Answer to: Why is my device not charging?Hey mate, You will most likely have to replace the dock connector. You can purchase them for relatively cheap (around 15 dollars shipped.) I have done it myself and it is not a particularly difficult replacement - following the guide linked above is a good step as well. Cheers.
Answer to: How to remove and replace keyboadHey mate, I asked an Apple repair specialist (Authorised Service Provider) about this a while ago, and he informed me there is upwards of 100 screws holding the keyboard in place on the MacBook Pro's. Your only real choice is to purchase a new topcase. Cheers.
Answer to: Home button + Power button doens't work after display replacement?Hey mate, Do the buttons work if you replace the original damaged screen? If so, you need to return the screen you purchased. I would hazard to guess that this could be the issue. If not, let me know. Cheers.
Answer to: Should I replace my iPod's battery, or should I send it in?Hey mate, Before you replace your battery, give your iPod a full restore and set it up as new, then use it for a day. You will probably find that it behaves the way that you would like it - usually it's software which kills the battery and not the actual battery itself. If it is still not appreciably better after a full restore, then you should consult a battery change and judge your skills and consider whether it's better to send it in or to do it yourself. Cheers.
Answer to: MacBook Pro 17 A1261 hight temperature, is normal?Hey mate. A temperature of 40 degrees celsius is completely normal, but the fan should not be booting it at that temperature. A speed of 6.000 RPM should only be achieved with temperatures of 80º celsius or higher. I would recommend resetting the SMC.
Answer to: How to correctly solder power volume flex cable?Hey mate, It depends on how well you soldered. If you cold soldered, a proper connection is not being made. If you bridged the connection (which it sounds like you may have). If you could provide a picture, this would help a lot. Update: Hey Miguel, A cold solder is when the two points you are attempting to solder together are not being heated up enough - only the metal that you melted from your solder got hot enough to melt, and the point you are trying to solder to did not melt. This will result in a very poor connection and generally, it not working. If you could post a picture, this would help.
