@Josiah Naturally, leave it to Apple.. @Buddhika FPC connector looks fine, but thanks for the idea. @Josiah It's got to be the L1801, I've decided to clean up the phone and send it in to Apple for a refurbished unit, as I do not have the skills to do microsoldering sadly. Thanks every one for the input, however. =)
Defektive screen, I'm 99% sure. Been working for a repair shop for almost two years now.. A while back we got in an entire batch of screens that did exactly that, the manafactures did a poor job glueing the glass down to the plastic frame, so when the phone gets warm the glass starts to seperate from the frame. Sadly only thing you can do is replace the screen again or attempt at glueing down the glass yourself.
Hi Jim Smith, The problem could be anything,honestly. You would have to open the phone to inspect any possible damages. Could be the battery is not charged and your charger has broken, could be that the LCD has been cracked and you need to change the screen, could be a water damage causing a short circuit.
Hello Lee, This problem is caused either from; Defective Glass or The strip of "padding" on the lower side of the LCD not being removed. I do not understand why you have to remove this padding, but you do. It looks like 5-6 (I don't remember the number in my head really..) cushions on a strip of tape that is very easily removed. (I believe there is one strip on each side of the LCD)
Hello my Ifixit family. After having repaired quite a few Iphone 6s now I've found a solution to the most common problem with the sensor. While extensive testing I found out that the light leakage is caused from inside of the phone. Simply adding a piece of electrical tape between the internal speaker/camera where this is a large gap stops the light from the LCD from reaching the sensor, which is the problem. (Note, this leakage can easily be tested by making a voice memo, changing the speaker in the top right so that sound comes through the internal speaker and put a tape piece/something dark over the sensor on the front side of the screen. Then take your free hand to the internal part of the screen and cover up areas until you find the leakage. :) ) I take a piece of electrical tape, double over it (so both sides are sticky, so to say) and place it over the ESD protection of the battery contact. When you place the screen down the tape covers the hole perfectly and I've yet to have a problem with a sensor...
When a phone is water damaged the following steps should always be taken: 1.) Turn off the phone. 2.) Take out battery asap. 3.) Clean the entire phone/motherboard with 98%+ Isopropyl alcohol 4.) Evaulate what is functioning/not functioning and act accordingly.
