My Problem

the button was very hard to turn on. Had to hold down the button very firmly.

My Fix

not well

My Advice

Yes. I was very please with the engagement of advice from Ifixit and online help. But, unfortunately has not resolved the issue at this point.

My Problem

The button was no longer "clicky" hence my ordering this kit.

My Fix

Overall, the guide was pretty straightforward, but getting the earpiece speaker to stay in place and the logic board to seat properly in the case during reassembly were the two most time-consuming steps.

It was quite the feeling of relief and empowerment when I hit the power button to start up the iPhone and everything worked after reassembly.

My Advice

The guide needs to include a pointer about the small rubber bumper on the edge of the logic board (protector for display cables) as mine came loose before I could see where it came from. It is mentioned in the comments but should be in the main guide.

Also, the #00 screwdriver did not have a narrow enough tip to fit the screws so I had to find an eyeglass screwdriver.

My Problem

When I was replace the screen , I feel like I must need to repair power and sensor and cellular antenna

My Fix

It went well I watch the helpful ifix it.com video

My Advice

Good luck and watch video is help ! Remember every iphone carries has some thing different.

My Problem

Home and power button failure

My Fix

If you take your time and have proper tools, everything will go fine. This was mostly simple for me as I have a background in repairing electronic devices.

My Advice

Use proper tools

Have lots of lighting

Work on a hard, stable surface

Be gentle. The parts are small and delicate

My Problem

Both my daughter and I had iPhones with batteries that would not last the day. 30% by 2:00pm. Six screws in less than 10 minutes and I had both batteries replaced.

My Fix

Great. Easy to complete.

My Advice

Use a dishcloth as your work surface. It will help you keep from loosing those tiny screws if you drop one.

My Problem

The home button has not worked well since I got the phone. Over the last year, it got worse. Unable to wake the phone with the home button. Took too many tried for the phone to realize when I did press the button. The power button also stopped working on one side. Could only depress one end of the button.

My Fix

The repair overall went very well. I used the guide just as the name suggests, as a guide. It was for reference. I took my time and took it one step at a time. I have worked with many things, but the numerous small parts did have me a bit nervous. It took me under three hours to replace the power button assembly/cable and the home button. I did not pull the display cable/ connector far enough when putting back together and had to undo the 10 screws holding the display to the case the first run.

My Advice

I would not have tried to remove the earpiece from the power cable while in the phone. Upon review, I would have removed the cable and gently separated the adhesive holding the foam/earpiece from the cable on a flat surface. It would have been much easier and kept me from ripping a small piece of foam. I wish I would have paid more attention when buying parts and grabbed an extra foam seal. All seems to be fine regardless with no issues at this time.

I was able to completely replace the display for a coworker in under an hour having already taken my phone to that basic level as well. Experience having done it once definitely made it much easier. I would note that there is a plastic piece around the front camera and the little grill for the earpiece should be removed and put on the new display if not already there.

I did not take pictures, but I can say that I am extremely happy that my phone is better than when I got it!! I was also very happy to help my coworker out. He watched me take his phone apart and put it back together. He was amazed and relieved that I did it instead of him! Thank you, iFixit, for such a great and informative sight! Give me good instructions and the correct tools and I believe I can fix just about anything!! Great work!!

My Problem

One day a few weeks ago, my iPhone 4's power button stopped working. I researched the issue and came across ifixit.com. I ordered the parts I needed and some tools and decided to give it a go doing the repair myself.

My Fix

The repair was successful, though quite tricky with all of the tiny components. During the process and my previous replacement of the headphone jack a week earlier, I discovered a small inconsistency in the provided instuctions. Step 4 shows the grounding clip secured by a small screw. However every subsequent picture shows the 4.8 mm standoff near the headphone jack above the grounding clip. Then in Step 16, the second picture shows the standoff under the removed grounding clip. Nowhere in the instructions is there a step to remove the screw. As a result, I ended up with an extra screw at the end and had to review instuctions. Finding the discrepancy, I removed the standoff and grounding clip and then replaced the standoff with the grouding clip above it and then the screw to secure the grounding clip. This inconsistency appears in at least several of your Verizon iPhone 4 guides as they seem to use the same pictures.

My Advice

See above regarding picture discrepancy. Also, it was virtually impossible to remove the earpiece speaker without tearing the foam adhesive securing it to the iPhone. I would suggest including a new foam ring with the replacement Power Button Cable.

My Problem

My power button wouldn't work. I would press it, never feel a click and never could lock or turn off my phone.

My Fix

It was time consuming, yet mostly successful. The 2 screws that hold the power button against the case were the most difficult for me to screw back in. I actually lost one in the process... but I put it together with the screw closest to the outer edge out. Hopefully it can survive without it or at least until I can find a replacement screw.

My Advice

I took my time. It's a stressful feeling for me not to have my primary source of communication for a temporary time, even if just for 3 hours. But my mentality was taking my time and doing it right (or mostly right), otherwise I would have been without it for much longer than 4 hours if I damaged something more serious than losing a screw.

ALSO, I was using a guide for a non descriptive "iPhone 4." I have a Verizon iPhone 4... so in the last few steps of the guide I was using, I was getting frustrated that I couldn't follow along... turns out there is a corresponding guide that was specifically written for the CDMA version. So if things aren't going smoothly, look for an alternate guide.

My Problem

Apple store wanted $150 to fix the problem. Ifixit provided enough detailed instruction which allowed me to do it myself.

My Fix

It worked! It took me about 1.5 hours, but I took my time not wanting to make any mistakes.

My Advice

Have a magnifying glass available. keep track of your screws and parts you remove. I drew a simple map of the screw locations and placed the screws on the map to help with reassembly.
