My Problem

Dead swollen original battery. Click wheel not working too.

My Fix

Easy battery replacement. And the click wheel now works.

My Advice

The swollen battery may have helped. The case came apart with the provided tools easy, per instructions. I had to use needle nose pliers to disconnect the battery plug. The battery was . . .

My Problem

I've had my iPod 4G in a drawer for at least 7 or 8 years. I thought it was a problem with the hard drive, in addition to the battery. I ordered a replacement battery and an IDE to CF adapter, along with a compact flash card.

My Problem

The old battery was dead, was starting to bulge and if I hadn't replaced it, it may have damaged my otherwise fully functioning good old iPod.

My Problem

My iPod wouldn't stay on. The battery was shot and starting to bulge.

My Fix

In the first few minutes, I figured I'd have to get my husband to do it, but I knew he would probably destroy the case or at least scratch it badly. But I remembered a video I saw that recommended razor blades to help get the cas . . .

My Problem

Battery was not holding charge.

My Fix

I expected a printed page of instructions to be included with the Fixit Kit. I tried to find the instructions at the Fixit website and was unable. So I being the repair kind of guy that I am, proceeded on my own. I was able to figure out how to get the case open. Howev . . .

My Problem

The iPod would no longer run even when plugged in. Battery had swollen, making click wheel unreliable.

My Fix

I ended up using a plastic card (loyalty wallet card) to hold the top seam apart. The small opening tools were not up to the task. The rear shell now is slightly bent outward, but it's barely noti . . .
