My Problem

Faulty home button or ribbon cable

My Fix

I have been using my iPhone with a faulty home button or ribbon cable for so long I can't remember. It came to the point a month ago where the button didn't work at all. So I had to assign the optional assistive touch button to access or close apps and that drove me insane. Enough is enough I finally threw in the towel and got online to see if there was a fix and sure enough iFixit popped up. I thought why the !@#$ not. The video and step by step guide seemed simple enough and they even had the right tools. So I placed my order which arrived within a week. Not too bad. Following the video and step by step guide as I thought was easy enough and though the screws were so tiny having the right tools for the job made things quite easy. The only thing I think I did wrong was apply to much force when lifting the front panel off the backing case with the suction cup which came right off without needing to pry the two apart with the tools. Luckily I didn't damage anything. I replaced both the ribbon cable and the button as I wasn't sure which was faulty. Putting things back was fairly simple as well and my phone powered up without any issues. Freakin awesome. Thank you iFixit I am so happy.

My Advice

My advice is don't wait too long to fix your device. I had to use the assistive touch button for so long that now even though with the new home button in place, out of habit I still look for that damned assistive touch button.

My Problem

I fixed it myself mainly because the "repair centers" around here charge as much as the phone cost for any kind of service, and they usually do a crappy job doing it.

Second i don't like throwing a gadget away just because ONE button is not working anymore.

My Fix

The repair got through quite smoothly, a bit of trouble unscrewing the lock button but everything went well in the end. Nevertheless it seems like the button was not the problem but the power sensor that is pressed by the button.

My Advice

Better make sure to have an accurate diagnose before buying spare parts.

My Problem

Upon visiting the Apple store to complain about the useless power button that mysteriously stopped working on my iPhone, I was told that my only option was to purchase an expensive "out of warranty" replacement. Fortunately, after researching the problem, I chose to buy a repair kit from iFixit instead!

My Fix

The repair process went well, although it was nerve-wracking trying to make sure that I didn't lose any of those tiny screws. It took about two hours, but that included redoing a few steps that I didn't get quite right the first time around. All I can say is thank you so much for the detailed guide! I have a working power button now!!

My Advice

Definitely need a lot of light to see what you're doing. I'd recommend a head lamp. :)

My Problem

I have had my iPhone 4 now for a long time. Thinking about upgrading to the iPhone 6 this summer. But then the screen broke after it hit the floor one time to much. Aaa !@#$ no. I'm not gonna buy a new phone now, so I decided to fix it.

My Fix

Repair went very well. It was also my first. I ran into one problem when this one screw didn't come loose and it was the last scew that held the display assembly in place. So I broke the plastic thingy on the old disp.as. and on the new one and made it fit. Haven't got any problem after the repair. And also I think while reassembling the iPhone I also fixed the wifi-problem I've had for a long time. So now I have a new screen and much better wificonnection.

My Advice

Take your time. And the Screw trays is highly recommended. Reassembling was easy when I knew a exactly where each screw fit.

My Problem

cant afford a new replacement phone

My Fix

repair went fine

My Advice

dont need to remove the battery

My Problem

iPhone suddenly - right after a perfectly fine phone call - rebooted and went into a cycle that after about 10 seconds, would shut down and start again. Tried charging the battery. Tried re-installing the software. Everything failed to get the phone out of the cycle. Never once progressed to the start-up screen. Ordered new battery.

My Fix

Everything went perfectly well. iFix it doesn't address the antenna which is screwed into the same place as the battery screw, but it's pretty obvious to take out and put back in. Just don't be surprised when it suddenly appears to come loose. After the repair, had to put the phone through a full re-load of software and back-up data replaced. It took twice to get it working smooth, but since then absolutely no issues and it's like the phone never had a problem.

My Advice

If your phone is turning on, booting half way, and re-cycling - do try to replace the battery. It was a $50 investment with battery, tools, and shipping, but worked like a champ. Problem solved and life goes on. Replacing the phone would have been much more expensive and complicated.

My Problem

Lock button stopped working most of the time

My Fix

Took me a little over an hour. Watch out because there are several different types of screws - helps to draw a picture of where they are from as you take them out and set them and the parts there.

My Advice

Small fingers help a lot.. mine are not so small... pointy tweezers were helpful too.

My Problem

As all Kids, mine also love elektronics. But loving also means taking care. And taking care also means repairing them: themselves.

My Fix

It is not the first time we repaired an iPhone, but we realized last time, that good tools, are half the way.

My Advice

We use YouTube Videos for instruction. that is sufficient.

My Problem

My iPhone 4 developed a common and frustrating problem - the flash LED was stuck on, even when the phone powered off. After trying all remedies proposed online, I decided to replace the iPhone camera.

My Fix

This is not an easy repair - I screwed it up multiple times and figured out what I'd done wrong either because I couldn't get the case to close, or because the new camera also had the LED on, or wouldn't take photos. Ultimately, I worked it out and have a perfectly functioning iPhone, but not without a few moments of flopsweat.

My Advice

It's really hard to connect the cable from the phone to the socket. You will likely fail to seat it correctly at least once. I resorted to keeping the battery in place, disconnecting the connector partially (I left the screw in loosely, and used my spudger to disconnect the battery connector. Then I wrestled with the connector, reconnected the battery and tested with the case open. This saved a ton of time, though it obviously is more risky than removing the battery entirely.

My Problem

The iPhone screen popped out of its case

My Fix

Great everything worked as planned

My Advice

Buy this to open your iPhone
