My Problem

Existing battery would not charge (old).

My Fix

My second battery replacement for this iPod. The opening tool is difficult; I used a palette knife to do the separation, otherwise the procedure steps are fine.

Only about 30 minutes

The guide didn't look exactly like my iPod but it was still easy to figure out how it was done

My Problem

It was an old ipod, and I was about to put in a new flash drive, so I thought a battery replacement was a good idea as well

My Fix

It went fantastically! Thanks to the ifixit online guide!

My Advice

Taking the cable out of the battery is tricky and you just have to be patient and pull very gently with your fingernail . . .

My Problem

My old iPod wouldn't hold a charge for more than a minute or so; it seemed to be causing some issues with rockbox.

Pretty well! I received two duplicate spudgers while the guide used a large and small... but I managed to get the iPod open with them, without any problems. I had it put back together . . .

My Problem

Original battery died, no Apple service sites nearby.

My Fix

Generally easy.

My Advice

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 . . .

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 . . .
