The Glo uses IR touch. It doesn't have any touch functions in the screen. The IR sensors and emitters stick up around the screen from the PCB. If you pull one apart, you have to get get the screen sitting properly for the touch to work.

So I bought the replacement screen on AliExpress from China LCD Screen Store back on December 26th. Got in a week ago (Yay covid shipping!).

I had mostly no issues installing it. ZERO horizontal play when installing, but vertically I messed it up first try. so on my dry fit, the touch screen wasn't working well and I could see a boarder of the epaper screen. I redid the install and it was flawless this time when I realized I had to shift it up/down. Once I was happy with the fit I used double sided tape to more securely install everything.

Ribbons were a bit tight and awkward when I had the screen slightly wrong in position. Once it was lined up correctly, the ribbon cables worked without strain!

No real issues or anything like that!
