Product Details Edit

We know that different jobs call for different prying tools. Often times, a stiff plastic card is just the thing for slipping into the tight nooks and crannies of a device, such as an iMac. Do not use a credit card, as the raised numbers and letters can damage the device.

My Problem

L'iPad 3 a chuté dans la salle de bain !!

My Fix

Très bien, trois heures pour changer la vitre ! Une fois qu'elle est cassée, il est très difficile de la décoller, sans les outils impossible, merci iFixit.

My Advice

Attention à l'antenne WiFi en bas à droite !!

Beaucoup de patience !

My Problem

My dear lappy's screen has been broken for three years. I've had a PC monitor hooked to it, effectively making it the world's only desk-bound laptop. Frankintosh still ran well, though. I had to do something.

My Fix

"Oh, this is pretty easy, doot doot doo. I mean, if I can do this without--what the !@#$ is an inverter cable?? No. I can't see that! IM FLYING BLIND." *Yosemite Sam noises for 45 minutes* "I friggin hate every !@#$ crap--yes, children dinner, I know Mama is busy dealing with this stupid ugh--oh, hey. It's in. Cool. That wasn't so hard." Then we made love. In the form of various display tests.

My Advice

The spudger on it's own was very little help on seating that inverter (I assume I'm calling that little pink and white bastard its proper name.) A paper clip, bent would have done the trick if I had it, but my final effective solution was to put a weeeeeee bit of stickum (used the bits of tape inside the unit, to be exact) that wasn't TOO sticky to get the plug parked more securely on the spudger. Used the plastic cards as spreaders. Cried out to the gods.

My Problem

Remplacement du disque dur original 1To par un 2To

My Fix

Ayant suivi le guide iFixit, tout c'est bien passer.

Seul petit soucis rencontré : Le Décollage de l'écran en partie basse. Une fois soulevé il n'est pas si simple de le décoller. Le passage de la carte plastique pour "couper" la colle existante n'est pas vraiment efficace. J'ai été obligé de mettre un très léger coup de cutter pour couper la colle.

My Advice

Au recollage de l'écran, le reposer presque en parallèle au support, mais ne poser d'abord que la base de l'écran (attention pas complètement parallèle pour ne pas coller les trois autre cotés avant branchement des nappes de l'écran). En cas d'une repose trop verticale il reste un petit espace entre le verre et l'alu en pied d'écran et donc un léger décalage de l'écran vers le haut après rabattage pour collage complet.

My Problem

Changement d'écran pour un portable (ordinateur) targa et surtout bientôt d'un iPhone 4

My Fix

pour l'ordinateur : pas de problème tout c'est bien passé, fini en 10 minutes (et encore) ! :)

My Advice

attention à la nappe !!

My Problem

My Fix

Well the install went ok up till I plugged in digitizer. Digitizer end of ribbon plug fell apart. I have only found one plug, but company will not sell me plug. They will install it though. Grrrr! Hey ifixit, can you sell me the plug??

My Problem

I was happy with the prevoius purchase of the Toolkit for myself , I decided to offer one to my older boy who is fond of repair computer in particular for his 18th birthday

My Fix

replace Lop to HD

My Advice

do not hesitate to start repair work, learning by doing!

My Problem

It may sound like a small problem but it was a big deal for me.

My Fix

It was so fun. It was my first repair and I felt very happy with my self when I fixed it.

My Advice

Thanks so much.

My Problem

We had an older 21" iMac bite the dust so we purchased a new 27" late 2013 build iMac but due to incompatibilities with Esko & HP DFE (Indigo) software we're not able to run Mavericks which came on the machine and needed to move backwards to Mountain Lion.

Apple has made it next to impossible to go backwards with the OS and it's been a total pain in the butt!

My Fix

The process went very well and the directions from iFixIt were spot on! One word of advice... the new iMac is using "flash" storage not an SSD so there was really no need to open the unit.

But the process of cutting it open and sticking it back together isn't difficult at all, so don't be afraid to try it if you want to replace the hard drive on the basic machines that use them.

My Advice

THE FIX: I used a hard drive dock with a spare drive I had on hand and install OS 10.8.5 on it. Then I booted the new iMac from that hard drive via the usb hard drive dock.

NEXT STEP: I used the Disk Utility app and erased the Mac HD flash storage, and then used my Mountain Lion thumb drive and installed the OS on the Mac's flash storage. The entire process took about 30 mins. and the iMac had zero problems running the older OS.

LAST STEP: I did a migration from the old 21" iMac using a Time Machine backup and "bam" all is right in my graphics world once again.
