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

The home button on my iPhone 5 fell off and could not use the phone anymore.

My Fix

It went very well. I bought the button and the tools from your site and I used the excellent video that you guys made. I followed it to the letter and had no issues, it took me set by step until the job was completed. I was done in less than 30 minutes.

I did not have the heat pad so I used a blow dryer to help loosen up the button cable very carefully which I would not recommend doing. But, if you have no choice set it to the lowest level of heat and air speed and keep it away from the tiny screws. I was done in about 30 minutes.

My Advice

Get the tools for the job because it will make your job go without a hitch and do not deviate from the video instructions.

My Problem

Battery was weak. The iPhone 5 often showed +50% battery status - then, all of a sudden, the OS shut down.

My Fix

I followed the very good instruction from the fixit-website (https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/iPhone+5+Ba...). The instruction said when removing the display you should pry with the plastic opening tool around the display to loosen the display (steps 6-8). This didn't work with me. I couldn't lift the display high enough to get the opening tool between display and body. But when I finally managed to lift it at the bottom (where the screws were), it came off altogether. Luckily, I didn't pull too hard so I didn't damage the wires.

Another thing was the front panel assembly cable bracket (step 10), see photo. It has curved metal tongues that grab somewhere under the cables. It came off very hard - and it was hard to put it back. I first tried to somehow move the tongues where I thought they should go, but to no avail. Finally, I pressed it tightly down, and the tongues snapped in place. I needed quite a lot of pressure until the tongues "clicked".

My Advice

I had difficulties handling the tiny Phillips screws. Tweezers did the trick.

My Problem

I can't believe it took me until this year to realize I could replace the HDD in my MBP with a SSD. Read up on it to make sure it would work, ordered a drive from elsewhere and used these tools and the teardown guides on iFixIt.

My Fix

Total success - like having a brand new computer!

My Advice

Everything went smoothly. The whole operation took less than 10 minutes.

My Problem

Was having intermittent charge and sync issues with My 4S Doc Connector.

My Fix

Repair was easy with the pictorial repair guide from the website. 1 hour or so is all it took. This was my first repair for this phone.

My Advice

Lay out and tape a big piece of white paper (24" x 24" )to a flat work surface. The tape is so you don't have to worry about catching the paper and shifting all the little screws around by accident. As you take the parts out write on the paper size Ie 1.2mm Phillips etc. and description of part. There is plenty of room to keep the parts separated to help ease any confusion of similar looking screws.

My Problem

My battery of my MacBook pro and the charge port of my iPhone 5

My Fix

I started with my Macbook pro that was simple. Then came the nurve racking part my iPhone 5. This is my daily driver and can't really afford a new phone at the moment. I was a little bit nurvese but I went foward and did my best. Taking the logic board was the hardest part. Second came putting the screen back.

My Advice

There are some parts of the charge port that you need to transfer that the guid does not tell you. Like the grounding wire that goes around the headphone jack. The little fome that is around the mic

My Problem

The LCD display on my 2.2 GHz MacBook Core 2 Duo (late 2007) worked fine when it was part way open but went dark when fully open. I used it for several months while the problem got progressively worse. A little online research convinced me that I had a bad inverter cable. I discovered iFixit had the instructions for replacing the cable so I decided to give it a go. Why buy a new laptop if you can fix the old one for a few dollars?

My Fix

I got a few tools from iFixit and just followed the instructions. There were a couple of spots where I had to look closely and prod gently to figure out how things came apart. I worked slowly and carefully. It was fun. When I was done, the laptop worked perfectly.

My Advice

I put the parts I removed at each step in separate, labeled zip-loc bags. A desk lamp with a built-in magnifying glass was an invaluable tool. I took the opportunity to clean out years of accumulated dust and dirt. I even cleaned the exterior surfaces to make them white again.

The laptop worked so well that I replaced the hard drive with a solid state drive (SSD) and was amazed at the increase in speed. I am enjoying it more now than when it was new.

My Problem

Rear camera stopped responding, black screen only and frozen. Front camera still working fine. Tried hard resets, etc. Replaced the camera and now all is good again. works like new.

My Fix

Fine, followed the guide and all went well. However, there should be a note about bending the flash cable on the new camera.

Only problem was the 00 phillips from ifixit was too big, needed to get a smaller jewellers phillips.

My Advice

Be prepared to bend the flash cable and attache the flash module to the replacement camera.

My Problem

I'm an amateur astronomer. I enjoy taking images of interesting things in the night sky. I have an extra, older Nikon DSLR camera that I decided to risk modifying by removing interior filters to make the camera more sensitive to certain wavelengths of light.

My Fix

I used a cheap 00 screwdriver at first, and stripped two of the first screws. After finding iFixit and ordering a much better set of 00 and 000 screwdrivers, the other screws holding the camera body together came out without a hitch.

My Advice

Bingo - get a better screwdriver and the job goes a lot easier!

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!
