My Problem

L'IPhone ne se rechargeait plus et sous garantie Apple demande 200 € car pour leur technicien la panne vient d'une mauvaise utilisation. Après plusieurs nettoyages au spray spécial contact qui ont permis de retarder le remplacement, l'oxydation de la prise ne permet plus de recharger et le changement est obligatoire.

My Fix

La réparation s'est très bien passée et a duré environ 1h.

My Advice

mes conseils seraient :

Etre au calme avec un bon éclairage (et pour moi avec des loupes sur les yeux).

Faire l'opération à coté de l'ordinateur en faisant défiler au fur et à mesure le tutoriel présent sur Ifixit.com.

Poser les différentes vis et pièces démontées dans l'ordre du démontage dans un endroit propre et stable (Pour ma part j'ai travaillé avec un couvercle de boite d'I-PAD retourné)

My Problem

I was having problems with the lightning connector. To connect I had to pull the cord upwards and around the phone, carefully put my phone down and pray that the connections wasn't lost while charging/transfering data.

My Fix

I ordered the tollkit and the magnetic mat, The tools I needed of course, but I am REALLY happy I ordered the magnetic mat as well. The tiny screws are easilly organized, and I would have been lost without it.

The screws are tiny and I had a constant fear that I had broken something while unplugging different connectors inside the phone. After going through the process and doing it in reverse also (this is where the magnetic mat really comes into play) to put the phone back together, it all worked perfectly without a hitch. It took some time, perhaps a couple of hours. If you plan on doing it more then once I would think this operation can be done easilly within 30 minutes to an hour, once you are familiar with the steps. I was also not sitting comfortably (too low table... I regretted that when I finally sat up from the miniature world I was in) I was also afraid to brake the parts, and this can only be learnt by experience so it can easilly be done much faster then I was working.

I was also constantly checking the video and the online step by step guide (both were essential, but if I where to choose I would use the step by step guide, but crosschecking it to see how the person in the video did the steps was also helpfull).

All in all I was very happy with the repair. For sure I will try all repairs myself from now on.

My Advice

Magnetic mat - essential for me at least to organize screws by steps and size

Good light in work area

Use a table and chair that is comfortable - especially if you are inexperienced, it will take some time for you to complete all the steps, and you don't want to spend 2-3 hours hunched over the TV table :)

Good luck!

My Problem

The lightning connector was damaged and it was really difficult to place the cable and all the time I had to spend 10 minutes to try to find the correct position where my Iphone5 could charge.

My Fix

I bought only the suggested tools to do this repair.

I was very scared at the beginning because, you know, I was repairing a 700 euros smartphone, but everything went very good.

It takes to me more than an hour to do the all fix, both because at the beginning you have to lift the screen and is quite difficult and because the screws are so so small.

My Advice

I did not buy the mat, but it is for sure a good tool for organizing all the pieces, and in particular the screws. Instead I used very small boxes, one for every different size of the screws.

Don't be scared to use you strength when you lift the screen because it is very well fixed.

My Problem

Charging only worked while holding the lightning-connector in the right angle.

My Fix

60 Minutes sunday lazy afternoon work. Since it was my first iPhone-repair I felt quite unsure. Here the video was a great support. Unfortunately not every single screw is shown (e.g. step 19, step 24 or step 31 - rubber-micro-casing). Here came the photo-guide in.

Thanks to ifixit-crew for great support (video and step-by-step-guide)!

My Advice

Buy magnetic map to organze parts and screws.

My Problem

My lightning charging port was damaged. It would have costed me around 118$ to fix it, if anyone else had done it for me.

My Fix

I got the parts after 1 ½ day. I replaced it right after i got the parts. It still works, and i have not had and doesn't think i will get any problems with it.

My Advice

Follow it step by step. Go slow, and compare the old and new part. It's important that the new part is like the old one.

My Problem

The iPhone 5 quit taking a charge

My Fix

Quite a bit of disassembly, but all went smoothly following the guide and using proper tools. All works great now.

My Advice

Take your time and do not mix up any of the tiny screws. There are lots of screws with different lengths. Use a small flathead screwdriver on the standoff screws.

My Problem

My iPhone was only charging intermittently - it would take five minutes each day to find a position in which my phone would charge. This led to my phone running out of battery and my becoming a social pariah. I fixed it because my phone was out of warranty and I didn't want to pay Apple. I'm also a bit reckless when it comes to tech - my fingers never break electronic equipment.

My Fix

Well, the first thing that happened was that I managed to break the camera out of the phone using the phone screen as a lever. That was pretty worrying. After much disassembly and worry when it came to the battery, I managed to put the new stuff in. I hadn't kept the screws sorted and in fact lost one, so now my screws are in position by the maxim 'if it fits, it's ok' and there's one too few holding the screen connector bracket in place. I'm sure it'll be fine.

My Advice

Segregate your screws by size so you know where to get them. Don't cheap out and do buy magnetic screwdrivers. There's a big magnet in the camera and reinstalling screws near it with a non-magnetic screwdriver is just a pain in the neck, takes ages and all kinds of 'noooo i'm breaking my phone!!'

My Problem

My friend said his phone was broken, that he'd had to pick up a new one. "Broken? Broken how?" I asked him. He said he'd butchered the dock connector with an off brand charging cable. "You want it? It's f#@&ed!" "You're not going to be mad if I get it working are you?" "Ha! No, but good luck!"

My Fix

The part arrived really quickly. I love just looking closely at the new part - even the seemingly simple bits are such wonders of miniaturization, and it really does provide a moment to appreciate the wonders of engineering and technology that we carry around with us now everywhere without pausing to think about it. Once the back comes off things look even more amazing, but staying focused is good at this stage - a poorly timed sneeze could send a 1.2mm screw flying never to be seen again! For this repair i used the step by step on the ifixit app and it was great. Follow the steps, keep the screws organized, and be patient. It's sort of exciting of really, doing such major surgery, and the feeling of satisfaction when "the patient" wakes back up is the best!

My Advice

Go slow, have a good system in place for keeping your screws organized, and try not to curse Steve Jobs too harshly for all the glue on the battery - I'm sure it wasn't his decision!

Other advice: it took me a few tries to get the new dock connector piece to seat properly in the phone - not a bad idea to practice getting this in place before you remove the glue backing.

My Problem

unuseful connector

My Fix

successful

My Advice

no
