My Problem

-I've recently bought a used ipod really cheap, but it came with some problems; the battery,audio jack and the click wheel button. I thought of fixing it myself, since i want to save some money, instead of buying a new one. The problems were the next; Battery would only last for 2-3 hours, Audio jack would only have sound on one side of the ear and it could only have sound on both by pressing the head phone's plug,"Upward or downward" putting presure to able to hear on both. Click wheel button problem; it was cracked.

My Fix

The repair went smoothly and really easy to install; by following the webpage's instructions. Once i opened the case with the reapair tools that come along, it was indeed easy to take apart the old battery and the audio jack. i put everything back together in place with no problems just by reading and following instructions really careful anybody can do it, "I did it in less than 10 minutes".

My Advice

Read the instructions carefully and always make sure to double check, if you are buying the correct part for your ipod model. It is always better to read,double check and get advices in the ifixit forums in order to have a succesful repair,("Sorry no pictures this time"). thanks a lot ifixit -Ivan
