Wi-fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Rear Cam, and Flash Disabled - Board Issue -
Wi-Fi appears grayed out.
Bluetooth appears with an indefinite circling icon.
Camera starts as a black screen. Switching from front to rear will then show a warning sign on the top left corner.
Flashlight will not turn on. Clicking the flashlight button automatically moves it back to off. Sometimes the phone displays a message that it needs to cool down before turning it on.
GPS does not pinpoint an accurate location. It doesn’t get too far, but never right.
Certain operations on the phone cause it to have trouble booting. For instance: I once entered DFU mode and the phone would sometimes freeze on the apple logo or distort its screen and then restart. This has also happened when I tried to test another screen on it or replacing the GPS antenna and the rear camera(to no avail). Once the phone reboots once or twice after a procedure like this, it seems to remain stable, even if turned off and on.
I suppose I should mention I don’t know how the phone came to be this way. I bought it in a worthwhile gamble with the screen smashed. The phone is at iOS 9.1. I would prefer not to have it updated nor do I really believe it would fix anything, as has been in the past.
Clearly, a board issue, and having no experience working on these, I thought I’d take it to someone specialized in them. Still, this being a site were we work together to get any kind of repair done ourselves, I thought I would ask here for any input on the problems, and if there’s anything I could do or learn on my part.
Is this a good question?
