iPhone 5 Screen Replacement In Kolkata


1. Search For Parts

The first task is to find the replacement, You can purchase it online or from your local retailer but be sure the replacement you are getting is genuine and warranted.


2. Power off your iPhone 5


Switching off on iPhone 5


Before performing any repair, you should always turn your iPhone completely off by holding down the Power Button and using the Slide to power off feature. Once the iPhone has completely turned off, you can move on to the next step.


3. Remove the two security screws in the dock connector

There are two security screws on either side of the Lightning connector port. Use your security screwdriver to remove them.


4. Remove the damaged display

There are two methods for removing the display. If you’ve cracked the bottom pretty badly you may find it hard to get a seal with a suction cup. We’ll walk you through both ways of removing the display.


Suction cup method

This is the method we recommend and the one you should use if you can get a seal. If not, use the straight edge razor method below.

Position your suction cup firmly above the Home button.

Gently pull upwards while holding the phone down with your other hand.

The display is in there pretty good so you’ll have to apply quite a bit of strength to pull it out.

Just make sure you keep your hand over the top of the iPhone as you don’t want to completely pull the display off. There are still cables attached underneath.

Once the display has dislodged from the device, swing it upwards to expose the cables connecting it underneath.

Move on to the next section.


Straight edge razor blade method


If the bottom of your iPhone 5 screen has shattered badly, it’ll be next to impossible to get a good enough seal to pry it up. You’ll need a straight edged razor blade for this method. Be careful and work slowly not only so you don’t damage the iPhone but more importantly, so you don’t cut or hurt yourself.

Start at either side of the Home button and carefully work the razor blade between the frame and the glass.

Slowly pry upwards until you get an edge freed enough that you can slip a pry tool or spudger in between.

Now set the razor blade aside and continue to work around the bottom and bottom edges until you free the display from the frame.

Do not pull it straight upwards but instead, swing it upwards as there are still cables attached at the top we need to remove.

6. Ready the new iPhone 5 display

Odds are your new replacement display will come stripped down to nothing but the display assembly. We’ll need to remove some pieces offthe old cracked display to place on the new display before laying the new assembly in place.

Now use your pry tool or spudger to carefully lift up the display shield off the back of the display. The best way is to slip your pry tool beneath the shield at the bottom on either side of the Home button. The shield will easily lift off.

Now remove the earpiece shield at the top by lifting it off and setting it aside.

The front-facing camera and sensor cable sits to the left of where the earpiece assembly was and lines the top of the device. We need to remove it.

Carefully lift it up but notice the kink in the cable underneath the front-facing camera. The noise canceling mic is pushed into the display assembly. Pop it out carefully.

The rest of the cable is only held in with a tiny bit of adhesive. Carefully peel it back to finish removing the cable from the display assembly.


8. Remove the Home button assembly


Remove the two screws on either side of the Home button assembly using your #00 Phillips screwdriver.

Start lifting the Home button shield starting on the left side but don’t pull completely up yet.

On the right-hand side, you’ll see a contact that’s stuck to the display assembly that runs on the Home button shield. Use your finger or pry tool to carefully break the adhesive.

Set the Home button shield aside.

Now we’ve just got to remove the actual Home button. Simply push the Home button up from the front of the assembly and use your pry tool or a metal spatula to loosen the gasket on the back side.

The Home button should come free pretty easily.


9. Transfer the removed components to the new iPhone 5 display assembly


Now that we’ve removed everything from the old assembly, we can transfer it to the new, unbroken assembly. In order to do this, just follow the above directions in reverse order or refer to our video where we’ll walk you through readying the new assembly.

Once you’ve finished readying the new assembly, continue on.


10. Replace the iPhone 5 display assembly


Start by securing the three cables back to the logic board.


Reattaching cables in iPhone 5


Replace the logic board shield cover over the cables and secure it with the three screws we originally removed using your #00 Phillips screwdriver.


Setting again screws in iPhone 5


There are plastic clips that run along the top of the display assembly like you can see below. These need to sit underneath the inside of the frame.

Starting from the top make sure you slide the clips in place and carefully work your way around the edges of the display applying even pressure to snap the display into place.

Now that you’ve finished reassembling your iPhone 5 you can go ahead and turn it back on by pressing and holding down the power button until you see the Apple logo.

If all went well, your iPhone should boot up just fine. Make sure to test the new replacement for dead spots and check the display quality to make sure there are no dead pixels or discoloration. Since you did have to transfer components that control brightness, sound, and the proximity sensor – it’s always a good idea to test those functions too so you know you transferred all the components over correctly.
