My Problem

As a musician doing outdoor gigs in Florida, my macbook air gets exposed to a lot of use above the recommended ambient temperature. Battery went stone cold dead.

My Fix

Repair was a piece of cake! iFixIt has excellent visual instructions. Very easy to follow.

My Advice

Get 4 small containers to put the screws in... There are 2 sizes of screws in the cover, and 2 sizes on the battery itself.

My Problem

After checking the Microsoft website and finding out if I send in my tablet(in good shape) with $320 They will send me back a refurbished one. (EBay has them for $99.) I decided to take it apart what the heck it doesn't work anyway. The charger seemed to emit 12 volts. I ordered tools and a charging port from iFixit and about a week later I dug in to it.

My Fix

The hardest part was getting the bezel off with spudger tools. But it came off with only a few scratches. I read somewhere all you needed to do was unplug the ribbon cable and plug it back in and the problem would be reset so with lots of light and a magnifier I did it( I'm an old fart). The reason I didn't replace the charging port was I had no T4 screwdrivers. The port was not the problem anyway.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to dig into it and possibly brake something. What the heck the thing doesn't work anyway.

My Problem

The power charging port on my daughter's Microsoft Surface RT was failing. Microsoft told me it could not be fixed, but they would sell me a new Surface Pro 3. They would only take $150 off the price of the new one for me and I had 1 week to move on the offer. The cost to fix this through IFixit ended up costing me less than $40. This was my daughter's gift from Santa two years ago, so she was overjoyed that Daddy was able to fix it.

My Fix

It was a piece of cake. I'm a former IBM Service Representative, so my past experience also was beneficial.

My Advice

Spread the word about IFixit!

My Problem

I broke my macbook screen on a very dumb accident, the outside of the screen was perfect not a single scratch on it.

But when I turn on my macbook you can notice on the screen a huge crack that covers half of it.

I could never believe how fragile this laptop screen really is, so i will be more careful with it in the future.

And original screen replacement would cost double of what i paid to do it myself by buying everything from iFixit.

I was desperate to fix the screen when my accident happened, and the display was not available for almost three weeks on the ifixit website.

So i looked at other cheaper displays that are sold on ebay, but i didn't trust any of the items i saw there.

Finally when the item was back on stock i ordered it from i fix it.

Then my package arrived and at the moment i opened the package and check the inside of the package.

I was so glad on the decision i made to wait and buy the parts from i fixit.

The wrapping was so perfectly done so that the screen wouldn't suffer any damages from the transportation.

I just noticed that the screen doesn't have any protection when is not installed on the computer so it is more fragile to transport.

My Fix

The replacement guide from your website was very detail and perfect for a none experienced person to follow it.

I strongly suggest that anyone that needs to replace a macbook screen should buy the all parts and tools from the iFixIt website.

My Advice

The P5 pentalobe that i purchased from the iFixIt store is very delicate and doesn't reach all the depth of the screw hole.

You have to be extremely careful not to damage the screws from the outside. And if you damage the outside screws you will not be able to start the teardown.

Please improve the quality of the pentalobe tip so that it has a better fit on the apple outside case screws.

My Problem

Battery cycle count was high and due to that a full charge would last only 45 mins

My Fix

the battery and the repair kit was easy to use. Took only about 8 mins to replace.

My Advice

definitely use these guys to repair your apple items since instructions are always easy to follow.

My Problem

The surface was used in a classroom and when returned at the end of the school year we found the kickstand broke.

My Fix

Didn't think we would be able to find repair parts but after doing a google search was fortunate to find parts and tools to fix our device. Very happy with the result.

My Advice

Take your time during the repair as the screws are tiny!

My Problem

To get a bigger storage.

My Fix

Smoothly without being electrocuted.

My Advice

Follow steps provided.

My Problem

Already extremely late for an event in which I needed to download a document to use my Macbook Pro Retina 15 Mid 2012 suddenly decided to test my patience and froze itself. Out of time and my laptop decides to freeze in the process of downloading the document which I needed sent me off the edge and in a fit of frustration I pounded on the right side of my laptop onto of the speaker grill. There and then I witnessed the error of my ways as my computer let off a loud whine followed by a constant grate like whir noise. My fan was damaged though it worked as normal spooling up and cooling my laptop the constant whine and groaning made it a nuisance especially considering I used my laptop for University and studying among peers in the library caused a stir especially when I began heavy multitasking and the fans spooled up even louder thus prompting my decision to invest in a replacement.

My Fix

The repair is generally easy and very straight forward. There is a guide on this site written especially for the replacement of the right side fanned it was beautifully done. I am not one with much experience in the field of repair but the resources offered aided me to undertake a success smooth repair. I bought the required fan and tools of iFixit however I didn't option for the spudger just the T5 Torx and the P5 Pentalobe screwdrivers were enough to suffice. The fan replacement is an OEM as it is the same exact fan Apple used iFixit provides as a replacement by Delta Electronics Inc.

My Advice

My advice would be pay attention to where you took out the screws as some screws are off varying sizes and you wouldn't want to mix them. Apart from just changing the fan take some time to clean out any excess dust that may have been gathered there. After two and a half years being sealed I had considerable dust mites gathered.I used a soft toothbrush and my breath to blow and brush out dust. For the role of the spudger I found my nails and a tweezer as a suitable replacement you may however find otherwise . Be very careful when removing the airport and camera cables. The 3 small cables are to lift off while the larger neighboring once is meant to slide out of the socket then pull up, you can make reference to this in step 7 to step 8 of the guide. The airport card should slide out of the socket first as well and then lifted off. When putting back everything together it was fairly simple then only tiresome part I took some time on was getting the 3 small cables of the airport and camera module to stick back on. I used a tweezer and some patience fiddling around to get it to tack back onto its groove. Lastly done not over tighten screws especially the ones locking the fan in place. Generally it isn't a difficult repair and completion time should be averaged within a half hour.

My Problem

My tablet was not charging. I bought new chargers and nothing. I took it to Microsoft and they told me sorry buy a new one. I checked around ordered the proper parts. I spent about 40 minutes swapping it out and all is good

My Fix

Good not long

My Advice

Should put step by step instructions with the order just incase you are repairing the device needed for the instructions online.

My Problem

I enjoy hearing my music loud. My MacBook Air not so much - i blew one of the speakers

My Fix

Repairing was a piece of cake, the guide was perfectly clear I din't have any problems with it.

My Advice

nope
