    Another question. What to do when these force start instructions result in a dead black, unchanged screen?

    csrmclaughlin - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

    So I’ve replaced the screen but still have just a blank black screen, when I try turning it on it has the plug in and charge icon pops up, and goes off when I unplug, but nothin else will display on screen!!! HELPPPP!! PLEASE!!

Swollen battery kept the home button from properly working on my phone, it spread the case apart slightly. Do you have battery problems?

Eric Andersen -

If the home button was malfunction, how to force restart?

Brillant guide. Was my first time opening up an iPhone for repair. Guess what? It even works afterwards, which, I have to admit, is rarely the case when I try to fix something. Thanks

Kit fit great. Be patient when installing. Would recommend

i did this with my phone and a bunch of grey lines appeared and then it went completely black and no logo came up?

haileyfarlow123 - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

It is just off, it doesn’t do anything, even I left it hooked for the hole day and it won’t even show the battery when charging. Is there any way to full reset? I do not even care anymore for what I have, I just want my phone back.

what if the homebutton does not work? Is there a way to restart then?

Sharon Held - crwdns2853112:0crwdne2853112:0

i got so incredibly lucky. i actually misplaced two of the screws belonging to the panel that holds down the 3 display connector cables, saying “&&^& it” and only using the two at my disposal. fearing having to buy a new phone (having completed all the steps), i forced a restart and… it works perfectly. no common issues that i had seen in any of these comments. thanks so much!!
