iPhone 5s not booting after battery replacement & a whack
Firstly, many thanks for clicking on this and reading my message. I really appreciate it.
Unfortunately, I've had no luck fixing an iphone 5s. A friend gave it to me, having failed to fix it. Apparently, he changed the battery and all was well for 48 hours until he bashed the phone on a door frame while it was in his pocket. It stopped working. When I plug it it, nothing happens. I've checked all the connections and none are loose.
My only ideas are,
a) the 'foam pad' on the LCD ribbon cable connector is damaged, needs replaced??
b) the screws from the metal bracket screen have been put back in the wrong order (I think they are different sizes?)
c) there is no foam pad on the battery latch
d) there is no foam pad on the ribbon for the fingerprint reader. I can't tell if there was never a foam pad here or if it has been worn off (my friend did mention that he had taken this phone apart and put it back together a number of times)
e) or maybe, even though the battery is new, I should try a new battery?
Do you think any of these things are causing my problem?
Thank you so much for reading this far, Gavin.
Is this a good question?
