MANY thanks for your input!
EVERYONE that I have been contacted by on the site has been WONDERFUL. Response to my question was very quick very caring, and most importantly, very accurate.
I'm going to surprise my grandson with the ipod Touch. I have his ipod backed-up to my Powerbook, so I'll be able to give him aal of his content on a new ipod. I'm already excited to see his face.
So I'll be back when I need help again, and I will be sure to refer everyone I know to ifixit.com!
Many thanks again,
Thanks to mayer, pollytintop, chris, and oldturkey03 for your time and your help. You helped me to learn and check in advance about a products repairibility.
How old is your grandson? Where do you live?
the nano 5thG is a real test of endurance and patience...I gave mine to oldturkey03 because I never wanted to look at it again. just take a look in answers and you'll find OT, not sure if he wants work though! But he's great for advice on all things ipod and he'll help you do this fix.
I agree with Polly on using OT if he wants to do it, but it probably won't be cheap.
Agreed, would give it a try if you're into DIY puzzles but to have another person do it that isn't a good friend would be half the way to replacement i'd imagine.
Richard, the iPod Nano is a royal PITA to work on :-) It is very tricky to work on due to the amount of technology crammed into a very small space. Of course I am willing to help any way I can, and I am not into doing this for money. It is a great hobby and lots of fun. If you would like me to assist you with it, contact me via my email. The address is in my profile....Thanks go out to my colleagues for their trust in me.
