You can watch this video here to learn more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EsUXli-MqE This video will show you EVERYTHING you need to know about repairing the screen on your iPhone 5c. REMEMBER: The glass part of the screen is glued to the LCD. You have to replace the screen as a unit. They are not meant to be separated. If you have ANY questions be sure to leave them in the comments below. I respond regularly. You can also reach me on twitter @ZacksJerryRig. If you have insurance on your phone, obviously take advantage of that. But fixing it yourself is always an option. Just be careful as the iPhone is a very fragile piece of equipment.

I left the phone on while replacing screen. Have I ruined the phone?

Worked great. The benefit of having an older iphone is that an Iphone 5C screen replacement with full kit costs 20 bucks.

My phone displays absolutely nothing but the screen itself is not cracked. It is completely unresponsive but I know it works because I plugged it into a monitor and therefore I assume that I see it works. Would replacing the screen solve my problem or is there another problem.

Wow worked great.. except the part that I totally screwed up and broke the LCD, guess I'm just going to get a new phone and go to the Apple repair people next time!

In case anyway wants to know. Yes this is the right piece of equipment. I have had it for about a week now, and it works perfectly fine. The resolution is lower than it used to be, but some people cannot tell. For me this was just perfect; my cellphone is about 3 years old. Right now I'm ok with any functioning phone. I gotta say though, the screw drivers that came with it were not working all that well. I had to borrow a friend's tool kit to finish it.

Not really feasible time... 30 minutes+ if not experienced or got wrong replacement and need to transfer parts. Too fast, not enough detail. And with small screws of different sizes, please show which size goes back where (things get dropped, moved, etc.)
Stabmaster Arson (1 year ago)
Used a 4S for a couple of years no issue. The 5S glass is like candy.....cheap pc of crap. Great job, Apple. Didn't drop the phone either, and have a case. Simply sat on it like I did w/ the 4S. JUNK glass.

My screen stopped working. It started by getting a white line down it. Which then faded into a full white screen. But I tried to force reboot my phone and now the screen does not work. But I plug it in to charge it and it vibrates every 5-10 seconds. What should I do. And how do I know what's broken. Is it the battery or the LCD or charging port. Please help.
The Delco (1 year ago)
make sure everything is plugged in, the reason is maybe one of the Lego cables inside he phone may have not been plugged in or fell out, if thats not working, then the screen you have may be the faultiy

I just dropped my phone and landed on the upper right side of the screen. This video makes me feel better knowing I can get it fixed tomorrow. Thanks!
Mario Gorgees (1 year ago)
For the part at 1:20, all replacement screen parts will require that you remove the home button just so that you can transfer it over to the new part. The LCD Digitizer (back panel) will only need replacement if you damage the black backing on it as that will cause the screen to "touch itself" pressing on things that you did not.
Alicia Rene (1 year ago)

my phone has a display problem. When i turn it on its just lines of colour and sometimes nothing. what should i do?
Jason Liang (1 year ago)
do what he did: replace the screen and LCD completly. The LCD is what you see when you turn on the phone. If it is broken then replace it
Amerria Causey (2 years ago)
Do I need to buy the screen with the camera speaker and home button? When I take off the screen what all will come off
IsabelleCajan (2 years ago)
BTW WHEN YOU DO THIS AT HOME! TAKE THE BATTERY PLUG OUT! IF YOU DONT! YOUR PHONE WILL SHORT OUT! I just went to a profesinal place and I got a Do it yourself kit and the guy there said to take out your battery or else it will short out. Well the plug to the battery

She means make sure you disconnect the battery first. I made the mistake of disconnecting it last when i was when i was changing my ipad screen and the screen was dark when I turned it on... I was luckily able to fix it though

I'm sorry what I'm confuse

David Hawk (2 years ago)
Ok, I ordered the parts and tool kit from Amazon and they said 1 to 5 days shipping. Can't wait ti change my batter and fix my wifes screen display. I'll report back how it went. Since my hands shake due to battlefield injury, I'm considering building a table mount to hold the phone securely, and the screen at a 90 degree angle. If it works outs, I'll post pictures so anyone else can make their own.
o snap ! (2 years ago)
my phone dropped face down the frst time it ever cracked and it was actually really bad. its all over the screen :/ but if we used the suction cup wouldnt it like take apart the glass instead of ctually pulling the top of the phone out?
Shooter Pep (2 years ago)
You don't need the suction cup. That's only if the screen isn't broken. You can use any flat tool to ease the screen up on the bottom n sides
Jasmine leith (2 years ago)
Do we need a new Digitizer as the kit I got only had the screen and not the metal panel... Is there a way to just remove the shattered glass and put the new screen on?

