iPhone X – Display wechseln [Reparaturanleitung]

iPhone X – Display wechseln [Reparaturanleitung]

Hi, I’m Marco from iDoc. If your iPhone fell down and
your screen is cracked, this video shows you how to fix it yourself. The repair is difficult because some parts
are stuck and you have to unscrew a lot of different screws. You should plan about 60 to 90 minutes. We recommend the following tools:
a Y-type screwdriver, a Pentalobe screwdriver a hard plastic pick, ESD tweezers, a steel spatula, a plastic spudger and
a suction cup. You also need a heat gun or a hairdryer to remove glued parts. A link to the spare parts is in the info box below, and our kit includes the most important tools. Our website
shows you this guide with detailed pictures and videos for each step. If you have any questions just use the comment function, and now enjoy this fix. Before you start the repair, lay out all the necessary tools. Make sure you have a clean surface to prevent dirt from entering and scratches on your phone. Before the repair, turn off your iPhone to avoid short circuits. Press and hold the standby button and one of the volume buttons and then confirm to switch off the phone. To remove the display, first remove the two pentalobe screws to the left and right of the Lightning connector. You will need a Pentalobe PL1 screwdriver. The display is strongly glued. So you should heat the glue to get off the display. Use a heat gun or a hairdryer. Heat the edges of the display to about 60°C. Heating softens the glue a bit and lets you remove the display. Now grab your suction cup and stick it to the bottom of the display. Now pull on the suction cup while sticking a flat, strong tool, such as an iFlex or a pick into the gap between
display and frame. Once the display comes off a bit, you can place a pick between the glass and back cover. Only use tools that don’t scratch the iPhone’s frame. Now you can run the pick all around the frame. This loosens the glue gradually. Make sure not to stick the pick too far into the device. You could damage the display cables. If your iPhone’s screen is badly cracked, use some tape. Take a strip of packing tape and stick it right on the cracked screen. The tape allows the suction cup to stick. Once the glue is loosened all around, you can fold open the display. Put a stable object next to the iPhone to support the display. Make sure your iPhone doesn’t slip away. Don’t unfold the display too much or the cables might get strained and suffer damage. First unplug the battery to prevent short circuits. Like the other connectors on the logic board, the battery connector is under a bracket. Remove the bracket’s various Y-type screws; be careful, they’re not the same length. Use a Y-type screwdriver that fits well. These screws have also been wrongly called tri-point or tri-wing screws. Actual tri-point screwdrivers don’t fit right and can strip your screw heads. Now remove the bracket and put all parts in the same box of a magnetic pad. Now carefully pry off the battery connector with a plastic spudger and bend the cable to the side. The display unit is connected with three connectors. Disconnect the three connectors one by one with a spudger. One of the connectors is a bit lower; be extra careful so you don’t damage the logic board. Once all connectors are off, you can remove the display. (There may still be some glue residue on the frame and display.) You normally have to remove and reuse the earpiece and the flex cable from the old display. For this, unscrew the three Y-type screws holding the earpiece. The middle one of the three screws is fastening a little golden holder. Grab this holder with your tweezers so it doesn’t get lost. Now you can easily fold the glued earpiece to the side. The thin, sensitive flex cable connects the earpiece and the sensors. For example the proximity sensor, which switches off your screen, when you hold the phone against your ear. The flex cable is slightly glued. Use a hot air gun or an ordinary
hairdryer to soften the glue. Slide a flat tool, such as a spatula or tweezers under the flex cable very carefully. Then pry the various sensors from their holders. Be very careful, the flex cable breaks easily. Once all parts are off, you can take out the flex cable. Not all available displays are the same. Compare your new display with the old one. You might have to remove some slightly glued parts from the old display, such as the plastic holder for the
front camera or sensors. If there’s a protective film on your spare part, pull it off now. Prepare the earpiece flex cable with the sensors. Put the sensors in their holes on the display. Make sure that the plastic sensor holders are installed in the display. They might come with your new display, or you have to take them out of the old one. Press in the sensors to make them sit. Then fold down the earpiece and place it over the screw holes. Fasten the earpiece screws again. Don’t forget to install that little golden bracket when fastening the middle screw. Make sure the golden bracket is facing the right way. You should put on a new frame sticker to protect your iPhone against dust and spray water. First remove all glue residue so the new glue will hold. But remember, the iPhone will no longer be 100% waterproof. Before attaching the frame sticker, make sure it’s aligned right. The corners and the holes for the camera show you which way is up or down. Now remove the first backing film. First put the frame smoothly on one side of the device and press it on slightly. Now press on the sticker all around. Make sure that the sticker stays inside of the frame all around. Grab a spudger to make the frame sticker hold properly. Now you can remove the second big carrier film. You can remove the last small part of film now, or after connecting and testing the display. Leaving the film on prevents the display from sticking too early. Place the display unit on the edge of the frame and lean it to a stable object, so the sensitive flex cables don’t get strained. Make sure your device doesn’t slip away. Connect the three display connectors. Make sure the connectors are sitting right. Don’t slide them around over their logic board sockets, or the contacts might get damaged. Use your tweezers to position the earpiece connector over its socket. Carefully press the connector onto its socket. Now you can plug in the battery connector. Then attach the bracket plate and fasten it using the Y-type screws. You can now do a quick test to make sure the parts in your new display, such as the earpiece and proximity sensor, are working right. Carefully fold down the display, but don’t press it onto the frame yet. Now press and hold the standby button to start your device. Go to the Control Center to test the brightness of your device. You can check if the touchscreen responds everywhere by taking any app and dragging it along all the edges of the display. You can use the Voice Memos app to test the earpiece. Just make a short recording and play it back. Also look if the screen switches off, when you cover the sensors. If everything works fine, you can go on and close the device. If the touchscreen or the earpiece isn’t working right, it could be because the connectors aren’t sitting right or the flex cables are damaged. Now carefully fold and close the display. Make sure the display is sitting right, before you press it on. Gradually press down the display so it’s sitting on the frame right. Press on the display a while to let the glue bond. Now you can fasten the Pentalobe screws at the lower end of the iPhone. This repair is over now, and I hope you had a great time. Leave any questions, suggestions or hints in the YouTube comments.

