replacing audio chip in 5th generation 80 gb apple iPod
Is it probable to replace an audio chip in a 80 GB Ipod Classic (thick) at home? and if not, how much would it cost to have one replaced? (Approx.)
I'm the one with the 80 gb ipod classic, idk if you recall, anyways I ordered a new headphone jack and the tools to open the ipod, (what a nerve-racking experience!). I opened the ipod, and it seems that the headphone jack became dislodged at some point because I didn't have to lift the tab, it just came right out. So I reconnected it, and still no sound, none the less it could have become destroyed due to a loose connection, so I replaced it. Noting that the sound doesn't work out of the base connection, and I am waiting for the ipod to start up to test out the new headphone jack, I will know if it is the audio chip or not.
I ordered a new logic board, and installed it. the only thing now is that iTunes says that my iPod is corrupted. The text shows
"iTunes has detected and iPod that appears to be corrupted. You may need to restore this iPod before it can be used with iTunes. You may also try disconnecting and reconnecting the iPod."
And then it shows a folder that gives the link www.apple.com/support/ipod
It wasn't like this before I replaced the logic board
Is this a good question?
