Opening A Rock

Phil Sheridan -

iPod Classic

iPod Classic Headphone Jack & Hold Switch Replacement

Very difficult

My Problem

Damaged the hold button ribbon while opening ipod.

My Fix

Repair went well, however closing the ipod didn't. It remains open a crack near the top, even though the clips were all bent back down carefully. But the screen is brighter and the music is crisper. At least it seems that way.

My Advice

Minute particles of C4 might be beneficial. I read the instructions thoroughly and they said opening the case would be difficult. They also said replacing the hold switch and jack would be very difficult, but I thought that part was relatively simple. Thank you, it works fine again.
