Secrets Your Mobile Phone Insurance Company Doesn't Want You To Know

The promise of phone insurance and the reality of it are vastly different. Most people seem to think that if they “break” their phone the insurance is there to replace it with a brand new one. For some, a “broken phone” is really just a shattered screen that could have been replaced at a repair shop for about $100, but instead they send it off to Asurion and have their phone (that had a perfectly functional motherboard and had never seen a drop of water) replaced with a “Refurbished by Asurion” phone whose mobo was shoddily repaired after liquid damage by a half-rate technician contracted by the company to mass repair boards collected from other phones sent to the company from customers that don’t really seem to understand what their phone is worth.

iPhone 6 Backlight Repairs

…The iPhone 6 that we had showed signs of life but no display. After replacing the screen with a new one, it still showed no signs of an image. When inspecting the screen in front of a flashlight, a faint image was visible. This confirmed that the phone was on and in fact worked, but had a blown back light. For this type of repair it would require micro soldering. After checking the filters on the motherboard we found them to have continuity and functioned within specifications. At this point in the back light circuit we still had a back light display BGA IC (ball grid array integrated circuit) as well as a coil and a diode. After checking the coil, which was also found to be within specifications, we then looked to the diode. Below is the picture of the diode under the cpu heatsink.
