My Problem

A friend of mine has young children that were playing on their friends iPad and, after some elevated excitement, managed to drop the iPad. The bottom corner hit the ground and the digitizer shattered.

My Fix

The repair was initially difficult with the standard tools recommended. The plastic tools bend too easily with the shattered glass. After reading some tips from other users, I decided to give an exacto knife (slightly blunted) a go instead and thankfully it made a world of difference.

The iOpener worked well for me and the childrens friends are happy with the high quality product that iFixit provided.

My Advice

If the glass is severely shattered, use an exacto knife to pry out the glass, the blade helps cut through stubborn adhesive too. The glass pieces shoot off everywhere so I highly recommend taping up the glass first and using eye protection. Make sure there is no glass residue or chips on the LCD or surrounding the LCD as it will scratch and possibly burst the LCD if it gets trapped under the new digitizer.

My Problem

battery time was down to 15 min

My Fix

repair was done without any problems. Took about 10 min

My Advice

My Problem

My sister had a fire in her apartment building, and her apartment was damaged by all the water that was used to put out the fire. Many things were lost, but thankfully her iPad still showed some signs of life. However, it did't seem like it was able to hold a charge, it was power-cycling on it's own, and the touch screen was not responding to touch. In addition, it was not recently backed up to iCloud or her Macbook. So I took it upon myself to attempt to see if anything could be done by opening it up and inspect if anything could be done to get her data off.

My Fix

Going slow, doing the research, ordering the parts, and taking it one step at a time using the online tutorial from iFixIt.com, the iPad 3 was able to be opened up, exactly how it was described. Detached the touch-screen interface and it appeared a piece of dust/corrosion was released, too. Continued to take the iPad apart and found some corrosion in/around the Logic board where the docking connector attaches which was cleaned with a damp q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Then when the alcohol was dry, took scotch tap wrapped around the finger, dabbed the components with the sticky side to collect any loose q-tip cotton strands. Verified all was removed, by holding it against a light, before re-seating the logic board back in the iPad. Re-assembled the rest of the iPad, and attempted charging and powering up. It didn't seem like it was able to hold a charge, but the touch screen functionality returned. It occasionally still produced a Kernel Panic, but with patience and persistence, I thankfully was able to not only get a local backup to her new Macbook, but I was able to verify that I successfully had a complete backup to iCloud. She now is able to acquire a new iPad, and should be able to continue working once restored from the backups. In addition, I will have an iPad to fix up on my own - should I find I have the time to tinker around.

My Advice

Take your time, follow the instructions, trust in the tutorial and the equipment, and acquire the proper tools from here, They came in less time than they initially had for the delivery day, and it was very helpful to have all the necessary tools at hand.

My Problem

When I got the dreaded "flashing ?", I thought it was the Hard Drive and replaced the drive. That didn't fix the problem, so I assumed it was most likely the cable and ordered it from iFixit. To make the install a bit easier, I got the cable with the IR sensor/sleep LED bracket already attached. I also added electrical tape over and under the new cable to protect it.

My Fix

The repair was easy and went very well, and best of all, it fixed the problem. I booted the computer up in OS X Internet Recovery mode and restored the system. It's working fine.

My Advice

I'm a 73-year-old women. If I can do this, anyone can. Read the instructions, watch the videos, and just do it

My Problem

The old battery had swollen enough to push on the trackpad.

My Fix

The repair went exactly as advertised!

My Advice

Because the old battery was swollen, it pushed against the bottom case panel with enough force to throw the tiny screws some distance as I loosened them! If your old battery is swollen, take care to apply some pressure to the bottom panel and contain the screw you're removing until you've completely removed the screw.

My Problem

Headphones were cutting in and out

My Fix

The repair was 100% successful. The ipod classic is a real bugger to get apart. (impossible without these instructions and tools) it took longer than we figured. However, since we had the tools and instructions as to how it comes apart and how you do it, we didn't give up. Knowing through pictures what to expect and where you might encounter problems made the process easier because you know you are doing it correctly, it just might take some time. Spending a total of $60 to repair instead of $225 to replace it makes you feel really good about the time and effort and savings. the ipod classic is still the killer in music storage. It was well worth this minor investment. if your eyesight isn't so good, you might want a lighted magnifying glass.

My Advice

The instructions and pictures are really well laid out. Don't get frustrated, just follow the pictures and be prepared to take your time. This is not a fast process so don't try to go fast.

My Problem

Shatter kindle Fire I, screen.

My Fix

Struggled with the phillips screw driver #00 that was with the kit. it was not the right size, i should get my money back but not worth the hassle to get it refunded. fortunately i had a screw driver that worked.

My Advice

had to look for a video that didn't include melting the glue off the screen, since my purchase had the screen already glued to the outer shell. This is very good option.

My Problem

1/3rd the price of visiting the Apple store.

My Fix

Your online videos show how to fix a 'perfect' screen that has no cracks at all. In reality, it's MUCH more difficult than what is demonstrated in your guides. My iPad was shattered into a million tiny shards. Those little guitar picks were helpful, but not strong enough to pry up the tiny little silvers of glass around the edges. I ended up using a small flat bladed screwdriver around the edge and a utility knife to scrape the edges free of all the glue and glass. I did use the iOpener magic tube of heat application to soften the glue which helped.

I did manage to get all of the glass and glue removed, then followed the procedure for removing the cables, cleaning the LCD, and then reassembling the replacement screen.

It works great now! Much better than looking through thousands of cracks in the screen.

My Advice

Yes, wear eye protection!! When you're bent over trying to pry off shattered, slivered glass, it will pop/fly up and get in your eyes. Protect them!!

My Problem

One day my MacBook Pro started rattling very loudly whenever the fans came on. It was very annoying and got in the way of my work.

My Fix

It took me about a half hour to complete the repair, except that I had to run out to get a new screwdriver in the middle of the repair. The repair described in the manuals said I would need a phillips screwdriver. But the screws that held down the fans in my MacBook Pro were actually a very small Torx screw (a star hole in the head). I had to get one since it was a very unusual screwdriver to have. Once I had that, the repair went very smoothly after that.

My Advice

Check to make sure which screws are actually holding down the fans - Torx or Phillips and get the right screwdriver.

My Problem

My mac is perfect for what I use it for, want it to last longer so I figure replace the hard drive as my mac is 6 years old

My Fix

The mechanical part was easy, especially with the available guides.

My Advice

Use the proper tool for the job, whats great is ifixit has kits that come with tools
