    Hello,
    i just experienced awful situation. I was charging my iPod Touch 4, and then some smoke appeared in part about home button. I immediately disconnected it. I tried to connect it to my Win PC. It charged well, but iTunes didn't recognize it (even the win autorun didn't appear). I also tried it on Linux Ubuntu but without luck as well. What part can be broken ? (logic board ?)

    Take it to the apple store but back it up to iCloud first. Apple will exchange i think if they see that it is not recognized by a computer but don't tell them that it was smoking when you were charging it.

    Or you could be a good person and tell them what happened.

    Scum.

    Yeah but I've already broken screen so I don't have variety anymore. I just want to know which IC/chip on logic board can be fried. Any ideas ?

    Are you thinking of replacing a chip on the logic board?

    how did you charge it anyway? Through computer USB and smoke came out?

    U can tell apple that and they should claim you new one since you didn't do anything wrong. U didn't plug it into third party and fried the cpu.
