ?

Paladine: who told you that the UK has not panels? was it HTC?  If not then its worth contacting them directly.

I've currently got my Desire disassembled and have ordered replacement AMOLED and Touch Screen from China. I'm taking photos and documenting the process and will publish a HowTo later.

The AMOLED and Touch Screen and shipping was US$ 114.50.

I've just found this: http://mobile.brando.com/htc-desire-replacement-touch-screen_p05375c0695d088.html

Do you think this would include all the components of the Desire screen?? I too dropped mine and am looking of a method of repair.

It depends on the damage. What you're linking to is the digitiser  a.k.a the touch-screen. If the AMOLED a.k.a. display is also damaged you'll need one of those as well.

Best thing to do is to inspect the AMOLED visually for any signs of defects, probably stripping the device down and powering it up with the front chassis and digitiser detached from the rest of the components so you can check the AMOLED *and* still have the digitiser connected.

How's the pioneering surgery going?

I'd be really interested in any disassembly advice you've got as I'm planning on cracking mine open very soon. Mine went for a little swim in the sea and I'm hoping to clean out any salty residue before I attempt to turn it on again. Don't fancy my chances though.

I did post a link to my HTC Desire tear-down guide in a How-To thread. Here's the direct link to my step-by-step photo guide.

Hi all - further to this, my screen was also shattered. In fact the top touch screen is undamaged, but the amoled underneath is shattered, which seems strange. Mine was caused by a faulty girlfriend. Am currently trying to fix this as well but no luck so far, so any advice there would be appreciated Smiley

Anyhow, does anyone have a link where I can get a replacement amoled for the desire? I've seen replacement for the Nexus 1, but am unsure as to whether this would be the same. Many thanks!

Hi all,

I'm here for the same reason! I just dropped the phone on the ground and the screen is all broken.

I saw the TJ's webpage (http://tjworld.net/blog/htc-desire-tear-down) and my phone looks like the one in the first picture.

BUT, I can use normally the phone, and the LCD did not leaked.
I have one question: Is this glass the touch-screen only or is the AMOLED as well? I did not got the difference of those actually.

Do someone could tell me if I only change the glass (touchscreen?), will be ok?

Tks!
