Why won't my screen work?

Today I replaced a screen on an iPhone 6 I had bought. When I got it, it would buzz when I plugged it in and iTunes recognized it. However, even after replacing the screen, it still wouldn't show anything. I have checked that the cables are in the right spots, and they are. I have tried almost everything.

Is this a good question?

Sounds like you have a defective iPhone LCD on your hands. Did you try another screen to see if it was indeed the LCD? Shine a light on the display to see if there is an image, it could also be your back-light fuse.


Xander Loseke did you disconnect the battery before replacing the display?

Good suggestions in the comments.

As Anthony mentions, it is either a bad replacement LCD or the backlight circuit was damaged on the logic board. One easy way to find out is to re-install the original, cracked LCD. If that works well, then you have a defective replacement. If the original no longer works, then plug it into the computer and shine a bright flashlight. If you see a dim image, then the backlight circuit is at fault. If you don't see an image, the the LCD driver circuit could be at fault. Those two scenarios require a micro=soldering repair and is not DIY.

Hopefully it's just a bad LCD.

I see a dim image. I'm looking at ways to fix it. Do you know any cheap places to get it fixed?


Sorry, I don't know any cheap places. Micro-soldering shouldn't be cheap; you want a professional doing it.
