Even if you don't have anything to fix yourself, you can still fix other people's things! Cell phone repair is a booming self-starting business. Students, stay-at-home parents, and entrepreneurs are all joining in to fix phones for their friends and locals, while making good profit for themselves. Apple sold 37 million iPhones in the 4-month holiday season of 2011, and while many of those phones get fixed every day, even more are simply thrown out. With the help of this tool kit, you could be making those phones run like new. By the time you’ve fixed five phones, this kit will have paid for itself!

You don’t have to be a repair technician to find this kit useful. This kit is also great for anyone who has a phones, tablets, and laptops around the house. Our 54 bit toolkit and the various poking, prodding, opening, measuring, and grabbing tools that come with it will keep all your home’s electronics in working order.

This kit is great even for non-electronics. The small bits are great for doorknobs, eyeglasses, cabinet doors, sink fixtures, and more. If you are looking for a great addition to an artists or hobbyist's tool chest, look no further. The prying tools are great for sculpting clay and other materials.

In addition to our thousands of repair professional and home tinkering customers, this kit has become very popular with domestic and international top secret intelligence agencies with three-letter names we can’t name here. Oh, and we’ve also sold kits to some computer company named after a fruit (not a pear or orange) and many of their competitors use the kits internally.

My Problem

I have a MacBook Pro 13 inch that started to have a serious performance problem. Like all troubleshooting processes start with memory. So I increase to 8GB from 4. That didn't seem to be the problem. Next upgraded the hard drive to an SSD that didn't work there was something I was missing so I tried different hard drives and noticed that I couldn't get the drives to install OSX. Verified the drives that were working by installing them direct through USB put them into the MBP and nothing was happen still. That left the ribbon cable or controller. Of course if the controller was having problems then the existing hard drive wouldn't even work but it did a bit slow. Purchased the hard drive cable plugged it in and voila super fast SSD speed hard drive. The complete troubleshooting process took me like a couple of weeks.

My Fix

Simply follow the instructions on iFix and with very little to no pain, the pain being having to deal with those small screws. The installation went with out any problems.

My Advice

Invest in a better tool kit. That's why I bought also the Pro Tech Toolkit. By the way an excellent tool kit to have around. I was using a bunch of different tools not necessary design for replacing a MacBook Pro.

My Problem

The computer had started shutting down randomly.

My Fix

With no prior experience, I used ifixit's website and youtube video to help me repair the iMac. It worked!

My Advice

Watch for falling rocks.

My Problem

The screen was about to go FUBAR.

My Fix

Ordered the White display assembly for my Space Grey model. Took around an hour or two to change the screen. First time doing it, but the instructions were straight forward. If you follow the guide step by step you shouldn't have any issues. Plus everything from the front facing camera to the Touch ID are fully functional.

My Advice

If you have a White/Gold iPhone model, maybe try the Space Grey display assembly. Vice versa for the Space Grey model.

If anything do this job in an area which provides you adequate working space. I repaired my phone in a coffee shop, so the risk of pieces disappearing were quite high.

My Problem

I had this SSD for a little while, but I knew that i didn't want to get rid of my old hard drive. And after discovering this procedure, I knew I had a new mission. 756GB sounds better than 500GB, anyway; and I knew about SSD speed sweetness.

Plus, I kinda knew that i wouldn't miss having the optical drive readily accessible in exchange for the additional space. I've also never liked the sound that the optical drive does when turning on the computer... (minor thing, i know)

My Fix

Repair went well, but I did hit a roadblock that I was able to avoid with another non-ifixit tool that I already had with me. In step 11, where it says to remove the three screws that holed the opti drive, the ifixit philips screwdriver from the Pro Tech kit wouldn't fit through to reach the screw closest to the HDD. So, I had to use another similar screwdriver with a thinner/longer stem to reach it. Other than that, the procedure went swimmingly.

