Why is my iPhone not switching on and not getting charged?

For once i tried to remove my display by myself and place it back and i did it quite successfully but after that came the problem. I was not able to switch on my device and when i connected to charger it displayed that the battery was charging and then the apple logo came up then sometimes red color flashed up and sometime blue color flashed up but most of the time with out any thing happening it went back to showing battery charging symbol then apple logo, it continued as a loop. I was not even able to enter DFU mode. After this incident in did not use my phone for past one weak, Now when i connected my phone to charger it switched on and went into DFU mode but when i tried to restore the device by connecting to itunes i showed error code"2009"

and so i was not able to restore my iphone and stays switched off.

Red screen, blue screen, boot looping...

Those are symptoms of long-screw damage. Considering it happened shortly after you replaced your screen, there is a high probability that is your problem.

If you mix up the screws when replacing the front panel bracket (see the linked image) by putting the bottom left one (circled in yellow) in the bottom right (circled in orange), then you can damage the copper traces that run underneath the standoff.

There is only 0.1mm difference between the two so it is very easy to mistake them. This is a complex repair that can only be done by a qualified repair shop that can do micro-soldering repairs.

long story short- you just killed your iphone with a stupid mistake :)


Hi @fuza, did you take a look at how your phone was assembled to see if the screws are mismatched? Does your phone work now or is it still the same?
