    Help iphone 6 possible long screw damage

    ok, so told a friend I'd do a quick screen swap on their iphone 6.

    long story short, no screen now. looks like a case of long screw damage. (slightly longer screw in wrong hole damaging logic behind it)

    Anyone know/used a repair service in the UK for this problem before?

    Cheers

    Do you know where the long screw is or where the damage has been done? All I can think of is the panel that screws down the display assembly connectors to the logic board but I have never come across this as I put the screws in separate compartments during the replacement. If anyone has experience with this here it will be Mobileman.

    Thanks to evilsatan

    Iv seen this on a iPhone 5s that some one hard changed the screen
    And thought at the time that it would be easy mistake to make
    I think you will be lucky to get it fixed ,you might be cheaper paying apple to swap it out .

    Only took the screen off to test her boy's 6 before ordering a screen for that one. Tried calling it but no ring tone or vibrate. Mute switch doesn't vibrate the phone either.
    I must've mullered the logic board.
    Put it all back together and she took it to apple today, will find out tomorrow the outcome.
    Think I may have to swallow this one.
