My Problem

My Nexus 5 and Macbook took a spill unto a concrete floor from a railing about 5 feet up.

My Fix

The tools worked perfectly, the repair guide was perfect and everything came out perfect!

My Advice

Don't put expensive, delicate items on railings.

My Problem

thought i had a bad power supply because iMac had a problem turning on

My Fix

the repair went well 1 hour start to finish. wish i would have read a few more forums turned out it is the button after all according to apple my entire housing needs to be replaced in order to fix this. but i read a forum and as stupid as it sounds pick iMac up turn it upside down then touch the power button and it turns on no problem ugggghhh

My Advice

read forums. bottom line although the parts worked and the install went well. i really didn't need a power supply after all and i don't want to take my iMac apart again to send it back if they would take it back in the first place

My Problem

I dropped my Macbook Pro Mid 2014 during what I assume to be a drunken rampage, since I don't recall how the damage came to be. I assume either my foolish self (or dirty hippie friends) threw my then 4 month-old gorgeous aluminum baby onto the floor and/or wall in a fit of disgust, leaving the bottom righthand corner slightly bent. When I awoke the next day, the colours popping out of my Retina display were slightly brighter from that corner. On a black background, it was apparent that the aluminum casing was pressing on the back of the LCD display. Being the smart man I am, I decided to try and bend it back. I thought it worked until I turned on MBP and saw that the LCD display had cracked into some absolutely lovely lines of dead pixels running up and across from the corner.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well overall. Took around an hour and a half for me, but the display assembly repair probably would have taken 30 minutes if it wasn't for two issues:

1) The T8 screwdriver iFixit sent me didn't work. The metal screwdriver tip was not securely glued into the plastic handle, so I was lucky I had a backup set of Torx drivers.

2) One of the display hinges on the replacement display assembly was slightly bent. I didn't notice it at first when I first installed it, but after closing the lid, it was apparent that the new display did not sit flush with the body of the MBP, having being skewed off a couple of millimetres to one side. My fix for this was having pliers and applying slight pressure onto the hinge to straighten it out. After a couple of rounds of bending the hinge straight, the new display fit on flush and snug, just like new.

My Advice

1. Please check that all your tools are working, and you have access to pliers in case you get a bent display hinge.

2. To check to see if the hinge is bent, look down the length of the metal display hinge rod and see if it is flush & parallel with the outer edge of the display assembly. Compare with your existing display hinge for help. The one I received was slightly off center by a couple of degrees, meaning I had to use pliers to slightly bend it back straight in line with the edge. Be gentle and double check constantly!

3. Don't allow your dirty hippie friends near your MBP whilst drinking. Don't try to be a hero and bend an aluminum display back yourself. And get a case I guess.

My Problem

I closed my screen on a usb cap and had cracked the screen making it pretty unusable.

My Fix

The repair went great, 45 minutes in and out. All is right in the world again.

My Advice

Go to ifixit.com EVERYTIME! They're great!

My Problem

The battery had developed bad cells and wouldn't hold a charge for more than a minute or so. The iPad mini was otherwise intact so it made sense to try and replace the battery.

My Fix

There was a time after removing the LCD that the instructions weren't super clear about separating the LCD from some tape (but that could just be my special brain) but it otherwise went without a hitch.

My Advice

Take your time, don't get frustrated, and don't force things and you'll do fine =]

My Problem

Was having intermittent charge and sync issues with My 4S Doc Connector.

My Fix

Repair was easy with the pictorial repair guide from the website. 1 hour or so is all it took. This was my first repair for this phone.

My Advice

Lay out and tape a big piece of white paper (24" x 24" )to a flat work surface. The tape is so you don't have to worry about catching the paper and shifting all the little screws around by accident. As you take the parts out write on the paper size Ie 1.2mm Phillips etc. and description of part. There is plenty of room to keep the parts separated to help ease any confusion of similar looking screws.

My Problem

Voltage issue with USB port on PC made USB data pin on phone to stop working but charged just fine. Not a problem with wireless adb but while flashing new rom, I mistakenly deleted everything on the phone including the rom zip. I tried everything to get the rom zip on the phone from usb-otb to different cables to battery drains but nothing worked.

My Fix

Having given up, I got a cheap phone. While m7 sat in the closet. Recently, I was cleaning my room and spotted my m7 abandoned it didn't feel right. Decided to get a new m7 usb port and replace the faulty part. Hardest part was taking out the back cover off m7. Replaced the usb and it worked! Finally back from dead.

My Advice

Turns out m7 is really hard to get the back off without damaging the cover so I got $11 back cover replacement. Youtube video on replacing just the usb without removing all the other parts with help of tweezers helped lots. Shipping to Canada is a strange paradox, I want product to arrive fast however if I pay over ~$30USD (~$40CAD) for 2 day fedex shipping, I get charged extra $15CAD by fedex for faster customs passage. And regular delivery takes minimum 1 month and costs ~$15USD (~$20CAD). ifixit needs to update shipping speed and costs to Canada. And oh I got rid of the faulty usb ports on the PC as well, took less than 3 minutes and a Phillips screwdriver.

My Problem

I had dropped my laptop because my dog jumped on my lap and since then the right speaker sounded blown.

My Fix

I took the afternoon of, poured a glass of cold beer and sat down with the patient. Carefully I followed the instruction on the website through my IPad. Using the tools I bought off this site, I operated on my laptop. I took it apart, realized the right speaker was shattered, replaced it and put it all back together.

My Advice

It all worked out wonderfully. Do not be afraid to try to fix things yourself. Be patient, attentive and read out all the instructions before sitting down to do all the steps. It helps and you won't be surprised when everything is ripped open in front of you.

My Problem

2 shattered screens and 2 underperforming batteries..

My Fix

The first screen took a LONG time.. Mostly because it was my first time in the guts of the iPhone..

Second time went much quicker, and easier..

My Advice

When you are at the step removing screws from the corners of the frame of the iPhone - just before you remove the display, go ahead and remove the headphone jack. Removing the jack makes replacing the corner screw next to it ever so much easier..

I also followed another users advice and used a separate small plastic container for each step of the process where something was removed, I then labelled the container so it was easy to go in reverse order to put back together.. The second screen, I already had labelled containers.

Lastly, get a good magnifying device , preferably mounted on arms,so you can more easily see all the tiny components you are dealing with.

My Problem

I repair electronics for a living. The metal double sided spudger has proven to be the most used tool in my shop for cellular and mobile device screen replacement. When we lost the only one we had, I was sad. So I ordered 2 more.

My Fix

Absolutely terrible. The 2 spudgers I received were thick, non flexible and un-usable. I tried calling ifixit to no avail, they have such a terrible phone system you just get hung up on within 2 minutes and they pretend its not them but it is. I tried emailing sales and support, also to no avail!

My Advice

My advice,do not purchase tools from ifixit. The spudgers WERE nice once upon a time, but now they suck. Support for sales is also entirely non existent in my experience.

Anything sold on ifixit.com can be purchased elsewhere without the markup for the name, nor the hassle of no sales support. Reagrds, Phil May, www.northendelectronics.com
