My Problem

My trusted companion for ten years, one of the first ipods, had a battery that would no longer hold a charge. The ipod played well in my Bose station but could not play on battery power. I chose ifixit because of the reviews and the wonderful website that helped me identify the battery for my 60GB ipod.

My Fix

It was scarey because I am so attached to my old reliable ipod. The instructions were great. I was patient and I agree it is a challenge to open the case and going slow with care was the key. All went well. I did not have a guitar pick and only used the tools from the kit.

My Advice

A plastic tweezers in the toolkit to disconnect and connect cables would help a great deal.

My Problem

The battery to my iPod classic was draining very quickly. Seemingly I would use it for just a short time and the battery was down 50% or more. Always on a limited budget, and a firm believer in not discarding things unnecessarily, I chose to try to do the fix myself.

My Fix

The repair went well. The pictures, particularly the close-ups, the encouraging advice on the Guide really helped. I don't think I would have been able to do it without these helps. I took longer than the reported 20 minutes mainly because it was a challenge to get the cover off. (I never did anything like this before. Also nicked my finger when the plastic tool slipped.) The iPod opening tool didn't work for me in lifting up the "brown connector latch". I used regular small angled tweezers and gently lifted up the brown latch by positioning it on either side and gently pulling up. I really wonder if Steps 7, 8 & 9 should be labeled as "optional". After doing these steps and removing the old batter, I saw that I could have done it without these steps. To me, the less unnecessary fiddling around with the components, the better it is. So far so good. The cover is back on, battery is charged and I played it for a few minutes. Battery is good.

My Advice

It may help to get a magnifying glass to see those components better. Have a pair of tweezers handy. I had the guitar pick ready, but I really didn't need it to open the iPod. Also, reading the Step-By-Step Guide from beginning to end before taking the iPod apart was a help. If anyone has a broken device, I will definitely recommend them to consider ifixit before mourning their loss.

My Problem

The battery was dead. The iPod didn't play reliably even when connected. I wanted to give my three year old son a possibility to listen to music for himself, because we parents are Deaf and don't need music, but was disappointed that the iPod didn't work quite right. Now I carpentered a stand and additionally bought a female-female connector for the PC speakers, and presto! my son has an audio equipment for himself.

My Fix

I needed 40 minutes to crack open the iPod. I knew that. It's not easy to open the iPod. It needs very carefully applied force to open a tiny gap, then I additionally used two knifes so that the gap stays open while working around the edge. It was a fumble. It's a pity that we humans don't have four arms. Take it easy. Really eeeaaaassssyyyy......!! Slow and patiently makes the master. Don't despair. Don't force too much with leverage. When you have the gap on three sides of the iPod, it's almost done. Some plastic pins will break slightly but this is not a problem.

The battery connector gave me a scare. I pried it open upwards (never pry sideways), then the cable fell out. It looked like the connector broke, but it's meant this way. The cable just ends flatly with four contacts. When plugging in the replacement cable just slide it in then very carefully push down the connector. You should feel a tiny weeny click.

My Advice

1. Take a short rest when you didn't manage to open the case the first time.

2. Be careful with the battery connector. Don't pry sideways!

3. IMPORTANT: The battery cable is very primitive. It just ends flat without any plug. The contacts on the end of the cable must line up exactly, however the battery connector seems to handle this for you. Just insert carefully and gently press down the connector till you feel the tiny click.

4. Don't close the iPod immediately. First charge for about one hour to be sure that the connector works.

My Problem

would no longer hold charge

My Fix

no problems. good instructions. several good videos on line, too.

My Advice

The back of the case does not have to be removed completely by disconnection of the second lead, IF only replacing the iPod battery.

On line video was particularly helpful to show how to release the latch on the battery connector cable without breaking it. A guitar pick helped hold the bottom edge of the case open while using the opening tool to go around the outside of the case.

My Problem

The battery won't charge properly. The iPod has to be plugged all the time and it dies after 10 minutes of continued use.

My Fix

Awesome experience easy to replace the battery, it took less than 5 minutes. And the tools are amazingly designed for this project.

My Advice

Read carefully the instructions, take care with the cables when you open your iPod. Good luck

My Problem

iPod Video 60/80 Gb battery it's dead

My Fix

The repair steps was well. Only, openning was fine and patiently work.

My Advice

Open the device it's more dificult than the guide says.

My Problem

Th Battery died in my ipod

My Fix

Easy, just as described in the guide.

My Advice

Get the kit

My Problem

The battery finally gave out after all these years. I could only listen while it was plugged in to power, no iTunes for sync'ing music

My Fix

Reviewed instructions from IFIXIT.com and followed along. The first part of splitting the case was aggravating. I needed something like a guitar pick as I saw others post, so I found something that would work. I got the bottom open just enough to insert my small flat piece of plastic and started working the case, done... Once you get going and it's pretty easy. Take your time. Followed the rest as the instructions says, really 20 minutes.

My Advice

Use a guitar pick or some flat nylon piece once you get going on splitting the case, it helps. The rest is as the instructions says, no guesswork involved. Take your time, the hard part is that first step and the pick does help.

My Problem

I have all my music on a 80g ipod video

I use it at work , when the screen went black

I went right to google to find a fix.

I was wait listed for battery

Well worth the wait

My Fix

Just like ifixit said took less than 5 mins to fix

My Advice

Easy fix, much better than buying a new ipod

My Problem

Battery needed replacement.

My Fix

Really quick and easy!

My Advice

Be really careful and patient. Small tabs could be broken easily. Also, remove the back panel of the gadget starting at the bottom. Will prevent accidental scratches to the screen.
