Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

How do I replace it?

Do I have to have someone else put in the battery for me? Can I do it myself? How much do you think all of that would cost? The battery and having someone install it for me? Is it just not worth it? Should I just get a new ipod?

No. Take it into a store then, radioshack. the nerd herd are very skilled - they will charge you 15$ +/- to install with battery. Its not a big deal and can do it on the fly. Good luck, generic battery is fine and cheap, lasts close to the original at half the price.

Ipod battery replacement 4 gig 2nd generation Green unit


Hi Mauimikie9,

some local resellers will replace the battery if they have authorised technissions on site.

However, you should ideally go to an apple retail store. They do these things all the time.

If you want to try it yourself, here is the first result in google for self replacement.

Good luck,

Nathan.

I cant charge my zenv mp3 so i need someone to help!!!!!!!


Hello there,

Apparently your battery is dead.. Just install a replacement battery and it will be alright. If I am not wrong this player uses 3V, 1200mAH battery. Please verify before buying the replacement. It should cost you around 15-20$

Your iPod's Owners Manual is here. It will tell you how to use all of the features of your iPod.

You can send the unit to Apple to have the battery replaced for about $65 through their Battery Replacement Program.

Or you can replace it yourself by buying a 3rd party battery replacement kit.

How do you replace the battery?


If you found the same battery all you need to do is unplug the old one from the player and insert in the new one. The wires should lead to the plug. Use your nails to carefully pull it out. and and you place it back in make sure you hear a click. If not I have explained how I did it here.
I replaced my battery with an old cellphone battery from samsung that was going to be thrown away. You probaly can find one on ebay for about $10. Make sure it is a square 3.7 liion recharageable battery. You may not need to do all of this if you find one just like the one in the player. But it may cost you about 20 - 30 bucks. Only do this if you are sure of what you are doing. I just break up the battery pack and open up the player. This is where it gets tricky. Unplug the battery and put it aside. Examine both batteries. Cut the green plastic from the player battery. Careful. There will be a circuit board on the one from the player. The idea is to remove it with the metal connectors than place it on the cellphone one. Make sure you place it the right way. Than tape it up tight with electrical tape. So it can fit back in the player. They plug in and charge for 4 hrs. And there you have it. If the player can't turn on with out the charger you did not made the connection tight enough on the battery.

PHILIPS GOGEAR HDD060 DOES NOT TURN ON


Here's a better solution - no offense, silly girl. First, find out if the computer will recognize the GoGear when you plug it in. If so, then use the Repair function in the Philips Device Manager.
If the computer doesn't recognize the player: Disconnect the GoGear from the computer, and turn the player off. Hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you re-plug the GoGear back into the computer. After 45 seconds to one minute, Windows will go into recovery mode and resucitate your player.

Also, the number for the Manufacturer - Philips - is
1-866-PHI-LIPS (or was it 1-888? - one of these is an adult line, the other is not) :-)
