Have just watched your tutorial on how to change the battery on an iPhone 5s, followed all instructions impeccably. When I turned the iPhone back on the message displayed is 'unable to activate touch ID on this phone'.
Bloody marvellous, thanks. A tip I learnt on another job is to use an egg box with each pod numbered and put your screws and brackets from each stage of the job into the numbered pods, so you dont get everything in a pickle. Thanks again.
Yes. My phone had similar issue of powering off very frequently. Replacing the battery fixed my problem and it very well may fix your problem. I've since replaced 2 or 3 batteries and screens. It's not terribly difficult (one of the biggest challenges is remembering which screw goes where).
Very helpful and well made video. I had to heat the back of my iphone to soften the glue of the battery which deformed a little but didn't break (I gradually eased the tool underneath and when it seemed rigid I used the hair dryer again to reheat the back of the phone). I did lose a screw, but that was my fault!
thank you very much for the tutorial I may have to just ask your help I really appreciate you and other people Who do this for us approximately six years or so ago I had to go to the Apple Store which I hate to do and a woman had a phone it wasn’t even a-year-old and they charged her $69 to put in the new battery and when I found out how much they cost I thought what bullshit so that’s why I am doing it myself for $9.99 didn’t even have to go to storeGot it for eBay and saving lots of money🙏🏻
When removing the battery, part of the black line that runs from the volume buttons to the other side of the phone was damaged. It is located directly under the battery where you begin to pry it off. Have I damaged the connection? Please help.
I just followed your videos but something gone wrong and fingerprint sensor is not working properly any more. It doesn't want to complete scanning and then it fails. Doesn't matter which finger i am using. I tried to reconnect fingerprint reader but no changes. Help!!!!
This was perfect! We followed step by step and got my new battery in there. It helps when there are 2 people. Have 2 -3 small dipping containers to put the screws in. This video was nice, clear and concise.
Great video - but OMG, what a headache of a job..... if anyone ever tells me its easy... I think i'll punch them in the face.. Booked an eye appointment as clearly my glasses are no longer up to the job... lol
Help!!! I replaced the battery and it turned on so I was really excited! But an error came up saying it could not enable touch ID, so i reopened it and made sure the home button ribbon was correctly locked in. But now it is not turning on at all!!! What did I do to break the screen?!
Used this technique just now.
Cannot leave the screen attached as another video suggested because the battery is stuck so well down it has to be levered from the top, not the side - that just bent the battery = risk of immediate fire!
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?
