My Problem

As most know, the MacBooks van get extremely hot while running due to some manufacturing "flaw", if you will. In my apartment, I have no windows, so I'm the morning I open the door to let some light in. I live in Louisiana, so the humidity is ridiculous at times. The hother MacBook didn't mix well with the humid weather once I opened my door and cause a condensation layer to form under my MacBook! The screen went out (no backlight) but everything else was completely functional. I thought changing the screen would help so I decided to fix it myself.

My Fix

The repair went great, as far as replacing the screen goes. Keeping track of the screws is the most important thing!! unfortunately, the backlight still does not work and I will bring it to apple with a pity story to see if I can get some type of replacement. If not, I will attempt to replace the logic board myself!

My Advice

bags or labels for screws is a must.

The tools provided by ifixit are okay,

however, there's a multi-screwdriver but set at home Depot that has every bit needed for tiny screws for about $5.00.

My Problem

After 6 years of use battery was almost exhausted, lasting less than an hour.

My Fix

Replacing the batter was pretty easy. Especially if you have done things like RAM or Hard Disk replacements. Just needs care and attention.

My Advice

Just be careful and attentive. It's pretty straightforward

My Problem

Mac support diagnosed a crashed hard drive, I decided to investigate and attempt to repair. My initial plan was to replace it with a different Windows based laptop hard drive then format it using the Mac drive tools. Unfortunately the Mac disk utility did not register the new drive, let alone allow me to format. Even more curiously, the original hard drive that was diagnosed as "crashed" was fine after I formatted it on my Windows desktop. Yet, still would not read on the Mac.

My Fix

Poorly due to Macintosh.

My Problem

I take my iPod to bed - and on a certain day the headphone jack got twisted - and damaged my iPod internally. So: no more music. It was a very very sad day. The most economic way to fix this was to order the required spare parts and tools and do it myself. (If others can do it, I can do it too)

My Fix

Repair went fine but I took my time: about an hour. I Read the instructions thoroughly.

Removing the cover without damaging/bending it was the hardest part. I did not use the plastic opening tools - they were no real help.

My Advice

Take your time and concentrate. Remove tape over cables slow and gently. Watch carefully that the flat cables remain flat - I had a small problem with that. The new cable was bent next to the headphone jack and this resulted in a very distorted sound.

At that point I thought : "My GOD, what have I done!?".

Gently straightening the cable solved the issue and my iPod was as new. Then I taped the cables back on their original places.

Tip 1: order the required tools.

Tip 2: Test your iPod while it is still open, if anything went wrong - you can easily look for the problem without the need to reopen the thing.

Tip 3: keep cats, spouses and children away from the operation quarter.

Couldn't have done it without iFixit though, big thanks guys!

My Problem

I use my phone quite heavily and after more than a year the battery wasn't lasting even half way thru my shift and I'm constantly moving so i Can't just plug it in. Time to try and replace the battery.

My Fix

The replacement went easy. I was concerned with disconnecting and reconnecting of the ribbon cables but they weren't a problem.

My Advice

I really like what ifixit is doing, almost all consumer devices should be consumer repairable.

My Problem

For over a year, my 2007 MacBook has been overheating and displaying a black screen with a bunch of mumbo jumbo text, and all I could do was force shut down. It would not last a second trying to watch a youtube video. I found this site and the videos made it seem so easy to repair a fan. Since it was so cheap, I thought I'd give it a try. Fixing my own computer never crossed my mind. But I had nothing to lose, really.

My Fix

I followed the photo guide posted with the part on this site. I followed it to the T. There was a little hesitation prying the keyboard ribbon, but I looked over to another video to find exactly which direction i needed to shove the spudger. It was easy-peasy, my computer doesnt shut down anymore. It still gets pretty warm. It's a whole new world, and I am ready to replace another part, on another computer, as long as I have the guide and the tools from ifixit. It's really been empowering. Just don't ask me to write up a software program.

My Advice

Definitely buy all the parts or tools that are suggested on the site. It's a really great guide. I had the image tutorial up and the video tutorial (on how to open up the computer). Both were useful.

My Problem

Ps Vita wasnt charging at ALL

My Fix

Ps vita worked perfectly fine after replacing the battery

My Advice

Don't listen to anyone the problem is the battery if you're having charging issues with your 1st Generaton ps vita

My Problem

I kept this computer because it had the wonderful 17" monitor that I loved for watching movies. But the once mighty 200 GB hard drive was another story. I had gotten used to an external drive for the iTunes and movies directory but I discovered that the moment I used the computer without the external drive the iTunes directory moved itself back to the local drive. I'd move it back and try to remember not to do it again. Eventually this and other things got inconvenient but I assumed that replacing the drive was going to require an expensive professional intervention or my taking a chance with my own personal repair inexperience. I hesitated forever until one day the drive failed and I decided I had nothing to lose.

My Fix

The repair went astonishingly well. Absolutely smoothly, exactly as the guide showed. I thought it was going to be like trying to do surgery on a cat, having seen the complex, tightly layered spaghetti/origami world of mac electronics in tear-down pictures. I had assumed it would be way to easy to twist, bend, tear, or break something in all of that. Instead it was easier than following a cooking recipe. It was mostly removing and replacing screws. Without the pictorial guide, though, and the correct tools I got through iFixit I wouldn't have had a chance on my own. I wouldn't have even known that there was something called a Torx screw, what size screws these were, or how to find any of that out. So really, the guide and the tools were 99% of what was needed. My job was the easy part.

My Advice

I would suggest reading the notes and comments people add over time at the bottom of the guide. There can be small variations between the same model devices. There are also little details that some people ran into problems with that their comments help avoid, things you'd only know by already having bent something or pulled something the wrong way. Or even suggestions that allow you to leave a connector in during the repair rather than completely pulling it out and then having to figure out how to get it back in. I added a particular method that may or may not be needed: I have often found that screws, after many years in a particular location, are not as interchangeable as when things are first being assembled. So I carefully put the screws into rows that matched the images in the guide and taped them in that position so I could replace them in the exact location they came from.

My Problem

This international version of the Galaxy S3 went bad with blank screen (white blank, fully lighted, not dark) and wasn't usable anymore

My Fix

I order the at&t board as I'm with that carrier now but when it arrive I realize it won't fit into the case (the processors and other circuits were in different places, the placing holes, for the CPU, didn't match) so I decided not to return it, but .....

remodify the case itself.

Gladly the samsung case, I mean the motherboard placeholder, is made of aluminium, and also gladly I have my faithful Victorinox Swiss Knife with me, whos sharp steel let me carved all the way, reducing the placeholder nerves to flat, so the board will fit and not bend.

After that process, about 1h, the board was fittin enough, so I interchanged the soft heat sink that the original board had to the new one, and that its how I got the phone to work.

Also had to introduce a padding below the power button area, otherwise the camera won't work.

My Advice

1. Try to get the board for your case

2. If you decide to "modify" the case like I did, be very careful not to leave any aluminium filings behind otherwise you could shortcircuit and mess up everything

3. Be sensitive about pressures applied to the equipment and sounds that it may do, if you suddenly hear a high pitch noise remove the battery, don't think it twice :)

My Problem

Original battery started to swell which affected the track pad.

My Fix

I watched the video on how to change the battery before buying the new one. The battery, spudger and screwdrivers arrived within a few days and replacing it took less than five minutes. It was easier than I thought it would be.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to do repairs that are fairly simple and straight forward. IFIXIT provides all the support and and technical assistance you need with written instructions, video and live person assistance. Even if you think a repair is beyond your capability, I suggest contacting contacting IFIXIT before taking your device in for repair.
