Poor engineering on HP side enables user to put TouchPad Tablet into sleep-of-death. Translated: If you leave you device in sleep mode the battery can drain completely and then can NOT be charged. The internal charging circuitry relies on the internal battery having some charge.
Followed instructions and used the purchased tools to open and get the battery out. I then tried to charge the battery without success. Battery reads 0v after several hours and permutations of charging externally.
1) Looking for new replacement battery
2) Will update the iFix guide with advice on rebuilding machine as like the guide suggested the clips will break.
MUST use strong Metal Spudgers. Read and review guide text and pictures closely.

In preparation for the upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks, I finally decided to replace the original internal Apple Disk Drive with a fresh one from you folks. While the old drive was still operating fine, I knew it was on "borrowed time" as the iMac is 6 years old.
Both your written instructions online and the Video were EXCELLENT! It does get a bit scary to open up your iMac for the first time since leaving the Apple factory in 2007, but it all went perfectly. Thanks.
Keep up the good work iFixIt!

Needed to replace iPhone 4 battery and also put on the revelation back cover.
The experience went well. The battery was indeed stuck down with much adhesive, so keep prying and it comes out. The tools were useful. All in all a good experience.
It's not hard really. Just keep prying at the battery!

We had a student spill a glass of milk on top of one of our 1 to 1 MacBook Air Computers.
We were able to take the computer apart with the Pentalobe screwdriver and clean up all of the milk.
I purchased the best version of the screwdriver. I find the quality of it to be great and I am hoping that it will last us through several repairs. Never buy cheap tools. ;)

Would not turn on.
Replaced power unit. Powers up and works. Every once I'm awhile when jostled slightly it shuts off still though.
Unplugging, removing battery and givin 10 minutes it will start again. No idea why.
Be methodical and don't rush this one. Its nearly a complete tear down. If one one follows the instructions and has a good set of T5-T10 drivers I think it's possible an 8 year old MIGHT be able to do it.

There was a hazy spot in the center of some pictures. It seemed to be focus related. I could see a white spot that appeared to be on the inside of the outer lens. The instructions said I needed a very small "star" screwdriver for the lens screws.
The repair went perfectly. The instructions have great pictures (http://www.wikihow.com/Disassemble-the-L...) and except for the "star" screwdriver reference were perfect. It turns out the screws are Phillips or JIS (too small to tell) not Torx or pentalobe. So, while I did not need the 54 bit driver kit (I already had a small Phillips head driver) I am now ready to fix my iPhone, iPad, TomTom, laptop or any other electronic marvel I care to dissemble. The metal Spudger set made the job much easier than the dull paring knife I used to use to pry things apart.
1. Do not believe the words in the repair instructions. Look at the pictures carefully. The picture clearly showed a "x" screw head not a "star".
2. The proper tools make every job easier.
