Is it a long screw damage?


Yesterday i replaced a screen on a iPhone 6 and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Then, when putting on the LCD bracket, i accidentally put the little longer screw from the top left in the middle hole. After that the iPhone turned on and i can see the apple logo, but it never came to the lock screen. Then i tried to restore it on iTunes, and iTunes would gladly restore it and the restore finished on iTunes but has never finished on the iPhone. The progress bar moved all the way to done, but is like 0,1% before done and is now stucked there.

My question is: Is this a typical long screw damage? And is their any fix?

Thank you

Little longer? You mean the top left?


Can you get a microscope and post a picture of inside the small hole?

The center screw hole has one trace underneath it, PP1V8. It's used for powering the NAND and CPU among other IC's. So certainly, yes, this is certainly Long-Screw Damage. This is one of the easier ones to fix as it is only one large(ish) trace.

You will need to find a reputable micro-solderer to do this fix. There are a few who contribute on this forum.
