My Problem

My McBook Pro LCD was accidentally broken by my son as he step on it and make it as his skateboard.

My Fix

It's a great experience, just follow the step by step procedure and won't get far. All in all is a success repair and now my MacBookPro back to life again as good as new.

My Advice

Take your time on removing the front glass panel.

My Problem

Screen would not display image unless pressed on.

My Fix

Went perfect with only 1 hitch. The heating and suction cup method did not work for me. However, I was able to cut a thick piece of plastic from a jar and wedge it between the screen and glass on the left side and take the heat gun and slowly heat up the glass moving the plastic with it. Surprised I didn't break the glass as I had actually ordered it thinking I would of.

My Advice

Something, look at things a little different.

My Problem

The glass display on my macbook pro cracked. I have no idea how my screen cracked but I was definitely not paying Apple for their over priced services. I'm pretty good with my hands so I decided to fix it myself.

My Fix

It took me and my girlfriend about two whole hours to fix my screen. We used a house hold hair dryer along with the Heavy-duty suction cups I purchased with the display replacement. I broke the screen even more while trying to remove it. My girlfriend and I actually had to take the glass off piece by piece at the end. After the long grueling two hours we finally managed to get the screen off. It took no time to put the new screen on. I was so relieved when we got it. Didn't break anything important, and now it looks like new!

My Advice

Have someone to help you if your screen is cracked. It helps to have someone hold the computer while you take your old screen off. Also try very hard NOT to break the glass while you're removing the glass. It's real glass!

My Problem

i accidentally dropped my mac on the floor, it landed with a thud!. the display was fine but the glass panel cracked :-\

My Fix

I got it repaired from a local nearby apple technician.. got the exact product that i required :) with matching specifications.. the delivery was also fast n efficient! got my work done in $150 instead of $700 (what the apple service centre here asked for)

My Advice

dunno..it looked complicated to fix it myself..so went to a local technician who took just Rs.750

My Problem

The macbook Pro fell, and the glass was cracked all over. Luckily this was the only thing broken, no essential hardware was broken, everything still worked perfectly.

My Fix

Actually it went very smoothly. We started at 7PM and it was finished by 10.30PM.

The only bump on the road was that the suction cups didn't stick to the glass because of the cracks all over the glass. So we needed to poke and pull and twist until all little pieces of glass were removed (this process took 1.5 hrs).

Luckily no sign of ravens. Some pigeons though.

My Advice

The stuff about the suction cups and the cracks (see repair).

It was a very frustrating and slow process. We were afraid to damage the LCD.

If you have this, and you don't have a steady hand, leave it to someone who does!

My Problem

broken front glass

My Fix

good deal. about one hour down time to fix. all is well. excellent easy to read guide.

My Advice

the suction cups are most useful.

My Problem

There were lines in the display

My Fix

It was fun, but removing the top glass was not as easy as it was shown in the guide, but latter we figured out the correct temperature that has to be set to melt the tape or gum... Ended up breaking a new tool(heavy duty suction cups) that we purchased from Ifixit but other wise it was fun :)

My Advice

don't be worried about setting little high temperature while removing the top glass....

My Problem

Screen glass on the MacBook Pro was cracked.

My Fix

Okay, well, bottom line: it worked. Overall, it took about 2 1/2 hours, but I was working really slowly. The big problem in the process was heating the glue around the old glass with a hair dryer and trying to get the old glass off. It just wouldn't come off. Because we already had a crack all the way across it, the glass finally fractured and we ended up getting it off in pieces. Luckily, the LCD display was not damaged (I work slow when necessary). Reassembly was smooth.

My Advice

The first plug that you have to remove: it pulls out parallel to the board, not away from it. And the old glue -- I have no idea what would've worked better. We had the hair dryer on high, and got the glass warm, almost hot and it just wasn't coming out like in the instruction and pictures. No enlightenment here. And we didn't take pictures....

My Problem

MacBook Pro 13" Front Display was broken. TFT Display was OK.

Two year old iPhone 3GS battery fasten discharging/empty.

My Fix

Order process and delivering of the parts very fast and perfect in time. had a little surprise with additional tax-costs (25€).

Replacement gone very well. no problem fixing it. Guidelines very helpful. Needs patience and carefully handling with steady soft force.

tools included at replacement battery pack was very helpfully.

suction cups are a must for successful repair of mac pro front display.

My Advice

silence, patience, steady soft force. don't listen to the good advices of your ...

all best from vienna/austria
