My Problem

I have been an electronics repairman for years and just began a new journey to open my own wireless repair facility and needed a few tools. I came across an article about another cellular repair shop using IFIXIT.com tool kits and when I looked into it I found the kits had exactly what I was looking for at the right prices.

My Fix

The tools work excellent and are made of good quality materials. I have not yet run into a wireless device the toolkit does not have the right tool for. Thank You for an excellent product.

My Advice

Use professional grade tools from a professional company like IFIXIT.com.. Great customer service, resources and materials!!!

My Problem

I teach an ipad repair class to a group of 8th graders. This order was just to replace some tools. We are going to give the isesamo tool a try. Our best tool so far has been a metal spudger. It has a triangular end an a curve spatula end. You sell one that looks like it but the spatula end is to dull to get between the glass and bezel. I hope the isesamo tool does the trick. We will repair a couple hundred iPads this year and your tools are indispensable.

My Fix

We have not had a chance yet to give the tools a run. I am sure they will be just fine.

My Advice

Find a supplier of sharper metal spudgers

My Problem

The battery had been failing for some time, getting weaker every day at the end.

My Fix

Not much to tell. I followed iFixit's guide for replacing the battery in a 1st gen iPod Touch. Each step went just as the Guide stated. And I succeeded!

My Advice

Just follow the Guide. This is my third use of iFixit's guides for diverse electronic repairs. And each time the guide lead me to success.

My Problem

I purchased the tools to use at my volunteer "job". Our group of GE retirees gifted more than 650 donated computers last year. All computers and other equipment are given to any qualified non-profit organization that requests one or many computers. Read about our group and the process for requesting computers at computerrehab.org. The 54 piece Driver Kit is a second kit that I own. Although there are duplicate bits in the two kits, there are many bits in the second kit that are not included in the original kit.

My Fix

Most of our repairs are successful, having the right tool makes the access and disassembly much easier. Our failures and obsolete equipment end up being stripped and recycled. We raise several thousand dollars a year from recycled copper, aluminum, motherboards, CPU's and memory boards. Most of the dollars are used to purchase hard drives, printer cartridges, batteries and tools.

My Advice

Any repair job is much easier when the right tool is available. i believe that one should buy the best quality tool that is affordable.

My Problem

the ground connection was broken and l put it in the shop to get the screen fixed and the shield the up by the display chip was gone the iphone work and l could hear sound but no picture and l looked up the iphone connection and the shield and the connection was gone so l have been look for the old iphone logic board

My Fix

I am still look for a board or iphone with water damage and will try to remove the ground connection and repair it

My Advice

find a good repair computer

My Problem

My Problem

My son has had his iPod touch for about 2 or more years and the battery was at a point that the unit would not hold a charge for very long. He uses this thing continuously and it is important to him. I had seen on iFixit that you had a replacement battery and the tools/instructions on how to do it. I am an electrician and a electronics enthusiast so ordered up the tools and replacement battery and got it done

My Fix

Did the repair in very short order, the instructions on the iFixit website guiding me all the time and the repair was a success, i am a hero because of you guys!

My Advice

iFixit ROCKS!

My Problem

I am not happy with the pricing on the the existing pressure sensitive graphics tablet/monitors so I have been experimenting with making my own.

My Fix

I'm not sure what I'm doing so this may be a disaster but 1) I will learn so much from the process and 2) I may end up with an awesome homemade version of a Cintique.

My Advice

None to offer yet

My Problem

orig. battery was weak, didn't hold much charge

My Fix

The first battery from iFixit resulted in a phone that appeared bricked. Phone would start but not boot, not able to restore or leave recovery mode. DFU mode could be achieved but nothing else.

Mike picked up my comment on the "meta" site and suggested I send a note to support@ifixit.com, which I did. I was sent a new battery without asking for one, nor anything else. When I asked why this was I was told the battery or soldering job might have been bad ...

The second battery arrived, I removed the first replacement and reinstalled the phone's original battery --- it booted up perfectly. I removed that and installed the new, second battery from iFixit and all's well.

My Advice

If you fear the worst, reinstall your old part and verify you can get back to the original condition that required a fix (if applicable, of course.)

And go slow with the back cover. I bent it where it meets the antenna cover and now doesn't close completely.

My Problem

Battery was not holding a charge

My Fix

I was definitely scared about attempting this project. The first challenge (prying open the antennae cover) was very daunting. I've uploaded a pic for illustration purposes - A is where I started to pry open the case, and B is the correct location for prying open the start of the back cover. Once I got that part off, my confidence became stronger as I continued. I must say this is a difficult task, but is doable with steady hands and calm nerves.

My Advice

Buy all the suggested parts and tools, follow along with the online guide ( I used my hp tablet ). I also think that the guide needs to be more explicit. Prying of the black part n this device is the hardest, once you get it off the rest is a piece of cake.
