My Problem

I have a FIIO X5s High Def music player and the back had been pulled open by the magnetic stand that I was using to hold it to my cars dash. It has 2 small screws that hold the back plate in place. The screw drive that I received wass perfect for the job. I was able to replace the back plate and secure it easily.

My Fix

It went well

My Advice

No

My Problem

Iphone drained battery had to repair, but didnt have tools... Lost em

My Fix

Easy fix just waited for shipping

My Advice

Beready for a long but worthwhile wait for shipping, mine didnt have tracking but was told earlier on that if have to wait 2-7 weeks for it to come

My Problem

My Iphone 5s developed a microphone issue after a few months of use. I couldn't be heard when making a phone call unless I used my speakerphone. I tried dealing with my cellphone carrier on a repair or replacement as it was under warranty. They sent me a "like new" replacement however this "new" phone had more problems then my original. They said they had to work out the replacement phone issues with Apple Care next, otherwise there is nothing else they can do for me. To make a long story short, I told them to pound sand and returned the replacement phone and switched back to my iPhone 4s for the time being. One day I decided I really want to get back to my 5s so I looked into repairing it and found this website.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The step by step guide was a big help, wouldn't have tried it without it. The guide was missing a couple steps at the end of the tear down however. There are two more parts that need to be removed from the original lightning connector and headphone jack assembly. There is a small bracket that the home button connection is glued to that has to be removed and installed on the replacement, and the microphone has a small rubber boot around it that has to removed and installed over the replacement microphone. Likely through my research another reviewer point this out so I didn't miss it. Otherwise the repair went just fine with the guide. I was a little mad that the required flat headed screwdriver was mentioned in the guide but not included in the required tools list. I was able to make a screwdriver I had work but I would have liked to have the right size for the job. The only mistakes I had were I got a connector that was next to the battery stuck under the logic board when I was reassembling and didn't notice until I had the board all screwed down. So I had to removed the logic board twice but likely there was no damage. I also had a hard time getting the home button reconnected as the small amount of adhesive wouldn't stick after being removed from the original connector. And I couldn't for the life of me get the securing clip for the home button connection to hook on to the metal hooks on the backside of the connector. I could only snap it in the front which with a little pull pops it out. I spent a good hour trying to hook this clip and ended up just snapping it in the front and putting the phone back together. Not too worried as everything is pretty tight in the phone and its not coming apart again unless something else dies. Overall, I'm glad I decided to purchased the parts and tools and make the repair. Phone is working just like new now.

My Advice

My advice would to purchase all the required tools mentioned in the guide including the flat head screwdriver (2.5mm?). The screws are UNBELIEVABLY small and need these designed magnetic screwdrivers to make it work. Also you will be wise to lay out the steps requiring removal of parts and screws on a piece of paper with some clear or white tape to stick the small parts to so you don't lose them during the repair. Also helps you lay out the screws in order so you don't mix them up when it comes time to reassemble. The website sells a magnetic white board for this purchase if you are only doing the one repair then so some paper and tape work just fine. Also I would advise to just take your time and don't force anything. It took me probably 5 hours from start to finish with 1 hour wasted with trying to hook that clip securing the home button connection. The only thing I wished I had known before I did the repair was about needing the flat head screwdriver, partly my fault as it was mentioned in the guide but wasn't in the tools list so I didn't purchase it, next time I will buy it.

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.
