White screen after repair
I had someone bring me an iPhone 3GS they had attempted to take apart (to replace the glass) by prying apart the chrome bezel from the back case. Needless to say, they broke several components in the process. I had to replace the dock connector assembly, the power/headjack/
When I power it on, I never get the apple logo, and it goes right to a white screen. If I hit the power/lock button it will go black screen. Hit it again and white screen. The mute toggle works (phone will vibrate), and iTunes recognizes the iPhone just fine. Holding home button will bring up voice control. I have tried swiping the digitizer screen to see if I can get some sort of audible response, but no luck. I have tried multiple new LCD and digitizer's, and same symptoms.
I have even restored the firmware 3 times, no luck. Can anyone help?
when someone has taken no care or paid any attention to the help guides that are free all over the www it's a wonder anything works at all. well done to you for getting it to this stage. I'd imagine that in prising apart the display they have either levered on a component or they have damaged the LCD connector/path in someway. you need to examine the connections and then follow the path looking for fractures in the gold wiring of the motherboard (which you can then solder/jump) or use a infrared thermometer to isolate the non working component. my guess is connector 1 is slightly off the board or pin bent so that only some of the pins are in contact with the motherboard.
