My Problem

Voltage issue with USB port on PC made USB data pin on phone to stop working but charged just fine. Not a problem with wireless adb but while flashing new rom, I mistakenly deleted everything on the phone including the rom zip. I tried everything to get the rom zip on the phone from usb-otb to different cables to battery drains but nothing worked.

My Fix

Having given up, I got a cheap phone. While m7 sat in the closet. Recently, I was cleaning my room and spotted my m7 abandoned it didn't feel right. Decided to get a new m7 usb port and replace the faulty part. Hardest part was taking out the back cover off m7. Replaced the usb and it worked! Finally back from dead.

My Advice

Turns out m7 is really hard to get the back off without damaging the cover so I got $11 back cover replacement. Youtube video on replacing just the usb without removing all the other parts with help of tweezers helped lots. Shipping to Canada is a strange paradox, I want product to arrive fast however if I pay over ~$30USD (~$40CAD) for 2 day fedex shipping, I get charged extra $15CAD by fedex for faster customs passage. And regular delivery takes minimum 1 month and costs ~$15USD (~$20CAD). ifixit needs to update shipping speed and costs to Canada. And oh I got rid of the faulty usb ports on the PC as well, took less than 3 minutes and a Phillips screwdriver.

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

2 shattered screens and 2 underperforming batteries..

My Fix

The first screen took a LONG time.. Mostly because it was my first time in the guts of the iPhone..

Second time went much quicker, and easier..

My Advice

When you are at the step removing screws from the corners of the frame of the iPhone - just before you remove the display, go ahead and remove the headphone jack. Removing the jack makes replacing the corner screw next to it ever so much easier..

I also followed another users advice and used a separate small plastic container for each step of the process where something was removed, I then labelled the container so it was easy to go in reverse order to put back together.. The second screen, I already had labelled containers.

Lastly, get a good magnifying device , preferably mounted on arms,so you can more easily see all the tiny components you are dealing with.

My Problem

I repair electronics for a living. The metal double sided spudger has proven to be the most used tool in my shop for cellular and mobile device screen replacement. When we lost the only one we had, I was sad. So I ordered 2 more.

My Fix

Absolutely terrible. The 2 spudgers I received were thick, non flexible and un-usable. I tried calling ifixit to no avail, they have such a terrible phone system you just get hung up on within 2 minutes and they pretend its not them but it is. I tried emailing sales and support, also to no avail!

My Advice

My advice,do not purchase tools from ifixit. The spudgers WERE nice once upon a time, but now they suck. Support for sales is also entirely non existent in my experience.

Anything sold on ifixit.com can be purchased elsewhere without the markup for the name, nor the hassle of no sales support. Reagrds, Phil May, www.northendelectronics.com

My Problem

I had a broken display in my iPhone 5S

My Fix

It was easy, with the tools that come with the spare part.

My Advice

Check the proper attachment of display cables on the logic board.

My Problem

Dropped the Kindle Fire and broke the front glass panel. Thought that just maybe I could do this myself.

My Fix

Went perfect just took my time and stayed with the procedure step by step. The pictures were great!

My Advice

none

My Problem

After putting a flash drive into my USB port upside down, I quickly realized that the port was done. No big deal, I thought; I have one more. A few days later, I realized that my Macbook Air couldn't play sound. I did some research, learned about the I/O board and figured that I probably messed up whatever is on there that produces sound when I was sticking random objects in the port trying to straighten it out.

My Fix

I followed the repair instructions in the "Macbook Air 11" Mid 2013 I/O Board Replacement Guide" and I'm happy to say that everything is now working.

My Advice

I noticed that some of the parts in the photos were arranged differently in the guide than in my computer. I actually had to removed the battery to get to some other parts that I need to remove in order to successfully complete the repair. The best advice I can give anyone is to take your time and be patient. This was pretty easy and I found the Magnetic Project Mat to be really helpful. Next project....replacing the battery in my 2 year old iPhone 5.

My Problem

The 5400 RPM HD that comes in the new tapered iMac 21.5" is too slow.

My Fix

Picture perfect.

My Advice

The adhesive strips come with a "pizza cutter" iMac opening tool so you should not have to order the iMac opening tool separately.

My Problem

My back panel had been cracked for a while, and the speakers eventually crapped out. But that didn't justify the expense. The charger was slowly working less and less until it basically finally stopped. I had a refurbished phone and I think that's why things went awry so quickly.

I quoted a shop, $50 for just the charging dock. For $80 I can get all the parts and tools to fix all three problems. No brainer.

My Fix

Dissassembly was a bit tricksy as it was my first time working on a phone, but it went off without a hitch.

Reassambly does NOT mean "follow steps in reverse order" unless you remember all the orientations of every part you dissassembled.

There were definitely additional steps in reassembly that I had to look up on youtube, in particular the orientation of the gold pin.

Also the microphone cover wouldn't fit anymore because there was an additional gold part on the charging dock. But the mic still works so who knows.

My Advice

I kept my screws organized by drawing a grid on paper and writing the step and the size of each screw in its individual cell. That helped a LOT.

Also, if you are new to this, do your best to note orientation of the smallest things you wouldn't expect because ifixit doesn't necessarily provide the information.

Youtube videos, somehow, illogically, will be blurry the moments you need to see clarity, and sometimes go off-screen when something intricate is going on. I.e. if you can FIND the job for the model, don't expect it to be professionally produced.

That all being said, fixing something yourself is doable and HIGHLY satisfying, and I couldn't be happier with my choice. Fiero is a powerful and fulfilling emotion.

My Problem

I dropped my phone and I guess I am one of the rare few where the screen doesn't even break but instead started showing black lines. I decided to try this fix instead of spending $125+ at the apple store.

My Fix

The repair was quite easy with the guide.

My Advice

I didn't purchase an iOpener because i didn't see the need to waste the money on something I'd use once. What I did instead was get my iron and heat up a shirt to where it was above warm (i.e. you can hold it in your hand but its hot enough where your palms start to sweat) I applied light pressure to the earpiece, where I would use the iOpener, and slowly pulled the earpiece off. It did take longer to loosen the adhesive but it still worked in the end and I saved whatever the iOpener cost. Also make sure to keep track of screws! I was unlucky in that I lost two screws. I was able to find one of the lost screws but one of those small little guys is still out there in the wilderness that is my workroom.
