My Problem

iPhone would not power off and battery would go to 0% in 24 hours.

My Fix

reasonable

My Advice

I read about this problem on iFixit and I fixit.

My Problem

The iPhone had gotten water damage and Apple told me that they could replace the phone for $200. Doing the repair and getting a toolkit out of the whole thing was much less expensive.

My Fix

The repair went very well, the iPhone is working afterwards as expected and the online manual was very helpful.

My Advice

1. The small p2 bit in the toolset is nice but I ended up using the smallest standard bit for the removal of almost all of the screws. The p2 bit wasn't that great at loosening and removing those screws in the iPhone... I think that this bit might need to be re-engineered.

2. I would really prefer if the whole set was Made in the USA. I almost didn't buy it because I couldn't tell where set was made and in the future I'll try my best to support American manufacturing, it's something that is important to me. For my other toolkit I use The Chapman Manufacturing Master Kit and all of those tools I feel are a bit higher quality: http://chapmanmfg.com/products/master-ki... (though not the right sizes to be doing electronics repair).

I would love to see you partner with them to make an electronics kit!

My Problem

battery did not hold a charge well. Power cord would not connect without extensive wiggling and would lose the connection while transferring pictures and music.

My Fix

The two repairs went well. The battery alone takes about 15 minutes. Dock connector took about an hour. The battery comes out again for the dock connector so might as well replace it at the same time if you need both parts.

My Advice

Take a good look at the pictures and be sure to use some method to remember which screws go where. I used small bowls for each different section. Look very carefully at the "retaining flap on the home button ribbon cable ZIF socket." It is very small and the pictures do not show it well. Also study how the ribbon fits into the socket and be careful. I used a 10X magnifying glass and it was still small and hard to see. The rest isn't too difficult but be careful as the parts are fragile. Also the new dock has a few pieces of tape over the new glued sections. Be sure to remove them as that is not actually specified in the instructions.

My Problem

On our family vacation to Orlando, Fl, my iPhone 4s got so excited, it just wouldn't power down, much like children will do. The phone though, I think was damaged by a flimsy metal key ring that was in the rental car cup holder. After our first night there, it would not power down. It would turn off and immediately turn back on. Which seems to be a sign of a short in the Dock Connector. I did try all of the restore/reset/clean steps before resorting to trying the part.

My Fix

I ordered a new Dock Connector while in Orlando and it was waiting for me when I got home. The repair went off without a hitch...as most have so far. Within a few minutes of closing up the back and charging the battery, it was back up and running. No more looping power struggles. This is not my first time in this particular iPhone either. I'm determined to keep it going and on-line as long as possible.

My Advice

If you have a smart phone, and it's "broken", don't toss it just because it's not working. Repairing them for the most part is pretty straight forward. Just take your time and review the instructions a few time. iFixit and others have posted many videos to get you through. I review iFixit's and at least one other repair process for all fixes. Besides, it's fun to keep an older phone running vs. buying $600 replacements.

My Problem

Dropped my iPhone 4s in a bowl of milk and the dock port didn't work after

My Fix

Was able to repair my dock port and the home button

My Advice

Watch videos and guides closely.

My Problem

the phone was not holding a charge

My Fix

The teardown was not that difficult using my Pro tool set from iFixit. It took me about 15 minutes to get to the part and remove it. During the removal of the bad dock i noticed a flex cable pop out and did not really pay attention to it like I should. Placed everything back together and function tested the phone. The home button was not working. So, I torn the for down again and remembered to look at the home button flex cable. I found that I did not connect the home button flex cable this was the root cause of the home button malfunction. I but the phone back together and function tested and everything was working.

My Advice

Pay attention to the home button flex cable when removing the wifi cable and speakers. They would have saved 15 additional minutes during the repair but a good lesson learned to take my time.

My Problem

Phone would not sync and battery run time was erratic at best.

My Fix

1.2mm and 1.5mm are easy to take off but a royal pain in the a&& to put back on. Other than that, super smooth. iFixit guide was fantastic!

My Advice

Step 5 - small black ground clip. Although called out, maybe emphasize this WILL fall out as soon as the screw is removed.

My Problem

Phone turning it self off and on and battery not lasting very long

My Fix

Repair was very easy with purchased tool kit, need to get magnifier lens for next projects.

My Advice

Instructions only show tear down but no instruction on removing small, tiny bits of plastic covering sticky parts and I may have left piece on mic as that doesn't work now only speaker mode, going back in to check.

My Problem

Broken screen and back cover

My Fix

Easy. Parts we of the highest quality

My Advice

Make sure you have your glasses. Screws are very small.

My Problem

Ordered part and replaced it but tore the ribbon cable for dock connector.

My Fix

ordered the dock connector and replaced it and reinstalled speaker all without removing battery. everything works well.

My Advice

be very careful when unpeeling ribbon cable to dock connector.
