@Paul - if it won't sync up to your computer in order to do a restore in iTunes, it may be a dead hard drive or logic board.

@Quentin - that is a fairly common issue with these and it requires replacing the headphone module. We sell it in the part list to the right.

Hello, The audio jack on my 160Gb iPod is only playing sound out of side of the headphones or speakers, is that able to be fixed?

Hi, I've been trying to fix my girlfriend's 80 gb model a1238 and I'm having some trouble. When I plug it into my computer (that runs Windows 8.1), I get an error message that says "The last USB device you connected to this computer malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it." I tried hard reseting it, but no matter what I try, I can't get the screen to come on. Is there anything I can do to remedy this?

Hey there, I bought a used iPod classic 30g and the model number on the back cover says A1238. Its says 30gig on it clear as heck. Nothing I have seen so far says this should even exist. The A1238 is supposedly only 80g or 120g, so whats up with this one? The case on this is absolutely mint, like new with zero scratch's. Makes no sense.... [It needs a battery so I can't fire it up to look at the info page just yet.]Anyone know about this? Thanks much.

The problem I have is that it will play music for a while then stop playing, but the screen will still be on and working as if it's playing music. This started happening after many drops. What part of the ipod would I have to check out to see what the problem is? I don't just want to toss it in the trash or anything like that. It works, but needs some tweaking.
