Touchscreen freezes after fall


I own a small repair shop in Amsterdam and recently I came across several iphone 6 with the following issue:

Customer dropped the phone the screen is broken and in some cases not but it freezes and becomes unresponsive after short while after start. It might be completely operational for a few minute at some point it just gets stuck. The phone doesnt get hot or anything.

My assumption is that something gets damaged on the logic board because of the shatter damage from the fall but I didn't find a way to test it.

New screens are 100% working because if I use them on another iphone 6, no problem.

Did anyone else have this same issue? Any possible solution or just a waste of time?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have the same problem

after you change the screen, parts iFixit, my phone works perfectly, but after 5 or 10 minutes of waking up the phone reacts. Long press on a button "home + power" and reboot normally my phone all over again

I have this problem as well, any solutions? Soft reset doesn't help. Factory reset and set up as new phone doesn't help. Cleaning connectors with iso alcohol didn't help.

Software updated normally. I've tried several known working screens but they only function for a few minutes before freezing and not always working from boot up.

Add a comment my case anyway. Long screws in wrong holes on connector shield. Trace damage on mobo to centre and bottom right screw holes.