Jasmine leith no as long as the digitizer works take the digitizer off and put it on the new screen

+Coach K to late already broke my phone....switching to iPhone 5s
Coach K (2 years ago)
+Tavoria Harris You can just replace the screen, but the process is A LOT more involved which increases the chances of a botched job. Replacing the whole digitizer assembly is more simple and secure.
8686joedog (2 years ago)
When I watched this video it all seemed pretty simple. There is a huge piece missing from it though. He mentioned you "Might have a few more steps". Those steps involve replacing the camera, earpiece, and other little bits. Watch the other "Nothing left out" video and you will see what I mean. Those steps convinced me on not attempting this myself and just paying the $125 for a pro to do it. Unless you get a screen replacement with those parts, this video will help. Otherwise I suggest watching the other video to see the entire procedure. I guess you can repair anything in 3 minutes if you leave out steps.
Coach K (2 years ago)
+8686joedog I noticed that too. I wouldn't say the video is missing anything though. That's why I bought a digitizer that included the home button, etc. I replaced my daughter's broken screen in about 5min ... just like the video showed. Saving about $10 on a digitizer without the home button didn't seem worth the extra hassle of removing and reconnecting several more small pieces of electronics.

did you use the same screwdriver for the 4 screws on the metal plate inside?
Helen Tozer (1 year ago)
+AllsketchScout Same, I've just managed to get two out, I swear the bottom left and bottom right screws are smaller. Annoyed as I bought an inclusive kit which was meant to have all the right tools. Why it it just fitting two of the screws?
JerryRigEverything (2 years ago)
Make sure the Philips head screwdriver fits the heads of the 4 Philips head screws.
AllsketchScout (2 years ago)
+JerryRigEverything I just don't understand if I'm doing something wrong taking those screws out
AllsketchScout (2 years ago)
+JerryRigEverything that's weird I was sitting there for minutes and it would only get one out

Yes. The driver is the same for all 4 of those screws.
Curlyheaded.Jaaay (2 years ago)
Okay.. My dad stepped on my phone. and it isn't cracked bad it just show the black screen I could still hear it vibrate , and i messed around and pushed down on something and music started playing until my phone died. So it still works .. i just want to no would this help out instead of buying a new screen.?
Curlyheaded.Jaaay (2 years ago)
+JerryRigEverything Okay thank you again
JerryRigEverything (2 years ago)
It should, a new screen includes a new LCD and new Glass.  Check the video description for parts.
Curlyheaded.Jaaay (2 years ago)
+JerryRigEverything Oh okay thank you. and on the screen were the front camera is the speaker is like cracked . So getting a new screen would fix the problem?.
JerryRigEverything (2 years ago)
+Jordan Frederick It sounds like the LCD is broken. So replacing the screen should fix your issue. But its hard to say for sure without looking at the phone.
Erin Mullahey (2 years ago)
so i dropped my phone on the sidewalk and it's very cracked. the bottom left (sort of to the left of the home button) is a different color. The screen (my cracked one) is not responding to my touch and when it does, it is very glitchy. If i replace the screen, will this go away?? please respond i need to know asap

+Lexy Spears Hard to know whether it is a battery issue, screen issue, or connector issue. Techs at an apple store or at your cell vendor should be able to tell you.
John Di Biagio (2 years ago)
ok, so I just checked my screen on my 5c cell phone, and there is a place down the Palmer Park Mall called Fix My Cell which charges $150.00 and takes about 20 minutes, anyone have another idea, maybe cheaper, please let me know! Thanks, John D.
Coach K (2 years ago)
+John Di Biagio Buy the 5c digitizer that includes the home button and replacement tools for about $60 on ebay (new). Choose a vendor with a high rating ... 99% or higher. It should only take you about 5min to replace the digitizer just like the video shows.

Does that have the lcd with it???
Coach K (2 years ago)
+Josie Hollo Yes, screen + digitizer + preconnected home button... can be found for ~ $60 new on ebay.

Just so you know, getting the glue off the "eggshell" screen will take you a whole week. It's the stickiest thing on the planet, and it just wont come off. Alcohol doesn't help unless theres only a tiny bit of glue left. But of course there A LOT, not a little. You've been warned.

Seth Overbeek (2 years ago)
The iphone 5c I am trying to fix got dropped and the screen broke. The screen glitched out for a sec then nothing. I am getting nothing out of the phone to show it is still alive. Do You think the phone is dead or the screen is causing an error and will not let it boot. How can i test this. Will the phone boot with no lcd? With no lcd can i hook to pc and pull files. or does it know there is no lcd and will not boot??
