My Problem

The left headphone was getting no audio.

My Fix

Smooth. The only issue was the small clamp which held down the wiring to the side of the battery, it came off but went back on with a pair of tweezers without a fuss. Now I have extended the life of my 8 year old Ipod and learned some confidence with electronics!

My Advice

Give it a try, you will come away with more than a fixed device when you are done!

My Problem

No sound was coming out of my iPod 5th Gen 80G, and I Didn't want to buy a new product

My Fix

went well, but the product (Ipod 5th gen 80Gb) didn't work after the replacement, as the issue came from the logic board, and not the headphone jack that I just bought

My Advice

would be nice to know how to repair the "sound related" defects on the logic board of the iPod 5th gen 80G.

My Problem

The famous Ipod no right channel sound problem with a defective (ie worn-out) headphone socket.

My Fix

It went surprisingly well. The slides did help, even though when I opened my Ipod, it seemed to look a bit different. Nevertheless. What didn't work was the 00 screwdriver, for the very tiny black screws. It was simply too big, did not catch. The screw is so tiny that I finally used a pointy tweezer of my girlfriend's. 3$ out of pocket, but that's okay. My Ipod is 7 years old and has been around the world about 7 times, so I could accept the fact that 2 of the screws - when screwing back in - did not catch. I left it as it is, and it seems to work. The space is crammed enough to keep the on/off switch in place. Kudos to the designers/engineers; it is amazing how the fit all that stuff into this restricted space Happy camper, me. I have thousands of rare songs on my Ipod and really would have hated to lose it.

My Advice

Try it. In all likelihood you will succeed; and you will feel proud. Much better than frustrated at losing the Ipod!

My Problem

The ipod ended up having a faulty headphone jack. It would only play out of one ear.

My Fix

It wen't pretty well, the toughest part was cracking the metal panel off, but after that it was smooth sailing. It took me about 40 minutes in total to open change out the jack and snap it back shut.

My Advice

The photos weren't too clear initially for the opening the ipod.

I actually found opening the ipod from the side to be an easier start. Locate the locking pin on either the left or right side of the ipod start closest to the bottom/Click wheel. Then work your way up.

My Problem

The headphone jack was obviously defect. At the same time I decided to replace the battery as it was loosing charge to fast.

My Fix

It went quite OK. The trickiest was to get the switch at the right position and to get it to stay there. I had to open it again to correct the switch. Now all is OK!

My Advice

Check the switch operation and positioning. And be shure to have the correct screwdriver!

My Problem

My headphone jack busted. I can't commute without my iPod!

My Fix

The repair went without a hitch. I had seen a video on YouTube about how to replace the jack, so when I got in there, it was straight forward. Took maybe 20-30 minutes.

My Advice

I definitely recommend you get the plastic opening tools. Also, make sure you use a magnetic screwdriver. The screws holding the headphone jack are tiny, any it's difficult to get them in place by hand.

My Problem

The headphone jack was broken. Only the left side had a signal.

My Fix

Easy as pie.

My Advice

iFixit could not have made the process any easier or any more convenient. You have quite a robust business model on your hands. Cheers.
