Re: re; replacing the screen,



To remove  the LCD screens ribbon cable, the thin black line to the right of the screwdriver tip is the cable clamp, this needs to be gently hinged upwards using a very fine flat blade screwdriver to about 40 degrees, full across the top of the connector working from the ribbon cable side, you will find the cable becomes very loose, and easily removed or reinserted. BUT please take care its delicate !!

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.

Apple 80gb mp3 will not start. It has not been in use for some months. I have charged the battery but just get the screen to come on occasionally. Is there a re-start procedure?

Use this article from Apple to do a reset and some other basic troubleshooting:

If the resetting does not bring it back to life, chances are you have a dead battery, I have had this happen a few times.

If you are somewhat handy, and comfortable taking things apart and putting them back together, chances are you could replace the battery. The hardest part is getting the case apart.

I have previously used ebay and things to buy a "battery replacement kit"...Be sure to get the right one for your style iPod, but once you get the case open, the battery is not that difficult to replace, and doing it yourself is much cheaper than having Apple do it for you.

My mp3 was in my pocket whilst i was out walking and got wet when i got caught in heavy rain I have dried it out but it is now not working jusyt keeps flashing on & off do I need to replace it oer is...

hi....... This is probably the worst thing in the world for an MP3 player.

If you can open it do so. Remove the battery if you can and make sure everything is dry inside.
Corrosion will grow up extremely fast around the connections and can cause some problems.
Most likely the player will never work as well again. If it does work it will be finicky and a pain to use. The only thing you can do it let it dry and keep the battery out while it does that.

If you cannot take it apart, there isn't anything you can do but let it dry.

I would give it a few days to dry out. The little screens make appear dry when they really aren't.

At least they aren't too expensive to replace! Good luck!

Zune froze on boot up this morning. Reset buttons won't work nor will any others. Tried charging battery to no avail.

There's a fix:

Your Zune will need a "hard reset."

To do this, use a small screwdriver to pop off the plastic shielding where the Zune cable plugs into and remove the two screws on either side of the plug. Next pop the cover off and locate the battery plug at the top left corner of the Zune, using your screw driver, pop the cable connection half way off, and do this to the other plug on the right side. Wait 3 seconds, then push down the right connector and then the left battery connector. Your Zune should start up immediately. Press the backing of the Zune down (make sure headphone jack is aligned) and put the screws and cover back in place.

It's an easy process but if you're unsure don't attempt it.

Nano plus won't stay running

There is a setting, I think, under Photo/video settings. VideoOut - set that to OFF or change it. The screen will stay on.

Is the screen cracked?

Does it appear to be leaking a liquid?

If so, there is no "fix" for it, you will need to have the screen replaced.

Best of Luck.

Hi -- as you say the rear metal case needs to be removed, best start around earphone connection, use thumbnail or thin stif plastic,ease under metal case in and work across top, then bottom sections then onto the side (on/off)switch there are two plastic "tanges" about one third along then two thirds along that need to be pushed inwards and upwards.The other side again two "tangs" but both these two are in bottom half only, at quarter and half way position. Please be very careful and dont insert tool to far 2-3mm at very most.
