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

cant afford a new replacement phone

My Fix

repair went fine

My Advice

dont need to remove the battery

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

Display had shattered on a relatively new, 64GB, iPhone 4S. My father-in-law dropped his 64GB, iPhone 4S and it shattered. He replaced it with an iPhone 5. He decided to give it to my son to use essentially as an iPod Touch. Given that it was 64GB, I felt like it was worth $100 to try and fix it given that a 64GB Touch is $400. So I ordered the kit, including the tools to make the repair.

My Fix

The process went great. I used a blank piece of paper and taped down the screws/pieces for each step. It took me a couple of hours but it went great. You guys are awesome! A couple of the steps I had to figure out the notes you guys listed, but all in all it was straight forward and everything works. I really appreciate it!

My Advice

I have a 4S where the power button doesn't work. I ordered replacement parts for this as well. I will tackle this tomorrow. But, if you have a cracked case, these directions worked like a charm and saved about $300 to get an equivalent iPod! Thanks again - iFixit!

My Problem

The Sleep/Power button on my iPhone 4s suddenly stopped working.

My Fix

It was a bit tricky keeping track of all the different screw sizes. Took me a good amount of time and focus, as it seemed the switch I was replacing was the first part to go into the phone. This meant I had to take practically everything out of the phone first before I could get to it.

My Advice

Keep track of all the screws. Be careful not to strip the tiny ones. Work patiently as to not damage the fragile parts inside.

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 power button slowly became less and less responsive until it stopped working all-together.

My Fix

The repair was tedious (took apart the entire phone) but fun. The power button worked perfectly for a few days, but has since become slightly less responsive. Still much better than before though.

My Advice

The power button itself is such a simple part it probably doesn't need to be replaced. I think taking apart the phone and re-seeding the connections is what helped most.

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

Cracked screen and broke audio cable

My Fix

It took a few hours

My Advice

None

My Problem

Power button wasn't working. I just replaced the home button because I thought it would look cool and the phone would already be open so I thought, what the heck, why not.

My Fix

It works better now. Still a couple clicks to get it working but that may also be my cases' fault. The process was pretty difficult and time consuming. The Phillips driver that was sent was so hard to use on the tiny screws inside the phone. I had to use a pocket knife to get most of them. And some screws alone took 10+ minutes to get out. It was pretty stressful but after I got all the screws out, the process and steps were easy to follow.

My Advice

Look for a better Phillips screw driver. A smaller one than the one on this site. And use the YouTube video and written steps. But be careful because they don't take out the screws in the same order. Do it on white paper. Or on a white poster board. Use double sided tape. Place the screws on the tape and label above the tape where you got them from. Or an even better idea if you have any artistic ability. Make a enlarged sketch of the opened phone and place the screws around were you took them from.
