    My iphone 6+ screen has become pixelated and wont show the normal screen. This happened after i got the screen replaced. I can link it to itunes and restore it but it still wont come on. Has any one ever come across this before?

    Is this likely to be a hardware issue or a screen issue?

    Thanks

    Where did you get the screen replaced? What do you mean by pixelated?

    Was it done at an official Apple store? Yeah, it looks like the problem might lie in the wiring not being properly seated maybe? That's just what I'd read when I googled the issue.

    Sounds like the usual third party repair shop, they usually suck. Hope you can bring it back to them for a fix!

    No it was not an apple store. I did pull it appart this morning and re attached everything but not much luck. I am between two minds to buy a new phone or buy another screen to try again.

    That is not pixelated that is screwed. You need to pay another visit to your mall kiosk!

    I'd say if after re-doing the wires, it would be more viable to just buy another device. To try the screen again would be a risk with no guarantee of a good outcome.

    I agree but its the difference between risking new screen for £50 for nothing or paying £700 for a new one

    You don't have the option of perhaps a refurbished unit? You're right though about the price disparage. However, it is an older device.
    What happened with the initial screen?

    It was dropped and smashed the screen. Worked fine for a month then it started to play up.

    See that's what I would be concerned about. It might go beyond the screen. You could have damage to the logic board or other components.

    I'm thinking your device is experiencing a hardware failure.

    You are probably right. It did manage to restore it self and it is recognised by itunes but nothing on the screen. I will probably buy a new phone but worth checking. Thanks for your help.
