Yes. We are still repairing iPhone 5 pry damage

I get asked every day if we are still repairing what has become a classic defect:  No Power/Lock/Sleep Button + No Home Button Function after Battery Replacement in the iPhone 5.  

Yes.  We are still seeing quite a bit of pry damage as the leaves fall here in late 2014 in upstate New York.  We have repaired hundreds of pry damage phones both domestic and from International destinations all over the globe.  There have been two that I couldn't fix.  One--a young man who, in a genuine effort to be helpful, tweezered the dislodged components off his board to save them for the repair---and in so doing relieved the board of 5 out of 6 pads.   The other I called uncle on tonight---it was missing a pad and had a prior repair attempt using my nemesis: conductive ink.  That awful stuff made all the components swim around when trying to place the microjumper to repair the pad.  There were tiny conductive balls everywhere, what a mess.   

Other than that, we have fixed every one and are still going strong.  We love to share tips and tricks to help the DIY and mobile device repair community master basic soldering skills to help keep devices going longer.  But this repair, pry damage, is not the one to learn on! 

If you've finally gotten your iPhone 6/6+ then now is a great time to send that old 5 in for a pry damage repair so that you can sell it for some Christmas cash before the value decreases after the holidays.   For instructions to get your repair set up, just click over to the mail in instructions tab.  If you don't want to check out of the repair store, then just fill out your work request to indicate that you'd like a Paypal invoice when the repair is done.

Jessa i've been reading all over about this fix! ( :) My iphone got its battery fried while recharging in a car :S. So i got the battery changed but that didnĀ“t work out to well... it got stuck in a 3-5min loop, even with a fully-charged (faux) battery, and the % charged value not exactly matching when plugged in. So it may be that fl11 capacitors (and adyacent?) got damaged electrically?

I am glad you ship internationally, as i would be sending my phone (or board?) from Mexico!


How hard is it to replace the U16X on the I5? I dont know how to efficiently remove the black resin before taking off the IC. Do you have a link or a trick that you can show me?

Thank you, Kabloui


whats the shipping cost from WA STATE to you?
I have. Pry damage on my phone also.


I'm stuck in the restore loop after replacing the battery on my 5c. I was hoping you guys can help me figure out if it is pry damage or a very easy fix I could do myself.


After I changed my battery on my iPhone 5 it was constantly rebooting.

I sent it to Jessa and she fixed it quickly and at a reasonable price!

Thanks SO Much Jessa.



I've managed to mess my iPhone after changing the battery. No home and power button for me now. How much does it cost to repair? I'm based in the UK.



I am in need of my iphone 5 to be repaired. I am replacing the screen+digitizer and the plastic layer between the connector for the digitizer and lcd got lifted up and 3 of the components underneath it separated from the logic board. They are still attached to the sticky plastic. What would I be looking at for repair cost?
