Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Hi, this ‘trying to fix’ video shows me attempting to fix 2 faulty iPhone 6S that I purchased on eBay for £105 and £55.
Remember that this is just for entertainment and I am not an expert in these repairs. The processes in the video may not be the best way, the correct way or the safest way to fix these things.
I do love fault finding and trying to fix broken things so I hope that comes across in this ‘Trying to FIX’ series.
Many thanks Vince.

it's pretty sad that Applie are putting chips into the screens so they can pair the phone to the screen, effectively stopping anyone from changing their own screen.(forced to stop 3rd party repair)

Psilli says:

What do you do with this stuff that buy broken/faulty and then repair? Do you sell them later or just keep them?

Great video as always!

Heya Vince,

A lot of switch users, including myself, are experiencing the joycon analog sticks “drifting”. Could you find some solutions to that?

My tv screen is cracked can you show how to fix a cracked tv screen without having to buy a brand new lcd

Wow… you're one very lucky bastard :D:D:D If that battery would have been loaded and connected when you swapped the screen, you might have ended up killing the motherboard. That is waaaay too lucky of you 😀 Congrats.

:))) When using Siri, wait for the tone before starting to talk… it will not pick up anything before the tone 🙂 Try waiting for the tone and speak after that 🙂

my dad did not throw away my sharp 37" TV, my dad set up my xbox one s with it and my tv is 1080p

Gabriel Androczky says:

You could have looked up a repair manual on ifixit.com to disassemble correctly … also, a mere hairdryer is too weak to loosen up that contact glue without ripping it and lose dust proofness.

Gabriel Androczky says:

I'm not there in the video, so I don't know how it turns out, but you can't swap the Touch ID as it's paired with the motherboard so if you replace the screen, you'll have to swap the touch ID over. On the other hand, do not try to disconnect the screen with the battery attached (obviously if you did, it's too late to warn you… that would ruin the motherboard and/or loose touchID functionality).
**EDIT: you swapped over the TouchID, well done.


Can you do a “trying to fix a PS4” next ?


iPhones are for the three G's

jof says:

The screen is darker because it’s an aftermarket screen and they can’t seem to get the white just right

Tip: Always disconnect the battery.
Use a plastic spuger, you don’t want to pull any components off the board

It would be cool if you could do a trying to fix a fou;ty laptop from ebay.

The good old days when Apple Head headphone jacks…

I want one xd

Sinan Altinova says:

Just a little tipp: it often helps to convert the original metal plate (behind the screen ) on to the 3th party screen … if anyone have problems with a screen replacement not working after repair .. that atleast worked for me.

Ps.: its always a good idea to copy over everything of the original screen (camera modul,speakers,touch id button, metal plate..)

You are supposed to disconnect the battery upon opening
