My Problem

I was trying to add a new ssd to my mac mini late 2014

My Fix

With TR6 I was able to manage the ssd repair/replacement with absolutely no issues. It took about 45 minutes for the entire repair.

My Advice

The only other tool you need is the motherboardremoval tool which I purchased from ifixit and it worked awesome.

My Problem

Price to get the part and do it yourself was 1/2 the price versus sending in to the company without warranty.

My Fix

With the online walk through for ifixit to repair the console gave enough information to help with the repair.

My Advice

Good prices, fast shipping and great walkthroughs.

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

Upgrading a 2014 Mac mini to SSD

My Fix

Went fairly smoothly after watching several videos many times, i gathered the courage to upgrade a hard drive that was going very slow. Overall, it went well with very minor bumps along the way (clip popped out etc...).

My Advice

You will never know unless you do. Having the correct tools also mitigates screwing up.

My Problem

System bottleneck was the 5400 RPM hard drive.

My Fix

Everything went very smoothly, no issues at all.

My Advice

My Mini was the single 1TB SATA model. For this upgrade I also purchased a new Apple drive sled (elsewhere) that included the Apple PCIe connector and cable required to mount an Apple PCIe drive in the future. Thus, there were a few extra steps added to my repair but nothing major. I'm considering adding a fast 1TB PCIe next time I open the machine. Also, I'm glad I had the logic board removal tool as I think I would have damaged the board without it.

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

I bought my iMac with only the platter drive because the SSD options were so expensive. After dealing with the slow drive for a while, I found a 256 gb PCIe hard drive on eBay.

My Fix

The guide was spot on. The only hard part of this repair is the screen removal. The directions are clear though, and the removal went perfect. The rest of the steps are basic, and anyone could do them. In fact, anyone could probably remove the screen. It is just stressful because it feels fragile and it is an expensive piece of electronics.

My Advice

I didn't buy the foam iMac pad to hold up the enclosure with the screen removed. I just laid it down on a soft surface. It worked just fine.

My Problem

Bought a higher-end 2010 iMac off a friend who was moving and didn't want to take it with him. My 2011 MacBook Pro wasn't keeping up with the few games I wanted to play via BootCamp (Skyrim, Cities: Skylines, Diablo, etc.), so I figured the better specs on the iMac would help keep me from needing/wanting to buy a new computer in the next twoish years. I knew that it was starting to experience some artifacting and kernel panicking due to the video card starting to go out, but for $250, I wasn't going to say "no"! I figured I'd be able to repair it myself when the time came it was unusable. So, when it did finally go, I found a video card on eBay for $200 and sat down to replace it.

My Fix

The repair went really well, overall! I used iFixIt's guide to remove the front glass panel and then the display panel so I could get at the video card (found here: iMac Intel 27" EMC 2390 Display Replacement). I then used this guide from teut986 (found here: iMac Intel 27" EMC 2309 or 2374 Graphics Card Replacement) to walk through the work of taking out the other innards needed to access and replace the video card. I was a little intimidated by something like the iMac. I'd only taken Apple's laptops apart before and I had never had to go as deep into them as I did the iMac. That said, though, overall the process was really, really easy. Overall, I'd say it took 60-90 minutes, but half of that was getting REALLY frustrated trying to put the GPU heat sensor cable plugged back into the man logic board. It's really, really small, has to be aligned a specific way, and goes in on the back side of the board, in the tightest spot possible with very little room for maneuvering. But, that's the only difficult part. Everything else was really straightforward and easy-to-do!

My Advice

1) Maybe get some tweezers to help with the GPU sensor cable. The pair I had didn't really help too much, but you might have some worth a %#*@ to try out. I finally ended up getting it by sheer blind luck and a weird "from behind" angle where I had to do it by-feel as I couldn't see anything.

2) Set up a space with something LINT-FREE to set the panel glass and display panel on and then cover them both immediately with more LINT-FREE material. I used newspapers and it worked pretty well.

3) Do not let dust get between the glass and the display panel. You will think "I can ignore that. It's not a big deal" for about 10 minutes until it starts to drive you crazy and you're opening it back up to get the canned air and such in there to fetch it out.

4) Consider wearing some gloves while handling the glass and display. You don't want fingerprints on the inside (see 3)

5) An empty, dry, ice tray works REALLY well for holding and keeping all those screws organized

My Problem

My PS4 kept turning off in the middle of playing game and i did not want to send it to Sony for service.

My Fix

The repair was super simple. Following Ifixit's guide i was able to get the system back up and running in 10 minutes.

My Advice

Because the screws are really small, make sure to keep them all together.
