My Problem

Dead battery - iPod wouldn't even power on.

My Fix

Easier than I thought. The whole disassembly and reassembly took 10 minutes. As I went along the side of the case with the plastic openers, the iPod just popped open. No damage to the case, no scratches, or anything.

My Advice

The tools are definitely worth the price, I recommend extra plastic openers just in case. i did end up chewing up one right away and almost did the same to the second.

My Problem

My battery died :(

My Fix

The guide was really helpful, but the tools provided were not useful. I used a small nail file and two eyebrow tweezers to get the job done

My Advice

Just be patient and look for some vídeos on youtube to get a better understanding on how to dismantle it.

My Problem

Battery would go dead within a day.

My Fix

Replacement of the battery went pretty quick. I would say it took about 30 mins because I had no prior knowledge of dealing with the disassembly of IPOD's.

My Advice

Be gentle on disassembly!

My Problem

160GB Ipod was flashing apple logo over and over. When putting into Disk Mode it would work perfect, I could play music off of it and add music as well. This told me it was the battery so I ordered one here.

My Fix

The repair (Replacing the battery) was very easy and went smooth, The opening of the Ipod however is a different story. Opening the Ipod is a pain in the @$$ and takes some time prying and giving up on caring about the little scratches you are creating on the sides of the device.

My Advice

I will never understand these plastic tools the replacement companies provide, maybe they work for 10% of people but they break and don't work on every Phone, Ipod, Iphone I have ever opened. My trusty little eyeglass flathead screw driver has always served me well.

My Problem

Battery wasn't showing when it was chanrging, and wouldn't hold a charge.

My Fix

it took 3 hours. I hate opening these things. After I got it open it was all down hill thanks to your step by step gides. Sorry on pictures. Didn't think of that.

My Advice

After replacing the battery, sync with iTunes. The battery wasn't showing the icon for chanrging until we synced it with iTunes.

My Problem

My iPod was getting no power from the battery.

My Fix

The Ifixit guide and repair equipment were very helpful and properly warned me of all hazards and difficulties.

My Advice

The most trouble I had was with two parts of the repair: 1) the initial insertion of the tools into the iPod needed help from a single sided razor blade. This was extremely helpful for me to get the putty knife into the case; I can understand why you do not suggest using a razor blade as this could easily cause injury. 2) After I had replaced the battery I dropped both halves of the iPod and the brittle headphone cable broke in two (I was unable to separate the cable from it's socket on the other half). I am now waiting on that part to complete my repair.

My Problem

Guessed it was the battery but wasnt sure....considered replacing but seemed excesive...decided to try replacing battery

My Fix

it was pretty dificult and im not especially mechanicaly inclined but all went pretty well....plastic pieces that came with the package were worthless...found other tools arount the house and it all went slowly but well...glad and proud to have done it and it worked!

My Advice

Give it a go.... you have nothing but $$$$ to save and a good feeling if you can do it

My Problem

Ipod would not sync or charge

My Fix

Not good. When I got to disconnecting the battery the connector on the board came off with the cable. All of the pins that suppose to be soldered onto the board came off. In the process of trying to resolder. Taking my time as to not to make any mistakes.

My Advice

take your time and be gentle

My Problem

The problem was the battery, i had to take the chance of trying myself it was only 19.95 compared to $200+ of a new ipod...

My Fix

It was very difficult to open the ipod but after that was a walk in the park. Although the ipod is not the same, i can live with it just a few scratches...

My Advice

My advice would be to buy a more complete tool kit or maybe the putty knife and two extra plastic tools beacuse their not hard enough.

My Problem

iPod Classic's battery wasn't holding a charge, and I was getting a couple hours max out of a full charge.

My Fix

Worked as advertised. Minor scratching along the edges because this model has particularly tight internal clips.

My Advice

A putty knife is essential. The no-scratch tools you get aren't really tough enough for this iPod.
