00:00:04 00:00:05 How to replace your iPod battery.
00:00:06 00:00:08 You can pay Apple to replace your iPod battery,
00:00:09 00:00:11 or you can save big bucks by doing it yourself.
00:00:12 00:00:15 You will need: a stiff piece of plastic, like a guitar pick,
00:00:16 00:00:17 and a new iPod battery.
00:00:18 00:00:19 Step 1:
00:00:20 00:00:21 Go online and buy a new battery.
00:00:21 00:00:24 Make sure you get the correct battery for your iPod.
00:00:25 00:00:28 Start with your iPod off and the hold switch engaged.
00:00:29 00:00:29 Step 2:
00:00:30 00:00:31 Pry open the iPod.
00:00:32 00:00:34 Wedge a flat piece of durable plastic between the two sides -
00:00:34 00:00:36 a guitar pick works well -
00:00:36 00:00:37 and gently work it along the sides
00:00:38 00:00:40 until you can feel the tabs holding the case together.
00:00:40 00:00:42 Unclip them by poking them inward.
00:00:42 00:00:44 If your iPod is less than a year old,
00:00:45 00:00:47 or two if you bought the extended protection plan,
00:00:47 00:00:49 opening it will void its warranty.
00:00:50 00:00:52 Step 3: Separate the two sides,
00:00:53 00:00:56 taking care not to sever the thin ribbon cable, joining the two parts.
00:00:57 00:01:02 Step 4: Carefully remove the hard drive - it is the part sitting on the blue rubber -
00:01:02 00:01:05 by lifting the socket of the cable that connects the hard drive to the board.
00:01:06 00:01:07 Step 5:
00:01:07 00:01:09 Remove the battery using your wedge,
00:01:09 00:01:12 taking care not to touch the circuit board underneath.
00:01:12 00:01:14 Pay attention to how the battery is connected,
00:01:15 00:01:16 so you can reattach the new one the same way.
00:01:17 00:01:21 Step 6: Disconnect the battery's power cord from the circuit board.
00:01:21 00:01:24 The wires may be wrapped around or under the circuit board.
00:01:24 00:01:27 If so, gently pull them free with your pick.
00:01:27 00:01:28 Step 7:
00:01:28 00:01:30 Attach the new battery's power cord
00:01:30 00:01:33 and wrap it around the edge of the circuit board in the same way as the old cord.
00:01:34 00:01:36 Step 8: Insert the new battery,
00:01:36 00:01:39 then reattach the hard drive connector and the hard drive.
00:01:40 00:01:44 Step 9: Snap or screw the two sides of the iPod back together.
00:01:45 00:01:47 Recharge your new battery for at least three hours,
00:01:48 00:01:49 then enjoy your tunes once again.
00:01:50 00:01:51 Did you know:
00:01:51 00:01:54 20% of college students polled said they'd trade their Presidential vote
00:01:55 00:01:56 for an iPod Touch.
