My Problem

My Iphone 5s developed a microphone issue after a few months of use. I couldn't be heard when making a phone call unless I used my speakerphone. I tried dealing with my cellphone carrier on a repair or replacement as it was under warranty. They sent me a "like new" replacement however this "new" phone had more problems then my original. They said they had to work out the replacement phone issues with Apple Care next, otherwise there is nothing else they can do for me. To make a long story short, I told them to pound sand and returned the replacement phone and switched back to my iPhone 4s for the time being. One day I decided I really want to get back to my 5s so I looked into repairing it and found this website.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The step by step guide was a big help, wouldn't have tried it without it. The guide was missing a couple steps at the end of the tear down however. There are two more parts that need to be removed from the original lightning connector and headphone jack assembly. There is a small bracket that the home button connection is glued to that has to be removed and installed on the replacement, and the microphone has a small rubber boot around it that has to removed and installed over the replacement microphone. Likely through my research another reviewer point this out so I didn't miss it. Otherwise the repair went just fine with the guide. I was a little mad that the required flat headed screwdriver was mentioned in the guide but not included in the required tools list. I was able to make a screwdriver I had work but I would have liked to have the right size for the job. The only mistakes I had were I got a connector that was next to the battery stuck under the logic board when I was reassembling and didn't notice until I had the board all screwed down. So I had to removed the logic board twice but likely there was no damage. I also had a hard time getting the home button reconnected as the small amount of adhesive wouldn't stick after being removed from the original connector. And I couldn't for the life of me get the securing clip for the home button connection to hook on to the metal hooks on the backside of the connector. I could only snap it in the front which with a little pull pops it out. I spent a good hour trying to hook this clip and ended up just snapping it in the front and putting the phone back together. Not too worried as everything is pretty tight in the phone and its not coming apart again unless something else dies. Overall, I'm glad I decided to purchased the parts and tools and make the repair. Phone is working just like new now.

My Advice

My advice would to purchase all the required tools mentioned in the guide including the flat head screwdriver (2.5mm?). The screws are UNBELIEVABLY small and need these designed magnetic screwdrivers to make it work. Also you will be wise to lay out the steps requiring removal of parts and screws on a piece of paper with some clear or white tape to stick the small parts to so you don't lose them during the repair. Also helps you lay out the screws in order so you don't mix them up when it comes time to reassemble. The website sells a magnetic white board for this purchase if you are only doing the one repair then so some paper and tape work just fine. Also I would advise to just take your time and don't force anything. It took me probably 5 hours from start to finish with 1 hour wasted with trying to hook that clip securing the home button connection. The only thing I wished I had known before I did the repair was about needing the flat head screwdriver, partly my fault as it was mentioned in the guide but wasn't in the tools list so I didn't purchase it, next time I will buy it.

My Problem

That was my eldest kid's phone which had a broken lightining connector and a unnusable camera. I got the chance to change the old battery for a new one too, since it had almost 3 years of use.

My Fix

It was relatively easy to open and disassemble the iPhone, though I had some trouble to reassemble it. I had to reopen the phone cause the digitizer cable wasn't correctly connected, but in the end everything went perfect.

My Advice

Please pay strict attention to the disassemble steps, lest you can get caught with cables you don't know where to connect. And would be important to alert people that the spare parts are different from the originals.

My Problem

Charger stopped working.

My Fix

Repair took about 30 minutes. Everything was by the instructions. My only problem was getting the antenna connector back on. Finally snapped in.

My Advice

Easy repair, which saved the cost of a new phone. Checked online and there are many sites with less expensive replacements. Reading the reviews however, it seemed like a lot of people had some kind of trouble afterwards. Decided to spend the extra $ to get an actual S4 part.

My Problem

I had a battery issue in my MacBook Pro. I removed the battery using the tri-point and a few hours later, my girlfriend who is attending college 6 hours away informed me that she had a battery issue in her MacBook, too. I decided to ship the screwdriver I had to her so that she could use it at her leisure and order me a new one.

