Question about Apple iPod mini M9160LL/A MP3 Player
I have two two main problems. one is playback.when I plug in headphones or dock it into an external speaker set,the sound is very scratchy to the point where it's unlistenable. thisis intermittent, but it happens with multiple headphones and externalspeakers.
the other problem is battery life. itwon't hold a charge, even when unused. I have to keep it plugged inconstantly when not using.
any thoughts on how to fix this?
Headphone sockets on these after a while can become loose at the solder joint on to the board, they develop cracks in the joint making a poor contact, dismantle and resoldering headphone socket terminal is the fix.
As for battery life, it sounds like the battery pack itself is stuffed, there is now fix except to replace battery pack, recharbel nicad batterys do wear out. You could also check that termals on battery and ipod are clean and making a sound secure connection.
