My daughter's friend has a iPhone 7 plus with a totally wasted screen. She was using it for a while then on top of that it died and won't charge. We tried all known working leads but nothing.
I tried a new screen in it for her as a favour but it won't charge. I then got reading and reading there's a very good chance it's a IC TriStar chip at fault.
Has anyone had this ?. One guy is selling repair service eBay. I'm just wondering if to tackle it myself. I've done plenty of small work but nothing this small. I have all the gear and a decent rework. The problem is, her m8's details are in the phone so she said if my daughter who's eyeing it up can get it fixed she can have it cheap otherwise she'll eventually send it off to apple to get it sorted..
Anyone done this repair or can recmmend someone who can. I was going to try get it fixed then stick it away for crimbo....I know, 8 know tight arse old get .... true :)
Thank you

Turns out the girl who owns the phone had a screen replaced some time ago by some Asian phone repair shop in town.
When they replaced it they've only gone and done "pry damage" lifting cables and did damage to the logic board.
It cost me £40 to get it sorted and a new battery.
