How to fix your iPhone 5c vibrator function
Fixing an iPhone can be easy

Sometimes it is hard to know if the iPhone 5c vibrate not working is a software issue or a hardware issue. Because the vibrate function can be toggled on or off by different means on the iPhone, there are numerous situations where it may look like you've enabled or disabled it, but actually haven't. Luckily, there are a few ways to check whether or not your iPhone has a hardware error or a software problem, and if the hardware issue can be easily fixed. If you're interested in getting your iPhone 5c vibrate feature to work, follow the guide below:

  • Toggle the switch on the side of your phone to make sure that it doesn't vibrate.
  • Turn your iPhone off and then on again.
  • Head to settings, and check "Vibrate" under "Sounds" to be sure that the slider is turned to the right, signifying that the phone is set to vibrate.
  • Restore your phone by connecting it to your computer, and set it to factory settings. Then set it to "Vibrate" under "Sounds" again.

If, after all of the above steps have been followed, your iPhone 5c vibrate function is not working, you will need to repair it or fix it.

Repairing the iPhone 5c vibrate function
The tech-savvy instruction writers over at iMore have a process for replacing your vibrator assembly so that your device can hum once again. The parts used in this will include a replacement vibrator, a standard Phillips screwdriver, a razor blade, the iSesamo opening tool and a few other common iPhone repair components, like a suction cup.

Preparation
Turn off your iPhone 5. This is the first and most important step if you don't like being electrocuted.

Removal
You will need to use your security screwdriver to remove two screws at the bottom of the iPhone 5 by the dock, then use your suction cup to pry open the screen. Use the small Phillips screwdriver to remove the three screws that hold the display shield down, and then use the Spudger to remove the display from the board.

Removing the vibrator
Using your small Phillips screwdriver, remove the three screws and lift the old vibrator and then put the new one in in the exact same way.

This is a complicated process, and it may not fix the problem of your iPhone 5c vibrate not working unless you perform it with a surgeon's precision. For technical jobs that you can't afford to have fail, contact us at iResQ and we'll fix your phone.
