Re: 3 year-old threw it across the room

Sorry to say but probably not worth the repair as I've seen 1 gig going lesss then what it would cost round trip for you to ship this one off to the repair dept?? I bought a 256 gig last week with a voice recorder for 12 bucks.

Ipod nano glass install

  1. Work in a clean, dry, and dust free area

    iPod mini - remove the top white plastic plate and the screws and retaining bracket beneath it with computer safe plastic pry tool and screw driver. Then slide the metal casing off, while placing light pressure on the center of the click wheel to disengage it from the casing. Slide the entire insides out of the casing, completely expose the inside of the ipod.
    All other iPods, remove the upper half of the plastic cover using computer safe plastic pry tool to expose the inside of the ipod.
  2. Now that you have exposed the iPod's innards, you should see the LCD screen in it's bracket with a single cable connecting it to the mother board coming off one side. Unplug the old LCD screen and set it aside.
  3. Plug the new LCD screen in exactly where you unplugged the old screen and place the new screen carefully in its casing or frame.

    *Now you can carefully plug in the iPod cable to test your work. If it is not working uplug the USB cable and check all your connections again, making sure the wiring is not twisting or pinched. Once you have checked and corrected the problem, retest it. (If it is still not working the LCD screen might not be your problem.)
  4. iPod mini - Carefully slide the iPod inside it's metal casinng, taking care to put gentle pressure on the click wheel to guide it into place. Then replace the retaining bracket and screws and replace the white plastic cover. Now you're done! Enjoy an iPod brought back to life.

    All other iPods- simply align the top panel and snap it back into place, being careful not to pinch any cables - or your fingers!

    Now you're done, and you have breathed new life back into your iPod for many more hours of fun watching and listening. Enjoy!
Make sure you purchase the exact screen you need. They can often be purchased online fairly inexpensively. Search around for the best deal you can get for your money.
  • Plastic tools specially designed for working on iPods can also be found for a few cents to a few dollars easily online.
  • Always work in a clean, dry, dust-free area
  • Always observe electrical safety precautions when working on electrical or computerized devices.
  • Remember that if your item is under warranty, working on it yourself may void the warranty, so if you have a pretty new iPod check with apple first to see if they will fix it for you for free under warranty!

    The LCD screen inside the casing is broken

    If you got it broken you should call the people who hold the warranty for the media player. If it was done by dropping it or anything else check your warranty to make sure it is still covered and see if they can replace it because if you try to fix it yourself they won't take it back and fix it for you for sure because you took it apart. They will claim you "voided" the warranty

    Screen broken

    I have the same black screen problem, and I have never once dropped it or done anything that I can think of to damage it. I tried taking out and putting back in the battery, like everyone tells me, but that still doesn't work.
    Though I don't really have a solution, my dad says if you have a warranty you can just get it replaced for a brand new one for free. Thankfully I do have a warranty for 2 years so that's what I'm doing.

    My sansa has black screen!

    It's toast, you troll. If you hadn't damaged the screen, you might have been eligible for an in-warranty replacement, but now you're screwed.

    These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

    Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
    Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
    Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
    Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
    If these fail, then:
    Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
    If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
    You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
