iPhone LCD Display/Screen Related Issues:

Problem #1: When display is either flickering, dim or completely blank and in some cases when the backlight stops working. That is when your iPhone display looks yellowish as it would with night mode on. People usually assume it is a fault with their iPhone LCD unit. Which is true however, it could also be a result of water damage, dust, dirt or even a loose connection.

Solution: iPhone is a complex device with integrated units working in conjunction, so opening it yourself is not advised. This requires professional support to diagnose the problem and resolve it effectively. In this case the best option is to dial 800iRepair to get professional support.

Problem #2: LCD is shattered, has a major scratch, backlight bleeding or the touch is not working. This could be caused by an impact or if your iPhone is exposed to excessive heat for a prolonged period.

Solution: In this case the LCD unit has stopped functioning the way it is supposed to, so the only feasible solution is to replace it. Once again, opening the iPhone, ensuring the safety of delicate chips and wiring inside and replacing the LCD unit in the right manner requires a specific set of expert skills. Not to mention an ESD protected area that would avoid any sudden electrostatic discharge and destroy the device. Therefore, it is recommended for you to call 800iRepair and have professionals resolve the problem.

iPhone is not charging:

There could be numerous reasons why this may happen. It could be a malfunctioning charger, socket unit, software issue or even perhaps the iPhone dock connector might have stopped working. To resolve this issue, follow these steps:

  • If you are using a wall charger, try using a different electrical socket. Otherwise if you are trying to charge your iPhone via USB, try a different USB or try connecting it to a wall charger.
  • If the above step does not fix the problem, try hard resetting the device. The link to our instructional guide on how to hard reset the iPhone models is listed above.
  • Finally, try using another charger. If that still does not work, then the problem is most probably with the dock connector and it must be changed. Call 800iRepair and we can fix it for you in no time.

Water Damage:

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are waterproof but the older models are prone to faults if they are exposed to water on any other liquid. This is highly time sensitive problem especially for people who are living in UAE because our tap water is sourced from the Sea and has corrosive properties. So, the longer the internal chips of your device, whether it is your iPhone, iPad or MacBook, are in contact with water, the more chances are that the device may become irreparable. Call 800iRepair immediately in such a situation and our customer service team will ensure that the damage is minimized.
