My Problem

Battery status would fluctuate from 30% to maybe 5% in minutes. Once plugged in it would go right to 30-40%. Battery was only about 14 months old before it started acting up.

My Fix

Easy to change the battery. Apple uses adhesive tape similar to command tape so battery releases without a problem. It took longer to unscrew the 6 screws then it did to replace the battery itself.

My Advice

Pull tape slowly so it doesn't break. If you follow the directions at this site you can't fail. Didn't need the plastic cards to remove battery at all. Once you pull the tape out the battery will fall right out.

My Problem

The 2016 iMac 1TB fusion drive was a bit disappointing speed-wise. I decided to swap the 1TB spinning drive for a 1 TB SSD.

My Fix

Repair went very well without much hassle. The trickiest part was peeling the display off the lower adhesive strip.

My Advice

After initially attaching the display again with new adhesive strips, there was a 1 mm gap between the bottom of the display and the lower bezel. The display settled down after about a day and the gap went away.

After swapping to new drive, some people complain of increased fan noise, maybe due to the new drive not having a temperature sensor. I haven't noticed any extra fan noise. The computer is still silent.

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

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.
