the battery seemed to drain, so I decided to change it
The battery replacement went really well. BUT, it wasn´t a battery problem because it did the same as before. The logic board seemed to be damaged, so I changed it with another logic board to see it could be anything else. In conclusion, both logic boards broken and two new batteries unused.
The battery replacement is quite simple.
The logic board replacement is also achievable but the reassembly needs some glue

Followed your instructions. Took my time, process went well. iPod works again! Very Happy with the result. Your guides make all the difference.
Thanks for another save, guys.
Note: Instructions are comprehensive, but might be better if they say "battery replacers stop here", as they seem to go further than necessary.

Wanted a high capacity ipod for music, and my brother had one. Problem was that it had a broken screen. So he gave it to me for free and left me to repair it.
After my brother told me about this website, it was very easy. Bought the parts, and added a battery along with it, you know... just in case. It shipped quickly and installed it that day using the guide to make sure I didnt do anything asinine.
My advice is to use this site, and also to make sure you buy the right tools. It makes it much faster and easier and more reliable to repair things.

I was looking for an upgrade to my old iPod. I did not want to buy a new iPod Classic from Apple, because the size has not increased from 120gb for years, plus I like the older, simpler UI.
Everything was as smooth as the docs described. I took my time and had no problems. Some of the things inside seemed a little sticky from tape/glue, but it was not overly gooey.
The connectors are EXTREMELY tiny. Unhooking the HD cable was simple yet difficult to see without some magnifying lens. Rehooking the cable was nearly an act of faith, it doesn't go in far nor has any definite feel of stopping or going in "all the way". Just put in as far as possible and then re-engage the clamp. The clamp took a lot more pressure to latch than I expected, and being so teeny tiny I was afraid to use too much force and break it. Definitely get some of the plastic tools and have a tiny tweezers, like beauty tweezers, on hand. Be gently.
