Are my screen/battery issues fixable?

After a hard fall onto its back, my iPhone 6 screen has a halo around the edge -- and the darker parts of any screen image slowly fades to its opposite color. These color bars run long ways. In addition, every 30-45 seconds a wavy still image of what's on the screen slowly rises from the home button end -- even when the screen is in landscape mode. Locking and unlocking the phone immediately fixes this issue, but then is 30-45 seconds it happens again.

I ordered a new screen and decided to switch out the battery too. I'm glad I did. First, my phone started going from 100% to shutting down in about 30 minutes. Last night, my phone had been on the charger all evening yet it showed the low battery charging image. This morning, it still shows the same, like it no longer takes a charge at all.

My question is this -- are these issues that will be fixed by switching out the battery and screen, or is there something deeper going on that is unfixable?

With so much going wrong over the last week, I worry that it is more than just a simple repair -- and if so, I would much rather returned the unopened items for a refund and cut my losses before I install them only to see little to no improvement.

Thank you all for your help!

I'm not sure what was confusing about the post, but yes -- I bought quality replacements here on

I merely wanted to know if the described problems sounded like they would be fixed by replacing said items. Thank you for your reply.


Maybe I'm just tired from rising. But you didn't explain if you'd already put them on. Also, I don't know why you're responding to your own question. iFixit has an incredible warranty program, if for some reason you've damaged your phone too badly they would honor the return of good undamaged product
