So I sat on my iPod. And it made a painful cracking sound as the liquid crystals of the display floated freely across its surface, creating an ugly black smear effectively #%%&#$ half of my screen…
Out of warranty, to change the screen of this iPod (5th Gen, Video) costs 129$. Hmm…. Let’s check Amazon.
2. New Screen
Total Price: +- 25$
Now the problem is, how to actually change the screen. Well, just Google it!
I followed this one. And it took me 10mins to have my new screen installed (and some dust-cleaning as well (: )
Just be careful when opening the thing not to let the click-wheel come lose. Mine did and that’s why it took 10 mins..
I should have been an engineer :D
P.S. There also other tutorials on youtube that might help further. Sometimes you can’t see where to click, where to push, and other videos show other perspectives so it’s handy to watch 2 or 3 while you replace the thing.
