Which iPod touch do you have? Depending on the generation of iPod that you have, it does make a difference.

yea so it needs a replacement logic board basicly? is it possible to use the part from a 1st gen nano?

by Liam McGowan

I don't know I have the 4th Generations and it will only charge standing up on my I home with force. So it is very hard to get apps. I am going to look on apple.com! :)

On the 2nd generation, the dock connector is solder to the board. Check on the guide iPod Touch 2nd Generation Logic Board Replacement page 5 shows the dock connector. So you have to remove the logic board and then remove the dock connector by de-soldering it as well as the 2 prongs on the side that hold it on the logic board. Not a terrible job but it does require a steady hand, good eyes (or a magnifying lamp in my case)and good tools. Good luck and let us know how it is going.

Replacing a charging port on an iPod touch 4th gen or later is a standard repair done by any cell phone shop that microsolders. You could probably attempt it as DIY, or just send your ipod out to have it done and your device will be back on the road. Remember, the Apple store does not do repair, only replace. This isn't the kind of thing that they can help you with, however it is done all day every day by reputable repair shops.
