    Default Strange iPhone 5 LCD Problem ?
    The other day I had an iPhone 5 come in . I had put a rose gold back cover on it a couple weeks ago (irrelevant). The person had thrown their phone at the floor out of anger. Frame was bent pretty good and screen was white. I took all components out of the gold housing and returned them back to the original white unit . Same problem , phone was white when you turned it on and then went to a black screen with white stripes . I tried swapping the screen with a working one from another 5. It still didn't work; this time the phone powers on with a white screen then goes black with a white line at the top. Also tested out the LCD that was on the phone when it got smashed and it works fine on a different iPhone 5. Phone makes sounds and is recognized by iTunes . It was jail broken at the time but I plugged it into iTunes and restored it . Has the LCD cable connector been damaged or could it be another component of the phone that has been damaged? Any help is greatly appreciated . Thanks!😀

    Sounds to me like the connector on the board was damaged. I've actually got 2 of those sitting at my office that customers didn't want to pick back up afterwards.

    Does that mean the motherboard is garbage. Is there anyway to fix this?

    I would definitely make sure there isn't anything on the connector on the board and possibly cleaning it up a bit just to make sure before considering the board junk. Also, a restore is never a bad option.
