i have replaced battery on iphone 4s, 6 and 6s plus previously, all with no issues. also replaced the whole screen assembly on iphone 6 which was much trickier than this, never had any problems before.
i thought the process had gone very well but when i put the screen back together i get vertical lines and no touch ID functionality. i was doing this for a friend so it really sucks.
i have tried EVERYTHING going back over my steps five of six times to make sure everything is right, the third cable at the top is definitely connected properly, all screw and brackets in place. and i’ve also been through with a clean little brush to clean all the connections etc. no luck!
VERY Frustrating :(
by far the easiest repair I've done. only 3 screws! really dont think the cables need to be disconneted. i just used a shoe lace to gently hold up the screen. sticky strips came out fine. happy. thanks.
so few comments on this one?!
has any/many done this without the adhesive strips.. and was it ok?
its a tricky job. do it in the morning with full energy and daylight!
my hand got shaky and my eyes got blurry one hour in.
wow this was tricky. i recommend you do this in the beginning of the day with full daylight and patience!
my hand started shanking and my eyes went blurry after one hour. that didn't help!
i replaced the wifi/gps/bluetooth flex ribbon cable just last month so was feeling confident going in.. its not for the light hearted. you can do it but allow several hours
i though the part i'd received was wrong as i couldn't get the digitiser connector and the three other connectors reconnected.. on the right of the front facing camera.. then i realised i had them in the wrong order, after i'd stuffed around with them for ages.
good luck everyone!
