If you’re looking at Rubik’s Cube solutions and your case does not correspond to any of those represented, then your cube in unsolvable.

## Why there are Rubik’s Cubes that can’t be solved

Most of the times, the Rubik’s Cube becomes unsolvable because someone, intentionally or unintentionally, takes one or more pieces out of the cube. If the piece is now put back in the cube in a different position or orientation, the cube will now be impossible to solve.

## How to fix the Rubik’s Cube

In order to fix the cube, you need to take out the pieces that are not properly in place and put them back so that the cube is fully solved. Therefore, it is advisable to solve most of the cube, so you don’t have to remove and replace so many pieces.

To take out the pieces of the cube, turn 45 degrees one face (see photo). Put a thumb on each edge and make pressure in opposite directions.

Once you have taken out an edge, it’s easy to take out the rest of the pieces you need to change. Now, put the pieces back in the cube, but this time in the correct position. Finally, you have to insert the last edge with a face rotated 45 degrees (just like you did to take it out).

You can now scramble the Rubik’s cube and you will be able to solve it! (if you know how, hehe)

My cube isn’t coming apart!!!!!!!!!! WHY?!?!?!

Maybe you may need to make a little bit more pressure.

same

Take a small flat screw and use it instead of your finger that’s what I need to do

some rubiks cubes don’t come apart like mine

how do you know where to move the pieces to?

You should put the cube in the solved position.

Wouldn’t my cube break? My cubes brand is D-Fantix. I can’t get it the correct order to solve. It keeps saying do this do that and I’ve kept trying but it still doesn’t work.

Which one do you pull out How do you know?

Any one will work

Twist top layer 45%then pry open any centre piece

im strong and my cube is like super glued together

Try harder, change the stickers or buy a new cube: https://thecube.guru/buy-best-rubiks-cube/

Man what happened to me is that once I bought my cube I was able to solve it 30-40 times, and out of the blue I was not able to solve it anymore because 1 corner peace (yellow blue and green in my case) was not in the right place (everything else was). How is that even possible, to became unsolvable (nothing was taken out) after I solved it so many times? Do you know what was the problem?

Hello, Igor. Sometimes the centerpieces have so little pression that the corners can rotate without moving from their own position.

I have never taken apart the cube and it came assembled correctly, but still have one piece out of place. I didn’t pull it apart, but tried to and notice the colors are in the corresponding position. I noticed the comment above had a similar problem. Does it still need to be taken apart?

you can twist it, it takes a bit of pressure and it’ll feel like its gonna pop, but it wont.

Use a screwdriver

This kept happening on one of my cubes, only one. Your observation helped me out a lot. I didn’t realize the corner was rotating during speed solves. I never knew it could turn so easy. One single corner can flip. Thanks for your advice.

your corner twisted i think

My cube is mixed up so I have no idea which one is messed up how do I figure this out

Try to solve it as much as you can, until you find the pieces that you need to move.

Is any try to solve the unsolvable with out piece taken apart?

No, you have to take the pieces apart. That’s why it is unsolvable.

Another possibility would be to change the stickers, but afterwards they would not stick well to the cube.

i solved mine already like 5 mins before this then i got this so how is it now unsolvable?

Are you sure that your case is not in the solutions?

my cube is lent from my dad he says I can’t take it apart bcause it will get damaged, but it is unsolvable!!

if you dont want your cube to be damaged, then buy another one.

If your cube has a decent quality (almost all of them), it won’t be damaged at all.

Thanks Diego.My unsolvable cube is finally solved!

Congratulations!

How if it completely brakes apart?

You have to be a little bit careful, but normally the plastic is resistant.

I have seen people solve my cube but i can’t I used a cube solver and it said that my cube was taken apart

Perfect solution and perfect cube finally!!! Thank you so much!!! 2 pieces had fallen out when the cub got stuck, and I had to pull out the pieces due to having only 1 corner incorrectly oriented. Now that the cube is fixed, I will be able to solve it using all your steps without pulling out any piece in future. You rock, cool cat, cheers :)

I’m using a Void Rubik’s Cube, which means it has no center pieces, and when I mix it up, and try to solve, two corners are swapped while everything else is solved. Then, I mix it up again and do solve again, and it somehow works. Can anybody explain this? I can’t move any pieces without taking it apart.

did anyone find a solution? I have the same problem.

Yesss!!! Solved the cube without pulling out any pieces this time. Thank you so much :)

BTW, is there any trick to memorize the moves, I am not able to retain the algos :(

It’s not coming apart

i solved my cube by turning the corner pieces at last……it was solved then……is it correct to do it

My rubix cube’s corner for the first layers dont orient , there like the the opposite way

thank u soooo much it worked

Im dumb

What if the corners still don’t match. I accidently dropped and the core split and I put back together and the corners won’t line even when you try to align them

how do you get center pieces out?

I have a 4×4 cube and everything is solved correct except the last two corners. They’re switched around. I know for a 3×3 that it would be unsolvable but is it the same for the 4×4?

In the third layer i have solved the cross.. And the 2 layers too but the 2 neighbouring corners are at right place and the other 2 are’nt. So just tell me how to swap neighbouring corners..and i know the cube js solvable cuz it was already solved when it came

Thanks, it helps a lot to fix my new cube

My rukics cube is out of order. From previous comments one of the corners must have gotten rotated. Which one, and which direction? I need a web page that will not only guide me to solve, but if impossible, guide me to fix it

WHY DOESNT IT WORK!! My cubes brand are D-Fantix. I read the instructions over and over again and kept trying with the cube! It still doesn’t work!! I don’t think the cube can come apart because I pulled on one side and I looked in but it didn’t look like I could pull it apart. I’m also not very strong

I read all the Reply’s nothing helps

If you simply (i say simoly with the lightest of meaning) flip the sides. i swapped yellow/white once and came uo with 2 crazy pieces. the way it solved initially was with 4 crazy pieces on the permutation that would not solve no matter what i did. then i just double check to make sure once i “know” where white and yellow are i have all the other colors in the right spot. solve. still 2 permutation sides messed up. so i roated the colors and moved the white to a position on the right instead of simply swapping with yellow (as i would get the same results again if i just flipped yellow and white again). i solved and … boom everything in place. it took a while to figure out but i didnt have to take it apart. i didnt want to drive myself crazy. also for those who need to take it apart and dont know how…. every center piece has a screw. just unscrew all of it and put each side back in the right place. its easy. use your finger nail to remove the centers. hope this helps as well

Thanks, this article helped me solve my rubik’s cube, one of the corners of which was accidentally twisted by my infant :)

Hi I have a 4* 4 Rubik cube which is now unsolvable shall I too do the same trick or there is any thing else that i can do

mine is not solved so i dont know where is the cube thats turn ( 100% good english)
