I had a family reunion, and a nephew was playing my PS4, got a little excited and pulled the PS4 off of my tv stand. I had the controller connected to the charge cable, won't do that ever again when they use it. My warranty ran out with sony literally a few days before this occurred. I ended up opening it up myself, I found that the motherboard was cracked.
Well, the repair in general was a little crazy, I had to locate another motherboard of the same model. I found one on ebay that was decently priced, only thing wrong with it was that the HDMI port was broken, so I ordered a new port on the side as well. I didn't have soldering equipment so I brought it to a local pc repair shop, they soldered it for me for $5. Then using the guide on the Ifixit site, I took it apart, fixed it all together with the thermal paste and everything, and put it together, and it was good as new!
Be very careful when getting the motherboard from ebay, you may see some which seem fine, but aren't. Normally when they are providing other components with it, somethings wrong. Look for one with a broken HDMI port, that's normally the most easiest to fix, but most people on ebay don't really know that for some reason. If they have to solder, it seems to be beyond them.

My machine was running super poorly after two years.
The guide from Ifixit made it super easy to change everything. Took about ten minutes to take my machine apart and to get it back together with brand new cooling paste. Used compressed air to clean out all the dust.
The screws were screwed too hard by the repair shop which resulted in a broken driver. I learned they need to be opened with a firm pressure down, angled slightly and with a slow and steady twist.
Further, applying the paste properly is essential so you don't conduct electricity from the motherboard to the parts that you apply it, as they conduct power. Just use a small dash in the middle, half the size of a pea, and then screw the heatsinks on. It'll spread it evenly for you.
In the end, my machine was broken from water damage and got sent back to rep. All the parts got changed and it is now functioning perfect.
I fixit sent me a new drive free of charge. Couldn't be more happy with the service from these guys.

My hdd has failed and I had to replace it
As usual, look at iFixit.com ... There was a solution.. I bought the tools.
After 30 minutes, the new HDD was in my iMac, ready to restore my data :)
Don't worry .... it's very simple to do =)

Apple created new screws and you fixed that problem for me
This was a diagnostic mission on a Mid '12 Air, that went well. Parts arrived from you this morning and it is back up and running.

Remplacement du disque dur original 1To par un 2To
Ayant suivi le guide iFixit, tout c'est bien passer.
Seul petit soucis rencontré : Le Décollage de l'écran en partie basse. Une fois soulevé il n'est pas si simple de le décoller. Le passage de la carte plastique pour "couper" la colle existante n'est pas vraiment efficace. J'ai été obligé de mettre un très léger coup de cutter pour couper la colle.
Au recollage de l'écran, le reposer presque en parallèle au support, mais ne poser d'abord que la base de l'écran (attention pas complètement parallèle pour ne pas coller les trois autre cotés avant branchement des nappes de l'écran). En cas d'une repose trop verticale il reste un petit espace entre le verre et l'alu en pied d'écran et donc un léger décalage de l'écran vers le haut après rabattage pour collage complet.

We had an older 21" iMac bite the dust so we purchased a new 27" late 2013 build iMac but due to incompatibiliti
Apple has made it next to impossible to go backwards with the OS and it's been a total pain in the butt!
The process went very well and the directions from iFixIt were spot on! One word of advice... the new iMac is using "flash" storage not an SSD so there was really no need to open the unit.
But the process of cutting it open and sticking it back together isn't difficult at all, so don't be afraid to try it if you want to replace the hard drive on the basic machines that use them.
THE FIX: I used a hard drive dock with a spare drive I had on hand and install OS 10.8.5 on it. Then I booted the new iMac from that hard drive via the usb hard drive dock.
NEXT STEP: I used the Disk Utility app and erased the Mac HD flash storage, and then used my Mountain Lion thumb drive and installed the OS on the Mac's flash storage. The entire process took about 30 mins. and the iMac had zero problems running the older OS.
LAST STEP: I did a migration from the old 21" iMac using a Time Machine backup and "bam" all is right in my graphics world once again.
