Touch ic problems iPhone 6plus

So i got a iPhone 6 plus today with the grey bar on top indicating that the touch ic was going bad, or not soldered well. i have replaced the cumulus chip and now i have no grey bar, but the touch is a little less responsive near the letter U if you were texting. or trying to slide backlight brighter 3/4 of the way it stops.

Do you think this is a problem with the chip i replaced or is this caused by the mason chip?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Is the screen that is on the phone right now have any signs of physical damage at all?

Screen could possibly been replaced. It is known to happen that the Touch ID will stop working once a screen is replaced. Part of the deal made when the lawsuit happened over Error 53 (source: TechCrunch).

The reason the Touch ID isn't working after the screen replacement is only because of two reasons;

1. the home button was damaged during the repair.

2. the home button flex cable was damaged during the repair.

I saw it happened only was when the Touch ID stopped working after a repair for no reason on an iPhone 5S and after I reset all the settings (in settings) it was fully working again.

first of all try to install a new screen to see if it helps. there is no harm in trying a new screen.

if it didn't help any, try re-soldering the chip back in the place, maybe you missed something while soldering the IC. if yet it's not solved then I think it safe enough to say that It is indeed the touch IC.
