    That’s just screen lift that’s never really happened so it’s fake news. Hammer it back in place. Using the ball-peen side is probably most effective. YMMV

    Good luck - I would have used a thin strip of double sided tape.

    First order a new screen and digitizer assembly.

    https://www.amazon.ca/Blackberry-Pas...UvbUpU13486798

    Next watch this video a couple times to get familiar with the process. Order the recommended tools and don't be afraid to pay for a quality screwdriver.



    I labeled each set of screws as a step #1, #2 and so on with sticky note paper then folded the sticky on the screws so they were stuck. Don't loose those little suckers.

    You will be fine and happy you did it.

    Nah.. it will pop up again. I replaced mine and it was perfect. Then with the screen out I was able to apply some glue and fix it properly, so now I have a backup screen.

    I just realized that the AT&T but the disassembly process should be pretty much the same.

    The adhesive just gave out. No need to replace. If anything, the chassis itself got a little bent - not the digitizer.

    So if it pops up again THEN maybe replace it (takes days and days to get parts etc). A good quality tape will work just fine. Overkill on your suggestion imho.

    That's correct. Your opinion. I have read many posts about their ongoing repairs, failures and repeated lifting.

    So this is my overkill opinion and I stand by it.

    Sooo, I have taken my OG Passport apart for various repairs and to my knowledge have not seen any 2-way tape. Is the screen not held down by the 3 tiny PKB screws and the top 5 screws? Where is the tape?

    It's adhesive. But you can use the tape when fixing it.

    There is the screen and the digitizer assembly. The assembly is screwed down and the screen is held by adhesive. I have no comment for any tape that would work but I know glue did for me.

    There is NO tape normally. It is stuck down with an adhesive but in some instances not enough adhesive or poor quality that disintegrates (with heat applied) over time. My fix is a GOOD quality double-sided tape which you could probably buy from a cellphone repair shop, apply it yourself, apply some light pressure over an hour or so, then try it out. If you still have problems (ie the frame is bent etc) then follow The_Passporter's suggestion. I just think it's quicker and easier to try the tape. You can also get tape from Amazon etc. https://www.amazon.ca/Eco-Fused-Adhe...UvbUpU13486824

    I think the phone bent and that's how I got this problem... but it wasn't definitely because of heat. It was probably cause I sat on it today and didn't realize it. So far so good with the Super Glue, but will definitely find a screen replacement and a Passport backup...

    Don't use super glue the chemicals will cause a smoke like effect on the glass. If you want me to detail how to fix it, let me know.

    It's all a moot point - he has already super glued the screen. See post #3. We were all chirping in on how we WOULD have fixed it, lol.

    When I buy a phone and decide to go with it I buy all the caseS, best screen protectorS, cordS and adapterS I think I may need. I have even been known to buy a second phone lol

    Only the OP knows the best of all the suggestions in their user situation. It’ll be ok.
