Non-responsive scroller Hi there, i accidently dropped the device, about 3-4 feet onto some concrete, and although i keep it in a protective leather case, ever since the scroller does not respond. i can still listen to music, but only by selecting random albums and changing tracks.... Is there any way to get either control stuff without the scroller or even better to get the scroller working again? Thanks very much!

Well you can try and take it apart and see if you can see anthing wrong with the buttons, or you can replace the front with a used one on ebay.

I Want My (Digital) Rights!

In 1958, the Rocket Chemical Company realized that selling WD-40 for public use as a lubricant spray could be a very profitable endeavor. Today, WD-40 widely available in hardware and discount stores. There are five delivery systems for the product: WD-40 aerosel is the traditional delivery format; the WD-40 Smart Straw is a can with a permanently attached straw; the WD-40 No-Mess Pen allows you to use the product while on the run; WD-40 bulk/non-aerosol is offered in gallon and 55-gallon containers for large jobs; and the WD-40 Big Blast provides a wider spray pattern and larger can size.
Although WD-40 has a very distinctive smell, there is nothing dangerous in the product. The odor is simply the result of a fragrance added during the manufacturing process. The primary ingredients in the product are mineral spirits, liquefied petroleum gas, and mineral oil. The exact formula of WD-40 is a highly guarded trade secret, however.
For automotive repair, WD-40 has many uses. It can drive moisture out of the high- and low-tension electrical components of a motor engine and loosen nuts or screws. If you're trying to keep your car in top shape, WD-40 is also good for restoring and cleaning padded leather dashboards in vehicles.
Around your home, WD-40 can fix noisy door hinges, keep scissors working smoothly, loosen rusted screws, stop electric fans from squeaking, and lubricate the tracks in your windows to make them easier to open. Many people also report that spraying WD-40 on hand tools is a good way to prevent rust damage. Although it seems hard to believe, WD-40 is also a great household cleaning product. It is good for removing lipstick or tomato stains from your laundry. You can use it to remove stubborn duct tape residue, clean splattered grease off your stove, keep glass shower doors free of water spots, clean stainless steel sinks, and camouflage scratches in ceramic or marble floors. WD-40 will even take oil spots off concrete driveways.

dont remember to rate this tip...
thank you !

Ipod 4g non responsive

Its unlikley that it was caused by sweat particularly if it was in a case. You may want to check that it isn't a firmware issue by restting it (hold down menu and center buttons - WARNING: wipes memory). If that isn't helping send it in.

Do the 5 R's - they almost always work, unless you knocked something loose on the interior.

Touch pad will only scroll down, not up!

when my zen buttons stopped working all i did was just tap (not to soft or to hard) it on the side of my desk on the side of the zen on the volume side.

i think the problem is when people are dropping them its moving bits inside.

take out the two screws on the top and slide the face in a downward motion it will open it up,. if dropping it helps then most likely have loose connection to ur hard drive, open it up the bottom big square deal is the drive. use a tiny flathead to pry it up gently then pull the little black clips back that hold the wires in place. unplug it if its plugged in and carefully insert it back in and close the clips, re assemble and bam it should work unless ur hard drive is fried, THIS WILL FIX LOOSE CONNECTION TO DRIVE

I dropped my ipod after school once when someone bumped into me and it fell four feet to the concrete ground and now it won't turn on and i have tried reseting it and doing all the steps that i've looked...

Theres a spining drive inside the ipod. It's not spinning anymore. if it does not appear like it was dropped, and it's less than a year old, bring it to the Apple store for a possible free replacement.

Tell your friend to chill.

The main point is to act quickly, not to give the chemicals time to react. The longer you leave it before you did all you could, the more time you gave corrusion and other such reactions to take place. in any case of dropping into liquid follow these steps: Remove the battery immediately; rinse in distilled water. Why? Distilled water isn't ionised and has a high breakdown dielectric; ordinary tap water is ionised and conductive. leave it in your airing cupboard for a week to dry (if there's any sign of damp anywhere, just put it back in the cupboard for another week). Reattach battery. If it doesn't appear to malfunction (bear in mind the battery may be flat), try putting it on the charger. If it appears to charge (and holds the charge), and still works, you've probably got away with it. If dropped into a soft or sweet drink rinse more thoroughly in distilled water before drying. Carbonated, sugared drinks and hot, sweet coffee are the worst. You may be lucky if it survives. If the liquid is greasy (e.g. coffee with cream, soup etc.) You can use a mix of iso-propyl alcohol and water. IT types use it to clean computers. The water dissolves all the water soluble sugar etc. and the IPA dissolves the grease. A word of advice for the future: leather cases (the ones with leather, not elastic, sides) are your friend. They can protect from splashes and even brief immersion. Good luck
