My Problem

I was tossed out of a vehicle by accident while off-roading and landed on my phone. I completely destroyed my screen, LCD, and digitizer. The phone would still ring and vibrate but was useless otherwise. I only had it for a little over a week when this happened and I was devastated.

My Fix

Awesome! It took less than an hour and I couldn't have been happier. Directions were accurate and the photos helped. I am so glad that I was to repair it and get my new phone back!

My Advice

Take your time and check the location of every cable and connector. Don't rush the build or try to use force when reassembling, there are tons of small integrated circuits that you could shear off if you slip.

My Problem

Cracked screen.

My Fix

My first attempt to fix my screen was to replace only the glass. But in the process of removing the glass I perminetly damaged the LCD and I was forced to replace the full front assembly. This process was very straight forward and went off without a hitch. I did end up with one missing screw.

My Advice

The glass is very difficult to remove. I ended up putting the pry bar under the polorized glass instead of just under the first layor of glass. The full assembly instructions were great, no lessons learned there.

My Problem

Broke the glass all the wall through to the screen.

My Fix

Needed to buy a full housing. It went well there were no issues other than needing a dryer to heat up the vibration piece to unstick. and trying not to break the phone when taking the front screen off.

My Advice

Use a dryer to heat up any glued areas! I put the screws and pieces on a towel in the order in which they were removed, so by the time I was putting it back together I didn't need the directions.

My Problem

My niece dropped my mom's Galaxy S4, and the digitizer cracked. I opted to replace the entire front element for my mom with the part that IFIXIT sells.

My Fix

It went well! The hardest part about the disassembly was detaching the USB ribbon that's glued on to the body of the phone, but the plastic opening tools made this entire process a piece of cake. From start to finish, the repair took about an hour.

My Advice

Take your time and keep track of all the parts that are removed from the phone.

My Problem

I do a job where I work in a lot of different customer sites. I happened to drop my phone at a particularly inopportune place/time, and boom. Screen spider-webbed. No problem, it was still working. Worked like that for months. Dropped it once more, and it no longer worked. Screen was completely dead. So I decided to pick up a replacement LCD assembly and go for it. It's cheaper than a new phone would've been.

My Fix

I found the repairs remarkably easy. There were lots of little pieces, so having a small tackle box or something to hold them in would've been a good idea, but I managed even without. All told, assembly+disassembly time was only about 30 minutes. Turned the phone on and the screen worked like a charm. So did everything else, so I must've I managed to get all the parts back in the right place.

My Advice

Use a small magnet to keep track of your screws, or a tackle box as I previously mentioned to keep track of screws+tiny parts you pull out of the phone. It'll save you headaches. If you're clever about it you could even put the parts in the compartments in the order they need to be placed back in the phone - that will save you even more trouble. Also, if you have the means, take a couple of photos while taking the phone apart, so you have something to compare against as you reassemble.

My Problem

My lcd cracked at work, but not the glass. I needed a quick fix!

My Fix

I have done repairs in the past and this was the easiest. I did the screen replacement, obviously.

My Advice

Get the quick shipping. Your phone is almost essential these days. I also switched colors! Kinda cool :)

My Problem

I smashed my phone between myself and a car I was working on. I usually leave my phone in my shop toolbox but I had it in my pocket from lunch. I was trying to be nice and help a customer and I ended up completely destroying my phone. Black screen, cracked glass, no picture.

My Fix

The repair was easy as putting lego's together. I ordered the whole front half for my s4 and got overnight shipping. It arrived right on time and I was easily able to put my phone together. The video ifixit has on youtube helped me take it apart and put it back together. I have to say well done on ifixit's part.

My Advice

I wish ifixit was a bit cheaper though. My local store wanted to charge me 280 for them to do it, the part on here is 225 and after overnight shipping it was about 260, so i only really saved 20 bucks and about a week worth of time for them to hold onto my phone. Honestly I would have thought the part would be cheaper seeing as ifixit isn't fixing it, I am.....
