My Problem

My computer didn't turn on. I took it to an Apple Store. They told me that this Machine is a Dinosaur. they didn't have the part and didn't gave me warranty if the part is not original.

My Fix

I start looking on the internet how can I repair the computer. Then I see a video on youtube. I place the order, the order arrives the exact day it say in the order. Everything in the box was in perfect condition. While I watch the video I was doing all step by step. In about 18 minutes I have my computer back and working perfectly.

My Advice

IFIXIT is very trustable. The videos are very specific on the screws, cables, everything. I am a Pastor and My wife is a Grapphic Artist, all our work was in that computer, was very frustrating when the people from MAC told us nothing can be done. Thks IFIXIT, we have everything back and working perfectly.

My Problem

My cat knocked over my MacBook Pro 13", completely destroying the display.

My Fix

Repair was simple and easy with the use of the ifixit guide. Total time to remove and install displays 35 minutes. I have a moderate understanding of fixing pc's and have replace screens before. How ever I was nervous with my first Mac replacement, I found the guide to be easily read and understood for any skill set.

My Advice

Read guide a couple times first, patience is a virtue. Also helps to have proper tools for the job. I had a refrigerator photo magnet that I turned over and used to store all screws.

My Problem

Studying hard. Left macbook pro on arm of couch (knowing I shouldn't, but did it anyway) in order to grab my 50lb textbook which was a few feet out of arms reach. Falling macbook pro (~1 year old). Cracked screen. Rainbow coloured wonders with horizontal lines.

My Fix

Excellent. ifixit screens were out of stock when I needed mine, but I ordered the handy screwdrivers from here and bought a screen elsewhere. The guide for the replacement was perfect. Straightforward, great pictures. Successful repair. Macbook is like new! Thanks, ifixit.

My Advice

Follow ifixit guides and you should be good to go! Hardest parts were reconnecting three cables to airport board and reseating the display connector tab. But a little patience and steady hands did the trick.

My Problem

My 2009 iMac 24 inch 250 gig failed. I got it checkout with the Geek Squad at Best Buy and was told the Hard drive was the problem. So I bought a new iMac 21 inch, for about $1300.00. I was told about IFIXIT.com by the Geek who said NOT to try to use YOUTUBE because I could get some bad advise but to check out IFIXIT.com. I thought I would try to fix it with IFIXIT.com and save my old IMAC as a backup or resale it if I could fix it.

My Fix

The repair was SUPER easy for me! I ordered all the tools and the new 1T Hard drive from IFIXIT.com after I reviewed my exact IMAC on the IFIXIT.com website. I am fairly capable of taking electronics apart and repairing most simple items if I have the proper step by step instructions and photos as a guide.

The repair was so easy for me because I took my time, had a good clean working space, and allowed plenty of time to do the repair. I was not in any rush because I first got my new IMAC up and running great while I waited for the IFIXIT.com parts to arrive in two days. So now I have a new working IMAC with all my transferred data and programs.

Next I started the old IMAC repair after reviewing the instructions clearly two different times so I could understand the process well in my mind.

My Advice

As a word of advise. Take pictures of your repair before and after each IFIXIT.com step with your cell phone. Tag each picture with a step number by putting a "POST IT" note in each picture frame. Mark all wires with different colored electric tape so you can remember( i.e. red taped wire to red taped connector, blue taped wire to blue taped connector etc.)

Use your ipad or other computer to reference back to each step while making the repair. And finally use small plastic or foam drinking cups to put the tiny screws into marking each cup with a sharpie marker. Label each cup step # (?) (i.e. glass frame screws 10 screws or Hard Drive screws 4 screws.) Make sure you know which screws go where! For example long screws and short screws will go into different holes that look the same.

My Advice

Model number for apple interim products should be more specific!

My Problem

I broke my macbook screen on a very dumb accident, the outside of the screen was perfect not a single scratch on it.

But when I turn on my macbook you can notice on the screen a huge crack that covers half of it.

I could never believe how fragile this laptop screen really is, so i will be more careful with it in the future.

And original screen replacement would cost double of what i paid to do it myself by buying everything from iFixit.

I was desperate to fix the screen when my accident happened, and the display was not available for almost three weeks on the ifixit website.

