My Problem

My screen shattered pretty horribly so I decided to try and replace the screen myself instead of paying someone.

My Fix

It was tedious and there were a lot of different screw sizes to keep track of. A few of the steps required patience and the comments for different steps of the guide really helped. The different accounts of what other people had experienced warned me of what to expect and how to avoid damage or error.

Overall, it went fairly smooth for my first time and everything worked when I powered it on!

My Advice

Patience. And get a hair dryer for the home button ribbon. That part was hard.

My Problem

Shattered screen, power button was unresponsive.

My Fix

The power button/volume control ribbon cable replacement was tough, I had to take almost everything out of the phone except the headphone jack and lightning connector. The button response is still not great, but it does work if I press firmly after the 'click'.

The replacement screen flickered for about 1 hour after the phone booted up, but the flickering went away and now it is as good a display as the factory original.

My Advice

Use 3 or 4 magnets to sort the miniature screws by size as you remove them. I knew the screws would be tiny, but I hadn't realized there would be 3 or 4 sizes of tiny. I stuck them all to a magnet for safe keeping, but when I was ready to reassemble I couldn't tell a 1.2mm screw from a 1.6mm screw. I had to measure each one with vernier calipers as I reassembled.

My Problem

Dropped my phone and the screen was totally shattered, it's cheaper to self fix and fun

My Fix

It totally works! so scared that it wouldn't. I haven't done anything like this before so it was great and I feel accomplished and my phone works so I can get back in the loop

My Advice

Follow the comments for each step, they're very helpful and definitely use a hair dryer to get the home button ribbon off and to stick back on. Be careful and take your time

My Problem

My screen was shattered. It still worked, but looked terrible.

My Fix

I used a combination of youtube videos to guide me through the repair. It took about 45 minutes total.

My Advice

The most tricky step for me was removing the old screen. I could not get it separated from the body using the plastic tools. I found a tip online that suggested using a razor blade. This worked perfectly for me.

My Problem

Car drove over the iPhone breaking the screen.

My Fix

It was very easy as this was mine 3rd screen replacement

My Advice

Just be care full of the cables , if not plugged correctly you may see some display issues.

My Problem

Cracked display on a phone my son bought for $35.

My Fix

I took it slow and easy. There were a couple of pieces that were a little worrisome putting back on, like the LCD ribbon cable and the whole configuration of the camera piece.

My Advice

I wish I had a camera setup, so that I could take close up photos of some of the pieces in place before I took them off.

My Problem

Had a completely shattered screen on an old iPhone 5 that needed to be replaced.

My Fix

Repair went well, thanks to the guide that ifixit had available.

My Advice

My only advice would be to spring for the full assembly so you don't have to take the time to remove the LCD shield plate, front camera, and earpiece speaker. Not entirely difficult to remove and replace, but somewhat time consuming and it just opens you up to the possibility of, well, screwing something up.

My Problem

I had dropped my iPhone and the fall broke the glass on the phone.

My Fix

After receiving a replacement display from IFIXIT and receiving their detailed step by step online instructions and watching a related video of the same process on fixit.com I decided to attempt the repair. In addition to the tools that I had obtained from an earlier project and using a jeweler's bench mounted magnifying glass with light (absolutely neccesary for me) I was able to repair my phone in about 45 minutes. Could have completed the task quicker but I gave the phone a thorough cleaning during the repair. I am happy to say the phone looks and performs like new. Even with old eyes, I was able to make the repair with relative ease.

Thanks!

My Advice

Be patient and follow the detailed guidance provided by IFIXIT.

My Problem

Battery would not hold a charge and the left side of screen was difficult to text on

My Fix

Good/Great - so far everything seems to be working fine. Followed steps on video and also on web site. After first getting iphone back together the speaker would not work - this was a difficult area to get everything tucked in tight and screwed back together. I went about taking the phone apart again, took time to get springs on speaker touching the two metal dots on speaker cord. Put cover on, tightened up and pushed screen back into place. Worried at first with with white lines running across screen but these lines seem to have disappeared after cycling the phone off and then back on. Speaker works, screen works and battery seems to be holding a charge longer then the 4 hours we were getting.

My Advice

Take your time and don't drink any coffee before hand. I used a giant piece of white paper, made squares for the different parts and taped screws to paper. The screws are SMALL so be careful. I had issues with everything sticking well to phone when trying to pull up. I just took my time, did not pull hard and continued to pry and scrap to get everything off (battery, home button & parts, speaker and parts). I was freaking out at first when I was seeing white lines going across screen but after reading to cycle batter that seems to have fixed that issue. Here is to hoping that the long run my wife will have a phone that works like new again. thanks

My Problem

My girlfriend dropped the phone and broke the screen

My Fix

To lift the screen it's necessary to apply a good amount of force and I was afraid to break it even more. After that it all went smooth right as the guide says.

My Advice

Be careful with the screws. They are really small and not always attach to magnetized screwdriver. I almost lose one.