My Advice

This is a good exercise in following instructions, and whenever there are comments from other fixers, doesn't hurt to review them as they may have some info that it's easily avoidable. For example, I almost overlooked the step about the screws to secure the HDD to the optibay cradle; that wouldn't have been good.

Not all screws are tightened the same, so pay attention to that. And have a compressed air can handy because it's certain that you'll find some dust nastiness... Goes without saying that you should be very careful while dusting inside your computer... perhaps look up some safety tips!

My Problem

I had an IPhone 5 before my IPhone 6, but while I was playing basketball my phone fell out of my pocket and shatter my screen. I try to sell it but i wanted to fix it first so I took it to Mexico City and paid around 800 MXN (around 50 USD) to fix my phone and everything worked great until suddlently my phone died out of nowhere it wouldnt even turn on, and while it was connected to current only the apple logo showed up and was stuck in a boot loop. I decided to take manners into my own hand and bought the Pro Tech Toolkit (even though 30 USD for shippement seemed a little high *cough* IFixIt *cough* fix the price *cough*

My Fix

I opened it and well well, the battery connector was disconnected!! they probably stole my original battery and put in a really crappy one and forgot to connect it right, so I reconnected it and everything worked great. I also used the kit to fix an old Xbox controller I had laying around but thats is another story for another day.

My Advice

Never take your smartphones to fix in Mexico, they might be cheap but in the end you might have to spend a little more for being lazy (like me)

My Problem

To avoid costly repairs and learn my machine.

My Fix

With all the tools, removing back screws was a cinch as your screwdriver heads were tiny enough for the tiny screws, magnetized, and I could spin the body of the screwdriver because you make the head swivel while I kept slight pressure on the top.

My Advice

Preferential to iFix-it tools because they are designed for this work. I wish I had these tools when I used to be a TV repairman years ago.

My Problem

Hard drive full

My Fix

less than 1 hour

My Advice

Excellent tools and instructions. So easy to follow and so much fun. I'd forgotten how cool it is to repair a computer.

My Problem

The factory Seagate 3tb hd died.

My Fix

The iMac opening tool was perfect and the adhesive strips are top quality. The little blue tabs made it very easy to strip of the backing. They are also cut to fit perfectly, unlike the generic strips some companies sell.

My Advice

I used an HGST enterprise 4tb drive. I've had great luck with the HGST drives. This machine has the Fusion drive. Disk Utility recognized the new drive and automatically reconfigured the Fusion to the new drive. No command line required.

Also used the OWC cable to enable the iMac to get drive temp to properly control fan speed.

My Problem

One day, my roommate's desk lamp stopped working. When the switch was set to the on position the lamp failed to illuminate. We had a hunch. The problem could either be the bulb or the transformer brick. The bulb was simple to remove and after I swapped his lamp bulb with my lamp bulb, and saw that his bulb worked in my lamp but my bulb didn't work in his lamp, we were able to further isolate the problem–the brick.

My Fix

A friend and I who is equally passionate about handling, fixing ,and simply tinkering with electronics got down to work. We unplugged the lamp and set the brick, the Pro Tech Toolkit and the Magnetic Project Mat on a work desk with plenty of space. Then we got down to business. We removed the 4 philips head screws that held the two halves of the transformer casing together, and viola! There it was. The exposed transformer coil and soft iron core were in full view. The core looked fine but before we handled it we took some safety measures. We weren't sure if there was a capacitor hidden somewhere in the device, so I got the static discharge band and grounded the whole component by placing the discharge point on multiple positions. After that, we inspected the transformer even closer, and what did we find? Salt deposits all over the interior of the soft iron core and the secondary winding. We had our answer.

The entire transformer assembly had short circuited. My roommates shoes from walking out in the snow were lined with snow and ice salt deposits. Then he would sit at his desk and rest his foot on the ledge that was coincidentally over the transformer brick. Salt water would drip into the transformer (the brick has wedged oppenings) and then went on to short the assembly. Yikes.

My Advice

Don't track your snow boots into your dorm room. Leave them outside or by the door.
