  • After unlocking all four locks of iPhone 5 LCD screen, gently pull it up from the bottom until it makes 90 degrees angle with the body of iPhone (as shown in figure).
  • Now disconnect display strip and touch strip in order to completely remove LCD screen.
  • Now take new LCD screen and connect display strip and touch screen strip in the similar way you disconnected them from the faulty LCD screen.
  • Now gently place new LCD screen and gently push it from the corners in downward direction (as shown in figure), so that the new LCD screen can be locked again.


  • Make sure that you don’t bend iPhone 5 LCD screen, as it is very delicate in nature.
  • Always perform this procedure while phone is turned off or screen is off. If you remove strips while the screen is on then it is going to damage your phone, its components or screen, and in worst cases iPhone 5 dies completely.

    i try to restore, hard reset, dfu mode and nothing works
    i see many forums but nobody have an anwer for this problem i thin is a hardware problem but i dont know what is.
    thank youvery much.

    • I don’t think that’s a hardware issue, and that’s quite odd that you are having this issue after you have broken down your LCD Screen. Just in case if you think that its a hardware issue (as you have already tried everything else) then i recommend you to unplug and re-plug your iPhone 5’s display connector strip and check. If that doesnt work then Flash your phone (format) after connecting it to your phone. If that doesn’t work for you then get it repaired from authorized Apple repairer, as you can’t do anything else in this case.
