Taking it to the shop.

My Problem

battery not charging and i fixed it with your help

My Advice

what a nice thing to print and follow your directions

thanks

My Problem

My wife's MacBook was not holding a charge well, then went black and would not power up.

My Fix

I ordered a magsafe dc-in board and a spudger. They arrived after the expected wait, I followed the instructions and replaced the board. The instructions were easy to follow.

Unhappily, the repair didn't result in a working MacBook. It still won't power up.

My Advice

Be born rich, and you won't have to fix things yourself.

My Problem

Because I didn't want to buy a new laptop for my wife.

My Fix

The parts and tools from iFixit were perfect. The instructions were easy to follow and clear. Everything fit exactly as expected. The Mac charged the battery once after installing the new magsafe board and then, once again, flatlined. No complaints about the iFixit product or instructions. They were perfect, but the Mac in question is just, sadly, dead.

My Advice

It might be nice to have a set of instructions for testing the suspect part with a multitester. I'm sure there is something else amiss with the mac (at this point I have replaced the battery and the charger and, now, the magsafe adapter board). If I could have tested the magsafe adapter board before replacing it I might have saved myself the cost of the part.

My Problem

Wasn't charging unless I crammed the converter cable into the MagSafe DC-In board, which was not always reliable and made my fingers sore!

My Fix

Without a hitch! The part arrived extremely quickly (much faster than the AC converter cable I ordered from somewhere else). The repair was easy and efficient due to the wonderful illustrated instructions from ifixit!

My Advice

Be extremely careful of the little fingers gripping the I/O board; they are fragile and on my book, two were folded to ensure a good grip. I tore one.

My Problem

Super hot magsafe charger end-actually melted the plastic surrounding the pins on the computer side. And the plastic covering the magnet. It barely gets warm now.

My Fix

Went pretty well-instructions are good. I've actually had the keyboard off before-to dust the innards-so that was my practise/dry run. Pay attention to the orientation of the 4 loose plastic pieces that are loosely attached to the lower case near the cd/dvd module. They connect the lower case to the upper case(keyboard). Not sure if I put them back in correctly-but it seems to work so...

My Advice

Additional advice? Not really. -oh wait, I used looped scotch tape stuck to the printed out instruction steps to not lose any screws.

It did NOT fix the intermittent green/orange charging lite in the Magsafe end. So I guess I also have frayed wire issues there? I'll probably disassemble the T-connector to see if I can save myself some bucks. Oh-BTW, I ordered a used part(?), but it looked brand new, never used-awesome! Thanks iFixit-will certainly use you again!

My Problem

Macbook wouldn't charge.

My Fix

It took about 45 minutes and was very easy. The Macbook now charges again!

My Advice

Print out the guide, lay each page out on a table, and as you take the screws out, set each one on the picture showing it. This will make it MUCH easier to put back together.

My Problem

The battery charges VERY slowly on my MB - it estimates it will be charged completely in 10:00 hours or just says not charging.

Sometimes the light goes Green to Amber, sometimes it just stays green.

I've swapped out chargers, and the symptoms persist.

I've bought a new battery direct from the Apple store ($130), and the symptoms persist.

I've replaced the MagSafe DC-In Board ($30 - $40), and the symptoms persist.

The next step is to replace the Battery Connector/Sleep sensor, which is en route. My luck: it has to be the flipping Energy Star part ($70), which costs twice as much as its non-Energy Star counterpart.

Then I'm out of ideas, besides logic board, which I'm not going to do.

My Fix

The repair itself went well.

The ifixit guides are incredible.

I did have problems with the metal "fingers" that guard all the ports on the left side of the machine.

My Advice

I don't have any good advice for dealing with the fingers.

My Problem

My brother-in-law was going to cry. His "baby", a six-year-old macbook that went to war and back with him, was no longer responding to his charger (or mine). The local Apple specialists said his macbook was too old and that he had to replace it. After hearing this from my sister, I did a bit of research and found this place. I happily announced I could fix it for him with a measly $30 part... if he trusted me to take apart his "baby".

My Fix

Now, I'm not new to computer hardware; I've taken apart/upgraded every desktop computer I've ever owned. But I had never touched a laptop's innards before, so I was a tad nervous. The repair went smoothly enough. I used a magnetic dry-erase calendar and some paper to draw color-coded boxes for the screws/parts of each step. It took maybe an hour and a half, tops (taking the time to airblast/scrape off dried sand that was inside EVERYTHING). The results were a perfectly charging macbook and a very happy brother-in-law. Success!

My Advice

It definitely helps to already have a plan for where you're going to dump the screws. I would suggest a magnetic dry-erase board (mine was a calendar, but it worked just the same) and colored markers that match the colors used in the photographic step-by-step manual. And like the instructions say, be VERY careful removing the topcase. I chipped some of the plastic near the right palm rest trying to remove it. That seems to be a weak point for the case in general, but be extra careful not to do more damage than necessary.
