My brother just gave me his iPod video. It does not work, and he now has a 64GB iPod touch. Before, it only worked if it was plugged in, but one day he left it out in the sun and now it will not turn on at all. I've ordered a new battery for it, hoping maybe that will work, and I'll post here when it arrives which it should tommorow and if it is sucessful.
Has anyone else ever managed to fix an iPod? Or a phone? Or other electronics?
Wouldn't it be smarter to borrow somebody else's battery before buying a new one?
Ipods are usually fairly easy to fix. It sounds like it's definitely the battery. There are tons of sellers on Ebay where you can get good cheap Ipod batteries and most throw in a free tool as well. I have replaced batteries, hard drives and fixed water damaged Ipods with 100% success so far! Let me know if you need help or if you can't fix it, let me know I could either try fixing it for you, or buy it from you for parts.
It sounds like either the battery or something unfixable. Good luck on replacing the battery.
Any luck repairing the Ipod?
Forgot about this topic!
Silly me.. I got the battery and it DID turn on, but it gave me the sad apple logo. Then about 5 minutes later one of the clips on the circuit board broke ): Bye Bye iPod.
Well make sure you don't throw it away it can always be fixed with some soldering, if you want to donate any of the parts to me I will gladly pay shipping!
