My Problem

batteries wouldn't hold a charge

My Fix

The tools in the kit provided to open the case should be made a little more durable. After several attempts to open the case, and wearing out the plastic tools edge which rendered it unusable. I resorted to using a jewelers screwdriver to get it open and scratched the face in the process. The rest of the battery replacement was straight forward per the instructions.

My Advice

On Gen III Ipods, reconnecting the power connection for the hard drive is tricky. It takes several attempts to line it up. Also before you close the case up, make sure that the pad at the base doesn't interfere with the interface connection..

My Problem

In this disposable world in which we live I did not wish to see these two fantastic devices just discarded. In fact, this is the second time for each that I have replaced the battery. As my adult children now use their iPhones for their music, these may be passed on to some younger nieces and nephews.

My Fix

Smooth as silk.

My Advice

I find having a magnifying glass available a help as it is sometimes difficult visualizing the small connection sites. A gentle touch in handling the components is also a must as it is easy to damage the delicate connectors.

My Problem

Battery Replacement in 3rd Generation iPod

My Fix

Replaced the battery with no issue and the tools worked great. The batter wires were a little longer so they wouldn't thread around the logic board. I encountered two additional issues after replacing the battery. 1. The pins for the headphone jack pulled out of the plug and were bent. Make sure you are very careful when opening the case!! 2. When I tried to charge the battery, the iPod would not recognize the plug and the battery did not change. I guess one problem down and now two more to go!

My Advice

when opening the case, if easier, you can work the small opener around the opposite direction from the instructions. Worked easier for me.

My Problem

The battery only lasted 10 minutes.

My Fix

The repair went well.

My Advice

The plastic opening tools were completely useless. They wore down very quickly. I then used two Swiss army knives which did the job excellently. One only has to be a bit more careful, of course.

My Problem

The battery was dead and would not hold a charge.

My Fix

The repair went as planned. The case was a bear to get opened. I could not get it opened with the tools provided only. I broke one of the two opening tools. I needed a metal screw driver to get the case in an open position and then ran the plastic tool around the edge.

My Advice

I don't think you can get the first opening in the case with the tools provided.

My Problem

My friend couldn't figure out why his iPod wasn't turning back on and he really wanted to extract the music from it. I determined that it had a bad battery and was in need of a replacement.

My Fix

I would have probably destroyed the iPod without the guide provided from these guys, but with the guide by my side it was a breeze.

My Advice

Everything you need to know is in the guide, you're in good hands with iFixit.

My Problem

Battery dead since 5 years

My Fix

Very easy a matter of 15 mins

My Advice

Go for it

My Problem

battery didn't hold a charge long enough to enjoy a song on the ipod

My Fix

easy. used the tools and a knife from the wife. Missed the flat bar though...

My Advice

play calm background music

My Problem

I had an old IPod loaded with music but it needed a new battery. I almost threw it away but your site which I now ADORE gave it new life and I am now using it in a docking station and listening to some much loved music that I haven't heard in ages! Ahhhh, an outdoor deck,a glass of wine and some R.E.M., Robyn Hitchcock,Radiohead, Patti Smith, The Minus 5, The Baseball project, The Black Keys.....HEAVEN! Thank you SO much!

My Fix

The techie at my school suggested this site and of course HE did the repair but he swears by your site and I will use you again! You are AWESOME!

My Advice

Keep on keepin' on!

My Problem

To have a mobile device, who need to be plug all the time to a power outlet, is not the best way to use it!

My Fix

It was very simple with the iFixit tutorial. I think I do it in something like 10 min.

My Advice

To open the ipod, do not hesitate to retry again and again. It's not easy to remove the first clip, but after every think go very weel with the iFixit tools.
