Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

2 Answers

Cracked Screen, and other stuffs.

Well, my iPod "broke", and the screen is cracked, and black stuff is leaking inside it. It worked fine for about 6-12 hours (I forget), with just the bad screen, but when I turned the iPod on after that, the screen showed a picture of a "dead" iPod with, please go to apple.com/support. It also made a loud "click" noise inside 5 times, paused, then repeated. It still makes the "click" but the picture is replaced with the words, Please connect to a computer, in about 6 different languages. When I connect it to a computer, the black stuff isn't there, but it says, "Please wait very low battery." When I wait, It shows the Black screen with the white apple, and clicks 5 times, pauses and repeats, repeatedly. Please help.

Try smacking it against a table. The click is a hard drive problem.

Well, you should try restoring it. It will erase all of your data on it, but it might work. If not, you can try bringing it in to an apple store if you still have warranty, but it doesn't sound to good...

SOURCE: Cracked screen, and other stuff.

It's very likely that when you dropped the iPod and damaged the screen, you also damaged a small component inside of the hard drive. The clicking noises are probably those of the hard drive trying to work and the picture of a "dead" iPod (I assume it's a picture of an iPod with a sad face) is also one that pops up when one is having hard drive problems. If you're comfortable enough opening your iPod, you could probably replace the LCD and hard drive but it might be a better idea for you to just buy a new one and sell the broken one as-is on eBay as you're replacing 2/3 main components of the iPod.

Screen cracked, lines on screen, can't see anything on screen


I had the same thing happen to my Sony. The LCD screen is cracked and it is leaking stuff into your screen. It will just get worse until you can't read anything. The repair was far more than buying a new computer.

Sounds like its broken. the black ink stuff could mean the screen is cracked and it has bled internally. I had the same problem (screen bleeding). the not-turning-on part could be because ur not using full batteries, the batteries are not in the right way, or the screen crack is shorting something inside and not allowing the device to come on. get it replaced. when you turn it on press the menu/ok button is there any noise, tune. this happens to me to show its entered the menu section. if you are getting this sound, then its turning on but the screen is cracked. if not then you have a dead camera or change the battery positions or use new batteries.

Cracked Camera


No easy fix. Pressure or impact is the usual cause of a cracked LCD. Try not to get the black stuff on anything....it's pretty toxic! The screen needs to be replaced (assuming there's no other, internal damage). They are usually in the range of $75 US.

Cracked screen, and other stuff.


Did you know of anything you did to physically crack the screen?
As for the clicking-- that is the hard drive. It is either dead or stuck. you may want to try to "unstick" it the Risky way. To do this, Place a stack of paper on a table, and smack the ipod against it. Obviously you should do it to the back to avoid breaking the click wheel or screen (even though your screen may be broken already.)
As for the "very low battery" thing, just plug it into a computer or Ac adapter and let it sit. It will eventually charge.
