@Philip - the dock connector is easier. If you aren't sure which it is, you may want to send it to us to repair or take it somewhere locally, so you don't have to worry about ordering each part one at a time.
Philip

@Powerbook Medic Thanks for the reply. It would be much easier to change the the dock connector first than fiddle with the logic board right away, wouldn't it? But what if the logic board is the only problem, is there any other to get it fixed?

Hi, I have a problem with syncing back my iPhone 4 to my pc or laptop. I have tried to have the logic boardmfixed by some apple expert techs but they said it'll cost me a lot because of the other parts that will have to be changed. Is this true? If i change the logic board, other parts have to be changed too? What if there is just a chip that needs to be changed should other components be changed too?

@wilma - it is hard to say without looking at it. If it says 3G on the phone (different from cell strength), it could be an issue with the logic board not being able to process the data.

@Mary - it really depends what was done to it before for your brother to give you that warning. If it was jailbroken and unlocked, it can be difficult to fix it. It depends what method was used and what version it is. It's not something we can really help with.

Can someone please help. My brother gave me an iPhone 3G that was from an over seas company he told me not to restore it but me being me I did by accident. Anyway when it tried to reboot it was stuck on the connect to iTunes logo but when I did it it didn't help I have tried jail breaking restoring through iTunes but nothing has helped. I really can't afford to send it away to iTunes because I can't afford it I'm just wondering how I can fix it myself and get it up and working again.

Home button does not respond at all I have been using the assist touch option. Sometimes the voice control randomly turns on. If the phone is on or even in sleep it connects to iTunes just fine. It's when I turn it off iTunes sees it as it needs to be restored and if I do that it runs normally. Get to the end where iTunes says phone is rebooting will reconnect when it's done, then when it comes back on restore comes back on. If I disconnect it reboot it will start up fine and plug it in iTunes sees no problem with it. So it's only like that if its rebooting while connected to a computer.
Powerbook Medic

@Mcain - if the home button is constantly being pressed, it may go into recovery mode when you power it on. That is how you force it into recovery mode. Only way to check is to temporarily disconnect the home button and see if it boots up normally.
Mcain

My home button quit working on my iphone 4. I have had it replaced but after a week it stopped working again. The repair guy that did it said it my logic board was bad. I can connect to iTunes and it sees it and syncs just fine. But if my phone is off before I plug it in then iTunes boots the phone in recovery mode. If I restore it it, it seems to do just that but when it reboots at the end it still starts in recovery, no errors. If I disconnect it reboots as a new phone and connects to iTunes to finish setting it up. My question is, is it acting that way because of the logic board being bad?

@Hotrod - I would try a soft reset by holding down the power and home button together. That sometimes fixes it. Besides that I would try reseating the cable and then you may want to exchange the screen for another as it may be defective.

So in the midst of replacing my broken iphone 4 screen, with a complete red conversion kit, i accidentally broke off the very top screw hole on the logic board! oops! Anyways...i have been lookin around and i was hoping there was somewhere to get refurbished logic boards or is there any other solution that you know of? besides spending $150 (at least!!) for one from overseas. Also, do you know anywhere to find a DIY video with detailed instructions on replacing the power/home button flex cable also? Ive looked all around and havent come up with one that is detailed enough. Thanks

I have a problem with my I phone 4, it doesn't display any features on the screen and the ringer doesnt ring out but buzzed with another phone, the call goes through, in essence my phone remains in a hibernation mood and silent as well. What should be done to correct this?

@Mirwals - you can check the available storage space in the settings on the phone. Without booting it up, there wouldn't be a way to confirm easily.

@Sithan - it'd really be difficult to say without seeing it. it could be the board or the antenna.

I bought iphone over 20 days. 5 days ago, a 2.5 tone truck ran over it. Now it does not have coverage connection. It shows "No Service" on the top left. Someone said that it need to get board changed. How can I get it fixed?

my daughter dropped her iphone in soup & the charger port got wet & now it doesn't turn on. Apple tech said something about the crystal is damaged. Is this fixable? She only used her iphone for a day before this happened and will cost $150 to fix/replace per the Apple tech.

@Howell - i would check another device to confirm. A tower may be down close to you, but if another device on the same network gets 3G fine at your house, I'd agree with the antenna.

@Penelope - I'm not sure exactly what you mean. the emergency call message is usually an issue with your sim card or the firmware on the phone. If the sim card is ok, you'll probably want to restore the phone.

hello, brilliant video nice clear and calm... my iphone4 can no longer be charged i can sync but error message "Charging is not supported with this accessory" (i've obviously tried changing cables) i believe this is happening because the phone got slightly wet with rain.. i have diagnosed (zero experience) a problem in the dock connector. i've followed your video instructions but before continuing past battery removal i would like a) buy your iPhone dock connector with mic as replacement and b) find out if there is any way remove the DC WITHOUT having to dismantle the whole iPhone the way you did in the vid. c) if b) isn't possible send my phone to you for repair.

@laura - i would try turning it off and restarting the phone first. Then I would try syncing it up to iTunes and restoring it. This will rule out any software issues. If it still doesn't fix it, I would recommend getting it professionally diagnosed by Apple first if there is no obvious damage.

I replaced the vibrate button on my iphone 3gs. After the fix my back light turns off an I have to apply pressure to the top of the screen to make it work. Also, I ended up with an extra part...a small little metal one, that I cannot figure out where it belongs... I can send you a pic...any ideas of what is causing the back light problem?

@Annette - you can try to take it apart and see where the damage is. You'd look for corrosion damage as well as the dots Apple places around inside that turn red when they've come in contact with water.

Dropped my iPhone in the toilet on Monday it has been submerged in rice. Still won't turn on - it rings when called, makes the sound when plugged in to charger and the vibrate button still works. Any thoughts? My son & husband are both geeks - should we try to take apart and dry it? Thanks, A

Powerbook Medic

@Jason - most people suggest putting the phone into rice to help soak up the water overnight before trying to turn it back on. if it is still dead after 24-48 hours, its best to open it up and check on the damage or have it professionally diagnosed.
