Batteries expanding on old MacBooksI've seen quite a few MacBooks/macbook pros from 2010-2011 with batteries where one of the cells expands to the point of...
How do I take apart the Mini Jambox?Does anyone know how to take the mini jambox apart?
How to replace speakers?I need to know if it is possible to replace the speakers in these headphones, and if so, how?
Answer to "How do I fix my laptop?"The SMC reset is (left side) option-control-shift and the power button all at the same time with the charger plugged in. If this doesn't help, you'd need to replace the logic board.
Answer to "HDMI output not working"You can try resetting the system software, but other than that, the only solution would be to replace the motherboard.
Answer to "How can I fix my Ipad it's on Activation Lock"You'll need to enter the password of the iCloud account that was used to set up the activation lock. If you don't know it, you can reset it if it's your account. If it's not your account, try to contact the account owner. If you can't do any of those things, you won't be able to activate it or use it. Best you can do with it is part it out and sell the components in it other than the display.
Answer to "Replace it with 16GB To 32GB logic board"If you transfer the logic board and Touch ID cable together, it should work. However, based on the colors of your phones, if you put the 32 GB board in the gold phone, you'd have to take the silver Touch ID sensor with it, which would create a mismatch. If you want to buy another 32 GB logic board to replace the 16 GB logic board, you won't be able to keep Touch ID functionality.
Answer to "changed battery then the phone won't work ever"Check that the battery cable is properly connected and that the connectors on the cable and logic board are damaged. Also, check all the other cables and connectors on the logic board. It's also possible you received a defective battery. Try plugging it into iTunes, if iTunes can see it then it's most likely just that the display is improperly connected.
Answer to "My ipad 2 is trying but cannot download IOS 9.3.5 -"Plug it into a computer and use iTunes to update or restore it.
Answer to "TouchID not working after rear camera replacement"First, put the original Touch ID button and ribbon back in the phone. That's the only way to get the Touch ID functionality back. I'd also try running a restore from a computer.
Answer to "Does the rev number matter on the usb ribbon cable"It shouldn't be an issue, yours is probably just faulty.
Answer to "Leaks when making soda"iFixit doesn't carry them; I'd check with Sodastream to see if they sell a replacement. You might have some luck in taking the gasket to a hardware store and see if they have a similar gasket.
Answer to "My Fitbit went nuts (flashing all settings) and then stopped working"Unfortunately, the fitbits are, for all intents and purposes, unrepairable. Your best bet would be Fitbit support (it won't be under warranty because you brought it deep into a lake, otherwise you should just buy a new one.
