Words are powerful—and Jimmy’s got an extensive vocabulary: slide, cut, twist, poke, slice, part, uproot, divide, lift, dissect, separate, and pry. Whatever your word for opening up an electronic device, he can do it.

  • Jimmy's high-quality steel blade easily slips between the tightest gaps in the toughest devices.
  • The ergonomic handle and flexible steel blade make it easy to open devices — with the nimble precision of a repair surgeon’s scalpel.

My Problem

My computer would not recognize my OP-1 when plugged in. I had a feeling it was a connectivity issue, since the cable worked fine.

My Fix

The fix was actually quite simple. I've never fixed technology in the past like this, so I was intimidated at the start. Once I started the process I realized it was very . . .

My Problem

My iPod has been my companion for years. It holds all of my music in one place and provides the cheesiest games for when one is in a pinch (saved me so many times). The headphone jack started to play only in mono. This was no good, I took it to Apple, who was kind enough to tell me that my product w . . .

My Problem

I bought a used OP-1 from a seller on Craigslist. Everything seemed to be in fine condition until I really started to use it at home.

My Problem

The iPod would forget itself in the cold -classic battery symptom.

My Fix

Overall, the repair went really well. The instructions and the replacement battery were spot on. One small detail was missed in the repair guide...Six tiny screws hold the faceplate to the bulk of the insides. Maybe I missed this deta . . .

My Problem

I have a 5th generation iPod. It has gigabytes of music on it. The battery was dead; it could not be recharged.

My Fix

I'm not a very handyman type person. My alternative to fixing it myself was to find someone else to do it, or recycle the device. I checked two repair places; neither one would work on . . .

My Problem

You have to be able to fix anything that comes into the repair shop, that why I decided to buy the Pro Tech Toolkit from ifixit. I was so excited when this came in the mail.

My Fix

Everything went well, I was able to work on any device in the shop. I only had the tool kit for day before I accidentally left . . .

My Problem

I'm hard on phones and iPads. I can't even wear a watch. It ends up scratched, dented or in pieces within 6 months.

My Fix

It's the second time for the iPad mini digitizer so it was much easier. First time for the phone and that was simple too.

My Advice

The one recommendation I have is read the step by step instruc . . .

My Problem

My sons battery couldn't hold a load, battery would drain in 20 min , and once plugged it would show nearly a full charge.

My Fix

Went great. The hardest part was the glue holding down the old battery was fairly strong making it hard to pry out. Also the soldering in of the new one was a little trickier t . . .

My Problem

For years the Super Drive in my Macbook pro did not work so it was litterally wasting space. Instead of just replacing the Super Drive I decided to go a more extravagant route and install a second drive (for cost reasons the second drive is a SSHD or Hybrid) . I also wanted to upgrade the traditio . . .
