Only Wifi greyed out, what can it be.

Hey guys,

Ive got an iphone 6, i think it has a small water issue. So that it wont turn on,

After cleaning it starts normaly and everythink work quite fine.

But the only think wich not working is the wifi. The Symbol greyed out, and only the wifi symbol, bluetooth works.

Have you an idea what i can do before i have to change the chip? Are there messuring points or sth like that?

Best regards

Hi @freddred, Under the phone, Settings, General, About,

Do you See and Wi-Fi Address in it?


hey, no I don't see a wifi Adress in the info screen there is behind wifi n.v.


Hi there , Freddred!

Soldering is not my expertize, but there are many people here who can.. So, I’d expect an answer super quick!

Glad to see that the antenna was the answer but sad that one capacitator fell off.

@freddred ,

It sounds like you knocked off the C5202_RF which is PP_VCC_MAIN Cap

Gently clean up the underfill that surrounds it, add a bit of flux, clean pads and put it back... should be an easy repair

Good Luck!
