Replacing cracked screen

Insert your plastic pry tool into the seam in the side of your touch and run it along the length of the device to release the back panel from the front.
If your replacement screen did not come with a plastic pry tool, then a small flat-head screwdriver will also work.
Remove the square battery from the motherboard in the front housing by running the pry tool along the sides of it and gently pulling up.
Remove the small piece of black tape from the bottom of the front housing to expose three screws.
Remove the three screws using your small Phillips-head screwdriver. Remove the small screw near the top of the battery connector ribbon as well.
Remove the metal cover from the bottom of the front housing with the plastic pry tool.
This will expose the ribbon that connects the screen to the front housing and motherboard.
Flip the screen-connector ribbon up and gently pop it out. Then remove the two screws at the top of the front housing and disconnect the one other screen-connector ribbon.
This will release a thin metal board at the top of the housing that guards the screen. Pull the metal board out carefully.
Remove the 16 small screws from the side of the screen.
Once the screws are removed, the LCD screen will be free of the housing.
Gently remove the screen and replace it with the new one.
Replace the screws and reassemble the iPod touch the same way you took it apart.

You live for your iPod.
It's what you listen to in the car, as you walk into work or during your classes, and you plug it into speakers for music in your home.
But you just dropped it into a puddle or into a pool or down the toilet.
Now, you're wondering if you can save your iPod

Get the iPod out of the water and dry it off so there's no standing water on it.
Turn it off. Turning it on while there's water inside it will fry the insides.

Place it in a warm, dry place.
Give it a few days off before turning it back on.
Turn it over occasionally to prevent water from pooling.
Some experts recommend blow-drying it for a few minutes every couple of hours with the blow-dryer set on low.
Try putting the iPod in a bag of rice for a few days.
The rice absorbs the water inside the iPod.
See if your warranty covers your iPod. Usually warranties don't cover water immersion, but if your iPod still doesn't work, it doesn't do any harm to check before you buy a new one.

Many people find that at one time or another, an electronic device becomes wet.
Whether it's because of a spilled glass, a rain puddle or pool water, water does serious damage to devices such as touch screen phones and tablets.
Water damage also voids many product warranties.
Use these techniques to minimize or eliminate the damage done by water.
If you learn such tips and act swiftly, you may be able to save your touch screen from serious damage.
Turn off the device immediately.
This vital step prevents the electronics from shorting because of the water, as it cuts off the electricity to the important parts of the component's interior.
The longer the device is left on after exposure to water, the greater the chance of water ruining the circuit systems inside the device, which cannot be recovered.

Remove the battery and any other removable parts.
The object here is to create as many venues for the water to leave the device.
Sometimes this may mean just the battery, which is often sufficient.
If the touch screen device has a flip feature, open it as much as possible.

Dry the outside of the device completely.
Use a paper towel or cloth to pat down the device with care, so as not to increase the amount of water entering the innards of the touch screen.
This prevents water from entering through seams or crevices in the device susceptible to water seepage.

Place the device in a bowl of rice or silica gel packets.
Cover it completely in the rice or silica, both of which are highly effective at absorbing excess moisture.
Leave the device completely submerged in the bowl for at least 72 hours for maximum absorption.

Remove the device and replace the battery.
Once you have left the device for as long as possible in the bowl, it's important to test out the device again.
Attempt to turn on the device.
If it does not power up, it is likely broken beyond simple repair.

Got wet and it works but no back light - the screen is really dark

Simply its wet and damaged and your lucky its working. You can try leaving it over night in a bowl of rice just drowned in the rice. Dont add water or anything else just rice. The rice works as an absorbant and it may remove that extra water that hasnt been able to try because it is inside the ipod.

    My Trio t3000 was plugged into my computer and i accidentally unplugged it before safely ejecting it and now it is stuck on the sync screen

    Plug it back into the USB port and let it charge for about a minute. Attempt to access the Trio from your "My Computer" screen and once you've done that, close out and "Safely Remove" and the problem should be solved. Worked for me.

    My Creative Zen MX was exposed to water when my water bottle leaked in my bag. I was able to drain the visible liquid from the screen and I put it in a desiccator with silica gel desiccant. How long should...

    I'd wait for at least a day, (not including the night part), Most times when I've immersed my phone, or PDA, I've found that around 12 hours is enough time to soak out the watter.

    Often, no harm comes from trying the power, it's just disfunctional, (it may not turn back off for instance), the safe thing is to wait.

    Also, another good absorbant medium is Rice, to burry your device in a bowl of rice will draw out the water.

    Good luck with that.

    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!

    I dropped my archos 605 in water the screen went a blue colour before dying on it a goner.

    probably...especially if the battery is still powering the device when you dropped it. remove the battery right away and have the water drained. You can try to dry it in an airconditioned room for several days but not under the sun or inside the refrigerator :-)
    Try to power it after several days or weeks..goodluck!

    Perspiration/Water in the Screen

    1. put it in an airing cupboard overnight whilst standing the player upside down or put it somewhere warm - but not too hot - over a weekend.

    That should remove the condensation from inside the player.

    2. Don't switch on the player whilst there is condensation inside it or it will fry.
