.... am I better off doing it myself?
If you have the skills to do it yourself and cost is your concern, why wouldn't you? At least you wouldn't have to worry about some unskilled tech scratching up your device.(2) Mini 1.66 Ghz Duo Core • MacBook 1.83 Ghz Duo Core, Mac OS X (10.5.8), (2) B+W G3/500 • Gigabit G4/1.6 Ghz Dual • iPod Touch 32GB 3G
Currently Being ModeratedJan 27, 2010 8:23 AM (in response to sparky67)Well I do have some basic skill, but I wouldn't be 100% sure that I wouldn't destroy the whole thing.
I phoned up again to see if I could get put through to the genius bar or something and they quoted me £147, when a brand new 16GB Nano is £136, I will risk it, and if it goes wrong I will get a Nano.iMac 2.4GHz, iPhone OS 3.1.2

There are also online repair services where you can send it in, or buy parts, tools, & get free tutorials.(2) Mini 1.66 Ghz Duo Core • MacBook 1.83 Ghz Duo Core, Mac OS X (10.5.8), (2) B+W G3/500 • Gigabit G4/1.6 Ghz Dual • iPod Touch 32GB 3G
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 9, 2010 10:59 AM (in response to thejanssens)I'm having the same problem and it appears from the reading that I've done it's a pretty common issue with these models. Mine is 47 days out of warranty and Apple tech support told me it would cost $199 to fix the audio jack. What a waste of money. Anyone know of a good repair shop in the States i could get a quote from? If I ever buy another ipod (which is doubtful at this point) i'll be sure to buy apple care. Consumer Reports always advises against purchasing extended warranties but i'm finding electronics is one category where it's a good idea.Ipod Touch
