My Problem

LCD failed on a late 2006 17" white intel iMac. The iMac wasn't repaired, but got a working hard drive from it.

My Fix

I was originally going to try and fix my mother's old late 2006 white 17" iMac, which had a failing LCD with vertical lines from the heating problem those were known for. Since she didn't buy her macbook air until 2014, it was really too late to look for a new panel and if i had found a used one chances were it was going to cost more then it was worth. So I decided to try to disconnect the internal display and just use the imac with an external display. This wouldn't work, it kept freezing on boot or had no desktop with a blank screen..

I decided to then buy a t10 from ifixit to get the LCD out and then rescue the hard drive since it was still good. I already have a multi bit set but the handle isn't long enough for deep screws.

So the bottom line is, I got a working 160 GB drive i can use for something and the imac has been scrapped. I got a late 2013 macbook pro 13" the same time of year my mom upgraded to the macbook air from the imac. So i have a much more current and working mac.

My Advice

I have a computer repair background, but mostly desktops so old macs and general PCs. the all in one macs make me nervous.

My Problem

The Macbook had a strange whirring noise all the time when it was on. It was getting louder day by day, so it was obvious that this problem was not going away.

My Fix

Opened computer, confirmed that the left fan was defective and ordered a new one from iFixit.

Ordered a new one. The one I got was at least free from dust, but somehow felt like it had been handled more than the original Apple fan I was replacing.

My Advice

There are directions from Apple, about how to tighten the screws in the lid on the bottom of the MacBook Pro. If done improperly, the computer might wobble on your desk. Directions are here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202450 and the stuff you need is section 12.

My Problem

Failed hard drive in an iMac. Apple doesn't make it exceptionally easy to replace it, but it was worth doing.

My Fix

The ifixit kit had everything I needed plus clear step-by-step guidance on performing the replacement. Worked a treat!

My Advice

For putting the screen back on, it is better to have an extra pair of hands to help position it.

My Problem

Die HDD war zu langsam, also musste die SSD rein

My Fix

mit den richtigen Werkzeugen und der genauen Anleitung und dem passenden Neuteilen von iFixit, kein Problem. 30 Minuten war es erledigt.

My Advice

Unbedingt die Displayarretierung aus Schaumstoff kaufen, hab mich geärgert diese nicht mitgekauftt zu haben. Das macht es nochmal einfacher.

My Problem

My hard drive had completely crashed, needed to replace.

My Fix

It was quick and easy, other than one hiccup in that my drive was a Seagate and I had ordered a Western Digital accidentally. However, iFixit was great about sending me the right drive, and I have sent back the prior one.

My Advice

It appears some people have problems with the temperature sensor. I found that by properly marking the wires, I had no issue reinstalling the heat sensor cable and having no issues with the fan. Again, felt the whole process was very easy and quick.

Also, to restore the drive with Mac OS X, luckily had been regularly backing up with Time Machine to a NAS, and so it was really easy to restore from a time machine image.

My Problem

Replaced built in optical drive with 250GB SSD drive. System was running really slow.

My Fix

It went well. Followed instructions and was pretty straight forward. Ran into a few hurdles....The screws can easily fall down into the case, which was very annoying. There is also a cable that has a very sensitive connector and after it had already ripped off, I read that you have to be very careful. Luckily nothing broke off. Putting it back was really tough as well.

My Advice

The only real thing that got me was the fact that no where in the instructions does it say you need to buy the adapter to fit the SSD into. Luckily I purchased one via Amazon and it arrived super fast. iFixIt also has one but it is pricy. I'm sure it's a well made one, but no one will ever see it.

There is also no info on how to ensure that TRIM is enabled. I had to go searching for a tool that did it. Cost me $10 for a simple application.

My Problem

The 1TB hard drive crashed and I reformatted and restored it but then it crashed again about a day or two later.

