No Backlight after Screen Replacement
I've been repairing iPhones for a while - stand at around 215 successful to date. HOWEVER, today I've received an iPhone 6s in need of a screen replacement.
The phone worked with the cracked screen. I installed my new screen without transferring the front camera & home button to test, and it worked fine.
After transferring everything I closed up and BOOM the phone display stays black. Later I found that the phone is on, and if I shine on it with a torch I can see the display.
For the first time I read about "long screw damage"? I am 100% certain my screws went into the right holes. What I did not do: was remove the battery before repair. I've never done this and never had an issue.
Anyhow: what are my options to repair? I cannot do board level repairs. I bought the customer a new phone, but am trying to minimise my losses by fixing the old phone.
I live in South-Africa and cannot find any repairers close to me?
Is this a good question?
