My Problem

Broken USB port on the motherboard needed replacing. I discovered that it was cheaper and easier to replace the entire motherboard as no micro soldering is involved.

My Fix

I placed the phone on a brightly colored towel (to keep screws from rolling, and protect both the phone and work surface). After reading the revised instructions (non-verified) several times, I took the phone apart step by step, being careful not to rip anything apart. All went exactly as described, and following the steps in reverse, resulted in a perfect fix. The hardest part was seeing the connection for the wi-fi cable. Reading glasses and a magnifier helped immensely. The phone now charges through the USB port, and the phone is back up to speed! I am very pleased with the results. I have a new phone for $70! Thank you IFixit.

My Advice

Read, and understand the instructions prior to ripping the phone apart. Wear your glasses, and use a magnifier if necessary to see what is where.

My Problem

I bought an SSD replacement kit from Transcend (the JetDrive kit) for my 2012 MacBook Pro 13". The kit comes with all necessary tools (screwdrivers, etc.) and I was thinking that this would be a no-brainer. I was wrong. For some reason, one of the screws holding the lower case (the longer upper-right screw in ifixit's repair guide) refused to budge. I stupidly tried to force my way in, resulting in an almost-stripped screw (see photo). I've tried the rubber-band trick to no avail. I was going to use the superglue trick, but I thought that I would need a replacement screw after that. So, I decided to order a replacement screw set from ifixit. While I'm at it, I decided to order a Philips #00 screwdriver from ifixit, too.

My Fix

The package arrived a bit earlier than expected, and I was able to gather all stuff I thought I would need—including a superglue tube. However, I decided to give a final try to remove the screw without superglue, using the ifixit screwdriver. The risk, of course, would have been an even more damaged screw head. I held my breath and give it a try anyway.

And... what an anti-climax. Using ifixit's screwdriver, I could effortlessly remove the almost-stripped screw! It was just as if the screw was not even damaged in the first place!

So I removed the screw, proceeded to replace my HDD with the SSD, and replaced the almost stripped screw with one from the set I ordered. Voila! It was that simple!

My Advice

Using the right tool is indeed the key. I thought I was using the correct tool (it came with an SSD replacement kit, for crying out loud!). But apparently I was mistaken. My advice would be to buy tools from sites like ifixit because they are carefully designed for such repairs.

My Problem

The lcd was broken

My Fix

Smooth

My Advice

The numbers on the kit make it white

My Problem

I broke the lcd display. Don't ask me how I did it.

My Fix

It only took a couple hours and very few curse words, which is not bad for my first time fixing anything like this.

My Advice

There's clips on the inside battery pack that weren't mentioned when taking it apart, but I figured it out eventually.

My Problem

I wanted to extend the life of my mid-2009 MacBook Pro by upgrading to an SSD from the original HDD and I install a new battery(which solved my trackpad issues).

My Fix

All went well.

My Advice

Keep an close eye on your back panel screws.

My Problem

One day my computer was acting up by freezing during a function which ultimately restarted my computer. During the boot I got a grey screen with a folder "?". I did a OS X recovery, pulled up the disk utility to find that my HDD was no physically there.

My Fix

The repair went well, the website provides a easy step by step process to remove the exact parts to replace what you need to repair. It was helpful that the website also provides what type of tools to use.

My Advice

I thought that either my HDD unmounted or the drive was corrupted. I reviewed numerous websites about similar postings about the same issue. I found that unbody 2012 edition macbook pro 13' had hard drive cable issues. Normally people will just replace the hard drive right away but I found that you should replace the hard drive cable first before replacing the drive. If the drive was corrupt you computer will not be able to boot up at all.

My Problem

The battery life had was less than 90 minutes.

My Fix

I ordered a battery and related tools. Used I-fix-it directions and replaced the battery in less than 30 minutes. Now operating normally.

My Advice

Go for it. You can do it!

My Problem

My Macbook Pro mid 2012 didn't boot after a forced shutdown. I took it to maintenance and first, they said it was OK, but getting to the store it didn't boot again. Technician said it was a logic board failure. I mentioned the cable, but he said he already tested it.

My Fix

I decided to browse some more and found many similar reports of faulty flat HDD cables. I decided to give Ifixit a try, and ordered the cable plus some tools for the job. The order came very fast for an international order. It was a matter of following the instructions at Ifixit's website, and the laptop was running again, back from the presumed dead.

My Advice

I would say that Ifixit is a wonderful place not only for digging the parts you need, but to see the experiences of users and their issues solved. I wish I had a similar alternative in my country. I would suggest you dig a lot around the web and take with a grain of salt when a technician tells you your machine is gone. Specially when it is something as expensive as a laptop. Thank you, Ifixit!

My Problem

My MBP had slowed down and I thought that upgrading the memory and operating system might help speed it up.

My Fix

With the right tool, a Phillips Precision #00 it was an easy job.

My Advice

I recommend watching one of the Youtube videos first to see how it is done

My Problem

I was having issues with my Wifi Dropping a lot. After researching I found out that there was an issue with the Airport/Bluetooth Cable.... so rather then paying Apple to diagnose that I needed a new Airport/Bluetooth Cable and charge me an arm and a leg to repair it... i figure I would try this out first... for $30 and some change... why not!!

My Fix

So I watched the video and read the step by step directions that iFixit had posted on how to change out the Airport/Bluetooth Cable and it took me less then 20 minutes and I was up and running... it has been about 2 weeks since I replaced the cable and everything seems to be working GREAT!!!

My Advice

Watch the video and follow the step by step instructions that iFixit provides and you will have NO issues
