My Problem

Dead hard drive in a 23" iMac

My Fix

It took me about 20 minutes. But, I am a stickler for perfection. Nothing exploded. Nothing imploded. There were no extra parts when I was finished. Opening up an iMac is both thrilling and terrifying! :)

My Advice

I didn't need the spudger at all, as recommended. I'm glad I had it and didn't need it instead of not having it and needing one. On the video, it would be infinitely more helpful if the shot showing what "wire" need to be disconnected was a wider shot so you can actually see what, and where, the wires to be disconnected are. That was pretty much a guessing game. Guessing on a machine like that can be a little scary until you put it all back together and...WHEW!...it works!

My Problem

Basically, my original hard drive has served well for the last 8 years, but was finally fading. It just couldn't handle being the boot drive anymore, and kept getting lost when I tried to boot from it. In Recovery mode, it would only sometimes appear in Disk Utility: sometimes looking just fine, sometimes appearing as an unreadable unformatted disk, and sometimes just not showing up at all. Booting from an external drive, I did manage to salvage all of my files, but even booting from the external, the internal just sometimes didn't feel like playing. I tried everything to salvage it, including several reformats and reinstalls, but nothing would save it. For about 2 weeks, I just lived with simply booting from the external all the time, never knowing if the internal would be in a mood to work. But it's a USB external, not something smoother like a Firewire, so I just wasn't enjoying my old Mac as much as I usually do. So I decided to get a new drive.

My Fix

The repair went very smoothly. I've opened it up before to dust it out, so that wasn't so difficult. Once you pop the glass, the bezel, and the screen off of it, it's just a simple matter of popping the old HD out and the new one in. Probably my biggest difficulty was that my big fuzzy cat was intensely curious about the process, and stray cat hairs kept getting inside, especially between the LCD and the glass as I was trying to put it back together. Overall, it took me about an hour, but mostly because I was very curious myself, and spent a lot of time just looking at how the guts of the thing were all connected. I had fun, and I like that this new drive is significantly larger.

I had so much fun with it that I kind of wish I could do more upgrades to it, like swapping in a more modern GPU. Alas, my research indicates that the 2600 it came with is the fanciest GPU it will accept. And it's still working fine, just getting dated. Oh well.

My Advice

Keep the cat in another room.

Also, I think what ultimately did in my old HD was too much heat over the long-term. As it gets older, it seems like this iMac's automatic fan speeds are no longer accurate or sufficient, even if you dust it out regularly. I recommend any one of the many open source fan control programs out there to ramp up the fan speeds a bit. Try to keep things under 50° C if you can.

My Problem

The Hard Drive in my mid 2010 27" iMac went out. I did have a WD external HD Time Machine back up.

My Fix

Opening the iMac, removing the screen, R&R the HD went OK....but

My Advice

Be sure you have an external bootable drive to set up the new HD! I thought you could Command-R and set up the HD from an online Apple source. NO, you can't. I had to borrow a Mac laptop from my daughter to make an external bootable OS disk. The easiest way is to use a program called DiskMaker X 4b4. After I set up the OS the Time Machine restore was easy.

My Problem

My hard drive had completely crashed, needed to replace.

My Fix

It was quick and easy, other than one hiccup in that my drive was a Seagate and I had ordered a Western Digital accidentally. However, iFixit was great about sending me the right drive, and I have sent back the prior one.

My Advice

It appears some people have problems with the temperature sensor. I found that by properly marking the wires, I had no issue reinstalling the heat sensor cable and having no issues with the fan. Again, felt the whole process was very easy and quick.

Also, to restore the drive with Mac OS X, luckily had been regularly backing up with Time Machine to a NAS, and so it was really easy to restore from a time machine image.

My Problem

iMac Intel 24" Hard Drive Replacement. Hard drive went TU while I was using the computer.

My Fix

Repair was complicated with a lot of steps but not difficult, tools recommended and replacement drive were exactly right. Were in our 60's and got bored after supper the day the parts arrived. It took about 2 hours but I'm old, recovering from a stroke and kinda slow.

