My Problem

The computer was overheating pretty bad and it was hard to watch video or even play a simple game without the computer shutting off.

My Fix

It went really well. The tools made the whole process go really smoothly.

My Advice

I recommend taking your time, research the job before you start doing it, lay out all your tools, and feel prepared about what you are about to do. Made the process really easy and only ran into one problem that was easy to fix. I forgot to plug one thing in which caused an error but problem solving helped me find what the problem was. So take your time and most of all - have fun!

My Problem

A fonte do PS4 queimou apesar de estar conectada a um estabilizador. Acreditava ser uma atualização da Sony porém com uma chave p/ teste de corrente elétrica constatei que a energia não estava chegando aos conectores.

My Fix

Pelo vídeo do IFIX disponível no YouTube verifiquei como ocorria o reparo. Simples, rápido e sem traumas.

My Advice

Verificar qual o modelo da sua fonte: ADP-240AR, etc.

My Problem

Old original 4S battery

My Fix

really easy

My Advice

to buy it

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

Replace logic board; replace HDD with SSD; move HDD to optical bay; upgrade RAM.

My Fix

All in all, everything went well. Considering that this was my first repair ever, it took me much longer (4-6 hours) than indicated (40-60 mins). Also, during the repair I had to watch a couple of video tutorials on YouTube, because sometimes the guides alone weren't sufficient.

My Advice

To anyone who's going to do this repair, make sure you also get a 5.5 mm Phillips screwdriver. During the repair I came across a step which required this particular screwdriver, but I didn't have one since it wasn't mentioned on the list of required tools of the logic board replacement guide.

Furthermore, there is a Phillips #1 Screwdriver listed as a required tool for this repair, but I didn't use it since I managed to carry out that particular step using a Phillips #00 Screwdriver instead.

Also, at the end of the logic board replacement guide it says: "To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order". This is slightly misleading, simply because in doing so you would omit a very important step, namely to apply new thermal paste first. Therefore, I would advise to either include or refer to the 'Applying Thermal Paste' guide at the end of the logic board replacement guide.

My Problem

iMac Intel 24" Hard Drive Replacement. Hard drive went TU while I was using the computer.

My Fix

Repair was complicated with a lot of steps but not difficult, tools recommended and replacement drive were exactly right. Were in our 60's and got bored after supper the day the parts arrived. It took about 2 hours but I'm old, recovering from a stroke and kinda slow.

My Advice

Do it. Just take your time and follow the excellent instructions on line. While you have it on its back and helpless upgrade the RAM too. This saved me a bunch in repair bill or a new computer.

My Problem

After 7 years of trusty service my iMac's hard drive flat-lined. I considered going to a repair service but after some web searching I found the ifixit web site and decided to try my chances at replacing the drive myself. (For $150 less why not right?)

My Fix

Bottom line: iMac 2210 had a Western Digital 320GB drive that I replaced with a new WD 1TB drive. I ordered the ifixit repair kit and watched the easy to follow instructional video. These guys know what they are doing because I was able to replace the drive with no real hiccups. Great job with your how to videos and narratives guys. Keep it up!

My Advice

Get yourself the main kit from ifixit's site and follow the video / guides patiently. It will all work out in the end.

My Problem

too expensive to send to Toshiba. Decided it would be a simple procedure to do it myself - with the right tools

My Fix

Very well. researched procedure on internet and replaced battery very easily

My Advice

Do lots of research before attempting repair. Most hardware issues then become easy to fix.

My Problem

My buddy sold me his PS3 cheep because his kids jammed stuff into the Bluray player and it wouldn't work.

My Fix

The repair was much more simple than I thought it would be. But I just followed the instructions and used the tools I bought from IFIXIT and it was not to bad. Getting to and removing the player took me about 20 minutes. I had to look on the internet to find out how to get into the Bluray player though. I didn't see instructions for that. I took the top off of the bluray player and found a PSP disc and 2 puzzle pieces inside. I removed the objects, put everything back together and now I have a working PS3 slim, 2 controllers, 1 wand and camera that cost me 80 bucks.

My Advice

Offer instructions on how to open PS3 bluray players.

My Problem

The hard drive in my Early 2008 iMac 20" (EMC 2210) was throwing all kinds of S.M.A.R.T. errors about and was, in general, acting very strange. Ultimately, I knew what had to be done: follow the iFixit Repair guide, gather the necessary parts / tools and set to work.

My Fix

All-in-all, the repair took about an hour... and that's because I was going SUPER slow as to be meticulous: using Styrofoam coffee cups (labeled with a Sharpie as to what type of screws they were and which step from the guide they came from) to hold screws as I removed them. I followed the guide to the dot... and it was super helpful.

My Advice

The only thing that threw me was Step 1... I purchased the recommended Phillips #1 screwdriver, but it definitely did not fit the Phillips screw on the access door. Had to bust out the Phillips bit on my Leatherman to loosen the Phillips screw. Not a horrible thing... I now have a handy-dandy Phillips #1 screwdriver... just not sure why it didn't fit the screw it was outlined for? Perhaps my access door is weird... thanks Apple!

Also, the repair guide (in Step 14) suggests that releasing the hard drive bracket "requires a substantial amount of force". Again, perhaps my iMac is special... but it did not require a ton of force. Just saying... take it easy and hopefully you won't Hulk-smash your iMac in the process.

TAKE EXTREME CARE in handling the glass panel and display panel. The repair guide was not kidding that any kind of dust / finger prints / crud you don't remove will show up in-between the glass panel and display panel once everything is back together. I used a lint-free cloth and a can of air to make sure everything was neat and clean before reassembly. While performing the repair, make EXTRA sure you don't touch the under-side of the glass panel or the front of the display panel... this will make for less cleaning and a speedy reassembly.
