My Problem

Had given the phone to a friend and now battery had failed.

My Fix

Repair went flawlessly thanks to the iFixit guide. I could do the next one in half the time.

My Advice

Magnetic pad for holding screws would be a %#*@ fine idea!

My Problem

My battery was not holding a charge at all.

My Fix

The video gave me all the help I needed to replace the battery. Went smooth as silk.

My Advice

The screws are very, very tiny and my eyes are not that good. Should have taken out my contacts or found a magnifying glass. Just have patience and go slow.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 is around 4 years old. The battery wasn't holding a charge well anymore.

My Fix

I referenced a YouTube video showing the replacement. It claimed it could be done in 2 minutes, which is probably right if you do a lot of them. It probably took me around 5 - 10 minutes. I didn't time myself. The iFixIt kit had everything that I needed to get the job done, including the proper screwdrivers for the tiny specialty screws. The screwdrivers are magnetic, which helped keep from losing the tiny screws.

My Advice

I did the work on a large cookie sheet with 1/2" sides so that if I dropped anything, it would be easy to find. I made a mistake in removing one wrong screw and ended up removing a piece that didn't have to be removed, but that was a minor challenge. There was also one tiny screw that was slightly longer than the other tiny screw and I got that one in the wrong place initially when I was putting it back together, but it wasn't difficult to figure out the problem. The new iPhone 5 replacement battery is working much better than my old battery and will hopefully let me delay buying a new phone for another couple of years. Be sure to recycle your old battery as e-waste. Don't put it in the trash. My husband said it was pretty cool to watch me sit down and replace my own phone battery. We got together when I had him over to help me open up a computer and fix it because I was afraid to do it myself 20 years ago. I'm not afraid of electronics anymore.

My Problem

Battery discharging in too short a time.

My Fix

I just followed the video on the ifixit site to change my battery. The most difficult part is unsticking the battery. The important part there is just to take your time. Keep applying pressure to the correct places and move among the three locations. Just keep doing it until the battery frees

My Advice

Have a good magnet handy to magnetize the end of the phillips screwdriver.

My Problem

There was a distortion in my screen from the top to the bottom and mainly on the left side.

My Fix

Once I received my battery and looked at the video, the repair went great. I had previously ordered the wrong battery and had it all apart once so I knew what to do. I already had the kit which worked great and everything fit perfect! My phone is like new again!!

My Advice

Make sure you click on your model number when anyone is looking for a part and don't just think that since it is on the list it is!Wrong, I found that out but I received the correct battery in a few days. Plus I did the repair for about a third of the cost of taking it somewhere to fix it.

My Problem

My battery was going dead in a few hours

My Fix

Like others have said getting the screen off is the hard part. I used a hair dryer to soften the glue under the battery then it came right out.

My Advice

Make sure you use the right screw driver

My Problem

The original battery was swollen and starting to bulge inside of the iPhone 5

My Fix

Without a hitch thanks to the video instructions and repair toolkit

My Advice

I learned to never keep my phone in a charger all the time, which led to the battery problems. Also, if you notice this, by all means do not keep charging it. I could've risked the battery exploding simply out of ignorance.

My Problem

Battery of my iPhone 5 was dying.

My Fix

Replaced battery successfully. The "how to" videos, by ifixit and by another contributor on youbube, were very helpful.

My Advice

It be very helpful IF the "how to" videos can mention that, when pulling out the old battery, the customers need to know that the very delicate "volume flex" cable is right under one side of the battery. No tools should be used close to that edge of the battery. In my case, without knowing the risk, my tool damaged the Volume flex and now volume can not be adjusted any more.

My Problem

The original iPhone 5 battery would not hold a charge.

My Fix

The repair went great! Everything I needed came in the repair kit. This repair was a lot easier than I thought it would be.

My Advice

Watch the videos online. I followed another person's advice and did not take the display all the way. I popped it open and left the display plugged in.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 wasn't holding a charge!

My Fix

I looked up an instructional video and followed it to a t! They recommended fix it.com for parts and further instruction, if necessary.

My Advice

It really was a piece of cake. My goofy sister held the glass, so the computer tape didn't get pinched or pulled. Only advice would be to take your time dislodging the battery you're replacing. You'll need pry it up. Mine was glued down pretty good. Be careful of what you bare against so you don't ruin any controls, etc. I am so jazzed that I was able to fix it! Now to the next project! Good luck ya'll! Lisrrrr
