My Problem

Simple but sad story...iPod would not turn on...no music = no work in the yard. Unhappy wife!

My Fix

Watched the YouTube video and all went great! The putty knife did the trick.

My Advice

Awesome company...great product...saved me a couple of hundred dollars.

My Problem

It's easy to lose the screws. Set them aside a few inches away from your work area. The screws are so small they are easy to misplace them.

My Fix

The thin putty knife is the key to this fix. Make sure you view the U-Tube videos during you repair.

My Advice

Put the screws away from your work area.

My Problem

Headphone jack, but hey might as well do the battery too while I got this thing open right?

My Fix

Opening was easy for me. I felt the difficult part was getting the ribbon cables back in the connectors and locked in, but it just took some patience.

My Advice

Fix your Ipod Classic. It is sooooo worth it. No other device with 160GB storage out there and new ones are $500 because they are not made anymore.

My Problem

Broken battery jack and screen

My Fix

Very well but I have been fixing things since 40 years.

Not recommended to someone inexperimented.

It took 3 hours

But the new battery last only 1 hour, any advice?

My Advice

Be Patient and go slowly

My Problem

Needed a new battery for my IPOD classic with video. Ordered the battery replacement kit w/ the extra tools.

My Fix

Repair was pretty easy. Unfortunately I had the IPOD model that was a little more challenging to crack open vs other IPODS. Once I got it open. Battery replacement was a breeze. The tools that came in the kit did the job nicely. Thanks!

My Advice

The plastic tools can be a little flimsy but they serve their purpose.

My Problem

My iPhone 3gs screen went white, I need it for work. So that's why I ordered from iFixit.

My Fix

Some steps I had to read twice, but once I got it in my head how to do it, it was easy.

My Advice

Make sure you have the right item, iFixit can help, then read the directions carefully.

My Problem

My 80gb got to where it would only power on when plugged into a wall outlet. The battery was so dead not even a USB could power it on (I would just get the 'please wait' screen when using USB).

My Fix

It took about 20 minutes to get the iPod open, but it was a breeze from there, and it just snapped backed together. I bent the side of the iPod when breaking it open, but it's barely noticeable. The new battery works like a charm. I put the iPod on shuffle for about 4 hours this weekend and the battery's only about 25% down.

My Advice

Like many others, I ended up having to use something other than the included tools to open the iPod. The plastic tools included in the kit just snapped. I used an exacto knife and a small flat head screwdriver to open the case.

My Problem

My 7th generation Ipod, with 120 GB and over 15,000 songs on it would eventually only hold a charge for approximately ten minutes. After much deliberation I asked Apple what my options were. They told me that because the Ipod was over five years old it was considered "vintage" and they could no longer replace or repair it and kindly suggested I buy a new Ipod (maximum storage capacity of 64GB, definitely going to be Ipod Touch, and uhh 10% off of 300? so I basically save on the tax pshhh). I decided that I would bring my best friend back to life. My Ipod has been with me through my tumultuous college career, my multiple study abroad trips and countless of other experiences that bonded us for life. I feel closer to this Ipod than I do many people that I know. I refused to trade it in for a mere $30 off of a newer version that should be ashamed of the amount of storage it has.

My Fix

The repair was stressful; I laughed and cried and perspired for about and hour and a half and then I closed it back up and it turned on right away! The videos on youtube and the step by step advice provided by iFixit was great! The only thing that was different about my experience was the amount of dirt and sand inside my Ipod. This didn't affect the repair but the wear and tear on the outside of the Ipod caused problems as I opened the device. You see, the corners of my Ipod were practically welded into one solid piece!

My Advice

Advice: Don't let anyone tell you that your 120 GB Ipod is worth only $30 off a newer, crappier version!! Send positive thoughts throughout the process and tell your Ipod that you love it.

My Problem

iPod unused for a while and could not figure if it was the battery or the hard drive. With the input of one of your customers I figured it was the battery.

My Fix

I ordered the tools from you guys changed the battery and the iPod works!
