After removing Emi shields and water damage cleaning process, the screen won’t respond to touch. You can see everything normal except the screen kind of flickers. The screen is in working condition it was tested on a different phone and has no issues. Already restored the phone updated and did a reset as well. Also got an error message from iTunes.

Next step would be replacing the digitizer fpc connector. I'm guessing you have the equipment, if you've removed the emi shields?

okay i never did microsolder but i guess is time to get my feet wet.


just in case do you know how much a repair of this kind can cost? to replace an fpc connector?


I charge $90 but I noticed prices are based off your area


i paid less for the phone so its not worth me fixing it. I think im just going to hold it for parts or something
