Hi I’m Marco from iDoc. If your iPhone fell down and your display is cracked, this video shows you how to easily fix it yourself. This fix is hard, because some parts are glued and you have to take out many different screws. You should plan about 60 to 90 minutes. We recommend the following tools: A Y-Type, a Pentalope and a Phillips screwdriver. ESD tweezers, a steel spatula, a plastic spudger and a suction cup. You also need a heat gun or a hair dryer to remove strongly glued parts. You can find the required spare part in the video info. The most important tools come with our iDoc repair set. On our website iDoc.eu you can find this guide with detailed photos and videos for each step. If you have any questions, just comment. Now enjoy this fix. Before you start, you should have all tools ready. Also work on a clean surface to prevent dirt from entering and scratching the iPhone. Before any repairs, you should turn off your iPhone to avoid short circuits. Now you can remove the Pentalope screws. The display is strongly glued. To soften the display glue, use a heat gun or hairdryer. The glue is around the edges of the display. Heating lets you remove the display more easily. Now take the suction cup and stick it on the display above the Home button. Now pull on the suction cup while pressing into the gap between the display and the frame. Once you’ve stuck the pick between the glass and the back cover edge, you can run the pick all around the frame. This slowly unglues the display. Make sure not to stick the pick too far into the device when removing the display. Be very careful not to damage the display connection cables. If the display of your iPhone is cracked badly, you should tape it. To do this, peel off a strip of tape and paste it directly onto the splintered display. This gives the suction cup better hold. Once the glue is removed all around, you can open the display. Do not unfold the display more than 180 degrees, otherwise the cables could be overstrained. You can also lean the display against an object. Make sure that your iPhone does not slip away. Now loosen the 4 Phillips screws of the bracket plate. Always pay attention to the size and type of the screws. Alway make sure not to mix up the screws. Using the wrong screws can damage your phone. We recommend using our iDoc magnetic mat to store the screws. Under the metal cover is the battery connector. You should always disconnect this first. To disconnect the connector, we recommend a plastic spudger. A plastic tool avoids short circuits. When the battery is still connected, the device has power. Wrongly connected display connectors may cause a short circuit. This can also damage your backlight. So always disconnect your battery to be safe. Now you can disconnect the cables of the display and the Home button. Pull off the connectors as evenly as possible. Be careful not to bend the connectors and damage other parts of the logic board. Now remove the second bracket plate. It is secured with three screws. Under the bracket plate are the connectors for the front camera and for the earpiece. Remove these with a plastic spudger. When all connections are released, you can remove the display. To remove the earpiece, now loosen the three Phillips screws. Be careful not to mix up the screws. The long screw could drill into the paint layer of the new display. This would show as a bright spot in the display. Now you can remove the bracket plate. The earpiece itself is attached with two more screws. Lift the camera from its recess to remove the earpiece. Since the facetime cable is lightly glued, heat it first. Use the lab spatula for the cable. Loosen the cable little by little. Take your time. Be really careful not to damage the cable. Once the cable is loose, you can lever the sensors of their recesses. Open the four Y-type screws to remove the Home button bracket plate. Use a spudger from the side of the metal plate to lever out the Home button connector. Before you remove the Home button cable, we recommend you heat the cable again, just like the facetime cable. Now slide the spatula between the cable and the display to gradually loosen the glue. Be extra careful here. Otherwise you could damage the Home button. This would affect not just the Home button, but also the touch ID function. Once the Home button cable is loose, you can take out the Home button from the front. To remove the display rear panel, open the six Y-type screws. Now heat the lower edge of the metal plate using a heat gun. Flex cables run along on the inside of the metal plate. They are glued to the metal plate. Run a steel spatula between the metal plate and the display, for example. You should not use a sharp or pointed tool, otherwise you could damage the underlying cables. Once the plate is unglued, you can remove it. Now take your new display. Check if you need to reuse any small parts. Check if parts such as the transparent plastic frame for the proximity sensor and the plastic bracket for the front camera are in the new display. Also remove the protective films and all seals so you can stick the back plate on the display. Now position the metal plate and fasten it using the Y-type screws. Now take the Home button cable and lead it into the recess from the front. Now lift the Home button connector and place the Home button cable underneath the connector. The plastic tab helps you position the cable. Now you can connect the cable to the connector. Now position the metal cover and fasten it using the Y-type screws. Now you can reinstall the facetime cable. Start with the sensors. Put the sensors in their intended positions. Now just use the plastic tabs to position the rest of the facetime cable. Lightly press down the cable so the glue can bond. Now lift the camera cable and put the earpiece back into its recess. Now fasten the earpiece using the two Phillips screws. You can now put the camera back into its recess and fasten the bracket plate using three Phillips screws. We recommend using a new display sticker to restore the iPhone’s protection against dust and spray water. First remove all old glue residue, so the new glue will stick properly. Note, however, that the iPhone is not 100 percent water-protected. Make sure the frame sticker is aligned correctly before sticking it on. Look at the corners to see which edge faces up or down. Position the film flush on the device and lightly press it. Press down the glue all around. Now you can also remove the second protective film layer. Check again if the frame sticker is positioned correctly and press down again if necessary. Now lift the tab and slowly pull of the last part of the protective film. Before you connect the new display, make sure that the battery is still disconnected. To connect the facetime cable connector, place the display vertically and slowly lower the cable. Now you can plug in the connector. This will need some precision, because the cable is slightly twisted. Attach and fasten the bracket plate. Now connect the cables for the display and Home button. Try to position the cables correctly and not to slip over the connector. The connectors should snap into place with a slight click. The cables should not be overstrained. Now you can reconnect the battery. Slightly lean the display against an object. Now you can fasten the bracket plate. Use the four Phillips screws to fasten the bracket plate. Now slowly fold the display to close it. Make sure the display is positioned correctly before you press it down and fix it. Press down the display gradually to make it sit flush on the frame. Now you can fasten the Pentalope screws. You should test your display in the end. First check the brightness and then the touch screen. Pick any app on the screen and slowly drag it across the display in a zig-zag pattern and along the display edges. This lets you check if the touch screen responds at all points. Your display is fixed now. I hope you had lots of fun. You are welcome to write any questions, suggestions and hints in the comment section. We are always happy to help you out.
