Question about Apple iPod touch
MY Ipod went thru the washing machine and dryer now nothing comes on and wont charge. Any solutions?
You can disasemble the iPod to see if there is any visable water damage. If there is and you want to replace it, you can go to www.ifixit.com and order the appropriate parts there. Also at the bottom of this entry you will see another web address. This is where you can watch free iPod repair video's. :)
Top Case Removal Begin by using a flat tool to separate the white plastic front case from the silver backcase. You will need to stick your flat tool into the crevice, work it down into the crevice,and then pry up so that the casing separates. Apply enough pressure so that your flat tooldoes not slip and scratch your iPod!Continue separating the casing by gently prying up all the way around the unit. It shouldbe much easier to pry the casing apart after you get the initial corner started.
With the casing separated, grasp the top half (the part with the front bezel) and flip it over. Note that there is an orange cable in the top left corner that connects the iPodlogic board to the headphone ports. If you gently grasp the cable and pull, it will slide out of its connector on the headphone port module board.
