My Problem

I was having issues with my Wifi Dropping a lot. After researching I found out that there was an issue with the Airport/Bluetooth Cable.... so rather then paying Apple to diagnose that I needed a new Airport/Bluetooth Cable and charge me an arm and a leg to repair it... i figure I would try this out first... for $30 and some change... why not!!

My Fix

So I watched the video and read the step by step directions that iFixit had posted on how to change out the Airport/Bluetooth Cable and it took me less then 20 minutes and I was up and running... it has been about 2 weeks since I replaced the cable and everything seems to be working GREAT!!!

My Advice

Watch the video and follow the step by step instructions that iFixit provides and you will have NO issues

My Problem

My Iphone 5s developed a microphone issue after a few months of use. I couldn't be heard when making a phone call unless I used my speakerphone. I tried dealing with my cellphone carrier on a repair or replacement as it was under warranty. They sent me a "like new" replacement however this "new" phone had more problems then my original. They said they had to work out the replacement phone issues with Apple Care next, otherwise there is nothing else they can do for me. To make a long story short, I told them to pound sand and returned the replacement phone and switched back to my iPhone 4s for the time being. One day I decided I really want to get back to my 5s so I looked into repairing it and found this website.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The step by step guide was a big help, wouldn't have tried it without it. The guide was missing a couple steps at the end of the tear down however. There are two more parts that need to be removed from the original lightning connector and headphone jack assembly. There is a small bracket that the home button connection is glued to that has to be removed and installed on the replacement, and the microphone has a small rubber boot around it that has to removed and installed over the replacement microphone. Likely through my research another reviewer point this out so I didn't miss it. Otherwise the repair went just fine with the guide. I was a little mad that the required flat headed screwdriver was mentioned in the guide but not included in the required tools list. I was able to make a screwdriver I had work but I would have liked to have the right size for the job. The only mistakes I had were I got a connector that was next to the battery stuck under the logic board when I was reassembling and didn't notice until I had the board all screwed down. So I had to removed the logic board twice but likely there was no damage. I also had a hard time getting the home button reconnected as the small amount of adhesive wouldn't stick after being removed from the original connector. And I couldn't for the life of me get the securing clip for the home button connection to hook on to the metal hooks on the backside of the connector. I could only snap it in the front which with a little pull pops it out. I spent a good hour trying to hook this clip and ended up just snapping it in the front and putting the phone back together. Not too worried as everything is pretty tight in the phone and its not coming apart again unless something else dies. Overall, I'm glad I decided to purchased the parts and tools and make the repair. Phone is working just like new now.

My Advice

My advice would to purchase all the required tools mentioned in the guide including the flat head screwdriver (2.5mm?). The screws are UNBELIEVABLY small and need these designed magnetic screwdrivers to make it work. Also you will be wise to lay out the steps requiring removal of parts and screws on a piece of paper with some clear or white tape to stick the small parts to so you don't lose them during the repair. Also helps you lay out the screws in order so you don't mix them up when it comes time to reassemble. The website sells a magnetic white board for this purchase if you are only doing the one repair then so some paper and tape work just fine. Also I would advise to just take your time and don't force anything. It took me probably 5 hours from start to finish with 1 hour wasted with trying to hook that clip securing the home button connection. The only thing I wished I had known before I did the repair was about needing the flat head screwdriver, partly my fault as it was mentioned in the guide but wasn't in the tools list so I didn't purchase it, next time I will buy it.

My Problem

Both phones (iPhone 5 and Moto X) had batteries older than 2 years and required frequent charging.

My Fix

Both phones were relatively easy to repair. Your guides and uTube videos were very helpful. Also other uTube videos not from ifixit were informative as well. Be very careful to check the iPhone power switch cable connector, took me 2 additional disassemblies before I got it right. Both repairs went great, saved a ton of money and did not have to switch phones.

My Advice

Take your time and don't force anything. Make sure you are getting a new battery. People are selling used batteries on eBay and Amazon.

My Problem

bought tools and screen

My Fix

tricky but I managed.

My Advice

No. It is all very well explained. I must be done with calm and concentration. Thankyou

My Problem

I was working at Starbucks when my friend Carlos saw me and came over to give me a hug. I knocked a whole bottle of Soylent on my keyboard. Eek.

My Fix

It took about two hours total. I was going extra slowly because I had not worked on a Macbook before. If I should need to do it again, god forbid, it could be an hour or less.

My Advice

The difficulty level is listed as moderate, but I would say it is low if you have built computers in the past. Memories of untangling SATA cables in mini towers and puzzling over new circuit boards that are DOA (Plush carpeting? I admit nothing!) made this feel easy in comparison. I made a point to buy the anti-static wrist strap anyway. Even though my current place has hardwood floors.

