Hi Brian,

A couple of questions.

- Does it do the same with the old screen? And if so, did it do it before (if there is a good way to ask the customer?)

- When you say it turns itself off, does it mean the screen just goes to sleep or does the phone actually shuts down?

I had this problem when my replacement screen was rejected by device. Try other screens!

Sometimes a faulty screen can cause this. I've had it happen before on a iPhone 5C.
