My Problem

I kept this computer because it had the wonderful 17" monitor that I loved for watching movies. But the once mighty 200 GB hard drive was another story. I had gotten used to an external drive for the iTunes and movies directory but I discovered that the moment I used the computer without the external drive the iTunes directory moved itself back to the local drive. I'd move it back and try to remember not to do it again. Eventually this and other things got inconvenient but I assumed that replacing the drive was going to require an expensive professional intervention or my taking a chance with my own personal repair inexperience. I hesitated forever until one day the drive failed and I decided I had nothing to lose.

My Fix

The repair went astonishingly well. Absolutely smoothly, exactly as the guide showed. I thought it was going to be like trying to do surgery on a cat, having seen the complex, tightly layered spaghetti/origami world of mac electronics in tear-down pictures. I had assumed it would be way to easy to twist, bend, tear, or break something in all of that. Instead it was easier than following a cooking recipe. It was mostly removing and replacing screws. Without the pictorial guide, though, and the correct tools I got through iFixit I wouldn't have had a chance on my own. I wouldn't have even known that there was something called a Torx screw, what size screws these were, or how to find any of that out. So really, the guide and the tools were 99% of what was needed. My job was the easy part.

My Advice

I would suggest reading the notes and comments people add over time at the bottom of the guide. There can be small variations between the same model devices. There are also little details that some people ran into problems with that their comments help avoid, things you'd only know by already having bent something or pulled something the wrong way. Or even suggestions that allow you to leave a connector in during the repair rather than completely pulling it out and then having to figure out how to get it back in. I added a particular method that may or may not be needed: I have often found that screws, after many years in a particular location, are not as interchangeable as when things are first being assembled. So I carefully put the screws into rows that matched the images in the guide and taped them in that position so I could replace them in the exact location they came from.

My Problem

The fan started to be noisy and quite annoying.

Hoping noisy sound would just go away bit did not, LOL.

My Fix

The process went well except for one nasty screw that won't unscrew easily.

And by the way, the Phillips #00 screwdriver you sent didn't work well and did not fit the screws... So I had to get a better one.

The DIY guide you provided just nailed it!

My Advice

Get an extra Phillips #00 screwdriver on hand to make sure.

Follow every instruction in the guide to the letter and everything will be fine!

Work on top of white cloth, so no jumping around of screws as you take them off the laptop. And you can easily see the screws on the cloth before taping them together. I did not use a white cloth so i lost a small one.

I had every screw taped and labeled per step so no mix up happened as I backtracked to reseal the MacBook.

My Problem

had to put in a new hard drive. got quoted $350 for a repair shop to do the job. Yikes! Ordered from ifixit, went through the online tutorial, and finished in less than an hour! total cost was less than $90.

My Fix

perfectly! your "how to" guides rock! I got it done in less than an hour, and saved myself $260.

My Advice

I will definitely do my research on repairing things in the future! was so simple AND cost effective with you guys!

My Problem

Fully dead desktop computer. (Perhaps only "mostly dead").

My Fix

I watched the video of the repair a couple of times so I would feel comfortable taking this machine apart, then started the repair. I have to say, this was perfectly accurate for my machine, not just general advice! This was by far the best experience of this kind I have had. Thank you for your careful attention to the details that an untrained person might not catch. Very good tools, and the part fit just right. It fired up on the first try and this gave my older iMac some extended life for sure. Keep this up! I'll be back for more repair advice and parts in the future.

My Advice

Trust this company, they're first class folks.

My Problem

I've had my Macbook Pro for a few years now and whilst nothing was wrong with it apart from being sluggish over the years, I decided to refurbish it over purchasing a new one. Finding the right replacement RAM and Hard Drive to suit my Macbook was relatively easy on the iFixit website and they have the right tools, which makes repairs or upgrades so much more efficient.

My Fix

The upgrade parts and tools from iFixit arrived within 10 days to Fiji and with the online downloadable guides from the iFixit website, everything was too easy. I think I was done in 15 mins. This is my second DIY with iFixit without any issues...Awesome.

My Advice

I would only suggest you get every detail right with whatever you are trying to fix or replace before you order parts and everything should be ok.

My Problem

Battery Replacement in 3rd Generation iPod

My Fix

Replaced the battery with no issue and the tools worked great. The batter wires were a little longer so they wouldn't thread around the logic board. I encountered two additional issues after replacing the battery. 1. The pins for the headphone jack pulled out of the plug and were bent. Make sure you are very careful when opening the case!! 2. When I tried to charge the battery, the iPod would not recognize the plug and the battery did not change. I guess one problem down and now two more to go!

My Advice

when opening the case, if easier, you can work the small opener around the opposite direction from the instructions. Worked easier for me.

My Problem

La batteria era arrivata a oltre 400 cicli e richiedeva assistenza, durava poco e il mac si spegneva all'improvviso.

My Fix

Ci vuole un attimo a cambiare la batteria. Questa nuova funziona molto bene.

My Advice

Cambiare la batteria è davvero facile.

My Problem

I always try to fix things myself, and my wifes laptop screen was not going to be an exception.

My Fix

Easy! Simple! Step by step instructions that even a monkey can learn to follow. This was my first time ever working on electronics, so it was a bit intimidating at first, but very easy. The parts i ordered were in excellent condition and beautifully wrapped.

My Advice

Go for it! Order your stuff and do it yourself with these instructions!

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.
