iPod Repair Service

One of our forum members is offering his services for the repair of iPods.

“Thats right, I am an independent worker folks. I have been fixing these things for quite some time now.  As stated, I repair all iPods (depending on what parts are needed) I also buy non-working ones as well! I always have cash on hand in my PayPal account to buy these from people. If you or someone you know needs an iPod fixed please email me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

“Well, I started out making repairs when the iPods first came out. I am an electronics engineer at Western Michigan University. I am PayPal verified and will use escrow for the customer’s protection. I provide estimates of repairs and also determine whether the iPod is fixable or not. I have broken iPods laying around here from time to time so I can use them to fix other iPods for people. I run hardware diagnostics on all iPods that come into my possesion and most of the time can either fix them or buy them for a great price.”

Connecting the charger to it, it displays the Apple logo and then ticks over to display a folder icon with an exclamation point - holding down the menu and centre buttons together displays DISK MODE with a big tick on the screen. It still charges just fine and the battery has no problems

I just got my lcd screen fixed by them and it was great having my ipod back.  but unfortunatly when i turned it on the hard drive was all messed up.  i sent in a completly good working ipod and got back one where the hard drive crashed.  i took it to apple store and realized that this wasn’t my original ipod, the serial number was different than the one i purchased.  which inturn my warranty is gone too now with apple.  all i had asked for was to fix my lcd screen, nothing else. and it comes back to me with completly different parts.  as you can see i am extreamly upset by this.  just thought you all should know.

I tested the repair option from Germany - for only £ 19 whole repair of my HP iPod and for £ 27 they put in a new battery of my wife´s mini. http://www.podmod.org. took 4 days to get it done with shipment. english support, local rate phonenumber, worth a try.

My ipod mini ( the latest model) will not turn on.  The screen is black and I am very careful not to drop it.  I don’t want to lose the music saved.  What can you do for me?

my ipod touch 2nd gen. has a cracked screen but it works just fine. one time my friend dropped it and now the headphone jack doesnt work and everytime i try to listen to music through my headphones, there’s barely any sound coming out. i tried 5 different type of headphones but they all sound the same.. then one time i tried it again and the speaker plays in the background along with the headphones but the sound in the headphones sound “crappy”. what can i do to fix this problem?
