My Problem

cant afford a new replacement phone

My Fix

repair went fine

My Advice

dont need to remove the battery

My Problem

My ear piece speaker was damaged (from a previous tear down), and was near impossible to hear clearly out of - made the iPhone difficult to use.

My Fix

Repair went well. Had some issues with the iPhone starting back up after install, but eventually it found its "brains" and started up normally. It kept indicating the battery was dead and needed to be charged - which was not true. Regardless, after a few minutes it was all back to normal.

My Advice

Watch those screws. They be tiny, tiny, tiny.

My Problem

Audio quality from the earpiece speaker was terrible.

(Muted-scratchy)

My Fix

Using

the repair guides at Ifixit.com the speaker replacement went perfectly.

Only to find out the issue was likely caused by 4? Years of pocket lint, earwax and goo buildup in the speaker grille.

My Advice

Replace the speaker.

It's cheap and sounds GREAT.

But also take the time to clean the speaker grille.

You should be able to shine a light though that grille (speaker removed) and see light I saw.... A potato.

It was pretty bad

My Problem

Speaker was dead on used phone what I bought, so decided to fix it rather that taking back to seller.

My Fix

Repair was quite straight forward following your guide.

My Advice

The only point where little thinking was required was the relocation of the new speaker. The location is not defined exactly by surrounding parts, so you can install it sideways slightly off, maybe 1-2 mm if you don't look carefully how it originally sits. And since it attaches with adhesive tape it might be difficult to relocate once put on place.

My Problem

Ear speaker on iPhone 4 went out. I could use speakerphone (the bottom speaker) but not the one at the top of the unit. It was annoying, inconvenient. Audio quality was bad.

My Fix

The friend who recommended iFixIt volunteered to do the labor if I bought the part and the required tool. He followed the instructions. It all worked fine. He removed many tiny parts from the phone, so I was a little concerned, but it all went back together and it is working now.

My Advice

Follow the instructions, be patient and don't lose an parts.

My Problem

The earpiece speaker in my wife's iPhone 4 suddenly stopped working. She could use the speakerphone, or a Bluetooth headset, but not the earpiece speaker. The iPhone 4 was already 2 years old, and out of warranty. I didn't want to pay for a brand new iPhone, and I didn't want to renew my cell contract.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. I followed iFixit's instructions, and everything went well. The printable screw guide really helped with the disassembly, and re-assembly. Once re-assembled, the iPhone powered-on during the first try, and everything worked perfectly.

My Advice

Use iTunes to make a backup BEFORE starting the repair. Make sure you have a magnetic screwdriver, a pair of tweezers, and a spudger. I bought the iFixit Home Tech Toolkit, and it definitely helped. Go slow, and don't panic. The screws and ribbon cable connectors are really tiny! I also learned that battery replacement for the iPhone is a trivial job. If I need a new iPhone battery, I'll place another order with iFixit.

My Problem

the Earpiece-Speaker wan't work.

My Fix

I have change the Earpiece-Speaker

My Problem

As you may already know, phones and water don't mix. I fell off of my dock into the water with my phone in my pocket. Fortunately, I wasn't in the water for more than a couple seconds. Still, my phone was soaked. I immediately pulled off the cover and tried to power off the phone. Which, in retrospect, may have been what caused the problem. Then I plopped the phone in a bag of rice and hoped for the best.

After a day, I took the phone out and tested the phone. Amazingly enough, the only obviously problem was the power button. I couldn't power the phone off nor could I do a screen grab. On the whole, fairly minor inconveniences. So, I just left well enough alone and live with it.

Fast forward a couple months later and the power button starts acting up. Randomly 'pressing' itself and trying to power off. After researching the problem in iFixit, I've narrowed it down to the power/sensor cable...I hope.

My Fix

The repair went well. My phone is once again 100% functional. I couldn't be happier.

It took me about 2 hours, but I went SLOWLY and labelled every screw that came off.

My Advice

Flashlight. It may have been poor lighting in my work area. But a flashlight saved my butt a couple times.

One of the screws that holds the power button to the frame is a PITA to get to. I ended up using a really long screw driver to get the right angle. Even then, I really had to bend the cable back covering the screw.

The instructions say you'll need a new speaker. But if you remove the speaker slowly, you can save the adhesive. Also, the stand-off for the proximity sensor has some adhesive on it. If it sticks to the old power cable, use tweezers to transfer the adhesive.

That's it...enjoy1

My Problem

Earpiece speaker stopped working for no apparent reason about 6 months ago. Ended upgrading to the 4s and procrastinated fixing it.

My Fix

Took about 60 minutes or so. The guide was awesome and the huge photos make it very easy to figure out if you're screwing something up. Once I got it installed I turned it back on and it worked straight away. Sold the phone the next day!

My Advice

Be careful when adhering the earpiece speaker using the adhesive. I could tell that if I missed the right spot the connection wouldn't be made and the speaker wouldn't have worked.
