My Problem

My friend did not want to tackle it.

My Fix

Took my time, followed the you tube video. It came out very well. I can see how practice would make it quite easy.

My Advice

Watch the video through several times before starting repair, then have it beside you and start and stop as you proceed. TAKE YOUR TIME!

My Problem

My issue was a weak battery, the battery wouldn't hold a charge for more than an hour or so.

My Fix

I followed each step to the letter and I had no problems removing or re-installing the battery.

My Advice

I had to perform a factory reset due to a completely white screen upon initial power up. I found a video online on how to do said reset, I think I held down the home and power buttons for 10 seconds or so and voila! Also don't use a razor to scrape off the old glue or you'll end up scraping of some of the black paint off. Despite the mishap with the paint and the reset everything works great.

My Problem

A friend of mine offered to give me her broken iPhone if I could get her pictures off of it for her. I run a local computer/electronic repair shop, and I hadn't had a project like this before, but I decided I would give it a shot.

My Fix

I followed the walkthrough on ifixit, and the repair went very smoothly. Just take your time and follow the instructions, they work perfectly. The only problem that I had, though, is that the I started taking the phone apart via the GSM guide, and got about 10 steps in before I realized that I was using the wrong guide (I needed a CDMA guide). Maybe we could get a bit clearer indication of which device is featured in circumstances like these, where devices are very similar. Other than that, excellent service ifixit.com, you guys are fantastic. Repair took about 2 hours if I remember correctly.

My Advice

The magnetic project mat was invaluable, I would suggest it to anyone who works with small electronic parts. Just take it easy and make sure you give yourself plenty of time.

My Problem

My buddy stepped on his iPod Touch 4G and thought he was going to do the repair himself. Unfortunately, the overseas company he ordered his replacement screen from did not include the adhesive strips and he had no idea how much was involved on the 4G. I offered to do it for him.

My Fix

The repair went well... As usual, your tear downs and project walkthrough .pdfs were my ace in the hole. He's happy to have his iPod running again.

My Advice

I will say that if I had to do a 4G touch again, I'd advise to purchase the mid-frame just because all that glue scraping meant it was a little ratty looking by time I was through. It's ok, though.

Also, the copper cooling strip (I'm guessing) for the main camera is super fragile and that point is made... just a few steps too late in the walkthrough. lol. That's me being nit picky, though.

Overall.. a big win. Thanks, iFixit!

My Problem

Clicking the home button would do nothing, no click feel, no click action.

My Fix

Be ready to work in a lilliputian world! Would definitely be much simpler if done again. I put it all back together and still no click action. Turns out the electronic sensor had been pushed back into the board a bit. Opened the iPod again, added a thin shim to the back of the button, and all works well now.

My Advice

Be careful when removing the old glue from the back of the iPod Touch's glass. The "blacking" can be scraped off very easily, even with a thumbnail. Rub, don't scrape, that old glue away!

My Problem

Screen shattered.

My Fix

Repair went well using the guides. Keep the screws in order! The ribbon cable you connect on the underside of the logic board is tricky but it WILL snap into place, be patient. The adhesive templates can be ambiguous; note that the small square cut outs are removed to make holes to avoid covering screws and components.

My Advice

When pressing the screen back into the unit, do not press too hard. You run the risk of damaging a portion of the screen. If you are lined up and you press firmly, the adhesive will do the rest, so be sure to scrape off the old stuff and install the new adhesive properly.

My Problem

Fixed my daughter's IPOD touch 4g using a lcd and digitizer from another vendor (cheaper) and the adhesive strips and manual from IFixit

My Fix

It was tougher than fixing the IPHONE. I've fixed several cracked screens on iPhones (3gs) but never a IPOD touch. with some patients (waiting for the hair dryer to melt the glue) and the Ifix picts. The repair went ok

My Advice

none.... Just to head the warning in the Ifix directions. Very delicate wires within the IPOD

My Problem

Shattered screen but still working.

My Fix

Nice; got the infamous white screen at first but a reset of the screen plug and good to go.

My Advice

Read through the guide a couple times first. I later found some advice to salvage the little block that spaces the more internal screen connection.

My Problem

15 year old boy, iPod touch gets a shattered screen. Depression & devastation ensues.

My Fix

I gave the boy the screen and the URL to ifixit instructions and waited anxiously. Watching his face when it came back to life was priceless.

My Advice

Seriously, just breath and follow the directions. Slow & steady.

My Problem

my son dropped his Ipod and shattered the glass about 2 month after i i bough it for him.

My Fix

removing the shattered glass from the unit was not an easy task but with patients i managed to do it.

My Advice

be real careful when removing the broken glass and also be real real careful when prying the glass from the sides it could brake the small little edges that are plastic.
