The battery in my Pokemon Emerald GBA game was dead.
I unscrewed the screw that holds the game's cover in place and then used a knife to pry the contacts from the dead battery. This took some effort as the contacts did not want to let go. I finally got the battery out and inserted the new battery. The new battery was quite a bit bigger than the old battery but it still fit. The cartridge does bulge a bit now, but it still fits in the console and still works. It also no longer puts up the warning that the internal battery is dead.
The only thing I would say to anyone attempting this style of repair is to make sure you have plenty of light.
The screen kept on locking up and had to do a hard reset to get mac back online
Very straightforward - followed the ifixit guide
Nope - just follow the instructions
Our Wii would not read disks. We just used it for Netflix for a while, and were about ready to throw it away. Thought about trying IFIXIT and found that I could get a new drive for about $50. Drive showed up very fast after the order. Took less than an hour to install, and Wii is now working as good as new.
This is great because we have a lot invested in games and related equipment, and because my daughter is thrilled to have a game console. (we aren't big into games, and the Wii is plenty for us).
Thank you IFIXIT.
Repair went well. Followed instructions. Kept close track of what screws came out of what locations. Really glad I ordered the 3 blade screw driver.
Make sure you have a 3 blade screw driver. The only concern I had was getting the ribbon cable back in straight. It doesn't really have a connecter, just a lid to compress the cable end to the connecting spot.
