    A great reminder on bending flex, the same could be said about flex in most MacBooks

    unfortunately, this vid adds to the argument of unsafe repairs. but it adds to the argument if servicers had access to real parts, the aftermarket trash would not be the issue.

    Actually good (or lucky) engineering, that the ground trace was designed to act as a fuse and blow. That saves a total fire in the device. I had that on a high end PC graphics card years ago, and was told it was actually intentional design.

    I've always only used Soft OLEDs in my iPhone X repairs. The idea of switching screen technologies always seemed like a really bad idea, so I've avoided it.

    Hmm, is there a small piece of rubber/foam that can be placed to reinforce a loop that would normally exist?

    Is it advisable to tape that edge, to try and prevent any potential exposed metal to contact another surface? What about a "green enamel" UV product?

    Good detective work … if the short happened at the crease, with the exposed wires on the flex, wouldn't it also show signs of burning there as well? Seems like all the burning happened at the connector. Seems more likely that the bend in the flex cause increased resistance in the circut, heating it up and the weakest point was the connector. Kind of like when you kink a water hose and water sprays out at the faucet connection.
