My Problem

I switched my phone carrier to a much less expensive carrier, but brought my old iPhone 5 along for the ride. I was on a 200 mile gravel grinder bike race, and I guess my phone got quite shook up, as it would not charge unless I wrapped the lightning cable around it. I tried cleaning out the lint with a toothpick, but still no go. A little research brought me to the ifixit site, and I ordered the new lightning connector, along with a battery replacement kit which had most of the tools need for the Lightning connector repair.

My Fix

Wow, replacing the Lightning connector took me 4 hours, even though I'm a tinkerer and DIY kind of guy. The guide was great, although the video skipped a few of the steps early on and I stopped watching it and followed the online guide. Most everything had to be removed including the logic board. This repair is not for the feint of heart. I got it done, but I was worried as my phone was completely in parts on the table. My wife reminded me that normal people do not attempt such things (did she call me abnormal?) I wound up ordering the wrong battery, for an iPhone 5s which was not compatible with my iPhone 5, so I called and they were very helpful, offering to take back the battery and refund me no questions.

My Advice

There were a lot of tiny screws that needed to be managed. I did not order the magnet pad, but that seems like a great thing to have. I used some fridge magnets to help me keep the screws in order.

My Problem

You know how one thing often leads to another? There's a humorous old song that describes a twisted chain of events that that come up in the process of fixing the bucket. One thing leads to another. My home button was not responding but only intermittently. So I ordered a new home button and cable, installed it but then it wouldn't work at all. On closer inspection I discovered I had damaged the cable that connects the home button contacts which are part of the Lightning connector.

My Fix

I read through the step by step guide to replace the lightning connector. I thought I just might be able to manage it but I was intimidated. After all you've got to take just about every component of the phone apart to get at the lightning connector. All those tiny screws and cable connections! Anyway, I followed the guide meticulously, sweated a lot and by the grace of God was able to complete the repair successfully. It probably took an hour to an hour and a half. Sorry no pics.

My Advice

The only really serious hurdle was the that the instructions for step 33, removing the Lightning connector and speaker enclosure assembly from the rear case didn't say anything about how hard it was to actually free the charging port from the case. A note stating that this might be a struggle would have helped. Or a note that said when the connector comes out the charging port and the headphone jack come with it. I'm sure this is 2nd nature to the pros but it was sticky for me. By way of advice I would say take your time. Be patient. Follow the instructions to the letter and read all the notes. Keep close track of which screws go where. Watch out for small parts that can easily disappear.

My Problem

The Lightning connector on my iPhone 5 spontaneously stopped working. I picked up a replacement phone, but wasn't ready to give up the $100-200 I could get to trade or sell the iPhone 5.

My Fix

Using ifixit's part and guide I replaced the connector in about 90 minutes and with a $20 part. And after the fix it worked like a charm!

My Advice

The 5 is relatively easy to work on. Just be patient and use a system to keep track of the screws.

My Problem

Ok so I thought the dock connector on my iPhone 5 was not working correctly so I ordered a new one from iFixit. Item was shipped fast, packed beautifully and was in brand new condition.

My Fix

Repair went without a hitch. Followed the guide on the iFixit website and boom! In and working!

My Advice

Here's the thing, after I installed the new connector I read some of the comments and one person mentioned something so obvious that I had not thought of.... Lint!! So after reading the comment I took the old connector grabbed a thin tooth pick and pulled a wad of lint out of it! Dang! Check first, that might be the problem. Still no complaints, iFixit rocks.

My Problem

The battery on my iPhone became the worst battery I've ever had the displeasure of using. To top it off, the charging port started to be problematic as well and wouldn't charge the phone half the time. Nothing worse than your phone being dead after 4 hours and plugging it in for awhile to come back to a STILL DEAD PHONE!! Arrrrrgh!!

My Fix

The battery replacement was easy and straightforward. The lightning connector was not. The video tutorial to change out the lightning connector wasn't helpful at all, use the step by step guide instead. Be prepared to catalog the screws as it's very difficult to tell the difference between a 2.7mm screw and a 3.0mm screw. Also get some sort of magnetic tray to hold them because they're tiny and easy to lose otherwise!! Lastly, the install took about 2 hours while drinking beer, so someone who isn't half intoxicated might get it done a bit quicker! :)

My Advice

Get a magnetic tray to hold the screws and make sure you have all the right tools for the job.

My Problem

Unreliable Lightning connector and faulty power button. Charged intermittently and power button failed to work at all.

My Fix

Watched some YouTube videos and got the parts required. Repaired both parts (which were very fragile) at the same time, it only took about 90 minutes. Very straightforward.

My Advice

The only thing I would do differently is catalogue the screws. It took a few tries to get the right ones each time.

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
