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!

Stories

My Problem

This is my first time in disassemble my acer laptop and the reason I wanted to disassemble it is because my laptop keep heating up easily even when my laptop at idle and reach 90+ degree Celsius when gaming while before is just around 80+ degree Celsius when gaming.

My Fix

While this is my first experience in disassembling laptop and I was so excited to see how it looks like inside the whole laptop. Eventhough I'm excited to do it myself, I also felt a bit nervous and scare of messing things up but still I think it might be a good idea to learn something new and I finally decided to start disassemble it. I have loosen all the screws one by one and remove all drives and rams, taken out the motherboard and acquired the heat sink. the dust inside the fan was stuck in between all the fan blades and the thermal compound had been dried out. So, I cleaned all the fan blades and remove the old thermal compound and reapplied new thermal compound and reassemble it back. While reassembling my laptop, I also felt a bit uneasiness but after finish reassemble it, I quickly plug in my laptop charger and turn on my laptop. I feel extremely happy when I saw my laptop booted up. It was a great experience for me to do all this things by my own.

My Advice

My first enlightenment was my mum that keep supporting me to have a try when I first told my mum about it. The build logs cleaning guides in Youtube Channel especially Linus Tech Tips enlighten me to do it my own when I saw them building, disassemble and reassemble PCs by their own and showing off those cool stuffs.

My Problem

The 5400RPM HDD had seen better days. It was slow, slow, slow. Also installed a total of 4GB of Ram. It now performs like a much newer system. I think we have a couple more years of productive use from it.

My Fix

The repair went very smooth. Since I had the Pro Tech Toolkit, all the steps where easy as I had the right tool for the job.

My Advice

When an upgrade like this is being done, I would suggest that you put a recommendation to use some compressed air and dust out the cooling fan while it's all apart. I always do that when ever I open a machine up.

My Problem

My 24'' iMac hard drive went crazy and began a phase of advanced autodestruction.

My Fix

The guide is really precise and easy to follow. Some steps are a bit more technical, but the comments help with tips&tricks.

My Advice

Don't hesitate to lever the front panel of the iMac (without pulling too hard on the camera wire), because the bottom of the panel (close to the RAM slot) has a "C" shape that holds the things together.

My Problem

My Macbookpro would not power on. The charger was constantly Orange.

My Fix

I replaced the battery with a new one(which took all of 15 mins)and it fired right up!!!

My Advice

My advice is make sure you read the tutorials on the ifixit site. Go through it in your head what you want to do. After you have read them and have a clear understanding of the work involved, then start.

My Problem

Had a broken screen on an iPod touch and messed up battery on iPhone 6.

My Fix

The iPhone went flawless the iPod was slightly more difficult but i got it.

My Advice

Be careful with soldered battery pins when fixing iPod haha

My Problem

My friend spilled coffee on her MacBook Pro. She had tried to clean it up by inverting it and drying it with a hairdryer before I got my hands on it and before I got my IFixit tool kit.

My Fix

The bad news: while it turned on again after I had opened it and done my best to clean it up, the keyboard was pooched and the logic board was compromised.

The good news: With your outstanding online instructions, I was able to remove her hard drive, transfer all her data to a new MacBook Air, and use the old MacBook Pro hard drive for backing up. I've also salvaged the screen, memory chips, battery and other internal parts to sell online to subsidize the cost of the new MacBook Air.

My Advice

Before this coffee catastrophe, I didn't know IFixit existed, much less your simply perfect tool kit and your brilliant online videos and step by step instructions for just about every repair. I'm an educator myself, and this is exactly what I love to do with my students: give them the encouragement, guidance and tools to master the material they need to know. Fantastic!

My Problem

after a head butt to my closed Macbook Pro (don't ask), the right half of the screen had gone wonky.

My Fix

I was being overly cautious but still had it powered back up and working within the hour.

My Advice

during reassembly, reconnecting the 3 Airport / Camera wires (step 5) was really frustrating. just take your time reconnecting those three and don't force them.

the hinges on my replacement assembly were tight. absolutely impossible to open up by hand. if that's common, ifixit might want to add a small pair of needle nose pliers to the tools section (or a better recommendation if there is one).

