9810 Dissassembly/Reassembly issues
I just swapped out the full housing on my 9810 (OMG removing the screen and digitizer is difficult) and now it won't turn on.
So obviously odds are I ruined it but any opinions or advice as to what the issue may be would be very much appreciated.
-Worked fine previously.
-Full housing swap so Everything was disassembled and reassembled.
-Now when I put the battery in the red light comes on for 5 seconds, goes off for 30 seconds, and then repeats forever.
-Battery is fully charged, I tested it on my other 9810.
Everything I have seen online suggests that the slow flashing of the red light suggests a software issue, but based on the circumstances it is most likely hardware related.

we cant help. As a technician for a living I can tell you your best option is to take the thing apart again and look for errors. Reassemble and look for chances to screw up. Dont screw up this time!
Is it possible that a little dust in one of the connecters would cause that issue? Or perhaps if the heat gun damaged the screen would that cause it?
I think I might take apart my other 9810 and swap the components 1 by 1 to try to figure it out.

just did mine last week. Replaced digitizer, reassembled and had the same problem...except I knew what it was. While using brute force to pry the glued in LCD away from the body, I accidentally cut the LCD ribbon. Reassembled anyway and slow pulse red light was the outcome. Ordered a new LCD, complete disassemble and reassemble again and I'm back up and running. I think something is just not plugged in properly.

I've taken apart my 9810 before so I could replace the digitizer. Luckily I didn't have to replace the LCD screen or something like that, those would have been to remove. This was also done without the proper torx screw drivers. I think I had the proper one for the first few big torx screws, but had to use a flat head and/or pliers with the smaller ones.
Anyway, yes, the digitizer and screen are really hard to put together, I would definitely check all connections. You likely just have something not connected properly.
I took it completely apart again and reassembled it. I made sure all the connections were secure.
It still won't turn on.
Anyone want to buy a 9810 cheap?
