My Problem

battery - get rid of it or so just risk it?

My Fix

Complex, needed 3 trials covering about 3 hours total. First the connection of the battery did not work, then the selector did not respond ...

My Advice

Patience, as the reward is big. Try to check each step via function before putting everything back together. I do listen to music via iPOD again!!!

My Problem

I bought my iPod 5 years ago and it began to have battery problem 5 months ago.

After one day of use, it ran out of battery... It was illogic for me to buy another one as it was working very well (if you ignore this *** battery !)

My Fix

NO PROBLEM, except the soldering part. I asked a friend of mine, who was more experienced to solder very small electronics.

Desassembling and reassembling was quite easy :) but quite long (4 hours I would say...) but it was the first time for me in doing such a repair !

My Advice

If you don't have any experience in soldering, please find someone around you that does. Use a solder for very small electronics pieces (20w maxi)

My Problem

The battery wasn't holding a charge and so I thought I would fix it rather than toss it and replace it.

My Fix

This did not go well. I did get the iPod apart and had no real problem attaching the new battery despite the fact that the solder connections are so small. However, reassembly was difficult, perhaps because of a very small bulge in the battery, that made reinsertion impossible. I had it working when apart, but could not get it back together. When sliding the LCD in or out I cut the cord for the hold switch, then I noticed a crack in the screen, and to top it off the motherboard assembly separated into two pieces.

My Advice

Don't do it. I know my limits now, and these devices are just not worth the time and effort to repair. I'm not even going to attempt to replace the front of my iPod classic now. However, I will replace the broken mirror on my car, since that is something I know I can handle.
