It sounds like the issue may be a little deeper then a component replacement. You have done all the things I would have so I would imagine there is an issue with the logic board itself. It may well have fried itself now though
Hello Sarah I was going to suggest cheap aftermarket batteries can often be faulty or not last long, but as you have tried 2 there is probably another issue I would imagine something on the main board is causing the issue. The only other thing that I would try is to install a new lightening flex. This may be causing an issue and they are relatively cheap to buy so worth a try Regards John
Hello TPK If you have tried changing the loudspeaker with no Joy, my next port of call would be having a look at the lightening flex. Check for any damage as these can tear or chips fall off during installation. I would try a new one if I were you to see if that solves your issue. Let me know how you get on? Many thanks John
This is an extremely hard thing to do especially if you do not have specialist tools. The likelyhood is you will break the LCD whilst separating it from the glass. I have tried and failed many times. Have a look at some YouTube videos as you'll get the best idea as to what is involved My recommendation would be to shell out and get a whole unit. The price of aftermarket ones has reduced dramatically over the last couple of months. You can pick them up now for around $50. Good luck
It sounds like a poor quality aftermarket screen. The glue on these aftermarket screens just aren't up to scratch and the fail normally along the sides. This then causes the screen to pop up from the frame. You can attempt to glue back to the frame, but this is a pretty delicate job. I would return the screen to where you brought it from
Is this light leak near to the mute button? This is a common problem with aftermarket screens, although they look identical they appear to stick up slightly causing light leak. Personally I think it is a design fault as there are no screen clips on the chassis at the point around the mute button which leaves a large space not being secured to the phone. Sometimes it pops up slightly causing this light leak. I am pretty sure when the next model comes out Apple will address this issue. Sometimes the issue is caused by the glue failing along the sides. This causes light to leak between the glass and frame. Hope this helps a bit Regards John
Wow after deciding not to bother with iPad Mini's some 8 months ago after suffering many of the above mentioned effects I decided to have another crack this week..........4 replacement digitisers later!!!!!!! I might have cracked it. I cannot express how high my blood pressure must have been during this repair. Every time the touch screen was going mad. It turned out that I was pinching the digitizer flex cable and causing it to break. I remembered from last time that i needed to cover all of the exposed copper and circuitry, but I just couldn't work out what i was doing wrong until finding this page. Each of the digitizers appeared to work fine up until I tried mounting the screen. In the end I placed a bit of UPVC electronic tape either side of the flex cable (hoping to give it a little more strength). When mounting the screen start with the top of the device leaving yourself a gap at the home button end. This way you can see how the flex cable is bending. I used a spudger to gently encourage the flex to...
