iPhone Won’t Turn On After Screen Replacement? Fix Now!
You’ve just replaced your screen, but now your iPhone won’t turn on. It’s frustrating to have one problem fixed while another emerges, but there are a few different things you can to solve this problem. In this article, I’ll explain what you can do if your iPhone won’t turn on after a screen replacement!
In almost all instances, broken screens can result phone repair or replacement. This is due to the fact that a broken hardware can’t be fixed by tweaking any software setting. If you find yourself with a mangled or physically broken screen, this article won’t give you a solution to fix it.
When your iPhone isn’t functioning properly, sometimes turning it off and back on is all you need to do to fix the problem. Since the screen won’t turn on, you’ll have to do a hard reset to restart your iPhone. The way to hard reset your iPhone varies depending on the model, so we’ll break it down model-by-model.

A DFU restore erases and reloads your iPhone’s software and the firmware. This is the last step you can take to completely rule out any sort of iPhone software problem.
Just like with the hard reset, the way to put your iPhone in DFU mode varies based on the model you have.

It’s time to check the hardware of your iPhone if neither a hard reset nor a DFU restore fixed the problem.
First, check to see if your iPhone is on and it’s just the screen that’s broken. Try flipping Ring/Silent switch on the side of your iPhone that turns your ringer on and off. If you feel it vibrate, that means your iPhone is on, and it’s your screen that’s broken.
If this is the case, your next step is to reseat the connections of the display inside your iPhone. It’s very important to disconnect the battery before trying to do a screen replacement because it’s easy to short something out due to the current going through the phone.
We’d recommend finding a professional to do this, unless you already have experience fixing iPhones.
Often times, the replacement screens people buy aren’t the best quality, so it could be worth buying another replacement screen and trying again.
Unfortunately, it only takes one little misconnection to cause a significant iPhone problem!
Repairing an iPhone is very challenging, so we usually recommend letting an expert handle it. You may want to consider going back to the company that replaced your screen in the first place and ask them to fix the problem they created.
If you tried to replace the screen on your own, you’ll want to get rid of the new screen and put the old one back on. Apple won’t touch an iPhone or give an out-of-warranty replacement price if the iPhone has a non-Apple parts.
Another great repair option you could turn to is Puls. Puls is an on-demand repair company that sends a qualified technician to your doorstep. They’ll fix your iPhone on-the-spot and give you a lifetime warranty on the repair.
