30 and 80 GB compatible?
I have 2 5th generation iPods. At first inspection it seemed like the battery in one was going/gone (the screen was blank and the HD clicked and whirled when on) and that the screen in the other was failing (very dim). I opened both up, swapped batteries and the screen comes up only with the circled red 'X'.
It appears now that both the batteries are fine. That the faulty screen may be due to water(?) damage and/or some very slight corrosion, and that the non working 80 GB's HD clip for the cable is broken in half lengthwise, so it won't stay in.
The numbers on the cables are almost the same:
The back of the 30 GB screen has LS025Q7UX01 68D113174
30 GB HD Model #HTC426030G5CE00
& the 80 GB PHC11052008
Model #? MK8022GAA
Ideally I'd like to come out with 1 iPod and 1 hard/external drive, but would be happy just creating 1 working thing out of these 2 faulty ones. Any ideas?
Is this a good question?
