iPhone 6+ Swipe Screen Sometimes Not Working After Screen Replacement

Problem: I have installed a new screen w/digitizer on an iPhone 6 Plus. The iPhone was dropped on the upper right had corner and has developed a lag in the screen responsiveness. with a new screen installed the responsiveness is much better but sometimes the swipe screen does not work until I press on the upper right had corner and the the screen responds. Could there be additional internal damage in the upper right hand corner i.e., circuit board, connector, etc?

Solution: Since the issue occurs intermittently I suggest you try to check if the phone software is causing this issue. Back up your phone data then restore your device. Make sure to setup your phone as a new device. Once this is done check the swipe functionality and see if the issue still occurs. If it doesn’t then it was probably caused by a software glitch. You can now restore your data to your phone.

If however the same issue occurs after restoring your phone then this may already be a hardware related issue. This may be caused by a loose connection perhaps. You need to open your phone again and retrace the steps you took in replacing the screen.

iPhone 6+ Error 53 After Screen Replacement

Problem: The screen was cracked so I had it replaced. Once I tried to restore from back up – the phone froze. I cannot turn it off. iTunes gives the Error 53. It cannot be updates, restored or turned off. Please advise.

Solution: You should try to replace the charging cable first and see if this resolves the issue. You should also check the charging port of your phone for any signs of dirt or lint. If you spot any then clean it using a can of compressed air or cotton bud dipped in alcohol.

If the issue still persists then the most likely reason for this is that the fingerprint scanner cable has been damaged during the screen replacement process. This cable connects the phone fingerprint scanner to the board. What you need to do is to have this cable replaced at an authorized service center.

  1. Please help ! I just had my iphone 6+ screen replaced because it completely blacked out. I could hear my phone ringing but i couldnt see anything.I took it to a repair guy and he put a new screen. Now my sound doesn’t work when i make a phone.. I have to put it on speaker just to hear. Also after he fixed it my front camera doesn’t work.I took it back to him today and he re opened to see if it could be fixed and said that maybe my front camera went out and ordered me one. Nowwwwww my problem is that it keeps cutting off every 5 minutes and will not hold charge at all ! someone please help me figure why all this is happening. I really would have to buy another one after putting so much money into it.

  2. I just replaced my iphone 6s Plus screen it turns on but my screen DOES not work at all. I can’t swipe ive tried to click on apps and still nothing. What can I do to fix it ?

  3. Repair tech here. On item #1, most likely the IC chips in the mother board have worked loose. I’ve had phones come in with broken screens, but working fine. After taking the cables loose and plugging them back in (just that little bit of flexing of the mother board), the IC chips came completely loose. This is an Apple issue due to the flexing of the body of those phones but they won’t admit it. Electronic repair shops that do micro-soldering are getting rich off of these phones.
    On item #2, this will happen if you replace the original home button with a replacement if the software isn’t current. Original home button pairs with original mother board. Apple has fixed this issue with software updates but, replacing the home button will render your touch ID useless.

  4. Hi, last night I replaced my 6s plus screen, have done quite a few and always been spot on, this time I have no sound, I can make a call and have a conversation, the camera front and back is fine, but there is no sound, i.e when playing games, ringing etc, even silent doesn’t vibrate, I’ve tried plugging headphones in but this doesn’t work either, I’ve stripped the phone down and put everything back in place about 10 times now… help

  8. The screen on my daughters phone is severely broken. with glass missing around the home button and the forward facing camera and sensors. It was working, but the screen and digitizer obviously needed to be replaced. I do similar stuff at work. So i figured I’d give it a try. My wife ordered a kit off line. I’m not sure what store. Anyway I replaced both the screen and digitizer as seen on every youtube video. After changing it, the phone turned on and the screen works, however it doesn’t respond to touch. So I took it all apart and put it back together. Same thing happens. Assuming the part was bad I took it out and replaced it with the old broken screen…crap now it’s doing the same thing. Screen comes on. Home button works. Touching it has zero response. HELP ME….PLEASE!
