My Problem

My battery was running at around 50% of its designed capacity, so it was time for a change.

My Fix

The repair wasn't too difficult, being careful and following the instructions. Getting the battery out was the biggest pain in the neck, as I kept heating the rear part of the case in hopes of loosening up the adhesive.

My Advice

I would suggest using a tool to keep the back of the case warm, as removal of the adhesive was the most difficult and time-consuming element of the repair.

Additionally, nearly all of the screws are of different lengths, so I read some great advice to label the screws by step number and length to ensure that you use the correct screw when re-assembling the phone.

My Problem

My old battery lasted not even a few minutes even though it was fully charged.

My Fix

It was quite an easy repair along with the great tools iFixit provided with the battery replacement and it was really quick and nothing too technical that the average repairer can't do.

My Advice

If you intend to do this repair yourself, it is well worth purchasing the tools to help you do the repair successfully and more easily with the risk of damage.

My Problem

My son shattered his screen again and I was sick of paying $100-$200 to fix it. Also Batteries Plus glass is the worst junk ever. It literally cracked in my hands when the woman handed it back to me in the store, just from the pressure of holding it by the corner with my thumb and first finger. So they gave me a warranty repair, and THAT cracked in my son's extra thick kids foam case the FIRST night (this same case kept the original glass in tact through almost two years of daily dropping, throwing and standing on it) bottom line: this glass so far is WAYYY better than batteries plus glass.

My Fix

Repair went well. It's kind of weird that the instructions didn't tell me how to fix it, they just told me how to take it apart..? I would have liked some advice on putting the thing back together instead of just "Follow these steps backwards". I mean, that's what you guys specialize in , right? Installing a new part?

Anyway, it works, I'm happy, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME with those screws? Why are there like 20 just to hold the shield on?! Jeez they're tiny, and the magnets on the side keep sucking them out of my tweezers when I try to put them back. I hope the kids in china that make these are getting paid a PRETTY penny to put this stuff together in the first place.

My Advice

The digitizer cable seems too long. That can be remedied by gently accordion folding it into the little pocket of space available, but what makes that difficult is that the adhesive on the screen grabs the cable and prevents it from folding where it needs to. I recommend not removing the adhesive covering until you've actually tried to place the screen so that you can see what kind of bend you need.

Another revelation I had - Batteries plus had repaired this ipad for me once before, and they didn't replace any of the tape or padding and even some screws were missing, so... if you want something done right, DIY!

My Problem

My iPad Air's Front Panel glass was completely shattered - there were lots of 'glass dusts' which were created due to the shattered panel so I had to wrap the device with the clear vinyl for emergency measures.

Luckily the LCD was not damaged, and the touch was working, but I seriously needed a repair.

My Fix

The repair process was relatively easy (except the part where you have to take the screen off).

Taking out the broken panel was very tedious and rigorous (I recommend you to have a lot of time spent on it) and the adhesive won't let the screen come off that easily.

I used the ifixit's iOpener kit and that helped alot.

After taking those out, the replacement process was easy - just follow the instruction and you will have it.

My Advice

Taking the original (broken) panel is the most difficult and most time consuming part of the repairing process. Take your time fully to get every single piece of glasses off the device.

If you happen to have glass dusts on LCD, do not panic, I used a hair dryer to get the dusts off and used tissues and one of the those handkercheifs that I got with the glasses from eye stores. (They are very effective especially removing the smudges from your hands if you accidently happen to make one).

Just take your time removing the dust and don't push the tissue or the handkercheif hard - swipe them smoothly multiple times until you are satisfied.

My Problem

Battery would not last through the day

My Fix

Used the ifixit video. Battery was glued down more than I would of expected it to be but eventually got it out.

Magnetized screw driver is not as helpful as tweezers when replacing the screws. They kept flipping upside down when trying to put them back in.

