Stories

My Problem

My friend dropped her 4S twice and the screen was totally smashed. I was ordering a new display for my own 5S so I offered to replace it.

My Fix

Compared to the 5S repair I did the day before it was more complex, but I actually kind of liked that. I am really getting hooked on fixing stuff, thanks to ifixit. I live in Siberia and there's not too many people repairing phones so I'm even thinking about doing it as a side business. Everything went really smoothly

My Advice

Having the anti-static project tray is totally a must - also I would recommend using ifixit's tweezers, you can keep oils from your hands off the parts very easily that way.

My Problem

The screen was cracked and the battery was not holding a charge.

My Fix

The repair would have gone better if I wouldn't have tried to rush it. As someone suggested I printed out the step by step instructions and taped the screws and parts to the exact spot on the picture of each step. When I put the new screen on I failed to feed the new cable ribbons all the way thru the slot in the phone and as a result I was not able to plug one of them into the logic board. I had to take it all apart from that point back to the beginning of the reassemble. I was frustrated and I wasn't as careful about keeping track of the screws and parts. I did get it all put back together and it wouldn't power on! I really didn't know what to do. Fortunately I have a spare Iphone that I took the back off of and set it next to the one I was fixing. Looking at both of them I noticed that on one of the two screws that secures the battery connector to the logic board has a gold colored part that consists of a prong that I assume serves as a ground for the battery that makes contact with the back once it is in place. I missed that part when I reassembled the phone. I found the part and on the correct sheet of paper that I had printed out with all of the steps on, attached it to the screw on the battery connector, replaced the back on the phone and the phone powered up and is working perfect!

My Advice

Take your time, don't panic, and be careful as you are feeding the new cables thru the phone. They will plug into the logic board perfectly but you have to make sure that the cables aren't kinked.

My Problem

Cracked screen

My Fix

Required slow and methodical work, but was not difficult. Instructions were excellent.

My Advice

Loop some white gaffer tape to where the sticky side is exposed and write the step number and screw size on the tape with a permanent marker.

My Problem

My 2 yr old somehow managed to crack the screen on her toy iphone 4s that was in a lifeproof case.

My Fix

The repair went fairly smoothly. The only challenge that I had was keeping track of the screws and the shields and where they go. I was able to find information online that helped me understand what pieces went where.

My Advice

Take your time and do it right!

My Problem

I did the repair myself because the iPhone is old and I am living abroad. The repair here is expensive.

My Fix

Following the fixit guide.

My Advice

I used small paper bags and labeled them with the steps' number to put screws and components as I removed them. I also magnetised the screwdriver to hold the screws. This worked well

My Problem

Had the phone apart to fix other items (microphone, ear speaker, power button harness). After reassembling, the digitizer would not work. You guys know this story. Pinched and slightly tore the digitizer ribbon cable (crap!).

My Fix

After ordering the ifixit replacement screen, and paying attention to the guide, all is well in "Old iPhone 4s" land once again

My Advice

Really pay attention to the display and digitizer ribbon cable routing, when reassembling. Everything else is pretty basic (if you like working with a magnifying glass, lol)

My Problem

my screen had been previously cracked, so I put a clear sticker on it. So, that saved it for a while. Unexpectedly one morning, It had been flung off of my nightstand and had completely severed. the back glass was also held together with stickers, but is still intact. I figured to switch it to something cool, that I could see gizmos through. the old one is a souvenir I guess.

My Fix

Actually, way easier then any of the reviews made it seem. the hardest screws were easily the corner ones. I never detached my headphone jack, but that corner screw wasn't too bad to get in.

My Advice

Make sure to organize by screw size so they don't get mixed up. doing so really made the re-assembly a breeze.

My Problem

The 4s had a cracked screen.

My Fix

The repair went fine following the steps on ifixit.com. After powering up, I noticed a slight dim spot a little bigger than a pencil eraser. That was a slight bummer for a $40 product.

My Advice

Follow the instructions and you should be g2g.

My Problem

My son badly cracked the screen on his iPhone 4S. Originally it was just ugly but it became progressively worse until I was afraid he would cut his face when answering the phone.

My Fix

It worked! But that was a total surprise. You can get the screen on an iPhone 4S replaced at booths in malls for $55.

If I had known how difficult this repair was I would have waited for them to get the part back in stock and left them to it.

I had previously repaired a 3GS phone and this was far, far worse. You have to completely disassemble the phone to take the screen out. Battery, logic board, speaker, it all has to come out. And everything it held in place with screws that:

a. Need an electron microscope to be seen

b. Are different sizes every time

I completed the repair with 3 screws left over and knowing that one screw went in the wrong place and never came out.

Despite that THE PHONE WORKS! I was surprised. If it had not turned back on I would literally have replaced the phone rather than attempt that again. The whole process took well over an hour.

My Advice

I love repairing things myself but, for this one, unless you are into self flagellation you should take it to one of the third party repairers and let them do it.

I tried to take it to two different repair places in New York. They charged between $45 and $55 but were out of stock of the screens. If I known what I know now I would have waited for them to get the parts.

My Problem

The iPhone leapt from my hand one day and smashed on the ground: the screen was completely shattered. I like the design of the 4s--it looks steampunk to me--so I wanted to try to repair it if I could.

My Fix

It took about two hours, and the iFixit instructions were invaluable: they showed me exactly what to expect. I couldn't have done it without them. I'm very happy with the result.

My Advice

There is a red adhesive backing stuck to the reflective surface on the inside of the display unit, but the reflective surface is not adhered to the unit: it falls right out if you're not careful. It's challenging to get the backing off the reflective surface without getting fingerprints all over it, which I assume is not something you want to do. It would have been good to know in advance about this: I might have had a pair of vinyl gloves on hand.
