My Problem

Mon Ipod 5ème génération de 2006 a rendu l'âme un beau jour d'hiver après 10 années de bons et loyaux service. En cause? La batterie Lithium qui était complètement épuisée dans sa capacité de recharge.

My Fix

La réparation s'est très bien passée. En plus d'être ludique elle m'a permis de découvrir les différentes composantes de mon Ipod, un peu comme un trésor caché d'enfance que l'on retrouve un beau jour. La réparation a été supervisée par une vidéo YouTube dégotée par mes propres soins. Si c'était à refaire je n'hésiterais pas! Espérons que la longévité de ma nouvelle batterie procurée par IFixIt soit aussi longue que celle d'origine (à condition bien sûr de la bichonner à coup de recharge complètes ;-) )

My Advice

Pas de conseil! Rien de plus simple pour remplacer ma batterie. Ce serait comme demander à un enfant de marcher sur une ligne blanche au milieu d'un terrain noir. Seul petit conseil malgré tout, soyez un minimum précautionneux lors des manipulations.

My Problem

My Ipod had been in storage for a number of years. When I dug it out to use in my car the battery was completely dead, would not even charge.

My Fix

The repair was as described in the various videos that you can find on You tube and I fix it. It was very very difficult to open the case. The provided tools were not thin enough, not were they strong enough to do the job well. Running the too up and down the side did not help the tool just wore down. I ended up having to use a thin flat head screw driver to get the case started in few different places and then I took my remaining tool open the case the rest of the way.

My Advice

If you have a really tight case you may have to use something stronger than the supplied tools. I managed to use a metal screw drive and I didn't damage the case much, you just need to be careful.

My Problem

my phone's battery getting low and only give me half day usage.

My Fix

yes, got watch instructions from ifixit. do it carefully. you'll success.

My Advice

yes, got watch instructions from ifixit. do it carefully. you'll success.

My Problem

I had this iPod video for years(8+) in my car always pluged in to the radio. Well hot cold hot cold the battery just grew and grew.

My Fix

Got my part and the tools and started just like they said to, well tried. The battery had caused so my force that I was never able to open the unit the clasps were so tight that they would not give way I ended up bending the case with the plastic tools till all at once it just POPPED open and I lost my hard drive to the crash but all aside I did put the new battery in before putting it into it grave with a broken heart :(

My Advice

Swollen battery get someone that's done a swollen battery once before so you have more of a chance.

My Problem

The battery was going dead with my iPod. Considering that it is almost eight years I was not surprised.

It would launch and then shut off immediately.

My Fix

Smooth. Be sure and order the replacement kit with your battery order -- unless you already have the plastic tools for splitting the case open.

My Advice

If it is your first time to do this, be sure to look up the instructions on iFixit to make sure you get ti right. With a little patience, it is pretty simple.

My Problem

I listen to audiobooks during the night when I cannot sleep. My mind does not churn and it helps me to go back to sleep. Of course, then I need to figure out where I dropped off. It died and I cannot afford a new one, so I thought I would try. I am 73 and I thought what the heck, I cannot have one because I did not try or I can break it further in the attempt and still not have one or I can have my iPod back and the nights easier. Guess what, IT WORKS!

My Fix

We followed your video which was very clear. It actually was easy.

My Advice

If you have clumsy hands as I do, get someone with steadier hands and work together. I read directions and she did the work. Wonders what working together can do.

My Problem

my ipod video just failed with a "battery too low to start" message. does not even work while plugged in.

My Fix

very easy and smooth. was much easier then expected.

My Advice

tricky to put back cables.

My Problem

My iPod quit working, after searching for a reason, found a possible answer on iFixit...bad battery.

My Fix

First battery did not work...so I went to the answer blog and after chatting with "oldturkey", who answered my question and suggested it may still be the battery. I called iFixit and the person who helped me reported that yes, it could have been a bad battery, sent me another and suggested I call if this one did not work and iFixit will help troubleshoot and to please take the old batteries to a recycling place. I just replaced the battery

and the iPod whirred back to life!! I'm very happy!! THANK YOU iFixit!!

My Advice

I read most all of the advice from others, so I knew to start at the bottom of the iPod...so read the advice section before you attempt anything so that you will not mess up your device.

My Problem

Even though this iPod should be retired, I wanted to see if I could fix it. And after years of daily use, the battery life was down to about six hours. I saw how cheap you were selling replacement batteries and decided to go for it.

My Fix

I wouldn't even have known where to start without your website. I took the back off and replaced the battery. Then I had to go buy a new precision screwdriver since I never can find the old one. I took the front part off and there was a little piece of felt or something under the button that was off-center. I moved it back to the center and my button works again. I put it back together and everything seemed to work when it was plugged in, but when I unplugged it it didn't work. I had to take it apart about five times before I could get the battery cable to stay in place. I think it was because of the tape on the battery. I cut the tape so the cable could lay flat and that seems to have fixed it.

My Advice

It was much cheaper and easier than I thought it would be. If I had taken it to be repaired it would have cost three or four times as much.

My Problem

Both my iPhone4 and iPod 5th Gen needed new batteries since the OEM parts were not longer up to par and would die shortly after being off the charger.

My Fix

iPhone went just as the tutorial guide outlined. No issues what so ever and was done in under ten minutes.

iPod went smooth until I realized that the connector for the battery cable was not a "latch" like described and it went somewhere in the abyss under my desk. No fault but my own, but this will add another week or more until I can get a replacement part.

My Advice

Follow the guides step by step! Pay attention to any insignificant piece you might think is attached because some may only be held on by pressure and are small enough to lose indefinitely. In other words, pay attention to what your doing, unlike me :D and do it on a big open clean table just in case something breaks loose.
