    iPhone 6 weird no touch issue

    That is a classic presentation of touch disease on an iPhone 6. In the 6, touch disease is about 10-fold less common than on the iPhone 6plus and it is not associated with the gray bars and M1 separation that defines the fault in the 6plus. For the iPhone 6, the fault is less clear, but can be...

    6s no image

    "Jumped 1.8 to that" why? Always be eliminating variables NOT ADDING THEM! Sending 1.8v into the CPU when you have no evidence that there is anything wrong with that line is a GREAT WAY TO RUIN SOMEONE'S MEMORIES. I have no tolerance for that. Time for you to learn how to troubleshoot image...

    iPhone 6S won't charge, detects cable.

    ok, so the fault is "fake charging" with a known good charged battery, other variables eliminated. Let's start there. You've replaced tristar and then later tigris. My advice would be to replace tristar again. A bad tigris can sometimes kill a tristar. This is a pretty common fault so the...

    iPhone 5S - Issues after Tristar replacement

    Did you overheat bb_cpu on opposite side of the board? Pull shield and check for signs of heat. Also check to see if you have lost little peckers near dock from not pulling the sticker before putting heat on the board. And use known good dock not original dock from the phone. Boot off D.C...

    iPhone 6S won't charge, detects cable.

    Post what happens with good batteries--i.e. Charged batteries. Right now the fact that all your data posted is about dead batteries below 0% is a variable. if your troubleshooting "can this phone charge" then you need to give it a battery that is not dead. if you are saying "this phone pulls...

    Lead Toxicity - What Are the Physiologic Effects of Lead Exposure?

    Yes you are 100% safe from airborne lead poisoning through use of fume extractors. This is largely because the route of lead into your body is through eating and drinking or dermal contact with lead. Lead itself will not vaporizes until it reaches well over 1000C.

    iPhone 6S won't charge, detects cable.

    You'll save yourself a lot of trouble if you ditch the bad battery and use a good one that has some charge in it.

    Yes. Stop reballing chips. This is almost always a waste of time and introduces a variable into your troubleshooting making the entire process 2x more complex.

    [SOLVED]iPhone 6s no image

    Use your brain. You are troubleshooting image. Where does image have to end up? At the connector. Stare at the connector on the schematic and figure out what lines are most likely related to image as opposed to the other functions routed through the 6s lcd/digitizer connector. Of the ones...

    iphone 6s goes from approx 99% batttery to dead, then will turn on, then dead again

    Use your brain. How does tristar fail? Does it fail because someone drops the phone? Or does it fail because of electrical damage from unprotected charger voltage. Now tell me why "reflowing tristar" is a dumb thing to do here.

    [SOLVED]820-3115 logic board

    Wondering why is great. Now translate that into a test. Consider each thing that plugs into the board a variable. How can you figure out WHICH variable is the one that is the problem? Remember what I always say "You don't have a board problem until you KNOW you DON'T have a parts problem."
