iPhone 5C Screen turns on but it is black. Damaged components.


I bought damaged iPhone 5C recently. The seller told me that it did not power up and screen was replaced before. I managed to fix power up problem, however, I encountered other problems related to display. At very beginning iPhone LCD only showed dark screen. Do not get wrong, it could see that display itself works and backlight coil is not damaged as display showed some kind of color. Later on I have noticed that there are two missing components below LCD connector and I assumed that is the problem as when I was checking the screen started to work and disappear again. I wonder if anyone could tell what those components are and where are they located as I have been trying go find schematics of iPhone 5C online and I couldn't. I am adding a picture of components location.

Also, I decided to give one more chance connecting display and found that it works right now (by some kind of miracle which currently is not understandable to me) but I have problem as digitizer does not respond to touch (could it be display problem itself?). Also, the other problem is some kind of squares I can see (picture below) which I assume could be because of missing components? Can anyone clarify this information? There is a picture of iPhone display.

Thank you for your help! It is appreciated.


As requested I am adding picture of missing components. Thank you.

There are a total of 16 components under there. It will help tremendously if you get a better picture of which once you are looking at. Yes absolutely possibly that this is caused by missing filters etc.

buyingfaultyiphones, looks like you are only missing one. That is reference designator FL27 which is a 120ohm 210 mA filter in a 1005 package.

Thanks for the answer. By any chance, do you know where I can order it from?


thank you for accepting my answer. The part is available at places like this. Please remember the size of a 1005 package is 0.016" L x 0.008" W which is very very difficult to solder unless you have the right tools.


Thank you for your help a lot!
