My Problem

The whole top of my screen was broken off, and after a while the cable controlling touch snapped. so after months of disuse i decided to fix it myself after going to a apple technical and them telling me it would be $200

My Fix

It was difficult but after an hour i had fixed it, i could not be more happy.

My Advice

make sure to repair any dented corners before placing the screen, or it will not fit in the housing

My Problem

cracked screen from my 8 year old dgt.

My Fix

repair went well, instructions clear and precise.

dgt. says it looks like a new ipod touch

My Advice

thanks.

My Problem

A friend of mine has had a badly cracked iPod 4 for a little while before i fixed it. Literally the whole screen was screwed to the point it was hard to use. Some parts of the glass fell out and you could even see some of the internal components. Nasty stuff I tell you! I decided to fix give it a try and fix it for him, without the apple price tag.

My Fix

To be truthful, I don't know how i managed doing this at all. the screen was shattered into little pieces and was very difficult to get all the glass off without damaging the internal components. Then I had to make sure the glue was all off because a lot of the little glass pieces were still stuck to it. But i was eased when i finished getting the nasty screen off because I had some really easy instructions from ifixit's website. I just followed the procedure and almost everything went according to plan. Only issue that occurred was with the adhesive. on the left side of the iPod, i believe i didn't put the adhesive on correctly because that portion of the screen seems to bulge just a little bit, but I'm sure if my friend gets a good case to protect his iPod from cracking again, it should be no problem.

My Advice

Good advice, hmm. Well first of all note that the entire front panel is basically glass and stuck the internal components. So, if you got a crack, that screen is gonna split and be difficult to take off, it should be no problem, but you gotta make sure no glass is left behind. Otherwise it might take up space in the components when you try to reinstall a new screen. Also when you get to the part when you put the new screen cable on the logic board, don't be afraid to pull at the logic board a bit to get as much space to put your fingers under it. I was really afraid to do it because i would not like having to replace a broken logic board as well. To be truthful, putting that cable on took a lot of time. Had to do it carefully to make sure i didn't bend anything or break anything.

My Problem

original battery reached end of lifecycle

My Fix

well! took some time, because of sothering new battery to device. quite tricky but feasible with a nice repair Tutor video on the net.

My Advice

be VERY careful with that sothering of battery, cause extremely close to delicate pieces that wouldn't bear a damage if coming to close with sothering iron

My Problem

iPod Touch fell hard for a dark seductress known as "asphalt." Sad to say, the encounter left him in pieces.

My Fix

Using a hair dryer as a heat gun was interesting and noisy, but it worked in the end. I still hate them, though; give me screws and a screwdriver any day. The screen doesn't sit flush with the rest of the device, I'll have to disassemble again to see if I can get that right.

My Advice

This is not an easy fix, and it probably won't turn out perfect on the first try. Have patience, and get help if you get stuck.

My Problem

A coworker dropped their iPod touch twice onto a cement driveway, cracking the glass. They asked me to replace it rather than pay $35 and have a three week wait.

My Fix

Started fixing theirs, and cracked the LCD in the process. Swapped out the screen from my ipod and ordered a replacement screen. The replacement didn't come with a home button, so now I'm down a home button. :( so I ordered one of those, put it in, and now it works wonderfully. Cracked an LCD screen in the process of replacing the first one, but other than that, smooth sailing for me.

My Advice

Careful with the LCD screens. They crack easily

My Problem

My friend did not want to tackle it.

My Fix

Took my time, followed the you tube video. It came out very well. I can see how practice would make it quite easy.

My Advice

Watch the video through several times before starting repair, then have it beside you and start and stop as you proceed. TAKE YOUR TIME!

My Problem

My issue was a weak battery, the battery wouldn't hold a charge for more than an hour or so.

My Fix

I followed each step to the letter and I had no problems removing or re-installing the battery.

My Advice

I had to perform a factory reset due to a completely white screen upon initial power up. I found a video online on how to do said reset, I think I held down the home and power buttons for 10 seconds or so and voila! Also don't use a razor to scrape off the old glue or you'll end up scraping of some of the black paint off. Despite the mishap with the paint and the reset everything works great.

My Problem

A friend of mine offered to give me her broken iPhone if I could get her pictures off of it for her. I run a local computer/electronic repair shop, and I hadn't had a project like this before, but I decided I would give it a shot.

My Fix

I followed the walkthrough on ifixit, and the repair went very smoothly. Just take your time and follow the instructions, they work perfectly. The only problem that I had, though, is that the I started taking the phone apart via the GSM guide, and got about 10 steps in before I realized that I was using the wrong guide (I needed a CDMA guide). Maybe we could get a bit clearer indication of which device is featured in circumstances like these, where devices are very similar. Other than that, excellent service ifixit.com, you guys are fantastic. Repair took about 2 hours if I remember correctly.

My Advice

The magnetic project mat was invaluable, I would suggest it to anyone who works with small electronic parts. Just take it easy and make sure you give yourself plenty of time.

My Problem

My buddy stepped on his iPod Touch 4G and thought he was going to do the repair himself. Unfortunately, the overseas company he ordered his replacement screen from did not include the adhesive strips and he had no idea how much was involved on the 4G. I offered to do it for him.

My Fix

The repair went well... As usual, your tear downs and project walkthrough .pdfs were my ace in the hole. He's happy to have his iPod running again.

My Advice

I will say that if I had to do a 4G touch again, I'd advise to purchase the mid-frame just because all that glue scraping meant it was a little ratty looking by time I was through. It's ok, though.

Also, the copper cooling strip (I'm guessing) for the main camera is super fragile and that point is made... just a few steps too late in the walkthrough. lol. That's me being nit picky, though.

Overall.. a big win. Thanks, iFixit!
