My Problem

Battery would not stay charged.

My Fix

Getting the case open was the hardest part. I wish the tools had two ends. They wore out quickly. After the case was open the repair went pretty fast. I have a lot of soldering experience and that helped. Reassembly was easy.

My Advice

I did not remove the logic board to unsolder the old leads from the holes and insert the new leads in the holes. Rather I just left the board in, unsoldered the old battery leads and tacked the new ones on using the existing solder. Worked fine!

My Problem

Replacing failed SSD

My Fix

Everything went well. Only Sony should have found better speaker covers (current ones may tear or require gluing back) as you access screws or better still screws could have been installed elsewhere. The only issue I now face is lack of sound from internal speaker/headphones. After reinstalling a fresh copy of Windows 8.1 i downloaded from Microsoft because I don't have an original recovery disc. The speaker icon is muted and when i hover it says "No output device is installed" Tried to install drivers from Sony site nothing happens. Troubleshoot says could not find any audio services. Is it possible i disturbed the sound card? Out of curiosity, where is the sound card located and what is the role of the yellow flexible flat cable above the ssd? BTW I can play music via a wireless speaker. I would appreciate any help regarding the same

My Advice

Remember to keep track (label) of the screws as you disassemble because they are of different lengths. Ensure you separate the ones used outside and inside.

My Problem

Change LCD and Digitiser.

My Fix

Owwww, such a pain to dig in those Z3 parts. All packed together and tiny. Must have : Tweezers.

And got the new screen from a Chinese company, cheap quality. Fake colour and screen cracked with slight pressure.

My Advice

Be very careful and patient.

My Problem

mic and dock connector were full of dust and dirt.

My Fix

it went quite well

My Advice

be very careful with the plugs

My Problem

Phone would suddenly die at 45% charge, and charge would drop quickly.

My Fix

Very smoothly. Couldn't have done it without the terrific guide and tools from ifixit.

My Advice

Take your time, follow the directions. Be sure to a heck the power cable (from battery) location before adding the adhesive tape.

My Problem

one leg wasnt working right i didnt want to get another jester

My Fix

disconnected the leg plugs from another dino now he works just fine

My Advice

check the leg wheels for any dirt

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.
