iPhone 6 Plus Screen Very Sensitive After Replacement

Problem: I recently replaced the screen/digitizer combo on my iPhone 6 Plus. Initially, we couldn’t get it to power on at all. Second attempt resulted in the speaker not working. Third try produced a bunch of lines in the screen that made it not work at all. Final attempt at reconnecting the 4 ribbon connections & everything seems to be working at first, but the screen is SO hypersensitive. Particularly in the bottom left hand area. Every now & then, the screen goes absolutely crazy & starts opening apps & calling people all on its own. I can also hover my finger over the screen (without making contact) & it’ll activate the buttons nearby. As you can imagine, texting is a nightmare. Any suggestions?

Solution: In this particular case I suggest opening the phone again then rechecking everything that has been done. Then there’s also the possibility that the screen/digitizer combo replacement may not be functioning properly so another one must be tried on your phone to check if this is the case.

What I suggest you should do is to backup your phone data then restore the phone as a new device. Once this is done do not install anything yet or restore the data. Check if the issue still remains.

If the problem still persists then I suggest you bring your phone to an authorized service center and have it checked. I suggest you try the Apple Store so that you phone can be professionally repaired.
