Mijn probleem

Bought this phone from a friend at work and it had a cracked screen and the power button did not work. I have replaced several screens, batteries, and dock connectors, but I was rather hesitant to take on the power button flex cable. Being as I only paid $30 for the phone, I figured I didn't have much to lose so I dove in head first.

Mijn oplossing

The repair went swimmingly. Followed an instructional video step by step and made sure to keep careful track of all the screws and placement. Everything went as best as it could have. Power button, mute, and both volume buttons now work and with the new screen it's almost like a brand new phone. I am very pleased with myself and ifixit.

Mijn advies

My advice would be to take your time and pay close attention to what you're doing. Do not try to rush or force things and if something seems off or wrong then it probably is. Always double check your work before moving on. Also make sure you have all the proper tools and accoutrement at hand before undertaking any sort of repair.
