iPhone doesn't work after repairing front panel and rear panel


i got the same problem but it is was my own iphone before (definately no fluid damage or something like that) and it worked before I opened it. After having changed the rear panel and the front panel because both was broken ot worked once. I then opened it again because the camera wasn't set properly and after that it didn't work anymore. I was very carefull not to damage anything inside.

the name looks a little bit german to me. hard to tell whats wrong with it - i can't see dead devices in my crystal ball (kiddin) - it could be anything. if you were carefull and didn't break anything - it could be anything. but please start a new question for that - it youl be easier to handle

Ok, openend a new question. The name itself is russian but I'm german, that's correct.

Update: I plugged it into my computer and after about one minute the screen shows vertical black stripes at first very weak but becoming stronger after a while. The battery was only at 10 % when I turned it on the last time. Was it the battery's death?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

i know that it's a russian name, but the spelling would most likely be different. aber das macht nix, manche namen fallen einfach auf ;-)


Ja, "Weiher" ist ja auch nicht grade unauffällig in 'nem englischsprachigen Forum...

i'll try to explain it.

the battery could have been shorted during the disassembling/reassembling process.

that would mean that the battery can "play" dead.

the vertical black stripes are not that good - i think that the lcd is faulty or the connection is pretty bad

there are not that many options - check the connectors, make a hard reset or restore it with itunes

i would check the connectors and maybe reset the phone.

The connectors are looking fine and sitting propperly (it clicks hearable when connecting or disconnecting). But I will have a closer look again with a magnifying glass.

The lcd was fine until now and I never had any problems with it. At least with a faulty lcd the sound should be hearable when charging it, shouldn't it?

The hard reset dooesn't work and itunes won't recognize it.


connector 4 is ok? (thats the one for the dock connector, speakers and so on)


Yes, also connector 4 looks pretty good.


i would charge it overnight and try to start it "tomorrow" - checking everything with a good magnifier is one of the last options - everything else goes most likely to far - you can always send an email: - it's bedtime, i'll be back in around 4hrs


Thanks, I will try to charge over night. Then sleep well.
