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.

My Problem

Ma copine a laissé tomber son téléphone et l'écran était craqueler de partout, venant s'ajouter un problème de batterie elle se vidait à vu d’œil et surchauffe.

My Fix

Et bien ayant eu la frayeur de ne pas réussir pendant toute la procédure de démontage, en passant les vices sont si minuscules wow, la peur de casser les connecteurs et de ne pas avoir bien remis la caméra frontal c'était intense.

My Advice

Je crois qu'il n'y a rien à rajouter, les instructions sont claires. Foncé! c'est tout au final assez simple le démontage.

My Problem

Screen had lines/"streaking" on the bottom half and also a green splotch on the left side.

My Fix

Success. Definitely a "varsity" repair job, especially the parts where you have to switch the front-facing camera/earpiece/home button from the old screen to the new one.

My Advice

Good lighting, a contained area (to avoid losing small pieces), and patience are required. To get the Home Button Ribbon Assembly off (with the two gold "buttons"), I ended up using a very small & sharp safety pin in order to gently pry up the edge of the ribbon so that I could get the plastic opening tool under it. The risk of ripping the ribbon is probably greatest here, so be very slow & deliberate and don't rush things. Also, take a good look at the position of the black plastic spacer (Step 14) before it comes out so that you can see how it will go back in. Note that you probably won't actually see the spacer until you remove the entire speaker assembly, since the spacer sits underneath where the top screw goes.

My Problem

Cracked screen, phone dropped one too many times and didn't have proper protective case on at the time.

My Fix

Went smoothly with iSlack to take the phone apart. Why do you have to keep updating your phones with more and more Glued parts thought, Apple?

My Advice

Take is slowly and be patient with the heat bag on the glue components, along with the removal of the parts. They are very, very delicate.

My Problem

Screen was shattered.

My Fix

The guides made it super easy to fix the screen!

My Advice

IFixit knows what they are doing!

My Problem

I am hard on phones. I use Lifeproof cases. I dropped my phone into 10f t. of river water and successfully recovered it, and it still worked! Then I tempted fate again and slammed my iPhone into a concrete wall when it flung out my hand at work. Thats when the screen cracked.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. I referenced the iFixit video and other videos. Magnetized tools that come in the kit are essential. Took me about an hour. Phone works like a charm!

My Advice

One of the most difficult tasks was removing the broken LCD screen. The most effective tool for the job was a clean razor blade. It allows you to gain initial leverage between the metal casing and the screen without any damage. Then immediately switch to the plastic tool to pry the rest of the screen away. I also recommend doing the work on a tray that you can lay all the screws and parts on to remember exactly where they go. The screws are all different lengths!

My Problem

Problem: Broken screen

Solution: Order display only (not camera or home button)

My Fix

FAIL. The iFixit guide for display replacement stopped short of removing the old camera/earpiece/home button, so I had to wing it. When trying to scrape the home button off my old display, I must have broken the connection, so my home button didn't work after the repair. I figured I would try to see if I just needed to clean or reposition the contacts, but all the removing and reassembling eventually caused me to crack the new display. Now I'm ordering another display, but this time with the home button.

My Advice

1) get the full assembly with the front facing camera and home button.

2) be VERY careful working with an unbroken screen - they break easily. If it's not going in easily, check for burrs on the aluminum frame and sand them down if they might be causing the display to stick.

My Problem

The phone was accidentally left on the the bumper of a truck and it fell off and was run over. The screen took a beating but the case saved the rest of the phone. The screen was still working and usable. There were however several cracks and chunks were missing from the screen.

My Fix

I ordered the iPhone 5 display assembly kit only. It didn't have the front facing camera, ear piece, light sensor, or home button. The device arrived in a couple days to my home in California. I unboxed it and it was expertly packed.

I unboxed all the pieces and laid everything out on a micro fiber cloth. I like to use the micro fiber because it holds all the little pieces and won't scratch the device. I reviewed the repair procedure and it was pretty straight forward after you remove the two bottom screws. Most difficult part (not really but it was a challenge) was getting the suction cup to stick to the packing tape used the keep the screen from further cracking. After the screen was lifted from the bottom it was just a matter of releasing the rest of the tabs and freeing the damaged screen from the case. I was careful along the way not to pull to hard to prevent any of the delicate ribbon cables from tearing. Don't try to rush taking the broken screen out. Take is slow and easy.

Transferring the missing components was just as easy. The camera, light sensor and earpiece are installed in a way that makes it hard to mess up. Take your time. The home button took a little finesse since there is a mild adhesive holding the button on the display.

After all the components were installed onto the new display. Installation was the reverse of dis-assembly. Taking care not to damage the plastic tabs at the top of the screen. That needs to be inserted first, the the rest of the screen can be snapped into place, then the two screws can be secured.

In about 20 min the new screen was in place and operational.

My Advice

Keep track of those tiny screws and the order in which they were removed. They may look the same but some are different.

The closer you place the suction cup to the home button the easier it would be to opening up the case. Using a couple layers of a thick packing tape makes removing the cracked screen simpler. Try not to get any packing tape down the sides of the phone when taping the screen. I had a little sliver hanging down the side and it prevented the screen from releasing easily.

The pry tool is your friend, use it. Don't try to muscle the screen out of the case. Getting the screen off the case is the hardest part after that your home free.
