Logo screen and them it turns black?

So two weeks ago I dropped my phone and the screen popped out. I popped it back in and the screen was still visible on some parts, others were black and colorful. But after that, I kept opening and closing the screen to see if it'd work better but the visible parts were just getting eaten up by the black and colorful parts. And soon, the screen wouldn't really turn on anymore.

My dad ordered a new screen along with a new battery and wifi anetenna, because since I bought this phone on Craigslist, the battery and the wifi antenna weren't the best.

We watched a turtorial on Youtube on how to fix the antenna, and we followed every step and put the new parts in. The screen turns on, but it only shows the apple logo. It's also slightly gray. After four-five seconds, it goes black-lit. We charged it and it kept doing it again, but it wouldn't fully turn on.

What do I do?

Yep, it's boot looping. either you need a new battery, or you'll need to put it into dfu and restore to a backup. If you dfu restore to a backup, you'll lose everything. But if it isn't the battery, that'll be the only option

Plug your device into your computer with a USB cable.

Turn off the device.

Hold the Power button for 3 seconds.

Hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds.

Release the Power button but keep holding the Home button.

EDIT: Here is a guide and parts list for the battery. Honestly though, it's really starting to sound like the tristar. Again, microsoldering not for beginners. Also likely your aftermarket charger that did this. Your iPhone needs an original apple charger, and it's the block, not the cord, that's the important part

I did that, and it worked. I then backed up my phone, and everything was good again. But suddenly, yesterday, it did the same thing. The apple logo appeared, and it went black-lit. I held the power and home button for 10 seconds, and the home screen appeared. It worked for like 3 minutes before shutting off again. I tried doing it again but it wouldn't work anymore. Please help I'm desperate


Did you try the new battery? could just be a faulty battery


This really sounds like a defective battery to me. I would replace the battery again, and see if it powers on properly.


Either it's the battery or it's the tristar. Microsoldering, not for beginners. I'll modify my answer with parts and guides for the battery
