Can you tell me if my touch ic is broken or lcd...(asap)?read

so i dropped my iphone from waist height accidentally and it was working fine... until i noticed a fade blue spot on my screen. everything worked fine for about a week and one morning all of a sudden my screen wasnt responding to my touch, it wasnt sliding and often freezing once inside. i opened it up then removed the ribbon cables, then reattached it, it worked fine for about a couple of hours then the same problem appeared. so i noticed if i applyed pressure on the screen top right it would work, until the screen turns off, then it becomes unresponsive. I opened it up again and i seen a video saying that it might be the logic board, it told me to bend my phone forward, as i did so. i bent it while my screen was on and off (about 6 times). now my screen doesnt work at all and theres gay bars horizontal on it. i wanted to know is the screen lcd broken (ribbon cable or inside) or did i break the logic board where the ribbon attach? help because i am phoneless and i dont want to waste money on a lcd that may not be the problem!!!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Unfortunately you've followed some horrible advice. Bending a device on purpose is likely to only cause board damage. Its possible the issue was the LCD, but chances are you now have board damage anyway. You would be best to mail the device to someone for assessment so they can A) try another LCD, and B) diagnose any possible board issues. This way you arent spending money on a new LCD to find there is something else going on. There are some experienced techs who can help you over at the board repair info website linked on my profile

If you have grey bar on top then it's touch IC at fault. If you don't then the touch IC isn't at fault and it's probably your LCD.

Bending it will not fix the problem for touch IC issues. It will only make it worse by that I means if it even temporarily fixes it. It'll just get worse quickly until you can't even use the touh screen anymore.
