My Problem

I do repairs for the organization I work for. A staff person wasn't able to depress her trackpad, and ended up being a bulging battery.

My Fix

The battery ended up being so bulged the plastic housing for the screw had snapped off. Very simple repair with no issues. Threw in new battery, and the trackpad works like new!

My Advice

None.

My Problem

I could not charge my iPod Touch.

My Fix

The charging port on my iPod Touch was very dirty. I used some of the tools from the Pro Tech ToolKit to get all the dust bunnies out. It worked, but it took a lot of cleaning. I had to get it all out making sure that it was 100% clean. Only then did it start charging again.

My Advice

Make absolutely certain that the device is not working before taking it apart. I was tempted to take apart my iPod Touch, but I'm glad I didn't.

My Problem

My laptop batter no longer was staying charged, so I knew i had to replace the battery. The track pad was also askew, and growing worse by the day.

My Fix

Repair was seamlessly easy. I came to find out that my original battery had been contaminated somehow, and a huge bubble was growing in the center of if. had i not replaced it when i did - and had ifixit not shipped my battery to me practically overnight - that battery could have exploded or otherwise ruined my laptop.

My Advice

Always go through ifixit! i know next to nothing about computers and i was able to easily figure out what battery i needed. And was obviously super happy to receive it quickly, and have easy to use instructions for replacing it.

My Problem

My Macbook Mid 2009 battery was done. If it wasn't plugged into the wall it would only be on for about 2 mins before dying.

My iPhone 4s was a little better, but it still needed to be near a charger throughout the day.

My Fix

The repair was simple and the online guides were easy to follow

My Advice

The tricky part for the Macbook pro battery was making sure you have the correct tool to remove the Y shaped screws

My Problem

Battery life was horrible

My Fix

Worked without issue.

My Advice

Recycle your battery!

My Problem

Five year old battery was no longer functioning well.

My Fix

This is a super easy and fast replacement.

My Advice

Owning the ifixit Pro Tech Toolkit is advised for this job.

My Problem

The battery was showing "service battery" buying was easy, shipping was good. I should have bought a tri-wing screw driver to begin with and it would have been done the same day. Took about 10 minutes from start to finish.

My Fix

Easy.

My Advice

Buy the tri-wing screwdriver right off the bat.

My Problem

I still had the original battery from early 2011 and it was getting up there in cycles.

My Fix

Instructions were very clear which made the repair go very smoothly.

My Advice

Don't over-tighten the tri-wing screws when putting the new battery in. I did this at first and it resulted in the battery being too far in the case to the point where it was butting up against the trackpad, which made clicking difficult. I opened up the case and loosened the tri-wings a bit and that solved the problem.

My Problem

Needed to replace the battery since it would no longer hold a charge longer than 45 minutes.

My Fix

The repair was ridiculously fast due to the great online video tutorial.

My Advice

I also bought the Pro Tech Screwdriver Set which made the repair even more easy. If you have the tools already, then no worries. But I did not and didn't want to deal with purchasing incompatible screwdrivers.

My Problem

original battery needed to be replaced

My Fix

perfectly -- very easy and I am not very mechanically inclined. The pictures and description were easy to follow and very detailed.

My Advice

IFIXIT is a TERRIFIC web site!
