Stories

My Problem

The original had become unusable. Too many sectors gone bad.

My Fix

The iFixit PDF was almost dead on accurate.

My Advice

In my particular case, the thermal sensor cable warnings didn't apply. The connections were built as such that there is only one way to plug it in if it was to be plugged in at all. Now this might be because the drive I was pulling was not an Apple original. It was one that Apple had installed as a replacement for the original one that had come with it on a massive hard drive recall. The very original drive I am pretty sure was a Toshiba, the newer one that I had to replace was a Seagate. The one that I bought from iFixit was also a Seagate.

My Problem

Let me start off by saying I am a DIY type by nature and I was born in 1971. Therefore, being DIY for me means I am more familiar with carburetors, brakes, and camshaft installations than hard drive replacement. However, my age does not change my mental disposition to FIXIT myself. When something (anything) is broken at my home it takes a lot before I cave-in for DIFM service. I have even changed my own automotive glass despite numerous service providers offering to do the job "fast" which can be code for "careless".

I should also add that I too graduated from Cal Poly SLO (’94) and built and sold 2 DIY-oriented web properties (row52.com & fordmuscle.com). I was floored when I read the return address as Monterey Street, San Luis Obispo when my hard drive showed up just 2 days after watching the most encouraging IFIXIT DIY video on replacing the HD in my EMC 2390 iMac. So what was the problem? S.M.A.R.T error. Mandatory message to replace my HD.

My Fix

Replacing the HD itself went very well despite there being no obvious fasteners or access points on the machine. Anybody with automotive repair experience can appreciate how disorienting this can be. The physical component of swapping out the drive was painless. I was surprised with the amount of dust inside my machine so this was also a great time to vacuum the internals. Buttoning the machine back up was a breeze as well due to the video. Little did I know the most painful part of this project would be reinstalling the original OS X from my install CD and optical drive, Snow Leopard 10.6.3. This is where I had to improvise and get a bit aggressive.

My Advice

In my particular situation, I was faced with a questionable optical drive or bad install CD. I could hear the CD spin up then spin down until the machine ejected the disk over and over. My screen showed the “?” almost indefinitely. I should also mention my iMac has a wireless keyboard. This is where I almost broke down and took my mac to Macorama for a $159 diagnostic. I was never quite sure the start up keyboard commands were being read.

Regretfully, I even waited at the Apple Store “Genius Bar” like a pathetic lump for 12 minutes before I walked out determined to correct the problem myself. Long story short, for $16 more than the Macorama diagnostic I picked up a perfect used 20” iMac (2010) off CraigsList in order to use the install CD and hard wire keyboard to perform the fresh OS X install. After a little cleaning of my optical drive with compressed air and a fabric covered gift card, I am happy to say I am submitting this story from my fixed EMC 2390 now running El Capitan. Also, I now have a 20” iMac for my 10 and 8 year old boys to use for school this year, pictured.

Thank you and great work. You guys completed the entire loop. From search, to education, to encouragement, to part fulfillment, and finally to summoning customer feedback in a nice web form.

My Problem

The computer wasn't reading it's hard drive. I was getting a flashing folder sign with a ?

My Fix

Great!

My Advice

There's a missing step in the online directions. I believe that it is to take our the secondary set of screw around the LCD... It was my first time opening up a computer, so I was a little nervous and looked at a few different sources for directions. ifixit's were the best but I also wanted to follow along on video.

My Problem

hard drive was &&^&@@

My Fix

easy peezy lemon squeezey

My Advice

if you don't give it a go yourself your a $&!*

My Problem

The hard drive that came in the unit died. Ordered a new drive to get the unit back in operation. I guess that's not the "why," though, is it? Why fix it? Well, I suppose because I thought it would be helpful to fix it myself rather than sending it to Apple. So, cost certainly came into play. Then again, it isn't MY Mac. So, perhaps I was feeling altruistic in offering to repair it at no cost to the owner. Why did I fix it? Hard to say, for sure. I mean, why do we do anything?

My Fix

The fix itself was easy and straightforward. I did have some issues before I remembered to reset the PRAM. After that, everything came up roses... or whatever desktop background.

My Advice

I recommend not touching the LCD panel. I also recommend not dropping an iMac off the workspace onto the floor. I recommend you watch "Stand By Me." Be nice to each other. Don't spit in the ocean. Don't take any wooden nickels. And, whenever possible, dance the jig on 5th Avenue with a banana in your ear.

My Problem

The screen was white and after checking IFIXIT site, it gave very clear instruction on what is the problem.

My Fix

The repair went flawless after seeing the step by step instruction on how to dismantle, replace, and put thing together.

My Advice

Just follow the step by step instruction!

My Problem

The hard drive crashed and was not going to spend the money for a new computer.

My Fix

The actual replacement of parts was easy, the re configuring and restoring files was a bit trying . I am not a computer guy, I am a race car mechanic, nuts and bolts are easy-peasy. All the reloading of software and recovering of files took about four hours, the drive took less than hour. Everything is working, so I am thinking of trying more of these kinds of repairs. Could be good, could be bad.

My Advice

Go at these things with an open mind, the piece does not work before you start so it can only get better!

My Problem

Factory HD went bad a few years after purchase

My Fix

The repair guide really helped, although it was not entirely accurate. The innards of my iMac didn't match the photos provided but I still managed to successfully perform the swap using the kit purchased from iFixit. Has worked perfectly ever since.

My Advice

Definitely get a sectional tray for storing and organizing the multitude of tiny screws you'll have to remove. Also make sure to carefully and completely clean the back side of the clear plastic display cover. Luckily, it's easy to remove and re-clean with the suction cups since it's attached magnetically. It goes without saying but BACK UP EVERYTHING ALWAYS!

My Problem

The computer would not boot up. It had starting having issues before that. I decided to replace it with a 21.5" iMac. I was concerned about the cost to repair and the risk. After 2 years, I could"t bring myself to dispose of it. After viewing the guides on IFIXIT, I decided to try to replace the hard drive myself.

My Fix

iMacs can be a little intimidating to work on. It's not obvious how to open it for repair. The IFIXIT guides were helpful in this regard. Replacing the hard drive was easier than expected. I had the original OS X disk and application disk that came with the computer. I was able to boot up from the OS X disk and install on the new hard drive. I then updated from OS X 10.6.4 to OS X10.6.8. Then I upgraded to OS X 10.10.5. I now have a 27" iMac running the current OS X operating system for a very reasonable cost and a little effort.

My Advice

The decision to repair or replace a computer is always daunting. At the time of failure the computer was 3 years old. I did not want to invest several hundred dollars to get it repaired. At the time, I thought it would be best to apply that money towards a replacement. In the meantime, I couldn't dispose of it. I'm glad I decided to repair it myself. The IFIXIT guides were helpful.

My Problem

The system disk drive started to report SMART errors and would not allow me to upgrade the OS.

My Fix

The repair went OK. Only problem I had was trying to disconnect the temperature sensor connector for the LCD Screen. I finally decided to not disconnect the cable and instead propped up the screen while I replaced the hard drive.

My Advice

If you can't remove the LCD screen temperature cable, try propping up the display while you change the hard drive. there is plenty of room to get at the hard drive screws with the LCD screen propped up.
