How necessary is it to have the HOLD switch in the locked position? On my iPod the switch is stuck in the unlocked position and I can't force it into locked.

Is locking the iPod for a mechanical reason or an electrical/software reason?

It is for an electrical reason. If the iPod hold switch is kept on, the device will not turn on, thus ensuring the device stays powered off while performing service.

I have a 60 GB iPod photo that needs a new Logic Board. I bought a 30 GB used iPod on eBay and replaced the Logic Board. Now the iPod thinks the hard drive is only 30 GB, when it is really 60 GB. It works, but the hard drive is not recognized for its full size. Sites like this offer a 20 GB and 40 GB logic board...I apparently need 60 GB. Can I bypass this somehow, or do I really need a logic board that is specifically made for 60 GB???

Hello,

First thank you for this tuto and help.

I did follow your instructions and every step was ok but when I closed my i'Pod, it kept staying on the lock position even with moving the lock button.

Now it has charged but I could not make it run.

So I did a complete reboot by connecting it to my Mac with i'Tunes to restore.

It's still locked.

What can I do?

Than You for your answer

Much quicker and far easier opening from the right side instead of from the top using the blue plastic spudger. Opened in under 10sec. Do not know why this guide asks you to start from the top and work it to the left corner. Perhaps it was meant as a challenge.

Edwin Seah - Réponse

Well, I did it! I am pretty mechanically inclined, but I don't work well with small stuff. Anyway, as others mentioned, this step was the hardest for me, the included tools, worthless (to start to separate the case) As another person mentioned, I used a razor blade on the side on the upper left corner pushing down toward the metal clips, 'pop' once the first came off, then I used the blue tools to release the remaining clips. I didn't want to remove the connector in step 8, but had literally no room to work, the connector is a square push in type that is attached to the ribbon cable, I pryed with the blue tool carefully at the connector base, it popped right off! (getting is back on was more challenging, but managed with a small pair of needle nose pliers.) Had to pry the old battery out carefully - it was really in there. Got it all back together, works like a champ! Thanks ifixit!

Promptly broke both blue plastic tools. I used a putty knife to pop the case. Opening was the only hard part. I didn't disconnect the headphone cable. No problems and the battery has enough charge that I listening to Bare Naked Ladies now. Last week I installed a new hard drive in my Mac mini. IFixit is the greatest!

heldon - Réponse

If you are lucky, your battery may swell up like mind did, short of blowing up it opened the case for me. That being done really made it easy and encouraged me to do the repair myself. I still needed the proper screw driver (T6 Torx Screwdriver) to remove the two black torx screws that are found at step 10 of this repair guide. I purchased the iFixit 64bit driver kit, simply because I intend to work on several other iPods and phones, the kit is of good quality, well worth the purchase. If you have some mechanical ability, and follow the instructions, I was done in about 20 minutes, placed it back on my Bose player. I couldn't wait for it to charge, just wanted it to start playing, and after a minute or so my iPod 4th gen 20 gb was playing the music which I hadn't heard in about 3 to 4 years, as a result of a enlarged battery. As I write these comments down, I'm listening to my sweet tunes with a big smile on my mug, the sign of a satisfied customer. Thanks to iFIXIT.!!!

This is the most fragile piece to work with in the whole process. Make sure you have some glasses or something and actually watch the individual pins while you reconnect the cable. I can't see so close, and didn't see what I was doing clearly. Consequently I broke the pins.

Be very careful disconnecting. In fact may want to leave connected. I "removed" the entire piece pins and all from the board and had to replace the logic board to fix. A $15 fix turned into $65. Happy to say got it fixed with a new board but this was a crucial step that cost me big time! Again leave headphone jack connected if at all possible!!

DO NOT remove the ribbon cable unless absolutely necessary. I also removed the black female plug from the logic board by mistake. However, in my case I was able to plug it back in and it still works (phew!). Lucky. I might have destroyed some soldering, I don't know ... but it works.

Paul - Réponse

At this point I damaged the motherboard irreversibly!!

This guide should be modified. You should not attempt this step. Either you replace the battery without disconnecting the ribbon. Or if you really want more room, you unscrew the other little board from the the metal half of the case.

If you are replacing the battery (and not reusing it) feel free to cut the red, white and black wires. If you leave .5 inch of cable, you can use the cables to assist the removal of the connector from the logic board. The connector has a small "bump" on the back side that will resist your efforts to remove it from the logic board. If you are aware of this, realize that it may take a degree of finesse to remove the connector. IT CAN BE STUBBORN!

I used the spudger to try to remove the battery connector. That was a mistake. A small part of the left edge of the connector broke off. The new battery's connector still connects, but it may cause problems later. Use a hemostat or small needlenose pliers and pull straight up carefully.

I would actually recommend unplugging the battery cable before removing the Torx screws. The screws will give additional leverage and stability, and help keep the thin daughterboard-like portion of the logic board from flexing too much.

This battery is definitely hard to remove. We're usually don't recommend removing anything by pulling on the leads. This battery is an exception, since it's going straight to the recycle bin once it's removed. There's very little space on the side to insert a spudger, and doing so might result in damaging the case.

My leads snapped off as well. I wound up removing the hard drive and logic board in order to grip the battery firmly and pull it off. iFixit instructions for removing the logic board led me through the process no problem, but it could be worth adding a note to step 12.

It is hard to remove the battery. I could only remove it by using the small plastic tool provided in my "ipod replacement battery pack". The good thing is that I did not have to remove the hard drive or the logic board. Now I have my iPod back!

