My Problem

My lightning connector was broken. When I plugged it in, it would charge on and off. I'd have to wiggle the chord in order for it to charge.

My Fix

The repair went awesome and video and pictures helped a lot, showing what screws and cables to disconnect

My Advice

I would say, tell people they need to take a little plastic piece off their old headphone jack and put it on the new Ifixit housing.

My Problem

I had an issue with the lightening connectors not working (charging) unless the charging cable was wiggled around and finding the right spot to work.

My Fix

The repair was more than I had bargained for. Replacing the lightening connector entailed taking pretty much everything apart inside the iPhone 5. The instructions are great and mostly detailed. When it got down to removing the lightening connector itself, there were 4, what looked like, spring washers that are not shown in the instructions. I concluded that they went under the lightening replacement part itself. also not much is mentioned about how delicate the cell antenna attachment could be. It took the longest time to fix the outer ring that is mounted to the processor board.

My Advice

Make sure you have a layout plan for all parts removed. This is probably the most important part for reassembly. Have a good amount of light, possibly a magnifying lamp.

My Problem

The copper pin that carries charge to the battery burned out. The phone recognized it was connected to a power source but the battery would not charge.

My Fix

The phone works again so it went well :)

It was slightly more difficult than my last repair (battery replacement). The real trouble for me came when I had to reconnect the pin to (I believe) was the antenna connection. It's a very small pin and the metal ring in the female end, near the logic board, can bend/warp easily.

My Advice

The iFixit guide is a conservative approach to the repair. Disconnecting the battery and removing the logic board is not necessary (but is good practice to keep from shocking/electrocuting yourself or from damaging the logic board).

My approach was to remove the top cover, disconnect the battery, and remove the speaker assembly. The charging port assembly can be replaced after that. It's a quicker repair (took me 30 minutes even with the difficulty connecting the antenna jack) if you are confident in your dexterity with your hands ;)

My Problem

My battery of my MacBook pro and the charge port of my iPhone 5

My Fix

I started with my Macbook pro that was simple. Then came the nurve racking part my iPhone 5. This is my daily driver and can't really afford a new phone at the moment. I was a little bit nurvese but I went foward and did my best. Taking the logic board was the hardest part. Second came putting the screen back.

My Advice

There are some parts of the charge port that you need to transfer that the guid does not tell you. Like the grounding wire that goes around the headphone jack. The little fome that is around the mic

My Problem

Over a period of about one year, it took longer and longer to get the phone to charge. It would always eventually work, but I was fed up and decided to replace the port.

My Fix

The repair was pretty easy. I didn't remove the battery or screen which saved some time. Unfortunately, after I had the thing back together, the home button was not working. As it was pretty late I initially said oh well and just was going to use the AssistiveTouch feature. This lasted all of two days before I decided to fix the home button too. It turns out that the one of the two gold colored connectors (just to the left of the port) got a bit bent during the port replacement and wasn't making contact with the home-button electrode on the screen. I just gently bent the gold looking connector back in place and the home button was working again!

My Advice

Keep an eye on those gold home button connectors, making sure they don't get bent in the process.

My Problem

My son a freshman at The University of Delaware was home for break when he explained everything that was wrong with his iPhone 5. He wanted to upgrade to an iPhone 6 but when we found out that his contract was not filled and how much it would cost to do so, we immediately opened up the iFix it app and started reading!

My Fix

We agreed that he was going to be the hands on and I was going to be there as an advisor and resource to him. With his laptop opened and guides readily available we first watched the videos and then set up our parts tray, magnetic mat and laid out a working surface. In order to access the lightening connecror assembly we basically had to gut the inside. The excellent directions, illustrations and guides made it satisfying for this first time user (my son). After almost three hours of cautios hands on we had a perfectly functioning iphone 5 with a screen assembly that looked like we just picked it up from the Apple Store! With the money we saved I made it a point to enjoy an adult premium beverage!

