I've been in the business of wholesaling iDevices, Macs, PCs, Android phones and tablets for 4 years now. Wholesaling is 90% talk and 10% actual work, which left me with much free time.
I used to source the repairs to a couple of repair centers, with complete lack of control over quality and lead time. I decided to invest my free time in bettering my services and building a repair-based clientele.
So I enrolled in iFixit's first ever trial pro program and jumped onto the repair wagon, learning the basics of general repair and parts replacement (screen, battery, etc.) using proper techniques and best-practices.
After a while, swapping parts on iDevices had no more secrets for me (or my better half, who decided and succeeded in learning how to repair) anymore, and we wanted to differentiate our business by offering board-level repair.
After months of trial and error, frustration and failures, all of a sudden, I was able to un-solder and re-solder tiny components without making a mess.
Then I fixed my first back-light filter on an iPad Mini. Then I revived a dead iPhone 4S.
It has been a long and bumpy ride, but our deep dive into micro repair paid off!
We now offer comprehensive board repair solutions for all devices. But we specialize in iPhones, iPads, and specially Macs.
We have acquired expertise in repairing Mac boards after liquid damage, using the best (and most expensive!) cleaning equipment, tools, and chemicals. Our tested methods ensure that corrosion is stopped and removed even from underneath the chips. This way traces and components are shielded from future deterioration.
We also repair other issues like dead, not charging, not working off of battery and/or off of DC charger; no Wi-Fi, no USB, etc.
We also service Mac boards that do not turn on or run properly following DYI or other repair. We fix pry damage and replace damaged/missing components.
Other than Macs, we offer many board-level repair services for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices:
General micro-soldering | replacing connectors, capacitors, resistors, back-light filters, etc.
Micro-race repair | repairing trace damage, long-screw damage, BSOD, etc.
Micro-BGA repair | replacing micro-chips commonly known as U2, Tristar, Touch IC, etc.
Data recovery from dead or liquid damaged devices - specially iPhones & iPads.
Specifically, we offer solutions for:
-- No display / no backlight after screen replacement or other repair for iPad 2, 3, 4, iPad Mini, iPad Air, iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6S.
-- iPhone dead, not turning on, or not charging after battery or screen replacement or other repair.
-- iPhone / iPad dead or not charging from no apparent reason, or after using cheap knock-off chargers, car chargers, or battery banks.
-- No touch on iPhone 5S, 5C, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus. Usually following a drop.
-- Repair broken component during attempted repair / pry damage.
- All our solutions are "no fix - no fee" meaning if we do not succeed in repairing your device or retrieving your data, we will not charge you any amount of money.
- We offer free assessment and diagnostic.
- We carry parts in stock (and also sell them wholesale) for the most recurrent repairs so that clients don't have to wait days for parts to be ordered.
- - - Last but not least, we back all our repairs with a 180-days warranty -parts & labor.

Answer to: changed screen and iPhone still not workingIn most cases, a screen ghost touching or clicking by itself is due to bad screen. On the other had, screen not responding to touch can be either bad screen or failed logic board. To narrow down the issue to either/or, you should try and find a known good screen. Not necessarily new since new screens can be defective out of the box (or you can damage them while installing them). For example, try your two screens on a known working device to make sure they are ok, and/or try your own device with a screen known to be working fine on another device. If you still get touch failure with a known good screen, then the touch circuit on your iPhone 5S has failed it is not uncommon. We've fixed our share of those, and they are usually pretty straightforward if the technician is experienced with them. BUT, the iPhone 5S board repair may not be economical if you compare cost of repairing the board vs. cost of purchasing a used device in a working condition. So consider that as well.
Answer to: iPhone 6 ghost touches/multiple faulty displaysThis is a bit tricky and one of the reasons why I never sell my screens to DIYers. Not talking bad about anyone who is brave enough to try this repair, but I know how many things can go wrong. And I've ruined quite a few screens in my days until I learned to have a light hand. So based on your description, I would say that most likely all the failures are due to a bad part or a botched repair - as opposed to a bad logic board that may be causing these issues. Lines, squares, artifacts on the screen, screen fading out, and missing touch lines can all be either bad screen cable, or badly inserted connector. Or damaged connector on the board if you've been rough on them. Screens ghosting (multi touching by themselves) are most often bad screens. Finally, most screens on the market are very cheap copies that fail out of the box or don't last at all. To make a long story short: 1- Pay a bit more and buy from a reputed seller. Believe me when I say that we (as in third party repair shops that care for our image, ou...
