Cevap: Where can I buy a display/battery connector bracket from?iFixit doesn’t appear to have it in their store. You can usually find these parts in China-based online shops. Check out this listing on UnionRepair or search on AliExpress (or eBay).
Cevap: iPhone Freezing 4 to 5 times per dayWith a water damaged phone, all bets are off. Was this phone properly decontaminated by you or a previous tech? Even then, water damaged phones tend to have all kinds of latent issues that come back and bite you. When you say “freezing”, do you mean the Touch or is the phone locking up? At any rate, this phone would have to be diagnosed at the board level and frankly, it may not be worth repairing.
Cevap: iPad Air 2 serious touch screen and battery problemsThe Touch IC's on the Air 2 are underneath a small shield near the battery connector. You can't see them or probe them without unsoldering the shield. I agree with Brian and @sammyz that the "charging issue" is most likely a bad battery. These batteries were not meant to sit around depleted for several years. I also agree that shops that don't put back shields and screws are usually suspect as that is indicative of cutting corners. They probably damaged the screen during removal and now the Touch is gone.
Cevap: HELP PLEASE iPhone wont turn on!Has anything happened to the phone recently, such as a drop, repair or contact with water? It sounds like there was some internal damage to the phone, probably due to the charging. It could be a spontaneous failure or it could be related to a poor quality charging brick and cable. It’s best to only use Apple or MFi certified chargers. If you are using a quality charger and nothing else has happened to the phone, then it may just be a spontaneous failure of some modular or board-level component. Ideally you will need some quality or known-good replacement parts to do some proper troubleshooting. If you don’t want to but parts up front, consider having this looked at by an independent repair shop.
Cevap: iPad Air 2 boot loops charging battery from 0% + LCD & adhesive issueDon’t trust what the battery data says. It’s easy to program the battery to say whatever you want, like 0 cycles/100%. A cheap supplier will take crap cells, with a used battery gauge board and program it to look brand new. However, even a good/great supplier will have duds. And it’s generally not true that suppliers test every part. With batteries, it’s unfeasible because it takes 5-8 hours to properly test one battery. A select few vendors are investing in a big way to test their batteries but it requires a substantial financial investment. So if you bought the battery with iFixit, give Support a call. If you bought it elsewhere, see what they are willing to do.
Cevap: What are the Steps to Replace a Cracked Screen on an iPhone?Hi Roland. Thanks for contributing your thoughts on troubleshooting an iPhone screen issue. However, IMHO this doesn't really belong on the Answers Forum. You should write up your process in a "Technique" Guide (https://www.ifixit.com/Contribute) and then head over to Meta (meta.ifixit.com) to ask the regular contributors and TPTB to comment or critique. I understand it's upsetting to get called out out but don't hold a grudge against @arbaman :>), he is one of our regular contributors here and he consistently volunteers multiple hours of his week in order to help out DIY fixers. For all of us that do this regularly, we see countless SPAM attacks, flagrant self-promoters and whatnot and it can get a bit tiring at times. Sometimes it's hard to differentiate those who are drive-by self promoters and those who genuinely want to help. Teaching is a great way to learn so hopefully you will continue to contribute, either via guides or by providing answers. I'll keep this question aside for a few days to give you a ...
Cevap: iPhone 6s Black screenIt’s very important to always disconnect the battery before disconnecting/reconnecting the screen assembly. The issue is that the LCD connector has pins that have high voltages (i.e. the backlight is ~20V) and ground in very close proximity. When you fumble around trying to line up the connector plug to the receptacle, you can short out the voltage rail and cause damage to the components in the backlight circuit. If you’re lucky, then only a backlight filter is damaged but other times, the entire circuit could be affected. Either way, this type of repair requires micro-soldering and isn’t really a DIY repair. To test for this, plug your device into a charger or an iTunes enabled computer. Then shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you can see a dim image, then the backlight circuit has been damaged. If you can’t see an image at all, then it may be the LCD circuit that is damaged. You can connect the original, cracked screen to confirm this. If the original screen has the backlight on, then the replaceme...
Cevap: Ipad Air stuck in DFU mode - Wont chargeI suspect you have a logic board issue. Was the tablet dropped or repaired or came into contact with water in the days/weeks leading up to this issue? If one of the subsystems (NAND, Charging, Cameras, etc) is damaged or defective, then that will impede the boot cycle. Being stuck in DFU points to a more “critical” subsystem being affected. The only way to properly troubleshoot this is to open it up. I would check the charging system (battery, dock, charge circuit) and then start probing the power management system for clues. A micro-solderer can perform this type of troubleshooting.
Cevap: Strange Battery Issue CapacityDepending on where you source your batteries, it could very well be poor quality batteries. However, a defective charge circuit could also damage the batteries although I’m a bit skeptical that it could cause as much degradation as your seeing. If this is happening on your own device, it will be hard to troubleshoot because Ideally you need to have either a known-good battery or known-good device to properly troubleshoot this issue. An independent repair shop may be able to help you.
Cevap: Volume switch does not workYou’ll need to verify that the Volume Button flex is properly connected and secured and that the flex is not damaged in any way. Check out this guide, specifically Steps 36-40. The application of the double sided adhesive may be exacerbating a flex issue.