Instructions up to step 12 very helpful, clear but for battery socket/connector. There is a small tab on the inside of the connector facing the battery. By gently pressing this tab with a 1.4 mm. flat s/driver blade - thru' cut-out in socket - the batt. connector will just ease out, no fuss. The battery of course requires some coaxing before it gives way. Overall, a great help as usual from the team @ iFixit *University*

I got a surprise when I connected the battery and the iPod immediately went into the white screen of death (yes, I had activated the "hold" switch as directed in step one). I could think of nothing else to do other than finish putting it back together. Right now I'm letting the battery run down and am crossing my fingers that it will come up afterwards.

Unit turned itself off after battery ran down, about 10-15 minutes total. Got very toasty during that time; I opened it up to give it some air. After it shut down, I plugged it back in and was thrilled to get the "charging" graphic. Some 15 minutes later (or so), the unit came alive and now seems fine. Success!

All of the extra comments were super helpful. Dull knife or metal bladed prying tool from ifixit tool kit to pry open. The battery should come out before torx screws, and go ahead and pull the wires on the battery if you are replacing it.

Biggest trouble I had was step one. I actually broke the edge off the large tool. A note somewhere else on this site recommended using a razor which work far more easily then the large blue tool. Common sense, your using a sharp razor, be careful!

As previously noted the screws are TINY, very easy to lose of you drop one.

I jockeyed the battery to get just a crack of space and then used the spluger tool to pry the battery free from the adhesive, very strong.

I have a 4thG original ipod. This was a simple process and it was successfully completed. The ipod was able to be synced after 6 months of sitting in a drawer. The only issue so far is that the entire ipod gets warm to the touch while it's charging. Hopefully that will lessen after subsequent charges. The only bit of confusion in the instructions is the beginning step of inserting the ipod tool at the top. I thought I was trying to unlatch a tab there but there is none on top. Otherwise everything else was clear and exactly as described and pictured.

My click wheel was acting up. Basically every button pushed behaved as if it was the center button. After reading a few of these guides, I guessed that maybe my battery was starting to swell and was putting pressure on the back of the wheel, causing it to malfunction. Bingo! New battery did the trick!

Step one is the hardest for sure. Took me 30 minutes to get it to open the iPod because I was determined not to damage the plastic of my U2 limited edition(still in immaculate condition thanks to the hard case I've kept it in for the past 8 years).

Here's a tip - when you're opening the casing of the iPod you're actually prying the metal base away from the plastic faceplate. Once you get the first tab free it's all gravy. Thank you iFixit!

Great Tutorial. iPod 4th Gen working perfectly after +5 years working just as a paperweight.

Just a thing: it was easier for me to open it at first starting from one of the sides instead from the top, and then kept opening the whole case around.

It worked exactly as described. At first I had trouble finding a spot to insert the spudger tool but once I did I inserted used a small flat head screw driver to pop the tabs free. I started opening from the side because the case is more flexible there than the top as shown. I magnetized the torx screwdriver tip before I started so I wouldn't drop the screws. My old battery was swollen and I can see why my click wheel was not functioning properly. Over all this took me no more than 15 minutes to complete.

Success! New battery is in and the iPod works and looks as good as new (minus the bulge from the old swollen battery). My iPod is a 20 GB 4th Gen. Thanks for the detailed guide! Two thumbs up (although one is slightly scratched and both are tired from prying open the iPod). I agree with others that getting the case open is the toughest part of this process (30 minutes trying to get it open - 5 minutes to swap battery and get case back on). I used a plastic credit card - Qdoba rewards card :) - to slide down and open the tabs once I was able to wedge it into the side.

Mike - Réponse

All went quite easily, once got the case open. I only had two large iPod opening tools, and found the trick was to insert one quite quite forcefully (near the earphone jack as described) with the curved tip down towards the metal case and then it would stay in place - as it had inserted past the thickest part to the tip. Then I could easily slide around to the corner and insert the second opening tool on the long side. The adhesive holding the battery in place is very strong, but again using the opening tool I could insert from the side and underneath the battery and use it to lever the battery free.

The old battery was really swollen (twice as thick as the new replacement) which explained why the center button had become almost impossible to click, and of course, why the iPod had stopped working - it was unable to charge the battery.

As soon as I plugged the iPod into the charger it came to life, and now I have access to music that I have not listened to for 2 years.

I've read of some people having trouble after a battery replacement, because the new battery doesn't have a full charge coming from the factory and that model iPod shipped, or was 'born' with a firewire charger. And these people who were having trouble with their ipods had been using a usb charger or used the computer with its usb connection to charge.

It turns out that they should have been using a firewire charger, at least for that 1st full charge of the new battery, properly resetting every thing with whatever differs between usb and firewire output. A little hotter voltage or mAmp what ever the little difference was. One guy said his ipod had been problematic for years. Until he got his original firewire charger he had useed for years, his pod acted like it was brand new after he started charging with firewire again. He looked into why, and all he could find was others with the same situation.They had very picky ipods that didn't operate normally without a firewire charge! Mine was the same!

Surprisingely i was able to detach the Backcover by just using a simple creditcard. I sharpened the long side of the card with a knife to slide in better. I bend the backcover firmly by pressing it away from the front by using my thumbs - press away the plastic cover to receive a small slot (both hands needed). I inserted the creditcard into this small gap, moved it along a few times and the complete side was detachable at a glance. —>> The creditcard is long enough to press down all 5 plastic-hinges. Perfect sollution to me, try it. No scratches, no bending - easy peazy. Step 2-6 arent necessary with this solution. Sorry for my plain english. Greetings, Sören from Germany

This was actually a lot easier than I was expecting. I did require an extra set of hands to get the thing open and had to remove the logic board to free the battery.
