View Full Version : Can anyone suggest how i can fix my iPod

Dec 17, 2007, 07:55 PM
I recently became re-acquainted with my old 15GB 3G iPod. However it has some issues. It powers on and the HDD gives a loud speed up sound (kinda like a plane prepping for take off) and then the iPod just dies abruptly within 4 seconds.

Im not sure if its the HDD or battery but at this point i'd like to replace both and bring the iPod back to life. Any idea how i can do this?. Are there people i can pay to fix it for a decent price or do i have to get the parts and do a DIY fix?

Suggestions will be greatly appreciated as i love this thing it was my first ever Apple product and has alot of sentimental value to me. Also the 3G iPod is the best designed iPod ever IMHO
