My Problem

The screen just up and died--lit up, but nothing there. Music still played fine, so I crossed my fingers and hoped it was just a bad screen.

My Fix

Very smoothly. I've done a ton of repairs/replacements using your guides (an old Nano, this new Nano, 1st Gen iPod, iPod video, Mac Mini, Macbooks) and time and time again, you have made the improbable possible. I can't thank you enough.

My Advice

Take your time. Be patient. Take a break if you get frustrated. AND TAPE DOWN ALL YOUR SCREWS NEXT TO EACH STEP ON THE INSTRUCTIONS SO THAT YOU DON'T LOSE THEM OR MIX THEM UP.

My Problem

My niece's 2nd Generation iPod worked, but the screen was only functional after a hard reset. Watching the process I suspected the screen was shot.

My Fix

The parts were easy to order and arrived on time. The repair was as smooth as could be hoped for and the ifixit guide was invaluable.

My Advice

The repair guide called for a 00 size Phillips driver and to be extremely careful to not strip out the heads of the screws. The first screw was simple, but the second gave me trouble. I had a 000 size Phillips driver on hand, tried it and it had no trouble with any of the remaining screws. I highly recommend the 000 Phillips for this repair. I have a Wiha screwdriver set that includes a magnetize/demagnetize block. Having the screwdriver slightly magnetic helped make sure that the tiny screws came out with the screwdriver during dis-assembly, and were easy to replace during re-assembly.

This is the second or third iPod I've repaired with help from ifixit.com and have learned that aside from what is listed, Patience is the best, most important tool to utilize in the repair process. Always go slowly, have plenty of working space, good lighting and take your time. None of the repair was particularly difficult, but it was unorthodox compared to opening up and working on many other electronic devices.

My Problem

The "white screen of death"appeared and prevented navigation of the system, but the audio continued to work.

My Fix

The repair went exactly as per the ifixit online instructions.

My Advice

Be careful when reinserting the earphone jack. The ribbon connector must be pushed into the ipod casing with great care. It's easy to disconnect the terminal block from the circuit board when doing this. Before reassembling the device, make sure all controls are functioning properly. Particularly the click wheel and earphone jack.

My Problem

I had a white screen without any text. Research on the ifixit site led me to believe the display was bad.

My Fix

Instructions on the ifixit site allowed me to take apart my Nano without fear of breaking it. Detailed step by step instructions with pictures made it easy. I put the device back together and powered it up. iPod is just like new, all for a $13 part. Awesome!

My Advice

The screws removed in this repair are indeed quite small. I worked on a small bathroom hand towel to keep track of the screws and parts. When sliding the board with the new display back into the outer case some have experienced streaking on the front display bezel. Before sliding the board into the case I took a cotton swab (Q-tip) and cleaned the inside of the bezel with rubbing alcohol. I slid the board in before the alcohol evaporated effectively lubricating it and leaving no streaks.
