@Tiffany - it may still be difficult to get to. You can see the headphone module part in the part list to the right. That will show you what you'll see when taking it apart. You can always just replace it as well.

The tip of my headphones broke off in my iPod Classic. If I take it apart as in the above video will I be able to get it out? I've tried every other method of getting out other than taking the iPod apart. Thanks!

@David - if the clip isn't broken you usually can get it back in place and secure it with some electrical/kapton tape.

@Powerbook Medic - The clip that holds the power cable on the board on mine has come loose and fallen off (it made a rattling noise until i opened it up) is this fixable and if so how? Thanks

Hi there, When I push down the hdd's little black bar/hinge (to lock the ribbon cable) it broke! I tried to just insert the cable bit doesn't work and it displayed a big read X! Is there any ways to fix this, otherwise I need to buy a new hdd which I think it's a pity cos by this little black hinge. Thanks! Regards, Tengo

@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.
