Bad iPhone 4/4S or an iPhone 5/5S with faulty power in, no audio out, water based corroded pins, failed speaker or bent pins in docking port. I can fix it!



You can't get your iPhone to charge or do a data sync. Likely the docking port/module is the cause.

I have a reputation for repairing iPhones that have been dropped in water. I also repair non-water immersed iPhones. The most common repair is for a cracked upper glass but I also do many other types of repairs.

When I repair your iPhone, all of your music, videos, photos and data of types will still be there afterward. So will your contacts and calendaring and apps

I always encourage people to call me to discuss what they are having as a problem before sending their iPhone into me. The reason is that a symptom is often mis-diagnosed by the phone user. Example:

"My battery isn't charging so I need to get my battery replaced."

That problem could be just one of a number of possibilities.

1) bad docking/charging cable
2) bad wall adapter at the wall side
3) bad docking module from corroded contacts/bent over pins
4) bad connection for power to the logic board
5) bad battery recharge circuit on the logic board
6) bad voltage regulator board on battery itself
7) failed battery due to chemistry unbinding


So you can see how one symptom can appear to have a single obvious answer and isn't.

In the iPhone 4/4S models, the docking module incorporates:

The docking port, with the 30 pin connection (pin bed), the internal microphone, the connection for the Home Key ribbon to connect to the phone and the connection from all of those to the logic board.

1) no microphone when you are on a call. You can hear them but they can't hear your side of the conversation.
2) faulty data or power connectivity. You would notice that pins are bent, folded over or have a greenish tinged corrosion inside the bottom of the phone
3) potentially the Home Key not working (likely from water based corrosion at the bottom of the phone damaging the jack for the Home Key switch)
4) potentially the battery not charging.



In the iPhone 5 and 5S models, the docking module incorporates:

The docking port, with the 8 pin Lightning Port connection (pin bed), the spring contacts for the internal speaker, the spring contacts that make the Home key work, the microphone, and the connection from all of those to the logic board.

The reasons to replace the docking module in an iPhone 5 /5S would be,

1) the mic at the bottom of the phone
2) faulty data or power connectivity. You would notice that the Lightning Port nibs are damaged or have a greenish tinged corrosion inside the bottom of the phone. The lightning port is particularly susceptible to salt water based corrosion. Almost any exposure to salt water will destroy the spring loaded contact nibs inside.
3) potentially the Home Key not working (likely from water based corrosion at the bottom of the phone damaging the jack for the Home Key switch)
4) potentially the battery not charging.

It is also sometimes practical to notice what the condition of your battery is. It's a good time to replace the battery when this is being done because they both tend to wear out at the same rate. Look at the "plus new battery" column for pricing that includes battery.

Pricing for all these aspects is in the tables below. Look up what it is for your model iPhone.
