iPhone 5S Home Button Repair In Kolkata


1. Power off your iPhone 5s


switching off iPhone 5S


Before performing any repair on any device, always remember to power it off. Simply hold down on the Power button until you see Slide to Power off. One you’re sure your iPhone 5s is turned off, proceed to the next section.


2. Remove the two security screws on both sides of the dock connector

There are two security screws that secure the screen to the frame and they sit on each side of the dock connector. Use your 5-point security screwdriver to remove them. They are both the same size so it’s okay if you mix them up.


3. Remove the display assembly


Place your suction cup slightly above the Home button assembly and secure it to the screen.


Removing display assembly


Holding the iPhone in place with one hand, gently pull upwards on the suction cup until you free the bottom of the screen but do NOT pull up all the way at this point as a cable running to the Touch ID sensor is still connected. You only want to separate the screen about an inch at this point.

Now that you have a clear view of the cables, use the pointed edge of your spudger tool in order to carefully remove the metal shield covering the Touch ID cable.

Make sure you don’t lose the metal guard that covers the Touch ID connector.

Again, use the pointed edge of your spudger tool in order to disconnect Touch ID.

You can now safely swing the display up more in order to see where it is connected to the board.

Remove the four screws holding down the shield that covers the display cables. To do this, use your #000 screwdriver.

Once all four screws are removed, carefully remove the shield and set it aside.

Now use your spudger tool in order to remove the three cables shown in the image below. You’ll need to remove the two off to the far right in order to reveal the third and final cable, which sits below them.

The display assembly should now be free from the body of the phone. Go ahead and set everything but the display assembly aside now.

4. Replace the Home button flex


Remove the top right screw holding the Touch ID cable in place using your #000 screwdriver. There is a tiny metal guard underneath, make sure you hold it in place so the cable doesn’t spin or tear underneath it. Also make note of the orientation of this guard as you’ll need to replace it again during re-assembly.

Once you’ve gotten the top screw out and set that and the guard aside, you can fold back part of the Touch ID cable in order to remove the two screws holding in the shield that sits above the Home button. Again, use your #000 screwdriver.

Lastly, very carefully use your spudger tool to start prying up the Home button assembly which is held in with a bit of adhesive. Be careful doing this as it’s easy to tear cables that run to the Touch ID sensor.

Once you’ve broken all the adhesive under the Home button gasket, the entire Home button assembly should lift out of the screen assembly, Touch ID still attached. If you’re having issues removing the gasket, try heating up the button slightly to break the adhesive.

Now simply swap the new Home button flex in the old one’s place. If you ordered the parts I’ve recommended above from eTech, the home button is already in place. If you ordered from elsewhere and got only a flex, you’ll have to transfer the Home button and gasket over to the new flex. Just be careful not to tear the gasket while doing this.


5. Replace the display assembly


Reconnect the three cables shown in the image below, starting with the cable to the far left, which sits underneath the other two.

Replace the display shield using the four screws and your #000 Phillips screwdriver.

Replace the Touch ID shield that sits over the cable.
