Screen has lines running on it, tells me the connection of the display module has problem
Perfect, iSlack is useful but still need help
Its very tight for iSlack to open in first trial, you need to still use the suction cup a bit, but be careful not to be too 'excited' on the opening process, once it shows movement, switch back to iSlack to prevent killing your precious Touch ID

Realized the back glass was broken, don't know how it happened, but it was. So I looked up what to do and found your site. Then I decided to also replace the dock connector because I when I used my phone I had to put the other person on speaker or they couldn't hear me. The sweet girl at the Apple store had told me the only solution was to replace the phone with the latest $$$ model.
Replacing the back class was easy, although one of the screws was striped. I sent a question in, but then I found three solutions and between the three, I finally got that li'l bugger screw out. so while I had it open I went for it and followed the guide to replacing the dock connector. I had trouble understanding what part was what:
battery connector from the socket (what socket)
speaker enclosure assembly
home button ribbon cable ZIF socket.
And that is where I got into trouble. Those ribbon cables and how to put them out of the way while I'm working. Was worried as to how delicate they were so apparently I didn't move the home button ribbon far enough out of the way and as soon as I moved the dock connector, the home button ribbon tore. So now I have placed my order for that.
All in all it was a good experience. I am having to wait on the home button ribbon part, but I was able to do something I believed was difficult. Your instructions made it easy.
1. maybe a picture with part names just for us idiots. the warning on working with the small parts such as ribbons; how far to pull out of the way or not pull. A picture of that small part.
2. instructions just say: To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order....well that's not necessarily true.
A. The new part doesn't have a retaining flap on the home button ribbon cable ZIF socket.
B. There are parts that have protective plastic covering (on the dock connector part and the back glass as well). Some of us may not realize where they all are and some may not even realize it needs to be removed.
Suggestion to an inexperienced person attempting the dock connector replacement or anything in that area of the phone: Before each step, check the step comment icon at the top right of each step. They will give you a heads up on problems and solutions before you make a mistake.

My phone was having trouble charging. Had to hold cable "just right".
Everything went well with the repair and my phone was fully functional afterwards. However the next day my touch ID stopped working and I haven't been able to figure out why. Not sure if it is related to the repair. Anyway, my phone now charges correctly.
Take it slow. Make sure you have something to hold the screws and small parts with. I used a piece of packing tape attached to a paper plate.

The headphone jack on on my S4 active has become half operational. The microphone or controls are no longer functioning, however I still get music through the headphones, so I just have to use the touchscreen instead of the built in headphone controls.
After full dissasembly of the S4 Active, I discovered taht the headphone jack is integrated into the rear frame and thus was unable to replair the jack with the parts I ordered. I foolishly assumed that the jack was a singular component instead of integrated. After looking up a few more You tube videos on the S4 active, I discovered that the rear panel has multiple integrated parts, the speaker, headphone jack, and something else which escapes me at the moment. Therefore, the repair is still not complete, and I am just going to wait another month and upgrade my phone anyway....
make sure that you fully analyze your repair and make sure you get the right parts.

My Nexus 5 and Macbook took a spill unto a concrete floor from a railing about 5 feet up.
The tools worked perfectly, the repair guide was perfect and everything came out perfect!
Don't put expensive, delicate items on railings.

thought i had a bad power supply because iMac had a problem turning on
the repair went well 1 hour start to finish. wish i would have read a few more forums turned out it is the button after all according to apple my entire housing needs to be replaced in order to fix this. but i read a forum and as stupid as it sounds pick iMac up turn it upside down then touch the power button and it turns on no problem ugggghhh
read forums. bottom line although the parts worked and the install went well. i really didn't need a power supply after all and i don't want to take my iMac apart again to send it back if they would take it back in the first place

I dropped my Macbook Pro Mid 2014 during what I assume to be a drunken rampage, since I don't recall how the damage came to be. I assume either my foolish self (or dirty hippie friends) threw my then 4 month-old gorgeous aluminum baby onto the floor and/or wall in a fit of disgust, leaving the bottom righthand corner slightly bent. When I awoke the next day, the colours popping out of my Retina display were slightly brighter from that corner. On a black background, it was apparent that the aluminum casing was pressing on the back of the LCD display. Being the smart man I am, I decided to try and bend it back. I thought it worked until I turned on MBP and saw that the LCD display had cracked into some absolutely lovely lines of dead pixels running up and across from the corner.
The repair went pretty well overall. Took around an hour and a half for me, but the display assembly repair probably would have taken 30 minutes if it wasn't for two issues:
1) The T8 screwdriver iFixit sent me didn't work. The metal screwdriver tip was not securely glued into the plastic handle, so I was lucky I had a backup set of Torx drivers.
2) One of the display hinges on the replacement display assembly was slightly bent. I didn't notice it at first when I first installed it, but after closing the lid, it was apparent that the new display did not sit flush with the body of the MBP, having being skewed off a couple of millimetres to one side. My fix for this was having pliers and applying slight pressure onto the hinge to straighten it out. After a couple of rounds of bending the hinge straight, the new display fit on flush and snug, just like new.
1. Please check that all your tools are working, and you have access to pliers in case you get a bent display hinge.
2. To check to see if the hinge is bent, look down the length of the metal display hinge rod and see if it is flush & parallel with the outer edge of the display assembly. Compare with your existing display hinge for help. The one I received was slightly off center by a couple of degrees, meaning I had to use pliers to slightly bend it back straight in line with the edge. Be gentle and double check constantly!
3. Don't allow your dirty hippie friends near your MBP whilst drinking. Don't try to be a hero and bend an aluminum display back yourself. And get a case I guess.
