My Problem

My battery of my MacBook pro and the charge port of my iPhone 5

My Fix

I started with my Macbook pro that was simple. Then came the nurve racking part my iPhone 5. This is my daily driver and can't really afford a new phone at the moment. I was a little bit nurvese but I went foward and did my best. Taking the logic board was the hardest part. Second came putting the screen back.

My Advice

There are some parts of the charge port that you need to transfer that the guid does not tell you. Like the grounding wire that goes around the headphone jack. The little fome that is around the mic

My Problem

The LCD display on my 2.2 GHz MacBook Core 2 Duo (late 2007) worked fine when it was part way open but went dark when fully open. I used it for several months while the problem got progressively worse. A little online research convinced me that I had a bad inverter cable. I discovered iFixit had the instructions for replacing the cable so I decided to give it a go. Why buy a new laptop if you can fix the old one for a few dollars?

My Fix

I got a few tools from iFixit and just followed the instructions. There were a couple of spots where I had to look closely and prod gently to figure out how things came apart. I worked slowly and carefully. It was fun. When I was done, the laptop worked perfectly.

My Advice

I put the parts I removed at each step in separate, labeled zip-loc bags. A desk lamp with a built-in magnifying glass was an invaluable tool. I took the opportunity to clean out years of accumulated dust and dirt. I even cleaned the exterior surfaces to make them white again.

The laptop worked so well that I replaced the hard drive with a solid state drive (SSD) and was amazed at the increase in speed. I am enjoying it more now than when it was new.

My Problem

Rear camera stopped responding, black screen only and frozen. Front camera still working fine. Tried hard resets, etc. Replaced the camera and now all is good again. works like new.

My Fix

Fine, followed the guide and all went well. However, there should be a note about bending the flash cable on the new camera.

Only problem was the 00 phillips from ifixit was too big, needed to get a smaller jewellers phillips.

My Advice

Be prepared to bend the flash cable and attache the flash module to the replacement camera.

My Problem

I'm an amateur astronomer. I enjoy taking images of interesting things in the night sky. I have an extra, older Nikon DSLR camera that I decided to risk modifying by removing interior filters to make the camera more sensitive to certain wavelengths of light.

My Fix

I used a cheap 00 screwdriver at first, and stripped two of the first screws. After finding iFixit and ordering a much better set of 00 and 000 screwdrivers, the other screws holding the camera body together came out without a hitch.

My Advice

Bingo - get a better screwdriver and the job goes a lot easier!

My Problem

The rear camera got damaged after an accident where the iPhone hit the floor a little bit to hard. Even the rear case got damaged. And then the battery only worked for a hour, I desided it was time to do something.

My Fix

Thanks to Ifixit, I got both the "how-to" and the replacement parts. It took a long time - almost 5 hours! The repair did go well, even the tiny parts, but I had to redo something - some connectors who got forgotten (difficult to use the phone when You forgot to connect the cellular data antenna...). But I'm satisfied - the phone is saved from the trashcan - it works as it is brand new!

My Advice

The "how-to" could be a little more informative on how to assemble the iPhone - I got some problems because some of the connectors were hiding under the "main unit". But overall: Can I, can You!

My Problem

My 13" MacBook stopped booting due to the OS not being found. I tried a friend's extra OS X-installed hard drive with no luck so I assumed that the hard drive cable was to blame.

My Fix

The iFixit repair guide was a lot better than the various YouTube videos I'd looked at. I should have paid a bit closer attention to which size screwdriver to use for which screws, as I ended up stripping one screw a little bit, but overall the process went pretty cleanly.

Unfortunately after the replacement nothing changed. I tried some RAM resets and then booted in Verbose mode only to realize the alternate hard drive had a version of OS X that wasn't supported by my hardware. Whoops. Then after reinstalling the original hard drive I realized that the hard drive was the problem all along.

My Advice

Make sure to try alternative boots and run in verbose mode before determining the cause of the problem. Assumptions can lead you down an unnecessary path. Also, if the hard drive might be the problem, listen really closely. I've heard hard drive clicking before, but I missed it this time (prior to try the repair) and would have caught it with a bit more care.

Getting the spudger and screwdrivers was worth it though, as now I can fix many other things much more easily. In fact I was able to fix my mother's old handheld CD player.

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

phone needed a new battery

My Fix

The tools that were sent with the battery (from another company) were not strong enough to undo the screws. So, we ordered tools from iFixit and we now have a new battery in the phone.

My Advice

Don't depend on the cheap tools sent with many batteries. You need good tools to get the job done.

My Problem

I acquired two broken iPhone 5 devices, one that fell into a lake and one that was dropped onto kitchen tile. The "wet" one was completely inoperable and the dropped one worked, but the display was nothing but vertical lines. I wondered if the wet display would work in the other phone, so I ordered some tools and used the iFixIt repair guide to find out.

My Fix

It totally worked! I removed the display from the lakebed phone and installed it in the other phone. At first I went the lazy route and kept the speakers, mics, camera attached to the "wet" display, but found that they were too damaged to work, but the display was fine, amazingly enough. I went back and put the dry pieces in place and now have a totally working iPhone 5. I reassembled the water damaged one with the now cracked display and plan to use it as a prank -- act like I'm talking on it and drop it on purpose to trick someone into thinking I just destroyed my phone. :)

My Advice

My advice is to fix what can be fixed!

My Problem

The screen of my fair phone broke to the point that I had pieces of glass stuck in my hair when I would call someone.

My Fix

I wanted to repair it myself, so I ordered all the things online and followed the instructions, and now I'm the proud owner of a phone i fixed myself. I'm almost proud of myself.

My Advice

If you are repairing something with super tiny parts, and if you tend to be slightly clumsy, work on a fairly low surface so that if something falls, it can't fall too far. Also, don't work above fuzzy carpet. Things will mysteriously disappear.
