Mijn probleem

One day I dropped my iPhone on the floor and my front camera started showing purple dots (dead pixel). After asking Apple Store how much it costs to repair it, I decided to replace the front camera myself. long story short, I ended up replacing the LCD, the dock connector and the front camera.

Mijn oplossing

The first mistake that I made is forgot to shutdown the iPhone b/c I have been using my Lumia 920 as my primary phone. So forgotten the iPhone was still on I took the screen off and started disconnect the LCD screen from the phone. After that I notice my LCD appears to be on (blank) but not responding to my touch. I had a feeling that I ripped the cable. After I reconnected everything, not only the screen doesn't turn on but my MacBook no longer recognize it.

Then I got a touch base email from iFixit and asked me how was the repair. I explained what happened and they suggested me to replace both LCD and Dock connector. They offered me a discount for those part. After some long consideration, I decided to buy the other two components knowing that I can't guarantee it would be fix.

After 4 to 5 hrs of disassembling pretty every part of the phone and reassemble everything together with the new components, I was surprised that everything works. The iPhone 5 has so many small components that I was worrying I would miss something. I guess I am proud that I got everything fit together properly.

Mijn advies

Read all user comments from the guides and watch other online videos before attempt the fix. AND make sure you turn off the phone.