My Fix

The hard drive replacement was a breeze. It took about 1hour and after formatting the new drive and loading OS X Yosemite all I had to do was restore my files from my backup USB drive. The free hard drive replacement guide was easy to follow. Also it was a nice upgrade from my original 1TB drive to a 2TB. Over all I am extremely satisfied with how everything went.

My Advice

The only issue I encountered was after I completed the install my drive fan was running at max speed. Got on the web and found an app called iStat Menus. This app had a menu that enabled me to control the fan speed with no problem.

My Problem

My iMac 27" I7 fully loaded audio production tool suddenly died. It would not power up at all and I could hold the power button down and nothing happened. I tried different outlets and power cables just in case. After a few moments of panic started to look online and do some research. I found out that my iMac was a 2011 model that was known to have power issues and a trickling effect of multiple components failing one after the other. I was really worried at that point, and thought it would have to be replaced. I bought it used, and it did not have apple care. I am an experienced computer technician but have rarely ever had to repair any of my Macs, so this was a little troublesome. I found the Ifixit site and began to read up on the failure. I felt it had to be a power issue since nothing happens when you pressed the power button and I found the parts and instructions for replacing the power supply inside the iMac. I ordered the parts and tools and crossed my fingers.

My Fix

The instructions were spot on and fabulous! I had the old power supply out in about 20 minutes and that included reading and rereading the instructions multiple times to be sure I was doing the correct steps. I compared the power supplies once I got the old one out and was a little concerned because they didn't match correctly other than the shape. Coming from a PC world, not having matching parts can cause imminent doom when you power up. But after putting it all back together again, plugging it in, and then crossing my fingers... I pressed the power button. That wonderful familiar sound of the drives spinning up and apple boot noise sounded like music to my ears. It is alive again and kicking.

My Advice

My advice is.... if your iMac won't power up and you don't have any warranty available to have apple fix it, give this a shot. The videos are simple and straight forward, the instructions on pdf are the same, and the parts just work.

My Problem

We run a small IT company in Anchorage, Alaska and are also a sponsor/presenter/exhibitor of an upcoming conference. Our 27" iMac is to be used as part of our booth for displaying some of our promotional videos, etc. One problem: it wouldn't boot up. Not a bong, beep, or whir.

Although much of our business deals with managing Windows-based networks, we've worked with Mac's before, too. From experience, the best place to start in the teardown of any clean-frame, sealed device is the Internet. I'm so glad I found IFIXIT in my search!

My Fix

Using the IFIXIT guide, in less than 20 minutes we had the display out of this case and could look for the cause of its failure to start. All in all, the iMac looked pretty good inside with all circuit boards showing no sign of problems--except one: the power supply. It showed a "ghosting", almost a light dusting or frosting of a light discoloration on the PCB that faced us. I was pretty sure we nailed it as the problem, given the lack of any sign of life when attempting to power up and that none of the other PCB's showed anything like this discoloration.

When we tore into the iMac, we were 10 days away from the start of the conference, so we looked locally in Anchorage for a power supply. The closest we could get was a quote for considerably higher (almost double) what I'd seen w IFIXit. So we took a chance w IFIXIT to order the part and get it here on time.

Our order went in last Monday and by Wednesday we had the power supply in hand. Another 30 minutes and we had the system put back together and booting up!

I'm sorry I don't have any pictures, yet I'm not sorry about the results. We received this power supply at an excellent price and within 2 days of order--and our ability to use this system at the conference won't be hindered in the least. Thank you, IFIXIT!

My Advice

The one area where I approached this dis-assembly different was the order in which the old power supply was removed (and put back in). Attempting to remove the connector before removing the 4 screws was futile.

I disconnected the AC power clip first, then removed the 4 screws (putting them in 3 different containers w labels), and then was able to unclip and separate the connector from the board.

My Problem

Computer completely dead as in no visible signs of life.

My Fix

Replaced the power supply. Followed the instructions in the repair guide to the T. If "to the T" means mostly. Took about an hour and 2 Coronas.

My Advice

It gets easier after the second Corona.
