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.
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?
