My Problem

mid 2009 MBP - dead in the water. A couple years ago this particular machine one day just stopped. Heard the bong, got to grey apple logo and that was it. PANIC! As I had a gigantic job deadline I literally ran out the door to the nearest Apple store and bought another one, sent my time machine backup to it and was back in business in a couple hours. Years pass. The kid has been begging me for an entree into the walled garden of Apple and I finally remember the dead machine.

My Fix

Couple of google-minutes later I surmise "it's the HDD dummy — &/or the Logic board too, but mostly maybe the HDD.

Ordered up a Crucial 256GB SSD known to work in that machine and these tools. When all had arrived, I placed iPad with the iFixit manual, machine and tools in front of him and said if you want it, fixit. And so he did. Every step was logical and clear. My 12 yr old had no difficulty executing them.

My Advice

The battery connection was the one place where he got too nervous and required help, as it was an extremely tight fit and required much patience to release. Everything else was very straight forward and he had a working laptop with an SSD (which I'd earlier cloned from another machine running Mt.Lion). All the iFixit tools performed perfectly.

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

I decided to change the old 250GB hard drive with a faster 240GB SSD

My Fix

At first i had problems removing the upper case but then all the repairing procedure went well

My Advice

Following the instructions on iFixit website is simple

My Problem

My Macbook Pro began making very loud screeching noises. It sounded as if something was rubbing against something while spinning. Looking at the picture of mac internals, I realized the noise was coming from where the fan is located. I did a hardware diagnostic test to be sure and an error code confirmed the problem was the fan. I've had the computer for 4 years, so I believe the problem was brought on by the age of the computer and dirt & dust getting caught up into it.

My Fix

I rush ordered the parts and tools which arrived promptly on time. I hadn't done anything like this and I was very nervous after reading some comments about people causing more, irreparable damage after opening up their computer. I closely followed the ifixit guide step-by-step and everything went perfectly. The hold fan was very dirty, so much so that the fan couldn't spin. Everything went smooth and the computer worked perfectly when I turned it back on, the whole process only took 20 minutes. It has been a couple weeks with no noise coming from the fan.

My Advice

Follow the guide exactly and you'll be fine. It is an easy process.

I recommend having a can of dust off or something similar to gently spray any dust and dirt out of the computer. I am planning on opening mine up again to do that because I didn't have any with me the first go around.

My Problem

The fan in my MacBook Pro was making an awful sound.

My Fix

Repair was so easy, and the instructions were precise.

My Advice

I was surprised at the amount of dust which collected inside over the years. I would recommend having a can of air to blow out any dust before starting the fan replacement.

My Problem

My macbook pro was very slyolwy

My Fix

Easy,fast

My Problem

HDD-failure

My Fix

Slow tempo about an hour. No problems and no mistakes, thanks to the guide of Brittany McCrigler: iMac Intel 24" EMC 2134 and 2211 Hard Drive Replacement

My Advice

The only thing that I didn't follow, was step 11 "disconnect the LCD cable by pulling down". I disconnected it from the lcd-screen itself.

My Problem

My camera showed something like "burned" spots and some dust specs all around.

My Fix

I sweated a lot :)

I did not remove the battery.

One of the screws that held the battery bracket was broken; luckily the standoff screw underneath got unscrewed and I was able to remove the bracket with the screw attached.

The flash lens was the most difficult part to put back in properly. The cable of the camera does not come already bent, so it takes a bit of trial and error to put it correctly.

Camera works perfectly now, flash too.

When I rebooted it did not find the cellular signal, I put the phone in airplane mode and then back, and it works :)

My Advice

I read all the comments before doing the fix. Among the best ones: do not remove the battery, and "use a ice cube tray to store screws".

My Problem

I had dropped my laptop because my dog jumped on my lap and since then the right speaker sounded blown.

My Fix

I took the afternoon of, poured a glass of cold beer and sat down with the patient. Carefully I followed the instruction on the website through my IPad. Using the tools I bought off this site, I operated on my laptop. I took it apart, realized the right speaker was shattered, replaced it and put it all back together.

My Advice

It all worked out wonderfully. Do not be afraid to try to fix things yourself. Be patient, attentive and read out all the instructions before sitting down to do all the steps. It helps and you won't be surprised when everything is ripped open in front of you.

My Problem

A fist-sized black hole was left in the upper center of the LCD display after an adjustable halogen lamp decided to take a nap on the upper edge of my open laptop while I was preparing dinner.

My Fix

My husband and I replaced the panel over a three day period. He removed the various screws and parts while I read through the directions and organized the parts for reassembly. We used 9 or 10 rectangular magnets from various vacations (Thank you Glacier, Yellowstone, Acadia, Banff, Jasper, Shenandoah, Yosemite, Arches, Rocky Mountain and Grand Teton National Parks) to hold the screws removed at various steps and labeled the magnets with the appropriate step number so we could reassemble with ease. All was going well until I found that the suction cups I tried to use were not strong enough. Amazon Prime to the rescue! We packed up all the pieces/parts in individual zip-lock bags and waited for the UPS man to arrive two days later with the suction cups. The toughest part was removing the glass panel from the LCD. I personally thought the micro-steps in that section of the repair guide to be overkill... I read through them only to find we had already completed most of them based on information in the first step or two. Anyway...the machine is all back together and working wonderfully. I also took the opportunity to replace the battery while we had the whole thing opened up. So simple... not sure why Apple says the consumer shouldn't do the replacement. My only complaint is that I ordered a Torx6 screwdriver, as recommended by the iFixit site when I order the LCD panel, only to find that not one of the Torx head screws we needed to remove were #6. RB went digging and found a Torx8 socket buried with other mystery parts that somehow found their way into his hardware collection. Thank goodness!

My Advice

The magnets worked very well for organizing screws and saved me from depleting my printer cartridges and wasting paper. Removing the glass beginning at the lower right corner of display and working counterclockwise was better for us than starting at the upper right as mentioned in the guide. I already gave my opinion on the glass removal steps. The only frustration my husband mentioned was that consecutive pictures in some locations in the guide showed the MacBookPro in different orientations. He would turn the computer around to match the pic (so he knew he was seeing the instructions and computer clearly) and then have to turn it once again for the next step. Also, I edited the instruction for removing the camera bracket, which was unnecessary if replacing the LCD panel. Don't order a Torx6 for this repair...
