Lcd or mainboard, which part I should replace it.
Hello, first timer here.
It's gonna be a long story because i do not know what to do.
It was an ordinary day. I've got a message, grabbed the phone, unlock the screen and i was stunned. The screen was blurry, like it wasn't focused at all. And there was a white horizontal line at close to the top of the screen. So first thing i did, i restart the phone. When i turned on the phone, sometimes the screen did show up, and sometimes did not.
So I've sent an email to a guy, who repair Apple products, and he's good at it.
He suggested that i should dry out the phone on radiator the whole night. And then message him back with the results. So i did what he said.
After i came back from work, first thing i tried, i plugged the charger to phone. The phone started to play the sound of connecting the charger. (Ding!). But... It started to repeat the sound constantly with small gaps. Like every 15 sec was the sound played.
I've sent another message to the guy, with the results. He emailed me back that my phone was probably flooded. (it wasn't). Back then, the day was very humid.. Maybe that was the case.
So he said that he can repair the phone, but it's gonna be expensive, because it's probably the mainboard.
A friend at work suggested that it's probably the lcd.
So getting to the end of this long story, are the symptoms telling me that it's lcd or the mainboard? What do you think?
If it's the lcd, I can handle replacing the screen on my own, and the screen with tools are pretty cheap on the market over here.
But if it's the mainboard, then I'm jumping to iPhone 5s.
Thank you for reading this long boring story. Cheers.
Is this a good question?
