I have replaced the screen and frame for 2 Mi 8 devices, initially, one device had working 4G LTE, I tried to mix and match components so the other device had working 4G LTE as it had my data on, since trying this neither device works with 4G LTE as it should - I have cleaned all parts with isopropyl alcohol thoroughly.|
Both devices are able to detect all 4G/3G/2G antennas in my area and register with them all but only gain internet access when using 3G or 2G!?
I'm presuming this is down to a poor antenna connection? I don't know where the LTE antennas are situated, I have highlighted my best guess in the pictures attached in blue, as well as all the contact surfaces to the frame in red. I'm not sure if the frame is used for the LTE antenna, a PCB or the either motherboard cover?? Any help will be much appreciated!
