Pins Under Digitizer Bent/ scraped off

Hello, I’m afraid something may be screwed up on an iPhone 6S Plus I am working on. I belive that this is the second time the screen needed replaced on this specific phone- the first time I am doing it though. The pins right beneath the digitizer seem to be scraped away from something- I noticed this after I tried to install the new display, and then I tried the first display. The first display did work before I removed it. The photo I included isn’t exactally the best. Is there anything I can do?

It looks like the connectors for the digitizer are fine on the logic board, have you tried plugging a screen in?

I have tried 3 screens- each produces video, just no capacitive touch. My fear is that I peeled some adhesive from around the digitizer connector and now the pins seem to be missing. I would try to get a better photo but I’m not sure I can with this iPhone.


Oh, the adhesive isn't the issue here. You have knocked a bunch of small SMD components right under the digitizer connector.

Micro-soldering is required to fix this here. Maybe you will find someone that does micro soldering in your area to replace the missing or damaged components.


Okay thanks for your help!
