I just bought a used iPhone 4S with cracked screen, and installed a new lcd with gold frame. Just after putting the phone together it starts overheating. I have not installed any apps since recovery (fresh start). It seems as if the chip and the flash memory gets extremely hot. I almost burned myself touching it! The battery drains quickly from 20% to shutdown in a few minutes.

Does anyone know a solution to this?

  • Are location services on, and being used? – demure May 24 '13 at 18:46
  • Just replacing the screen wouldn't cause this... what was the cause of the broken screen in the first place? – Henry F Jun 18 '13 at 1:49

This seems relevant: https://www.hcqs.com.cn/blog/how-to-fix-iphone-overheating-after-screen-replacement. It indicates that while replacing the screen one could introduce a short that causes overheating.