My Advice

"Never take broken for an answer". The professionals @ iFix it have gone through the menucia. Take their lead, use the resources, advice, tools and take some pride in fixing something yourself. When all is said and done there is an invredible sense of satisfaction intaking matters into your own hands and passing on the knowledge to our next generation of techies!

My Problem

I plugged a lightning cable in one day and it wouldn't read it. Thought it was the aftermarket cable so I tried a bunch more. When a genuine apple branded cable didn't work I knew something was up. Peering inside I had broke a pin in the jack and a bunch more were loose. Battery is only part charged? Time for emergency surgery.

My Fix

Rough. Oh the first time was easy. I used a shortcut to avoid taking the battery and the main board out. Put everything back in, buttoned it up, and made a test call. "You sound really muddy" says my roommate. Looking at the removed part I missed the rubber microphone holder/waveguide. So popped it back open (much easier this time) and put the rubber piece on. Since I also had the battery I decided might as well do the battery so I don't have to do it again. Battery swap went well, put it all back together, turned it on, no LTE. So back open again to find that I had bumped the U.FL connecter near the screen's connections (had taken that off while doing the battery) and it was unplugged. After sticking that back down and putting it back together the 3rd time everything worked as it should. Hard? No. Just finicky

My Advice

The photos of the replacement dont mention the rubber microphone guide but make sure you move that over from the old to the new if it doesn't have it. Also you can skip a bunch of steps if you are willing to get creative with the speaker removal. Not hard just tricky. The iFixIt guide is the most conservative and safest route.

My Problem

My screen was cracked open in the top and bottom, i had to fix it, water was leaking through and the screen went blurry.. My phone didn't want to charge, and my headphones only worked on one end. A friend of mine was giving me a hug, and when she let go, she just smashed my phone into the ground. After that, my screen broke, and i could never charge my phone again :'( UNTILL!

My Fix

When I started the repair, I looked at the guide, and tried to unscrew my phone, at this moment, I noticed that my P2 bit from the toolkit was slightly broken, I didn't notice any difference at the beginning, but i'll come back to that part later. When I unscrewed the bottom screws on my iPhone 5, it went like a dream. I used the suction cup to open up the screen, so I could take it off, and began screwing the screws with my PH00 bit, easy peasy, and began unscrewing everything inside the phone, because that was necessary to change the dock connector. so I began unscrewing everything. When i was finished. I closed my phone the same way I opened it, just vice versa :P And boom, my phone got a new screen :D

I encountered a problem really quick. The earpiece to my new screen, didn't work, so I had to unscrew my screen again, and this is when I noticed the fault in my P2 bit. It wasn't easy at all to unscrew my screen, the screws didn't want to unscrew that easy anymore, but after struggling for about 10 minutes, I finally managed to do it, pressed the cables tightly in, and the earspeaker worked. I could now both charge my phone, connect it to speakers, and break my screen again, because now, I can fix my screen.

My Advice

The only advice i got for fixing my phone, was from the tutorials here on iFixit.

My Problem

Connecting the wire routed under the speaker instead of around it, fixed worked ok.

My Fix

good

My Advice

keep up the good work you guys do.

My Problem

My dock connector was on its way out. Any disturbance to the charging cable (once I'd be done playing around with it for 5 min to get it to keep charging) would prevent the phone from charging. I bought a dock connector on Amazon, which turned out to be faulty. Unfortunately the only way I found out was after spending 2 hours taking the phone apart and putting it back together. I repeated the process to put my old dock connector back in place. I then ordered one from here.

My Fix

The repair was seamless the second time around. I actually didn't remove the phone's logic board, saving myself considerable time.

My Advice

You don't need to remove the logic board. Once you separate the screen from the back of the phone, disconnect the battery; remove the shield; disconnect the dock connector cable; remove the 7 screws (keep track of where they came from); replace the dock connector with the new one, following the steps in IFIXIT's article.
