Even if you don't have anything to fix yourself, you can still fix other people's things! Cell phone repair is a booming self-starting business. Students, stay-at-home parents, and entrepreneurs are all joining in to fix phones for their friends and locals, while making good profit for themselves. Apple sold 37 million iPhones in the 4-month holiday season of 2011, 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!

You don’t have to be a repair technician to find this kit useful. This kit is also great for anyone who has a phones, tablets, and laptops around the house. Our 54 bit toolkit and the various poking, prodding, opening, measuring, and grabbing tools that come with it will keep all your home’s electronics in working order.

This kit is great even for non-electronics. The small bits are great for doorknobs, eyeglasses, cabinet doors, sink fixtures, and more. If you are looking for a great addition to an artists or hobbyist's tool chest, look no further. The prying tools are great for sculpting clay and other materials.

In addition to our thousands of repair professional and home tinkering customers, this kit has become very popular with domestic and international top secret intelligence agencies with three-letter names we can’t name here. Oh, and we’ve also sold kits to some computer company named after a fruit (not a pear or orange) and many of their competitors use the kits internally.

My Problem

I have a short history of computer ownership. From an iBook G4 to a Gateway LT2016u to a Dell Latitude D630 to a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 (present). Each computer was replaced as the previous one developed issues seemingly beyond my ability to repair, until recently.

The iBook had charging and battery issues, along with the hardware becoming ever increasingly out-dated (still collecting dust). The Gateway has keyboard issues (likely stemming from spilling liquids of some sort). Finally, the Latitude D630 has a battery issue where it doesn't hold a charge and (until recently) would not connect to the internet wirelessly. I also have a 5th Generation iPod that has a broken screen.

One of the biggest hurdles in learning to repair the various broken electronics in my possession was not having the proper tools. As an automotive technician, I understand the importance of having the proper tools for the job at hand.

Thanks to iFixit's extensive repair guides and the Pro Tech Toolkit, I had the tools I needed to go ahead and repair my devices.

My Fix

Upon receiving the Pro Tech Toolkit, I was impressed by the quality of the tools included. I dove straight into getting familiar with the removal of basic components on the Gateway: RAM, Hard Drive, Keyboard. I found that the tools included in the Pro Tech Toolkit were vital to removing all of these components, specifically the keyboard.

I also made an attempt at dismantling my 5th Gen iPod, in order to remove the broken screen and to see the difficulty in the removal process. Thanks to the tools included in the Pro Tech Toolkit, as well as the extensive Repair Guide on iFixit regarding this process, the screen removal was a success! Following the successful screen removal, I placed an order through iFixit for a screen replacement as well as some spare iPod separation tools (considering these types of plastic tools are wearable items).

My Advice

Do not be afraid to tackle some basic electronics repair! Remember to have the proper tools on hand, follow the repair guides, and TAKE YOUR TIME!

Many of my repair projects have been waiting for years for me to get started on them, mainly due to not having the tools and knowledge (which I found on iFixit) to complete the repairs.

The Pro Tech Toolkit has EVERYTHING I need to get started on my repair projects, THANKS iFixit!

My Problem

The Battery was no longer holding a charge. What more is there to say?

My Fix

After watching several guides, especially the iFixit one, I felt very confident in replacing the battery, so we ordered the replacement kit (with the tools). Despite the screws being incredibly small, the repair went really well! I didn't remove the screen, as that seemed like an extra step, but I was careful about not damaging the ribbon for it too.

The two hardest parts were using the suction cup and the glue. The phone had a screen protector on the front, and no matter how hard I tried I could not get enough grip on the screen to pull it up with the protector on. I removed the protector, and while it did come up, it took a lot of force, which iFixit did mention in the video.

The second was the battery glue. The iFixit video outlined the best areas to apply my leverage too, which was really good information! It took a bit of coaxing, but was far easier than getting the screen off.

My Advice

- Watch multiple videos to familiarize yourself with the process

- You'll probably need to take off any screen protectors on the front, otherwise you would be able to apply enough upward force to get the screen off

- Have a place to store the two types of screws, they're so small and can be easily lost

- Go slowly, be careful!

My Problem

Wanted to give my 6 year old MacBook Pro an upgrade.

My Fix

This tool kit gave me all I needed to complete my MacBook upgrade and more. I will be fully prepared for any device repair in the future. Great product and I love that it's all bundled in the kit bag.