My Advice

Do it. Just take your time and follow the excellent instructions on line. While you have it on its back and helpless upgrade the RAM too. This saved me a bunch in repair bill or a new computer.

My Problem

I have an IMAC from 2007

Harddisk had just given up

Tried to repair using Disk Utility, but to no success

My Fix

Very, very easy

Before purchasing anything, I watched maybe 5 different Youtube videos on how to change the harddisk

Harddisk arrived really quick (had to by a suction cup and a special screwdriver head)

Changing hardisk really easy

Once machine reassembled, popped in O/S disk, reformatted Harddisk (just to be safe) and restored from Time Machine

From start to finish 3 hours max

Really feel pleased with myself

My Advice

Watch the Youtube videos

My Problem

I got back from Holiday in New Zealand and turned on my Imac it ran for an hour or so. I stepped out and when I returned it had a white screen and nothing would happen. I rang apple and they got me to try a few things and it still didnt work. I ended up taking it to the local Apple store in Watford. They said because it was a 2009 model it was vintage and they couldn't get any parts. They suggested I go to a specialist apple repair store which I did. After 2 weeks they rang me and said it is completely broken and cant be fixed.

I then decided that I would give it a go myself and started with the hard drive. I looked at the internet and thanks to the Ifixit site I decided I would get the recommended hard drive and try it myself.

My Fix

It was scary to pull the IMac apart however I had watched the video a number of times and followed the instructions. I managed to swap the hard drive and then create the USB boot drive as per intructions. After some fiddling around with the format I manged to install OSX 10.10 in the new drive. My computer has been running fine ever since.

My Advice

Dont believe everything they tell you at the store. I manged to save myself a fortune on a new IMac by fixing this one. Its running just fine now. I was really scared at first but managed to do it all myself and all under $200.

Give it a go. If its broken it cant hurt to try

My Problem

We bought our iMac over 6 years ago. I've replaced the optical drive twice and the CPU fan once. Other than that, we've had no problems. Until recently. A few weeks ago, the computer began acting badly...much like I expect computers running Windows to behave. Lagging, randomly closing programs, locking up when asked to do basic tasks, etc. It finally got bad enough for me to do some research on troubleshooting. Disk Utility revealed that the hard drive needed repair. Okay. Did what we could but there was damage that required replacement. To ifixit.com I went. I decided that while I had the computer open anyway, I might as well double my RAM so I went ahead and ordered RAM as well as a HD with 3 times the space as my original.

My Fix

The repair went flawlessly, as each repair I've done using the ifixit guides has gone. The instructions were clear and the pictures clarifying. I did forget that I'd have to format the drive and so was a little disappointed when I first plugged it back in and turned it on. Doh! Once I formatted the drive I used my Time Machine backup to bring my computer back to life. I expect it to run for another 6 years with so few problems that I forget how to troubleshoot. :)

My Advice

Make sure you've got a can of air in your tool bag. Until I open up the computer, I forget how dusty it is in there. While it's open is a great time to blast some of the dust out of there. Also, make sure to be careful with the locating pins on the glass of the iMac. This is the first time I've broken off a pin and I hit it so lightly I didn't even realize I'd bumped it until the pin hit the table. Very, very delicate.

My Problem

The dreaded red letters on Disk Utility..."This hard drive is failing. Back up as much as you can and then run in circles screaming for help!"

My Fix

Easy peasy...just like the pictures. My stubby fingers and 60 year old eyes were no help but the tools worked great!

My Advice

Some advertising slogan says "Just do it!" Why not? Oh, and Carbon Copy Cloner.

My Problem

I out grew my 320 GB stock Hard Drive. So I needed a 1 TB drive.

The local tech store wanted $320. I figured I could take my wife for a steak dinner with the saved $s.

My Fix

Followed your guide and finished in less than an hour. It was flawless with only one minor glitch. I had to figure out when to turn my Mac 180°. Sorry the dog ate my photos.

My Advice

Add a Micro Fiber cloth to Tools and a can of air. I needed the air to rid my Mac of all the dirt and dust inside. The Microfiber cloth was needed on the monitor and inside of the outer glass.
