Dead phone after housing change

Changed iphone 5 housing a few times without a problem. The last 3 i have done havnt worked out so great, they now wont power on. I have tried multiple screens and batteries, put the boards in working phones, tried working boards in the new housing and nothing works. My questions are has anyone else had the same problem or does anyone know any common faults with a housing change.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Are you grounding yourself? This could be a static issue. I would also look at these logic boards under a microscope and see if you're damaging any resistors.

How do I combat static? Will check over the boards again tonight.


As Techygirl says: ground yourself. There are many product online which will help you do this.


Something like this on ebay is what we use in my shop, it grounds you & the mat you're working on. Very important when working on electronic devices.
