    Just finished replacing my mum's screen! Took me 2 hours and 15 minutes. I actually found it best to use a mix of written online step-by-step instructions and this video for any steps I was confused about.
    Just a few little tips for anyone looking to do this:
    • You can get a good screen replacement kit for about $20-30 on Amazon. It should include 2 screwdrivers, a suction tool, and all other small tools you may need to pry apart small components.
    • You should also definitely invest about another $10 into a *magnetic* screw organiser mat. This is extremely crucial as the phone has very tiny parts that must be kept placed correctly. I used the iScrew organiser ($7.99 on Amazon).
    • Take your time & work on a well-lit, hard/flat-surfaced area to make sure no parts roll away.
    Good luck!

    This is a nearly perfect guide. It is clear, concise, and the voice instructions match the images well.
    Disconnecting the battery may be well worth two minutes to potentially prevent a short, which may destroy the phone. The battery connector is under a two screw panel on the right about halfway down. The slightly raised side of the panel goes on the left with its longer screw. Also, consider getting a static wrist band for $5.
    KEEP YOUR SCREWS VERY WELL ORGANIZED. Use a large, well-lit work surface, and sort them with an ice cube tray. Almost every singe one is different; any in the wrong hole can destroy the phone.
    Some parts you should use tweezers or a tiny flat spatula to remove or position, but some I found easier to just use my finger, working carefully by feel. As the video says, be particularly careful with the home button and its connector. Examine the one you're taking out closely before and as you remove it, so you know where each bit goes. It's straight-forward, but the parts are tiny, so be patient.
    My own replacement screen had a few stuck-on strips of plastic that needed removing. It also came with the little plastic holders at the top whereas the example in this video did not.
    Be prepared to spend 1-2 hours in total if you're not electronically experienced, which I certainly was not last week. Having done it, I don't think it's nearly as difficult as I imagined it would be at first.

    • Narciso Sanchez
      Narciso Sanchez 2 years ago

      Yes! Remove that battery. Im an amateur at replacing phone screens even while having the proper tools but can you answer these two questions for me. I have a static wrist band but whats it used for? Also, when connecting the LCD and Digitizer, do you connect those first and then the battery? Or battery then the LCD Digitizer.

  • fitzm
    fitzm 3 years ago

    Nice walk-through. A couple of things I would add is to point out that when snapping ribbons back down on the board (towards the end of install) that they do require a decent amount of pressure and make a definitive snapping sound. The second tip I would give is to keep the screws holding the two small metal "cover" plates on each far end of the large metal plate loose so the holes of the six side screws (three on each side) of the large metal plate line up correctly. Also, the glued ribbon parts are pretty strongly attached to case but prying up at the points where tutorial demonstrates works well. Oh yeah, don't forget to power off B4 disconnecting ribbon cables, especially if you have the alarm clock set :/.

    2 hours later my repair is done. Here are my tips to those about to embark on this lovely repair:
    1: Patience is key. I threw my screwdriver across the room a few times.
    2: DO NOT DROP THE SCREWS. I relaxed myself by digging around in the carpet looking for these microscopic things.
    3: Buy a decent kit. My phillips screwdriver was not very good.
    4: Get used to his voice. You will be doing alot of pausing and rewinding.
    Hope this helps! Btw, does anyone know what it means if I have a little bit of discoloration at the top of my screen and also when I push my fingers down hard on the screen, it turns purple and then fades away. Is this a problem with the installation or the screen? Thanks for any replies.

    Perfect tutorial as is. No problem with battery. Took me 20 minutes. Hardest part was lining up the "lego" connectors; didn't want to press too hard. I put screws on a piece of tape and laid them in the same "shape" /orientation as the part they came from: upper right, lower left, center, etc. Thanks much for the video!

  • evanofelipe
    evanofelipe Year ago

    Thank you Jerry, I found your video very useful and played it through several times before actually starting to do a screen replacement. I experienced a couple of difficulties installing Earpiece ribbon cable, that you suggested should have been easy. My issue was engaging the Earpiece ribbon, sensor and camera lens in the casing and getting them to sit firmly in position. The ribbon had to be folded exactly in place to allow the earpiece the ‘click’ firmly in position. The next problem I encountered was refitting the LCD cables in their correct order. I hadn’t noticed the top two cables had swapped positions. This meant that they didn’t fit the appropriate layered ’lego’ connection strips in the correct order when I came to connect the screen to the main body of the phone. When I re-installed various components to the new screen I hadn’t noticed a couple of the ribbons had stacked incorrectly. I had photographed each critical stage of the strip down and realised the cables had to be swapped over. The use of force to make the misaligned strips to engage with each other would have damaged the contacts. So it’s very important to get them in the right order. I felt your video skipped over these very important issue. Thanks again

