Question about Apple iPod touch

Ipod touch cracked screen

Hi,

I own an ipod touch 16 GB that I bought from Singapore as its cheaper there compared to prices in India. About 2 months old. I dropped it on my driveway and the screen is cracked and looks like there are spiderwebs over the screen. I called up a couple of showrooms in India and they don't deal with such service requests apparently..

The ipod in itself seems to be working fine.. Touch screen is working, songs are playing..

I called up a service center as well and they said they cannot replace broken screens.. Having read a lot of discussion threads I presume that unless I can come up with something that proves that the screen broke on its own due to some manufacturing defect I will not get a replacement..

Can someone please suggest a nice story that proves that the screen cracked on its own due to some manufacturing defect or can someone suggest how I can fix this?

If you're out of warranty, somebody has to open the iPod and replace the digitizer (touch panel). The part is available on ebay. If you want to do it yourself, Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod touch. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

You will not be able to fool anyone into thinking that this screen just "cracked" on it's own due to a manufacturing defect. The people who repair these on a daily basis have enough experience to know when a unit was dropped. I do not know how Apple operates in other countries, but I assume they have a similar situation to what they do here in the US and do not allow others to repair the iPod. You will most likely have to pay for this repair or replace the iPod at your own expense.

Zune vs iPod Touch, Which one is better?


<a href="http://ipadconverterformacclub.blogge.rs/files/2011/02/zune-hd-vs-ipod-touch.jpg"><img src="zune-hd-vs-ipod-touch-300x249.jpg" /></a><br /> Zune or iPod Touch? Which is better? Are you confused of choosing iPod Touch or Zune? Here we list several features by comparing <a href="http://www.ipod-to-mac.com/ipod-tips/zune-vs-ipod-touch.html">Zune vs iPod Touch</a>. Zune and iPod Touch has their own advantages and disadvantages respectively. Read on to know more.<br /> Zune vs iPod Touch on Price<br /> The two players only match up head-to-head in the 32GB size, where Apple's iPod sells for $299 and the Zune HD sells for $290, and almost-negligible price difference for most folks debating between the two. Apple's top-shelf 64GB player sells for $399, but Microsoft offers no comparable Zune HD in that capacity. Although Apple has the cheapest entry-level model, we have to hand the price war victory to Microsoft, which has managed to skim just enough off the price to make non-Apple-devotees look twice before leaping.<br /> Winner: Microsoft Zune.<br /> Zune vs iPod Touch on Display<br /> The generous 3.5-inch screen on Apple's iPod Touch has long made it the de facto player of choice for on-the-go video, but Microsoft set out to challenge that lead with the Zune HD. Not by offering a bigger screen, but a better one. Although the Zune HD screen measures a slightly smaller 3.3 inches diagonally, it's uses cutting edge OLED technology, which delivers brightness and contrast unlike anything you can find in a LCD.<br /> Winner: Microsoft Zune.<br /> Zune vs iPod Touch on Battery Life<br /> No matter how small or how capable, a personal media player does no good if you're constantly running back to the wall to charge it, making battery life one of the most important specs that you'll never truly appreciate until you take a device into the field. In this department, Apple didn't have it half bad to begin with, boasting 30 hours of music playback and six hours of video playback for the iPod Touch. But Microsoft has one upped Apple here as well, claiming the Zune HD will deliver 33 hours of music and 8.5 hours of video.<br /> Winner: Microsoft Zune.<br /> Zune vs iPod Touch on App Support<br /> As iPod Touch owners can attest, the diversity of offerings in Apple's App Store makes the device as much a portable computer as it is a personal media player. You can create and edit calendars on it, surf the Web, and even find nearby places to eat with Google Maps and its built-in GPS.<br /> If the App Store is leafy oak tree, full of 75,000 apps and counting, Microsoft's app offering is a seedling starving for water. At launch, Microsoft offers only six apps, including a few games and some basic utilities like a weather app and calculator.<br /> Winner: Apple iPod Touch.<br /> From comparison Zune vs iPod Touch, Apple's iPod Touch remains the reigning champion of the touch screen. For someone with no interesting in piddling around with apps, looking solely for the ultimate personal media player, the Zune HD truly makes a better buy.<br /> As iPod touch user, I think you would be interested in following topics:<br /> <a href="http://www.ipod-to-mac.com/">ipod to mac</a><br /> <a href="http://www.ipod-to-mac.com/guides/transfer-music-from-ipod-to-ipod.html">transfer music from ipod to ipod</a><br /> <a href="http://www.ipod-to-mac.com/guides/transfer-songs-from-ipod-to-itunes.html">How to transfer Songs from iPod to iTunes</a><br />

My apple ipod display screen was projected out. I can able to use only via cable. What can i do for this hardware problem?


try to live with it. These iPods bought second hand are cheaper then a new screen, let alone the money you have to pay, when someone is working for an hour to repair it.

YES! There may be something you can do! I give this solution a lot, but it seems to work most of the time. It may be that your ipod's software is simply corrupt. Just follow this guide to "Restore" your iPod's software.
