  • Another Angle for zfixit.com fix, solder pads lifted due to previous attempt / damage to battery FPC connection by other shop.
  • This one had ALL 5 solder pads ripped off the board, I recovered but this is expensive, price goes up for ripped solder pads.  Pictures shows two pads with copper soldered to traces after scraping through the board, the left most connections have a make-shift solder pad, it does the trick

Common issues with iPod Classic Battery connections requiring replacement

  • Battery FPC shows signs of damage, physical trauma to the connection
  • locking mechanism is missing or broken


  • Send Pictures (High Resolution Photos to 210-816-2108) or send text to that number and I will provide email address to send pictures
  • any other issues must be clearly annotated, why was the iPod open to begin with.  That additional issue will still exist if it has not already been repaired.  We are only repairing/soldering a new FPC connection onto the logic board. 
  • You must see physical trauma to connection, an absolute must.  If we receive and you want us to open device up to check the pins on the inside, $15 diagnostic fee applies.  
  • No moisture exposed devices accepted.  If we open device and there are signs of water exposure, we must return device.  Moisture esposed devices only get worse once we disconnect cables.  The corrosion present on cables may be the only thing allowing the iPod to partially function.  Once that corrosion link is broken, there are at times, no way to get that link back.  Corrosion melts connections, hence, the reason we will reject any devices that show signs that it was exposed to moisture.  The hints include visible corrosion, rust, water residue from a mineral deposits, thick syrup from soft drinks, etc.
  • If the connection is completely off the logic board, all solder pads must exist.  PLEASE SEND IN PICS of damage if you are unsure.

15 Month Warranty against defects.

You will not be able to tell we opened device, it will look and function just as when you sent it in.  Professionally repaired, not one warranty request since we have been repairing them! 

If you need a new face while we have it open, we can replace for a minial fee, discount will be available over advertised price, let us know if you are interested.
