My Problem

My Ipod battery was completely dead so I couldn't use my Ipod even on a dock.

My Fix

I was scared to open it because it was written that it was very precise and difficult but it went very well as I made it slowly and carefully. What a great joy when the battery was in place and it worked ! I am so grateful to ifixit. Thank you so much to have made that possible ! My Ipod is as new !!!!

My Advice

I read many times the advice with fotos on your site to understand very well how to do it, and I also watched the video http://youtu.be/6aQn-HkvtvM . I didn't use the plastic tools provided by ifixit because they are not solid. I used two cutters. Thanks again to ifixit and to the people who made these guides !

My Problem

My iPod Classic was starting to show its age with the battery barely holding much of a charge, couldn't listen to any albums without it nearly dying most of the time. Instead of investing in a new player I felt like repairing the iPod myself since I had an idea how to do it.

My Fix

Great, though the iPod itself is a bit dinged up though that was mostly because of my doing than the tools given by the kit. The battery works, though I accidentally tore the ribbon the hold switch is connected to but I will replace that soon enough.

My Advice

Make sure you know what you are doing and be careful to not ding up your iPod.

My Problem

I own two ipod classics that stopped holding a charge. After the 80gb died I bought a 160gb. After a couple of years it died too. Since classics are discontinued by Apple I figured I'd give the repair a shot.

My Fix

I ordered two batteries + tool kits. Classics are pretty hard to open just as expected. The results are mixed. I got the 160gb working woohoo! The 80gb was a fail :( 1 for 2. Maybe I got a bad battery or did something wrong for the 80gb. btw, I did the 160gb first, that's the one now working.

update: a week later my 160gb that was working isn't holding a charge anymore. It worked perfectly a few times, and then the charge held less and less after each charging.

My Advice

It's possible to replace an ipod classic battery with no experience. It's takes time, patience and research. The blue non marring tools broke. I used a tiny flat head, hobby tweezers and the OTHER tools the kit came with. I didn't use the suggested putty knife but I think it's a good idea.

My Problem

I've got this iPod Classic from a friend of mine, but the battery lasts just a bunch of minutes. So I decided to replace it!

My Fix

The repair has gone good, though my LCD display broke up during the process because I used too much force while opening the case (the screen was already damaged). Next item to be replaced of course!

My Advice

Follow the guide! It was perfect

My Problem

The battery in my old, second-hand iPod was dead, and several friends recommended iFixit's repair kit, which was inexpensive and quickly delivered.

My Fix

The replacement was much more difficult than I expected! After about a half hour of effort, I hadn't even managed to open the iPod case. I'm fairly handy, so I was surprised by this. I didn't want to wreck the iPod, so I decided to outsource the job to a friend of a friend who's a gadget freak. He did the whole replacement in about fifteen minutes.

My Advice

Don't underestimate this repair job. It's not for the faint hearted!

My Problem

Mon Ipod classic ne tenait plus la charge qu'une quinzaine de minutes.

My Fix

En suivant la notice d'iFixit j'ai réussi à retrouver les capacités de mon appareil.

My Advice

Devant la compacité de l'appareil il n'est pas évident de forcer dessus. Cependant il ne faut pas hésiter pour accéder à la batterie.

My Problem

I have had my 80 gb Ipod Classic 6th Gen for six years. Recently, the battery started discharging within one day.

My Fix

Once the battery arrived, I opened my Ipod using the video provided on the IFixit site. Opened it, replaced the battery and now I have my Ipod back. Lovin' it!

My Advice

Take it slow!

My Problem

My iPod Classic was more than just a music machine... my wife gave it to me as a one year anniversary present, complete with custom engraving. When it stopped working six months ago, I was extremely sad :( While dragging my feet and contemplating getting a new one, Apple decided to cancel the Classic completely! With prices now in the $500's or more on eBay, I decided it was time to try and repair it myself.

My Fix

The repair went amazingly smooth. It took about an hour, as I replaced both the hard drive AND the battery. The repair guide was somewhat helpful, but I found that I was able to use my own methods to dismantle the iPod, and it was not nearly as difficult as the guide made it seem.

My Advice

Repairing my device makes it feel even closer to me than it did before. Don't drag your feet, get it done! You'll be happier for it!

My Problem

My way to old ipod finally quit taking a charge. It was completely dead

My Fix

Ordered a new battery from I fixit.com installed it and now back to using the ipod again.

My Advice

Remove old battery and install the new. Fairly simple to do.

My Problem

For a while now my black iPod Classic (120 GB) had been displaying an empty battery screen regardless of how long I charged it. I figured this meant that the battery was shot - sure enough, I was correct.

With Apple's most recent broadside release of new products the Classic has been quietly discontinued and the click-wheel's iconic functionality has been laid to rest.

The professional repair in a store would have cost me north of $60, so I took to the internet in search of a better deal.

My Fix

I received my order only a day and a half after placing it, which put me in a great mood to begin this small project. The package arrived in a small cardboard box that wasted no material with the tools and replacement parts that were enclosed.

The online instructions along with the reference pictures was extremely helpful in disassembling my iPod, a process which Apple truly seems to have designed to be somewhat difficult without the right guidance.

Once pulled apart, I was surprised at how easy it was to replace the battery, which was already at half charge when I closed up the iPod, and I was immediately able to listen to music.

My Advice

The plastic tools used to pry open the rear case seemed as though they might break or deform if used incorrectly. Be careful not to bend or warp them when you make the first insertion. Other than that the online instructions were very comprehensive.
