My Problem

After many drops over the couple of years I've had this iPhone4s has resulted in a grey stripe down the side that just kept growing. I've repaired many iPhones in the past so I knew this was the time for a new display assembly.

My Fix

The iFixit guide was very good though I found one place where I suggested an additional note on a camera lens that can easily come lose and get in the way.

My Advice

I think a small set of bins or containers to hold screws as you take them off would be good to seek with every display assembly and tool kit. I think it should be recommended strongly along with the tools.

My Problem

My son's iPod Touch 4th gen. headphones jack didn't work.

My Fix

Everything went (almost) smoothly, a bit nervous at the beginning (both my son and I) but I could relax enough to enjoy the challenge.

My Advice

Be carefull on step 6 when you try to remove the copper cover. It is hold by a tiny piece of plastic snapped into a slot in the cover and can be easily broken (I broke it). Try to pry from well down the opposite side of the spring (where the plastic catch is located) to release the piece, it should spring open.

Don't use too much force, try to figure out how it was assembled and be relaxed.

My Problem

My ipod G4 screen was cracked and falling out; the headphones only worked from one ear bud; home button did not work; and the battery died in 5 minutes.

My Fix

Slow and steady allowed everything to come apart and reassemble as the guides described.

My Advice

My case was also twisted which made the new screen crack after two weeks around the power button. Also, what appears to be unrelated - the power plug became loose and will no longer accepts a charge. I cannot say if that was directly from opening the case or by some gremlin. The replacement home button never did function, even though I could push the interior plunger with my finger nail. And the headphones still only work with one ear.

My Problem

the headphone jack wasn't working so I needed to replace it.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. Thanks for the step by step guide. It helped a lot!

My Advice

The guide was very good. Don't change a thing

My Problem

My son broke off the end of his headphone inside his iPod Touch. Apple does not cover this under there warranty.

My Fix

Went very smoothly. I took about an hour and a half to do the project. My son was really happy that he could how listen to his iPod.

My Advice

Read the directions very carefully. Some times the directions are not perfectly clear. At that time stop and read them again. The directions did mention how to glue the screen back on the body of the iPod. It fits very snug and I found that a few small drops of model car glue did the trick.

My Problem

Headphone jack was just about dead and I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars to replace iTouch. Nearest place that does repairs is over 300 miles away. Give it a shot I say.

My Fix

Everything went perfectly except for the part where I removed the EMI shield. Like many others the ribbon cable to the volume control broke. Solder work is where I draw the line, with four solder points this one goes to the shop.

My Advice

I think that had I pried the EMI shield from the camera end toward the home button the glue would not have caused the ribbon cable to break. The force would have followed the direction of the cable and the cables limited strength would have been reinforced.

My Problem

Connection on headphone jack deteriorated over time until I could only hear a whisper of audio.

My Fix

Went well. Ordered the parts I needed and since it was my first time doing anything of this nature, took it slow and had no problems.

My Advice

The instructions were fine. Didn't feel it was necessary to remove the bronze tap stuff, just flip the flap over and you're gold.

Also, get an ice cube tray and put the screws in in the order of groups you pulled them out, then reverse when putting them back in. These things are TINY. Would have been nice to have a magnetized screw driver tip for this repair. Difficult to get the screw back in for the headphone jack.

My Problem

The tip of my old headphones broke in the jack and I tried getting them out after watching YouTube videos that showed how to using super glue and q-tip. I accidentally glued the piece in forcing me to replace the part if I ever wanted to listen to music again.

My Fix

The repair went well with no mistakes and son after i started I was listening to my music again.

My Advice

Go slow and be careful! You might tear a few ribbon cables if you're not.

My Problem

Quality Apple workmanship [cough] caused my headphone jack to stop outputting sound. I was forced to ride around in the car with the speaker on high while holding the Touch near my ear.

My Fix

Surprisingly straightforward. After opening up the guts, It was just a matter of undoing a single screw and popping the connector off the logic board. Now, the reassembly, on the other hand, was much tougher than I expected.

My Advice

I've seen snowflakes bigger than the screws that hold this thing together. Also, reattaching the LCD cable to the logic board (the last step before re-sealing your Touch) is much more challenging that the guide would have you believe. Keep an extra supply of patience on hand for this step.
