Apple sold more than 700 million iPhones, and while many of those phones get fixed every day, even more are simply thrown out. With the help of this tool kit, you could be making those phones run like new. By the time you’ve fixed five phones, this kit will have paid for itself!

Stories

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 them on top of my car at the end my shift :( never saw them again, other than that this was the best toolkit I've ever owed. Will buy another set when I save up enough money.

My Advice

guard these tools with your life or don't forget them on top of your car because the guy from alberto's offered you free super fries for restoring his tablet and you got distracted

My Problem

Battery in the Macbook Pro is down to 50 minutes of life after 3 years.

My Fix

My family expressed their consternation and my wife elucidated her lack of confidence as I flipped over her MacBook Pro. "What are you doing?" they asked in alarm as I opened my new toolkit from FixIt. "I'm changing the battery," I told them cooly. There was much concern about a ruined computer, statements about leaving this to the professionals, and other sentiments expressed. Nonetheless, in 10 minutes the Macbook Pro was powering up with a brand new battery, still at 60% out of the box. The family realized the confidence they should have had all along. The dad was impressed with much better build quality in a Mac than any other laptop.

My Advice

Watch the excellent FixIt videos.

My Problem

1. My fan on my Ps4 made a lot of noise because of high temperature.

2. My Ps4 look kind of stock, so it needed paint

My Fix

It went very well, new thermal paste between the processor and heatsink. The old thermal paste was starting to harden.

lower temperature = less fan noise.

Som paint on the Ps4 has done the trick!

My Advice

watch the teardown video and just do it!

My Problem

no problem

My Fix

no problem

My Advice

tool kit looks great! Has everything you need for computer service work!

My Problem

I started having issues with iphone5. When I pressed power/ lock button it took the screen shot and then hung up. It also restarted automatically after that. Initially I thought it was something to do with software so I reset phone completely and reinstalled from backup, but issue still existed. I found out that most likely it was an issue with home button, or home button cable.

My Fix

I ordered parts and tool kits from ifixit.com. followed the video and instructions closely. I had hard time taking glass screen off from the base but finally got it out. I also had issues with taking two contact points out from home button cable and ended up damaging one of the contact points while taking old cable out. (Luckily had replacement cable). I also found out that contact points for home button were not aligned correctly and not sure if I had messed them up when i tried to open top glass.

Once I fix all of these parts, I thought I had solved the issue. Its worked fine for few minutes but then started to show same problems. So i did more search and found out that it could be issues with two contact points (gold plated prongs) in phone. I spend the phone gain and realigned them again to make sure they look similar to as shows in some pictures from ifixit.com. So far its been working fine.

My Advice

yes, I think you should mention about these two contact points on iPhone that touches the home button ribbon cable. If they are messed up then even with new parts issues still exists.

Also, one of the videos on your website shows that these contact points get misaligned while trying to open top glass cover. I am attaching pictures of misaligned contact points from your website and correctly aligned contact points.

My Problem

Speaker quit working. Priced replacement phone $456.00

Apple wanted $175.00 to fix after I drove it to them, would need to leave with them and drive back to get it. I checked your website and ordered repair kit and speaker and fixed myself $75.00!

My Fix

Read the free online instructions, used tools from my repair kit, grabbed my coffee and went to work. Took no more than 20 minutes,. I paid for my repair kit in my first use! I then used the repair kit to re pair and tighten all our eyeglasses. IFIXIT sent a email making sure I received my repair kit and parts needed. Also sent link to repair instructions and a blog site to visit if I was having trouble. Is this a great company or what.

My Advice

I do have some advice. Order your repair parts from this company. Not only do they help you fixit, they do a fantastic job of follow up and help you walk through your I phone repairs. And send you free videos and encouragement. Oh and you will save a boatload of money.

My Problem

My Mac Mini 2011 lately got slower and slower and I considered even buying a new one. But when I discovered that the core hardware from my mac mini even with a beefed up new mac mini would not be essential different, I reconsidered and looked more into the why my mac mini is slow. Turned out that it seemed to be the hard disk that was the bottle neck. Every disk access end up in a waiting game. So I decided to exchange my hard disk for 500GB SDD and hope that this would solve my problem.

