  • iMac Intel 21.5" EMC 2428 Teardown

    Why would 4 1Gb modules add up to a cumulative 512MB ?

  • iPod 5th Generation (Video) Battery Replacement

    I've discovered something else... While the Replacement Battery w/ Ribbon Cable is the Same exact part number Model # 616-0232, As the Original battery in my 5th Gen 80GB Video iPod, the Replacement Battery's Ribbon Cable is a Tad Shorter, perhaps by a couple mm, therefore It is NOT the Same Length and I cannot plug it into the other side with the Retainer clip.

    How do I keep the Audio Ribbon Cable and HD Ribbon Cable from popping out as well? The clip flips down but does not lock.

  • iPod 5th Generation (Video) Battery Replacement

    Quote from lz4broc:

    Ok I followed the guide to step 10. took out the original battery. Put the replacement battery in the spot where it goes. But now the Cables will not STICK. the Cable under the HD for the Audio port pops out with the slightest movement. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it to stay. I've followed the Guide Backwards now and It always pops out. Also there is a teeny retainer clip for the Cable from the battery to the other side, HOW DO I get it back on???

    So the Problem is, Sure its a great all wonderful guide to show how to open an iPod but it doesn't help me to get it back together very well.

    So here i have it... my iPod was working mostly except no battery charge. So I spend the cash to fix it myself. the Opening the case was the easy part. I swapped the batteries was easy... But Now I am at a loss and Cannot get it back together. I am afraid it will never Work again.

  • Where we are coming from

    Praise BE that you guys exist!!! With your site and info I am going to replace and aging battery in my 1st Gen 5GB iPod. and will be able when the time comes, replace and upgrade the reg CDROM in my iBook G3 to a DVD/CDRW. That philosophy on your page "if you can't open it, you don't own it" has become my personal mantra as I contemplate buying a new computer, preferably a Mac, very soon.
