Ipod Nano 6Th Gen Battery Replacement From Start To Finish.

Hi this is John will fix it planet. And today, we're going to take a look at the iPod NATO, 6th generation. We have a battery that isn't holding a charge for very long and customer would like that replaced. So there's only one way in to replace this. And we will just warm up the display a little because that's where we're going to go we're going to go through the display to get to the battery there's, a very thin, outer perimeter, where the display is attached with adhesive.

So you don't want to put a tool. Very far in I didn't measure, the exact distance. But if you just pick kind of close attention, you'll, see that I'm not putting the tool very far in, so there's, a cable that you do have to watch out for, and it's on the other side.

So it kind of opens up like a book if you have the power button, topside, and you're, looking straight down at it, then it would be on our left. So on the left-hand side as the screen is now that cable for the display is located on that left side. So we're talking about, maybe in. Just regular inches or whatever you're talking about a sixteenth of an inch, possibly something, but roughly in there, so we're, just checking the screen sort of throughout the process of removing it, just to kind of keep an eye on things, make sure we haven't done any damage to the display, the cost of replacing the display along with the battery is pretty inexpensive. So you know if you did do some damage to the screen it's, or you just don't want to bother with worrying or about if it's, not really all. That expensive to replace the screen along with the battery, but there's, no really need to either as long as you can get the screen off without doing any damage.

So you'll see there's a shield here metal shields held on with a couple screws is a couple of little rubber, don't know, really what to call those, but they're along the edge. And they just kind of fill in a space where you can get to the screws they're, just small, really, tiny, Phillips head, probably a triple zero double zero. Something would. Probably be good enough.

So as you can kind of begin to see there's a lot a little tiny border of surface area to apply adhesives to hold that screen in so that's difficult to work with if the screen doesn't want to stay stuck down. You may have to try a little something extra. So what we're going to do is first we're going to make sure that we spotless the surface area that we're going to apply adhesive that's, really important we'll, be doing that on the housing as well as the. Display itself we'll also be using a primer. And the primer will give us some added strength to the bond, if you're still having problems you could potentially use a few drops of a very tiny amount of superglue, or something the sort of control gel superglue, locked at, and that might actually help to hold that screen in place. So when we're removing the battery at this point, we don't want to disorder necessarily those wires from the board because we're going to take advantage of the extension from. The little of wire we leave behind in order to make the to get the new battery to install a little easier.

And to give us a little more slack in the wires, so it's, not necessarily something that's required. But in any case, this is just what I chose to do. You can do it either way, so we're going to just strip a little off of the ends of these wires so that we can apply a little flux and some solder on to them and get them, prepped and ready to put the new battery on. So we are. Adding a little of flux to the tips of those wires, and then we'll apply a little of solder to those ends. So now, I'm having done that we'll be able to easily attach the new wires from the new battery without any real trouble. So we're going to have two wires, though that are exposed and could potentially touch once everything is closed up and put back together.

We don't want that, so we're just going to use some liquid electrical tape effectively is what it is. It's, just kind of its. Effectively, liquid its electrical tape, it's, a liquid, so we're going to use a small the tip of our nylon spider, and we're going to apply a little of that here in just a moment, then we'll let that dry, and then once it's dry and everything we can work with it. And it will just put a coating a little shield over those exposed areas of the wires. So the little black giving looking stuff is the liquid electrical tape, and it's perfectly safe.

So there you can see a little of coding there, which. Protects our solder joints there, and we're, just going to let that dry and cure probably elect it overnight. And then, of course, you don't have to wait quite that long, probably a good maybe 10-15 minutes at most, but we let it dry probably ever not went on to some repair.

But in any case we come back the next day, it's, plenty Drive. We can work with it now we're going to have to place this battery in a certain way, I think starting to try and fit it in here at this direction, won't work. So we're. Gonna put the bottom side of the battery in first, and then it'll set right back down in there, where it goes, no problem a bit of adhesive on the underside of that battery will kind of keep it in in in place.

Now we need to tuck these wires in. And they this is kind of important. We need to fuss a little over it and make sure those wires are going to stay neatly, tucked in somewhat between the battery and the little logic board.

So that they're, not in any way pressing upward on the screen that part. Of that video cable that you can kind of see expose there's I'm sliding that display in you'll notice that we are having to sort of tuck it in between the frame and the glass. So that is a bit of a tricky sort of maneuver when you're attempting to put the adhesive in we're going to strip off the old adhesive.

Now and we're going to get started prepping the surface for some fresh new adhesive, and we'll also be using a primer. Sorry, I'm getting a little out of frame there. So now there's a little. Of leftover adhesive, that's also going to be on the actual glass part of the display.

