Question about Apple iPod touch

Ipod touch cracked screen


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.

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.
I've seen 3 gen 32 Gb for around 50 dollar.

I bought my daughter Ipod touch 8g 18 months ago.She informed us on the 11 month that her screen only showed the apple logo and verticle lines.We thought she had dropped it or something and she denied...

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.
If this solution doesn't fix the problem, I will be happy to provide further assistance!
