What do you mean by 'put the screen back'? Do you mean the scratch guard? And also what do you mean by 'contacts connected'? You may have to take it to the Genius Bar at the nearest Apple store, but be sure to reply to the above questions. Welcome to iPF and hope you have a good time here. Its a pleasure meeting you. :)

Here are some pictures:



Above is the yellow spot on the screen when it is mounted




The result of sliping my phone....




When i connect these to the phone and leave the phone unassambled there is no yellow spot, but when i put the parts together it appears.


Indeed, the wise thing to do is visit the apple store... but the price of repairing is way to high. I think in the Netherlands it's about $250 -$300.

It looks to me like the screen is under stress, meaning that something is keeping the screen from laying flat without uneven pressure. That's why it works outside the phone. When assembling, make sure that there's nothing slightly out of place, sticking up a little where it would force the screen into a little bit of a twist. I'm not familiar with how these screens are secured, but if there are clamps of some kind be sure that they're snugged with equal pressure. If it happens in the same place each time you assemble it, that's a clue that there may be something that's not right in the way things are put together.

I totally agree with Dave. Also make sure that it is not a problem with the screen itself. I think you should take it to the Genius Bar at the nearest Apple store. Good luck!

Ok, thanks for the reactions.
I take the unit apart again and go see where something pinches.
to be continued...

Another thing, is this an OEM screen? Cheap non OEM screens can give you problems.

Found it !
During the assembly there is a piece of the front camera cable being pinched between the digitizer and LCD screen protection. This caused the yellow spot.
