14 iPhone 7 logic board symptoms with solutions

iPhone repair

This blog will be going over 14 iPhone 7 logic board symptoms and their possible solutions. I say possibly because this blog will be going over micro soldering with the logic board. These are advanced techniques that can be used to debug your iPhone issues and it's recommended only for iPhone repair shops or people wanting to get into that business. We partnered up with www.newyorkliu.com to write this blog. Mr.Liu has been in the repair business for over 20 years with experience working in Huawei.

7. No Backlight or cannot adjust brightness

Usual sympton is when you connect board to DCPS and the amps jumps way too much and the board starts to heat up. First, test D3701 and D3702 using multimeter each side when reverse testing should be the same. If not the same, just replace them.
