My Problem

To replace my 2639 iMac (27" late 2013) HDD with Samsung 850 PRO SSD

My Fix

It went smooth, thanks to iFixit guides, videos, and tools

My Advice

Take your time to plan and prepare for it, handle the screen with extra care, no need to completely remove the left speaker if you plan to replace the HDD; only moving it a little after unscrewing it will do the job.

My Problem

to replace my 27" iMac 1TB HDD with Samsung 850 PRO 512 SSD

My Fix

It went perfect; thanks to iFixit guides and videos

My Advice

take your time to prepare for this, a clean area and quiet place will help a lot. handle the screen with extra care, and there's no actual need to remove the left speaker completely if you just intend to replace the HDD with an SSD

My Problem

My phone would only keep a charge for 2 hours and would go dead. My home button had to be pressed several times to work.

When I saw the ifixit website and how easy the instructions were to repair, I thought I need to try this.

My Fix

The repair went great! The instructions were given step-by-step and were so easy to follow. The tools that I order were very inexpensive and worth the purchase. I now have a phone that will last me a lot longer and I paid a fraction of would it would have cost to do an insurance claim or send it somewhere to be fixed.

My Advice

Watch the instructions carefully before you start the step-by-step process. Make sure the screws that you take out are put on a piece of paper that is labeled as to where you took these screws out. That way you will not get mixed up to which screws go where.

My Problem

Battery became first inaccurate, then slowly wouldn't stay powered on off a charging cord.

My Fix

iSclack made opening the screen really easy, and everything else went smoothly save the elastic strips that holds the battery.

The guide says to cut the black tab between the two white strips, and then to pull them straight up as you move it down the side of the battery.

Well, being elastic strips, they snapped. Had to use the card to pry the battery of. That was slightly harrowing, but it eventually came off. After that, the new battery worked like a charm.

My Advice

Back up your phone before doing the repair. Ensure that is is an ENCRYPTED back up or certain apps etc won't actually be backed up.

My Problem

HDD was failing. Decided to replace it with an SSD.

My Fix

Everything went smoothly in terms of the hard drive replacement in my iMac with one notable exception. I cracked the display while removing it. This was entirely my fault, though. iFixit's tools and tutorials were fantastic. Highly recommend if you're comfortable working on your own system. Just be careful prying up that display!

My Advice

As mentioned above.

My Problem

Peet's Coffee and Apple's DON'T MIX! In short a minor spill took out the power on/off key(button)

My Fix

Excellent... The keyboard cable was the hardest

Plus 3 other videos on the repair

My Problem

Cracked glass on the LCD screen

My Fix

The repair went successful, but had to order another set of adhesive strips because I didn't move the thermal sensor from the old monitor to the new one.

My Advice

Don't forget to check to see if the new lcd screen you had ordered came with thermal sensor attached. If not, you will need to use the old one from the old LCD Screen.

My Problem

Decided to upgrade the Fusion drive to full SSD

My Fix

Piece of cake.

My Advice

Just follow instructions carefully. Use some tape on the bottom of the screen to allow it to be positioned and then hinged up and down for connecting and disconnecting the cables during a trial fit.

My Problem

I bought my iMac with only the platter drive because the SSD options were so expensive. After dealing with the slow drive for a while, I found a 256 gb PCIe hard drive on eBay.

My Fix

The guide was spot on. The only hard part of this repair is the screen removal. The directions are clear though, and the removal went perfect. The rest of the steps are basic, and anyone could do them. In fact, anyone could probably remove the screen. It is just stressful because it feels fragile and it is an expensive piece of electronics.

My Advice

I didn't buy the foam iMac pad to hold up the enclosure with the screen removed. I just laid it down on a soft surface. It worked just fine.

My Problem

8 month old IPhone 6 plus, battery won't hold a charge anymore. From 100% it typically dies within 2 hrs on standby and in about 30min of actual use. Took it to the Apple Store, they refuse to replace the battery under warranty dispite it only being 8months old. They tell me battery is fine and passes all their tests. According to them is has approx 400 cycles on it. Called around to all the local repair shops, no one will replace an iPhone 6/6plus battery, no one even stocks one yet. A few places are willing to replace if I provide the battery. WTF, if I'm going to have to go to the trouble of ordering one on my own ill just replace it myself.

My Fix

Everything went smooth until the battery adhesive straps. First one peeled out no prob. I got cocky and the other two promptly tore. Spent the next 45m swearing and cursing Steve Jobs while digging away at the battery with the supplied plastic cards. Eventually the battery came free, swapped the new one in and sucess, I have a functional iPhone again. Despite Apple's claims otherwise, the OEM battery was pooched, the replacement fixed all my problems and battery life is stellar now. I can use the phone all day no problem.

My Advice

Take your time pulling those adhesive tabs.
