    I'm willing to bet that the customer tried to fix the phone their self and stripped the screws in the process.
    It'd be incredibly hard for a qualified technician to strip screws if they had the right screwdriver.

    • Andrew
      Andrew 4 months ago +2

      To further add if you have to do the charging base removal method you'll need to push the screw hole clips on the screen off the screws to get the screen off. Can cause damage but usually it's fine to do.

    • Andrew
      Andrew 4 months ago +3

      @Aynur Kaliki You can use an air gun to heat up the screws, I usually do 350c for about 10/15seconds, and use a Philips driver to unscrew them. You can also just remove the charging base and unscrew them from inside the phone with some pliers if they're long enough.

    • Aynur Kaliki
      Aynur Kaliki 4 months ago +3

      @Andrew I’ve had the same problems. Do you know a way to take the screws out when they are stripped?

    • IljasCustoms
      IljasCustoms 4 months ago +14

      usually there is dust and grease inside the screwheads which can actually cause this. If you don‘t remove all the dirt beforehand, there‘s a probability that the screw will get stripped, even if using a brand new Wiha screwdriver. I‘ve stripped some myself in my first days, ever since I‘ve been cleaning out dirt before attempting to unscrew the pentalobes.

    • Andrew
      Andrew 4 months ago +40

      Nah I have been working with phones for years and the newer models, X and upwards, all have issues with screw heads stripping as the phone ages.

  • Creative Name Goes Here

    I’ve owned an iPhone 6 that had never had any work done with that screen separation issue, so I would say that someone just dropped it but the screws tell another story.

  • Cristian Buiucli
    Cristian Buiucli Month ago

    One thing I noticed with these newer iPhones the reason the pentalope screws get stuck so easy is because people press down on the display too hard when holding the phone and unscrewing it at the same time, bending the screws and making it difficult to remove

    I once had a screen replaced on a Sony that was so bad it literally cracked in my pocket the next day… Then I noticed the corner was a little lifted so I ran my thumb over it gently and it crack under my thumb. The glass was paper fucking thin and not even installed properly.

  • Maku_komori
    Maku_komori 4 months ago

    Yep same shit happen to me but the SIM card reader. I cracked my screen and went to get it fixed. After a few and a ok price the phone seemed fine until after a few days the screen started to pop off and now the touch sens will stop working or it starts thinking I’m tapping my screen when I’m not. (It just did it when typing) so be careful where you get your phone fixed
