My Problem

The battery life between charges was getting short

My Fix

After watching the ifixit video and ordering the part I was able to change the battery in less than 10 min. and it was just as it was shown on the video no problems.

My Advice

watch the video and there should be no problems

My Problem

From a previous order at iFixit, I purchased a new screen and home button assembly for an iPhone 5 that shattered and caused the screen to pop out slightly. I had an "apple pro" screwdriver kit, so I figured the pentalobe was in there, but it wasnt. So after installing the new screen successfully, it was just kinda dangling there until I could get the pentalobe screws out.

My Fix

when I first tried to unscrew the screws, it felt like I received the wrong size screwdriver. However, I took a deep breath, and realized that you have to be right on point and use firm but steady pressure to make the screwdriver "bite" into the screw. 10 minutes later, I had the whole assembly back together and buttoned up. Thanks IFIXIT

My Advice

patiences, firm, steady pressure, and keep the screwdriver level with the phone.

My Problem

Total blackout. After a popular "waterproof" case failed while snorkeling on vacation, threw my phone in a bag of rice and took it to a repair guy, the phone worked again after an ultrasonic isopropyl bath. But, it was never the same, it suffered a slow and painful death within the next 6 months poor battery performance, loss of volume and power button function, and screen sensitivity issues.

My Fix

Great! I am no iphone pro. But knew my way around tiny electronics. Had it back together in little over an hour.

My Advice

Get the screw placement placard, keeps you organized when you get into the guts. Love my Ifixit tools.

My Problem

Was having intermittent charge and sync issues with My 4S Doc Connector.

My Fix

Repair was easy with the pictorial repair guide from the website. 1 hour or so is all it took. This was my first repair for this phone.

My Advice

Lay out and tape a big piece of white paper (24" x 24" )to a flat work surface. The tape is so you don't have to worry about catching the paper and shifting all the little screws around by accident. As you take the parts out write on the paper size Ie 1.2mm Phillips etc. and description of part. There is plenty of room to keep the parts separated to help ease any confusion of similar looking screws.

My Problem

The factory Seagate 3tb hd died.

My Fix

The iMac opening tool was perfect and the adhesive strips are top quality. The little blue tabs made it very easy to strip of the backing. They are also cut to fit perfectly, unlike the generic strips some companies sell.

My Advice

I used an HGST enterprise 4tb drive. I've had great luck with the HGST drives. This machine has the Fusion drive. Disk Utility recognized the new drive and automatically reconfigured the Fusion to the new drive. No command line required.

Also used the OWC cable to enable the iMac to get drive temp to properly control fan speed.

My Problem

Vertical lines on the screen on my 4s.

My Fix

Replaced the screen assembly, I needed to turn all but two screws in my phone. Mostly smooth, I pulled a little too hard on the upper mic cable (part of the headphone jack assembly) without enough prying and tore the cable. After he parts come in for that I need to open it again. Minus my mistake, everything else went perfectly.

My Advice

iScrews tray, Anti Static tray, and a professional pentalobe screwdriver are essential.

My Problem

My home button on my iPhone 5 completely broke off. I was unable to use the device after.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. It's truly amazing what can be accomplished when you have the right tools for the job. "ifixit" provided everything I needed to get the home button replaced and I did it in the comfort of my own home.

My Advice

My advice would be to get the right tools the first time and save yourself the hassle and frustration. Getting the job done right with no hiccups is key and very rewarding.

My Problem

After 31/2 years, our battery life on our 2 iPhone 4's was getting pretty short

My Fix

I did the replacements one phone at a time in case anything went wrong, but the first battery install went so smoothly that I did the 2nd phone shortly after

My Advice

I found that when I remove the battery connector gently the antenna shield stayed in place and I didn't have to worry about it

My Problem

My battery of my MacBook pro and the charge port of my iPhone 5

My Fix

I started with my Macbook pro that was simple. Then came the nurve racking part my iPhone 5. This is my daily driver and can't really afford a new phone at the moment. I was a little bit nurvese but I went foward and did my best. Taking the logic board was the hardest part. Second came putting the screen back.

My Advice

There are some parts of the charge port that you need to transfer that the guid does not tell you. Like the grounding wire that goes around the headphone jack. The little fome that is around the mic

My Problem

Rear camera stopped responding, black screen only and frozen. Front camera still working fine. Tried hard resets, etc. Replaced the camera and now all is good again. works like new.

My Fix

Fine, followed the guide and all went well. However, there should be a note about bending the flash cable on the new camera.

Only problem was the 00 phillips from ifixit was too big, needed to get a smaller jewellers phillips.

My Advice

Be prepared to bend the flash cable and attache the flash module to the replacement camera.
