Helping friends fix their electronics, without robbing...
Thanks for the reply Jeff. I rechecked everything....even the pins. The display is actually defective. I charged it up and powered it on to see the full display. On the left side there is a crack under the screen....Like inside the digitizer itself. It bubbles out like the screen is busted and seems the white lines are like a domino effect from that. Must have happened at the warehouse. The shipping box had no damage and neither did the screen itself. Was the first defective product I've gotten from Ifixit....So it was a surprise. Hopefully they will swap them out so I can finish this iPhone. Thanks again for the reply.
So step 17 with the display cable. I have reconnected it and power cycled 5 times. Still the same result with the white lines. Does the connector come loose that easily? All of them are snapping into place. Any suggestions or have I ruined the screen?