So i looked at other cheaper displays that are sold on ebay, but i didn't trust any of the items i saw there.

Finally when the item was back on stock i ordered it from i fix it.

Then my package arrived and at the moment i opened the package and check the inside of the package.

I was so glad on the decision i made to wait and buy the parts from i fixit.

The wrapping was so perfectly done so that the screen wouldn't suffer any damages from the transportation.

I just noticed that the screen doesn't have any protection when is not installed on the computer so it is more fragile to transport.

My Fix

The replacement guide from your website was very detail and perfect for a none experienced person to follow it.

I strongly suggest that anyone that needs to replace a macbook screen should buy the all parts and tools from the iFixIt website.

My Advice

The P5 pentalobe that i purchased from the iFixIt store is very delicate and doesn't reach all the depth of the screw hole.

You have to be extremely careful not to damage the screws from the outside. And if you damage the outside screws you will not be able to start the teardown.

Please improve the quality of the pentalobe tip so that it has a better fit on the apple outside case screws.

My Problem

Fully dead desktop computer. (Perhaps only "mostly dead").

My Fix

I watched the video of the repair a couple of times so I would feel comfortable taking this machine apart, then started the repair. I have to say, this was perfectly accurate for my machine, not just general advice! This was by far the best experience of this kind I have had. Thank you for your careful attention to the details that an untrained person might not catch. Very good tools, and the part fit just right. It fired up on the first try and this gave my older iMac some extended life for sure. Keep this up! I'll be back for more repair advice and parts in the future.

My Advice

Trust this company, they're first class folks.

My Problem

i'm very hapy it's 500 Go large now and I get both Yosemite and Mountain Lion

My Fix

My Problem

My hard drive had completely crashed, needed to replace.

My Fix

It was quick and easy, other than one hiccup in that my drive was a Seagate and I had ordered a Western Digital accidentally. However, iFixit was great about sending me the right drive, and I have sent back the prior one.

My Advice

It appears some people have problems with the temperature sensor. I found that by properly marking the wires, I had no issue reinstalling the heat sensor cable and having no issues with the fan. Again, felt the whole process was very easy and quick.

Also, to restore the drive with Mac OS X, luckily had been regularly backing up with Time Machine to a NAS, and so it was really easy to restore from a time machine image.

My Problem

I dropped my Macbook Pro Mid 2014 during what I assume to be a drunken rampage, since I don't recall how the damage came to be. I assume either my foolish self (or dirty hippie friends) threw my then 4 month-old gorgeous aluminum baby onto the floor and/or wall in a fit of disgust, leaving the bottom righthand corner slightly bent. When I awoke the next day, the colours popping out of my Retina display were slightly brighter from that corner. On a black background, it was apparent that the aluminum casing was pressing on the back of the LCD display. Being the smart man I am, I decided to try and bend it back. I thought it worked until I turned on MBP and saw that the LCD display had cracked into some absolutely lovely lines of dead pixels running up and across from the corner.

My Fix

The repair went pretty well overall. Took around an hour and a half for me, but the display assembly repair probably would have taken 30 minutes if it wasn't for two issues:

1) The T8 screwdriver iFixit sent me didn't work. The metal screwdriver tip was not securely glued into the plastic handle, so I was lucky I had a backup set of Torx drivers.

2) One of the display hinges on the replacement display assembly was slightly bent. I didn't notice it at first when I first installed it, but after closing the lid, it was apparent that the new display did not sit flush with the body of the MBP, having being skewed off a couple of millimetres to one side. My fix for this was having pliers and applying slight pressure onto the hinge to straighten it out. After a couple of rounds of bending the hinge straight, the new display fit on flush and snug, just like new.

My Advice

1. Please check that all your tools are working, and you have access to pliers in case you get a bent display hinge.

2. To check to see if the hinge is bent, look down the length of the metal display hinge rod and see if it is flush & parallel with the outer edge of the display assembly. Compare with your existing display hinge for help. The one I received was slightly off center by a couple of degrees, meaning I had to use pliers to slightly bend it back straight in line with the edge. Be gentle and double check constantly!

3. Don't allow your dirty hippie friends near your MBP whilst drinking. Don't try to be a hero and bend an aluminum display back yourself. And get a case I guess.