There is little agreement on the Internet about the correct method of grounding anti-static wrist straps. This is what I did. Imitate at your own risk:

Macbook adapter is not grounded. So I plugged it into a grounded power strip and plugged that into the wall. I turned the power strip off. Plugged the adapter into the laptop. Clipped the wrist strap to whatever metal laptop component presented itself (not an easy task--had to reposition multiple times).

Everyone made it through ok. Happily using new keyboard.

My Problem

Because my BEAUTIFUL daughter is a clutz!

My Fix

Just like it should, thanks to your how to video!!

My Advice

Be patient and have a work space away from distraction and animals, allow plenty of time for the first one, LOL! the second one goes smoother!

My Problem

Lightning connector developed a short which made charging difficult.

My Fix

Everything went very smoothly until the last step. The guide was perfect, detailing everything you needed to know. Unfortunately, there should have been one final step. There are 3 components that need to be reused from your old Lightning connector assembly. The guide doesn't mention anything about this at all. I was able to figure it out pretty easily because I work on cars for a living - many times without repair information - but I suspect this oversight may trip up quite a few people. I tried to submit an edit but it was rejected. Perhaps I didn't format it right or something. In any case I still think iFixit needs to update this guide, but if they don't I've attached two photos showing the 3 components. Other than that, it was a fairly uneventful repair (expect when I broke a battery adhesive strip).

My Advice

DON'T BREAK THE BATTERY ADHESIVE STRIPS!!! Seriously, take your time and follow the guide EXACTLY! I got the first strip out perfectly in one piece. The second broke almost immediately. I later realized it was because I pulled it at a 45 degree angle, which was perfect for the first one, but the second was supposed to be pulled straight up. Doh! If you do break it, heat the CRAP out of it with a hairdryer (min. 5 minutes with 1800w unit on high) and use the guitar string trick. Forget the dental floss, I don't know why they even mention it. Breaking the 2nd adhesive strip added well over an hour to the job. Don't do it. Take your time and you'll have a much nicer time!

My Problem

Ordered from iFixit a battery because it was not that good but that was not enough so I ordered a iPhone 4S Dock Connector and replaced the and that worked.

The phone is now perfect

My Fix

Everything was very easy with all that excellent repair guides

My Advice

Follow the Repair Guides

My Problem

The two-year old iPhone 5 lost battery capacity and got hot during charging. In addition, its screen began to bulge outwards and got psychedelic background colors. From iFixit stories, we understood that the battery was due for replacement.

My Fix

Following the procedure given by iFixit, the fix was straightforward. All described problems were encountered but overcome. But one comment: The procedure mentioned that the battery was glued to the phone and some careful prying would be required. But you would not imagine how intensely hard our old battery stuck to the phone - most probably due to the glue being dried out from heat during charging. However, with a combination of good prying tools, strong finger muscles, thoughtful carefulness and quite a lot of patience - we struggled with this battery glue for almost an hour before the battery eventually came out - the fix was a success!

My Advice

Be careful and take your time with the old battery. Drag plastic tab, and pry where shown in iFixit procedure, and the battery glue will be defeated, gradually, slowly...!

My Problem

Broken Screen and a pretty faulty front facing camera! Be cautions when taking off a phone case to enjoy that new screen you just replaced... the bare phone is just a *little* less grippy, and you might find yourself back where you started!

My Fix

Pretty alright! A couple of issues, and unfortunately the new screen got cracked in a couple of places, but from what I hear that's almost a given the first time around. Took me about one relatively frustrating hour, mostly dealing with re-shaping the case from bends from impact damage.

My Advice

A few things!

1) never force it. If the screen isn't settling in, IT WONT FIT. There's some pressure needed, but be a good judge. Glass is not flexible.

2) Check the rim for bends and damage. Often when the screen is cracked, the impact was enough to bend the metal rim around it. If it's not almost perfectly shaped, that glass will not fit!

3) when using the opening tools, gently slide the tip up each side - don't jam it in there like a pry bar, you just want a bit of gently wedge pressure moving up to dislodge the screen.

4) Don't be surprised (or discouraged!) if your first screen (or two) breaks. Repairing electronics is an art and takes practice. It might be expensive now, but after you learn a few times, It'll be easy and you'll really start saving money! (and impressing your friends)

5) work on a nice, flat table. avoid edges where you can drop and lose those teensy teensy screws (oops)

6) keep the leftovers! If anything can be salvaged, don't toss it. When you upgrade, keep the old tech around to practice repairs on. As stated before, practice makes perfect! and perfect makes money :)
