I already have a 5G white ipod 30gb. So my friend has an iPod 5.5G 30gb white and want to buy my head phone he says that only the left channel is playing on his headphones, well I tryed my new ones on it and sure enough only the left channel. Well I offered to fix it, he says ok, so I take it home and look at the headphone jack, well one of the copper pins was bent away from where it would touch your male headphone jack. I tried every thing, but nothing, finally he calls me I tell him I cant fix it, but He could buy a new jack for $25 well he is the type that doesn't care it is broken. Well when I walked it into his job, I had a nice new crisp $50 Dollar bill in hand, I was like I will buy it for $50, he thought about it for a second said sure. Cha Ching, well I got it home and was testing the jack with more detail, well I tore the metal surround on the jack off and looked at the bent pin, well I touched my pocked knife to it and the male headphone jack and sure enough right channel started working, well the pin was jammed, I took and soldiered a small soldier bubble to the pin and voila it worked. Now instead of paying $75 "50 for the iPod and 25 for the new jack" I payed 50 and fixed it myself, the internet said it was unrepaireble, well I fixed it! and got a $250 iPod for $50!! Wow I bet he is going to be mad, I proably won't tell him I got it fixed lol he might want it back.
