iPhone 6 infinite boot loop after drop, please help!

My iPhone 6 was dropped on the floor, and shortly after began a “boot loop.” It brings up the white apple logo, and after about 7 seconds turns black and begins again.  I’ve tried hard resetting, putting it in DFU mode, and even had my Dad open the phone and check to make sure the connecters were attached correctly. Does anyone one know a possible fix? It won’t restore on iTunes, it just gives me an error after a while and says “iPhone can’t be restored.” Any advice would be amazing, I really need this phone and I’m not in a position financially to get a new one. Any advice is appreciated!

What error number are you getting from iTunes? This could be an important clue.

As RBA8 suggests, this is most likely a logic board issue however lumping all logic board repairs as “pricey” is a bit of an oversimplification. At this point, it will most likely not be a DIY type of repair so you’ll have to consider if you want to pay someone to fix your iPhone 6 or if you are going to apply that money towards a replacement phone.

I would look around in your area to see if anyone offers micro-soldering repairs and ask them to give you an estimate. Then decide if you need or want to get the phone repaired (i.e. you may need the data if you don’t have a backup). Most shops offer a no fix no fee model so if the repair is unsuccessful, it won’t cost you anything but your time.

It’s most likely a board level repair. There are some places that can do it for you but they are really pricey.

Thank you, I've read online that it could mean my battery is disconnected, but I really don't know.

You could try to open the phone up again and unplug the battery connector and then reconnect it find a guide on ifixits website. Good luck. Let me know if that works
