My Problem

I find there is black spot on the iphone 5 rear camera.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 is one of the early models (Sept 2012) that have a manufacturing defect on both battery & power button. Apple acknowledged the problem and has a free repair program. My phone qualified for both battery & power button repair programs. However, Apple customer service denied "free" service, because my phone has a cosmetic dent in the frame next to the audio jack. Cosmetic = 0.3mm dent !!! See picture. Apple would still do the repairs, only I had to pay $279 + tax. Thank you so much Apple!! I really appreciate your help, but no thanks! So I decided to do the repair myself and involve my 5year old daughter in the project. She was thrilled :)

My Fix

I studied the guides & videos on iFixit.com several times. The information is spot on and the repair went great. The biggest issue was keeping organized and knowing each screw where it came from. The "Anti-Static Project Tray" helped loads. Overall, a very successful repair. Daughter was happy too to help daddy :)

My Advice

It was unclear to me wether the defective part was the power button itself, or the "Audio Control and Power Button Cable". The information on iFixit.com is also unclear saying 'it might be' the button or 'it might be' the cable. In fairness, you can't really know. So after replacing the power button, it sometimes worked and sometimes not. I then ordered and replaced the audio cable as well. This fixed the button fully. It now works every time and battery lasts about 2 days on average usage.

My Problem

Power button and volume Up stopped working. Figured I would repair phone and keep as a spare.

My Fix

The repair was a little more involved than I thought but interesting to see how it all goes together. Followed the instructions provided on the website. Tip: I used my gopro dash mount suction cup to remove the display.

My Advice

If you are comfortable working with computers or crafts you can do this task. For this particular swap it took me about an hour. Make sure you get the correct tools.

My Problem

After a hard fall onto a hardwood floor, the screen cracked.

My Fix

Overall it was surprisingly easy, especially because of the easy to follow guides here on ifixit.com. The only part of the repair that was somewhat problematic was getting the multi-connector cable to fit back into the phone when putting it back together. Getting it put back in the correct direction was a bit of a puzzle. But eventually I managed to do it by really examining the pictures. At the end of the repair the phone booted up with no issues at all.

My Advice

I would have payed a little more attention to how the cable that connects everything together was situated and layered before removing it, maybe even taking some photos of it myself from several angles.

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

The rear camera got damaged after an accident where the iPhone hit the floor a little bit to hard. Even the rear case got damaged. And then the battery only worked for a hour, I desided it was time to do something.

My Fix

Thanks to Ifixit, I got both the "how-to" and the replacement parts. It took a long time - almost 5 hours! The repair did go well, even the tiny parts, but I had to redo something - some connectors who got forgotten (difficult to use the phone when You forgot to connect the cellular data antenna...). But I'm satisfied - the phone is saved from the trashcan - it works as it is brand new!

My Advice

The "how-to" could be a little more informative on how to assemble the iPhone - I got some problems because some of the connectors were hiding under the "main unit". But overall: Can I, can You!

My Problem

The rear cover was shattered

My Fix

Everything went pretty smooth at the start. The pentalobe screwdriver worked awesomely, even though the screws were a little stripped.

The ifixit back cover is really nice.

When I tried to slip it into position, it just wouldn't come down all the way. I tried several times until I gave up and installed the old shattered cover.

A few hours later I tried again without success. I just left it on the table and after 15 minutes, my wife come with the cover perfectly in place!

She told me she pushed the new cover with the table... I'm really glad she did it, even though I didn't know how she really did.

My Advice

The new cover needs more force to get into place than the original... just be sure not to damage it.

My Problem

The power/lock button stopped working and also the phone was barely able to stay alive for 15 minutes.

My Fix

I followed the repair guide and by and large the repair went very well. I skipped steps 20 and 21 as it is not necessary to remove the front facing camera for this repair. When I got to the power/lock button, I couldn't see any difference between the new one I bought and the one that was in the phone. However, I continued and replaced the old button with the new one anyway. I tested it once I reinstated the two 1.5 mm Phillips screws securing the power button bracket to the outer case, but it still did not 'click' or even move when I pressed the button. On further examination, it seemed that the problem was that the button does not make contact with the actual physical button on the securing bracket. So I removed the bracket and then the button. I decided to modify the button so that the small circular disc inset into the button had a bit more height. To do this I decided to use a two part epoxy glue (Araldite), of which I applied a very small amount with a tooth pick. To prevent the drop spreading out and flattening, I place it right-side up (i. e. glue side down) on two toothpicks until the glue had set. This worked well and it seems that you only about 1 - 1.5 mm of additional height. I would say that the correct part to replace would actually be the Power and Sensor Cable. I can't see how this fault would ever be the button, although replacing then Power and Sensor Cable is a bit more work. Anyway, I was happy with my fix and it seem to do the trick. From here I reassembled the phone following the guide in reverse and installed the new battery when I got to it. Completed reassembly and then plugged into the charger to charge up the new battery. After a few minutes the Apple logo appeared so I felt it was good. However, after the phone was on charge for a few hours, it did not boot to the home screen. Every time I removed the charge cable and re-inserted it, the logo would appear then disappear but would not boot up the the home screen. At this stage I was feeling uneasy and wondering if I had bricked it. But I decided that I would not panic yet, and as it was late, I would take a break and get some sleep then take a fresh look at it in the morning.

So after a good sleep, I decided that most likely (or at least, I hoped) I hadn't attached one or more of the cable connectors properly. So I decided to disassemble up to step 19 - removing the logic board. I then reassembled, taking a bit more time getting the logic board in place and this time it felt 'right'. I also took more time reattaching all the various ribbon connectors taking care to align them and ensure they snapped in place. I finally got the two screws by the dock connector back in. Turned it over, and voila! The home screen!.

I was so relieved. A successful repair.

The phone is going great, and battery life is like new.

My Advice

Take your time. Read the guide several times before you start. Watch the video a few time as well. Read all the comments relating to each step, which are after the last step of the guide. The steps where there are more than one screw of different sizes, put each sized screw in a separate cubby and in the order that they are mentioned in the guide. If your phone does not work at first don't panic. Calmly redo the disassembly and reassemble paying more care to ensuring the connectors all snap in positively.

My Problem

Was no longer sensitive most of the time.

My Fix

Home button itself was repaired without a hitch. However, the issue was with the cables for the LCD and digitizer, which got damaged by my yanking on them too hard when replacing everything. It was a learning experience as to how to be careful wtih the cable.

My Advice

Be slow and careful, ensure when dealing with the cables to be extra sensitive when threading them back through after putting the glass back on.
