My Problem

A friend asked me to make an upgrade to his Nintendo GameCube. He asked for an addition of a "Xeno-GC" driver chip.

My Fix

The GameCube case needs to be opened with a proprietary "GameBit" driver. Aside from that tool, I only needed to use two smaller Phillips drivers to disassemble every major assembly within the console. Soldering such small points required some attention to detail. Technicians should not expect to be in and out within ten minutes. Small solder points are easy to accidentally overflow onto adjacent points. I did misstep while soldering and had to undo my work. When I purchased a GameBit driver, I also ordered some solder wick. I'm glad that I did. I had to clean up a little extra sloppy solder.

My Advice

If I were to attempt this upgrade again, I would make more effort to mount the driver board onto a stand that would hold the board level. Ensuring that the driver chip is positioned correctly is one of the most essential steps to this upgrade.

My Problem

The Macbook Pro was working really slow. My first thought was a failing harddrive, so i took it out, at did a test, no error. Then i thought it might be that ribbon cable. Since i live far away, i wanted to order from ifkxit because of my previous success with them. It took only 6 days to receive the package ( which is pretty impressive by the way), and everything was of course in order :)

My Fix

I replaced the part, and everything is working properly. The customer has paid, and we both are happy with the fix

My Advice

If these Macbook Pro's are working really slowly, pay close attention to that ribbon cable. I have expeienced it quite often that the issue is with the cable and not the harddrive it self.

My Problem

We repair many iPads/mini's and many have dented corners.

We are looking forward to using the GTool to help us with these repairs

My Fix

So far so good

My Advice

Take your time, check and double check to make sure you have everything in it's right place.

My Problem

only 2 year old Kindle Fire . . . not charging

My Fix

Not well - found problem, but wasn't able to fix it.

My Advice

Don't buy a Kindle Fire!

My Problem

The battery would no longer hold a charge and needed replacement.

My Fix

I followed the directions to the letter and had no problems. Good eyesight was a must as the soldering is very detailed. Being older I had to use a lighted magnifying glass several times to see exactly what I was doing with the soldering tool. This was the first time I had ever used desoldering braid and was very impressed with how it worked.

My Advice

Take it slow and easy and don't rush yourself. Follow the directions step by step. Take your time.

My Problem

I have been an electronics repairman for years and just began a new journey to open my own wireless repair facility and needed a few tools. I came across an article about another cellular repair shop using IFIXIT.com tool kits and when I looked into it I found the kits had exactly what I was looking for at the right prices.

My Fix

The tools work excellent and are made of good quality materials. I have not yet run into a wireless device the toolkit does not have the right tool for. Thank You for an excellent product.

My Advice

Use professional grade tools from a professional company like IFIXIT.com.. Great customer service, resources and materials!!!

My Problem

I teach an ipad repair class to a group of 8th graders. This order was just to replace some tools. We are going to give the isesamo tool a try. Our best tool so far has been a metal spudger. It has a triangular end an a curve spatula end. You sell one that looks like it but the spatula end is to dull to get between the glass and bezel. I hope the isesamo tool does the trick. We will repair a couple hundred iPads this year and your tools are indispensable.

My Fix

We have not had a chance yet to give the tools a run. I am sure they will be just fine.

My Advice

Find a supplier of sharper metal spudgers

My Problem

The battery had been failing for some time, getting weaker every day at the end.

My Fix

Not much to tell. I followed iFixit's guide for replacing the battery in a 1st gen iPod Touch. Each step went just as the Guide stated. And I succeeded!

My Advice

Just follow the Guide. This is my third use of iFixit's guides for diverse electronic repairs. And each time the guide lead me to success.

My Problem

I purchased the tools to use at my volunteer "job". Our group of GE retirees gifted more than 650 donated computers last year. All computers and other equipment are given to any qualified non-profit organization that requests one or many computers. Read about our group and the process for requesting computers at computerrehab.org. The 54 piece Driver Kit is a second kit that I own. Although there are duplicate bits in the two kits, there are many bits in the second kit that are not included in the original kit.

My Fix

Most of our repairs are successful, having the right tool makes the access and disassembly much easier. Our failures and obsolete equipment end up being stripped and recycled. We raise several thousand dollars a year from recycled copper, aluminum, motherboards, CPU's and memory boards. Most of the dollars are used to purchase hard drives, printer cartridges, batteries and tools.

My Advice

Any repair job is much easier when the right tool is available. i believe that one should buy the best quality tool that is affordable.

My Problem
