Replacing the screen of your phone is the cheapest way to do it since you won’t have to pay a service charge. However, if you are unfamiliar with the procedure then something may go wrong.

How To Fix iPhone 6+ Issues After Screen Replacement

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.
