Screen flashes red when trying to recover with iTunes 4013/4014 error

When i boot up the iPhone 6 Plus I get the message to connect the iphone to itunes. I've tried recovering it with itunes but get the error codes 4013 and 4014.

Sometimes when recovering with iTunes the iphone flashes a red screen before rebooting again to an apple logo and then again: connect to itunes screen.

I've read some possible fixes on this forum: to remove the camera connector from the motherboard and starting up. I have done this (removed front facing camera and the main camera) but with no luck. I have the same red screen flash as before.

What could i do to fix this problem and have a working iphone again?

More information:

  1. Inside a few screws were missing (5 or 6)
  2. The waterdamage strips didnt recolour so no water damage as far as i see
Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

it could be long screw damage or it could be the frontal camera. I check that out first though to see if there is any structural damage to the logic board

Which one do i check out first? The frontal camera or for long screw damage? Should I just disconnect it and try to boot up again or should I order a new one.

I have tried to disconnect the frontal camera from the motherboard before and try to restore it again but the results were the same (not booting, red flash).

maybe there are some problem in the connection between your iPhone and PC, which cause you coun't recover your deleted data through iTunes. so how about trying to use a data recovery toolkit, such as iPhone data recovery, to assist to deal with this problem. if you could connect your iPhone to PC wiith USB, so you could recover your data. Actually, I also have suffered the same problems before, but luckily, I had got my deleted data back.

Read the following article to get more details about this method if you need. I hope it will work for you, too, and you could successfully. Good luck to you.
