Answer to: Strange screen behaviour once clipped in placeWell don’t ask me how or why this worked but the solution was to remove the small metal washer and spring that was on the screw that holds in the home button flex, and also helps to secure the bottom of the LCD shield, initially i thought I’d put the component on the wrong way round but I would only sit correctly at on position I also verified on you tube that it was in the correct location. Some items I read suggest removing the spring / washer / ground tab would cause problems for the home button but it doesn’t appear to Once removed clipped the phone back together and all was fine!!
Answer to: Display Brightness won't go over 50% after chassis swapWell I figured it out, after market battery was the problem must be some kind of current limiter or voltage regulation issue with the non-Apple battery. I realised that the common component that was moving with the problem was the aftermarket battery. Stuck in a genuine though high cycle Apple battery and the brightness control now works and screen appear much brighter. Time to try a different battery supplier.
