The iPhone 6S is particularly sensitive to that mistake. In all likelihood, you blew the backlight filter and possibly even the entire backlight circuit. Either way, this will require a micro-soldering repair and it is not a DIY repair.

Is there anything else I can try?


Unless you have the right tools and skills, anything you try will only damage the board further.


Ok, thank you for the help!
