    I bought a new LCD for my iPhone 3GS on ebay. The LCD was advertised as being a 3GS LCD. However, the HF/e1 is a different size and I can't get it to fit into the No.1 socket.

    Here is a photo for comparison:
    The new LCD on the bottom and the old LCD at the top.

    From this picture, can anyone tell whether I have received an incompatible LCD. If not, and the new LCD is compatible, any suggestions to assist in connecting this bit would be appreciated.


    P.S. If either the content of this post or the location of it have upset anyone or breached any of the established conventions within this forum, then I apologize.

    Same issue


    I'm having the exact same problem. I ordered two replacement LCDs from Amazon for my iPhone 3GS and BOTH came with differently sized #1 connectors than my original. Same as your photo. Did you find a solution to this problem?
