Joker that tried to tell me how to fix it now lost the plate. I took an old 5s and used the plate for the home ribbon connection out of the old phone. Now I see why it was “mysteriously” missing. It was missing because whatever’s he did to that area, now no plate from any 5s phones work there.
The home button works, no Touch ID, but worst of all, no screen touch whatsoever now. For a brief moment in time there, I had it all working. He was going to show me some tip or something and caught his finger on the ribbon connector attached to the home button. But, it wasn’t a rugged injury at all. It didn’t sever it in any way. Right then I lost screen touch, and Touch ID capability, but home button is in tact. I can’t do much else because I can’t punch in the pin code to the phone because it doesn’t recognize any touch.
Anyway, if I get all of this worked out I’m just concerned now because of all of his “adjustments” since the slip of the finger now a bracket won’t even fit over that part. I just didn’t know if it was pertinent to operations or just to secure to ribbon in place? Any light that anyone may have to bear on the subject would be most appreciated! Thank you so much!