My Fix

Since it was a battery issue and since it was Apple, I ended up making an appt with the Genius Bar to get an OEM battery straight from Apple. The only way that I am aware of to get my hands on an OEM battery. When you pay more than $2,000 for a laptop, I don't want an $80 knock-off damaging it. The repair ended uneventfully...after waiting a week for an appt that suited me, they replaced it for $125.

My Advice

Everything went pretty smooth. The Apple store was understanding. I had to remove the battery to get the laptop booted back up so I could take an image of my hard drive. The end-result was mostly, I had to get my data and send my tri-point to my girlfriend...so I bought myself another one. Advice, by two of these if you have more than one MacBook in your circle :)

My Problem

My phone would only keep a charge for 2 hours and would go dead. My home button had to be pressed several times to work.

When I saw the ifixit website and how easy the instructions were to repair, I thought I need to try this.

My Fix

The repair went great! The instructions were given step-by-step and were so easy to follow. The tools that I order were very inexpensive and worth the purchase. I now have a phone that will last me a lot longer and I paid a fraction of would it would have cost to do an insurance claim or send it somewhere to be fixed.

My Advice

Watch the instructions carefully before you start the step-by-step process. Make sure the screws that you take out are put on a piece of paper that is labeled as to where you took these screws out. That way you will not get mixed up to which screws go where.

My Problem

Ear piece speaker did not work due to moisture corrosion

My Fix

Step by step instructions were spot on.

My Advice

This unit has some moisture damage and Apple quoted $315 for repair. This $25 repair fixed it all.

I did have to remove some corrosion from the speaker connector but an eraser on the end of a pencil took care of that, followed up with some alcohol to clean it off. Plugging the connectors back onto the main board can take a couple of tries. Be patient and it will all go fine.

My Problem

Fractured display College "cleaning" accident....

My Fix

Smooth, great reassembly tips - 45 minutes and looks like new!

My Advice

Read the guide, all the way through...

My Problem

En dormant, j'avais malencontreusement cassé l'écran de mon MacbookPro Retina 13", il était au fur et à mesure devenu tout noir, impossible de l'utiliser sans un écran externe.

My Fix

Cela a prit en tout et pour tout 20min.

Le tutoriel est très bien expliqué, je conseille tout de même d'acheter le matériel de démontage avec.

My Advice

Commander sur iFixit, le produit est très bien conditionné, commandé le Lundi soir, le tout m'est parvenu le jeudi matin. C'est juste parfait.

My Problem

The phone would not hold a charge for the whole day after 2 years of daily use

My Fix

The instructions on the Ifix website are very good. The iphone worked after the 1st fix, but wouldn't charge or connect via iTunes. Thought there was a problem with the lighting connector part, but it never gave any problems before, like dirt inside the external contact area. After making sure all connectors I touched were really in place and still getting a no charge problem, I looked at a video to see what it would take to replace the lighting connector part. The connector for the lighting port is right next to the battery connector. I reconnected that connector and the IPhone was fixed after that. It now charges and connects to iTunes.

My Advice

I would add the connector names in a couple of the repair photos, and maybe add that it's possible to partly disconnect an adjoining connector inadvertently as there are so many packed together.

My Problem

Battery became first inaccurate, then slowly wouldn't stay powered on off a charging cord.

My Fix

iSclack made opening the screen really easy, and everything else went smoothly save the elastic strips that holds the battery.

The guide says to cut the black tab between the two white strips, and then to pull them straight up as you move it down the side of the battery.

Well, being elastic strips, they snapped. Had to use the card to pry the battery of. That was slightly harrowing, but it eventually came off. After that, the new battery worked like a charm.

My Advice

Back up your phone before doing the repair. Ensure that is is an ENCRYPTED back up or certain apps etc won't actually be backed up.
