I had severe problem with the ear speaker and it started to develope battery discharge issues. I live in a remote area where servicing will take 2-3 weeks. And I have a terrible fixation with understanding everything I use.
The repair when swimmingly, until I got a little over zealous with cleaning the guts out with a cotten swab and isopropyl alcohol. I broke off a (what I assume to be a shield contact arm for the ear speaker) thing, and soldered it back together. I cleaned both parts with aforementioned alcohol and put just a titch liquid RMA flux on both. Then while the flux dried I set my iron to 200c. I then applied just a scosch of solder to both sides of the joint and joined them. Clean again (more carefully) test the joint are voila!
Read the above. Be patient, thorough, and patient. And don't forget Occam's Razor.

My iphone 5 went through the wash cycle in my coverall pocket. Everything recovered except the earpiece speaker (speakerphone still worked) the rear facing camera. The front camera works until you try to use the rear camera then the phone has to be shut off to get the front camera to work again.
The earpiece speaker was a snap, it took under 10 minutes & worked perfectly the first try. The rear camera is still not working, I am going back in to see if I can find out why.
Don't wash your iphone.

headset speaker no workie
easy peasy. 2 pentalobes. 2 teeny philips. In and out. Ordered the new iSclack for future repairs as the hardest part is yanking the screen off.
order an iSclack so you can take the screen off easier. Nothing worse than pulling too hard and ripping the cables.
