My Problem

The bottom microphone would only work intermittently so I could hear people who called me but after a few seconds, they could not hear me. Eventually, it stopped working altogether.

My Fix

Ordered a new dock connector (which has the microphone attached) and smartphone repair kit and watched the video a couple of times and read the instructions a couple of times too. The battery needed some prying to get it out of the glue, and the home button ribbon cable is so tiny, it took a few tries to get it together properly. Also the main ribbon connector took some patience to get it seated properly. The whole process took about 30 minutes because I was being extremely slow and careful. SUCCESS!! It fired back up and now works perfectly. Although a bit daunting to start with, I now look back and it seems like the easiest thing to do. Great instructions - anyone can do this!

My Advice

Watch for plastic sheet tabs that have to be peeled off the new part.

Order the repair kit - it has all the tools you need and the little boxes for all the screws really help.

The home button ribbon cable is small and hard to see. It looks like it lays on top of the connector, but it actually slides into a minuscule slot on the side opposite the little pop-up clamp. Tweezers were a must.

Don't force the main ribbon cable connector back on. When it's carefully aligned it will snap into place and you'll know you got it right by the little click you'll hear.

My Problem

Back cover broken, and battery and dock connector problems.

My Fix

In reviewing your step by step instructions before ordering parts. I determined bottom screws needed the recommended replacements. Ordered parts and kit and all arrived in a few days. Sat down used my magnetic pad, previously ordered, and only used tools provided in kits. The instructions were very helpful, and were right on on possible problems I might encounter. In a short time, and day, I had completed tasks, charging and phone back in use.

My Advice

Reviewing instructions, and using magnetic pad, and tweezers have always been a great help. Do not under estimate your self, you can do it!

My Problem

My iPhone 4 had a bad dock connector which caused have phone to have no sound.

My Fix

the Process was simple compared to other iPods i have taken apart. the plastic opening tools make the removal of fragile components easier, perfect for me who is good at screwing up and breaking things. it took 15 minutes and the phone is like new.

My Advice

If you phone breaks go to ifixit and get the tools and components you need.

My Problem

My iPhone 4 wouldn't charge or sync

My Fix

The repair it's self went well but I had to troubleshoot. The video was more than help for getting everything removed and put back together. The only problem I had was that once I put everything back together I still had the same problem, no charge or sync. After two tries, turns out the connector didn't seat properly into the logic board, it needs to click, a small click. After that bam! good as new!!

My Advice

Make sure your docking connector cable seats and clicks into the logic board. Otherwise it won't work.It's small and a little trying but it needs to be seated properly and will give a small click once in place.

My Problem

My iphone 4 dock connector stopped accepting charges with the message "This accessory may not be supported". And that was with Apple cables and chargers. All attempts to clean the dock connector yielded no results.

My Fix

It was fairly straight forward, just keep a paper, pen, and tape handy to identify and secure screws at each step.

My Advice

I had to redo the procedure because my home button didn't work the first time. You really could use a magnifying glass for this process. I managed to seat the home button cable properly the 2nd time, then everything worked.

My Problem

Dead phone, Apple said they couldn't fix it. Water damage to the dock

My Fix

Fantastic... easy to follow instructions, tools worked well and I now have a cool see-through back on the phone!

My Advice

I used a magnifying light to see all the fiddly stuff (like making sure the screws were turning, not cross-threaded, etc.)

My Problem

Fixed bad volume down button and port connector.

My Fix

Very hard install on the volume control. If you are not comfortable with the very small parts do not try.

My Advice

Utilize some type of glue to help stick the tiny parts together besides the adhesive they come with.

My Problem

When my daughter called people they could not hear her but she could here them.

My Fix

The repair went well but the parts I ordered did not solve the problem. The solution was to take the logic board out and take the chip plate off and put a very small square (cut from credit card) over the chip. The phone work perfect after that. It was an IPhone flaw.

My Advice

If you have the same problem with the IPhone ck the the chip before ordering parts. But due the age of the phone it did not hurt to change The particular parts. The docking port and antenna.

My Problem

The phone started acting strange = the battery would charge fully but then wouldn't b charged - my wife's phone - she used one of those "Dock Connector" Lanyards --

My Fix

the step by step instructions we clear and easy to follow - it was a little tricky to get the new dock connector in place and puting the speaker enclosure back was touchy --

My Advice

GO Slowy putting things back -- would have been nice if I had know there was adhesive under protective back on the new part -- I noticed the the clear plastice covering and figured it out - but the instructions didn't mention it

My Problem

My daughter's iPhone 4 stopped charging.

My Fix

The repair was easy following the video from iFixit.com

My Advice

It would help to have a magnifying glass or another phone's camera to zoom in on some of these parts. I have pretty good eyesight but it is difficult to see certain parts like the home button cable and how they connect.
