  • Answer to: Why does the backlight flicker after screen repair

    It happened to me after I replaced a screen. I totally agree with iwillfix. A lot of people say you must turn brightness/auto-bright off/on, wait a little, sing a song, yadda yadda, but if you just wait you're good to go.
  • Answer to: Crazy power issue? can you give me any advice!

    It was too long ago it dropped into water? If not, you can try open it and let it in a dry place during some hours. If it was too long ago, look for rusty contacts on the conectors.

  • iPod Photo Troubleshooting

    Hey, I had a 60Gb iPod Photo that kept rebooting by itself, it didn't even past the Apple logo, just like the description in the last troubleshoot.

    I managed to fix it by entering the diagnostics mode (explained in the link). The iPod entered the diag menu normally and then I choose 'Disk Mode'. As soon as it started in disk mode, I was able to restore it using the iTunes. I searched a lot on the ifixit but I didn't find nothing about it.
