My Problem

Third time replacing iPhone 5 cracked display.

My Fix

Repair went well using iFixit supplied tools and YouTube videos as a guide.

My Advice

Cover over digitizer cables has to be set in just right for display to settle in flush with case. This part took me a little extra time.

My Problem

A friend gave me his broken iPhone5 when he upgraded to a 6. (good friend!)

My Fix

Well the basic replacement of the screen is very easy. I have the tools from iFixit and followed the guide. The only problem I had were grey blocks at the top of the screen, then the display would act weird.

A quick search found that if I cleaned the contacts that should solve things. So I disassembled again, and busted out the magnifying glass. Sure enough, the new screen, (purchased from iFixit) had some grunge on the connecter. I used some contact cleaner and a small plastic pick to remove the detritus from the connection and VOILA! Satisfaction!

Now I'm on the hunt for another phone to pass off to my wife. iFixit makes repairing these things a breeze.

My Advice

Go slow, and use some sticky tape to keep track of the screws. Buy good tools, the cheap stuff strips screws. I replaced the pentalobe screws when re-assembling.

Also, work clean. give yourself some space and some light and don't force anything.

My Problem

The screen on my iphone 5 had gone dead. Except for the home-button-bracket (which was in perfect condition), I decided it would be better to effect a complete replacement of the entire screen assembly. While I was at it, I figured it also would be a good idea to replace the battery.

My Fix

The repair itself went -- everything went off without a hitch, and all works properly. However, there are two maters that require addressing:

1. The covering of the LCD (what most people would call "the screen") has a "loose spot" where it clearly is not attached properly to the LCD. The result of this is that the "loose spot" moves visibly up and down (and makes a clicking sound) when that portion of the covering is pressed. (Side note: I am not entirely certain that the covering of the LCD actually is made of gorilla glass -- I have reason to believe it is made of some type of plastic.)

2. Despite being new, the battery yields talk-time of only between five and six hours. This is the second time I have replaced the battery on this phone (the first time, the battery also was ordered through ifixit), and the first time I did so, the new battery yielded talk-time of around eight hours. The vast discrepancy in quality between the two leads me to believe that there is little in the way of quality control or standards regarding the supplier for ifixit.... and they really need to fixit.

My Advice

Although I was able to attach the home-button-ribbon-cable with just my fingers, it would have been easier with tweezers.

I did not take photos of the process.... just picture an iphone 5, and you will know how everything turned out.

My Problem

My sister's iPhone 5 had a broken screen

My Fix

Just fine, the tutorial and the videos are well made

My Advice

Be aware that if you buy from Italy, just like i did, the currier will make you pay the custom duties, 40€!!!

My Problem

iPhone 5 had been dropped onto a concrete floor and received a spiderweb of cracks across its screen.

My Fix

The repair went well and with a little time the new screen transferred over nicely. I had to transfer over the old home button and, more carefully, the old home button ribbon cable but those ended up where they needed to be. One screw that held the home button in place was lodged into its insert and stripped at its top so I had to bend the small metal bar above the home button out of place to get access to it. Fortunately, the bar popped out with the screw so I was able to transfer over the piece and, with only one side screwed back into place, get it on the new phone screen.

So a bit of improvisation proved necessary.

My Advice

- While it says so in the description of the item be aware that the iPhone 5 with Display Assembly does not come accompanied with a Home Button or a Home Button Ribbon Cable. You have to transfer over those yourself.

- The small Phillips head screwdriver may not work with all the tiny screws it is intended to remove, such as the two small screws that hold the home button mount in place. I had to use a different Phillips head screwdriver from an eyeglass repair kit I had laying around.

- The suction cup does not totally lift the screen out of the metal case. At best it will get you a small amount of space to wedge in your pry bar and begin working out the screen. The screen may crack and splinter even more as you're in the process of removal, but this is fine since it's being removed anyway.

- Experiment with which side of the double-sided pry bar is best for the particular task you are on. They didn't seem that different to me (I thought there would be two instruments as shown in the video and some screenshots but there's merely one double-sided instrument) but apparently they are not identical.

