My Problem

I dropped by ipod one to many times and got the sad face. Then I let it sit around for 3 years not sure if I should try to fix it, or scrap it. I figured it couldn't be that hard so I went for it and decided to replace the battery while I was at it for good measure.

My Fix

It is really really hard to open the ipod case, I am not sure I would do it again.

The case did not come apart smoothly, and I was afraid I was going to break everything. After that It was okay

The bumpers are a pain in the neck to reinstall on the new hard drive. It took a while to ease the hard drive back in so that the bumpers fit snugly into place. The i realized I hadn't reattached the logic board cable, so I had to take it out and do it all over again.

My Advice

Reattached the logic board cable before putting the hard drive back down!

My Problem

My son in law's phone fell and the screen completely cracked.

So decided to help him and ordered the part from IFIXIT

My Fix

Installed following guide as always, have done it many times, but always follow the guides ,like pilots follow their checklist before taking off no matter how many flight hours they have.

After powering up, success ,the display looks brilliant but when trying to scroll the phone will not respond.

Went over again the install and verified each connection meticulously.

NADA.. So decided to check the connectors more closely.

Used my BAUSCH & LOMB 7X Measuring Inspection Magnifier No. 81-34-35 and found that the Digitizer connector had what looked like a solder blob .Seems a fluke from the factory.

Called IFIXIT in and spoke to Chris. Explained situation and after that he will send a new Display and I will send back the one with the defect.

Excellent service from Chris .I sent him also a photo of the "offender"

As soon the new one arrives will inspect and install.

The saga continues LOL.

Thank you IFIXIT for your service and respect.

My Advice

Well, I can say that will inspect using my BAUSCH & LOMB 7X Measuring Inspection Magnifier No. 81-34-35 before installing any part just in case to trap any possible part flaw..

Would be a very good preventive action.

My Problem

Hard drive , battery failure and broken ear phone jack ribbon.

My Fix

Repair went flawlessly.

My Advice

Go slow, be careful and patient. Very rewarding repair to be able to complete on my own. Now I can enjoy my U2 classic again. Thank you ifixit!

My Problem

Original hard drive finally gave out.

My Fix

Repair went smoothly, once you get the first bits free from the shell.

My Advice

Just keep at it until it gets loose, though don't force it too hard.

My Problem

Dropped my iPod a long time ago. Hard drive was skipping.

My Fix

It was a little difficult to removed the plastic housing, which is the first step of the process.

My Advice

Be patient.
