My daughter in law found this in her dresser drawer, it had been in there since 2008. Why didn't you just return it I asked? I dunno can you fix it? So now it is important that I fix it. The it seems to be a dead battery...
I had prepared myself for the difficult removal of the back cover. But really I didn't understand what I was dealing with in releasing the bind of the tiny spring clips and the hold those little bastards have on the back cover. Look at the pics of the tools I used to get them to release! Looking at them afterward I think I could do a better job next time and not bruise my hands in the process.. So about 30 minutes have elapsed since starting this project. desoldering was challenging because of the rather tiny wires and solder pads, but a jewelers loop helped tremendously. another 5-10 minutes pass. Battery removal was easy compared to my iphone 4s (adhesively speaking). Soldering the wires and worring that I was getting everything to hot didn't take long so the project took about 50 minutes to complete and it worked flawlessly.
Order a new back cover if you don't need it, sell it on ebay.

As all Kids, mine also love elektronics. But loving also means taking care. And taking care also means repairing them: themselves.
It is not the first time we repaired an iPhone, but we realized last time, that good tools, are half the way.
We use YouTube Videos for instruction. that is sufficient.

I liked the youtube videos on how to open today's throwaway toys (celphones and tablets). I like technology , electronics and fixing things. The videos show the way and the tools open the path.
Do it, you'll learn how it's made and keep a reasonable device working.

Poor engineering on HP side enables user to put TouchPad Tablet into sleep-of-death. Translated: If you leave you device in sleep mode the battery can drain completely and then can NOT be charged. The internal charging circuitry relies on the internal battery having some charge.
Followed instructions and used the purchased tools to open and get the battery out. I then tried to charge the battery without success. Battery reads 0v after several hours and permutations of charging externally.
1) Looking for new replacement battery
2) Will update the iFix guide with advice on rebuilding machine as like the guide suggested the clips will break.
MUST use strong Metal Spudgers. Read and review guide text and pictures closely.

In preparation for the upgrade from Snow Leopard to Mavericks, I finally decided to replace the original internal Apple Disk Drive with a fresh one from you folks. While the old drive was still operating fine, I knew it was on "borrowed time" as the iMac is 6 years old.
Both your written instructions online and the Video were EXCELLENT! It does get a bit scary to open up your iMac for the first time since leaving the Apple factory in 2007, but it all went perfectly. Thanks.
Keep up the good work iFixIt!

Needed to replace iPhone 4 battery and also put on the revelation back cover.
The experience went well. The battery was indeed stuck down with much adhesive, so keep prying and it comes out. The tools were useful. All in all a good experience.
It's not hard really. Just keep prying at the battery!
