Anyone who knows me knows I like making things work so the discovery that iFixit is publishing all of its repair manuals free of charge is like an early Christmas present. I am also a believer in reading and using the manual so it’s particularly useful to me. There is of course a sensible priority to how to fix things.
1. What was the last thing you did or changed that may affect the function of the piece of equipment?
2. Is there power to the item?
3. Look at it – is there anything obvious like screws missing, wires or plugs pulled out?
After these basic checks you may need to read the manual before proceeding.
So thank you iFixit, once the formalities are over, your freely available reading matter for the Apple products will make my life easier should anything of mine break down or require an upgrade. While I’m singing your praise – could you make it easier for me to take apart my Mac Mini?
