What is wrong with my iPhone? Glitchy lcd

Alright. First it started with touch ic diy i did. Everything worked fine for a week. Then my phone started turning off and it wouldnt turn on for a while even if you plugged it in. Once it came back to life sometimes it would say battery is empty. Then the screen started glitching ( it would lag extremely hard,but when i applied pressure at the top right corner when i seperated the phone and the screen it would work fine). Then i got into a boot loop. I ordered the new screen and i assembeled it today. Did a restore and the screen was pink,really glitchy and the touch screen was unresponsive,washed out colors too and really low pixelated.

Do I understand correctly that you replaced the Touch IC's yourself? Or did you just apply heat to reflow them.

I suspect you applied too much heat when you replaced (or reflowed) the Touch IC's and you are seeing the consequences only now. Perhaps the PMIC was overheated.

i just sticked some ducktape and folded it. there is a video on youtube that describes the process.


Unfortunately, that doesn't really solve the problem. It's sounds like you may have two separate problems; the touch disease and the bootlooping.

You can click on my profile to find a link to my blog post on Touch Disease if you want to learn more. The iPhone 6Plus is well known to suffer from this problem. There is even an official Apple replacement program for this. It's not free but relatively cost effective. Considering you have multiple problems with your phone, this may be the most cost effective solution for you.
