  1. This is a good article. Three months after I bought my M6 note, the touch screen stopped responding to touch. I sent for another entire screen. I have been able to take the phone apart. I connected the replacement screen and the phone will boot up. But the second touch screen doesn’t work either. Do you have any info on why this might be so?
