Mijn probleem

I have a 5th Generation Video display IPod, I have had it since 2004. The IPod still worked but the screen would not work correctly. It just stayed white and had some skinny black line going horizontally across the screen.

Mijn oplossing

Repair was super easy and pain and stress free. I bought the replacement screen and the tools needed to open and fix the IPod. I called Apple to see how much it would cost to fix and they told it would be $225.00 for them to fix it because they said it was a vintage Ipod and also it was past it warranty. I purchased the screen and tools from IFixit for $27.00 and that included priority shipping. I also downloaded the repair manual from the website which was a huge help. The manual has great photos and is the step by step instruction was dead on and perfect. I did not run into any surprises an the whole fix took about 15 minutes. The most complicated thing was trying to open the IPod once that was done it was super easy. One thing that the instruction say to watch out on is when removing the battery cable to be careful when removing the brown cable lock is very true. I tried to be as careful as possible but still ended up braking it. The instructions tells you what do if this happen. Well long story short I fixed the iPod for cheep and quickly and now have a vintage IPod that works great. Thank You Ifix it. Sorry was so caught up with fixing the iPod that I forgot to take pictures.

Mijn advies

Patience when opening the iPod. Do not try to force anything everything should come off easily and do not need to put much force into taking it apart. (do not forget it is an IPod and not a engine block). Make sure to keep track of the 6 little screws that you take off to separate the screen from the mother broad. Super tiny an can be easily lost.
