Answer to: Stripy colored blurry linesThe lines could mean a few things. 1: It could be the screen showing signs of potentially going out. 2: Could be that the display connector may have come a little bit loose. 3: If you’ve ever had your screen replaced, it could be that the screen was not a good quality replacement and/or may be bad. Any of these would mean opening the device (carefully) to diagnose. Based on what you said about pressing on the upper-right portion of the screen tells me the display connector may have come loose. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything bad, but if you do decide to open the device, please -for your device’s health and your own sanity- make notes on where the screws came out of and make sure they go back in the same place! If you pop the connector off and connect it back (again, carefully) and it’s still doing it, try to make an appointment with your nearest screen repair place or order a screen from here! Btw, the full assembly makes the repair a WHOLE lot easier. Also, for your convenience, here’s the iPhone 6 sc...
Answer to: Battery has swolllen, can see the damage on the deviceYou should receive everything you need to perform the repair in the kit. Other damages to the device could potentially be to the trackpad, case, and -if it's bad enough- the keyboard.

I've seen MacBook batteries so swollen they are literally crackling and moving after being taken out and the device was fine after the replacement. Just be careful!! :)
Answer to: What is the ylodThe YLOD is when the system is no longer functioning properly and displays a flashing yellow light on the power indicator. If you are experiencing the YLOD, there are a myriad of reasons why it could be. More often than not, a component on the board has failed and the system determined it critical and detrimental to continue running. This link will give you ideas as to what caused it. P.S. I found this in that link: The Yellow light of death is used by the PS3 to indicate a hardware failure with the consoles motherboard. There are a lot of things which can go wrong with a motherboard, and this is by no means an exhaustive list. The most common reason for Montherboard errors in Consoles is caused by overheating. Consoles have notoriously bad air flow and push their thermal limit rather regularly. This usually results in solder (a material used to connect computer components) heating to a point where it liquefies and detaches. There are many components for which losing solder is non-fatal, but many YLoDs are ca...
Answer to: Keyboard not registering the Letter l & n when depressedSeems like there might be something preventing the keys being pressed under the key. Try removing the keyboard and giving it a good clean with compressed air just to see if that's the issue.
