My Problem

My iPhone 5c become to lost connection and didn't charge. 2 of my 3 cables don't recognized by phone.

My Fix

I fix it. Tomorrow I was got my packet from ifixit.com with lightning assembly and today my iPhone 5c can charge again.

And I would like to tell you several words about a process:

Thanks Ifixit for the tools - pentalope screwdriver and a magnet mat - it was great

All was simple with a step by step instructions on site.

All the parts are very small - a magnifying glass required)))

I was made it for 1 hour )))

My Advice

1. Important!!!! There is unnecessary to remove a battery before the Lightning assembly replace - it's possible without this step)))

2. Don't forget to remove a rubber head from an old microphone - new hasn't such part.

3. Don't forget to lay an antenna cable properly when install a speaker back.

My Problem

The home button contact on the phone broke a spring contact.

My Fix

It was laborious and tricky. It took some finesse. Patience was required. I had to take the new one out a couple of times to adjust here and there.

My Advice

Be gentle. The parts are fragile.

Be patient. Give yourself a couple hours to do it.

Be observant. Look at how the old part was in before replacement.

My Problem

My lighting port iphone was faulty and the cable wouldn't fit snugly into the iphone. Because of this, the connection was unreliable and would constantly disconnect. The only way to get a good connection I would have to put the cable in a certain position. I knew it wasn't a problem with the cable since I tried a brand new one and had the same problem. I decided to replace the lightning port on the phone and since the phone was over a year old I decided it would be a good idea to replace the battery while I had the phone taken apart.

My Fix

I ordered the battery kit which included the tools. This was worthwhile since it included all the tools I needed for the repair. It was a better value to purchase the battery repair kit instead of purchasing the battery on its own.

Repair went very well. Just following the repair guide closely made everything very simple. Make sure you keep all screws organized in a logical order. You do not want to put the wrong screw back in the wrong place. Battery was a little difficult to remove. Be careful you do not tear the adhesive strip when removing it! Fortunately I had already decided to replace the battery so I wasn't too worried about damaging it during the removal.

Installing the new parts was simple enough. Take your time and follow the instructions closely! When I got the new parts installed and the phone back together, I tried to boot up the phone and nothing appeared to happen! I noticed that the display was dimly lit so I figured there must be something wrong with the display connectors. I removed the display connectors and made sure they were properly seated and pushed down firmly on them. This did the trick and the phone booted no problem. Screen was flickering a bit but that soon went away. Just turn your screen brightness down until the flickering stops and then you can gradually increase the brightness later.

Now the lighting connector works great and the battery holds it's charge much longer! Feels like a new phone again!

My Advice

Just follow the instructions very closely and take your time. Keep the screws and parts organized in the order that you remove them.

My Problem

Lightning connector was bad (short) - so just replaced it.

My Fix

Smooth

My Advice

For a tech this is easy - and even for a novice, if you follow the video and be patient, you should be fine. I think my only issue with IFIXIT is the cost of the parts - they are a bit higher... but I know I can depend on them and customer service if there is an issue..

My Problem

iPhone was not charging

My Fix

This the first time I ever opened a cell phone. I replaced the connector the charger worked, but the phone kept searching for the WiFi. I realized that I probably should have taken off the blue protectors before I put the new connector and maybe this was why the WiFi did not work. The directions did not mention any thing about those protectors. I took it apart again and foolishly when I pried the battery connector off with a metal screw driver there was a spark. I took off the blue protectors, reassembled it and it was totally dead. I must have shorted something out. My bad.

My Advice

Always use a plastic spurger.

Please edit the directions to tell newbies to remove the thin protector things prior to reassembly
