    My backpack got ran over by my moms car, and somehow cracked the screen.
    Not just a minor crack in the screen, the insides are like shattered, and nothing works other than the backlight.
    Im assuming i cant replace the screen, or get a replacement since i have had it since last x-mas.
    is there anything i can do?




    just wanted to confirm that there is nothing i can do :wtc:

    oh and is there a new model of ipod video comming out soon?
    if so, ill wait and buy a new one, assuming this one right now is 100% fucked

    What model ipod, the nanos had problems with screens cracking in peoples pockets and there may be some recall. Apple can quote the repair, im not sure of anyone who supplies parts except batteries.

    there's no way you'll get warranty replacement. while you can get the screen replaced, it's expensive enough that you might as well just get a new iPod (probably in the neighborhood of $150)

    when i busted my iPod screen (totally shattered as well), i just renamed my playlists so the one i'd usually play was at the top of the list so i could just click a few times and have music playing... :dunno: like a high capacity iPod shuffle ;)

    there's a website (i forget the name) dedicated entirely to buying junked iPods so they can salvage parts and do repairs for other people. you might be able to get a little money for it, but don't hold your breath

    You don't usually get money when you make donations.
