Title:

iPhone 4s missing grounding clips, 50% of screws.

Text:

And this, my friends, is why you let a professional fix your electronics.

Let me give you all a bit of backstory;

Guy came in a bit ago, complained that his Iphone screen cracked and wants me to replace it. OK, no big deal, I have an extra spare screen ready to go. He said he broke it once before and had one of his buddies fix it. So I open it up, and notice that the pressure contact near the battery is gone. I go further down the rabbit hole, and discover that half the screws on the cable cover are gone. Also, ALL of the small metal grounding clips are gone, numerous screws in, on and around the motherboard are gone, and the 6 screws on the side that fasten the screen.

Brothers, is there any hope for this lost phone?