My Fix

I did several repairs before but never on a mac mini and was a bit nervous realizing what a tight space this machine is. With the help of the guide of ifixit it was however a breeze. I was glad that I read some of the comments that suggested that it was not necessary to take out the whole motherboard and sure enough they were right.

My Advice

Take your time. Go slow. It is not necessary to take the motherboard out if you are carefully lay the antenna to its side. If you want more room to work than follow the complete guide and take the motherboard out too.

and for the conclusion: this hdd upgrade totally fixed my performance issue on the mac mini. Feels like a brand new mac again.

My Problem

I found a 24" iMac from 2008 in the garbage at my job, after taking it home I ventured into learning how I might repair it. After a lot of troubleshooting and tests, I decided I needed to pry it open and swap the hard drive. I bought this tool kit to assist with replacing the hard drive and everything went smooth! There was a lot more work after swapping the drives, but the tool kit made it possible for me to bring it back to life.

My Fix

Taking it apart wasn't really the hard part, especially since I had learned the root of the problem was the fact that there was NO HARD DRIVE inside the %#*@ thing! After putting in a drive and getting a copy of OSX(the MUCH more difficult part believe it or not) it runs fine now. The main issue I was concerned with was the fact that I didn't have the heavy duty suction cups, but honestly the one provided in this tool kit was (barely) adequate enough to pull the glass panel off the iMac, which magnetically snaps into the body itself. I guess that's why they suggest the heavy duty suction cups. Aside from that, the torx security bits worked great, I didn't manage to strip a screw or damage the heads.

My Advice

Find an iMac in the dumpster? CHECK THE DRIVE BAY. Think it's a hardware issue? CHECK THE DRIVE BAY. Missing folder icon at boot? CHECK THE DRIVE BAY!!

In all seriousness, had I just bought the tool kit immediately and popped it open, it would've saved me about a week of tinkering, but lesson learned!

A side note unrelated to the tool kit, using a USB installer did NOT work for me on this model as it refused to recognize any disk not connected to a SATA port, so my solution ultimately was to make an installer on a separate partition on the same hard drive. This worked out well and would also have saved me about 4 days of tinkering, so now you know!

My Problem

So the kid walks up one day and says my phone didn't charge last night. so we tried a different charger and cable for a little bit and notice that wasn't work, so decided to take a closer look. We notice that there was some lint in the connector and thought great easy fix. Pulled the lint out and notice that the center pin in the connector looked a lot shorter then the rest. Did a little internet search for what the connector was supposed to look like and found that the connector was broke. Figure if I was going to tear this thing down that far might as well put a new battery in it at the same time.

My Fix

For me that hardest part of the repair was actually getting the screen off, I think this was due the the phone being dropped a few dozen times, after all it does belong to the kid, So the corners are smashed in a little bit. The instructions on the site were really easy to follow. Like the fact that the screws are color coded in the directions, which made it really easy to keep them separated and reassembly go without a hitch. all in all it took around 45 min to complete.

My Advice

A few thing I noticed that the site pic's don't show very well. when pulling the screen from the body there is a rubber gasket around the outside edge, this need to come out with the screen. Mine the gasket was wanting to stay with the rest of the body, I think this is due to the phone being dropped and the corners being bent in a little. Just take your time and use the spudger to help lift it out. The one other thing I found was the the standoff were a little harder to get out then I thought, almost think that a different tool other then a flat blade screwdriver would work better, but everything I had was way to big. Also keep an eye on the washers under the connector I had two that were stuck to the bottom and the others were still in the case.

My Problem

Since I usually use external mouse I did not discover that my trackpad was difficult to press down before I went for traveling and had to use my trackpad.

My Fix

Repair went really nice! I bought Pro Tech Toolkit and trackpad from IFIXIT. Replacing the trackpad was really not big deal when I had correct tools. The Pro Magnetic mat was nice as well.

My Advice

After replacing trackpad I discovered that the problem was not the trackpad, but my battery that had gone bigger (swollen). So main problem for me seems to be the battery, and not the trackpad. So my advice would be to also check if battery have start to swollen if trackpad is difficult to press down.
