Antenna Issues

After you repair the phone and discover that phone has no signal, there is probably an issue with the antenna. When removing the antenna sometimes the metal surrounding it loses connection due to slight bends. Gently round out the metal using a nylon spudger to put the antenna in place. A few things you have to keep in mind while reattaching the antenna are, connecting the four teeth on the iPhone frame, tightly screwing the speaker assembly, securely clipping the antenna wire on the logic boar. After everything is done properly, reset the network connection to get back the signal.

Logic Board Issues

Next, problem that users often experience is the trouble from detaching the logic board. This happens when all the screws are not removed. The logic board stays in place because of the SIM card and screws surrounding it. There are total three out of which one is covered by the white water sensor. The logic board is held by the SIM card even after unscrewing all the screws. So first take out the SIM card using a paper clip or thumb then press on it to slide it out. To remove the logic board completely, you have to detach its six connections. Also take care to remove the logic board without making a contact with the antenna connection.

Battery Replacement

While replacing the iPhone battery, ensure that you do not use any metal instruments to remove the electrical connection. This can result into short circuiting. Use a nylon spudger to do this. When you are removing the battery, there are chances to tear off the plastic pull tap. To do this, smoothly use a nylon spudger to gently remove the battery out.

Next, press and hold the Wake button for 10 seconds until the phone starts and shows the logo. If the phone still doesn’t start, maybe the battery is out of power. Plug your phone to the power outlet and let it charge for 2 or 3 minutes.