Answer to: iPhone 6 turned itself off and won't turn on again or charge!From the description you gave it sounds like something failed on the board and shorted. It could be a number of things on an iPhone 6 board that “spontaneously” fail and brick the phone. It could be Tristar itself of course, but in this case I lean towards a failed and shorted cap that “grounded” a major power rail. Think of it a bit like a main water supply pipe bursting and the water draining out instead of reaching the intended components. I recommend that you have it taken (or mailed in) to be examined by a third party iPhone technician to determine the exact cause and possible solutions. For someone with enough experience, these are usually pretty straightforward and you should be able to regain both your iPhone fully functional as well as your data. There are cases where the storage chip (the NAND) that holds your data may have malfunctioned and died; in which case you can fix it but not recover your data. It is less common and I would bet on other things in your specific case.
Answer to: iMac slow after screen replacement, fans upThis model of screen has a small thermal sensor with cable that is attached on the screen. If you turn the old screen, look at the back/top. You will see a small board that has two cables plugged in. One of those usually connects to the main mother board (the larger cable), the other one (the narrower and shorter cable) goes to a tiny piece of circuitry which is actually the thermal sensor. With that sensor unplugged (if you left it on the old screen and did not transfer it to the new screen), the fans will ramp up to the max speed, and the iMac will interpret it as something is overheating and will consequently slow down. You can double check this by installing a temperature monitor like Aidan suggested. It should say that the LCD thermal sensor is bad/missing or giving a high temp signal.
Answer to: I want to replace the HDD for a SSD@ajcooke01 Well there is a blade and it is already taken by the SSD part of the Fusion Drive. Jorge can of course upgrade just that blade BUT: - He will have to pull the board out of the housing, which is always a bit risky; - The blade costs a lot as they are Apple proprietary. On the other hand, SATA SSDs are not that expensive and easier to reach within that iMac. Jorge can instead replace the HDD with a 960GB SSD and "re-build" the Fusion Drive and in my opinion it is always worth it for most applications. And possibly purchase an enclosure and use the 1TB that he would have pulled from the iMac as an external Time Machine back-up drive or for additional storage space.
Answer to: Left side of screen clicks after screen repair.I bet the new screen is bad (likely) or was damaged during installation (possible). To verify this, put back the old screen if you still have it (and if it does show an image and has touch). So to fix this, get a new screen from a reputable vendor that test their screens prior to shipping or at least carry good quality product and a warranty to match. I'd say iFixit.com is a great choice for this (we are not affiliated). Before installing the new screen, clean the frame of the phone with acetone or some non-watery solvent and make sure you remove every bit of dirt, adhesive, double-tape, whatever was present from before. It should be so clean you'd eat off it. Apply a new adhesive seal, but don't remove the protection foil until you've tested the new screen, making sure of the following: (1) Home button works; (2) Touch ID scans your finger print (try adding a new finger print in Settings); (3) Record a short selfie video with sound and play it back to make sure you have image and sound; (4) Call a toll-free ...
Answer to: Long screw damage problemLong screw damage iPhone 6 can break the LCM lines inside the board and cause no image. You may have also caused a backlight failure when replacing the screen without disconnecting the battery first. So assuming you tried with a known good screen that was tested working with a different device, you can conclude that you have board level failure. This board level failure can be backlight failure as well as long screw damage (most likely the latter). Or both if you are unlucky.
Answer to: MacBook Pro 15 2013 Integrated GPU goes sleep itself randomlyI would say that you may have a battery issue. Possibly also a “hall sensor” failure. Start by testing the battery, download and install “coconutbattery” and post the results here.
Answer to: 3D Touch query iPhone 6sThe screens from iFixit have the 3D touch panel incorporated in the screen assembly. You need only to transfer: the home button, the metal plate covering the 3D panel, and the front camera assembly.
Answer to: My iPhone 6 is unresponsive in places. Will a replacement screen help?What you are describing is indeed most likely a failing screen assembly. A new screen assembly should resolve this. Provided you have no liquid damage. Sometimes, you may have board failures that cause similar issues (screen intermittently fails to respond to touch), but first and foremost try a new screen.
