My Problem

I know a lot of people lie about why their phones break. They tell the people at the Apple store that they swear they have no idea what could have possibly made their phone stop working as images of them flying out of a water slide and splash into a pool go through their minds. However, I charged my phone on a Monday night and then was unable to charge it on Tuesday afternoon. The phone, unable to feed itself the electricity it needed, slowly and pitiably wasted away.

My warranty was long past and I wasn't eligible for an upgrade for two months, so I found myself with this dilemma: buy a phone at retail for between $500-$750 or buy a flip phone or, to take a page from the TV show "The Wire," and buy a "burner."

Unless there was another way...

My Fix

The repair was stressful and took a little more than an hour. I had the help of a friend who had performed a battery transplant recently, though his support was more moral than technical. I felt the Fear when I detached the battery and a small metal piece went airborne--note: You never want anything airborne during phone repair--but I recovered the piece and everything was cool.

My Advice

The best advice I could give is to be patient and to make sure you are following the directions properly. The hardest part is that sometimes you have to be a bit rough with some very fragile pieces. Take heart! The directions are good, look at all the pictures, use an ice cube tray to house the screws and miscellaneous parts, and have confidence that you can save yourself hundreds of dollars and/or the shame of using a burner in a non-drug dealing professional setting.

My Problem

My drive just broke.

My Fix

Without any hiccups thanks to your guide.

My Advice

The whole process is easy, don't worry.

My Problem

I have an iMac (from back in 2011) and discovered that the hard drive was on its way out. Looking around, I had a couple of options, replace the iMac itself (not really cost effective), send it to an approved Apple fixer (v expensive) or fix it myself. The problem was, the hard drive itself has been discontinued, and from the UK, expensive to buy like for like. I managed to find a place in Australia who was selling them for around £40 (around $65), so decided to plump for a FixIt kit - after all, I work in IT - so why not. A couple of clicks later from ebay and from ifixit - both parts were being dispatched from different points on the globe

My Fix

Surprisingly easy. I had taken the week off work to do a few bits and bobs, and set aside a whole day to fix the iMac. The girlfriend and I were due to go out on the Friday night for a meal, and between work, run and getting changed, and with the iMac not working at all, I thought I would make a start. Within 20 minutes, I had the front of the iMac off, the screen out, the hard drive replaced, and cables inserted again. All that was required was fixing the screen and front cover back on, which I done the next morning. This was a bit of a bonus as I had the full of my week from work to play xbox, relax and spend eons restoring the data back onto the replaced hard drive.

What I did find, was that because I run alot of gaming on my iMac, I had a utility running to speed the fans up - once I replaced the drive and fitted it all together, the fans were spinning at the same speed as before, without the ability to switch the speed back down to "normal". I thought at this point that I had replaced a cable the wrong way, so had to pull it all apart and start from scratch and do the checks. Turns out I hadn't, so became a bit of an expert at it.

My Advice

Make sure you have enough light in the room, and maybe use your phone light / torch. I also used masking tape to ensure that the cables went back in the same way.

Other than that - follow the instructions & you won't go wrong. I'm pondering getting the kit to add a SDD kit in, maybe I'll need a couple of days for that.

My Problem

Fixed old Cell phone V710 Motorola. I dropped my old V710 and cracked the flip part and had been keeping this thing alive with crazy glue etc. This last phone mishap caused me to lose my flip screen.. :-( I could not see any txt msg's or my contacts or old msg's etc.. :-( I still LOVE this old Flip Phone so I found a nice newer one on e-bay and I purchased it. I needed some good quality tools that could also take apart a mac or a Xbox or a Motorola Phone etc. I had seen a you tube video showing how to take apart my phone and the person was using a spudger tool so I did a search on Google & saw the IFIXIT tools. I purchased the tools and was success in taking apart the newer V710 and then took my phone apart and moved the main board over to the other phone and it all powered up successfully. I now have my phone back and in allot better shape. Thanks IFIXIT.. IFIXED it with IFIXIT.. :-)

My Fix

AWESOME!!

My Advice

If you need to take apart a phone, eye glasses, a mac lap or XBOX IFIXIT tools are the way to go. Very durable quality tools. I ended up buying two different sets to take advantage of the different sets of IFIXIT Tool packages.. :-) I am very happy with my IFIXIT tools and would highly recommend them to anyone.. :-)

My Problem

The button doesn't "click" anymore

My Fix

wonderfull repare procedures...

But my button was not the problem.

I've changed it and the battery too, but i should repaire the "click" part of the power button with a "scotch" to recover the function.

Now everything goes well

My Advice

be carefull on what you do and everything is fine explained.

My Problem

Display had shattered on a relatively new, 64GB, iPhone 4S. My father-in-law dropped his 64GB, iPhone 4S and it shattered. He replaced it with an iPhone 5. He decided to give it to my son to use essentially as an iPod Touch. Given that it was 64GB, I felt like it was worth $100 to try and fix it given that a 64GB Touch is $400. So I ordered the kit, including the tools to make the repair.

My Fix

The process went great. I used a blank piece of paper and taped down the screws/pieces for each step. It took me a couple of hours but it went great. You guys are awesome! A couple of the steps I had to figure out the notes you guys listed, but all in all it was straight forward and everything works. I really appreciate it!

My Advice

I have a 4S where the power button doesn't work. I ordered replacement parts for this as well. I will tackle this tomorrow. But, if you have a cracked case, these directions worked like a charm and saved about $300 to get an equivalent iPod! Thanks again - iFixit!

My Problem

Xbox disk read error.

My Fix

Easy

My Advice

Make sure you open the xbox first so you get the right drive.

My Problem

Because the home button don't respond anymore and it's really frustrating.

My Fix

The guide was really clear.

The only problem is that after the installation of the button the button respond when you touch it, but don't work when you push on it and sometimes apps close when I'm working on it or the voice function starts.

I'm gonna re-open my iPhone and I'm gonna search the problem.

My Advice

Follow the guide step to step and set notes to the screws on every step.

My Problem

Mon 4S ne fonctionnait plus au niveau du son. Il fonctionnait en mode haut-parleur et avec le casque. Le diagnostic sur de nombreux forums était de changé le Dock connecter. J'ai changé et en plus j'ai changé la batterie au passage.

My Fix

Bon j'appréhendais au début. Mais en fait c'est assez facile avec les kits et les bons outils. J'ai perdu une vis mais au final cela ne joue guère sur le résultat final. C'est stressant, mais pas si dur en fait. La grosse déception c'est que mon problème ne s'est pas résolu. Il semble que c'est la prise jack qu'il faille changer. prochaine réparation.

My Advice

Bien faire attention aux vis minuscules et pas si simples à manipuler.

My Problem

Needed to get the fan to cycle on and off to prevent overheating.

My Fix

Went fine. The tools enabled me to open the case and push down the thermal sensor cable more firmly in its socket.

My Advice

Don't be concerned about opening the Mac Mini case. It is not that difficult.
