Zune 80 Surgery: My DIY Battery Replacement

Posted by Ron Hostetter in "Zune Hardware" @ 07:00 AM

About a month or two ago, I started to notice that my beloved Zune 80's battery life was dwindling. I have several daily podcasts that I subscribe to, and in the last couple of weeks, I've needed to plug the Zune into an AC adapter just to keep it alive long enough to get through my podcasts. The other day, it finally quit for good. I was listening to some John Prine at work (an artist I had never listened to, but was able to sample because of my Zune Pass). The Zune made a subtle "pop" sound in the headphones and went dead. When I plugged it into my computer, the screen showed the battery charging icon, but never would boot up. It just stayed in an endless state of battery charging.

I bit the bullet and ordered a replacement battery from RapidRepair ($24.99). I chose overnight shipping since it was only one dollar more than standard shipping (huh?), and the battery arrived right on time. Tonight, I did the surgery.

iPodMods is Now Rapid Repair

"Beginning Tuesday, April 24, 2007, popular iPod repair and mod site iPod Mods will officially change its name to Rapid Repair and launch its new website at http://www.rapidrepair.com. The change comes as the result of the company’s rapid expansion into product and service offerings that now extend past iPod product repairs and modifications. “With the increased popularity of Microsoft’s Zune player has come an increased demand for repairs and custom mods for Apple’s rival player. We’re now offering a lot of the same services for the Zune, such as battery replacement, screen repair and custom mods, as we are for the iPod,” says Aaron Vronko, Service Manager of Rapid Repair."

Due to increase demand for Zune related services, repair and mod shop iPodMods has renamed to Rapid Repair. I find it refreshing to see a service such as this become a little less iPod centric. This move is a small nod to the Zune's small though present, influence.