My Problem

Recently I dropped my Nexus 6 and shattered the screen. This, in and of itself, is unusual. Every smartphone I have ever had had a case and a screen protector, and dropping it simply resulted in me having to pick it up. But with this phone I wanted to take care of it in a different way, and I bought this wallet[1] to consolidate all of the crap I carry around with me. I figured that the only time I'd have it out of the wallet is if I was actually using it. But I'm apparently lazy, and had the phone in my lap while driving home. By the time I got home I forgot it was there and just got out, which of course ejected the phone out onto the concrete, shattering the screen from the bottom right corner where it impacted.

My Fix

So after looking up how much it costs to replace the screen I made my first mistake, assumed that I was both smart enough and handy enough to replace only the glass. The glass piece itself isn't terribly expensive, and I believed that I could replace only the glass. So I ordered the piece, did research on how to do it, and quickly panicked, cancelled the order and got a refund.

Next I ordered the screen and digitizer http://www.etradesupply.com/motorola-nex... along with an iFixit Pro Tech Toolkit so I'd have everything I'd basically ever need for any other repairs that might be necessary in the future. Then I bought the Spigen Slim Armor case because I had one for my Nexus 5 which worked very well for me. My wife's response http://i.imgur.com/OMGMpVY.jpg was just hilarious.

After following the teardown guide https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Nexus+6+... I quickly realized I didn't need to tear apart the battery side of the phone and let it be. After disconnecting the motherboard from the display assembly via the two ZIF connectors https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Recognizing... , I was able to pull the two apart. This left me in a state of utter confusion as to how to proceed. The screen and digitizer replacement had nothing attached to it other than the cables mentioned above. The wide one is for the display and the small one is for the touch screen. Make sure it is attached straight or you won't be able to use your phone at all. Ask me how I know this. Since the display replacement had no assembly attached to it you have to reuse the one on the broken display. Use a spudger to separate the outer ring of plastic that houses the bolt holes. Carefully lift the metal interior and the plastic ring away from the broken screen and be sure to inspect it for any glass shards. I missed one until I tried to put it all back together and it kept it from closing all the way. Once the metal is gone, you'll notice that the back of the display has a foam layer glued to it that protects it from the metal. This is imperative to retrieve. Use a blow dryer or heat gun to loosen the bond of the adhesive, and gently peel it back, removing it in its entirety. Don't let it fold up on itself. Place this backing on your new display, exactly as it was on the old. The adhesive for the plastic ring won't hold anymore, so get some Scotch super glue http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009F3... and apply a drop to a cotton swab and brush the inner sides of the display outer glass layer, which will be in contact with the plastic ring. Combine the ring, metal assembly, and display and hold it all together for 30 seconds or so. This process of reusing the assembly is a bit of meticulous work but will save you about $80. Reconnect the ZIF connections carefully to the motherboard and follow the teardown in reverse to finish putting it back together. One step they miss, however, is that in addition to the battery connection in the bottom right of the phone, on the top left is the connection for the physical buttons on the side. Remove the rubber cover and snap the ribbon cable that leads there back into place. You won't be able to power on your phone if you skip this step. Replace the rubber button cable cover and align the back cover and push it down to adhere the back of the phone once more to its innards. For the moment of truth, press the power button and pray to the old gods and the new that your phone turns on. Once it powers up, go gloat about your repair prowess to the next three people that you see. That's what I did, anyway.

My success is evidenced but the fact that I took this picture found below and typed this post using my fixed phone. It's not impossible. You can do it.

My Advice

ZIF connectors are finicky. Be super careful both when you're opening them and when you're reinserting the cables. Make sure both rubber hidden doors have the cables plugged in afterwards.

My Problem

The trackpad on my wife's 2011 Macbook Air started suffering from phantom clicks and was basically useless and in need of replacement.

My Fix

Once i had the right tools the repair went extremely quick.

My Advice

A Torx bit is not the same as a pentalobe. No matter how hard you try to make it work

My Problem

Needed a tool kit that could allow me to work on specific computer equipment.

My Fix

Excellent. Exactly what I needed.

My Advice

This is a great tool kit with everything you need for working on Apple laptops.
