I saw that other people were getting shocked from their ipods - i guess this is the reverse situation. I am not sure if this has happened to anyone else, but I accidentally sat the back metal part of my ipod onto an unshielded live sub woofer wire. This basically electrified the case with 50 to 100 watts of power. For some reason this instantly fried the internal speaker and messed up the audio, but everything else works just fine. The audio does not adjust correctly - when you turn it down to zero it is still playing at about half because it stops decreasing the volume halfway down on the slider. It seems to me like the internal components should not have been connected to the back in any way so I don't see how this happened. Anybody know why the audio only goes from half to full volume?
