iPod Nano Water Damage: Don’t Wash Your iPod Nano

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

6G_IPod_Nano.svg Some of the stories we receive about devices are interesting enough to share with you. We believed this story was a good lesson for anyone that slides an iPod Nano into a pocket.

The silver Nano came into us with a report that said that the On/Off switch wouldn’t work and the screen wouldn’t light up.

The customer explained that he had washed the Nano in the washing machine. It was unintentional, of course.

When he discovered what happened to his precious music machine, he removed it from the washer and placed it in the freezer for 48 hours. He heard that this was a good way to save a water damage iPod Nano, but it didn’t work quite as he hoped.

It was fine the day he took it out of the freezer, but after a week, the Nano started to act up. The screen wouldn’t light up, so he couldn’t see a thing he was doing. Everything else worked fine. He could hear his music and he could sync it to iTunes.

Over time though, the sound stopped, and even with a Restore it wouldn’t come back. It had died…

When we received it, we found out that that there was water damage in the headphone jack, which likely caused the sound to not work, and there was iPod Nano water damage under the screen and logic board. There was also corrosion on the logic board.

This is a good lesson to everyone. NEVER wash your iPod Nano!

iPod Nano Repair – Common Problems

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

The iPod Nano is a great device. It’s the perfect size to take anywhere, and its simplicity can’t be beat. Like any device though, it does get broken. Some of the most common problems that we see for an iPod Nano repair are:

  • Battery replacement
  • Glass replacement
  • Click wheel stopped working
  • Water damage

Why It Needs a New Battery

You bought the iPod Nano with a charging cable for a reason, so you wouldn’t have to worry about replacing a battery, right? Well, not exactly. When you charge a battery repeatedly, it starts losing its ability to hold a charge. Over time, battery life dwindles, to a point where you can’t take your iPod anywhere without it dying.

This is your sign that it’s time to get a battery replacement. The good news is that it’s a cheap iPod Nano repair to get, which is why so many people have no problem sending it in to us. Certified technicians have the skill to open an iPod up in minutes, switch out the battery, and return it to you good as new.

Think you can replace it yourself? We wouldn’t advise it. Many people send us their half opened iPod after trying to fix it themselves. They usually tell us that they spent hours trying to do it, and then just gave up. It is a complicating process if you haven’t done it before, so why not live life simple and just have someone who knows what to do fix it for you.

iPod Nano Cracked Glass Repair

You dropped your iPod and the glass cracked – not good at all.

Instead of ditching it, get it replaced. When you receive the iPod back, it will look like you never dropped it. It’s a small price to pay compared to buying a brand new device.

Again, if you want to fix it yourself, there’s nothing we can do to stop you, except to remind you that for the cost of buying a new screen and then sitting for hours watching a YouTube video, and then trying to remove tiny screws, you could have it done for you for just a bit more money. Doesn’t that sound so much more convenient?

Repairing the Click Wheel

To repair the click wheel, you have to open up the iPod Nano and disconnect it from the logic board. Then you connect the new click wheel to the logic board making sure that everything is in place, so when you try to put the case on, everything fits inside correctly.

The logic board is the brain of your device. Any false move could cause the iPod to never work again. If there’s a disconnect, the iPod won’t work. If everything isn’t put back in the right place, the case won’t fit.

Water Damage

Water can be deadly to an iPod Nano, and since you take it virtually everywhere, it’s no wonder that many people want to know how to save it. The rice trick may work, but sometimes it doesn’t. That doesn’t mean it’s toast though. It means that a specialist should look at it to see if it’s salvageable. We’ll tell you that in most situations, a water damaged iPod Nano is repairable. We have free diagnostics, so it’s worth sending it in to see if our skilled certified technicians can fix it for you.

We know you hate to see your iPod Nano broken, so we want to repair it for you as quickly as possible. We only use quality parts to ensure your complete satisfaction. Contact us today for more information about how we can fix your iPod Nano.

Price and Tips for an iPod Nano Repair

Monday, August 19th, 2013

If you’re seeking iPod Nano repair, it’s likely you want to know one of three things:

  1. How much it will cost you
  2. If you can do it yourself
  3. Who can do it for you

Let’s tackle the first inquiry for an iPod Nano repair: how much will it cost you.

According to the website, there are two types of iPod Nano repair: basic and battery. For a basic repair, it can cost anywhere from $79 to $129 depending on the generation and gigabytes. The battery replacement charge is $59. These charges do not include shipping.

Apple isn’t the only service provider for the iPod Nano. iResQ also offers quality service, and for a better price. For example, you can get a battery replacement for $49 for a Gen 7 and a much lower price for other Gens. You can learn how much every repair is for each iPod Nano repair by visiting the website.

Can You Do It Yourself?

You could repair your iPod Nano yourself, but do you really want to? Wouldn’t you rather play with your kids? How about watch TV? We bet you would rather take a nap than sit with tiny tools, many screws, and a headache for hours.

