Logic Board Replacement Model Number
My first ipod classic i had had the battery connector snap off the logic board. I went ahead and bought another broken ipod classic off ebay, in hopes for the easy fix of the battery. When it came in the mail, I inspected it then opened it up to replace the battery with a new ipod classic battery i picked up.
However, once I placed the cable into the connector, it immediately started to heat up and produce a smell like it was melting. I quickly took it out of the connector (carefully) and began looking around for answers. Its possible that the logic board may be shot, and as I was looking online for one, I notice that there are two model numbers for the same device, 820-1765-A (which is the one I have) and 820-1975-A.
Can I use either one, or do I need to use the one that came with the original ipod for replacement?
Is this a good question?
