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.

My Problem

iPhone 4 battery would not charge. After replacing the battery the phone worked but still would not charge. So I took the risk of replacing the dock connector before buying a new phone.

My Fix

I carefully followed the instructions, which took about a hour. The magnetic mat was invaluable in keeping the different sized screws organized. In the end it all went back together and the phone works like new! Saved a few hundred $$ :)

My Advice

Not a piece of cake - just go slowly and be careful.

My Problem

My phone stop charging when I plug it. The first message I got was "This accessory may not be supported" This means that the USB cable is not recognized by the phone because either the USB is not working or the dock connector is not working. I changed the battery first but this didn't solve the problem. Then I decided to change the dock connector. I bought a cheap one from the ebay. It solved the charging problem but the microphone stop working and people can't hear me when I make a call unless I used the speaker. Then I re-installed the original parts to know what is the problem, and I figured out that the part that I bought wasn't good. My friend Mitch told me that ifixit have a good part so I order the dock connector from them, I got the package on time and I installed my new part and it works very good and it was easy to fit it in its place. The one that I bought it from the ebay has larger dimensions than it should be and in order to install it you have to use force which is not recommended.

I would like here to correct some information posted on the internet regarding the microphone in the iPhone 4 (may be this works with other versions), iPhone 4 has two microphones, one is near the dock connector (works if you don't use loudspeaker) and another beside the headphone port at the top (works if you talk with speaker). If you have a problem with the microphone (first mentioned), the dock connector should be changed because it is a part from the dock connector.

My Fix

With the guides from ifixit.com, everything is easy to fix.

My Advice

-iPhone is expensive and sensitive device, never buy cheap parts that you don't trust. The problem in buying these cheap parts is the risk of damaging your phone especially the logic board. Also, good repairing parts make it easy to figure out the problem, for example, when I installed the bad part, I thought that I damaged some other parts by mistake so number or possible causes increases which make it hard to make troubleshooting and you may buy additional (new) parts that you don't need.

- never repair or remove the cover for the phone while it is ON.

- It is very helpful to make labels for the small screws so that you know where you should put everyone in its place. They are very small and different sizes, if you insert any of them in the wrong place, you might damage the threads on the screw itself or the on the hole.

- Be patient and never used force more than required.
