My Problem

El iPad no recarga ni es reconocido por iTunes.

My Fix

Son muy importantes las herramientas para abrir correctamente el dispositivo. Las pestañas interiores son metálicas y alguna de las esquinas ofrecen resistencia. Hay que imprimir cierta fuerza pero sin pasarse para que se liberen. El resto no presenta dificultad. Empleé 45 minutos para ir haciendo los pasos con seguridad.

My Advice

Emplea las herramientas recomendadas para abrir el iPad. La esquina inferior derecha es la que ofrece más resistencia. Sigue los pasos de ifixit.

My Problem

I phone 5 power button became funky. Intermittent, phantom turn off, etc.

My Fix

The repair instructions were PERFECT. But be warned, you basically have to take 95% of the circuitry out of your phone to do this repair. My repair was 100% successful.

My Advice

To keep track of the screws, get 6 or so pill bottles and put the screws and the parts for each step into individual pill bottles. The screws appear to be all the same thread (thankfully) but are different lengths. Some vary by only 0.1 mm!

Have good light, a steady hand, and a pair of tweezers.

When putting the display connectors back together, take a small camel hair artists brush and brush the male and female contacts thoroughly to get the dust out. Spray with canned air. These connectors have to be spotless or you get about 4mm of color bars on the top of the screen with flakey touch screen performance.

Go slow, be patient, and don't sneeze! This repair takes some finesse and great care. No forcing things either apart or back together.

My Problem

Power button and volume Up stopped working. Figured I would repair phone and keep as a spare.

My Fix

The repair was a little more involved than I thought but interesting to see how it all goes together. Followed the instructions provided on the website. Tip: I used my gopro dash mount suction cup to remove the display.

My Advice

If you are comfortable working with computers or crafts you can do this task. For this particular swap it took me about an hour. Make sure you get the correct tools.

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

Wife's iPhone 5 with cracked display and kids' 3GS with dead battery. Life had become very difficult for these device-dependent females. Rather than buy full replacements for everyone it was time to roll up the sleeves (with a little help from iFixit of course).

My Fix

As stated many times by other reviewers, watch the iFixit videos as well as others on YouTube to familiarize yourself with the procedures. I spent a number of years early in my career repairing PCs so I had a bit of confidence going in but these are doable for anyone with patience. Devices are good as new and my family thinks I'm a genius. Thanks, iFixit!

My Advice

I stress patience as it is required for working on anything small scale. Be sure to have very good lighting and, for far-sighted folks like me, very good glasses. Take your time and keep screws organized as you remove them. Although tiny they are not all the same size. I have small-to-medium sized hands and can see how larger hands would struggle handling the screws.

My Problem

The battery life between charges was getting short

My Fix

After watching the ifixit video and ordering the part I was able to change the battery in less than 10 min. and it was just as it was shown on the video no problems.

My Advice

watch the video and there should be no problems

My Problem

From a previous order at iFixit, I purchased a new screen and home button assembly for an iPhone 5 that shattered and caused the screen to pop out slightly. I had an "apple pro" screwdriver kit, so I figured the pentalobe was in there, but it wasnt. So after installing the new screen successfully, it was just kinda dangling there until I could get the pentalobe screws out.

My Fix

when I first tried to unscrew the screws, it felt like I received the wrong size screwdriver. However, I took a deep breath, and realized that you have to be right on point and use firm but steady pressure to make the screwdriver "bite" into the screw. 10 minutes later, I had the whole assembly back together and buttoned up. Thanks IFIXIT

My Advice

patiences, firm, steady pressure, and keep the screwdriver level with the phone.

My Problem

Total blackout. After a popular "waterproof" case failed while snorkeling on vacation, threw my phone in a bag of rice and took it to a repair guy, the phone worked again after an ultrasonic isopropyl bath. But, it was never the same, it suffered a slow and painful death within the next 6 months poor battery performance, loss of volume and power button function, and screen sensitivity issues.

My Fix

Great! I am no iphone pro. But knew my way around tiny electronics. Had it back together in little over an hour.

My Advice

Get the screw placement placard, keeps you organized when you get into the guts. Love my Ifixit tools.
