My Problem

Speaker was not working.

My Fix

We live in a rural location. If we had to go to a mall or an Apple store, it would mean a day away from work, gas money for the 4+ hour drive round trip and waiting for it to be fixed. Although these prices are slightly higher than ebay or Amazon, you KNOW you are getting the right part and any necessary pieces to go with it in order to ensure your repair goes smoothly. I will ONLY buy from ifixit in the future.

My Advice

Ribbon cables were the hardest part, I had them out of order causing it to be a pain, but it was my own fault.

My Problem

Original battery was failing

My Fix

I've done battery replacement several times for iPhone 4, 4S, 5 models. While similar, the 5S was a bigger pain in the ass due to 1) the display was %#*@ near impossible to remove, and only came off after an hour of carefully pulling and prying, and; 2) the touch sensor / home button bracket was difficult to remove and reinstall.

My Advice

Next time I do iPhone disassembly, I might take half an Ativan to alleviate the anxiety of potentially destroying my display as I pull, poke and prod to remove it. An incredibly nervewracking experience.

Also, I heated the back of the case before attempting any steps to remove battery - the adhesive strips slid out like butter.

Next time I will buy the iSclack.

My Problem

Lens cracked

My Fix

Couldn't put it back together

My Advice

Have a professional do it

My Problem

The battery was worn and would not hold a charge

My Fix

Very easy except for one glue strip which gave a bit of trouble.

My Advice

Follow the guide step by step and everything will go smoothly. Especially the part to heat up the phone slightly to help with the glue strips.

My Problem

well my phone was not charging and I took my phone apart to find that when I actually looked into the lighting connector it was just full of dirt

My Fix

easy all I did was take a tweezers and took out the dust of the connector, but don't just do it blindly, grab a light and start sliding it out

My Advice

easy and ridicules

My Problem

There were sporadic audio problems with earbuds. The last replacement battery also didn't hold a charge very well, so I swapped it out to no avail. Same issue with the new battery. I guess that's the nature of the iPhone 3GS.

My Fix

It went quite well.

My Advice

In the last segment of the repair video it might be helpful to mention that the Headphone Jack Assembly ribbon needs to be bent and shaped where the white markings are, and the adhesive covers removed carefully or one at a time. Also the contacts for the volume control and the on/off switch perhaps deserve an explanation. I could figure it out, but a brief explanation of what needs to happen would have been helpful.

My Problem

Absolutely destroyed screen. Little kids had some fun with it.

My Fix

Well enough, however I lost some screws and the cables were really annoying to work with.

My Advice

If you don't have a magnetic project mat, either buy one immediately or develop your own organization system. Mine was not effective, though, and I lost 2 screws, a P #000 1.7 mm and a P #000 1.6 mm.

My Problem

Battery would not stay charged.

My Fix

Getting the case open was the hardest part. I wish the tools had two ends. They wore out quickly. After the case was open the repair went pretty fast. I have a lot of soldering experience and that helped. Reassembly was easy.

My Advice

I did not remove the logic board to unsolder the old leads from the holes and insert the new leads in the holes. Rather I just left the board in, unsoldered the old battery leads and tacked the new ones on using the existing solder. Worked fine!

My Problem

Replacing failed SSD

My Fix

Everything went well. Only Sony should have found better speaker covers (current ones may tear or require gluing back) as you access screws or better still screws could have been installed elsewhere. The only issue I now face is lack of sound from internal speaker/headphones. After reinstalling a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 i downloaded from Microsoft because I don't have an original recovery disc. The speaker icon is muted and when i hover it says "No output device is installed" Tried to install drivers from Sony site nothing happens. Troubleshoot says could not find any audio services. Is it possible i disturbed the sound card? Out of curiosity, where is the sound card located and what is the role of the yellow flexible flat cable above the ssd? BTW I can play music via a wireless speaker. I would appreciate any help regarding the same

My Advice

Remember to keep track (label) of the screws as you disassemble because they are of different lengths. Ensure you separate the ones used outside and inside.

My Problem

Change LCD and Digitiser.

My Fix

Owwww, such a pain to dig in those Z3 parts. All packed together and tiny. Must have : Tweezers.

And got the new screen from a Chinese company, cheap quality. Fake colour and screen cracked with slight pressure.

My Advice

Be very careful and patient.
