My Problem

Was having intermittent charge and sync issues with My 4S Doc Connector.

My Fix

Repair was easy with the pictorial repair guide from the website. 1 hour or so is all it took. This was my first repair for this phone.

My Advice

Lay out and tape a big piece of white paper (24" x 24" )to a flat work surface. The tape is so you don't have to worry about catching the paper and shifting all the little screws around by accident. As you take the parts out write on the paper size Ie 1.2mm Phillips etc. and description of part. There is plenty of room to keep the parts separated to help ease any confusion of similar looking screws.

My Problem

After having fixed the battery and speaker issue, ( https://www.ifixit.com/Story/12618/iphon... ), I had noticed that even when plugged in, every now and then, the iphone 4S would just suddenly start discharging, as if it were not plugged in. Also, when I replaced the speaker in my previous repair, I did notice that there was some warpage of the old speaker assembly, as if that part of the speaker assembly got excessively hot. From those two things, I assumed there was a possible short in the dock connector assembly.

My Fix

The repair went quite smoothly. That iScrews iPhone Screw tray comes in handy for the repair process, in making sure I know where every screw I removed went.

I delayed writing this success story, to verify that the intermittent discharging while plugged in problem was no longer present, and the problem is indeed fixed. Darned good thing I did buy the dock connector assembly even when I thought I didn't previously need it.

My Advice

Replacing that rubber spacer can be rather tricky. Just take your time, and get a good light source.

My Problem

It was a mess and probably not worth fixing, but I had fun doing the repair and got it right the second time. Haha.

My Fix

Got all the parts back in place and this time it worked, even the speaker. So, what's that little wire from the speaker to the main board for? It doesn't come with the speaker, so that was a loss. The little connector end had come off, but I guess just squeezing it back into place worked.

My Advice

Take your time. Get it right the first time.

My Problem

I was having issues with my music playing aloud. I attempted replacement as a fix.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly. it was slight nerve racking since, well, phones aren't cheap. I used the $20 repair kit they sale, it had all the tools I needed.

My Advice

Everything worked great. However, now that my lower speaker is louder and I still have the same problem I believe that my issue is the docking connector, and that my phone believes it is docked. That is why no music plays aloud but my headphones work perfect.

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

The enclosure melted

My Fix

Went great

My Advice

There isnt any need to take out the battery when replacing this part but make sure all the plugs are unplugged.

My Problem

As the title states, battery was bad and the loud speak blew out.

My Fix

Repair went very well. Took my time, follow the steps and guide on the ifixit.com and had the battery and speaker replaced within 30 minutes.

My Advice

Take your time, no need to rush.

ALSO I SUGGEST USING AN OLD EGG CARTON TO SEPARATE YOUR SCREWS AND PARTS. DON'T FORGET TO LABEL!

My Problem

Girlfriend's 4S speaker gave up the ghost. The speaker started crackling a few months ago and got to the point where no sound was emitted.

My Fix

Repair went well; I am used to working on iPhones from the 3G/3GS era. Took around 30 minutes from start to finish.

My Advice

I would recommend replacing the battery when repairing the speaker; it is very difficult to remove the battery without any deformation.

The wifi antenna is extremely difficult to remove due to the 'sticker' that is holding it to the speaker enclosure. This took the most of my repair time.

My Problem

First of all my battery was long since overdue for its demise. While researching the repair I discovered one of my speakers was non-functional as well.

My Fix

It went very well. My only problem was with one of the internal screws (phillips head) which I wound up stripping. This required a bit larger of a screw driver tip and some moderate pressure to remove and replace. I fault the screw itself rather than the ifixit tools or advice.

My Advice

I suggest watching several videos on Youtube to watch others in action before taking on. This is especially helpful to see the difficulties to be encountered before hand, such as the adhesive on the back of the battery itself. It is quite strong and I also broke the plastic pull-tab from the factory, nevertheless, with careful prying at the edges with the provided tools, I was successful.

My Problem

Speaker Module was blown

Battery was not lasting long

Ear Piece was blown

My Fix

Everything went smoothly, the step points helped a lot on your website.

My Advice

None, all went smoothly
