IPod damaged, clicking/grinding noise

IPod damaged, there is a small dent in the back toward the bottom right corner, Im not sure if that has anything to do with it. When I turn it on, the Apple logo appears and the grinding/clicking noise starts. I can also feel the grinding. Im fairly sure it is the hard drive inside trying to turn. That screen with the iPod with the exclamation point pops up with the support website at Apple. Then it just shuts off. The computer isnt recognizing it either.

Its about 2 years old and the warranty is out, i just want to know if i can get the songs back.

If the charges are on your phone bill, contact your phone provider. If they are on your credit card, contact your credit card provider and tell them that you've been scammed and want the charges removed. Then Don't respond to any more surveys to win anything.

Im listening music to my ipod while im charging it and then suddenly it turn off.And now i cannot open it,no power at all


First thing to try is a reset

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Tip:
  • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
  • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

USB Issues


Read this whole responds prior to doing anything!

apparently when the ipod was dropped it either damaged the ipod port on the bottom or the usb cable.
I would try using anothe rusb cable and see if that fixes it.

if it doesn;t, look at the port on the bottom and see if anything is visibly bent. if so try and get a small screwdriver and straighten it out.

Plug it back in and see if it clips into the port.

if you have permanently damaged the ipod port it is attached to the motherboard and almost impossibly to have replaced.

Warranty Replacement
However, if your ipod is still under warranty and shows no sign of damage to the port, you may be able to go to the apple store and without mentioning the drop tell them it won't work through the port.
they may just give you a replacement.after all that's what warranty is for.

Here is a link to check your serial number for in warranty status:

Can i change the battery on my ipod mini


You sure can!
ipodbattery.com

You may incur some minor physical damage to your ipod (like the case) but other than that it should be fine as long as your willing to open up your ipod! I replaced my ipod video with no problems, only a few dents in the plastic case, but since ipod mini is metal, you should have less damage to the case while prying it open, and i believe you open it by unscrewing some screws anyway...
