My Problem

Could not load discs into the Wii.

My Fix

Followed video advise on removing the drive.

My Advice

The plastic disc ejection mechanism simply was misaligned. I re aligned the ejection mechanism and put it back together. Everything working great so far.

My Problem

After 6 years of use battery was almost exhausted, lasting less than an hour.

My Fix

Replacing the batter was pretty easy. Especially if you have done things like RAM or Hard Disk replacements. Just needs care and attention.

My Advice

Just be careful and attentive. It's pretty straightforward

My Problem

The cursor had been responding to not only my touches but also to hand movements when there was no contact with the pad.

The click function seemed to be erratic, sometimes several taps were required.

I imagined fur balls and roving colonies gumming the magic works below the pad.

My Fix

Th repair took not quite an hour from the time the package arrived to when the cats were allowed back on the dining room table where the work was performed.

There was much less debris under the old pad and in the case than I had expected.

I found one of the battery hold down tabs shattered as tough it had been crushed on assembly.the plastic fell away as I loosened and removed its screw. I used one of the metal tabs supplied for pad installation as a "washer" when reinstalling the battery.

The pad now responds with a crisp click, the cursor moves predictably and is no longer channeling the gestures of ghosts.

My Advice

Feed the cats before working in their space.

Keep a clear tape dispenser nearby. I make a sketch of the screw layout and tape the tiny parts to the drawing.

Tape was useful in extracting shards of plastic that fell from the broken battery tab.

A narrow strip of paper inserted in through the chassis helped guide the pad's wire ribbon up over the circuit board.The paper was removed once the ribbon found its path.

My Problem

Original battery started to swell which affected the track pad.

My Fix

I watched the video on how to change the battery before buying the new one. The battery, spudger and screwdrivers arrived within a few days and replacing it took less than five minutes. It was easier than I thought it would be.

My Advice

Don't be afraid to do repairs that are fairly simple and straight forward. IFIXIT provides all the support and and technical assistance you need with written instructions, video and live person assistance. Even if you think a repair is beyond your capability, I suggest contacting contacting IFIXIT before taking your device in for repair.

My Problem

My laptop battery had lost its performance for recent years down to it can only last for 1 hour but I still used it and did not paying attention that the battery had swollen so bad until one day it cracked up my track pad. So I guess a battery change is a must to be done.

My Fix

The steps and the video are really helpfull, very easy to be followed. Overall it was pretty easy fix and my laptop works fine just right after the battery change.

My Advice

The spudger and the Y1 tri-wing screwdriver are very essential, but the 00 screwdriver didn't work because it was too big for the screws on the back case.

My Problem

battery was dead and magsafe board failed

My Fix

everything was great, i had 1 screw stripped from a previous repair but it wasn't too much of an issue and i broke 1 speaker connector , but that speaker was already blown and will be replaced once i can afford it.

My Advice

be very gentle with the speaker connectors, they really are delicate.

My Problem

Battery not functional any longer needed to replace battery

My Fix

So easy! I was nervous but I asked my friend who used to work at the Apple store and said it was super easy just remember where the screws go. I had to do it so I did it, super quick and easy.

My Advice

Follow the guide! It was so easy and great!

My Problem

The battery was no longer charging.

My Fix

Everything went without a hitch. The guide on the ifixit website helped out a lot as well as Youtube videos.

My Advice

When screwing back the bottom plate the screws on the side must be screwed in at a slight angle to prevent stripping.

My Problem

After six years, my battery could barely hold a charge.

My Fix

The repair took ten minutes, and was super easy thanks to the tools I bought along with a replacement battery. The instructions for how to replace the battery were very clear, and everything's been great since!

My Advice

You absolutely have the ability to undertake this repair. It couldn't be simpler.

My Problem

My mid-2009 Mac Book Pro was running so slowly that is was useless. After a little research I figured I could up the ram from 2GB to 8GB. Wow! What a difference. My Mac Book functions like new. This is a worthy upgrade and an easy one. You pop off the back cover and the ram is held in place by a couple of clips.

I also purchased the Y1 Tri-Wing screwdriver and it worked flawlessly to remove the battery. I had previously purchased on on Ebay and it just didn't work. Avoid the ones on Ebay and buy it here.

The next thing I need to replace is my track pad which is no longer recognizes clicks.

Overall I am pleased with my Macbook but I have had to put some money into it. So far, I've purchased a new battery, new hard drive, ram and we can add track pad to the list.

My Fix

The repair was easy, straightforward and worth it.

My Advice

If you mac is running slow, consider a ram upgrade. If you need to replace the battery, get the tri-wing screwdriver.
