My Problem

Wife's mini needed a new battery, we use it to play music for our son when he falls asleep. The original battery was done.

My Fix

Went well, mini holds a charge for more than 20 min again.

My Advice

Hard to avoid chewing up the white plastic end caps, especially if the aluminum case was bent.

My Problem

My daughter gave me her husband's ipod for use in my old pickup that I had just updated with a new radio that had a aux input. She had forgotten that the battery was on its last leg and she was upset with herself for giving me another project to work on.

My Fix

I had a real problem getting the unit from its case because of a dent in the case. In fact, I thought I broke the headphone board because after assembly I had no sound but had display. I tried again and found the board was not tight enough and simply needed to be snapped into place.

My Advice

70++ can install batteries in these little devices too! I have since installed a second one with great success on a unit I purchased on e-bay. I highly believe in repairing things rather then just throwing them away. Remember, many times the first units off the assembly line are the best; the later ones are after they have been engineered for less costs to make.

My Problem

My battery died a long time ago when I was skying in France. It didn't like to be freeze (no way !)

My Fix

I received the pack 3 weeks after placing my order (I live in Belgium, far far away US and China). I followed the instructions (I had difficulties to slide out the iPod of its casing, i had to force it a lot) and I succeeded.

My only regret is that the new battery is not more powerful. I agree to pay a little more to have a more powerful battery.

My Advice

Follow the instruction, and go luck to slide out the iPod of its casing !

My Problem

iPods like to be used regularly, not shut away for months (years) and then pulled out for occasional heavy use. Both my iPod Video and iPod Mini could only play 20 minutes before being out of juice. Charging them took longer and longer. New purchases were out of the question.

My Fix

Thanks to iFixIt, the batteries arrived faster than expected and the video tutorials made replacing the batteries a snap. I am happily back in heavy use mode with both!

My Advice

The step-by-step photos were essential to my repair experience. Once the batteries were inserted, it was a shocker to read something along the lines of "to complete the repair, follow instructions in reverse" - an abrupt end to the hand-holding repair experience. I would have felt better about coming to that notice if I was told up front that the instructions would take you in, but not out.

My Problem

La batterie était morte depuis quelques années

My Fix

La réparation s est très bien déroulée grâce aux images et explications de ifixit. Pas besoin d être un crack en informatique pour réussir la manipulation

My Advice

Que de suivre les instructions . Merci ifixit.

Une dernière remarque, quand vous achetez du site il faut attendre entre 3 et 4 semaines avant de recevoir le colis. C est très lent mais le résultat est impeccable

My Problem

Battery died (8 years old)

My Fix

Very easy with the aid of the ifixit guide (approx. 30 minutes)

My Advice

Take your time removing the lightly glued top & bottom to avoid cracking these plastic pieces or damaging the aluminum iPod case (I carefully went around the perimeter multiple times with a utility knife).

Make a note of how the battery wires are routed and take care not to pinch/cut them when sliding the "guts" back into the iPod case.

My Problem

battery had run down

My Fix

the replacement went as expected

My Advice

you can do it!

My Problem

Old battery that did not work

My Fix

It was very easy - just follow the directions. It took about 10 minutes because I was being cautious

My Advice

Follow the directions

My Problem

Battery no charge. Broke friend need music. Me rescue perfectly usable and stylish flotsam from the seething riptides of forced obsolescence, fix battery, give to friend.

My Fix

My Mini wears its scars with pride. (Seriously, they do not want you getting into that case. At all. You're going to have to chip the plastic.)

My Advice

Don't Panic. Especially when you plug in the charger to the guts, rejoice that it powers on, and panic because the clickwheel doesn't work. The clickwheel doesn't work because you had to set it to the HOLD position to disassemble the Mini. That should be added to the instructions, IMHO.

My Problem

Traded an old student desk for an old iPod mini that worked only when plugged in or about 20 minutes on an exhausted battery. I really only wanted it to keep plugged into an alarm clock, but when my Nano died from water damage (thanks to a little accident by my daughter) I decided to drop in a new battery and bring the Mini up to travel speed.

My Fix

Thanks to the ifixit site, I checked out the 'how to,' ordered my spudger and replacement battery kit and got to work. The photos and instructions were clear and straight forward. The only glitch was that once I reassembled it, the sound was very faint. Took it apart again and replugged the connectors that had been unplugged during the battery replacement and put it back together again, Turned it on and have been rockin' and rollin' since.

My Advice

Thanks ifixit! Great guides, great prices, and great service.

It's not that hard, and where it is hard the site tells you what to look out for.

I'm tempted to keep ifixit my secret and take those old dead electronics off of my friends hands, fix them and sell them at a profit, but this site is too good to keep to myself.

Now if only I can breath new life into that White Screen of Death Nano...
