PCB Board Problem, according to a technician. What should I do?

My iPhone 6 fell a few times. One time it fell, and the LCD Screen got separated with the Rear Body, not totally tho of course, but you can imagine how right? so I put it back together (pressed it until there's click sound) and it works well. Later on, it fell again, I'm quite clumsy tho, so it happened again with the LCD Screen and I did it again, then I noticed some screws are not there, but I got it fixed.

I sent to a technician, and he said, "PCB Problem". He was not that convincing when I asked what will he do and he said " just repair, and it'll take time".

So, I am wondering:

1) PCB Board is the Logic Board. What is the main problem? is it the whole logic board problem? what should I do?

2) I am thinking of repairing my self, not the Logic Board as I don't have any experience but I am thinking of changing the Antenna(s) I/e: Network(Cellular), Wi-fi, Bluetooth, and whatever there is related to the Antenna(s). Also, I am thinking of changing the LCD Screen ( the whole thing, digitiser etc) as my iPhone6 have problem with connecting with those mentioned above.

3) Would all those mentioned above, help and make the phone better?

Guys, help me out. Appreciate it!

It's hard to help you if you don't tell what is the problem with your phone. It fell a few times, sure and the screen popped out. But what was the problem with the phone when the tech told you the logic board had issues?

Changing antennas and screens won't help much unless you have can make reasonable assumptions about what the problem is. Tell us more so we can help.

Right. Here it is :

1) When start, Apple Logo appeared. Vibrated, then, the logo appeared again until it goes flat. ( Sometimes it can start normally).

2) When it's at normal state, The Wifi, Bluetooth, and Cellular(Inc 3G/4G) network is not at 100%. For instance, the wifi. it could not detect any near network to connect. But known networks is ok.

3) Phone get really hot.

I am wondering, it is because of PCB board (it is the logic board right?) other functions can't work at100%?

The phone getting hot is the giveaway. Yes, you have a logic board problem and unfortunately, it's not easy to identify just based on this exchange. It will have to be looked at by an experienced micro-solderer.

Alright. I am trying to save cost as much as possible so I can get some good parts & tools from iFixit.com.

Since I have a feeling that most of the technician here in my place are " technically technician", which I think they only have a basic knowledge of doubt. if I were to pay a thousand or over that amount, that'll be a lost in cost. well, an iPhone X here in Malaysia cost about MYR 4,000 = USD 970.00.

But Minho, I agree with you, I wouldn't be able to fix the iPhone 6 myself. But I will go to a apple service centre to re confirm the fault on the phone.

iPhone5 is small, and starting to get slower and slower. heh.
