No service after repair.
I replaced the screen on my iphone 3gs a few days ago. Reassembled and now I have No service and no sound. Everything else works fine, including wi-fi. I tried resetting the network setting and I will get 1 bar of signal for all of 1 minute before it goes back to no service. I also checked the two metal tips which are both touching the metal case and there doesnt seem to be any damage on the board by the do not remove sticker. All my connections are good also. I am at a loss. The phone is still under warrenty but while I had it tore down I decided to paint the shell so I would assume that voids the warrenty. Any ideas or is it a lost cause?
Sanded the paint off and still nothing. Reset network settings and same 1 bar then no service. It wont hold a date and time either, I set the date and time restart and it is back to dec 31 1969. I am at a loss and at this point am seriously regretting trying to repair the screen myself because now I have no phone at all. :(
Phone is now working again. The really tiny inductor by connection 7 was missing. Small amount of solder to reconnect to two contact points and I have full service.
Is this a good question?
