After display change, phone taks on a life of its own

Hi there.

I have changed the display on my iPhone 6, and after I have done that, many not good things happen.

Very often the display is unresponsive. And it takes on a life of its own.

It opens apps, types words, chuffles the playlist, calls a random person.

No patterns at all. Things just happen.

I have gotten a replacement display, this happened. The seller sent me another, and this time its even worse.

Do anyone have any suggestions to this problem?

First. Make sure your frame don't have any damages that could cause weird pressures on the screen, I've seen this quite often that a bended, broken or hardly dented frame was causing ghost-touching on the iPhone.

Second, make sure you haven't over tighten the display assembly shield screws and that it is not pressing on the LCD mirror under the screen.

Third, Make sure the flex cables are bent correctly, if the flex cable are damage, wrongy bent and/or super cheap, tons of problem could show up and you wouldn't be able to recognized them.

Last, the connectors. Make sure both the cables' connectors and the logic board connectors aren't broken, damaged or disturbed by any foreign material.

That also could be ESD damage if you haven't use ESD precautions while opening the phone.

Good luck!
