My iPod is dead (HELP!)

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Thats right :(

I have a iPod classic and basically the navigation buttons are dead. All except the scolling ringy thingy. I noticed they were a bit slow and I had to press them several times and after a week... dead. I'm going to return it as soon as possible. Has this ever happened to you? If so did you fix it? :(

    Posted by The_Muffin_man That happened to my 2 ipods I owned, then I chucked the shit, became a mac hater and bought a creative zen. Best thing I ever did.
    Doesn't really help his current situation though... :/ You still have a warranty on this?

    Never happened to me. The wheel does occasionally go un-responsive, but that's fixed by pressing the menu button, and it comes back to life. :p Strange problem though - it works on the basis of the electromagnetism in your body. Maybe you're about to die? Or already dead? :)

    I've had my classic for over a year now (got it christmas 2007), not had any problems with it, except the scroll wheel occasionally doesn't work (a quick flick of the hold switch to on then off does the trick). Good luck with it, I wouldn't tell the shop that you dropped it. ;)

    Well if it's used you do know that it's sensitive stuff. Anways try cleaning it, and if you can take it apart and clean the inside of it, since I'm sure it's caked over. Also, UP-FUCKING-GRADE! That shit's old.

    They make new iPod Classics as well. They're the best price-wise and capacity-wise.
