My Problem

Dust entered my iPhone and decided to settle inside the camera lens. I thought this will be impossible to fix but iFixIt came to rescue.

My Fix

It went without a hitch, unscrewed the phone and opened using iSclack. Cleaned things out and closed up again. The only scary moment was detaching the screen as it is not bending away beyond 90deg. This makes it hard to unscrew the tiny bracket philips screws that are holding the screen connectors in place. But it ended up being fine.

My Advice

Some internet videos show that one can pull out the camera without disconnecting the screen, I would not try that, the iPhone screen is very stiffly attached through ribbons to the rest of the iPhone. One might rip the ribbon cables otherwise.

My Problem

I was having trouble with my iphone 4s and the wifi grey button, i decided to buy the things to fix it.

My Fix

Well the repair went better than expected, with the propper tools all go fine.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to repair things by yourself, just be patient and do research about what you are going to do.

My Problem

The iPhone Lightning connector on my iPhone was starting to become unreliable, as if it wasn't making a connection. I tired the usual fixes (wiggling the Lightning cable until it connected; blowing out the connector jack with canned air) but these were not permanent solutions. The final straw was when the phone battery died overnight twice in one week (while connected to the Lightning cable) and my alarm didn't go off.

My Fix

I purchased the Lightning Connector / Headphone Jack assembly and the P2 Pentalobe driver. I already have the Pro Tech Toolkit. Using the replacement guide found on the web site, I was able to replace the connector and reassemble the phone back to 100% working condition in less than an hour. The written directions and pictures were clear and concise. Overall an excellent guide.

My Advice

The guide says to use a Phillips #00 screwdriver. While that works for most of the screws, I found that using a #000 worked better (especially during reassembly). Also, if you undertake this procedure, be aware that reconnecting the antenna cable connector takes patience. Even with nimble fingers and good eyesight, this took me a while to get seated properly.

My Problem

Ear piece speaker did not work due to moisture corrosion

My Fix

Step by step instructions were spot on.

My Advice

This unit has some moisture damage and Apple quoted $315 for repair. This $25 repair fixed it all.

I did have to remove some corrosion from the speaker connector but an eraser on the end of a pencil took care of that, followed up with some alcohol to clean it off. Plugging the connectors back onto the main board can take a couple of tries. Be patient and it will all go fine.

My Problem

Both phones (iPhone 5 and Moto X) had batteries older than 2 years and required frequent charging.

My Fix

Both phones were relatively easy to repair. Your guides and uTube videos were very helpful. Also other uTube videos not from ifixit were informative as well. Be very careful to check the iPhone power switch cable connector, took me 2 additional disassemblies before I got it right. Both repairs went great, saved a ton of money and did not have to switch phones.

My Advice

Take your time and don't force anything. Make sure you are getting a new battery. People are selling used batteries on eBay and Amazon.

My Problem

Siri doesn't work on my iPhone so after some Google research i concluded i had to replace the front facing camera and sensor cable. The cable includes the microphone used by Siri.

My Fix

With the tools and cable I ordered it was, although scary, a not to difficult experience. I had some trouble bending the cable so the sensors fit in their dedicated position. After replacing the cable SIRI actually worked for a short period of time. After that it stopped working again. I tried every option known to mankind…. uhhh… Google, to get it to work again, alas to no avail.

My Advice

I guess Siri doesn't like me anymore but it's absolutly worth the exercise although it didn't work out the way i hoped. I suspect it to be a software glitch as many reports on internet state. But on the other hand I might have damaged the microphone while mounting the cable.

And, above a certain age you need a magnifying glass, a good light source and steady hands to handle the incredibly small screws.

SOLVED:

After reading the advice about the small hole in the mic on the ribbon, I decided to once again open up the phone and cleaned the strip below to where the mic should be placed. With a sharp needle I widened the small hole on the baseplate, right where the small microphone hole should be so air could pass. This solved my problem completely.

My Problem

Volume and sighlent switch didn't work.

My Fix

You need one hour not for beginners.

My Advice

Flat able was completely broken, take care wit the mounting place. Check there is no pressure on the cable from battery.

My Problem

bought tools and screen

My Fix

tricky but I managed.

My Advice

No. It is all very well explained. I must be done with calm and concentration. Thankyou

My Problem

Because my BEAUTIFUL daughter is a clutz!

My Fix

Just like it should, thanks to your how to video!!

My Advice

Be patient and have a work space away from distraction and animals, allow plenty of time for the first one, LOL! the second one goes smoother!

My Problem

Lightning connector developed a short which made charging difficult.

My Fix

Everything went very smoothly until the last step. The guide was perfect, detailing everything you needed to know. Unfortunately, there should have been one final step. There are 3 components that need to be reused from your old Lightning connector assembly. The guide doesn't mention anything about this at all. I was able to figure it out pretty easily because I work on cars for a living - many times without repair information - but I suspect this oversight may trip up quite a few people. I tried to submit an edit but it was rejected. Perhaps I didn't format it right or something. In any case I still think iFixit needs to update this guide, but if they don't I've attached two photos showing the 3 components. Other than that, it was a fairly uneventful repair (expect when I broke a battery adhesive strip).

My Advice

DON'T BREAK THE BATTERY ADHESIVE STRIPS!!! Seriously, take your time and follow the guide EXACTLY! I got the first strip out perfectly in one piece. The second broke almost immediately. I later realized it was because I pulled it at a 45 degree angle, which was perfect for the first one, but the second was supposed to be pulled straight up. Doh! If you do break it, heat the CRAP out of it with a hairdryer (min. 5 minutes with 1800w unit on high) and use the guitar string trick. Forget the dental floss, I don't know why they even mention it. Breaking the 2nd adhesive strip added well over an hour to the job. Don't do it. Take your time and you'll have a much nicer time!
