Введение

Use this guide to remove your power button for cleaning, or to replace a scuffed button cover. This guide is for the aluminum button cover, not the mechanical button itself. Use the power button cable guide to replace the mechanical switch.

You can also use this guide to replace the upper cable bracket.

  1. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Pentalobe Screws: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • Before disassembling your iPhone, discharge the battery below 25%. A charged lithium-ion battery can catch fire and/or explode if accidentally punctured.

    • Power off your iPhone before beginning disassembly.

    • Remove the two 3.6 mm-long P2 Pentalobe screws next to the Lightning connector.

  2. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, iSclack Opening Procedure: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • The next three steps demonstrate using the iSclack, a great tool for safely opening the iPhone 6 that we recommend for anyone doing more than one repair. If you aren't using the iSclack, skip down three steps for an alternate method.

    • If the plastic depth gauge is attached at the center of the iSclack, remove it now—it's not needed for larger phones like the iPhone 6.

    • Close the handle on the iSclack, opening the suction-cup jaws.

  3. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 3, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 3, image 2 of 2
    • Place the bottom of your iPhone in between the suction cups.

    • Position the iSclack's upper suction cup against the display, just above (but not covering) the home button.

    • Open the handles to close the jaws of the iSclack. Center the suction cups and press them firmly onto the top and bottom of the iPhone.

    • If your display or back glass is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may help the suction cups adhere. The iSclack also includes two pieces of tape for this purpose.

  4. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 4, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 4, image 2 of 2
    • Hold onto your iPhone securely and close the handle of the iSclack to separate the suction cups, pulling the front panel up from the rear case.

    • The iSclack is designed to safely open your iPhone just enough to separate the pieces, but not enough to damage the display cables.

    • Peel the two suction cups off your iPhone.

    • Skip the next three steps and continue on to Step 8.

  5. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Manual Opening Procedure: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • If you don't have an iSclack, use a single suction cup to lift the front panel:

    • Press a suction cup onto the screen, just above the home button.

    • Be sure the cup is pressed securely onto the screen to get a tight seal.

    • If your display is badly cracked, covering it with a layer of clear packing tape may allow the suction cup to adhere. Alternatively, very strong tape may be used instead of the suction cup. If all else fails, you can superglue the suction cup to the broken screen.

  6. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 6, image 1 of 1
    • While holding the iPhone down with one hand, pull up on the suction cup to slightly separate the front panel assembly from the rear case.

    • Take your time and apply firm, constant force. The display assembly is a much tighter fit than most devices.

    • Using a plastic opening tool, begin to gently pry the rear case down, away from the display assembly, while continuing to pull up with the suction cup.

    • There are several clips holding the front panel assembly to the rear case, so you may need to use a combination of the suction cup and plastic opening tool to free the front panel assembly.

  7. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 7, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 7, image 2 of 2
    • Pull the plastic nub to release the vacuum seal on the suction cup.

    • Remove the suction cup from the display assembly.

  8. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Opening up the phone: step 8, image 1 of 3 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Opening up the phone: step 8, image 2 of 3 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Opening up the phone: step 8, image 3 of 3
    • Open the iPhone by swinging the home button end of the front panel assembly away from the rear case, using the top of the phone as a hinge.

    • Several clips along the top edge of the front panel form a partial hinge.

    • During reassembly, align the clips just below the top edge of the rear case. Then, slide the front panel upward until its top edge is flush with that of the rear case.

  9. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 9, image 1 of 3 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 9, image 2 of 3 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 9, image 3 of 3
    • Open the display to about a 90º angle, and lean it against something to keep it propped up while you're working on the phone.

    • In a pinch, an unopened canned beverage works well for this.

    • Add a rubber band to keep the display securely in place while you work. This prevents undue strain on the display cables.

    • Remove the following Phillips screws from the battery connector bracket:

    • One 2.2 mm screw

    • One 3.2 mm screw

    • During your repair, keep track of each screw and make sure it goes back exactly where it came from to avoid damaging your phone.

  10. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 11, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the metal battery connector bracket from the iPhone.

  11. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Disconnecting the battery connector: step 12, image 1 of 1
    • Use a plastic opening tool to gently pry the battery connector up from its socket on the logic board.

    • Take care to only pry up on the battery connector, and not the socket on the logic board. If you pry up on the logic board socket, you may break the connector entirely.

  12. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Removing the front panel assembly cable bracket screws: step 13, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the following five Phillips screws securing the front panel assembly cable bracket:

    • Three 1.2 mm screws

    • One 1.7 mm screw

    • One 3.1 mm screw

    • Incorrect placement of these screws during reassembly will cause permanent damage to your iPhone's logic board.

  13. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 14, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the front panel assembly cable bracket from the logic board.

  14. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 15, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 15, image 2 of 2
    • In the next four steps, take care to pry up only on the cable connectors, and not on their sockets on the logic board.

    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the front-facing camera and sensor cable connector.

  15. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 16, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 16, image 2 of 2

  16. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 17, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 17, image 2 of 2
    • Make sure the battery is disconnected before you disconnect or reconnect the cable in this step.

    • Use a spudger or a fingernail to disconnect the display data cable connector.

    • When reassembling your phone, the display data cable may pop off its connector. This can result in white lines or a blank screen when powering your phone back on. If that happens, simply reconnect the cable and power cycle your phone. The best way to power cycle your phone is to disconnect and reconnect the battery connector.

  17. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 18, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement: step 18, image 2 of 2
    • Use the flat end of a spudger to disconnect the digitizer cable connector.

    • When reconnecting the digitizer cable, do not press the center of the connector. Press one end of the connector, then press the opposite end. Pressing in the center of the connector can bend the component and cause digitizer damage.

  18. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, Separating front panel assembly and rear case: step 19, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the front panel assembly from the rear case.

  19. iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, SIM Card: step 20, image 1 of 2 iPhone 6 Power Button Replacement, SIM Card: step 20, image 2 of 2

Ive recently done a full housing change on my iphone 6 plus to a black one since doing it the power button doesnt work its rock solid i used original power button (space gray) and original flex cable once istalled it just wont press

The only way it works is if i leave the power button screws slightly loose which is a pain becasue the button loosens itself anyone had anything similar or is it the way its been installed ?? All other buttons work correctly mute switch and volume buttons

marcusdean2009 - Ответить

Hello marcusdean2009 this problem occurs because the new carcass have the power button screw hole a little bit long than the original one. And yes, you will have to let the power button screws slightly loose to make the power button work

Ricardo Gomes -

My power button is a little bit loose. There's still clicking sound but not same as the other normal button,the button also seems 'into' or 'concave ' compare to normal button.while the power button with long shape also seems just have a clicking sound when I press the middle part of button but not the upper and lower part of button.when I press the upper and lower part,it is soft and without clicking sound and springing feel. I used to replace the flex cable, but it still loose,is it the matter of the quality for the flex cable or the improperly attach of rubber gasket or the scuffed of little metal tip of the power button? Please reply me.
