My Problem

So, as i was sitting at work i get a call from my daughter. usually that means money or something is up. i asked her was she in jail? or did she get caught in the dorm drinking? or what does she need me to send her? She begins to tell me that she was using her computer and she spilled a little water on her macbook pro and it made a glitch on the screen and turned off. my spider senses went inot full on alert. How much is a little bit of water and where did you spill it, i asked calmly. On my mouse pad area and not much. what is not much sweetie, as the pitch in my voice rose. Less then a cup? a smidge? a drop? Barely any she tells me. Well i am no dummie, if something shuts off it is not good. So, i go to my trustie google page and type in what happened. I start reading the stories and i am freaking out, !@#$ i just bought that thing at the beginning of the school year, there goes 1,400 bucks. Well i read that she needs to unplug it and then maybe put a towel in between the keyboard and screen, shut it and turn in upside down so water can go onto the towel. I then pull myself together and tell her everything is going to be ok, daddy will fix it. Yeah, right....but, then she says i have a paper due for midterms. i instruct her to go to that big library they have at UNR, and use one of those computers. she tells me i have to walk all the way there. yep, wear comfy shoes love, i tell her.

the only saving grace on it is that we are going up there in a day to pick her up for spring break. We get up there and i stop by a staples to get a little tool kit to take those !@#$ little screws out with. I take the back off and unplug the battery, i then let the back stay open to dry out.

We go back home and then take a trip to Universal studios hollywood for spring break. when we come back, i put the battery back in and close the back. with my arms, fingers, toes, legs and what ever else i can cross i fire the laptop back up. well, it comes on with no problems and the mouse pad seems to work. not even 10 mihutes later, she comes to me saying the mouse pad is all weirding out on her. So, back to google i go...i search mouse pads, replacing and how to do that. your site pops up and i see that you have the trackpads. well, i have opened up my macbook pro to repair the dreaded dead screen/nvidia chip heatsink problem. that was tricky....i find the one i need and promptly order one up for overnight shipping. I get it the next day, watch the great instructional video you have of taking out and replacing the trackpad. i proceeded to unscrew everything and replace the unit. it was really easy and fast. I put everything back together and cheered. i had no left over screws and was not missing any either. i usually have that problem. i fired that bad boy back up again and bammm! everything worked. i had a happy daughter and the earth once again was re-aligned.

thanks again

My Fix

the process was easy to do even for a newbie working on macs. since i had dismantled my mac book pro and put ever thing back together again it was easy to do. i watched the video once and took off the old trackpad and put the new one in. no extra screws even. put everything back together and fired it up. trackpad works great and so, far so good.

My Advice

i would tell someone wanting to know how easy it was....i put it on a scale of 3 out of 10, fairly easy if you know how to use a screw driver and have some know how.

i wish i would have found your site earlier, it would have calmed a dads nerves sooner.

My Problem

Super erratic track pad.

My Fix

Super quick and easy to do. No stress.

My Advice

The four tiny screws that hold the trackpad to the top case, are SUPER SUPER TINY. Be prepared.

My Problem

My trackpad stopped working because of water (most likely). The trackpad could respond to scrolling, dragging, and pointing but not tapping, which meant not clicking or double clicking.

My Fix

The repair guide was incredibly detailed and hit all the major aspects of the repair at hand. No qualms. I often turn to ifixit for all my repair and teardown needs.

My Advice

Yes. When you are installing the trackpad, and the computer is upside down (ie you can see the logic board), consider placing a handful of paper between the screen and the keyboard. This will create enough resistance so that when you are re-attaching the small screws to hold the trackpad in place, you can put pressure on the papers not your screen.

Otherwise, good luck, and godspeed.

My Problem

Two Trackpads that stopped working. One with button error, the other witout touch.

My Fix

Repair went very well. No problems with the right tools. Used 20.min pr touchpad. Saved me lot of money compaired to Apple Dealer Repair Shop.

My Advice

You need the Y iron for this job.

My Problem

My daughters trackpad was acting erractic. After reinstalling OS had same issue figure i would replace trackpad since can't replace kid

My Fix

went great and my teenager is happy again. This site is great pics were very helpful.

My Advice

go slow those small screws are a pain but not as painful as listening to a teenage complain about their macbook

My Problem

The trackpad on my wife's mid 09 MBP was not recognizing the physical click, for almost two years. The optical drive was also not functioning for over a year. We have three kids and they sometimes move faster than we can take things away from them.

My Fix

Due to the step by step guides the repair was easy peasy. It went just like the guides said.

My Advice

The only surprise was the torque screw under the trackpad. There was no mention of this in the guide and the trackpad came with a new one (didn't use). Because it seemed to be just a screw and the new trackpad worked fine with the old screw, I just left the old one in there.

My Problem

I did what every laptop owner ever has done; I forgot the one basic rule about laptops. Don't. Ever. Drink in front of the computer. Sure enough, I ended up emptying half a glass of juice into my trackpad. Apple juice, none the less. You'd have thought it would make the trackpad work better, not ruin it for eternity.

But alas, a dysfunctional trackpad was what I ended up with. A cursor jumping all around and opening programs, and even swiping like a madman if I would dare to enable the multi touch-commands.

My Fix

Exchanging the trackpad was a breeze. An earlier, failed, attempt at opening up the Macbook and cleaning the trackpad had left the screws holding the trackpad into place utterly destroyed, and as such it was a good thing brand new ones were supplied in the trackpad spare kit.

My Advice

Use icetrays for keeping all those tiny screws in order. And please, please, don't drink in front of the laptop. Not even apple juice.

My Problem

I had dropped a single drop of water into the crack between my computer chassis and the trackpad, this has been the second time (the first time I got Apple to repair it as a "defective" trackpad but the second time I brought it in, they said that the change in performance was not enough to constitute a replacement) and the clicking mechanism and clicking and dragging required excessive pressure to ensure proper function. So time for my own replacement!

My Fix

The replacement was easy and took about 20 minutes. The toughest part was getting the ribbon cable through the weird guillotine structure and onto the logic board. Also, centering the trackpad was not as intuitive as it had seemed.

My Advice

Plenty of light, and some needle tipped tweezers should be added to recommended tools.

My Problem

My trackpad was acting up. The cursor was jumping all over and was clicking by itself.

My Fix

The repair was easy. Took all of 10 minutes. And my trackpad works again!

My Advice

This was a very easy fix. Plus with the computer open I was able to clean with compressed air.

My Problem

the mouse was bouncing all over the screen! it was clicking and highlighting stuff - it had a mind of its own! I thought that the NSA had hacked my computer!!!

My Fix

So well; I had gotten confidence opening the machine from when I replaced the battery using the advice and materials I got from the ifixit; so I said that I'd do myself again!

My Advice

This is the best website! I love it! Just do what they tell you; follow the instructions and all shall be well :)
