My Problem

Dropped ipod and the screen cracked up the middle.

My Fix

My brother has repaired his girlfriends and his daughter's phones. Both had cracked screens. He pointed me to ifixit, I got the screen/digitizer and he replaced it no problem.

My Advice

Going to get a screen protector, case. Really. Thanks!

My Problem

Broken screen!

My Fix

Perfect!

My Advice

Nope! Everything went great!

My Problem

Completely shattered glass

My Fix

First off, the suction cups plan for removing the glass is flawed when there are a million pieces from the accidental drop. You should include instructions for piece by piece broken glass removal. OK, then all went fine. But the re-connecting of that smallest of data ribbons took 45 minutes of re-try, re-try, re-try. I was wishing I had my 3 y.o. grandson's tiny fingers. Very tight & precise task. Then, my soul reason for purchasing the camera kite was because the glass lens was broken.... but it's not included in the iFixit purchase?

My Advice

If your glass is shattered in many pieces, don't waste time with the stupid suction cup tool. Just warm up with the hair dryer and start prying the many pieces out. Also, be prepared for a struggle re-connecting the smaller (middle) data ribbon onto the back of the LCD... especially if you have large clumsy auto mechanic fingers. Calls for patience and deep breathing. Other than that it's a smooth simple job.

My Problem

My iPod had a cracked screen and was deteriorating quickly.

My Fix

I went well thanks to the clear pictures and instructions.

My Advice

Would like to have a section called "things to watch for". I inadvertently disconnected the wifi cable and did not discover this until the iPod was fully reassembled. I had to disassemble, correct this issue and reassemble. Had I known the wifi cable was so small and near the area of interest, I would have exercised more caution and checked all cables prior to assembly. This would have saved me 30 minutes.

My Problem

I took an iPod 6th gen apart to repair the on/off button but I ruined the LCD screen getting it off so now I needed a new LCD screen. I could not find a 6th gen LCD so I tried a 5th gen LCD screen.

My Fix

The repair went fine. It was a little tricky to get the LCD cables of the new unit plugged in correctly. The 5th gen LCD worked fine in the 6th gen unit.

My Advice

Be careful when removing the LCD. Had I known to use heat to loosen the LCD I may not have ruined it in the fist place. Also, pry the screen up on the end with the home button. Don't start in the middle of the LCD screen as it can bow the LCD and ruin it.

My Problem

My sons iPod touch 5th gen screen was ruined when sunscreen spilled in his backpack and got into the device.

My Fix

We followed a step by step video and used the ifixit tools and the repair went pretty smoothly with no problems. Fixed first time and it works great!

My Advice

Go slow and watch each step in detail a couple times before moving forward. If you get stumped, stop take a breath, watch video again and try again.

My Problem

My daughter dropped her iPod gen 6 and I want her to think I can fix anything.

My Fix

The repair took about 45 min. I followed a YouTube video.

My Advice

Go to screwmat.com and order one before you start. Makes the whole job easier. And try not to be all Neanderthal hands, it's tiny screws and and easy to break.

My Problem

My son dropped his iPod right on the screen and alas the digitizer broke. But since the digitizer is bonded to the LCD the whole screen unit needed to be repalced (ie: digitizer and LCD) ifixit had the BEST price on this piece AND the home button was included!

My Fix

Hardest parts was heating and loosening the adhesive and then reconnecting the tiny ribbon cables to the mainboard.

I had to take the iPod apart again as you have to make sure the iPod frame is not bent out of shape from the new screen (which after many drops by a kid it was) as the new screen if you can get it popped back in can cause the LCD to display some funny lines down it. Once I straightened out the iPod the screen went in smoothly and the iPod is up and working fine again.....until next drop and when that happens I will buy again from ifixit!

My Advice

If the actual iPod frame is bent out of shape from the shape of the new screen and you can get it popped in, LCD can display some funny lines down it.

My Problem

The iPod ended up underneath a couch leg and was bent. The screen was also crushed.

My Fix

After bending the back plate back to normal, I installed the screen and it's a little messy and not completely right due to the backplate being a little messed up still, but it works and stays in for the most part.

My Advice

Make sure you don't accidentally separate the screen from the plastic bezel that it comes with. It can cause a lot of headache and reduce the effectiveness of the glue that keeps them together.

My Problem

Multiple cracks in the screen

My Fix

It took about 30 minutes.

My Advice

The screws are very tiny and the ribbon cables are fragile so you have to take your time. There are several different size screws so you have to keep them organized.
