My Problem

Display had shattered on a relatively new, 64GB, iPhone 4S. My father-in-law dropped his 64GB, iPhone 4S and it shattered. He replaced it with an iPhone 5. He decided to give it to my son to use essentially as an iPod Touch. Given that it was 64GB, I felt like it was worth $100 to try and fix it given that a 64GB Touch is $400. So I ordered the kit, including the tools to make the repair.

My Fix

The process went great. I used a blank piece of paper and taped down the screws/pieces for each step. It took me a couple of hours but it went great. You guys are awesome! A couple of the steps I had to figure out the notes you guys listed, but all in all it was straight forward and everything works. I really appreciate it!

My Advice

I have a 4S where the power button doesn't work. I ordered replacement parts for this as well. I will tackle this tomorrow. But, if you have a cracked case, these directions worked like a charm and saved about $300 to get an equivalent iPod! Thanks again - iFixit!

My Problem

My phone's lock button had stopped working a few months ago and I was tired of using the assistive touch bubble.

My Fix

Fairly smoothly. Hitting a snag during repair meant looking to the comments to see how others fixed it as the guide missed a few key points. Overall the reassembly was a smoother process and the phone went back together nicely.

My Advice

Keep your screws organized and be patient.

My Problem

My power button was broken, it didn't click. I lived with it for over a year (using the on-screen assistive help to put my phone to sleep) and it sucked. The repair is listed as a hard one though, and I didn't want to risk breaking my phone. Finally my phone was old enough that I decided I could risk it.

My Fix

The repair went great, and the phone works perfectly now. It took longer than I expected, and there were several spots where I got frustrated trying to get tiny parts on or off, but in the end it all worked out.

My Advice

Be patient and careful. Use a piece of paper off to the side to keep track of all the screws and parts. Have a big block of time set aside where you won't be interrupted.

My Problem

The power button didn't work.

My Fix

First I just ordered the power button, but the problem was the Power and Sensor Cable. I had to pay twice for S&H. (About $70 USD, I live in Mexico city).

The guide is not very clear after step 28. I broke the old Power and Sensor cable because the guide is not clear. Anyway, I was replacing this.

My Advice

If you need to replace the power button because it doesn't work, it is not the power button, it is the Power and Sensor cable. Buy additionally the Earpiece Speaker if you don't want to have additional problems. The adhesive is useless once you take it from the old Power and Sensor cable.

My Problem

All of a sudden the power button stopped working. I ordered the cable and the button as a precaution as I didn't want to take the phone apart only to find out I didn't have the spare at hand.

Sadly, neither was needed :-(

My Fix

All good except for the front camera. Leave it alone unless you truly have to replace the cable.

Be careful with the digitiser and display cable. They are right in the way of the power button and have a tendency to break.

My Advice

Use a P#000 for the Philips screws instead of a P#00.

You need a flat screwdriver to remove the spacers. The bits that come with the iFixit toolkit are way too thick and the quality of the tools left me a bit unimpressed. Some are not up to the task. Make sure you have a thin flathead about 2.4mm at hand before cracking the phone open.

I ended up fixing the problem by carefully applying a few tiny drops of nail polish on the power button. The part that was needed (the actual power button switch) wasn't available from iFixit.

My Problem

Daughter's I phone switch quit working. Didn't want to pay 150 dollars to have repaired.

My Fix

First time I screwed up by not paying attention to the where the other parts of the flex circuit were when I was attaching the power button to the case. The flex got nicked by the other flex circuit metal connector backers still in the phone. See Photo. Ordered another part and payed closer attention to that detail. Note: adhesive backer was on the wrong side or came off and flex circuit was stuck in cellophane pouch. All I could think of was another torn flex and it wouldn't be my fault!

My Advice

Go slow. Used a stereo microscope but be aware of where the other circuits may be contacting. Flex circuits have registration holes to locate to nubs in phone or mounting items.

Everybody ended up happy daughter and wife - the wife because her loaned phone was no longer needed by my daughter :). The put together took about 1.5 hours. Worked fine - power switch, cameras phone etc Yippee

My Problem

Power button KO. I fix it cause is by far the cheapest and funniest way of recovering your phone..

My Fix

Flawless repair, slow cause it took me 2 hours, but thanks to the ifixit guide I had no problem at all.

My Advice

The guide lacks somme photos specially concerning the light sensor extraction which is quite a pain, and I thought I had break it when I discovered that theres a metal clip retaining the sensor, which is not indicated on the guide, it just says to use the plastic tool to take it out, but not knowing how it's mounted you could easely tear down the sensor until you discover theres a retaining clip which doesn't comes out easely with just the help of the plastic tools...it needs some more playing with the twezers to take it out..

My Problem

My power button was stuck down - no amount of pressure would make it work. I read in the notes that the problem was likely the power cable, not the button itself, so that's what I ordered.

My Fix

It took about an hour - I was nervous, first time, you know. The directions and photos were excellent. Even the warnings about things that might get lost or damaged in the process.

My Advice

Re-installing the cable was tricky. It ships flat but has to be contorted pretty good to get into place. Go ahead and buy a new earpiece - the sticky gets undone during disassembly. I had to plug in the cable then roll it over to plug in the bracket and slide the ear piece into the loop of ribbon. It was awkward but works fine. I labeled a piece of paper with the screw sizes - there are about 8 different ones. When I took one out, I taped it to the paper. Reassembly was a breeze because I was confident I had the right screw for each spot.

Thanks y'all @ifixit, saved me some coin and got my phone back in business! Tom

My Problem

Power lock button didn't work any more.

My Fix

GREAT! Had to back up/undo the reassembly part way through for I forgot to install the position sensor. After that all went well.

My Advice

Wish y'all would put the reassembly steps in the guide step by step for better flow of the project.

This is a very tedious fix, should only be attempted by persons with patients and an eye to details.

Sorry no picture the IPhone is my only camera

My Problem

The power button stopped working.

My Fix

Got the tools and guide, very good light because screws and pieces are VERY SMALL. Followed the guide step by step reading all comments on the side, and doing it very carefully. You can't go wrong.

My Advice

Be careful with putting all back together, as the pieces has only ONE order, and nothing should be forced into its place. Earpiece is very tricky.
