Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2009 1:23 PM (in response to David Martin1)mine just did the same thing last week. i thought it was just the headphone jack, so i tried it in my dock and my car adapter that hooks up through the bottom, but all i get is a weird buzzing noise. if you look at the screen, it looks like it should be playing. but no such luck. any ideas?

Almost all sites that sell the parts have online videos that show you how to do it. I have replaced them as well as batteries and screens. I encourage anyone that has some mech skill and there Ipod is off Warranty to try it. If you have a great fear or are all thumbs then of course send it somewhere. One advantage of doing your own repairs is that while you have it open you might as well replace the battery with a longer life batt and also the screen with a brighter one for about the same cost as 3rd party doing the work on just the jack and hold switch. A lot of the sites send the case tools and jewelers screwdriver with the part. or at any hardware store, or where every tools are sold you can get a jewelers screwdriver.
