umesh thapa, if your iPod does not produce, or produces scratchy sound consistently, I believe that the fault is with your audio IC. There are places that do the repair on the logic board, if you do not want to change IC's yourself :-) Of course, you can replace the board which might be anywhere between $45-100

hey pal can you tell where can I get my IC's changed in India and how much will it cost,, and is it worth to change it.

by

Sorry, I do not know where you can get it done in India or even how much it would cost. Since it is an IC, you would be looking at a sophisticated undertaking, possible a shop that does reflow's might help. I would suggest a new logic board.

by

Thanks a tons for your valuable suggestion. I believe its time to dump this Ipod and go for new one.

by

Nah, don't dump it. Get a logic board for around $40 and either sell it or keep saving your money....;-) Thanks for accepting my answer.

by

I admire your suggestion, but its difficult in India to get a new or old Logic Board and no one is here to repair or replace it either.
