The weirdest problem ever

A nice lady brought an iPhone 6 in today. Her phone was off, and it would only display the apple logo for about three seconds, then it would "turn off". Except I noticed the display was still on. Opened it up, and sure enough, the backlight was on. So I put it into dfu, and restored. I've seen blue screens, I've seen red screens. Never seen a salmon screen

So restore it a few more times, and then it shows the apple logo, all distorted. Like corrupted data. The phone is now constantly trying to boot itself, and finally does. Just now she emails me, says he phone is back to it old tricks. Shows apple logo, "turns off". Anybody got anything?

Alright. Let's try this again. The salmon phone has returned. I've actually had it the entire time. Nervous about removing the nand safely. I've only done it properly a couple times and am running out of junk boards to practice on. Anybody got any of those? Graveyard boards I could buy at a reasonable price

Maybe a cold solder joint or faulty screen?

I don't think the display is the issue. Cold solder joint could be it?

@theimedic maybe, ask if it was ever left in extreme hot/cold.