    My 13 year old daughter was able to do this by watching the video. She dropped her phone on Thursday, which completely shattered the glass screen (LCD was OK), and was distraught because she paid for the phone by cutting the lawn for two years. By Saturday she received her new screen (about $95 all inclusive). She asked me to help her, but quite frankly all I did was watch and give her helpful tips. She did 100% of the work following this video, which was very clear (the clarity and good lighting of the video really helps see everything). We used 2" wide clear packing tape to make little "bins" or "sticky tables", each piece of tape representing a step in the process. Roll the tape back on itself and stick it to the table, then place all the screws and parts in the same geometric arrangement as in the phone so putting it back together was a breeze. The video is excellent and very descriptive, but one of the steps I would have skipped, but not my daughter, was to test the screen once it was plugged in and before the phone was closed up. Great suggestion, as we had vertical lines showing up across the screen and were momentarily disappointed, but we went back and reattached the screen cables one more time and Viola!! it worked and now the screen was as beautiful as if it were new. Certainly a little tricky at times, and if you don't have patience to watch and pause the video and double check everything, then you might be one of the people that thinks it's worth to pay an extra $50 + tax for someone else to do it at one of the phone fix-it places. For me, I think it's better to do yourself not just for the savings, but to make sure it's done right.....I'm sure those phone fix-it places lose a screw here and there and wouldn't care about your $650 investment as much as you do. One note I would stress, although most of the kits for sale come with the mini screw drivers, is to have a couple of decent small tools near by, like a good set of modeling tweezers and a wide x-acto type blade, and a magnifying glass or lupe Thanks for the helpful video, so good that a small 13 year old can do it!

    This looks really easy, and it is. He does a very good job explaining how to do it. I finished mine and it worked for a few seconds while testing it before closing it up. So I closed it up tried it again, and nothing. I opened it up again and repeated everything just in case something came loose. Closed it up and still nothing. I took it to a local iPhone repair and everything is wiped out of my phone because good old Jerry here doesn't tell you that you HAVE to disconnect the battery before replacing the cover! Thanks Jer for loosing 2000 pictures, all my contacts, all my music, and everything else. Be nice to know what to do first!!!!

    Thanks for the videos. I wouldn't at all recommend using a razor blade though to pull up the home button flex cable. If you damage it, you pretty much are permanently screwed out of TouchID since the home buttons can't just be replaced (cheaply, at least) as they only work with the motherboard it came with. And on 7 & 8 that would actually render the home button completely useless.

    Some tips from me. I've made it and everything is working. I've replaced screen, charging port(jack, microphone, charging port) and ear speaker.
    1. Don't mix your screws, especially from metal plate which covers tape from LCD. You will destroy motherboard.
    2. Pentalob opens only two screws outside.
    3. Look at the sequence of tapes. Biggest, smallest, medium
    4. Don't touch left and right side of the screen, you can broke glass inside.
    5. Gently with home button.
    6. Don"t pull off the micro from bracket. Look at the microphone, it's so small.

    THANK YOU, JERRY!!!!! This video saved my phone (and saved me money) last year during the "plandemic enclosed time" when it broke. I´m not good at electronics, yet, I was amazed I was able to fix it!!

    Thank you so much. Worked for me. I replaced my iPhone 6 screen myself. Everything seems to be working great as of now.

    Well, I slowed the speed down to .75 so I could follow properly, and am impressed by Jerry's tutorship - step by step, every detail made sense; however, it takes MUCH longer than 5 minutes (in my case, and hour and a half!) and unfortunately for me - which has nothing to do with Jerry - after following every step, my new screen didn't work (i.e. my iPhone, which was working fine before only with a broken screen, won't turn on at all. So I unplugged the connectors and painstakingly slotted them ('like Lego'!) back in, but still no repaired phone...the replacement screen must be a dud.) Personally speaking, if it were not for current Covid-19 conditions, I wouldn't have attempted to do this tedious and neck-sore inducing thing at all! As-is, no reward means it's definitely going to the repair shop as soon as a repair shop opens!!! Recommend this video for everyone who has more flair for these sorts of jobs than I do. :)

    Awesome - great tutorial and saved me a fortune in paying someone to do this for me. A bit fiddly but easy to do it you are careful and take your time.

    Worked as advertised, Thanks! I unplugged the battery as per comments below and it took maybe 1.5 hours, but it was worth the $50 gamble to save an otherwise perfectly good phone.

    Hi, Jerry! thanks for making this screen replacement job so easy. Quick question, please. What do you think the problem is if the phone doesn't turn on after you connect the 4 lego-like pieces? The phone was working before I replaced the screen. Do you think the new screen doesn't work?

    Great video! I can't believe it genuinely does take about 5 minutes, give or take a few depending on how annoying the screen is to get off. I was wondering, do you know if anyone makes a connector adapter for iPhone screens? I have a cracked but functional one now and I'd love some sort of iPhone screen connector to usb adapter so I could use it as a computer display

    Thanks mate, fixed my non-functioning touch screen in a few minutes......Turns out when I dropped it last the connectors had detached from the logic board and just needed to be clipped back on properly......Legendary video.

    Awesome video. Saved me 50 bucks. I didn’t take the battery out, just powered down like the video said. Everything works fine. It took me about 20 minutes. But I didn’t need to replace the camera part at the top. DO NOT MIX UP THE SCREWS. They are very specific. He says the connectors fit like legos. If legos were microscopic. :)

    There is a very important point missing in this video which could destroy your motherboard - making sure the screws go back to the same place because their lengths are different. The longer one could screw into the motherboard if placed in the wrong slot.

    You do NOT have to disconnect the Home button ribbon cable from the backplate (only remove the screws). It will save you trouble and reduce the risk of Touch ID not working after you put it back together.
