Long Screw Damage! New Logicboard?

Hi Guys,

Recently I tried changing a new screen of my iPhone 5s 64GB Gold,

The problem is I felt in the trap of Long Screws damage when screwing over the metal plate in place.

Will buying and replacing the logic board (or motherboard) help me?

Please help me guys.

Thanks in advance

Why you would think that it is damaged? Does it get stuck on apple logo? Does it give you error (9) or (27) message?

chaythem, yes replacing the board will fix that. You can also try and have somebody rebuild the traces damaged by the long screw. Post an image with your question so one can evaluate the damage.

Thanks for replying,

I don't have a microscope or a magnifying glass to take a picture of the damage :(

Is there any other solution beside changing the logic board?

Thanks again :)

Rebuilding the traces might be possible, depending on the damage. for that you will need to have a good magnifying source, decent soldering station and plenty of skill. Otherwise you may consider finding someone who does that kind of work.

@ueuezaza depends on how bad the damage is and where you are located.
