    Hey, I have a question for you all since I don't feel like making an appointment with the genius bar people to ask them a very simple question. Would it cost me that 100 dollar repair fee to have them fix the power switch on the top of my iPod? I wasn't sure if that fee is just a base fee for any broken component or such. The power switch on top of my iPod is messed up and you need to push really hard with your fingernail to use it. I really appreciate answers from you guys :D

    I just hope they wont charge that 100 dollars. Thats like paying half the price of the iPod itself for a 5 dollar component lol

    They (Apple) don't fix iPods. They replace it with a refurbished unit it under warranty. If not, you have to pay almost full price.
