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.

My Problem

The rear camera got damaged after an accident where the iPhone hit the floor a little bit to hard. Even the rear case got damaged. And then the battery only worked for a hour, I desided it was time to do something.

My Fix

Thanks to Ifixit, I got both the "how-to" and the replacement parts. It took a long time - almost 5 hours! The repair did go well, even the tiny parts, but I had to redo something - some connectors who got forgotten (difficult to use the phone when You forgot to connect the cellular data antenna...). But I'm satisfied - the phone is saved from the trashcan - it works as it is brand new!

My Advice

The "how-to" could be a little more informative on how to assemble the iPhone - I got some problems because some of the connectors were hiding under the "main unit". But overall: Can I, can You!

My Problem

My MacBook pro started with a flashing folder icon with question mark.

My Fix

I found a guide on how to fix it on ifixit.com

My Advice

buy HDD cables for macbook pro's from iFixit and fix it yourself.

My Problem

My back panel had been cracked for a while, and the speakers eventually crapped out. But that didn't justify the expense. The charger was slowly working less and less until it basically finally stopped. I had a refurbished phone and I think that's why things went awry so quickly.

I quoted a shop, $50 for just the charging dock. For $80 I can get all the parts and tools to fix all three problems. No brainer.

My Fix

Dissassembly was a bit tricksy as it was my first time working on a phone, but it went off without a hitch.

Reassambly does NOT mean "follow steps in reverse order" unless you remember all the orientations of every part you dissassembled.

There were definitely additional steps in reassembly that I had to look up on youtube, in particular the orientation of the gold pin.

Also the microphone cover wouldn't fit anymore because there was an additional gold part on the charging dock. But the mic still works so who knows.

My Advice

I kept my screws organized by drawing a grid on paper and writing the step and the size of each screw in its individual cell. That helped a LOT.

Also, if you are new to this, do your best to note orientation of the smallest things you wouldn't expect because ifixit doesn't necessarily provide the information.

Youtube videos, somehow, illogically, will be blurry the moments you need to see clarity, and sometimes go off-screen when something intricate is going on. I.e. if you can FIND the job for the model, don't expect it to be professionally produced.

That all being said, fixing something yourself is doable and HIGHLY satisfying, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. Fiero is a powerful and fulfilling emotion.

My Problem

My daughter cracked her iPhone 5S screen while at college after only having the phone for about 5 months. I decided I would fix it myself while she was home for Christmas break. I also decided that while I was at it, I would fix her older iPhone 4S cracked screen and sell that phone to help pay for the parts for both phones.

My Fix

The parts fit perfectly and were of great quality. I was very pleased. The repair guides were very informative. The magnetic mat was well worth the purchase. It made keeping screws organized a breeze. Sure wish I had it a long time ago for other repair projects. The only hitch in the repair was that my daughter failed to tell me the vibrator was bad in her 4S. I ordered a new iPhone vibrator from iFixit and after the second tear down of the 4S, every function is working perfectly. The iPhone 5S repair went perfectly and she is very happy to have her phone with a perfect display again. My worry level of her accidentally cracking her iPhone screen is over. I can relax and know if an unfortunate incident occurs, that I can place an order to iFixit and follow their repair guides and have it back as-good-as new in no time.

My Advice

Buy the magnetic mat. The anti-static tray is also great to have for a place to put larger pieces that you don't want on the mat. Read through the repair guide a couple times to be familiar then take your time and work step-by-step and you will be successful.

My Problem

I bought a supposedly new iPhone 4 from a vendor on Amazon to replace a lost iPhone 5s which is on contract till next November with Verizon. After activating the iPhone 4 I noticed that there was a issue with the battery life. I then downloaded iBackupBot for iTunes and then realized that the battery cycle count was at 278 and the battery was probably 3 years old as per the manufacture date of the iPhone. Instead of deactivating the iPhone 4 and sending it back and reactive an old LG cosmos. I figured it be easier to change the battery on the iPhone 4 since the phone itself appears to working properly.

My Fix

The repair is very simple. I reviewed the the instructions and video on ifixit. The whole replacement process took less than 10 minutes.

My Advice

Have a well lighted work area and review the instructions and just take your time.
