dropped all works but the screen/touchscreen. Tried a new screen

Hi Rany. Your description sounds like the issue i have.

iPhone 5c dropped all works but the screen/touchscreen. Tried a new screen but no luck.

How can I check if its the backlight issue? (but lack of response from touchscreen makes me believe there is more to it)

Kind Regards

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Before going crazy with diagnostics, try this, disconnect battery for a few moments and then reconnect it.


Actually cleaning and reseating fixed it for him.

Hi Daniel,

So your phone doesn't show an image/or backlight AND touch is not working? Are you sure it is a drop, not liquid damage? Back light, image, and touch are 3 different functions with somewhat different "circuits" on the board. They may both be damaged, but more often it is just one of the 2. I'd start with the following:

- There are 3 screen connectors on the board. Clean them with a cotton swab dipped in 90%+ isopropyl alcohol. Then try reseating your screen and re-booting your iPhone (press & hold home + power buttons for ~12 seconds straight then restart your phone).

- If no change, remove the black film (very carefully) around those connectors on the board and look under a magnifying glass for missing/broken/part removed components.

- If you see nothing wrong, try a KNOWN GOOD display, something that you know for sure works on a different device. OR transfer your logic board to a known good phone. Let us know what you find out at this point.