Not only that, trying to fix an iPod Nano yourself could end up destroying it. All it takes is one wrong touch, and you’ll have to throw it out.

We understand that you want to save money. Everyone wants to save money, and yes, you can do many things yourself to keep from throwing money away. For example, you can clean your own car instead of taking it to AutoBell car wash. You can make your own food rather than go to a restaurant and have someone else cook for you. Out of all of the things you could do yourself to save money, repairing an iPod Nano isn’t one of them.

Save yourself your sanity and the cost of a new unit by trusting a professional.

Who Will Repair It?

iResQ will repair your iPod Nano. All you have to do is send in your unit. We’ll take care of the rest. Within just a few days, you’ll have it back to you ready to play all of your favorite songs, just as it did before it stopped working.

iPod Headphone Jack Repair

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

You plug in your earphones, press play, and all you hear is music in one ear. You immediately look at your iPod and jiggle the ipod headphone jack repaircord. You may take out the cord and plug it back in. The next thing you know you’re frantically shaking it and thoroughly annoyed.

If you’re lucky enough, you have another pair of earphones. You plug them in, and well, it’s not as lucky as you’d hoped because they don’t work either. You still can only hear music in one ear.

So, what could be going on with your iPod?

It’s likely the iPod headphone jack. Many times, it’s a hardware problem. The headphone jack can become loose, especially when you use your iPod while exercising. All that moving and shaking is bound to affect it in some way.

To ensure it’s not a glitch, follow these steps:

  1. Hold down the power button. Wait for it to turn off and then turn it back on after 10 seconds.
  2. If you haven’t already, plug in a new set of earphones.
  3. Reset your iPod to make sure software isn’t conflicting with it. You can do this by plugging your iPod into your computer and using iTunes to reset it to factory settings. This will erase all your settings, but sometimes, that’s the trick to getting it working again.

If you’ve followed these steps, and it still doesn’t work, it’s time to consider an iPod headphone jack repair.

Yes, you’ll read on the Internet that you can do it yourself. These instructions will tell you to open your iPod carefully, remove the existing jack and installing a new one.  It’s not wise though.

Many people attempt to person an iPod headphone jack repair, and end up breaking their iPod. So, instead of paying a low price to have someone professionally repair it, they end up having to buy a new iPod, which causes significantly more.

At iResQ, we don’t want you to have to buy a new iPod. All of our iPod technicians are certified for a reason. To show you that we have experience opening iPods to fix them. We know what to do, we do it quickly, so you can have your iPod in good working order as quickly as possible.

Trusting Online iPhone Repair Services

Tuesday, June 18th, 2013

online iPhone repair shopWhen most people have a cracked screen or broken device, they turn to the Internet to find the closest place to fix it. They have more trust in the local iPhone repair shop than any other place because it’s familiar to them, but is it always the best choice to have your device fixed? At iResQ, we don’t think so, and here’s why.

Inexperienced Technicians

Many people who have replaced an iPhone screen believe they are an expert in repairing all devices. The problem is that not every device is the same and not every fix is the same. An iPhone is different from a Galaxy, and a Nexus is different from an iPhone. One crack on an iPhone can be much different from a crack on another iPhone. Same goes for iPods, iPads, and more. Treating every case the same could end up troubling to the owner because he may end up with a device that doesn’t function the way they would expect it to when they get it back.

Low Quality Parts

To keep costs low, many iPhone repair shops purchase generic parts. As you already know, generic is usually replicas of original parts, and they are sometimes lower in quality. When you have your device repaired with low quality parts, you may end up with a broken device in just a few months. With high quality parts, you receive a device back with the same integrity as you purchased it new.

Poor Customer Service

Since brick and mortar iPhone repair shops receive a lot of business from locals, they have to push repairs out as soon as possible. This can sometimes mean they don’t take the time to care for customers as they should. Yes, it doesn’t make much sense since reputation is everything in business. But when you are one of the only repair shops in town, many people think they don’t have a choice. Luckily, that is simply not true.

Trusting an Online iPhone Repair Shop

At iResQ, our technicians are certified. What does it mean to be certified? To become certified, our technicians received extensive training on how to fix broken iPhones, iPads, iPods, and more. They are supervised by more experienced technicians until they become just as skilled as they are.

All of the parts iResQ orders are of the highest quality possible. We don’t believe in low quality parts just to get repairs out at the lowest cost possible. We want to ensure that your device ends up back in your hands as good as it was when you first put it in your hands.

Finally, iResQ goes above and beyond to ensure you are pleased with our service. We send you an email when we receive your device; we email you when we start working on your device, and when your device is repaired and being shipped. If there is a problem with your order, we will take care of it. There’s a reason why we have hundreds of positive reviews all over the Internet. We are committed to our customers’ satisfaction!

So, as you’re searching for a local place to get your broken iPhone, iPad, iPod, or any other device you have, consider online iPhone repair shop iResQ. We provide a quick turnaround just like the local shops, and our prices are often much less than theirs are. We look forward to serving you as a customer of iResQ.
