As I moved my guitar amp from the car to the house I guess I crushed the display on my 5th G ipod that was in my pocket. Everything played OK but just a big black blob with blue and red lines on the display.
I went on line bought a new display with opening tools from brand X. I opened the ipod and . . .
Front panel was broken for a while and just got tiered of looking at it. I didn't have the money to purchase a new iPod or send it to go get it fixed. So my friend told me about the ifixit site and ordered what I needed. It saved me a lot of money.
It was fairly simple. Tough part was trying to pry i . . .
I am a shameless U2 fan. One thing I never splurged on was one of the U2 Edition Ipods. (When those came out I was pretty disgusted at U2 for joining with a popular consumer entertainment device, but I digress...). So, hypocrisy in check, I started to shop for a used device online. While shoppin . . .
The battery was old and with little charging capacity and the front panel was scratched!
It took about 30 min to open, dismount, change the parts and put it all together again! Everything went pretty well, except for just one problem: The new front panel had holes that wouldn´t align with the holes . . .
Initially, my iPod video's front panel is broken by sitting on it without mentioned. I would like to purchase a iPod classic, but it's bit expensive, and the battery life and the hard drive in my iPod video are still working perfect. So just want to find a way to replace just the front panel.
As soon . . .
