home, lock button failure, gsm module failure after screen replacement

hi!

i replaced the screen of my iphone 5 and did it really gently, so i didn't damage anything inside. But after the replacement the home, lock buttons stopped working and also there was no gsm signal. telephone is constantly in recovery mode, but it is possible to bring it from this mode using tinyumbrella, for example. i brought my phone to the best repairment center in town and after 2 days of inspection they said that they couldn't help. they didn't find any damage inside, they tried to change all buttons new screen but it didn't work either. telephone doesn't work also with old cracked screen, but it worked before i changed it. So i would be glad if someone help me, or give me a contact of a person who knows how to fox the phone :)

Hi Sergei,

This is classic pry damage from prying the battery on the logic board side, I see it every day.

I fix mail in iPhone 5 pry damage constantly, including International phones. We can restore your home and power button function, guaranteed.

I'm worried about your searching no signal problem though. Look very closely at the glass chip located on the edge of the board just under the SIM tray---if there is a slight crack or chip on this chip caused by a slipped screwdriver on the nearby screw hole, then this could be the source of your searching no signal--I've seen that twice.

First, however, rule out common causes of searching no signal like date/time problem.

I will post a link to my pry damage repair service so that you can inspect your phone to see if it matches the damage in the pictures.
