    I got a used ipod touch 2nd generation 8gb, so when it arrives i noticed that it wouldn't charge, when i took the connector out , I saw that some of the pins where missing, and also some where all bended.
    Can anybody tell me if it's repairable, and when can i get replacement for it?

    Than you

    Did you get it from the Apple refurb store or from ebay or something similar?

    If its from Apple refurb then you have a 1 year guarantee, just like a brand new iPod.
    If not, then check if the seller you got it from does some sort of guarantee or replacement policy.

    Since you've got nothing to lose, try getting a pair of tweezers and try to straighten out the connectors.

    Or you could simply buy a new one. Do a google search, you're 100% guaranteed to find a good supplier out there. :rolleyes:
