Rispondi a "replacing the rear camera, do I have to change screen if it has scratc"Who is offering you this “service”? Is it Apple or an independent repair shop? This wouldn’t surprise me if it is Apple. If this is the case, consider going to an independent repair shop as they will repair just the camera and it will be much less expensive than 260 euro. An independent shop should not have to replace a working screen just because it is scratched.
Rispondi a "Flash, front and rear camera all not working"The Front Camera and Flash will not work if the Rear Camera is defective/damaged/disconnected so focus your efforts on the rear camera. Start by verifying if it is properly connected. You can also check the condition of the connector (flex and board) as well as the general condition of the flex cable itself and the logic board. The flex is delicate and even the tiniest tear can cause issues. Likewise for the logic board as there are tiny components all around the connector and damaging or dislodging components can happen. If everything looks okay, you could try to disconnect the FCAM & Flash and see if the Rear camera works by itself. If it doesn’t, then consider replacing the camera.
Rispondi a "iPhone 6 no display after baseband reball"I agree with Chris, baseband reballs require a lot of heat and in close proximity with the NAND. Even a smooth reball can cause issues and often times it is a slip of the tweezers or even the holder causing some dislodging. Start fresh, probe the main secondary power lines and inspect all affected caps/IC’s to insure nothing moved around.
Rispondi a "Why does my phone randomly restart?"As Akash suggests, I would certainly do a good visual inspection of the battery connector area. I would also specifically concentrate on a tiny component right next to the connector (R2201) which allows the battery state to be communicated to the CPU. Sometimes this component can be damaged or missing causing erratic readings such as you are seeing. The other possibility here is that either your replacement battery is defective or your charge circuit may be damaged. This can happen when using low quality chargers and cables.
Rispondi a "Apple claims water damage (which voids warranty) but never happened?"Aahh…paragraphs, how I miss you so… :>) Seriously, a little formatting goes a long way in helping with readability but I understand you are upset . Now on to the good stuff. Your phones behaviour certainly seems like water damage but the only way to know is to inspect the phone directly. Unfortunately, Apple didn’t provide you with any proof (a few pictures would have been nice!). It is also possible they confused your device/ticket with another one. Now that you have your phone back, you could open it up yourself and look for the LDI stickers to see if they are red. Or you could drop by a local shop and have them take a look. However, water damage can occur without “tripping” the LDI and the opposite is also true, for example., humidity. The only way to know for certain is to closely inspect the logic board after the shields have been removed. This falls more into the domain of a micro-soldering repair. If the phone was truly water damaged, it may not be repairable and many shops won’t even try although...
Rispondi a "Audio ic / no service"The audio IC does not cause service issues however the root cause here is dropping the phone repeatedly. That causes the small copper traces connecting the C12 pad to crack (Audio IC/Loop Disease). The drops could also have caused some damage to the antenna interconnects or possibly a cracked solder ball under the Baseband PMU or CPU. The logic board needs to be thoroughly inspected and probed to know for certain.
Rispondi a "How to replace digitizer"You will need to replace the screen assembly, you can follow this guide.
Rispondi a "emergency my iPad shows that it is charging but it s not"It sounds like a dead battery…however before changing the battery, consider this: (1) Always try another Lightning cable and charger, preferably Apple original or MFi certified units. (2) The Lightning cable 8-pin connector should be sitting flush with the housing and completely inserted. If it is not, there could be lint/dust/debris inside the port impeding a proper connection. You can clean it out with a toothpick, fine point tweezers or a dental pick. Just be careful not to damage the pins inside the Lightning Port. (3) Change the battery. The battery is the weakest link in the entire phone and certainly for charger related issues. It is also the easiest thing to replace. Use a battery utility, such as coconutBattery (for Mac) or 3uTools (for Windows) to test the battery prior to removal. Anything less than 70% of design capacity will require replacement. (4) If the battery is in good condition, you can use a USB Ammeter to determine if the phone is really drawing current when it says it's charging. If...
Rispondi a "iPhone X no power"What happened in the days leading up to this issue; was the phone dropped, repaired or came into contact with water? This could be as simple as a bad battery (although iFixit batteries are usually very good) or it could be a logic board issue. You could try disconnecting the screen and cameras from the logic board (battery first!), leaving only the board, dock flex and battery and then see if the phone will be recognized by an iTunes enabled computer. If it doesn’t see the phone, then it is most likely a logic board issue. If the phone does boot, then add one flex at a time until it stops working to determine the faulty part (again, always disconnect the battery).
Rispondi a "Why is my iPhone X randomly shutting off?"The iPhone X has extraordinarily thin logic boards, two of them sandwiched together. They are very susceptible to cracked solder balls, either in the interposer (which connects the two layers) or on the boards themselves. At this point, you will need to troubleshoot the phone with the notion that this is a hardware issue. It could be modular in nature, i.e., the screen or a camera or other flex or it could be logic board related. You could bring the phone to it’s essentials, board, battery and charge port, and then connect it to an iTunes enabled computer. If the computer recognizes it and maintains a solid connection, then the issue is probably modular in nature. Otherwise, it is logic board related and will need to be looked at by an experienced micro-solderer.
