Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
My ipod was connected to the usb cable and it fell while still connected. it obviously damaged the bottom part of the ipod that connects to the usb cable. it will still connect to the usb cable but it will not recognize it on the computer, ipod, or sound dock. the ipod kept working fine afterwards but after the battery died i haven't been able to charge it. is this something i can fix? how much am i looking at spending? thanks for your help!
So basicly the bottom connector is broke. possibly the whole mainboard would need to be replaced or simply the connector replaced
Some tech might replace the parts for 40-60usd. I cant say for sure since I dont know how bad it is.

Tips for a great answer:
Sometimes, you might find that your computer does not read that the iPod is connected to the USB port, preventing the synchronization of new files.
There are several potential causes for this lack of hardware recognition and many steps can be taken to troubleshoot the causes.
Reset your iPod's internal software using the key combination appropriate for your model. Apple's support documentation details how to do this for each available model.
Install all iTunes software updates and restart your computer.
Connect your iPod directly to a USB port on the computer.
Do not attach through a keyboard port or USB hub.
These might not provide enough power to operate the iPod.
Connect the iPod to a secondary USB port.
If the iPod is recognized now, the original USB port might be damaged.
Connect the iPod using a secondary iPod USB cable.
If the iPod is recognized now, the original USB cable might be damaged and should be replaced.
Restore the iPod using a computer that can read it as a last resort. Connect the iPod to another computer, launch iTunes and select "Restore" from the iPod information screen.
This will erase all data and restore default settings.
Contact Apple support or visit an Apple store for further help if your iPod still cannot be seen. An advanced hardware issue might be present and a warranty hardware replacement might be indicated.
Hope this helps
