My Problem

Sister dropped it on the sidewalk and made the touch screen unusable, with no upgrade eligibility for 4 months the cost of the repair was the right choice.

My Fix

pretty straight forward, accidentally made a screw go flying but I found it lol

My Advice

Take your time when removing the camera , also heating up its adhesive makes it a lot easier to peel away without tearing.

My Problem

Broken digitizer

My Fix

It was a good experience by following the step by step instructions. It was hard to grab small screws.

My Advice

You don't have to remove the black tape attached to the aluminum back screen panel if you replace a camera.

My Problem

My father had his phone in his back pocket with an otterbox case on it, and the plastic near the home button crushed the screen when he sat down. The whole lower half of the screen was nearly unusable.

My Fix

The repair was very smooth and went better than I expected. I had repaired an iPod touch 4g last year and this was way easier. I just went slow and followed the guide. Positioning the proximity sensor took a couple tries but other than that everything went off without a hitch. The provided tools were helpful and I organized the screws by size.

My Advice

Like everyone else says, take your time and follow the guide. ORGANIZATION IS A LIFESAVER.

My Problem

Cracked screen, phone dropped one too many times and didn't have proper protective case on at the time.

My Fix

Went smoothly with iSlack to take the phone apart. Why do you have to keep updating your phones with more and more Glued parts thought, Apple?

My Advice

Take is slowly and be patient with the heat bag on the glue components, along with the removal of the parts. They are very, very delicate.

My Problem

This repair was for my nephew. He was walking down the street with his phone in his hand. A skater flew past him knocking the phone out of his hand and on to the pavement. The screen of course cracked, so he asked his uncle to come to the rescue.

My Fix

Luckily there is not much to tell, I ordered the kit and followed the youtube video. The repair probably took a little under an hour. My only hick up was having the apply heat to the adhesive. I didn't have the forethought of buying a heating pad so I ended up heating water in the microwave and poring it into a plastic bag. It was a little sketchy, but it did the trick. I also was worried about damaging the grounding pad on the back of the screen but we I placed in on the new screen it seemed to be fine.

My Advice

Remember that this is going to require some heat, so be prepared before you start taking things apart. To test that all went well make sure to have the owner present or have them give you the passcode. You can test the touch screen, home button, and test that the fingerprint scanner denies you access. You can also call the phone to know if the speaker and microphone work. But after a full reboot state you can not test the front camera without entering the passcode at least once. Using the camera shortcut on the lock screen will ask you to enter the passcode. But I found out the camera worked the next day after checking my nephews instgram, aaah youth.

My Problem

Digitizer shattered around the ribbon cable.

Like the title says "easy does it". The reason why the digitizer shattered around the ribbon cable connection is because I was not careful when pulling on the suction cup. Instead of applying the pressure equally, I happened to pulled on the side of the display where the ribbon cables are at. Resulting in a sudden release of the latches on one side. This force pulled on the ribbon cables really hard and caused the damage. I have dissemble Iphones many many times. But this time I was rushed and a bit impatient. So the inevitable happened....

My Fix

It took me 10 min (including disassemble the front camera unit from the old display over to the new one) This shouldn't take you more than 20 min giving that you still have to transfer the front camera assembly over from he old display.

My Advice

Take your time and dont rush. Apply force equally. Once the screen starts to lift and there is a gap between the screen and the housing. The best way is not to pull it harder to separate it but rather use a plastic spudger and careful pry it open. Be mindful of the home button ribbon cable. This way you would have more control and less expensive accident.

My Problem

Shattered screen. And a weak battery that I bought a replacement for at an iPhone repair store.

My Fix

First of all be aware that the Display Panel Assembly is not the same thing as the Front Panel Assembly. You save money doing the Display panel assembly kit but it's a bit more treacherous. Otherwise, besides for a few 15min sessions trying to get a single screw in place, the %#*@ thing works! Can't believe it. Snapping the front panel down was one of the more exhilarating feelings I've had! (I know this doesn't make me look very worldly).

My Advice

During Home Button Assembly, when you're putting the phone together, don't worry that the Home Button doesn't "pop" like a regular iPhone button. It will get that "pop," assuming it's placed right, once you re-connect the front panel. Spent a few hours agonizing over whether I should dig the membrane further down until I felt a pop with the home button or proceed with the possibility that I would have to go back and redo the Home Button Assembly. Fortunately, the instructions were simple and correct - don't second guess yourself too much!! (easier said than done). Also if you're doing a screen repair, might as well do a battery replacement as well. It's not much harder and you're already in there.

My Problem

The display was cracked.

My Fix

The repair went fine until I realized I had unexpectedly ordered the iPhone 5s Display Assembly (LCD, Front Panel/Digitizer Only) instead of the iPhone 5s Display Assembly with Front Camera. It added 30 to 45 minutes to the repair for me. Thanks to the iFixit guides I was still able to finish the iPhone 5s repair successfully with everything functioning properly.

My Advice

Unless you enjoy the extra challenge do yourself a favor and order the iPhone 5s Display Assembly with Front Camera. It will save you time and a little stress.

My Problem

I had dropped my phone so many times (without a case because I'm a dummy) that the screen was not working. On top of that, the glass on the screen had dislodged from everything else, so taking the screen off was quite the task. Another issues I had, which I think may have been because of the state of disrepair of my screen, was the green opener snapped on one end, which was disappointing. Luckily, both ends have a similar opening tool on them, so that problem was a non-issue.

My Fix

I would give it a 7/10 (8/10 with rice). Most of the problems were things that could have been avoided, though, nothing against the product or the instructions. First, and I cannot stress this enough, make sure you have an adequate work space. I was working on my desk, which isn't all that big, and keeping track of all the screws was a real pain. Also, lighting was sometimes an issue as I only had my desk lamp and ceiling fan light. Both avoidable.

The instructions were very thorough and walked through the process quite nicely. Another struggle I had (again, completely my fault) was thinking I knew what I was doing. I would see some screws and think - yep, that is the next step. Then I would end up confusing myself because I jumped ahead 2 steps without even knowing it. Follow the instructions if this is your first time, the iPhone is an intricate minx that needs to be treated like an elegant lady. The from start to finish, it probably took me 45 minutes, but it probably should have taken an hour if I would have been more diligent in following the instructions.

My Advice

Take your time, follow the videos/instructions, have ample work space/lighting, and don't be hungover. The last one is crucial.

My Problem

Being an android guy, it took some convincing before I before I bought my daughter a refurbished iPhone. Fearing the worse, I took out the insurance through the carrier. Sure enough, she dropped it coming home from school. Imagine my outrage when they wanted $175 deductible to repair a cracked screen. Being the DIY type (and somewhat on the cheap side), I looked into doing the job myself.

My Fix

Ordered up the repair kit from iFixit since I'd used them to repair old iBooks and Powerbooks. Thought there would be an instruction sheet, but since I didn't see one I went to the website. I also viewed the YouTube video. I also purchased the iSlack just to make sure I didn't do more damage during the repair. Everything is fairly straightforward. I found it easier than replacing the screen on a nexus 4. I struggled a bit reattaching the various cables. I don't care for the connectors that Apple uses. Otherwise it was an easy job, and for half the money my daughter's phone is as good as the day we bought it.

My Advice

Make sure you keep the screws separate as they are different sizes. I lost time finding the right combination when it came time to reassemble the phone. Be patient with the connectors when you reassemble. Otherwise it's an easy job. I don't know why so many people walk around with cracked iPhones. Buy the kit already
