Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

No audio in right ear unless you press on the lower left corner of screen

My 1st gen Nano 4g will not play sound in the right ear unless you press on the lower left corner of the displey screen. Even then the volume is only 30% of the level of what is coming out of the left ear. In the same location on the screen I see a gray spot that looks like the liquid crystal is leaking, but I do not see any physical damage.

Has your ipod been dropped/sat on/run over??

Normally I'd think it was the headphone socket, however if your LCD is leaking and you are having problems with with volume I think your ipod has suffered an impact which has damaged the logic board.

The bad news is logic boards, while easy to source, are quite an expensive part. If you are not bothered about replacing your LCD I would suggest buy an ipod off ebay with a broken screen and take the logic board out of that, it should work out quite a bit cheaper and of course when you will have a hard drive and a casing left over from the scrap ipod to resell.

To open your ipod use two small flat bladed screwdrivers inserted between the metal shell and the plastic top of the ipod and gently prise apart. Once inside, all the major components are connected with ribbon cables, there is no soldering involved replacing a logic board. Some of these cables are quite fiddly though and the connectors are easy to damage so if you are not confident doing this I'd suggest getting it repaired by a pro.

My 1st gen ipod has a blank screen

If your ipod has a white screen reset your ipod. You can do this by pressing and holding the menu button and the center button in your ipod. Keep pressing both until the apple logo appears this should reset your ipod. If it does not work try again. This worked for mine good luck :)
