iFixit

5/5

Replaced my own MacBook Air battery

Many viewers will think 62 is old, so I'm including my age in this review. I've had a home office since 1991, so am not a total novice when it comes to tech. But I can't remember ever taking the back off a computer! IFixit instructions were excellent. Two caveats: I wish there had been a small note inside the box directing me to the website for instructions. But I figured that out and they were great. After installing my battery and turning on my MacBook Air, I got the dreaded three beeps of death (have had before). Every article I found pointed to faulty RAM, cleaning RAM slots etc. I really had to dig until finding the one that struck me with, "aha, that's it". It was from a writer who recognized that the battery needed to be charged more to boot, recommending fully charging, then retrying. That's what I did, but instead of doing a combo of command option P R, (which didn't work), I used command option R with Power and I got the opening chime. It then reinstalled the OS, then reverted back to all my settings.
