My Problem

We are headed on the road and wanted to use this iPod that's been sitting in a drawer for the past few months because of a dead battery.

My Fix

As everyone has mentioned, removing the case is definitely the hardest part. We were able to do so eventually without bending the case or prongs inside, but the fir . . .

My Problem

Battery wouldn't hold a charge, so the ipod had to be plugged in (to the wall, to the car, to the computer) to work. Often, I would have to leave it plugged in for a half-hour or so to build up enough charge to turn on. Cold weather shut the thing down entirely.

It wasn't the easiest thing in the wor . . .

Battery won't hold charge.

My Fix

It was difficult device to open, very challenging. Despite the excellent instructions, when removing the old battery, the lock switch cable broke. My bad, ordered replacement, luckily ifixit had one. I am glad I went this route, I'm rather fond of the device and want to . . .

Didn't hold charge for very long.

My Fix

As others say, most of the time is case removal. Take your time and work around left side and 2 corners. Battery clip is easy. Take your time prying up battery with care taken to wire behind it. Reverse process. Love that I can still have my 12000 song iPod back . . .

My Problem

The battery was very old and holding almost no charge

My Fix

It was very difficult to pry the external covers apart. The plastic tools wore down over time and before long would not hold the two sides apart

My Advice

Be very careful when detaching the battery connector from the terminal: I accidentally pulled it lightl . . .

My Problem

My Ipod wouldn't hold a charge at all. I would charge it until it was fully charged, play maybe 3 songs, & it would die.

My Fix

It went fairly smooth. The hardest part was getting the back of the Ipod off & that's what took up the majority of the time. Once I got that off, the guide made it really simple to . . .

My Problem

I usually keep my iPod in my car hooked up by USB to my car stereo and most days it wouldn't work because of a low battery. Only after about ten minutes driving would it come on and then it would work the rest of my drive. However, the next time I would get in my car it wouldn't remember my last son . . .
