My Problem

My son's Macbook battery wouldn't charge, and the green LED on the charger wouldn't light. Swapped it with my battery/charger. No luck! So I ordered the MagSafe board from ifixit.

My Fix

Followed the detailed directions. They are truly a time-saver!

Taking it apart was easy. (But isn't it always?)

Putting it back together was pretty easy, too. AWESOME!

Unfortunately, the part didn't fix the problem.

My Advice

A couple quick tips:

ORGANIZE YOUR SCREWS! I grabbed a big fridge magnet and put the screws on it grouped together and carefully noted where each set came from.

DON'T REMOVE THE KEYBOARD! I just carefully slid it forward about 2" once I popped it out. Gave me access to the MagSage connector without fussing with the delicate keyboard connection.

THANKS MAGNETIC SCREWDRIVER! Don't think I could have put this back together without a magnetized phillips screwdriver bit.

My Problem

MageSafe was pushed into the body of computer ......

My Fix

It was a lot of steps and several very small screws to keep track of but the instructions were right on ......... my only fear was losing the small screws and getting them back in the correct holes ........

My Advice

I put the screws in a small container so I wouldn't lose them ........

My Problem

My charger wouldn't play nice with my laptop even though it was new so I figured it had to be the MagSafe connector.

My Fix

I was really nervous but armed myself with my 00 screwdriver and spudger. My sister provided moral support, comic relief, read me the instructions and held a bright light over my laptop. I'll admit it was a real nail biter but it needn't have been as the instructions were flawless and I DID IT!!! I live hundreds of miles for the closest repair place and my laptop is a real lifeline for me to stay connected with the world. Thanks you ifixit for your excellent work!

My Advice

Relax. The only tricky parts were disconnecting the metal ribbon and then taking out the old device. Just be patient and follow the instructions. Don't overpower it.

My Problem

When my computer was pulled to the floor by dogs tripping over the cord, it fell on the magnetic AC to computer connection. The computer no longer charged; I tried a new AC cord - no luck. My MacBook is 7 years old, so parts were no longer available through Apple.

My Fix

ifixit sent me the correct in-Board part, and the local guy fixed it for me. Can't thank you enough for this company. Good service, good descriptions of the parts, and instructions if I had felt brave enough.

My Advice

This reasonably priced part saved my computer. Advice: Be brave, get the part, and go for it.

My Problem

My laptop's plug was not working properly. After visual inspection, it seemed the power port was the issue. Ordered the part, replaced it, and realized it was the power cable end that was the issue. Resolved ; the replacement part, although replaced for nothing, works as good as factory.

My Fix

Not very well- I had to butcher some screws to take the computer apart. Even used a power drill to drill out some stripped screws. It came back together with a little less issues, and is completely functional. As for the power cable end, I ended up taking that apart (comes in three pieces - magnet, plastic shield and cable with a fitting). Putting it back together by pressing it firmly together fixed the issue for good.

My Advice

Don't try this at home unless you don't mind a bit of esthetic damage.

My Problem

The light on the MagSafe connector was slightly visible and occasionally the computer would not charge. Replacing the connector inside the computer seems to have fixed the issue.

My Fix

Not sure how long it took, but this was not the first time I was opening the Macbook, so it was been there, done that.

My Advice

Very careful with Step 11, this is how I broke the ribbon connecting the keyboard on a previous repair job (something was stuck inside the optical drive).

And, really, you guys have superb guides.

My Problem

For awhile now we have had problems with the MacBook battery not charging. So after the last charger conked out (it would still keep the computer running, just not charging), I decided to try something else. I checked your website, which I'd used before, bought the part and waited for delivery so I could tear it apart.

My Fix

The guide was very helpful and it didn't take long to get the old one out and the new one in. Lots of screws. I was afraid the dog or the kid would knock them off the table never to be seen by human eyes again, but that did not occur and I got it back together. Unfortunately, it didn't fix my problem. Going to try another charger. If that doesn't do it, I'll go to the Apple store and talk to a "Genius".

My Advice

Go for it. What have you got to lose?

My Problem

Macbook wouldn't run on ac power or charge battery and Apple wouldn't fix it because it is "vintage".They sent me to Microcenter saying they could do the repair.Then Microcenter tells me that Apple won't let them fix it and they have to send it to California for $300.00!!!I told them they were were crazy and fixed it myself- for under $30.00 - thanks to ifixit!

My Fix

The repair went perfectly!I've never fixed any electronics in my life and your instructions were perfect down to the last detail and very easy to follow.Nothing went wrong and it worked!

My Advice

Fix it yourself with ifixit! This repair is real easy to do - just follow the great instructions.

My Advice
