Can I fix my logic board (see picture)

Hello,

My iphone 4S fell yesterday and the screen immediately stopped working ( it is not cracked or anything ). My phone still receives messages and phone calls but the screen stays black. I've tried to press the home/lock button but it didn't help.

I opened the phone thinking that the connection between the screen and the logic board might have snapped or something. It was indeed not connected anymore so I was thrilled and thought that I might be able to solve the issue but even after putting everything together, same issue !

Please take a look at the picture of my phone, I think that the logic board got damaged, it's not directly at the connection but next to it, do you think there is any way to fix that ?

tristan15, looks like you knocked of two caps and a filter. If the pads are still okay and the traces are not interrupted, it does stand a chance to be fixable. Better get somebody that knows how to microsolder. Contact jessabethany on here and see if she can fix it for you. Hope this helps, good luck.

All better. One of the filter pads was gone, so I had to just put in a little microjumper to restore continuity in the line. Display is normal. I think this success of this repair is due to the magical healing properties of Tristan's old sock that he carefully enclosed the phone in during transit to New York.
