Use this guide to replace the upper component cable containing the flash, microphone, volume controls, and sleep/power button cable of an iPhone 5c.

This guide requires removing the battery. Removing the battery with the adhesive strips is the safest method, but also leaves your battery without adhesive. When replacing your battery, use a piece of double-sided tape to secure it. The battery is pretty tightly secured in the device, but the tape will keep it from rattling.

  1. If your display glass is cracked, keep further breakage contained and prevent bodily harm during your repair by taping the glass. Lay overlapping strips of clear packing tape over the iPhone's display until the whole face is covered. This will keep glass shards contained and provide structural integrity when prying and lifting the display.

I've replaced the cable and everything works except the volume rocker? If I tighten everything and out the phone back together the volume seems to be stuck in a permanent down position. But if I open the phone back up and loosen the screws the volume doesn't work at all

Tom - 답글

I've seen a few cases where the button action was extra sensitive to screw tightness. The "permanent down position" you describe does sound like the screws are too tight. It's a pretty subtle difference between "too tight" vs "too loose." I would suggest fine-tuning the screw tightness on each side individually until the button action feels good, then reassemble and test. If the action is good but the volume still doesn't respond, you've likely got a disconnected, damaged, or faulty cable.
