    I open my (LG AX8600) phone and the main screen cover is lifting / coming off. What kind of adhesive can I use to secure it back down?

    O, sorry to hear that. Things always start to go when ever the warranty runs out lol mainly all of my stuff. But answering your question if its just the screen cover maybe super glue the covers edges litey. It's pretty hard to tell over the computer. :(

    Re: Question

    Thanks for the welcome....

    I wasn't foreshore if this was a common problem and if there would be a chemical reaction with the LED and super glue...

    Re: Question

    You can probably use a toothpick and a very small amount of super glue to fix the screen. You'd have to be really, really careful, though. If you get any glue on the screen or the cover, it will be there forever.

    I'd start by taking the cover fully off and cleaning the old adhesive off. Then, using canned air, blow any dust off the screen. Then apply a small amount of super glue around the edge of the cover, where the old adhesive was and then put the screen back on and apply slight pressure for a few minutes. You should be right as rain after that.

    Guess I'll try the super glue trick....if I mess it up, then I'll trade my blue color phone for another color :eek:)

    Thanks to all for your advise.

    Be Blessed!

    No no no no! Don't try the superglue trick until you try to trade in your phone.

    I ended up using Gorilla glue and applying it with a toothpick. Put something heavy on it for 2 hours and haven't had a problem with it since.

    I chose this option because the phone is awesome and has great reception. I was afraid that the new phone wouldn't be as good.

    Thanks for everyone's advice :)
