My Problem

Screen broken.

My Fix

Easy for a first timer

My Advice

1: please note that button ribbon is not inset, but only glued down. I was trying to pry it out unnecessarily.

2: reconnecting ribbons - take your time, it can be a little annoying trying to line up the connectors.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 began acting erratically so, I just upgraded to a iPhone 6 and threw the 5 in a drawer. I saw your website and though I could fix it as a secondary phone in case the iPhone 6 had problems. Plus I travel internationally so it gives me a phone to use out of country by just dropping in a chip.

My Fix

I very carefully followed the instructions and everything appear to go smoothly....however, once the new battery was in it would not take a charge. I got discouraged and considered throwing it away. However, I took the chip out and it took the charge perfectly.....

My Advice

Before you charge the new battery....take out the chip.

My Problem

the battery did not last the day, and in the cold weather in Iceland it died even at 50% charge

My Fix

Had no problem opening up the phone. When putting it back together the touch screen did not work and there where white lines on it. Took the phone once more apart made sure all connections where ok, but after assembly it had the same problem. Until then I had only watched the video on you page but noticed that there where much better instructions further down the page. Studied those and opened the phone once more. Then I noticed that there where 3 connectors on the screen I connected them all. I also found out that the screws where diffrent sizes. After this third assembly the phone was working perfectly. Now the battery lasts almost 2 days and survives the cold!!

My Advice

There are 3 connectors on the screen and there are better instructions than only the video

My Problem

Original iPhone 5 battery had "puffed" and pushed the screen out.

My Fix

Repair was very easy since the phone mostly removed its own screen. Replacing the battery went easily just the few screws to get the old one out and replace them after the new one was in.

My Advice

Stick to the directions on iFixit and everything will go well.

My Problem

Battery wouldn't hold charge for long.

My Fix

Screen came right off with the tool and a little umph. The video was great. Just watch, then pause it as you go through each step individually. The screen wiring harnesses look and feel delicate but they are pretty sturdy. When re-attaching the connectors, align then push down firmly until it clicks. It has to click or you'll be opening it back up again.

My Advice

Work over a towel or special pad to keep the screws from rolling off the work surface if they fall. They are super small. And don't drop the screws in the phone. Also note screws that are different lengths. Check the color coding on the install guide to see which is which.

My Problem

I had to charge my battery three times in a day

My Fix

As shown in the video. it would of been nice that it show the assemblage part.

My Advice

Mount the screen from the top to the bottom.

My Problem

My wife's iPhone 5's screen was bulging on the left side. I suspected this was due to a swelling battery. She uses a battery case which I suspect was overcharging the phone battery. Upon opening up her phone, I confirmed this suspicion.

My Fix

I followed the steps in the guide verbatim and all went well. I have a magnetized mat for keeping track of the screws, but I still managed to lose one. Thankfully, it was one of the screws that holds down the metal panel in the top right, which has three, so losing one was no big deal.

My Advice

The adhesive holding her battery is was quite strong. The guide mentions only prying in certain areas, and you may be tempted to ignore this. Don't. Just be patient.

My Problem

Battery not charging properly

My Fix

Broke the screen trying to put it back on

My Advice

It is ridiculously hard to get the screen off to do the repair. And yes we Watched the video

My Problem

My iPhone 5 is about 3.5 years old. When the charge got below 50%, the phone would shut down. It did not necessarily happen every time at 49%. Sometimes it waited until a lesser charge. But once it got down under 50%, I could not rely on the phone. I took it to the Apple Store, they checked out the battery and said I needed a new battery, for which they would charge $80. They recommended putting that money into a new phone instead. So I began looking for other options and found ifixit.

My Fix

The repair went exactly as shown and described in the video.

My Advice

The most difficult part was getting the phone opened initially. The phone had not been taken apart in 3.5 years, so it was a little tough pulling it apart. However, the prying tool worked very well, and once I had a slight separation between the back and the front, the rest of the repair followed easily.

My Problem

Battery was draining very quickly and our daughter needs her phone for a medical device app.

My Fix

The repair was very easy to complete thanks to the video on your website.

My Advice

No
