Topo Ceni, the connector can not be glued. You would have to find one and then change the connector by soldering a new one to the board.

Thanks! Can it be soldered with a Stanley Si30 soldering iron?


If you have a very fine tip for it, then yes you can use it. You also will need flux, desoldering braid and some fine solder....


Thanks for your advice! Sent the iPod to a technician, the iPod came back "working", because the wheel works fine for a few minutes and then stops working. Afterwards I can only reset the iPod (Menu + Select)


You might want to take it to your technician and have them recheck their work. also, try a different clickwheel just to be sure.
