Broked iPod



I've had it since december 05 and it's served me well. No audio from the lower plug or the headphone jack, but syncs with the computer just fine. Just randomly happened, didn't drop it or anything and it doesn't get used all that much anymore.

From what I've read, it needs a new logic board.

My last attempt at fixing it is to restore everything, which I'm doing now. Hopefully it works.

Definitely a bummer though.

Yay! Got my iPod fixed. < ---- > 04/11 10:36:10

I posted below about my iPod's sound going in and out in the right earphone. A friend of mine bought a kit online to replace the earphone jack and now it works perfectly.

So don't throw your old iPod away, kids. They are not hopeless.

What generation is it?

I've dealt with a couple now that were easy fixes. ipodmods.com has good parts for decent prices. I picked up a hd for mine and it ran great up till it got stolen. From their site you can build up any ipod/ zune you wanted because they have all the parts.

It's a 30 gig5th generation(video), it seems to be a common problem that apparently nobody has found a good fix for. If I press quite hard in the lower right corner of the ipod, the sound will come though.

I'll probably crack it open tomorrow and see if there's just a loose wire/solder thing or whatever. Otherwise I'll buy a refurb 80gig classic for $210 when I get the money.
