- Replacing the should resolve your issue. There is a very slight chance that the logic board is damaged where the LCD plugs in however, it is unlikely and replacing the LCD should be your first course of action.
- The main issue here is that you must install the upper case that has the functionality you are wanting (Expose, etc). The newer upper case is not only backward compatible with your older MacBook, but the new key functionality is gained by upgrading the case. Very cool. After installation, its a free-for-all. Swap keys all you want and the function behind the key is not going to change. I personally have alternating black and white horizontal rows on my MacBook keyboard, although I do not have the fancy upgraded keyboard with the dashboard and expose key functions. Have fun!
- Place the iPod into a shoe box full of white rice and let the rice soak up the water for several hours. Then use our guide to open your iPod and allow to dry open in a cool dry place for a few days. Make sure there are no visible signs of liquid, reassemble the iPod and try to turn it on. Good luck!
- As for the display issue, please double check that the display connector is firmly seated in its place.
- I would make sure all of the connections are properly seated. It sounds like the logic board is faulty, but it is unlikely that two logic boards were damaged in this same way, which makes me think something is not connected properly.
- I had this problem and I discovered pocket lint jammed into the headphone jack, preventing my headphones from fully seating. I used a toothpick and carefully removed loads and loads of pocket lint :/ Working great now!
- The antenna is part of the display assembly. You would need to replace that item to help solve the issue. Here's the blueberry and the tangerine display assembly.
- I recommend following the 5 R's. If this does not work, then, it is a hardware problem.
- I would recommend replacing the battery as well as the logic board. If the problem was merely the battery, you would still be able to power the iPod while plugged into the wall. Since the logic board controls the functionality of the iPod, you need to replace that to get up and running. Replacing the battery is a relatively inexpensive thing to do while you are replacing the logic board. If the battery inside is the original factory battery, chances are it is not in that great of shape.
- It could be something as simple as a poorly seated connector. I would recommend detaching your display and then re-seating the connection. If this does not solve the problem, it is possible that your LCD was 'zapped' during installation by the logic board, in which case you would need to replace the iPod Touch 1st Generation Display.

I want an FM transmitter in my iPhone 3GS! That would rock...and roll?

Same problem too. I'm so bored. Dear Ifixit Staff please answer us.
Cable #3, found in Step 6 of this guide, is most likely the problem. It seems this connection can be especially fickle and might require some wiggling, sliding and a tender touch to get the ribbon seated just right. If at first you don't succeed, try again. :) Good luck!

Quote from sean70:
Is there an available internal USB port connection? Can one be added somewhat easily? I couldn't get a detailed enough view on Photo 20...
Not that we ran across and Apple does not have any official documentation indicating the presence or lack of internal USB.
