No audio? Replace the headphone jack!

Unable to unlock? Replace the lock switch, which is an integral part of the headphone jack sub assembly.

  1. Apple designed their new iPods to be very difficult to take apart without destroying major components. Because of the metal faceplate, the metal backing, and the 13 (yes, 13) metal clips holding the case together, this is one of the toughest iPods to disassemble.

    • Proceed with caution and the warning that you may significantly damage your iPod beyond its present condition. Also, you may want a few extra pairs of plastic opening tools during installation, as they are easy to ruin when opening the iPod. Have fun!

    • Before opening your iPod, ensure that the hold switch is in the locked position.

  2. Opening this iPod is challenging. Don't get discouraged if it takes you a few tries before the iPod is opened. One thing to notice is the angle of the plastic opening tool's tip while inserting it into the iPod. Ideally, the angle should be as vertical as possible while still clearing the edge of the rear panel.

    • At an angle, carefully insert a putty knife about 1/8 inch into the seam between the two opening tools.

    • There are thin metal rails running along the inside of the rear panel, so take great care when inserting the putty knife.

    • Once the putty knife has cleared the lip of the rear panel, pivot the putty knife so that it is vertical, and carefully (but firmly) wiggle it straight down into the gap between the opening tools.

  5. Push with your fingers on the rear panel behind the putty knife to minimize bending. Slowly flex the putty knife, as shown in the picture, to ensure that most of the metal tabs on this side of the iPod are disengaged.
    • Push with your fingers on the rear panel behind the putty knife to minimize bending. Slowly flex the putty knife, as shown in the picture, to ensure that most of the metal tabs on this side of the iPod are disengaged.

    • The theory behind this method is, rather than attempting to not bend the rear panel at all, to bend it in a favorable manner that allows you to easily restore it later. Therefore, any bend in the sides of the rear panel should be drawing the lip of the rear panel away from the iPod, rather than pushing out on the curved surface. This method also disengages as many of the side clips as possible.

  6. Remove the putty knife from the iPod and reinsert it closer to the corner of the iPod, using the same wiggle method as before.
    • Remove the putty knife from the iPod and reinsert it closer to the corner of the iPod, using the same wiggle method as before.

    • If at all possible, do not bend the corner of the rear panel.

  7. Between the lock slider and headphone jack, insert a plastic opening tool into the seam between the front and back of the iPod.
    • Between the lock slider and headphone jack, insert a plastic opening tool into the seam between the front and back of the iPod.

    • You may find it easier to carefully flex the putty knife downward in order to create more of a gap for the opening tool, but be sure not to bend the corner of the rear panel!

  8. Near the center of the display, carefully insert a metal spudger into the gap created by the plastic opening tool.
    • Near the center of the display, carefully insert a metal spudger into the gap created by the plastic opening tool.

    • It is easy to create a noticeable bump in the rear panel here that is difficult to repair. When prying the tab free, try to have the metal spudger pivot on the edge of the rear panel rather than bending the rear panel outward.

    • Using the metal spudger, disengage the single clip on the top of the iPod.

  9. Near the other top corner, insert an opening tool into the seam between the front and back of the iPod
    • Near the other top corner, insert an opening tool into the seam between the front and back of the iPod

  10. On the other side, insert an opening tool into the seam between the front and back of the iPod.
    • On the other side, insert an opening tool into the seam between the front and back of the iPod.

    • You may find it easier to angle the opening tool stuck in the top corner in order to create a sufficient gap.

  11. Remove the plastic opening tool from the top corner and insert it into the seam between the front and back of the iPod, leaving at least 1.5 inches of space between the two tools (as done on the other side).

    • Take a deep breath!

    • Gently (GENTLY) disengage the remaining clips on the rear panel by pulling the tops of the front and rear panels away from each other (think of the bottom of the iPod as a hinge), taking great care not to damage the ribbon cables holding the two halves together.

  19. Use a spudger to lift the retaining flap holding the connector cable.
    • Use a spudger to lift the retaining flap holding the connector cable.

      • The retaining flap only needs to lift up 2 mm. This is a sensitive connector and too much force can remove it from the logic board.

    • On a clean, hard surface, lay the rear panel on its side. Carefully but firmly push down on it, rolling the entire lip side back into its proper spot.

    • It may be necessary to do this multiple times in order to achieve optimal straightness on the sides. It is better to have the edges of the case pushed in slightly too far rather than not far enough, because the reseating of the front panel will bend the rear panel into its correct alignment.

    • Now that the rear panel is back to a beautiful condition, you can move on to repairing the iPod!

  25. The battery is attached to the rear panel with adhesive. Be careful not to tear the orange headphone jack or hold button ribbon cables when removing the battery. Use a spudger to lift the battery and the attached orange cable out of the iPod. If you have a 160 GB iPod, the battery will be thicker than the one pictured.

where do you buy new headphone jack?

alxg000 - 답글

The headphone jack is part of an assembly, on a cable with the hold switch. We sell this assembly for thin iPod classics (80, 120, or 160 GB) here, and for the thick (160 GB) variety here.
