My Problem

Fried i-Mac due to massive power surge spike; indication suggested power supply shot.

My Fix

Initially thought PC gone to IT heaven with all my data as had my back up hard drive due to the same event.

Googled and found iFixit YouTube video of pretty geeky bespectacled blonde lady video showing step by step dismantling of the same model iMac. It looked easy enough. Ordered parts and tools from iFixit which arrived exactly one week from US to remote outback Australia.

My Advice

Excited but with trepidation proceeded to emulate video sequence and 20 minutes later ready & hit power button and.....nothing black screen!

Dismayed made a coffee then came back to the machine ready to strip it down again then noticed oopsy power cord not connected! Connected and and switched on voila it worked perfectly.

A big thank you iFixit and geeky blonde lady :)

My Problem

The 5400 RPM HD that comes in the new tapered iMac 21.5" is too slow.

My Fix

Picture perfect.

My Advice

The adhesive strips come with a "pizza cutter" iMac opening tool so you should not have to order the iMac opening tool separately.

My Problem

My iMac was making an annoying humming noise and I was unable to do any home recording without getting a lot of electrical noise

My Fix

It went really smoothly. The directions on fixit.com were really through.

My Advice

But the tools they offer. It would have been much harder without the tools.

My Problem

I hear a sound behind the screen. A powerful sizzling ... I know that noise is the sound of a dead power supply.

My Fix

I followed step by step the tutorial with the right tools. And I did not encounter any major problems.

My Advice

Oh yes ... Do this in a very very clean place, with clean hands and a vacuum dust cleaner. It's not worth paying hundreds of dollars in an Apple Store, if you are not too stupid, all will be fine

My Problem

My PSU in my 2006 iMac g5 burnt out 3 years ago while I was plugging it in. There was a tiny spark and the thing wouldn't turn on. It was too old to get it repaired by Apple.

My Fix

It took about an hour to get disassembled. Once I did that, I promptly realized there was manufacturer error and had to call and get a new PSU sent out. They were very helpful on the phone and the service way exceptional. Shipping took like 2 seconds. Not literally but it was really fast.

While I was disassembling I was at the part where you disconnect the SATA cable. Apparently it's really easy to rip right off the board and then you are out of luck forever since it has to be soldered back on meticulously. The internet and my local Mac repair shop said it's not worth it to even try to fix.

Putting the PSU in was easy and putting it back together took probably 30 minutes. It powered right up beautifully. Of course it can't read the hard drive so after that it just blinks a flashing folder icon with a question mark in it.

Only after all that did I see there was a guide to replace the PSU without taking the whole thing apart. HAHA OOPS.

Conclusion, I fixed the PSU successfully. The guide was really good, the part worked great and then I broke my iMac forever in a different way. The End.

My Advice

Don't break your iMac while you're fixing it.

Try to do the shortcut of replacing the PSU first.

If you feel you must take the whole thing apart, be VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY careful with the SATA cable disconnection. It was EXTREMELY hard for me to unplug even with a spludger and instructions so I thought maybe I'd give it a little tug since the other cables seemed to need a little force to disconnect. That's where I went wrong and it just ripped away from the board completely.

Also, if you DO break your SATA cable off you can run your iMac off an external drive.

My Problem

Replaced the hard drive in an iMac - tried to upgrade to Yosemite and received the error message that there were some SMART problems with the drive and to replace it - tech tried but had problems with fan - got the number of correct HD from WD and bought from Amazon and installed myself.

My Fix

Easy as pie.

My Advice

Downloaded Yosemite via Internet - worked fine and then would not reboot - am still working on it - understand that there may be a problem with programs starting up on the login - many are having problems with glitches with Yosemite - might want to hold off until Apple perfects Yosemite

My Problem

There was an issue with the original HD that came with the computer.

My Fix

The repair went very well even though some parts had to be modified for the two SSD to be installed.

My Advice

I wish that they would have instructions for the steps in reverse.

My Problem

Was experiencing drive errors and read / write issues

My Fix

The repair went well. Was a little intimidating at first (never opened up an iMac before) but was able to locate a video tutorial and it worked like a dream. Well, a somewhat reoccurring dream as I had to open the iMac up two more times in order to get the new drive aligned properly so the discs would eject. Seems there was a slight variation with the replacement drive I ordered (from another vendor as iFixit was out of stock of the model I needed at the time) which required some "fine tuning" of the drive carrier (i.e.: cutting off two small plastic nubs). After that, all worked as planned. Thanks iFixit for the great tools and service.

My Advice

Make sure you order the exact drive for your model. And be patient when installing. Oh, and a magnetic torx wrench would be a good idea. Those pesky little screws tend to be attracted to the magnets in the iMac case. Makes for a challenging reassembly.

My Problem

The problem was I listened to my computer experts in the repair business. Approximately 3 months after my warranty on IMAX ran out my computer completely shut down. Being most computer illiterate and needing it for my business I immediately took my IMAX into the computer experts, a high profile computer business in my neck of the woods. Upon their detailed (?) investigation I was told it was my hard drive and possibly my power supply and to fix it would NOT be worth it. However they would be more than happy to sell me a new one and would do me a favour of disposing of my IMAX for me. Something bother me about their unprofessional approach. I bought another computer (not an IMAX and not from them) and I took my IMAX home placed it on my desk and swore I would look at it when I had time. How hard can this be? That was March 2013!

I have just found time to look at this IMAX and my research led me to iFixit….after viewing their site I order a new power supply and upgraded hard drive….covering all the bases!

My Fix

I had been told how difficult it was to repair a flat screen IMAX by the computer repair shop. Their advise was so self serving. Installing A NEW HARD DRIVE AND POWER SUPPLY WAS SO SIMPLE, it also returned to me my IMAX at a more than reasonable cost. I took the original hard drive to another shop and determined that there was nothing wrong with my hard drive…it now is a 1T external hard drive to my IMAX giving me 3T of memory. My enthusiasm has also led me to install an additional 8 meg. of RAM….even easier to do.

My Advice

If going to a computer shop make sure the computer shop has a technician that actually knows something about apple products. So many have experienced PCs and think they are MAX experts as well. NOT! ...iFixit made my repairs a piece of cake and at a very reasonable cost. If I can do it anybody can!

My Problem

Hard drive quit working

My Fix

Guide helped repair to go very smoothly

My Advice

A link in the repair guides on how to partition and install OS X, or restore from backup would be helpful. It was kind of hard to find on the website by navigating through several pages. It was easier to find thru a Google search
