A Dead Iphone 6 Was Brought Back To life
A friend of mine brought his Iphone 6 for repair. He said that his phone fell to the ground but the Iphone was still working fine. Later on when he tried to charge it, well, take a look and you will see the problem.
It looks like a normal phone but a dead one.
The next photo will explain more.
I have seen this happens a lot with Iphone 6, 6 plus and 5C. When the customer tired to charge the phone, the battery got damaged and became thicker pushing the Iphone screen out.
I took the two screws holding the screen down near the home button key and gently pulled the screen upward keeping in mind that the screens flex cables still attached to the board.
First thing to do was taking the tiny metal plate that cover the battery flex cable and then work my way out to the second plate that is covering the screen, proximity sensor, and touch flex cables .
This is the bulged battery that actually pulled the Iphone screen up. It was completely damaged and needed a replacement.
A new battery that was wrapped in plastic was installed in the phone.
Of course the plastic has to come off before the installation take place.
It is always a good idea to test the phone out before snapping the screen back on. As seen in the photo, the phone came on and it was working fine again.
The customer is a carpenter and I could tell because wood dust was covering the phone inside. I cleaned the phone inside out and snapped the screen back on. Customer was happy to see his phone comes back to life and so was I.
