사용자에게 답변하기: iPhone screen not responding to touch after dropThe first thing to try is to replace the screen. However, because you have dropped your phone in the past, it may also be suffering from something similar to Touch Disease on the iPhone 6 Plus. This is much less common on the iPhone 6 but the main symptoms can still occur on phones that get dropped, bent or twisted on a regular basis. So try the screen first. If that solves your problem - great! If not, then consider having your phone looked at by an experienced micro-solderer.
사용자에게 답변하기: SD card cracked on the sideAn SD card is really just a small circuit board with a memory IC and a controller IC and the board is inside the plastic housing. Now, if you stepped on it, then chances are something broke physically inside. It could be the circuit board (damaged traces or layers), it could be the IC’s soldered connections or the actual IC’s themselves. If your computer can “see” the card but not the data, I would suspect the issue is with the memory IC’s. Someone who does micro-soldering may be able to recover the data by repairing the board or the soldered connections (or even transplanting the IC’s to an IDENTICAL board). Finally, the data may be recoverable directly from the memory IC’s via a process called Chip-Off data recovery if the controller is bad but the memory IC is still good. At the end of the day, it’ll probably come down to how much you are willing to pay to get this data although there are circumstances which may make the data totally unrecoverable (damaged memory IC, encrypted data, no “solutions” for the ...
사용자에게 답변하기: Phone has power but screen does not turn on after screen replacementIt’s very important to always disconnect the battery before disconnecting/reconnecting the screen assembly. The issue is that the LCD connector has pins that have high voltages (i.e. the backlight is ~20V) and ground in very close proximity. When you fumble around trying to line up the connector plug to the receptacle, you can short out the voltage rail and cause damage to the components in the backlight circuit. If you’re lucky, then only a backlight filter is damaged but other times, the entire circuit could be affected. Either way, this type of repair requires micro-soldering and isn’t really a DIY repair. To test for this, plug your device into a charger or an iTunes enabled computer. Then shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you can see a dim image, then the backlight circuit has been damaged. If you can’t see an image at all, then it may be the LCD circuit that is damaged. You can connect the original, cracked screen to confirm this. If the original screen has the backlight on, then the replaceme...
사용자에게 답변하기: Why did my replacement screen stop working?Was the phone destroyed before or after you replaced the screen? It may just be a bad screen but if the phone was initially in bad condition, this may just be a delayed symptom from the original carnage. Try a new screen to see if the problem persists or not.
사용자에게 답변하기: Battery at 1 percent, searching for carrier and very slow bootI’m a little confused about which phone is which in your description. Perhaps you can edit it to show something like “I bought a phone (phone 1)…battery from phone 1 inside phone 2 does ...blah, blah, blah”. It can be difficult for folks to follow the story because we don’t have the personal insight and understanding of the situation. Keep in mind that you may have damaged something during the repair/transfer process so that adds in another variable. Ideally, you want to get one phone working properly (or at least with known issues) and then try the testing again. The slow boot is also caused by the Audio IC issue so you have to compartmentalize the separate issues. The charging issue is most likely battery related but it could also be charge port, Lightning cable or charger related.
사용자에게 답변하기: iPhone SE ghost touching, potentially camera related?The most likely scenario is a damaged/defective screen. The only way to know for sure is to install a good quality or preferably known-good screen. With the SE, you have to be careful because while the screen is theoretically the same as for the iPhone 5S, some lesser quality iPhone 5S aftermarket screens don’t work well with the SE (in fact, they tend to ghost touch). So buy a premium/OEM replacement screen (don’t go for bottom dollar stuff) and test it out. If it doesn’t solve your problem, then there might be a connector issue or a logic board issue. A micro-soldering tech could help you out in those eventualities.
사용자에게 답변하기: I can't remove the pentalobe screws, Can I break the screen off?Sometimes applying upward pressure on the screen with a pry tool while you try to unscrew the screws works. As per Ben’s question, are they spinning or not turning because the pentalobe recess is stripped? You have to be very careful at this point because if you force the screen too much, you could damage the Home Button or HB flex or even possibly rip off the connectors from the logic board. You could try bring the phone to a reputable shop. Maybe they have some tricks they can apply to get the screws off.
사용자에게 답변하기: Battery replacement denied because of motherboard issue?Apple “Geniuses” are anything but. If they plugged it into their diagnostic tool and found some logic board issues, they will not attempt any repairs. Certain logic board issues can cause excessive battery drain and yet still allow the phone to function. Without knowing more about the specific issue your phone has and what the history of the device is, I can only suggest you either give us more info or have the phone looked at by a reputable shop that does micro-soldering repairs.
사용자에게 답변하기: Why does my iPad keep on showing the dead red battery loop?Are you using an original (or MFi certified) Apple charger and cable? When troubleshooting battery/charging issues, I would do the following (in order). Some of these steps are much easier to do on a phone than a tablet but complete what you can and report back: (1) Always try another Lightning cable and charger, preferably Apple original or MFi certified units. (2) The Lightning cable 8-pin connector should be sitting flush with the housing and completely inserted. If it is not, there could be lint/dust/debris inside the port impeding a proper connection. You can clean it out with a toothpick, fine point tweezers or a dental pick. Just be careful not to damage the pins inside the Lightning Port. (3) Change the battery. The battery is the weakest link in the entire device and certainly for charger related issues. Use a battery utility, such as coconutBattery (for Mac) or 3uTools (for Windows) to test the battery prior to removal. Anything less than 70% of design capacity will require replacement(unfortunately...
사용자에게 답변하기: iPhone 6 won't updateIt’s sounds like the damage caused by the water was not fully resolved. With water damage, you have to decontaminate the logic board before doing anything else, otherwise there will be latent issues down the road. Not every water-damaged phone is recoverable and depending on the kind of liquid (salty, dirty, filthy), sometimes the success rate is quite low. That said, IMHO, it's always worth a try otherwise we are just piling up the e-waste. The water is inside the phone, on the logic board and under the shields, even under the IC's. The real problem is the mineral deposits that can cause short circuits or the corrosion that is taking place as the water evaporates. Leaving the power on the device accelerates the process. The longer you let a phone sit, the more time you are giving corrosion to damage your logic board. The saltier or harder the water is, the more damage will occur. The water needs to be displaced, not evaporated. The proper way treat a wet phone is to do the following: (1) Open your phone and ...
