My Problem

Broken power button. Having to wait for timeout for screen to lock is annoying.

My Fix

No problems. I needed extra screws from when I replaced the battery but it went without error this time.

My Advice

Don't drop your screws, it will save you a few dollars.

My Problem

I fix the ipad screen is was broken

On the iPhone 5 the cases was damaged

My Fix

I checked on your website how to fix on the website is help me thank you

My Advice

I don't understand the question

My Problem

Power button did not work

My Fix

Great

My Advice

Be very careful unplugging the battery cable you can easily knock off capacitor for charge indication

My Problem

Battery died around 15% -30% also at the % range or life range would be incorrect.

The power button started to fail then finally quit working and with those two issues it made it difficult to use my phone.

My phone would shut off randomly and I had to turn it back on with the charging cord. Drove me bonkers!!!!

My Fix

This repair took me almost 2 1/2 hours. This was the first time I had worked on a phone. I lost one screw and broke one of the interconnect cables. I still put my phone back together less one screw covering the battery connect plate and still attached the cable with a piece of tape to hold it in place. To my surprise it worked and I plan to order the other parts to finish the repair. I saved my phone and Im not stuck in a contract with a provider for a new phone. Ha!!

My Advice

I recommend buying the screw set incase you drop one. Many different sizes and shapes that will not interchange.

Another thing to have is a magnifying glass. I wear glasses and I still needed this to see some of the connections.

My Problem

Me and the wife were getting ready to watch a DVD when the machine thought it was time to die. This is an original PS3 so I wasn't ready for it to go.

My Fix

I followed this sites YLOD guide and it went extremly smooth and easy. It took me around 2-3 hours total but that is because I was inspecting everything while cleaning the dust off of an eight year collection. When it can time to fix the motherboard, that was the only time I was nervous. I did take another fixit users suggestion of using the oven first (heat the oven to 250 degrees celsius, shutting off the oven and putting the motherboard inside for 7 minutes). Most people suggested using a heat gun on a setting of 250 degrees celsius. I did have access to a heat gun with two settings. The coldest being over 500 degrees celcius. So I heated the CPU and GPU for 7 seconds or so shorter then suggested. Put it all back together and wasn't expecting it to work, but it started up fine and is working. Oh, I also switched out the power supply with the cooler running model.

My Advice

Just take your time, separate the screws into muffin tins and follow this guide and everything should work fine. Only time will tell how long this fix will last though. But getting anything extra out of it now is a bonus to me.

My Problem

My iPhone 5 power button only worked sometimes. For a few dollars I replaced the power cable and battery and should be good for another 2 years. The new iPhone 6 is just not in the budget right now.

My Fix

The guides were great. Couldn't do the job without them. The pictures could be a little clearer with more detail. The Audio/Power Button replacement cable take a long time to replace. Over 2 hours for me and that's probably only because I was being extra cautious. I ordered 2 cables so I can replace my sons iPhone where the volume button isn't working.

My Advice

The tweezers are a must. Be careful picking up the screws they sometimes want to pop out and fly across the kitchen.Took 15 minutes to locate a lost screw. The iScrews iPhone tray is also a must but seemed to lack all the screw locations when dismantling 95% of the phone. Next job I may consider buying a pack of extra screws.

My Problem

Could not lower volume on iPhone with the button.

My Fix

It was somewhat time consuming cause you have to be careful disconnecting the cables, but it went good. All works now.

My Advice

Follow the instructions carefully as per ifixit site and definately use the tools that you can buy at the site. Will come in handy for future repairs.

My Problem

Power button not working.

My Fix

It went well, got my power button back

My Advice

The guide was very good and detailed. I have no issues.

My Problem

The family has six iPhone 5's and each one had at least one problem that needed repair. I could have gone to the Apple store and waited weeks, or one of those mall kiosks and paid someone to do the repairs. But I can't wait that long and don't want to pay someone else for something I can do myself, and probably better.

My Fix

I had to replace three batteries which had puffed and popped out the phone's screen and three others because they wouldn't last the day, as well as three power and audio control button cables because the power button stopped working, and a cracked screen. It took a few hours to do all the repairs, but every one was a success and all of the phones are as good as new.

My Advice

I worked at the kitchen table, a nice big area with good lighting, and placed a clean white t-shirt down as my work surface. The t-shirt kept screws from rolling around provided some cushioning to the work surface. It even made it easy to find a wayward screw when the screw driver slipped from my hand and sent one flying. I also used a magnifying visor to make life easier on the eyes. Like I said, it killed a few hours to do all the repairs but the money saved was well worth it.

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.
