My Problem

I had two iPod videos, 5th gen., 30g. I gave my dad an iPod mini years ago. It no longer held a charge, so I decided to give him one of my iPod videos. I gave him one with a new battery and decided to replace the batter in the other (it didn't hold a charge for long).

My Fix

A couple of hiccups. I ended up popping off the front cover. The parts where the cover attaches broke in the process. I also had a hard time connecting the battery cable on the new battery (The steps online didn't include that part.) In the end, I got it together, and it works. The front cover is on there pretty well, although there is a small gap.

My Advice

When replacing the battery, pry the whole back piece off the iPod. Also, after detaching the battery cable, push the little connector back in when you want to connect the battery cable.

My Problem

Apple refused to replace the old one

My Fix

The new battery fit perfectly fine with no problems

My Advice

Don't trust what apple says when u ask for them to replace the battery they only will replace the one for iphones

My Problem

Battery was old and needed to be replaced.

My Fix

It was a pain to open the iPod even with the tools. Battery was really stuck and the forceful prying worried me. A small plastic part fell out when the case opened - I finally saw a similar part in the iPod and put it where it seemed logical - appeared to be a shield for some component. All in all the process went well.

My Advice

The video was not a video but a series of photos. The photos were a big help but more detailed information and photos should be added to help with the ribbon connection back into the iPod. I watched a few other videos and they explained the process better which was a help to me.

My Problem

The battery for my Apple iPod Classic would not hold a charge any more. I ordered a new battery and it was here in 3 days!!

My Fix

The instructions on how to do the repair was excellent!!

I don't usually order things from ebay, but this was a positive experience!!

My Advice

Do not give up when opening the iPod. I used a small screwdriver along with the tool sent.

My Problem

This might've been the most fun I've had for $15...

My iPod battery tanked a few years ago, and because I'm stubborn, I held onto it.

My Fix

The repair went really well - it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be, and not as hard as the other users had mentioned. (Granted, everyone's case is different.) I actually found it harder to get the thing back together than to get it apart.

My Advice

Two big bits of advice/warnings:

1. find yourself a pair of curved jeweler's forceps. I used them to loosen the battery harness clip. Miraculous.

and

2. The replacement battery was actually 1-2 mm larger than the original battery, so I had to squish the malleable wrapper around to get the iPod shell back on. Cross your fingers.

My Problem

My battery was dead

My Fix

I make 30min to replace the new battery. It was little hard for open the ipod but after that, it was very easy to replace the battery thanks to the guide.

My Advice

To take the time for open the ipod and after to be meticulous for the connection of the device

My Problem

In this disposable world in which we live I did not wish to see these two fantastic devices just discarded. In fact, this is the second time for each that I have replaced the battery. As my adult children now use their iPhones for their music, these may be passed on to some younger nieces and nephews.

My Fix

Smooth as silk.

My Advice

I find having a magnifying glass available a help as it is sometimes difficult visualizing the small connection sites. A gentle touch in handling the components is also a must as it is easy to damage the delicate connectors.

My Problem

Battery in iPod Video was very weak. I don't know why, it was only about 7 years old.

My Fix

Just like described on the website. I thought I was using more force than in the YouTube video but, it came apart, the same way.

My Advice

Be careful with the keeper for the ribbon cable and make sure the cable is all the way into the keeper before you snap it shut.

My Problem

My battery wouldn't maintain a charge.

My Fix

It went smooth

My Advice

Follow the directions and take your time.

My Problem

Dead

My Fix

Excellent! Pics and instructions were perfect..

My Advice

Plastic pry tools were not quite robust enough to open the case. Used a thin stainless ruler. Other steps done easily with the tools..
