Here are the most common iPhone repair issues:
If you finish repairing your iPhone only to discover your phone has no signal, it could be an issue with the antenna. Sometimes when the antenna is disconnected the metal surrounding the antenna connection can get slightly bent. Use a nylon spudger to gently round out the metal before trying to reconnect the antenna again.
When reattaching the antenna here are a few things to keep in mind:
– Remember, there are four teeth that need to be correctly placed under the iPhone frame
– Make sure the screw holding together the speaker assembly is screwed down tightly
– Check that the antenna wire is securely clipped down on the logic board
If you are still not getting a signal, try resetting your network connections.
Logic Board Issues
If you are having trouble detaching the logic board, it is possible that not all of the screws have been removed. The logic board is held in place by three screws and the SIM card. One of the three screws is covered by a white water sensor. The SIM card will hold the logic board in place even if the screws have been removed. To easily take out the SIM card use a thumbtack or paper clip to gently press in on the SIM card tray and it will slide out.
To safely remove the logic board it is best to start at the base and gently lift up. Remember, there are 6 connections that must be unclipped from the logic board before it is removed. Be sure that the logic board doesn’t touch the antenna connection during the iPhone repair process.
IPhone Battery Replacement
When replacing the battery in your iPhone, be sure to NOT use any metal instruments when removing the electrical connection. This could result in the electrical connection short circuiting. Instead use a nylon spudger often included in iPhone repair kits.
