My Problem

The problem arose from my use of the headphones while carrying my phone in my back pocket and sitting down. In a short manner of time I lost audio in the left ear. It was the jack and not the headphones. Cleaning the port with a stripped swab didn't correct it either. Soon after I was afforded an upgrade and got a new iPhone 4 and was able to keep the 3GS. After about a year I found some Youtube vids about phone repair and then found this parts source.

My Fix

After watching the video tutorial I was confident I could perform this task. So I ordered the replacement part and suction cup. The other tools needed I already own. Six days later I received my parts package. So I laid out a clean rag to keep small parts in the place where I laid them and began the process. Disassembly and removal of the defective jack only took 15 minutes. What followed next became a test of skills to remove small parts from the old assembly, attach to the new, and bend and lay the ribbon wires correctly and replace the screws one by one. The most difficult task was placing the mute switch correctly. It took me three tries to get it right, but in the end, it all went together well. Every screw was in it's place. Reassembly of the phone was easy, and a function test proved that I had completed the task properly and stereo audio was restored.

My Advice

My advice is the same as I have always practiced. Start with research, advise, and whenever possible, pictures/video of the operation you wish to perform. Details are important and always give yourself a clean and uncluttered work site. Using a large clean rag will allow you to place the removed screws in an orientation that allows you to remember their place. And make sure the rag can't be moved in such a manner that dumps everything in your lap! I thank this site for allowing me to restore an old phone to full function and use. Scott.

My Problem

Unreliable Lightning connector and faulty power button. Charged intermittently and power button failed to work at all.

My Fix

Watched some YouTube videos and got the parts required. Repaired both parts (which were very fragile) at the same time, it only took about 90 minutes. Very straightforward.

My Advice

The only thing I would do differently is catalogue the screws. It took a few tries to get the right ones each time.

My Problem

The home button on my iPhone 5 fell off and could not use the phone anymore.

My Fix

It went very well. I bought the button and the tools from your site and I used the excellent video that you guys made. I followed it to the letter and had no issues, it took me set by step until the job was completed. I was done in less than 30 minutes.

I did not have the heat pad so I used a blow dryer to help loosen up the button cable very carefully which I would not recommend doing. But, if you have no choice set it to the lowest level of heat and air speed and keep it away from the tiny screws. I was done in about 30 minutes.

My Advice

Get the tools for the job because it will make your job go without a hitch and do not deviate from the video instructions.

My Problem

Battery was weak. The iPhone 5 often showed +50% battery status - then, all of a sudden, the OS shut down.

My Fix

I followed the very good instruction from the fixit-website (https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone+5+Ba...). The instruction said when removing the display you should pry with the plastic opening tool around the display to loosen the display (steps 6-8). This didn't work with me. I couldn't lift the display high enough to get the opening tool between display and body. But when I finally managed to lift it at the bottom (where the screws were), it came off altogether. Luckily, I didn't pull too hard so I didn't damage the wires.

Another thing was the front panel assembly cable bracket (step 10), see photo. It has curved metal tongues that grab somewhere under the cables. It came off very hard - and it was hard to put it back. I first tried to somehow move the tongues where I thought they should go, but to no avail. Finally, I pressed it tightly down, and the tongues snapped in place. I needed quite a lot of pressure until the tongues "clicked".

My Advice

I had difficulties handling the tiny Phillips screws. Tweezers did the trick.

My Problem

The factory Seagate 3tb hd died.

My Fix

The iMac opening tool was perfect and the adhesive strips are top quality. The little blue tabs made it very easy to strip of the backing. They are also cut to fit perfectly, unlike the generic strips some companies sell.

My Advice

I used an HGST enterprise 4tb drive. I've had great luck with the HGST drives. This machine has the Fusion drive. Disk Utility recognized the new drive and automatically reconfigured the Fusion to the new drive. No command line required.

Also used the OWC cable to enable the iMac to get drive temp to properly control fan speed.

My Problem

My camera showed something like "burned" spots and some dust specs all around.

My Fix

I sweated a lot :)

I did not remove the battery.

One of the screws that held the battery bracket was broken; luckily the standoff screw underneath got unscrewed and I was able to remove the bracket with the screw attached.

The flash lens was the most difficult part to put back in properly. The cable of the camera does not come already bent, so it takes a bit of trial and error to put it correctly.

Camera works perfectly now, flash too.

When I rebooted it did not find the cellular signal, I put the phone in airplane mode and then back, and it works :)

My Advice

I read all the comments before doing the fix. Among the best ones: do not remove the battery, and "use a ice cube tray to store screws".

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

Bought a 3gs with a craked screen just to see if I could fix it

My Fix

Repair went ok the guide was excellent the phone works great.

My Advice

Get a big magnifying class thoose wires a small for old eyes lol

My Problem

I wanted to change the display of a friend's iPhone 5s. I don't know exactly how it happened but the screen was shattered. She has two small kids so they probably had something to do with it :-)

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The first time I tried to turn it on it didn't turned on, it would vibrate multiple time but the screen didn't respond...but I quickly found the solution in the "Answers" section. I just had to open again the iphone, unplug the battery connector, press shortly the on/off button, plug the battery connector back to the main board and boom it worked.

After that I had another little glitch: the phone didn't find any signal. On the up left corner it was written "searching". Unfortunately I don't exactly know what fixed the problem. I did a reset of the network settings, but didn't fix the problem right away. Then I did something else (sorry but I forgot what, besides praying...) and after a while it asked the sim card pin code and it worked!

My Advice

If you encounter any problem look for the solution in the "Answers" sections....it was really helpful for me.

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!
