I fucked up my screen following this guys step. He hasn't mentioned about the damage of using wrong screws in the wrong hole. I fucked up my Logic board by accidentally using the 1.7 mm screws in the bottom right hole. Now my phone won't boot up. Motherfucker!!!
thanks. my iphone works! it was restarting all the time after some guy replaced the battery in a street market. the issue started maybe in 2 months after that replacement. I replaced again and the phone works for 30 minutes already. super! many thanks!
I followed all directions for this and the “charging port” replacement tutorials. But my phone won’t turn on, and even when charging it isnt responding. I dont know if it’s actually charging or not. I’ve opened the phone up several times and reconnected each connector but it still doesnt work. Any ideas what could have gone wrong?
Important!! There's a black strip running across the bottom of the battery that's connected to the glue strips. It's not the tape that wraps around the bottom of the battery; it's just below that. First, heat up the back of the phone under the battery with a hair dryer to soften the glue a bit. (If you forget to do this, the strip is likely to break when you pull on it.) Then pull the strip out slightly and snip it in half with scissors. This allows you to pull each glue strip separately. Gently, firmly, and evenly, steadily pull each strip out; there will be a squeaking noise as the glue strip stretches. Careful! If it breaks you're going to have to pry the battery out. The stretched strip gets about a foot long if you let it, but I like to grab it close to the battery so it's less likely to break prematurely. After both strips are removed, the glue is gone and the battery will lift out easily.
This is a misleading guide. You did not stress a VERY IMPORTANT issue. When you remove the 4 screws that hold the plate over the 3 screen connectors, BE CAREFUL TO PUT THE SCREWS BACK IN THE SAME HOLES THEY WERE REMOVED FROM. These screws, while tiny, are NOT ALL THE SAME LENGTH. Putting the wrong screw in a hole can damage the underlying motherboard. In my case, the in-screen speaker no longer worked. Getting it fixed was $140. I was told by the repair technician that the motherboard can be ruined by improper screw installation. It turned an otherwise straightforward battery replacement into an unnecessarily stressful and expensive pain in the rear. From other comments (which I wish I had paid more attention to), I can see I am not the only one that had this problem. Please add the necessary caution in your instructions.
I didn't have a heat gun/blow dryer at my house, but I did sit the phone on a heater vent for a minute or two before I started prying. Then I read in the instructions to just pull on the adhesive strips from the other end of the battery instead of prying. Oh well.
1. I found my iPhone 5s had the battery held in with the same type of adhesive strips used on the iPhone 5 SE, where you pull adhesive strips out from under the end of the battery to release it. I recommend watching the iPhone SE video to see which kind of adhesive holds your battery.
2. You have to disconnect the little home button cable, but the job is much easier if you leave the display connected. And it's more reliable since you don't disturb the screen cables. Just place something behind the screen to hold it up and perpendicular to the case and put a string around the screen and the support. I used a block of wood to hold up the screen while I worked. You could also use a small metal bookend as your support. If you do disconnect the screen cables, I recommend re-connecting them -before- you plug in the new battery connector.
Just replaced the iPhone 5c battery while watching your video. All is well except the speaker volume control buttons not working now. Checked the speaker connection to make sure it is secured and still no volume control. any suggestions/ideas will b appreciated. thanks for the video
Tilt not working? Can no longer rotate the screen? Compass messed up?
The solution I used:
When you remove the four screws holding the cables, make sure you keep track of which one goes where. Three of them are magnetic. If you put them in the wrong holes your iPhone tilt will no longer work. If you made this mistake, simply re-open your iPhone and put the non-magnetic screw in the right hole.
I made the whole operation carefully and thorughly. The iPhone 5s didn't start. I checked every step again and this time the phone lit up but only with a checked apple symbol.
After a while it disappeared and now I only see a empty battery symbol. I've charge the phone for hours but it doesn't come any further. I've tried to connect it to a PC with iTunes but it isn't recognized by the pc. What can I do at this stage?
Great video, very helpful. I had the same experience with my battery not wanting to come off the backing paper, but the tool kit I bought along with my battery (from Amazon) came with two guitar-pick-shaped tools, and I used one of those to pry the battery up little by little, around the edges. Going at it gently and patiently makes a difference, folks. I hope to get a couple more years out of my phone, now!
Wooo. On my Samsung I detach the front and the back with NO tools. Then pull the battery out (click) and pop the new one in- click the backing case back on - all done. And powered back up. All before the kettle has boiled.
Just finished this repair, phone turned on, and I thought that all was OK. But then I found that the touchscreen is not working. So I must not have connected one (at least) of the cables correctly. Is this the Digitizer cable? All three of those were real PITAs to reconnect, but I thought I felt them click into position.
Okay, so I was taking the screen off and undid the connectors like you showed. A part that is a square with what looks like a lens. Which of the 4 connectors does it go to.
Love the instruction by the way.
My phone shows black screen after changed the battery, it has sound and i even hear whatsapp notification but black screen. I dismantled the 3 connection for speaker, lcd and digitizer and connect them back twice but still black screen. Pls advise which part has gone wrong?
You sir, are a legend. Clear to follow instructions, plus you included the home button cable which seems to be missing on other iPhone 5s videos. I accidentally knocked my beast into some water for a few seconds. Phone detected the water and went into shut down (As opposed to electrical failure.) and I madly went searching for my phone tools. Got the screen off and battery disconnected, and let it air out in the really hot dry air here at the moment, with a fan blowing on it. 12 hours later, followed the second half of the video, and phone is back together and appears to be working properly.
