My Problem

The 1TB hard drive crashed and I reformatted and restored it but then it crashed again about a day or two later.

My Fix

The hard drive replacement was a breeze. It took about 1hour and after formatting the new drive and loading OS X Yosemite all I had to do was restore my files from my backup USB drive. The free hard drive replacement guide was easy to follow. Also it was a nice upgrade from my original 1TB drive to a 2TB. Over all I am extremely satisfied with how everything went.

My Advice

The only issue I encountered was after I completed the install my drive fan was running at max speed. Got on the web and found an app called iStat Menus. This app had a menu that enabled me to control the fan speed with no problem.

My Problem

Easy to do and very inexpensive way to get computer working

My Fix

Very well for a novice at this type of repair.

Great instructions. Could have used info on material to use in replacing the heat sensor to the HD. I used a silicon paste, but wasn't sure this was the right answer. Seems to work fine.

My Advice

For the HD heat sensor cable, I would recommend taking it off at the mother board. i damaged the connector at the HD end (one pin came loose in connector) and had to carefully replace it. Mother board cable connector is much more robust.

My Problem

My iMac's original 250 GB hard drive failed. Since it was a 2008 model, full repair at a service center would cost more than the computer was worth. Aside from the HD, it was in pristine condition & had an Intel processor that could handle the latest version of OSX (Yosemite), so I felt it still had some life in it. I bought a 2 TB drive from IFIXIT and installed it myself. I also upgraded the RAM while I was at it. I'm happy I did it!

My Fix

The repair went well. The overview video and step by step directions are extremely well done - clear & thorough, with tech notes that point out helpful little things that only a full time computer tech would know.

My Advice

I'm detail oriented by nature. Whenever I follow any kind of written or video instructions, I usually find things that could be presented better. You guys do such an impressive job that I have nothing to say but THANKS!

My Problem

Onboard original equipment drive died. Not yet ready to pay for new computer and didn't want to pay Genius Bar prices for repair.

My Fix

Followed directions, took time and it went just fine.

My Advice

Make sure you have correct Torx sizes in hand. Kind a hassle to have to go track down the correct driver mid repair.

My Problem

Sporadic failure to boot, drive not visible after using TechTool Pro 7 edisk to boot.

My Fix

The repair went very well - no issues whatsoever.

My Advice

Kit, tools and hard drive work great, about 1 1/2 hour effort and everything is great. Loved the video and step by step directions. My exact machine was not on this emails drop down list. It is the 24" emc=2267. Thanks for the great service... Bill

My Problem

HDD on my 7 year old iMac croaked. Guy's in the apple store said not with fixing and sold me a new one. Just for fun I googled replacing a dead hdrive on a Mac and the fixit guide came up + all bits. Invested the $150 just to see if was as easy as it looked.

My Fix

The guide made it look easy and guess what it was. Took about an hour even with major dust extraction. Fired up first time.

My Advice

You may need to create a partition on the drive to see it in the start up utility. Again fix it has a guide. Also need the start up disks that came the iMac I had to install all the way back from 10.5. Took many hours but worth it in the end. runs like a dream. Thank you I fixit!

My Problem

Old media server iMac's internal Hard drive finally dead.

My Fix

Oh my goodness where to I start... First I have never opened a computer period, will I electrocute myself, should I bite the bullet and get a new mac mini instead, have spent all this money on iFixIt self repair - what if I exacerbate the problem.

Well let me tell you, everything went so smooth I thought it was too good to be true. iMac powered up restored from backup.

My Advice

Just iFixit!

My Problem

HD blown beyond repair.

My Fix

Like a breeze. No problem whatsoever following the step-by-step walkthrough. Took me around an hour and a half to replace the part and screw everything back, including a 10 minutes much needed cleaning. Straightforward process, really.

My Advice

Good tools make for a much nicer experience. I appreciated the magnetized screwdrivers.

My Problem

Had to replace the hard drive on 20" imac. There was a SMART failure.

My Fix

The repair was unlike any repair before. In replacing the drive I hit two troublespots both having to do with over-spinning the replacement drive. The first part had to do with reversing the way a connecting cable was placed in the drive. The second had to do with buying the exact brand hard drive that the iMac was originally installed with. Through trial and error, I ended up cracking open the imac about 3 different times before things ended up well. That wasn't so pleasant but got the job done.

My Advice

While documentation for these problems were ultimately there - the documentation could be better. I ended up buying two hard drives to solve the problem and it's not clear to me whether this is a problem with ALL imac or only this particular mac. :(

My Problem

After missing the "free replace harddrive" for this 2009 iMac by one day it finally started making a whining noise after 4.5 years of constant usage.

My Fix

Followed the iFixit manual and everything worked great. Replacing the harddrive were fast and easy.

However, as I assembeled the front plastic screen I noticed a thing looking like a "button" battery (CR?), 4 mm in diameter and 2.35 mm in height on the monitor screen.

Apples Timemachine worked flawlessly for restoring the data on the drive.

My Advice

Have some compressed air on a can to clean the inside of the mac before assembly.
