My Problem

The charge port on my iphone 5 would not work. I thought I would try to repair myself.

My Fix

Not well. Once I replaced the part, the phone would not turn back on. The apple logo would flash and then turn off and on again.

My Advice

There is a rubber boot that needs to come off the old port that is not explained in any of the videos. Work slowly. I believe I messed up the new part and have ordered another to try it again. I already bought a new phone, so this one is just for experiment. The P2 Pentalobe Screwdriver from Ifixit was the best. I had another set that was of poor quality. I would buy all my tools from here from now on.

My Problem

Ordered from iFixit a battery because it was not that good but that was not enough so I ordered a iPhone 4S Dock Connector and replaced the and that worked.

The phone is now perfect

My Fix

Everything was very easy with all that excellent repair guides

My Advice

Follow the Repair Guides

My Problem

The two-year old iPhone 5 lost battery capacity and got hot during charging. In addition, its screen began to bulge outwards and got psychedelic background colors. From iFixit stories, we understood that the battery was due for replacement.

My Fix

Following the procedure given by iFixit, the fix was straightforward. All described problems were encountered but overcome. But one comment: The procedure mentioned that the battery was glued to the phone and some careful prying would be required. But you would not imagine how intensely hard our old battery stuck to the phone - most probably due to the glue being dried out from heat during charging. However, with a combination of good prying tools, strong finger muscles, thoughtful carefulness and quite a lot of patience - we struggled with this battery glue for almost an hour before the battery eventually came out - the fix was a success!

My Advice

Be careful and take your time with the old battery. Drag plastic tab, and pry where shown in iFixit procedure, and the battery glue will be defeated, gradually, slowly...!

My Problem

Broken Screen and a pretty faulty front facing camera! Be cautions when taking off a phone case to enjoy that new screen you just replaced... the bare phone is just a *little* less grippy, and you might find yourself back where you started!

My Fix

Pretty alright! A couple of issues, and unfortunately the new screen got cracked in a couple of places, but from what I hear that's almost a given the first time around. Took me about one relatively frustrating hour, mostly dealing with re-shaping the case from bends from impact damage.

My Advice

A few things!

1) never force it. If the screen isn't settling in, IT WONT FIT. There's some pressure needed, but be a good judge. Glass is not flexible.

2) Check the rim for bends and damage. Often when the screen is cracked, the impact was enough to bend the metal rim around it. If it's not almost perfectly shaped, that glass will not fit!

3) when using the opening tools, gently slide the tip up each side - don't jam it in there like a pry bar, you just want a bit of gently wedge pressure moving up to dislodge the screen.

4) Don't be surprised (or discouraged!) if your first screen (or two) breaks. Repairing electronics is an art and takes practice. It might be expensive now, but after you learn a few times, It'll be easy and you'll really start saving money! (and impressing your friends)

5) work on a nice, flat table. avoid edges where you can drop and lose those teensy teensy screws (oops)

6) keep the leftovers! If anything can be salvaged, don't toss it. When you upgrade, keep the old tech around to practice repairs on. As stated before, practice makes perfect! and perfect makes money :)

My Problem

Someone I knew had a home button that was falling out.

My Fix

Fine super easy took about 15 minutes.

My Advice

Take your time I only did it quick because I use to be an Apple Genius.

My Problem

iphone 5 power button - no function - no click, just mushy feel

My Fix

completed. pretty difficult. not too bad as far as opening, motherboard removal, battery removal. removing the power button cable harness and the mute, vol and power switches it some major fiddly work. need the whole harness as it holds the power switch.

My Advice

don't assume you will remember how to "reverse the steps". you wont on a really involved repair. take photos. make good notes. use duct tape sticky side up to hold bits in groups. write on the tape with a sharpie to note groups. Or get the magnetic whiteboard thing iFixit sells which certainly would help. don't drop stuff on the ground. if you are fiddling with screws keep them close to the work surface so if you lose grip they wont travel too far. use magnetized screwdrivers. you can make any screwdriver magnetic by stroking it with a strong fixed magnet for a few minutes. (but keep the magnets away from the motherboard). buy some strong reading glasses to see close up. don't take peyote before attempting an iphone repair.

My Problem

My dock connector was very loose and I could only get it charge by jiggling the plug just right. Decided I would also replace battery as well.

My Fix

The dock replacement guide has you remove the battery so since it was original I decided to replace it. The guide was very thorough and I only had one hiccup when one of the screws on the dock connector cover did not want to budge. Some careful persuasion and finally got it out - after that everything went per instructions. Phone booted up - everything working great.

My Advice

Follow the guide carefully, don't get creative. The guide did a good job of pointing out the gotchas.

My Problem

Kara dropped her Grandma's iPhone and the back glass shattered. Kara felt very bad, but I told her we can fix Grandma's phone. When the IFIXIT repair kit arrived she was very excited. It took about 30 minutes, counting video and picture-taking time. Kara was very happy and Grandma and Grampa were very proud! ;-D

My Fix

Kara did a great job with just a little bit of help from Grandpa!

My Advice

Very easy repair. Even a four-year-old can do it.

sorry, the pictures would not upload. Here they are: https://www.flickr.com/photos/joe_a/sets...

My Problem

The ear piece volume was greatly reduced. Had to use speaker phone for calls

My Fix

Almost perfect. I put it all back together and the center of the display would not respond to touch. Took it apart again and found the piece of black tape in step 22 got into the socket of the digitizer plug (it must have gotten stuck to the tweezer when I restuck it down. Put it back together and it's fine. Ear piece volume perfect. Thanks

My Advice

Take a few pictures as you go so you can zoom in to see more detail. Also use some sort of a magnifier to enlarge the work being done, I bought an inexpensive hood type that fits on my head. There are a few YouTube videos out there that complement the ifixit instructions. I hate when I'm forced to upgrade (I'm using the original OS too) THANKS ifixit!!!!
