Mijn probleem

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.

Mijn oplossing

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.

Mijn advies

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.
