My Problem

The ear piece volume was greatly reduced. Had to use speaker phone for calls

My Fix

Almost perfect. I put it all back together and the center of the display would not respond to touch. Took it apart again and found the piece of black tape in step 22 got into the socket of the digitizer plug (it must have gotten stuck to the tweezer when I restuck it down. Put it back together and it's fine. Ear piece volume perfect. Thanks

My Advice

Take a few pictures as you go so you can zoom in to see more detail. Also use some sort of a magnifier to enlarge the work being done, I bought an inexpensive hood type that fits on my head. There are a few YouTube videos out there that complement the ifixit instructions. I hate when I'm forced to upgrade (I'm using the original OS too) THANKS ifixit!!!!

My Problem

The power button in the iPhone 4S wasn't working and the earpiece speaker when I stopped working

My Fix

both repairs failed. The button itself wasn't the issue it was the part that pushed up against it and the speaker didn't work out either. The button itself is just a hard piece of metal no issue with it and the speaker I don't know what's going on there.

My Advice

save your money and just invested in the new phone

My Problem

Cracked panels, front and back. Bad ear piece speaker, bad power button

My Fix

The repairs went extremely easy considering I have never repaired any type of phone. I purchased an IFIXIT tool kit from Radio Shack. That is how I found you guys. My parts came in on time and repairs took place. One phone I had to only replace the back panel, super easy. The other phone had some serious issues. I could not believe I had the phone in what seemed to be a million little pieces. I had to install a new sensor cable, which I’m really glad I order because that's why the power button was not working. I had to replace the ear piece speaker to. Somehow it came apart and the cooper coiling was unraveling. I put the phone back together and its works great. Looks and sound brand new. It took about a total of three hours for both phone repairs. Now if I had to do it again I could in less than an hour. Your pictures and step by step instructions are the bomb!! The only thing I can think that would help is; on the photos you color code the screws but the screw heads are not. So when that sucker is in a million pieces those little Minion screws are all looking alike. So maybe a screw set with the same color code would be freaking AWESOME!! I would have gladly paid for them. That is what slowed me down. All in all I give you guys an A+

My Advice

Keep up the great website!!!

My Problem

1.The speaker had fine steel chips in it, that caused it to loose its' volume.

2. The back was badly scratched on the camera lens.

My Fix

1. I used the 4, 4 CDMA, and the 4S pictorials. It was not necessary to remove the on / off switch.

2. The new back was exceedingly tight, to slide all the way into place.

Well! It fired up correctly the first time.

My Advice

Maybe to put an ink mark on the clip that coverts the camera, so you remember the direction it fits in.

My Problem

Could not hear incoming calls.

My Fix

The guide is perfect and made the job super easy.

My Advice

Do it yourself don't pay anyone for the labour.

My Problem

I had replaced the front panel assembly before on this device and sometime in that I assumed I must have messed up the ear speaker during that. For awhile I just lived with it and used speaker phone or a headset but the time came to trade it in to the store for an upgrade and I had to get everything working again.

My Fix

Easy repair and the iPhone works great now!

My Advice

I found the iFixit repair guide a little hard to follow at the end when you're actually pulling out the ear speaker. I looked around online and found this video: http://youtu.be/AE2jj7dpIrY by a British group. They use a different method than shown by iFixit and that worked great for me.

My Problem

Part 1 was replacing the broken screen, but after I put it back together and turned it over I remembered that the home button does NOT come with the kit. I was not about to take that whole thing apart again without an other reason. Just so happens that the power button was not working and I could not fix it in part 1 of the repair.

My Fix

I bought the kit and did this repair in part 2. I was a pro at it by now.

My Advice

Here are some tips for the first timers.

1. Find the DirectFix.com videos on how to replace the screen and then this power strip. They are excellent.

2. Use a magnet sheet to hold the screws. I used the back of one I had on the fridge.

Good luck.

My Problem

Speaker went out

My Fix

I was successful but forgot a part and had to disassemble

My Advice

lay out a large piece of paper and label parts by step. If you can afford it get the magnetic mat. Wear nitrile gloves so you don't have to clean the connections.

My Problem

Powerbutton defect

My Fix

The repair went well, following the repairmanual from iFixit. The most tricky part was when I came to the step of replacing the sensorcable itself.

My Advice

Use time to study the fotos at iFixits step by step and look for the position of the cable when you separate it
