My iPhone wont turn on

I got this problem on my phone where I can only see the signal , time and battery percentage on my screen and the rest of the screen was black but it was still functional I can swipe I can unlock it my passcode.

at first I thought that the LCD digitizer was just dislodge from the logic board bec. I dropped it several times so I tried opening and cleaning it. but when I tried to put it back on the screen went completely black but its still working I tried calling it ... its still ringing. then I press the home and sleep button thought doing a reset would fix it but nooooo... when I tried powering it back on..

it will display two horizontal lines then it disappear.. aaaannndd now it wont turn on..

can someone tell me did I damage the logic board? what would you suggest to fix it?

Is the screen cracked?

Did the phone get into contact with liquid then stopped working?

Is the glass of the screen pushing up anywhere on the edges of the screen especially top right or top left?

Did this suddenly happen out of nowhere?

Anyway it sounds like the screen needs to be replaced as the damage probably accumulated from dropping it multiple times caused it to fail.

no there were no crack..

no it didn't get wet.

when I press from middle of my screen its springing

well the earlier issue on my phone was there were white vertical lines then sometimes red.. then one night that I'm using it the screen went black all I can see was the signal time and battery percentage


Might be a good idea to get the phone opened using the guide as an assist to see if the battery has bloated.

From what you've said it sounds like the screen assembly has gotten pretty loose from its frame holding the screen.

Most likely screen damaged from being separated as the more it pushes up the higher the chance the display cables for the screen getting pulled or teared.

This is a very common case for iPhone 5C for example as replacement screens can pop out at the top right.

You may be lucky and get away with replugging the screen cables temporarily.


yea the screen is loose..

I'm pretty sure there were no problems on the battery I already replaced it with a new one.

okay ill try bringing it to a repair shop to test if only the lcd is the only one needed to be replaced

thanks ben :)


You're welcome. :)
