Replaced Video Screen, worked 1 week, got hot, won't boot
Hello, Great site & instructions! After dropping my 60G video ipod the screen was unreadable. I used it this way for a year with no problems, mostly in my car with a Kenwood deck & auxiliary iPod controller. I purchased and installed a replacement screen which worked great for about a week in the car. Then one day it just stopped playing. The front center of the iPod was hot to the touch. At this point it will not power up or reset.
Today I reopened the iPod to inspect the connections, all looked good. I found a shim under the clickwheel which was the same exact size as the ground tab. I reassembled the ipod with the shim in place on the ground tab. When I connect to the car stereo, I see the apple icon on the screen but it is very dark. It never comes on and there is no control. Tried to reboot, it tries to and never comes on. When I connect it to my PC, it doesn't react. Ideas? Solder a wire from the ground tab to the chassis? Thanks!
Is this a good question?