And it may or may not have stuck there, but it most likely will, so you won't just have it on the actual housing there, but you'll also have it on the display. So the glass part can be scratched up a little paint or whatever the color is can be scratched up from in the back of the glass there. So if you're using a piece of metal or something to pull those loose, you need to be careful, you don't scratch up the.

Surface this is the parameter that I spoke about. These are just little sticks that you can purchase they're one-off use, basically, you just kind of break them internally. And that releases the primer into the little cotton tip, and now we're going to use that to coat the surface of the area where we're going to add the fresh new adhesive. So put a little on the backside of the glass as well as on the frame. And it doesn't look like this.

There was probably a point in time when I used a little. Of alcohol to sort of clean those surfaces a little better. It doesn't look like it made it into the videos. So you might keep that in mind as well, and we're going to try and put these little pieces of rubber back where they go and apply a little adhesive primer, rather on top of those as well. So that's some kind of weird.

So to speak, we have a very small area on this side in which to tuck in that part of that cable that's exposed there. So that's, again, going to be a little tricky we're going to. Use I believe this is probably a two millimeter width, and we're, just going to put what we need in there and cut it to fit.

They might make some sort of pre-cut adhesive that you could possibly get for this screen, but it's, not exactly a much easier to do that as it is to just cut your own fit. But whatever it is that you have is up to you. So I hope everybody has been okay, healthy and safe during these bizarre times with this pandemic that's going on. In our case we've had quite a lot going on. In fact, We've been really pretty busy, and we've added some new equipment and some other things involved in our particular business that we required.

So yeah, I mean, we've been doing okay, but we've also been really super busy, and I've been doing things for the family as well as the business. So I've been super busy and haven't really had time for to upload any videos. But besides this one there's, at least another one that some pretty much ready to go, except I'm, waiting on a essentially new computer. The one.

Up and using for video editing its, not it's, not it's, not working quite well enough for that and just got another one, um, it's, actually, a custom-built Dell Alienware. And so I'm pretty excited about that, but it's being built now as we speak, and once that is ready, I'll be able to go ahead and finish editing this other video. Now, some of these I can do right on my phone, and they don't need the computer necessarily, but the ones that do need the computer I need something useful that will actually do. The job you can see that the adhesive that we're using here is just slightly larger in width that we really require, so we're going to have a little difficulty getting that to slide underneath there. But once we get that in there, it'll work to our advantage a little and give us a little more surface area to sort of stick to, but you couldn't really get anything much wider than that. If this is a two millimeter, then I guess that would make the surface area, just maybe a little over one millimeter.

Something along those lines I think I had mentioned sixteenth of an inch earlier. So somewhere in that ballpark, again, I didn't measure it. So I, don't know exactly what that width is.

Now one thing I noticed here is that I had put these rubber pieces in order to put my adhesive on. And then I discovered that that was going to prevent me from putting my metal bracket back in. So that became kind of a moment of frustration for me. So we're gonna fuss around a little with that, and I'm going to so. You're probably going to get to see me fussing around with that, so I'm, not sure but if it is difficult to put this screen where it needs to go with adhesive, fresh new adhesive and put the metal bracket in all before you put this in. So this is kind of a difficult thing to do. So I couldn't really tell you, which is best or how you might go about that.

But ultimately you would have to have the adhesive in place. On the left-hand side, there apart end to the screen basically fit in the cable and all that. Tucked in prior to putting this metal bracket back in. So ultimately, I just ended up pulling these rubber pieces out of the way again and then sort of tucking in putting the screws in and and and tightening that down and then putting the rubber pieces back. So it was not really thrilled with that sort of process. And since you know, we were doing this video at this point, I don't, have any specific examples of how that might be done easier or better.

So if you think of one by all means can post it. In the comments below once we have everything basically back where we want it, though we can go ahead and seal this screen down, and basically you're done again, there's a nasty, little screen protector on there. So that that mess that looks like deamination is just his screen protector. So we're just going to turn it on and go through a couple little tests here. But basically that is the gist of it. Hopefully you guys can find it maybe a couple of better ways to handle that last bit there.

If you do can. Always let us know in the comments below, we really appreciate you watching. And hopefully this video is useful for someone out there that they can do this repair on their own and I have to pay someone like me to do it. Anyway, I hope you appreciate the video if you liked it, please like share and subscribe, and we appreciate you watching, and we got more videos on the way and lots of good stuff, lots of stuff happening. So again, thanks for watching and we'll.

See you next time? Bye bye. Now you.
