My Problem

Both my wife's iPod Mini and her friend's iPod Nano had terrible battery life, and recently the Mini started showing the "Sad iPod" icon. I thought if I replaced the battery, the Mini might get a proper charge, and I could also check the hard drive's connection.

My Fix

My Problem

Three main problems for me :

1. The plastic pryer (green) didn't work well for me. It was finally crumpled. So I used a small flat-head screw-driver instead. Slightly scratched the nano but not significant.

After repair, appeared that iPod was not working. Required reset after installing new battery. Flip Hold switch back and fort . . .

My Problem

My iPod Nano is 6 years old and will not hold a charge for about a year now. Decided to replace the battery so I don't have to have it plugged in to use it.

My Fix

Received the new battery and tools. The screwdriver is fine but the plastic tool to remove the ends broke right away. I used a small screw driv . . .

My Problem

This iPod had been washed long ago, and the battery was dead

My Fix

Unfortunately this iPod had been heavily used an abused by my son, such that the back of the case was a bit dented in a few spots (and the corners were a bit rounded in). The main problem seems to be that the back dents decreased the intern . . .
