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

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.

My Problem

My wife inherited a 32gb iPhone 3GS that we decided to sell on eBay, but the battery was basically shot.

My Fix

The battery replacement went great, thanks to your video and guide, and the phone works like new. (Sorry, but I forgot to take a photo.)

My Advice

The ribbon cable connector (labeled #3) from the display panel is a bit tricky and delicate. An eye loupe or good magnifier would be useful to get a good look at it to see how it works before pushing and prying.

My Problem

My battery of my MacBook pro and the charge port of my iPhone 5

My Fix

I started with my Macbook pro that was simple. Then came the nurve racking part my iPhone 5. This is my daily driver and can't really afford a new phone at the moment. I was a little bit nurvese but I went foward and did my best. Taking the logic board was the hardest part. Second came putting the screen back.

My Advice

There are some parts of the charge port that you need to transfer that the guid does not tell you. Like the grounding wire that goes around the headphone jack. The little fome that is around the mic

My Problem

The problem I had with my camera was that I pointed a green laser into the lens and burnt it. Was a great idea to see all the beautiful colors on the screen but not such a good idea afterwards. After I did some research and found out that the high frequency light had damaged my camera lens I felt embarrassed :)

My Fix

So I began with ordering the wrong part. I somehow managed to order the iPhone 5 rear camera instead of the 5c. So thanks to the helpful lads at iFixit they set up RMA for me to return it and I ordered the right one.

The repair itself went well and quick. I've changed parts on some iPhone 4's and 4s before but the 5c was a lot more straight forward.

I also like to add that the Pro Tech Toolkit that I purchased with the part is by far the best precision toolkit I've had.

My Advice

Well the advice. Just beware of the front assembly cables that connect to the MB at the top of the unit when you lift up the screen. From there it's pretty much easy.

My Problem

Upgrading my Macbook Pro from 4g to 8g RAM. Replaced my old HDD with a new SSD.

My Fix

Repair went great. The tool kit I got from ifixit was really nice.

My Advice

Wish I knew about ifixit a few years ago.

My Problem

With iFixit guide and tools - i am ready for any job. Even iFixit is on my iPad lol Good to go!!

My Fix

The very new mac series i need help from iFixit guide and other then that i am good. However even hidden security nuts don't makes me nuts any more!! lol iFixit toolkit ready for it. Recommend it to all my tech members!

My Advice

well i failed with Mac mini and macbook air and macbook pro unlock. because iFixit does not have T6 Security Screws yet. Also toolkit that i purchase does not have t6 security screws, so i had to purchase from amazon.com / Other then that toolkit have every thing that i need and toolkit quality are 10 / 10 max point. best of best toolkit ever i use.!!!! recommend it!!!

My Problem

My son's macbook air started having an issue charging. You had to play around with the placement of the magsafe plug. Sometimes it would charge sometimes it wouldn't. After searching the web about solutions, I bought the I/O board from iFixit, along with the necessary tools, followed the excellent directions on iFixit, and now his air charges like it should.

My Fix

Very easy using iFixit guides.

My Advice

Read through iFixit guides before starting the repair, so when following the directions you have an idea of what you are doing.

I used a vegetable tray to keep all the right screws and parts together, with a piece of paper telling me what the parts are, and where the screws came from.

My Problem

Some one spilled something on the 3DS and the shoulder button on the right side was sticking.

My Fix

Sadly I stripped the screw before I decided to order the kit so the repair did not go well, hardly the kits fault which is fantastic.

My Advice

Wait for the proper tools for a job, rushing without the proper tools could lead to trouble.

My Problem

I bought the kit for my son for Christmas. It was a late gift but worth the wait. I'm not sure what he fixed, but he told me he's used it several times.

My Fix

The tools were exactly what he needed.

My Advice

He was amazed at the tools in the kit. He now has everything he needs to fix phones as well as other gadgets.
