My Problem

My mid-2012 unibody MacBook Pro was being throttled, no more RAM, and before throwing it out the window thought I'd try adding the RAM.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly - and I'd never opened my laptop before so wasn't sure. But the guide was clear and it went great.

My Advice

I ordered 2 Phillips head screwdrivers because I had read conflicting advice: #0 and #00. I actually used the #0 as recommended and it worked great.

My Problem

I decided my new Macbook Pro needed a new Solid State Drive. Since I was going to be inside the case anyway I decided to put in a Data Doubler from OWC. A Data Doubler basically is used to replace your optical drive with a hard drive or SSD. The SSD upgrade went off without a hitch. The Data Double not so much. I used the wrong screwdriver to try to get the screws out of the DVD drive and stripped out the heads of two of the screws holding in the drive. I realized I should not have used a screwdriver with replaceable tips. This shank of the screwdriver hits the case of the drive. This causes the screwdriver to be tipped out of the screw head just a little. The screws actually had a little thread locking compound on them that also made the screws hard to remove. This caused me to strip the screws.

My Fix

The repair went really well. I ordered the screw extractor kit from iFixit, it showed up a couple of days later and with a little pressure and the right screw extractor the screws came out with no problem. I now have a Macbook with a 500GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

My Advice

Use the right tool for the job. I know, your father probably told you this a 1000 times when you were helping rebuild the small block Chevy engine in the garage, but it is also true for electronics repairs. The moral of this story is. Listen to your dad when he talks about tools and always look on iFixit when you need the right tool.

Sorry, I didn't take any pictures, but any of the Macbook Pro guides on this site has tons of great pictures.

My Problem

Replaced built in optical drive with 250GB SSD drive. System was running really slow.

My Fix

It went well. Followed instructions and was pretty straight forward. Ran into a few hurdles....The screws can easily fall down into the case, which was very annoying. There is also a cable that has a very sensitive connector and after it had already ripped off, I read that you have to be very careful. Luckily nothing broke off. Putting it back was really tough as well.

My Advice

The only real thing that got me was the fact that no where in the instructions does it say you need to buy the adapter to fit the SSD into. Luckily I purchased one via Amazon and it arrived super fast. iFixIt also has one but it is pricy. I'm sure it's a well made one, but no one will ever see it.

There is also no info on how to ensure that TRIM is enabled. I had to go searching for a tool that did it. Cost me $10 for a simple application.

My Problem

My 13" MacBook stopped booting due to the OS not being found. I tried a friend's extra OS X-installed hard drive with no luck so I assumed that the hard drive cable was to blame.

My Fix

The iFixit repair guide was a lot better than the various YouTube videos I'd looked at. I should have paid a bit closer attention to which size screwdriver to use for which screws, as I ended up stripping one screw a little bit, but overall the process went pretty cleanly.

Unfortunately after the replacement nothing changed. I tried some RAM resets and then booted in Verbose mode only to realize the alternate hard drive had a version of OS X that wasn't supported by my hardware. Whoops. Then after reinstalling the original hard drive I realized that the hard drive was the problem all along.

My Advice

Make sure to try alternative boots and run in verbose mode before determining the cause of the problem. Assumptions can lead you down an unnecessary path. Also, if the hard drive might be the problem, listen really closely. I've heard hard drive clicking before, but I missed it this time (prior to try the repair) and would have caught it with a bit more care.

Getting the spudger and screwdrivers was worth it though, as now I can fix many other things much more easily. In fact I was able to fix my mother's old handheld CD player.

My Problem

I had 2 gigs of RAM and needed more speed for my 2008 Mac desktop. A friend of mine that's a whiz with Macs sent me your link. I ordered 2 2GB RAM chips, printed out your directions for installation and it was a snap.

My Fix

It went without a hitch. It was extremely easy. Thank you!!!!!! Now my computer is fast. It feels like I just purchased a brad new Mac.

My Advice

Go for it.

My Problem

Install the battery

My Fix

Good,but the fraim got scratch

My Advice

Get a repairmen to do it

My Problem

I decided to fix it because it was much more cheaper than buying a new chromebook.

My Fix

It went well but i had a little problem connecting the screen to the laptop. I eventually figured it out.

My Advice

If you have a cracked screen get on ifixit and get some idea on how to fix it yourself instead paying a lot more buying a new laptop.

