My Problem

My power button had stopped working a number of months ago, and after opening up the phone and trying to fix the physical button, I realized it was the power and sensor cable. Then after over 3.5 years with this phone, I unfortunately dropped the phone and shattered the glass display. I ordered a new display and a new power and sensor cable and fixed both. (Also used all the steps in iPhone 4S Power and Sensor Cable Replacement and steps 28-31 of iPhone 4S Headphone Jack Cable Replacement)

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly. The two repair guides were the same until step 26. After that, I had to switch back and forth and ensure that I took out all the appropriate parts in the right order. Replacing the display was a bit more involved as it required carefully removing tiny shards of glass around the power button while keeping the gasket and adhesive at the back of the button in-tact and ready to transfer to the new display.

My Advice

Complete the repairs on a solid color pillow case or other soft surface so that anything that falls is clearly visible and doesn't slide/roll away. Don't have too much coffee or your hands will shake and it'll be impossible to put the phone back together with all the tiny screws and parts. Finally, be methodical and patient!

My Problem

This is the fourth time I've successfully used this guide to fix my iPhone's display. They were all due to dropping and shattering the screen, or due to cheap, knock-off screens failing.

My Fix

Repair has gone smoothly each time, the instructions are great (though one time I missed the part about swapping the speaker grill, oops!) Twice I tried $20 fake replacement screens from Amazon. They worked initially, but one died after a few days, the other developed dead spots (and later shattered in a drop that I don't think would have hurt a real Apple display).

This time I tried a C Stock screen from iFixIt, and it is great! I was worried about getting a C Stock screen because there are no pictures of what they look like, I thought maybe it would be awful, but I thought I'd go ahead and try anyway, since they are so inexpensive. I'm delighted with it! Better than the knock-off screens, looks great, despite some scratches that really aren't that noticeable. See the included pictures.

My Advice

C Stock screens are still great! I was very happily surprised.

Also, a trick I use for these guides is to remove each part and place them in a line on my desk, I even remove the screws in the order they are listed in the text and line those up in sequence as I go. That way, during reassembly, I there isn't any question about what screw goes where, and I don't have to keep track of screw types.

The other thing is read each step carefully! There isn't always a picture for each part, so if you are going by the pictures you might miss something (as I did when I failed to swap out the speaker grill. I didn't notice until the phone was all the way back together. At that point, I was like, "there is no way I am doing that again just for the speaker grill". Well, just days later that crappy screen failed and I had to swap it anyway. I was more careful the second time.)

My Problem

Both my husband and I had old phones that needed new screens because they cracked.

My Fix

We decided that we would turn our old phones into family phones for times that our kids were going to be away from us and communication would be important. Knowing this motivated our 14 year old son to fix them because he and his brother were going to Washington DC without us. My son researched iFixit and determined it was the most reliable website to order a repair kit from. After we ordered it, he promptly took it into his own hands to repair the broken fronts of our phones. He was able to do the job with the detailed videos and now he is a happy camper ... and so is his brother.

My Advice

My son took an egg carton and labeled the holes as he came to a part that needed to come off. He put the part in the hole so as he put it back together, reassembling was a breeze. You could use a muffin tin too.

My Problem

My 2 yr old somehow managed to crack the screen on her toy iphone 4s that was in a lifeproof case.

My Fix

The repair went fairly smoothly. The only challenge that I had was keeping track of the screws and the shields and where they go. I was able to find information online that helped me understand what pieces went where.

My Advice

Take your time and do it right!

My Problem

I did the repair myself because the iPhone is old and I am living abroad. The repair here is expensive.

My Fix

Following the fixit guide.

My Advice

I used small paper bags and labeled them with the steps' number to put screws and components as I removed them. I also magnetised the screwdriver to hold the screws. This worked well

My Problem

Cracked screen

My Fix

Required slow and methodical work, but was not difficult. Instructions were excellent.

My Advice

Loop some white gaffer tape to where the sticky side is exposed and write the step number and screw size on the tape with a permanent marker.

My Problem

My friend dropped her 4S twice and the screen was totally smashed. I was ordering a new display for my own 5S so I offered to replace it.

My Fix

Compared to the 5S repair I did the day before it was more complex, but I actually kind of liked that. I am really getting hooked on fixing stuff, thanks to ifixit. I live in Siberia and there's not too many people repairing phones so I'm even thinking about doing it as a side business. Everything went really smoothly

My Advice

Having the anti-static project tray is totally a must - also I would recommend using ifixit's tweezers, you can keep oils from your hands off the parts very easily that way.

My Problem

Screen was cracked.

My Fix

Screws are very small, but the part worked great.

My Advice

I recommend that you layout the screws on a drawing of the phone, so you know which one came from where.

My Problem

cracked screen

My Fix

Had I taken my time and taken more care when disassembling the phone, I would've spent much less money with this repair. To begin, truth be told, I bought a cheap screen from amazon for the repair. That was my first mistake and it just gets better from there. The cheapo screen from amazon failed right from the get go. Blank white screen, no apple logo and a hard rest and itunes reset did nothing. I ordered a screen from ifixit and begain to dissassemble the phone for the second time. While taking the phone apart for the second time I managed to rip the battery cable and power and proximity sensor flex cable. The latter of which really sucked to replace. Luckily though I managed to find the step by step instructions for all the repairs and reassemble without issues. Believe it or not, the stupid phone started right up with no issues! Everything works perfectly! Thank you ifixit!

My Advice

Pearl of wisdom.... go slow

My Problem

The screen was cracked and the battery was not holding a charge.

My Fix

The repair would have gone better if I wouldn't have tried to rush it. As someone suggested I printed out the step by step instructions and taped the screws and parts to the exact spot on the picture of each step. When I put the new screen on I failed to feed the new cable ribbons all the way thru the slot in the phone and as a result I was not able to plug one of them into the logic board. I had to take it all apart from that point back to the beginning of the reassemble. I was frustrated and I wasn't as careful about keeping track of the screws and parts. I did get it all put back together and it wouldn't power on! I really didn't know what to do. Fortunately I have a spare Iphone that I took the back off of and set it next to the one I was fixing. Looking at both of them I noticed that on one of the two screws that secures the battery connector to the logic board has a gold colored part that consists of a prong that I assume serves as a ground for the battery that makes contact with the back once it is in place. I missed that part when I reassembled the phone. I found the part and on the correct sheet of paper that I had printed out with all of the steps on, attached it to the screw on the battery connector, replaced the back on the phone and the phone powered up and is working perfect!

My Advice

Take your time, don't panic, and be careful as you are feeding the new cables thru the phone. They will plug into the logic board perfectly but you have to make sure that the cables aren't kinked.
