My Problem

My headphone jack was faulty and sound was only coming through one side.

My Fix

It went well. Here's what worked for me:

TAKING OFF CASE VIDEO:

Using push pins (thumb tacks) to hold the front apart from the back as I removed the case. Those separator pieces that iFixit recommends are not necessary at all. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VeF04qKZ...

TINY SCREWS:

The clips holding the battery cable and headphone cable in place were so tiny. The battery cable clip slides UP, and the headphone cable rotates 90 degrees, so it becomes vertical.

My Advice

The hardest part was getting those dang screws out. I bought iFixit's size 00 screwdriver and was very happy with it--especially its magnetic tip.

Big note: Before you unscrew those screws, make sure the grooves of the screw are lined up with the head of the screwdriver properly. I had trouble at first because I tried unscrewing without lining that up, and I stripped the head of a screw. Wound up just yanking that one out and not unscrewing it.

I don't have much fix-it experience. When I got too frustrated (taking off case, removing screws) I left it overnight and had a much better experience in the morning. My iPod works great again now. Thank you iFixit!

My Problem

I take my iPod to bed - and on a certain day the headphone jack got twisted - and damaged my iPod internally. So: no more music. It was a very very sad day. The most economic way to fix this was to order the required spare parts and tools and do it myself. (If others can do it, I can do it too)

My Fix

Repair went fine but I took my time: about an hour. I Read the instructions thoroughly.

Removing the cover without damaging/bending it was the hardest part. I did not use the plastic opening tools - they were no real help.

My Advice

Take your time and concentrate. Remove tape over cables slow and gently. Watch carefully that the flat cables remain flat - I had a small problem with that. The new cable was bent next to the headphone jack and this resulted in a very distorted sound.

At that point I thought : "My GOD, what have I done!?".

Gently straightening the cable solved the issue and my iPod was as new. Then I taped the cables back on their original places.

Tip 1: order the required tools.

Tip 2: Test your iPod while it is still open, if anything went wrong - you can easily look for the problem without the need to reopen the thing.

Tip 3: keep cats, spouses and children away from the operation quarter.

Couldn't have done it without iFixit though, big thanks guys!

My Problem

My brother ask me one day if I could fix a iPod. I didn't know what kind he had so I ask for go get it and let me look at it.

I notice that someone had tried to open it up before and tried to fix it but had no luck.

The power button was broken and the plug-in was off-set

My Fix

I was look around to find a way to fix it until I came upon your website. It had shown how to repair and replace damaged part.

I looked for the repair for the iPod Classic I had to fix.

I was so happy that you had a repair guide for it.

When I finally had it disassembled I notice that the metal frame was broken and the power button was ripped off.

I decided to order the metal frame and the power button. When I received the part I was surprise at how perfect the part match.

It had taken me about 1-1/2 hours to fix it and when I powered up the iPod... well it works perfectly with no problem.

My Advice

If anyone need to find parts or how to repair you item always tell your friends to try fixit first before looking on youtube for the answer and parts Ifixit. They are the DIY place.

My Problem

Headphone jack, but hey might as well do the battery too while I got this thing open right?

My Fix

Opening was easy for me. I felt the difficult part was getting the ribbon cables back in the connectors and locked in, but it just took some patience.

My Advice

Fix your Ipod Classic. It is sooooo worth it. No other device with 160GB storage out there and new ones are $500 because they are not made anymore.

My Problem

Broken battery jack and screen

My Fix

Very well but I have been fixing things since 40 years.

Not recommended to someone inexperimented.

It took 3 hours

But the new battery last only 1 hour, any advice?

My Advice

Be Patient and go slowly

My Problem

Because I didn't wanted to buy a new one

My Fix

Labeled very hard tje repair went very well event though I0m not very good with my hands (hardest part open the ipod)

My Advice

Opening the IPod was a nightmare no advice on that just good luck for the rest just follow the instructions and you'll be well

My Problem

The lock button was broken and the iPod was always locked despite the position of the switch.

My Fix

It went great. The guide was very informative and made it easy. I took my time and went very slowly reading each step multiple times.

My Advice

The plastic opening tools are not very helpful. If you can get the putty knife in the case without them, you can skip that step. Also don't be afraid to be a little rough with the iPod when inserting the putty knife, as I had to and I still didn't irreversibly bend the case. Ultimately just allot a good amount of time and take your time and it should go well.

My Problem

The jack had just stopped working on my son's iPod. I couldn't bear to junk it, couldn't afford to have it fixed, am just a DIYer at heart. The cost of parts and tools was very reasonable.

My Fix

The toughest part of this job by far was getting the case open at the very first step. Plastic tools were neither tough enough nor sharp enough. The metal spudger might have helped if its tips were sharper, but they were just too blunt (I ended up not using it at all). I ALMOST got into the case with the flat end of the nylon/plastic spudger but it, too, was just slightly too blunt. I ended up (very carefully; mine was pretty sharp) using the large blade of a Swiss Army knife to get enough of an opening into which I could insert the plastic opening tools.

The putty knife was an absolute MUST. I could not have gotten past the small metal one-way tabs that line the inside edges of the back of the case without it. Once you lever in to the opening you've made with the plastic tools, DON"T get too vertical as you force the flat tip of the putty knife downward into the opening. I did this, not realizing how the metal catch mechanism that holds the back panel of the iPod onto the front is attached (spot welded?) around the inside perimeter of the case's back piece. By pressing down too vertically, I caught this metal retainer in one spot and bent it way out of shape. It took some finesse along with force to put it back into place once I had the case completely open. So, once you're able to get the putty knife into the opening, angle it a few degrees (probably only 5-10 degrees ought to do it) as you press it into the case opening. I was surprised how much force was needed to get the putty knife "all the way in" (actually was only maybe 3/16" or 3-4mm). I did not have any difficulty with the corner where the headphone jack is located, as cautioned in the excellent article.

My Advice

I have done a fair amount of small-scale repairs and thought my assortment of Philips screwdrivers would be adequate for the job. But couldn't believe how tiny the retaining screws for the headset jack itself, and the Hold switch are. So if you don't have a size #00, purchase the one offered with the kit. I was lucky enough to have a friend who was a certified Apple Repair outlet for some years, who loaned me this tool.

The nylon spudger was very helpful when manipulating the tiny plastic tabs that hold the ribbon cables in place, and when clicking these back into place during reassembly. Pay close attention to the wording on Step 18 - disconnecting the battery ribbon cable: you only need to lift the hinged plastic retainer clip, not remove the entire plastic connector piece from the circuit board (which was relatively easy for me to do by getting the tip of the spudger down very low into the small opening) - see enlarged photo where the spudger tip is in exactly the right place to lever under this rounded black plastic "clip" to pop it loose.

My Problem

La jack était abimée, le son ne sortait plus que d'un côté

My Fix

J'ai mis près de 45 minutes pour la réparation, le plus difficile étant l'ouverture de l'iPod, comme expliqué dans le guide ! Mais on finit par y arriver, et le résultat est parfait ! :D

My Advice

Regardez bien sur les photos pour utiliser le bon outils parmis les 2 en plastique pour ouvrir l'iPod : ils sont différents au niveau de la largeur et utiliser le bon marche mieux au début (logique ? pas pour moi...)
