My Problem

Intermitent failure in the MBP display, when screen angle changed.

My Fix

The repair went with no problems.

My Advice

The assembly sold by iFixit simplifies considerably the repair.

My Problem

This wasn't necessarily a fix, but I wanted to speed up my 2007 MacBook because it still works great for Photoshop and Illustrator. I was also holding off upgrading the OS to Lion until I could get an SSD so the installation process would be less tedious. I purchased a Crucial 240GB SSD from Amazon which is double the storage of the 120GB SATA that came with the MacBook.

My Fix

The hard drive swap couldn't have been any easier. I might have hit a snag if I didn't already have a screw driver set with Torx screw bits, but the screws stick out far enough that someone could unscrew them with a small pair of pliers I suppose. I don't think it took longer than ten minutes to swap the hard drives and get everything back together.

My Advice

I would highly recommend reading through the guide carefully and making sure you have a set of Torx screwdrivers available. Otherwise, if you're comfortable with removing the battery and undoing a couple screws I don't think you should run into any problems.

My Problem

My joystick wouldnt go to the top left corner.

My Fix

I spent about $5 on a torx screwdriver, and then about 15 minutes following this guide. It was really quick and easy. There was a loose piece of plastic restricting my joystick's movement, once I moved that back to its proper place the controller worked fine.

When I had contacted xbox support, they had suggested I spend $60 on a brand new controller. Glad I took the time to do it myself.

My Advice

I used a flathead screwdriver instead of a spudger. Didn't have any problems.

My Problem

Needed to upgrade the SSD drive

My Fix

Great - The iMac runs like it is brand new

My Advice

Pricing and Shipping were hassle-free

My Problem

The mini wasn't broken, but the stock hard drive was of the slow 5400 rpm variety, which made the computer itself very slow when running OS X 10.11. So I wanted to find out if I could replace its hard drive with a speedier SSD, and ifixit had the tools and instructions I needed.

My Fix

The repair went fine. The step-by-step instructions were complete and accurate. They took all the guesswork out of how to disassemble the unit to get to the drive bay. There was a little bit of work getting the new SSD to sit in the mount, but that's down to Apple not making it easy. Other than that, it was pretty straightforward. I swapped the drives, put the mini back together, turned it on and cloned the old drive to the new. The drive swap took about 30 minutes, and the cloning took about six hours.

My Advice

I might add one more step at the very end of the drive replacement instructions that shows removing the SATA adapter from the drive itself, which is needed for connecting the new SSD. But I knew about this detail from swapping out laptop drives in older PowerBooks, so that wasn't a mystery for me. Someone doing this task the first time might not know about this detail.

My Problem

The keyboard stopped working when water was spilled on it.

The repair shop wanted too much money so we just used an external keyboard. We finally found this an unacceptable solution.

My Fix

We followed the iFixit instructions. The repair was almost flawless. The microphone connection to the I/O board broke when we tried to remove the wire. It is very fragile. Luckily, that is not a necessary feature for us. We didn't even test it, but it probably still works.

My Advice

We put out white sheets of paper and numbered each step that removed screws or parts. We taped the parts to the paper with clear tape next to the step number. This was super useful for the tiny screws. We labeled screws when two different kinds were used in the same step.

We had to get a 000 phillips screw driver. We had 10 minutes to spare on New Years eve.

My Problem

Fractured display College "cleaning" accident....

My Fix

Smooth, great reassembly tips - 45 minutes and looks like new!

My Advice

Read the guide, all the way through...

My Problem

En dormant, j'avais malencontreusement cassé l'écran de mon MacbookPro Retina 13", il était au fur et à mesure devenu tout noir, impossible de l'utiliser sans un écran externe.

My Fix

Cela a prit en tout et pour tout 20min.

Le tutoriel est très bien expliqué, je conseille tout de même d'acheter le matériel de démontage avec.

My Advice

Commander sur iFixit, le produit est très bien conditionné, commandé le Lundi soir, le tout m'est parvenu le jeudi matin. C'est juste parfait.

My Problem

My early 2009 iMac was really lagging. I hated the ideas of buying a new one when most of the hardware was still in great shape. Therefore I decided to upgrade the hard drive to a solid state.

My Fix

Great! The performance has been fantastic and it really has given my computer and new life. Working slowly it took me about an hour and a half to replace the drive. The iFixit guide was very helpful.

My Advice

Make sure you have compressed air. When the LCD screen is removed it is a great opportunity to clean out some dust!

My Problem

Might I suggest to always close your MacBook before pulling cables. Any amount of torque on a cable can cause it to jump back over onto you laptop. If your closing the display when this happens it can be surprisingly easy to break the display if the cable jumps between the laptop and display.

My Fix

The repair took me about an hour and was not difficult at all... or should I say, not difficult once I figured how to reconnect the 3 antenna leads. I had to wear two pairs of readers at the same time so I could see what I was doing, LOL.

My Advice

Although the instructions where clear on how to take the Airport antenna leads off, I found myself a bit lost when trying to reconnect them. Once I figured that you have to get them lined up and then give a good press, they will click into place the remaining two where fairly easy. You might could mention that.
