Thanks for the fast reply.
The store mostly has a 2 year warranty but i'm not sure what to communicate to them.
I doubt the store will know about above info so if i explain this to them am i diminishing my own changes?
Does this "just happen" or is it because i did something wrong/faulty usage?
My personal opinion is that large numbers of reallocs are either a sign of "fault free" premature death of the drive, or a result of extreme treatment. The operating limits hidden in the small print say 0-50C so if you let it get outside that range there is a potential "neglect" angle. On the other hand if the drive is failing and as a results starts to run at a higher temperature than normal then who can say which is cause and which is effect. They are sold as devices you can take with you when running or working out so they ought be able to withstand a certain degree of use. Dropping from a significant height would be another matter, as would exposure to too much moisture. Only you know how well you've looked after it but from what you say I see unexpected early drive failure which ought to covered by warranty. The stats, if you show them, should help establish that simply restoring the device and popping on one or two test songs is not a sufficient demonstration that the device is healthy.
Hi I'm back from last summer. I had an ipod cassic last year and i posted the diagnostics and you told me to see if i could get a replacement with my warranty. Well, I've had the replacement since then and just recently I was just listening to music an it just stopped and froze so Pressed the menu and center button then the screen said connect to iTunes. I connected it and iTunes said it had been corrupted. Soon after that, the ipod screen went to the apple logo. It wont sync or even connect with iTunes anymore. All I can do is go to the ipod diagnostics and test menu but other than that its just the apple logo. I also did a diagnostic if that'll help any:
Pending Sectors: 64
PowerOn Hours: 71
Temp: Current 29c
Temp: Min 4c
Temp: Max 40c
I'm guessing this is a rediculous questions since my numbers are much higher than the original posters..
Pending Sectors: 24
PowerOn Hours: 132
Temp: Current 29C
Temp: Min 54C
Temp: Max 241 C
I've only had my iPod since last christmas and it dissapoints me that it isn't working.. Any postive indication that I need a new iPod would be helpful. Thanks!
It is an ex-iPod. Way too many reallocs. If I recall the min-temp on production is set to 10 C and it should only be able to fall. Solder typically melts around 200-240C so it is unlikely that it really got that hot. Both values indicate that it has gone wrong in some fashion. If you mean December 2013 then it should be a clear warranty exchange. If you meant December 2012 and you live in Europe then in principle Apple are obliged to give you a 2 year warranty whatever it says in their original paperwork. However if the device shows significant signs of wear and tear they can blame that rather than a manufacturing defect.
hi, i've read through all these pages. my numbers are in some respects lower than others. i've had this ipod for at least 4 years so, i don't think i have warranty as an option. my numbers are as follows:
current temp 18c
min temp 14c
max temp 46c
the second time i did the diagnostic the start stop went up to 75, and the pending to 12. when i try to run the diagnostic. when i try to erase using the disc utility it says "can't repair disk 1s2". wondering if i there is hope or if i have to replace?
