- Make sure you connected the digitizer ribbon, you should kind of feel it click into place, be sure to double check that it works before you put it all back together.
- It goes on the other side of the red wire. If you can make the wire reach that far it may be salvageable, if not you will have to replace the whole component. You have to de-solder and re-solder the connections.
- The LCD is damaged. You will have to replace it.
- the digitzer ribbon is underneath the board, refer to the teardown manual on this site. I just take out the rear camera and lift the board very slightly to disconnect the old one and connect the new one, you will kind of feel it click into place. Make sure to test its functionality before you close it up. The LCD is very easy and is just on top of the board to the right of the digitizer. If you have any specific questions please feel free to ask
- I do not know of any videos myself. I would recommend replacing both parts, even if the LCD is still good. It only costs about 5 or 7 bucks more for the part and you save yourself the trouble of trying to salvage the LCD without damaging it because it is very sensitive.
- you can find all the parts you need on a reputable larger auction site, you will save about $40.
- It sounds like a bad LCD. I would try another one and see if that does the trick.
- There is no way to do that unfortunately. You have to put it into DFU mode and then use a computer to restore it. I would suggest trying to find a buddy who will let you use their computer. To DFU the iPod have it plugged into the computer, hold the lock and home buttons until the device shuts off, count to 5 and release the lock button while still holding the home button, a message should pop up on your computer prompting you it is in recovery mode and you have to restore it. Let me know if you have any questions
- You can, there are generic back covers you can purchase, however it will not have the serial number (or the correct one) on the back. Unless your case is trashed I would not advise doing a swap. You have to take everything out and move it to the new case which is very time consuming and there is a lot of potential to damage some crucial components.
- I have run into this issue before. It is either the antenna is not completely plugged in (which it looks like you checked for) or the antenna has a tear in it. I would just try replacing it and see if that does the trick.
