We've discovered a "signature fault" in the iPhone 7 series which results in no audio meaning no sound from the ear speakers, loud speakers or microphones. Occasionally this also triggers boot-loops, which is when the phone tries to turn on a fails the hardware check which causes the phone to reboot for an extended period of time.Read More
In order to determine if the Tristar IC is functioning properly, test the voltage of the battery terminal--after you confirm that the phone is pulling amps using the ammeterRead More
Typically we see iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6S Plus with a half backlight due to the phone needing not one but two anode backlight circuits. With one anode backlight gone out it effectively shuts off half of the led light strip in the backlight panel.Read More
With the aide of schematics, board views and donor parts these repairs are often feasible and much cheaper then the alternative which would involve replacing the whole motherboard, which sometimes can compromise the data on the device, rendering the information unreadable.Read More
Typically for a backlight to go out on the iPhone 6S would be a result of a few things, 1 being liquid damage on the motherboard causing corrosion and shorting out the backlight circuit which contains a diode, a backlight ic (U4020) as well as few other discrete components. Another way a backlight circuit can go out is also by installing a replacement screen and bridging a few of the connectors on the LCD FPC connection thus causing a short and ruining the circuit.Read More
A blown back light on an iPhone 6 is typically caused by a screen replacement gone wrong or a sudden drop on the phone which can damage some of the components on the backlight circuit.
Lets take a look at the back light circuit and evaluate the possible issues and solutions to this problem.Read More
Often times with smaller mobile devices, a need for shrinking the surface mounted components arises. With the smaller components comes smaller tools. Typically working with components on the 0402 scale and even smaller makes using standard tools very difficult. The scale is literally microscopic; components on a board can be smaller than a grain of rice (hence the microscope)Read More
