Iphone 5s Screen Flickers by Dhavido(m): 11:28pm On Oct 17, 2017
Good day guys. I’ve been using an iPhone 5s for about 5 months and it has fallen once in the 5 five months, I have a tampered glass protector so nothing happened to the screen. The tampered glass only had a little crack at the top and that was about 3 months ago and last month the screen of the device starts to flicker, it sometimes will show vertical lines that will disappear after using it for some minutes but will come back if the backlight goes off and you just on it again.

I updated to IOS 11 some days before the issue started so I’m wondering if it’s a hardware or software issue.

Please tell me how to solve if it’s a software issue and also tell me the component(s) that’s faulty and the expected cost of fixing it if it’s hardware problem.


Thanks

Pretty much likely to be a hardware problem.

Do this by yourself: Unclip and clip back your screen connector to see what happens. It could be that it isn't properly connected, due to impact. Please endeavour to disconnect your battery connector too before doing anything.

If the problem persists, then you need to replace your screen. Screen replacement cost will depend on your location but an authentic screen should be around N15k max.

Thanks! I guess I’ll just get a tested and trusted engineer to help me with that as the YouTube videos I saw on how to open the screen is something I can’t risk doing myself
