My Problem

old lcd display was broken.frontglass was ok,so i just wanted to change the lcd panel.

My Fix

i used the ifixit guide for lsd panel change.used heatgun on lowest setting to get the glas out with a 0.7mm thick guitar pick.the guitar pick was a real good advise in the rep guide.I also drilled holes under the fan to get temprature down and also install smc fan control.The job was fearly easy.it works well and no marks on the frontglass witch i put back on.the rubber edge had no damage after heatgun use.I am real satisfied.

My Advice

See the rep guide before and under work.Be relaxed.Take it slowly.Guitar pick ticknes o.7 mm nylon was real good to pry the front glass loose.use parts from ifixit.They seems to be of good quality.Never had a problem with parts from ifixit.

My Problem

A fist-sized black hole was left in the upper center of the LCD display after an adjustable halogen lamp decided to take a nap on the upper edge of my open laptop while I was preparing dinner.

My Fix

My husband and I replaced the panel over a three day period. He removed the various screws and parts while I read through the directions and organized the parts for reassembly. We used 9 or 10 rectangular magnets from various vacations (Thank you Glacier, Yellowstone, Acadia, Banff, Jasper, Shenandoah, Yosemite, Arches, Rocky Mountain and Grand Teton National Parks) to hold the screws removed at various steps and labeled the magnets with the appropriate step number so we could reassemble with ease. All was going well until I found that the suction cups I tried to use were not strong enough. Amazon Prime to the rescue! We packed up all the pieces/parts in individual zip-lock bags and waited for the UPS man to arrive two days later with the suction cups. The toughest part was removing the glass panel from the LCD. I personally thought the micro-steps in that section of the repair guide to be overkill... I read through them only to find we had already completed most of them based on information in the first step or two. Anyway...the machine is all back together and working wonderfully. I also took the opportunity to replace the battery while we had the whole thing opened up. So simple... not sure why Apple says the consumer shouldn't do the replacement. My only complaint is that I ordered a Torx6 screwdriver, as recommended by the iFixit site when I order the LCD panel, only to find that not one of the Torx head screws we needed to remove were #6. RB went digging and found a Torx8 socket buried with other mystery parts that somehow found their way into his hardware collection. Thank goodness!

My Advice

The magnets worked very well for organizing screws and saved me from depleting my printer cartridges and wasting paper. Removing the glass beginning at the lower right corner of display and working counterclockwise was better for us than starting at the upper right as mentioned in the guide. I already gave my opinion on the glass removal steps. The only frustration my husband mentioned was that consecutive pictures in some locations in the guide showed the MacBookPro in different orientations. He would turn the computer around to match the pic (so he knew he was seeing the instructions and computer clearly) and then have to turn it once again for the next step. Also, I edited the instruction for removing the camera bracket, which was unnecessary if replacing the LCD panel. Don't order a Torx6 for this repair...

My Problem

My screen kept fading to white on my Mac unibody notebook (A1342). It would work if I put pressure on the side of the screen, but it got old holding the screen anytime I wanted to use my computer.

My Fix

I replaced the LCD with the antiglare screen (IF163-02404) and it works, sort of.

I no longer have to hold the screen to use my computer. However, the built in brightness controls on the the keyboard no longer control the screen. Also, when the computer goes to sleep, the screen does not light back up, on wake. Additionally, on boot up, I no longer see the white spinning circle. The screen stays black, during boot up, and only turns on when it gets to the login screen.

I've turned off the sleep function, for now. So far this is still better than having the screen constantly fade to white.

My Advice

Videos on YouTube are helpful, when you get to the steps regarding the video cable.

My Problem

The screen on my Macbook was cracked really bad.

My Fix

My son installed the screen with no problems and it looks just like new.

My Advice

You can purchase with confidence this screen.

My Problem

I received a free broken MacBook because the original owner understandably didn't want to pay over $300 to get the LCD screen fixed. So I did some research and it led me to ifixit. The price was right and the instructions looked fairly easy, so I gave it a try.

My Fix

This was the first time I have ever worked on a laptop of any kind. The repair was way easier than I expected. The only hard part was the connecting of the LCD. I had tools, but I found that a pair of eyebrow tweezers helped with holding the bottom connection while lowering the LCD into it. It only took an hour and a half from start to finish with breaks for sanity in between.

My Advice

The best advice I can give from my experience is have a clean well lighted workspace, take 5-10 minute breaks when frustration sets in, and keep all cats out of your room.

My Problem

Broken LCD

My Fix

I just broke a Four wire connector in step Four or Five.. To replace the lcd wasnt a Big deal.. Now the MacBook runs again perfectly, just the Sdcard doesnt work.. i think because of the broken connector.. Thanks to IFixit to have my MacBook Pro back!,

My Advice

Be careful to disconnect the different connectors!!

My Problem

Someone dropped the machine, only the upper right corner was broken, but important stuff sometimes appears there!

My Fix

Smooth enough. Yay iFixit. Glad you all get to retire now that Apple has bought your company (and very cool that you got them to agree to make the most repairable devices). You got me, too! ;~}

My Advice

no advice, stay cool

My Problem

My macbook 13" fell down from my office table and the LCD broke.

My Fix

Everything went ok when following the guide.

the hardest step was to reconnect the cable to the lcd.

2 hours working on it.

My Advice

You shoud remove the entire display block (remove crutch guide)

it became easier to hold the cable and slide the lcd panel down.

My Problem

The screen started turning "white". At first i could move the hinged top/display. The computer still ran, but the display appeared to freeze. The problem got worse and eventually I had to flex the display to get it to work. So I decided to have it repaired.

My Fix

I found the repair guide on thed t iFixit site and read through it. The level of difficulty was listed as "difficult". I decided to take it to the Apple store and see what it would cost to repair so I made an appt. The person said that it would cost $280 (minimum). He recommended buying a new Mac (of course). or purchase a Mini display to VGA adaptor. I bought the adaptor and tried that. Was marginally satisfied with that. So I decided to order the replacement LCD from iFixit and a few tools.

My Advice

The hardest part about the replacement/repair was getting the display cable connected on to the new LCD because it is so small and there is very little slack in the cable. I used the spudger and the clip on the cable to guide the connector back on. But I am glad that I did it and saved some money and the MacBook is good again!

My Problem

BEER! Makes everything better! Except laptops. It killed the DC in board and messed with the screen.

My Fix

I've swapped out the board, that's absolutely fine. The screen needs a little more work still, but the old one is ... functional ... still.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to perform even these fiddly repairs. If the machine works, that's the goal. Personally, my macbooks are all missing screws where I forget or couldn't be bothered to put them back in, and I manhandle the logic board with minimal precautions. Obviously, don't throw it around, but no need to tremble in fear when touching it.

Tri wing screws: Hate these things. Find a flat head screwdriver, mash it into one of the wings at 45 degrees and keep trying to turn. Should eventually work.
