iPod Classic NOT RESPONDING to any touch!---HELP---!
i have an iPod Classic (6th Gen 80GB)purchased in 2009
Recently, it has ceased to respond to anything (which includes any button on the click-wheel), and starts only when the power cable is attached to it.
As a result, even when it is on, i am unable to do anything as it doesn't respond. The only thing it responds to is the HOLD switch, and nothing else..
Using the techniques for hard resetting the iPod (as suggested by Apple) is completely hopeless and of no avail (yes, i have tried it many many times..)
This has been happening for quite a long time and now i seriously need to repair it myself as the warranty period has expired.
Please help ASAP. Any replies/suggest
Aditya, there are two possibilities that I an think of right now, number one is that your click-wheel needs to be replaced number two that your logic board is not recognizing your click wheel. I f nothing has happened to the iPod I would open it up and take a look at the click-wheel connection. Make sure that the clip that holds the cable to the logic board is engaged, meaning that it is down. Also of course check for any corrosion on the board and the click wheel connector and cable itself. After cleaning and should it still not working, start with the click wheel. Oh, and while you are at it and it is open, change your battery as well. this way you will not have to worry about it for another three years. Good Luck and let us know if this worked.
This drove me F#@&ING BANANAS!!!!!
But a solution!!!!!
I cleaned the part of the click wheel ribbon near the ribbon connector.
Then I applied a small amount of super glue so that I was effectively gluing the ribbon to the board near the connector.
It seems that if the ribbon isn't flat it won't work.
I hope this works for somebody cause I know how frustrating it has been for me.
