My Problem

My son broke our iPad air screen. I wanted to fix it because it's fixable.

My Fix

First I went to ebay and bought a touch panel. Used the guide to replace it, but alas, when it was all in place, there were dead spots on the screen! They sent me a new one - same thing with this one. I was starting to think m . . .

My Problem

Had my iphone6 for over 2 years, the latest iOS was giving me that dreaded "Your battery may need replaced" warning. Wouldn't keep a good charge, and sometimes would bounce between battery levels. Looked at new phone and then found this site. After seeing the instructions, tools and testimony i deci . . .

My Problem

My iMac was running super slow. Every test I ran on my hardware reported no issues. However I concluded the issue must be my HDD. So, I decided to slap in an SSD.

My Fix

I have heard/read horror stories about the sealed up Macs of recent years and how they are terrible to work with. I was rather nervous to . . .

My Problem

Overheating causing frequent restarts

My Fix

Super easy and quick. Just make sure to follow directions on bottles of cleaning solution and new thermal paste. Dont use too much paste!

My Fix

My Problem

Uppgrade to SSD

My Fix

Well, opening it was pretty straight forward as soon the mighty adhesive strips was conquered. Closing it required attention and carefulness because of the stickiness of the new adhesive strips. But nothing was really difficult.

Dont walk away in the midst of the repair and do somethin . . .

My Problem

Internal hard drive failed

My Fix

Went very well. Took a while to break loose the display adhesive, but perseverance prevailed. I agree with the commenter who said no need to remove the speaker to replace the hard drive. Only had to move it aside a bit. I replaced the failed hard drive with a SSD. Only tedi . . .

My Problem

The battery on my iPhone 6 was failing. It would regularly be down to 20% by Noon. OR, it would show 50% and then the phone would just shut off.

My Fix

The repair went well overall. HOWEVER, the Phillips screwdriver in the fix kit is the wrong size. It is too large.

My Advice

Take your time and be patient. The adhesiv . . .

My Problem

My iMac would not allow upgrade to macOS Sierra due to hard drive not passing the disk check.

My Fix

The adhesive strips and tool are absolutely required and very high quality. Allowed perfect screen removal. Executed nicely. No problems reinstall screen but I took my time.

My Advice

Kit probably needs the temperatur . . .