My Advice

watch the video first

My Problem

My Iphone 5s developed a microphone issue after a few months of use. I couldn't be heard when making a phone call unless I used my speakerphone. I tried dealing with my cellphone carrier on a repair or replacement as it was under warranty. They sent me a "like new" replacement however this "new" phone had more problems then my original. They said they had to work out the replacement phone issues with Apple Care next, otherwise there is nothing else they can do for me. To make a long story short, I told them to pound sand and returned the replacement phone and switched back to my iPhone 4s for the time being. One day I decided I really want to get back to my 5s so I looked into repairing it and found this website.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well. The step by step guide was a big help, wouldn't have tried it without it. The guide was missing a couple steps at the end of the tear down however. There are two more parts that need to be removed from the original lightning connector and headphone jack assembly. There is a small bracket that the home button connection is glued to that has to be removed and installed on the replacement, and the microphone has a small rubber boot around it that has to removed and installed over the replacement microphone. Likely through my research another reviewer point this out so I didn't miss it. Otherwise the repair went just fine with the guide. I was a little mad that the required flat headed screwdriver was mentioned in the guide but not included in the required tools list. I was able to make a screwdriver I had work but I would have liked to have the right size for the job. The only mistakes I had were I got a connector that was next to the battery stuck under the logic board when I was reassembling and didn't notice until I had the board all screwed down. So I had to removed the logic board twice but likely there was no damage. I also had a hard time getting the home button reconnected as the small amount of adhesive wouldn't stick after being removed from the original connector. And I couldn't for the life of me get the securing clip for the home button connection to hook on to the metal hooks on the backside of the connector. I could only snap it in the front which with a little pull pops it out. I spent a good hour trying to hook this clip and ended up just snapping it in the front and putting the phone back together. Not too worried as everything is pretty tight in the phone and its not coming apart again unless something else dies. Overall, I'm glad I decided to purchased the parts and tools and make the repair. Phone is working just like new now.

My Advice

My advice would to purchase all the required tools mentioned in the guide including the flat head screwdriver (2.5mm?). The screws are UNBELIEVABLY small and need these designed magnetic screwdrivers to make it work. Also you will be wise to lay out the steps requiring removal of parts and screws on a piece of paper with some clear or white tape to stick the small parts to so you don't lose them during the repair. Also helps you lay out the screws in order so you don't mix them up when it comes time to reassemble. The website sells a magnetic white board for this purchase if you are only doing the one repair then so some paper and tape work just fine. Also I would advise to just take your time and don't force anything. It took me probably 5 hours from start to finish with 1 hour wasted with trying to hook that clip securing the home button connection. The only thing I wished I had known before I did the repair was about needing the flat head screwdriver, partly my fault as it was mentioned in the guide but wasn't in the tools list so I didn't purchase it, next time I will buy it.

My Problem

That was my eldest kid's phone which had a broken lightining connector and a unnusable camera. I got the chance to change the old battery for a new one too, since it had almost 3 years of use.

My Fix

It was relatively easy to open and disassemble the iPhone, though I had some trouble to reassemble it. I had to reopen the phone cause the digitizer cable wasn't correctly connected, but in the end everything went perfect.

My Advice

Please pay strict attention to the disassemble steps, lest you can get caught with cables you don't know where to connect. And would be important to alert people that the spare parts are different from the originals.

My Problem

Charger stopped working.

My Fix

Repair took about 30 minutes. Everything was by the instructions. My only problem was getting the antenna connector back on. Finally snapped in.

My Advice

Easy repair, which saved the cost of a new phone. Checked online and there are many sites with less expensive replacements. Reading the reviews however, it seemed like a lot of people had some kind of trouble afterwards. Decided to spend the extra $ to get an actual S4 part.

My Problem

I had a battery issue in my MacBook Pro. I removed the battery using the tri-point and a few hours later, my girlfriend who is attending college 6 hours away informed me that she had a battery issue in her MacBook, too. I decided to ship the screwdriver I had to her so that she could use it at her leisure and order me a new one.

My Fix

Since it was a battery issue and since it was Apple, I ended up making an appt with the Genius Bar to get an OEM battery straight from Apple. The only way that I am aware of to get my hands on an OEM battery. When you pay more than $2,000 for a laptop, I don't want an $80 knock-off damaging it. The repair ended uneventfully...after waiting a week for an appt that suited me, they replaced it for $125.

My Advice

Everything went pretty smooth. The Apple store was understanding. I had to remove the battery to get the laptop booted back up so I could take an image of my hard drive. The end-result was mostly, I had to get my data and send my tri-point to my girlfriend...so I bought myself another one. Advice, by two of these if you have more than one MacBook in your circle :)

My Problem

My phone would only keep a charge for 2 hours and would go dead. My home button had to be pressed several times to work.

When I saw the ifixit website and how easy the instructions were to repair, I thought I need to try this.

My Fix

The repair went great! The instructions were given step-by-step and were so easy to follow. The tools that I order were very inexpensive and worth the purchase. I now have a phone that will last me a lot longer and I paid a fraction of would it would have cost to do an insurance claim or send it somewhere to be fixed.

My Advice

Watch the instructions carefully before you start the step-by-step process. Make sure the screws that you take out are put on a piece of paper that is labeled as to where you took these screws out. That way you will not get mixed up to which screws go where.
