I need to mow the lawn today and it can take a few hours to do that. With no iPod it is one of the most boring things I do. I usually listen to audio books and it makes mowing the lawn really not that big a deal. In order to try to make this a more enjoyable experience I decided to try to fix our iPods.
I found a few different sites with various instructions on how to fix your broken iPod. I opened my first iPod up and tried the “folded paper method”. With the clicking sounds, it isn’t terribly surprising that it didn’t work. I might buy a new hard drive for it since they only run around $40.
Now that I “tested” opening an iPod on my older one, it was time to see what I could do about the newer one. The color iPod was a little tougher to open, but open it I did. I was going to try the “folded card” method, but noticed that the hard drive cable appeared as though it was not plugged in all the way on one side. I firmly pressed the pins back in, closed up the iPod, and I’m back in business! The iPod is working again!
Now, off to mow the lawn and hit up one of my favorite audio books.
