iPhone 5 screen replacement; screen goes black after removing SIM cardIve replace many iphone 5/5C/5S screens but this one has me stumped. After replacing a screen on an iPhone 5 everything works...
Answer to: Please Help! iPhone 4s - Black screen but phone is on and workingSo here's what's happening. You have the 2 cables on your screen replacement, the longer more flimsy one is more than likely pinched. This will also cause your screen replacement to shift and not seat properly. What you'll need to do is get to the last step of the screen repair. At this point, the replacement screen is unscrewed from the bezel. At the top, close to the power button, seperate replacement screen from bezel being mindful of the cables. What you just did is freed the pinched cable. Now is time to reassemble. As your closing the gap between replacement screen and bezel, keep the longer flimsy cable taught as you seat the replacement screen to bezel. The replacement screen should fit like a glove! If it doesn't seat properly the first time, just readjust the long cable again. If it seats properly and you still have a black screen, remove replacement screen and inspect cables. This has happened in a few of my repairs. Just be patient and you'll get it.
