As some of you might know, I have a trashed iPod (no use repeating me), and I think it has a broken logic board because it won't charge or anything.IMG_0042[1].JPGLet the pictures do the talking! Front of iPod. LCD screen is gone. IMG_0043[1].JPGBack of iPod. Note the bent side and the exposed ribbon cableIMG_0045[1].JPGHome button exposed. IMG_0046[1].JPGCamera and things exposed. The wifi thingy is to the right.IMG_0048[1].JPGNote the giant bend near the side. Greatly exagerated in this photo.


Now, my question: The liquid damage indicator is in the headphone jack, so I took a flashlight and took a look in, and the liquid damage indicator was white. No water! I would upload pic's but it's too dark. Now, there's no water damage, so that means the battery and logic board should be all right, right? Nope. The iPod won't be charged, won't be reconigzed and all other weird stuffs. Also, note that there is a little bend where the place the 18 pin charger goes in but not inside it, on the steel (or metal thing I don't know what it is) so that the USB connecter won't go COMPLETELY in. Thanks everyone!
