My Problem

Hard disk failed after 5 years of hard work.

My Fix

The repair went so easy. I confess that my worries were much bigger than the problem.

My Advice

Well, the enlightenment came from IFIXIT of course. The step by step guide made it so easy to replace the HD that in less than an hour my IMac was back in business, provided that i had a clone on my dead HD.

My Problem

Hard when out and computer was doing a hard shut down.

My Fix

With your guide easy as pie.

My Advice

Don't hesitate and worry about repairing, the guides and procedures are easy to follow and simply to do.

My Problem

I had an '07 iMac and for various reasons (free upgrade, iCloud, iWork, etc.) I upgraded from 10.6 Snow Leopard to 10.9 Mavericks. While they are compatible, 10.9 slowed my machine down quite a bit. I was considering buying a new machine, but I feel like this one still has some life left in it. It still had the stock 250GB HD and given how Mavericks uses the hard drive I figured a 2TB upgrade would help improve the speed. It's a much smaller investment and if it didn't help it would at least make the iMac more 'sellable' to help pay for a new machine. It ended up being just the trick. The machine now feels as fast as it did with Snow Leopard installed.

My Fix

I've upgraded many Macs and this was one of the easiest. A newer iMac might have been trickier with the front glass glued in place, but the suction cups opened this one up as easily as a G3 tower. Some people said suction cups weren't necessary, but they were totally worth it. The whole thing went so fast I forgot to take any pictures! My only obstacle was the T6. I thought I had one, but it was a T5. I only needed it for two screws so Murphy's law said one of them was the screw that would be nice and tight. I ended up sacrificing my T5 by filing the tip of the tapered bit off, essentially making it a T6/T7-ish bit (T6.5?). After that everything went very smoothly. I was upgraded, reassembled, and restoring from a Time Machine backup in about 20 minutes. Counting clearing off my desk and the T6 obstacle, the whole thing took about 40 minutes.

My Advice

I had an extra pill case with a compartment for each day of the week. I used it to hold the screws as a went along with one compartment for each step. Made it much easier to go backwards for reassembly. I also worked with the iMac on it's back and the top of the screen facing me. I think this actually made it easier to remove the hard drive this way by just bracing my fingers and using my thumbs the release the drive. Of course, it also meant all the pictures in the guide were 'upside-down,' but I managed to find a everything. Having the guide on display on my iPad really helped.

My Problem

Machine at a university with the hard drive failing (would not install OSX 10.9). Do a memory upgrade at the same time.

My Fix

No problems - the glass is awfully thin though and it would be nice to know it was held by magnets.... Took less than an hour.

My Advice

Maybe swap around steps 6 and 7 as the display data cable is shorter than the LED backlight cable. Use a magnetic tipped screwdriver as the screws holding down the display can quite easily fall into the unit. I magnetised mine using the magnets holding the glass.

My Problem

After owning an iMac for 5-6 years, the hard drive had filled up, and the times required to boot and open applications were very slow.

My Fix

Ordered up the parts for RAM and hard drive upgrades from iFixit and followed the online instructions, referring back to the video guides as necessary. This took me essentially a full working day -- not the replacement of the physical parts, but the restoration of the software/the desktop. The steps involved in the latter were not intuitive and took lots of poking around the Internet to find what I needed. Nonetheless, I got there in the end.

My Advice

As you go through any procedure in iFixit, follow instructions closely, improvise where you feel you can get away with it, and use Google frequently as you restore your system after replacing physical components.

My Problem

Crashed

My Fix

Great

My Advice

Video was a great help. Label the crossover cables before disconnecting them. In my model at least, they were both wired with all gray wire.

My Problem

Failed hard drive. Ifixit made it look easy and I figured compared the the price of a new computer, the $120 hard drive and a little time was well worth it.

My Fix

First of all I had never even seen the inside of a computer. I didn't even know what a hard drive looked like. Once I figured out mine had failed I asked one of the computer geeks where I work what he would charge to fix it or if it was worth fixing. He said I should check out ifixit.com. I took his advice and it couldn't have been easier. The detailed instructions and pics were spot on. The formatting was definitely the longest part (took over 2hours). A big thank you to ifixit. I will definitely recommend to others.

My Advice

Honestly, the instructions and pics are so detailed and written in the precise order needed that I can't thing of a single thing that would have made it easier. If I could follow them anyone should be able to.

My Problem

After many years my faithful iMac had become terribly slow. After doing all the maintenance I could I realised that the 2GB of RAM was the most limiting factor. I put up with the slow as molasses response of the iMac for a year or so until I finally cracked. I looked up how to upgrade and found iFixit. At the same time I thought I'd upgrade my HDD.

My Fix

With the iFixit android app by my side I really felt in control. The RAM was a doddle and the HDD replacement guide really helped me get the job done. Thanks so much.

My Advice

You'll need another person to hold the LCD panel on the iMac when you are disconnecting the cables. This wasn't mentioned in the guide but I don't see how it could be done any other way.

My Problem

The hard drive was full. And the optical drive would not write CDs. I replaced both. I purchased a 2 TB HD and cloned it and purchased a replacement optical drive. I used the repair guides in iFixit.

My Fix

The repair went very well. Both documents were very well written and illustrated and easy to follow.

My Advice

One thing I did which helped me when I reinstalled the LCD monitor was to use sharpie pens to color code the white connectors so that I could easily tell which connectors went together.

My Problem

Parce que le disque dur original était hors fonction et trop petit (250 Go)

My Fix

Super bien passée avec l'aide du guide.

My Advice

On donnait ce conseil. Mais je n'en ai pas tenu compte. Erreur. Il est essentiel d'avoir des tournevis Torx très longs et aimantés afin d'enlever l'écran. Vous ne pouvez travailler avec vos doigts. De plus il n'est pas nécessaire de défaire les câbles de caméra et de microphone dans le haut de l'écran iMac. Il faut simplement avoir suffisamment d'espace pour rabattre le cadre blanc sur l'espace de travail en faisant très attention à ne pas briser les connexions.