Just changed my battery and although it did not go as smoothly as depicted, I realize he has much more experience. I too had the biggest problem removing the battery. There is a similar video on ifixit that describes removing the adhesive sort of like a Command adhesive strip. I guess I pulled too hard and it broke so I did have to pry the thing out. It has been suggested to warm the battery with a hair dryer to soften the adhesive but I did not try that. Hopefully this will be the last battery I put in. I used a piece of packing tape sticky side up to place the screws upon removal so I would know where they went back. Overall the video was very helpful.
Hi I attempted to change the battery in my iphone 5s today. All went well although there was no ribbon cable from the push button. When I got to the batery replacement I discovered that the connector on the phone and present battery has 4 contacts but on the new battery which is labelled for 5c or 5s there are only three contacts. Can you advise. Thanks
The video is both valuable and wreckless.....All of the information is sound except for the prying the battery out of the phone! This should never be attempted under any circumstance as the glue strips were not designed to release the battery by simple heating and prying. They are to be pulled out by two tabs that are located at the bottom end of the battery just above the touch sensor ribbon that you remove. By pulling the tabs carefully, the adhesive properties are released and the battery will come out without any prying. If you've seen the 3M damage-free adhesive strips, you will know what I mean. It should look like continuous piece of white taffy as you pull each of the two strips out from under the battery. DO NOT PRY A LITHIUM BATTERY....unless you like sparklers (of course).
Thanks for this. The battery is hard to get out, but using a hairdryer as advised it came out. The two sticky strips that came with my replacement kit were a bugger to put in. I'd advise leaving the old ones in. The connectors are fiddly, but firm gentle pressure does the trick. The home button cable I found easy to do, using tweezers first to click the connector together, then locate as advised here. Lastly I'd advise switching the phone on before you put the screen back. That way if you've not located a connector correctly, it's easier to go in and fix it.
Like any device of this nature it's not an easy job, unless your used to fixing things and have good hand eye co-ordination. You have to use your own judgement, get it fixed by a competent tech if unsure. Also Li-ion batteries can be dangerous; dispose of properly, DO NOT put in bin or general garbage or waste.
The 3 pin connector sits un level in the socket when i try put it back in :/ is it
supposed to be like that.
The casing wont close all the way so I turned it on and like i thought touch screen wasnt working so it was going to be one of those cables up the top so i tried to open it back up again to try see what was blocking it and the screen wont come off now.... literally the glass part is cracking at the edges before its coming out properly.
Great video--got the replacement battery installed and everything back together again. However, when I tested my iPhone found that the volume controls, the ring/silent switch and the sleep/wake button no longer function. I disassembled the iPhone again and checked all the connections; couldn't see anything wrong. Obviously, I must have messed up something, somewhere. Any insights or suggestions?
I have a iphone 5s. It fell off my bed by me. After that day it starts up only when I plug it in with charger. As soon as I remove the charger the phone goes off. And when it turns on sticks on the itunes symbol. I’ve tried connecting it to itunes but it doesn’t connect with my pc.
Outstanding video........well done and good explanations!.....for you guy whining about the presentation.............hey, give it a shot, boys..........lets see YOUR video.........how big an ole boy are ya?
Very helpful, thanks! I had problem taking the battery off the phone. The adhesive was really strong that I almost gave up because I bent the battery and a spark came out. Taking the battery out took me about 15 minutes. After that everything works great!
Thanks very much very helpful. I ordered a battery but the APN number on the back was different, i was sold iPhone 5S battery with the APN number 616-0718, it also looks smaller than the one i have replaced, that was 616-0722. Is it the wrong battery or something different?
Thanks a lot, everything worked fine except the loosing up of the battery. It was very strong glued to the phone, so I deformed it pretty much when I extract it. I heated the back of the phone with a hair dryer, I don't know if it helped to much. So if your battery goes easily off, I suppose you dont need to take the screen off, but if you struggle with it, it is safer to take the screen off and not risk to rip of the connectors. One of the 4 screws from the screen connector plate is longer than the others!!!
Thank you very much, JerryRigEverything! Thanks a lot for the best support given by this video for my iPhone 5s which just has got its new replacement battery without any problem. As unexperienced person, it was cautiously done and finished within 20 mins. Of course, it was a delicate work. And I saved a considerable amount of money.
Anybody having problems with removing your battery, those little glue strips that this phones battery didn’t seem to be glued to, are in fact much sticker than this guys, on the bottom of the battery the two little paper tabs should pull up from the battery, then if you carefully pull them away from the phone the glue strips stretch out from underneath the battery, then it should just fall out, much easier than forcing it out and safer aswell
Great video. If you don't need the phone, give it a try. If you need it and can't afford a new one, pay the bux and let apple do it. It's a tricky obstacle course and when you miss just one, you are done. Thanks again.
Thank you, I just replaced my wife 5s Iphone Battery! while watching your video, I skip the step of taking the screen off, It took me a little longer but I got it done. I would recommend to take the screen off and try not to save a few steps. Taking the battery out was kind of challenging but I got it replaced. The battery screws were the hardest to put back in, they are so small. I lost one screw someplace so I taped it temporally until I get another one. I Recommend using scotch Tape to put your screws and clips on your table so they don't go missing. Thanks again, this was my first Iphone batter that I have ever replace, much easier than I thought it would be.. Thanks again!
Please NOTE: When removing the 4 screws that hold the screen cable cover nite that there are 2 screws that are a little longer and one of them is Non-magnetic. Note where those 2 screws go. The non-magnetic one I believe goes in the outer hole near the edge of the phone.
It is not absolutely necessary to remove the screen. Once you get it open, find a small box (about 3x3x5 inches) and put a rubber band around the box and the screen. That holds the screen vertical and out of the way.