My Advice

No.

My Problem

I could not charge my iPod Touch.

My Fix

The charging port on my iPod Touch was very dirty. I used some of the tools from the Pro Tech ToolKit to get all the dust bunnies out. It worked, but it took a lot of cleaning. I had to get it all out making sure that it was 100% clean. Only then did it start charging again.

My Advice

Make absolutely certain that the device is not working before taking it apart. I was tempted to take apart my iPod Touch, but I'm glad I didn't.

My Problem

Being an A+ Certified Technician, having quality tools is a must, and these tools are the only ones you will ever need (in terms of screwdriver bits). This kit has every bit that you will need for smartphones, tablets, laptops, desktops, even just the little stuff around the house. They are of superior quality compared to other kits on the market, and the site says they come with a lifetime warranty. You can't do any better than that.

My Fix

Amazing! I've used this kit on many laptops and desktops to aid in my repairs. The tools are amazing, and having everything you need in a compact space, instead of many screwdrivers taking up precious storage space of your workstation.

My Advice

If you need absolutely everything for the extreme repairs, don't skimp on the cost and go for the Small Business Repair Kit that iFixit sells. You will be very pleased.

My Problem

Macbook Late 2008 Aluminium was a bit too old and when I tried to run XBMC kodi and Eclipse Luna. The temperature gauge pro always pop that my CPU temperature is getting hotter. I decide to replace the heatsink and the thermal paste as well.

My Fix

It did not go smooth even I had the iFixit pro tech tool kit. I think when I did the first attempt which is removing the logic board I was too excited to use the tool kit so I was really in a hurry. It happen the thing that I don't like to happen which stripping the screw :( it was a bit of a struggle but after using different type of approach of getting stripped screw out I solve it using a rotary tool kit with the help of screw extractor from Ifixit took me for about a month to solve it.

My Advice

The first advice I want to give is to be patient on small screws.

Think everything is easy and entertaining and don't give up when you see struggle. I would like you to think it this way first attempt is not always good but the more you do it the more it you get the hang of it.

My Problem

I needed a really good set of tools for electronics work; I get asked by friends and family all the time if I can fix something. I heard about ifixit from Linus Tech Tips , bought the tools, and have so far been completely overjoyed with them.

My Fix

The several repairs I've performed so far have gone fantastic. I've even repaired non-electronic items with the kit.

My Advice

Don't lose the plastic tweezers covers. Keep those close at hand.

My Problem

Some say dirt don't hurt, but dirt is a silent killer of computing hardware that should be felt with. I planned on having surgery, so to occupy my next few days off I thought I'd pop the hood on the Mac machine and change the oil and kick her tires. Just want to open it up clean it out and maybe learn a few things.

My Fix

Surgery is to day young grasshopper.

My Advice

When they say don't eat or drink after midnight, just listen.

My Problem

Typical starving artist, photographer, graphic designer, jack of all things...creative. Repairing the tools of my trade out of neccessity is usually my only fesible option compared to the other choices:

1) Finding a repair service that is a costly, frustrating, long process.

2) Miraculously finding a way to follow the suggested 'trend' of replacing my gear every year.

3) Being given all brand new gear by a kind individual just for doing an accurate impersonation of Chewy. (I've really been holding out for this one.)

Anyway. When the power button was pressed nothing happened. Dead. No battery indicator of any kind. The brand new charger barely lit up with a faint green.

My Fix

Decided to replace DC-in Board. Got it in. Everything went smooth. Got a charge light. Got a battery indicator. Got it turned on. Battery 100% charged. Unfortunately, a hodgepodge of keys on the keyboard are functioning improperly. This was probably the main problem all along because fiddling with the keyboard ribbon and using the power pads is what really seemed to get everything functioning back to normal (aside from the keyboard issue.)

The real issue? It's hard to tell if a case/keyboard replacement is all it needs, or if there are darker problems lying beneath the logic board? A wireless keyboard does work for now. There may also be a heat sink problem associated with this. The bottom case gets very hot only on one half of the laptop...the logic board/heat sink side.

My Advice

The Force is strong in you? Easy slugger, to much of that will defiantly disturb the balance of your equipment . Use the right tool for the job and a bit of patience and a full teardown becomes quite reasonable.
