It sounds to me like you need a new battery for your iPod. To order a replacement battery kit, you can go to (www.ifixit.com) There is also a free video at (http://fixyouripod.weebly.com) Below is also a step by step instruction (guide) to taking apart the iPod piece by piece so that the replacement can be done in an easy safe manner. If for any reason you have difficulties please do let me know :)
Top Case Removal Begin by using a flat tool to separate the white plastic front case from the silver backcase. You will need to stick your flat tool into the crevice, work it down into the crevice,and then pry up so that the casing separates. Apply enough pressure so that your flat tooldoes not slip and scratch your iPod!Continue separating the casing by gently prying up all the way around the unit. It shouldbe much easier to pry the casing apart after you get the initial corner started.

With the casing separated, grasp the top half (the part with the front bezel) and flip it over. Note that there is an orange cable in the top left corner that connects the iPodlogic board to the headphone ports. If you gently grasp the cable and pull, it will slide out of its connector on the headphone port module board.

Headphone Jack Board Removal Before proceeding, you must remove the top case.There are two t6 screws holding the headphone port in place. Remove both of these screws. You can now remove the headphone module.

Hard Drive Removal Before proceeding, you must remove the top case.Hold the hard drive up, and remove the black tape on the hard drive connector. This will reveal the hard drive cable’s connector to the logic board.To remove the hard drive, grasp the cable (thumb on top index finger onbottom) and gently pull the cable out (away from you and the connector)The hard drive will now be free of the iPod logic board.

Hard Drive Cable Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive.To remove the hard drive cable, hold the drive, and gently pull up on the cable.It should come out easily.

Headphone Connector Cable Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive.To remove the headphone connector cable, Grasp the cable, and gently pull up. It should come out easily.

Logic Board Removal Before proceeding, remove the hard drive and headphone connector cable First, disconnect the battery connector by grasping the cable and gently pulling up to disconnect the cable from the logic board connector. Remove the 6 black T6 Screws.
With the screws removed slightly move the logic board to the left to give more access to the clickwheel cable. Gently pull this cable to free it from the logic boardconnector.The logic board will now easily come free from the case. The LCD will still be attachedto the logic board.

LCD Removal Before proceeding, first remove:Hard DriveHeadphone Connector CableLogic BoardTo remove the LCD, grasp the green connector cable, and gently pull to free it from the logic board connector. It should come out easily.


Battery Removal Before proceeding, first remove:Hard DriveHeadphone Connector Cable Logic Board To remove the battery, use a flat tool to pry the battery up. It is held on with a lightadhesive, and should come up by using just a little force. Lift the battery out of the unit.

I dropped my in the toilet and it was working fine until about 20 minutes later the screen just went completly white. What do I do?


Hi Lizzy,
There is probably some water still in your ipod causing your problem.
Firstly, switch your ipod off. This can help prevent any more damage being caused.
Then, leave your ipod in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard or near a radiator (not on top!) for 6-8 hours.
After 6-8 hours try turning your ipod on to see if it is working again.
If it still isn't working turn your ipod off again.
Fill a small bowl with rice and submerge your ipod completely in it over night. It sounds a bit strange, but the rice draws out any of the remaining moisture in the ipod.
In the morning take the ipod out and get the rice out of anywhere it may have got stuck and try again.
Regards, sjstore2

I dropped my ipod touch in the sink and it now it doesn't work


to fix this, you're going to need your ipod, a plastic zip-lock bag, and uncooked rice. first, open the bag and fill it halfway with uncooked rice. then put your ipod in the middle of it all. then zip the bag and let it sit for about a day. the rice should have absorbed all the water by then. most of the times, this will work. but sometimes, the ipod is damaged beyond repair by the water. good luck
hope this helps ;-)

Ipod 5th Generation Video froze and is now dead


Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

Ipod touch


Not with water damage. It should be taken apart asap and get the moisture out of it.

They do make waterproof containers for IPods. Most are reasonably priced.

My Ipod Nano went throught the wash?


Hello AllieBaba,

I am sorry to hear about your Ipod Nano. Unfortunately Best Buy's™ Product Replacement Plan (PRP) does not cover liquid or physical damage. As such, the PRP would not cover the damage sustained by a MP3 player that was run through the wash.
Best Regards,
Ken

My ipod broke!


Hey Tobyk947,

When an iPod gets wet, water may occasionally get inside the casing and cause damage to some of the interntal components. Among the most common types of problems that water exposure has been known to cause are electrical shorts, and in some instances expsoure can even cause corosion on metallic surfaces like the iPod's hard drive or battery casing.

Unfortunately, this means that your iPod is more than likely in need of repairs by a manufacturer-authorized technician. In order to obtain repairs you may always contact Apple directly or you can always speak with your local iPod dealer for more information. Remember that Best Buy™ stores are able to provide repair services for most products they sell, and Geek Squad® agents on-site at your local store are always able to assist you in finding a resolution to this issue.

Please keep in mind however, that it cannot be guaranteed that the repair will be covered by any type of warranty coverage. Most warranties will only provide coverage for hardware defects and standard wear-and-tear, and will not include coverage for accidental/incidental damages.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Ipod was exposed to water


pluging the ipod into the computer while wet will damage the device further, take it a part and dry very carefully.
