Since I was a kid, I have been taking things apart to get a closer look at their inner workings, especially mechanical and electronic devices.
I have a background in media design and a Bachelor of Engineering in Audio-Visual Media.
I joined iFixit Europe in 2014 as a customer service representative, supported our European event management by planning and attending several maker fairs and repair cafés.
Since starting the European content team in 2016, I am once again focusing on taking things apart by documenting device disassemblies for teardowns and repair guides.

Rispondi a "My touch screen doesn't seem to be working on my Samsung Active2 watch"Hi gary & chris, you might want to check if the display connector sits properly on the motherboard or see if there is any dirt or remnants of water inside the watch which may affect the touch function of the display. See this back cover guide to get inside. The top connector in the last image is the display. Also you can read this thread (Samsung forum) on water damage on Galaxy watches for more background information. If still under warranty from Samsung you may be eligible for a replacement or repair.

Rispondi a "Black Screen Display even when turned on"The watch is usually rated IP68 and can withstand 5ATM. If you wait for a few more days we’ll publish some guides that could help you get into the watch and check for any kind of damage. Maybe you can even repair it. Stay tuned.
Rispondi a "The watch was left in the sun and the back came off."Sounds like the battery could be swollen and pushing the back off. The watch has four screws on the back which makes me wonder how bad it might look inside to make it come off. Just hold on a few more days and we’ll publish guides for opening the watch and replacing the battery as well as taking the core assembly out. If you want to try yourself before you’ll need a Tripoint Y00 screwdriver / bit to get the back cover off.
Rispondi a "Where should I drill the hole"If still interested in drilling into the AirTag, check the Teardown.
Rispondi a "My watch face won't turn on now"You could try and hard-reboot the watch by pushing the bottom button for at least 7 seconds and see if that gets the display working again.
Rispondi a "Specs on the "button covers" (tactile domes)?"Hi Jeff, we have a guide in the making for replacing the D-pad. It should be live soon. There you’ll be able to see the build of the D-pad and can experiment with different “mods” to it. In the meantime you could bend the metal spring that pushes the pad back up to your liking or you might want to add a thin extra layer between the pad and its rubber part so the connectors on the rubber part make contact with less travel. Good luck with finding the sweet spot and think about sharing any findings for others to learn and improve their gamepad from.

Rispondi a "The number keys on my numeric panel stop working randomly, help?"Did you check the side panel if it connects properly (magnets lock in place) or tried to clean the contacts and the touching surfaces between the module and the mouse body (See hints in the troubleshooting wiki) Razer Naga Trinity Troubleshooting
Rispondi a "Broken screen Fitbit Sense"Hi, the display can be replaced. It ’s the first thing out when opening the watch. Although it is quite cumbersome to get it open.
Rispondi a "Water proofing after repair"As long as the rubber gasket is undamaged the watch should remain its water resistance. Check out our opening procedure for that.