  1. ich habe gehöhrt das man nach dem display austausch beim iphone x das gerät mit itunes verbinden muss damit das face id funktoniert

  2. Warum kostet ein neues Display + Austausch bei Apple selber 312€ und bei euch nur das Display 339€?

    Trotzdem richtig gutes Video!

  3. Mir ist das kameraglas gesprungen kann mir jemand etwa sagen was das dann kostet? Fällt das unter sonstigen Schaden und kostet 600€?

  4. Hi ich habe or 2 Jahren angefangen Handys zu reparieren ich habe mir immer eure Videos angeguckt Danke dafür schade das ihr nur 5tausend Abonnenten habt ihr macht das echt gut ich würde euch viel mehr Abonnenten gönnen

  5. Hallo i Doc ich hab bei meinen x ein kleinen glass riss links oben am display ist kein grosser riss mein display funktioniert auch an der stelle also ist es nur der glass gebe es kein günstigeren weg? Lg

  6. Das beste was es an Reperaturanleitungen gibt. Bild, Ton, und die Anleitung sind sehr gut. Danke das ihr euch die Mühe macht und das Ganze kostenlos zur Verfügung stellt.

  7. Ich habe da eine Frage. Verschiedene Händler bieten für die neueren iPhones LCD Lese / Schreib Geräte an weil man bei dem neuen Display die Helligkeit nicht einstellen kann. Braucht man das Teil oder geht es ohne?

  8. Liebes iDoc Team, danke für die Videos. Soviel ich weiss besitzt das iPhone X zwei Feuchtigkeit-Indikatoren, eines am Display beim Sim-Slot und eines im Gehäuserand unterhalb der Lautstärke-Tasten. Gibt es noch andere? Wo sind diese?

  9. Tolles Video! Darf ich euch was fragen? Mir ist mein iPhone X heute morgen heruntergefallen. Nicht sehr tief, und es gibt auch keine optischen Schäden. Keine Risse im Glas o.ä. Seitdem gibt es aber im mittleren bis unteren Bereich des Displays einen horizontalen, vielleicht einen cm hohen Bereich, in dem der Touch nicht mehr richtig funktioniert. Swipen geht dort gar nicht mehr (wenn man in einer Liste scrollt, gibt es an der Stelle einen Aussetzer). Tappen geht schon noch. Allerdings liegt der Tap dann leicht daneben (man trifft also etwas darunter oder darüber). Ist das Display hinüber und ich muss es tauschen, oder deutet die Fehlerbeschreibung eher auf etwas anderes hin? Wie gesagt, es ist nicht gesprungen. Jedenfalls nicht von außen. Meine Hoffnung ist, dass das Display selbst vielleicht noch in Ordnung ist.

  10. tolles Tutorial, auch wenn glaub ich nicht jeder so viel Spaß an der Reparatur hat 😀
    gut zu wissen wäre in euren Tutorials, wie lange man mit dem Heißluftfön das Gerät erwärmen soll bzw in welchem Abstand. Am Anfang ist das nämlich ganz schön schwer einzuschätzen, wann die 60 Grad erreicht oder eventuell sogar überschritten sind.
    Weiter so!

  11. Muss man nicht das Display noch an so ein Gerät hängen, dass beim neuen Display das automatische Dimmen funktioniert. Bzw. Auto-Helligkeit?

  12. Sehr gutes Tutorial leider passt der Preis nicht zum Selbstbau, da das Display zu teuer ist!

    Habe mein Iphone X selbst repariert. OLED Display mit Werkzeug 149€
    + Akku 27€