My Problem

My Ipad Retina had a battery that would last only 2 hours. I was not sure if this was standard so I did nothing for the warranty period. On about the 14th month I tried to get it repaired under warranty, only to be told it was going to cost me $370. That's a smidgen under new price. So I decided to try and replace the battery myself.

My Fix

Not good I smashed the screen. I did get the battery installed OK. I'm in the process of ordering a new screen

My Advice

Take your time on the screen. No matter what be patient. Use the guitar picks like the instructions say. I didn't because I didn't have any and I now have a smashed screen to show for it.

My Problem

Extrem langsames Raid 1 bei defekter Originalfestplatte.

So habe ich den Entschluss gefasst, den Server mit 2 1TB Hybridplatten von Seagate und um weitere 4 GB Ram, also von 2 x 2 auf 2 x 4, aufzurüsten.

My Fix

Zu Empfehlen sind hierzu die iFixit-Anleitungen zum Austausch der Festplatte, des Lüfters und der Speichersteine. Da der Miniserver kein DVD-Laufwerk hat, aber 2 Festplatten, schaut man nach Abheben der Verkleidung direkt auf die erste Festplatte. Benutzt wurden zur Reparatur 2 Thin Putty Knifes, ein Phillips #0 Schraubenzieher und ein wertvoller Spudger, mit dem sich vorsichtig Isolierbänder, Leitungsbänder und Festplattenwärmefühler lösen ließen. Der Festplattenwärmefühler der oberen Festplatte klebt an der Platte und behält auch später noch seine Klebefunktion, wenn man ihn vorsichtig mit dem Spudger abhebelt. Der Fühler der unteren Platte ist Teil des Festplattensteckboards, welches ebenfalls vorsichtig entfernt werden muss. Zum Lösen der Verschraubung der unteren Festplatte muss auch der Lüfter entfernt werden, um alle Festplattenschrauben zu erreichen. Bei allen Manipulationen bitte darauf achten, dass die Antennenkabel, vor allem beim Zusammenbau, nirgendwo gequetscht werden.

Bis auf den erfolgreichen Einbau der beiden 4GB Speicherelemente, hat alles sehr gut funktioniert. Jedoch weigert sich mein Miniserver zu booten, sobald beide 4GB Speichersteine eingebaut sind. Dieses Problem wird zur Zeit noch diskutiert. Bisher sieht es wohl so aus, dass auch die iFixit-Speicherelemente im konkreten Fall nicht kompatibel sind. Ein erneuter Versuch mit immer wieder empfohlenen RAMs von Crucial wird folgen. Ein in diesem Zusammenhang empfohlenes EFI-Update auf die Version 1.2 geht ins Leere, da die letzte EFI-Version des besagten Servers bereits höherwertiger als 1.2 ist und damit grundsätzlich wohl bereits 8 GB RAM ermöglicht.

Wir werden sehen!

Auf jeden Fall hat es mir Spaß gemacht, das Gerät mal komplett zu zerlegen. Außerdem konnte es so auch einmal mittels eines weichen Pinsels von allem Staub befreit werden. Die neuen Festplatten von WD haben eine Betriebstemperatur von 37 bis 46 °C, je nach Auslastung und arbeiten natürlich erheblich schneller. Die alten, m.E. minderwertigen, Originalplatten von Hitachi backten regelmäßig um die 60 °C, was wohl auch zum Abrauchen geführt haben dürfte.

Bei allen Manipulationen sind dünne Gummihandschuhe, wie sie in der Medizin üblich sind, sehr hilfreich, um elektrostatische Entladungen zu vermeiden, wodurch die Elektronikelemente Schaden nehmen können.

My Advice

Nur Mut!

Nicht gleich alles zur teueren Reparatur geben oder gar wegwerfen!

My Problem

I have a MacBook Core 2 duo A1181 black case MacBook. After checking online, I found iFixit, described the problem and determined it was likely the inverter cable or the display data cable.

My Fix

Many thanks to Matt Barnes of tech support who helped me pinpoint the problem - the inverter cable. Ordered that plus a spudger & a Phillips #0 screwdriver. With a tech minded friend, we fixed it in about 2+ hours. Your repair guides and photos were a huge help and without them the repair would have been really difficult.

My Advice

Take your time! Read the directions! Know what part goes back where. This is particularly true with fasteners. (they run away, you know!) In my case, there were many of them and some really small and easy to lose.
