New Life for my 4th Generation iPod

by gigantorpdx

My Problem

Battery was not holding charge for any length of time. My 4th generation iPod, was in great working condition, but it was not holding a charge for more then a half an hour.

My Fix

Replacing the battery was very easy, the video and information on this site was right on. I was able to replace the battery with 15 minutes.

My Advice

Trying to route the wires underneath the safety circuit was very difficult.....make sure that you take you time so as not to damage any components on the PCA. I would recommend purchasing a spudger tool to help in routing the wires.
