When replacing parts does not provide a solution or resuscitate your device, the only explanation is a failure of the Main Board or the Logic Board.
When a device suffers damage, the obvious problem(s) appear to be a component, for example a screen or a charging port. These component failures are readily and immediately experienced by the user to be the proximate problem. Replacing the damaged or non-functional component would seem to be the obvious solution. Thus, a user comes to The TechKnow Space to have this problem remediated/repaired. Typically the doctor (our seasoned technicians) have no problem doing this.
Sometimes however, replacing/repairing components turns out to be an exercise in futility. Further diagnostics establishes the problem to be resident in the Main Logic Board. The replacement of these logic boards is prohibitive and best left alone. It’s time to move forward to a new device.
Bear in mind that these mainboard failures are a result of the initial damage to the device that prompted a visit to the repair shop even though it is not intuitively obvious.
In addition to the standard mute, silent and vibrate mode functions that is featured on most smartphones, the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have the ability to turn off sounds with simple motions and gestures which makes life much easier.
The quickest and easiest way to silence the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is with the "Mute Switch". Alternatively you could hold down the volume-down button until it switches to silent mode.
If your iPhone 7 mute switch fails to silence the noise - walk into one of our locations in Mississauga/Toronto & our technicians will be happy to assist you.

IPHONE 6, 6 Plus MUTE SWITCH REPAIR
iPhone 6 Mute Switch
The mute switch is the button above the volume controls on all Apple iPhones. The design of the switch for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus is slightly different, with a longer, thinner button to accommodate the skinnier body of the phone.
The mute switch, or the “ring/silent” switch, affects whether or not the phone makes any noises. A bright orange strip behind the button tells you it is in silent or mute mode and without the little orange box means it is in ringer mode. However, when this switch is turned to silent mode, the screen will still light up with calls or texts. Ars Technica, a prominent blog about technology and communication, explains the switch,
“In "regular" silent mode, the screen is still fair game. When there's an incoming phone call, the screen lights up, and you can take or ignore the call as usual, except the people around you are spared from having to listen to your favourite ringtone. It's the same with other kinds of notifications: the screen comes on, and unless you changed the "vibrate on silent" setting to off, the phone also vibrates to catch your attention. If that happens a lot throughout the night, an iPhone on your nightstand could certainly interfere with a good night's sleep.”
Apple added a new function to compliment the mute switch to the phone software called, “Do Not Disturb” mode. This mode won’t turn the screen on at all, and allows users to automatically send calls to voicemail and ignore all notifications. This mode can also be set to start and end at certain times, which is perfect for going to meetings or the movies.
The mute switch might not seem like an important part, but using your phone without can get pretty inconvenient at times. Phones are meant to make your life easier, not more difficult – so why live with a device that doesn’t work 100%?