- Don't panic.

- Use a refrigerator magnet turned upside-down to hold onto the screws while you're performing the repairs. This will help keep them from rolling around. Additionally, place the magnet in a pan with sides in case something does come off the magnet.

- The screws are the tiniest fastening devices I have ever seen.

- Be patient. This repair can work very well provided you follow the video and make note of any deviations there might be for what you need to do, such as working without the iOpener or other gadgets the person in the vid has. The same video is used for both the Display Assembly with Front Camera and the bare screen you can purchase on its own, so depending on what you need to replace this repair may have more steps. Since got the screen with the camera and other devices this was less complicated.

My Problem

A friend put their iPhone into a cup of soda, thinking it was the empty cupholder in the car. Ooops! Then they took it out a few minutes later and tried to use it right away. Sigh. I got the phone a week later with the complaint that it would not even charge.

My Fix

The first bit of repair was removing the grain of rice stuck in the lighting port. I guess there are drawbacks to the rice-dry method my friend had tried. The phone kind of worked, but had some difficulty holding a charge, very sticky buttons, and a fascinatingly disfigured screen. I decided to open it up and clean off all the parts and buttons individually. Unfortunately, I struck out on step one: it took so much effort to pull the screen from the body that I ripped all the ribbon cables off the screen. Drat! I proceeded with the cleanup anyway, and ordered a new screen. Bottom line, everything works!

My Advice

Soda can add an extra challenge to prying the screen off. This phone was so sticky that even the iSclack did not budge the screen. I learned to keep an extra tight grip on the top of the phone while prying apart the bottom with stronger suction cups. Luckily, in my case the screen was already damaged, but it still did not feel good to rip those cables the first time around!

I'm not sure if it was the soda or not, but removing the home button contact points was also more difficult than I expected. Going slow with patience paid off, though. Those little gold bugs will move, eventually!

My Problem

Her screen shattered so bad, it couldn't properly track touches.

My Fix

I ordered a full assembly (important: with camera!) and sat down with my 12 year old daughter to help her fix her iPhone 5. She's not exactly the patient careful type, so I needed to encourage her to go slow and be sure to hold hands over the work area so we don't lose any parts. Well, she lost one screw that we never found again, but it's probably no big deal. She needed some help removing the screen since it required some gentle strength. She also needed help plugging the first cable in, but she did the other two cables herself. In the end, it all worked perfectly.

My Advice

Make sure your work environment is clean and well lit. Use reading glasses or magnifying glasses. Be patient - getting the tiny parts to align can be tricky.

My Problem

Cracked screen and old battery required an update to make the phone usable for another family member.

My Fix

Went off without a hitch, took about 40 minutes to read, digest, and perform the changes. Make sure you read the important facts, like that the battery can only be pried out from 3 locations safely. Don't be in a hurry or you will break your phone.

My Advice

Exactly as your techs described it, but I gotta second the "Geez those screws are TINY!" statement. Take your time, read the steps BEFORE you try to fix them so you understand each step, as there are TINY screws that go in only certain places, and they're not all alike. Make sure you know which ones go where. Take notes as you remove screws and keep them arranged in a way so you can put them back in the reverse of the way you took them out. Smooth, constant, steady pressure when removing the screen or the battery is VERY important. Don't force them, just pull and wait for the adhesive to release.

My Problem

Accidentally drop n screen came off from its main body

My Fix

Just follow the instructions guide n every was fixed succesfuly

My Advice

Just follow the procedure step by step carefully.

My Problem

Did not charge anymore due to lose connector, weak battery the lasted only half a day, and earpiece, that became very quiet

My Fix

Did major surgery: replaced the connector assembly, earpiece, and battery. Lots of screws and many steps. Takes about two hours.

My Advice

Do not lose the little washers under the connector. They are hard to see as they are flush with the back case. You only noticed them after they are gone, in my cases after cleaning the case with compressed air. There is also one washer under the speaker.
