Line on screen after LCD replacement

Block Image

Block Image

Since replacing my iPhone XR screen i’ve had this black (sometimes white) line appear when pressure is applied to the bottom right corner of the screen. If i separate the screen and phone with a layer of electrical tape the issue doesn’t occur. I assume this is some sort of electrical interference but cant seem to isolate what is causing it.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated :)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There are two possibilities here; either the replacement screen is defective or you may have incorrectly assembled the screen.

If you still have access to the original screen, you could try installing that one to see if the problem persists. If it does, there may be some damage to the logic board (probably the connectors). If it doesn’t, the go through this guide to double-check your work as some screens, especially lower cost aftermarket screens can be thicker and cause issues with pressure points.

Also, was the replacement screen a “complete” screen with small parts or did you have to transfer everything over? Pre-populated parts can be problematic but transferring parts can lead to alignment issues. Do some more testing and verification and come back with more details.

Final question, is the picture of the phone innards your device or a photo from the web? It has an awful lot of scratches, markings and the battery looks like it has seen better days. Let us know if the phone has been previously repaired.

I think you need to try reconnecting the display to the phone. True, for this you will need answers and little experience in repairing such devices. Although it seems to me that it’s best for you to turn to the master who replaced the screen for you.

Most likely it’s nothing than a damaged screen, thos line are normal for damaged screen, the reconection with motherboard will chang nothing, or there is possibility of cracked pin in phone connector, but this thing is the best check on another lcd.
