    My son broke his ipod touch 3g 32gig charger port. I can see it is clearly broken. I cant find the part online anywhere. Does anyone know where to find that part?

    I haven't heard of anyone replacing the dock connector before...have you take it to Apple to see what they say?

    I bought it from a liquidator so no warranty. I'm pretty good at fixing electronics doesn't look to hard to fix. I found the part for 2g but not for 3g.

    I'm pretty sure the dock connector on the 2nd and 3rd gen's will be the same, only processor, RAM etc was upgraded. The 2nd gen dock should be fine, although i cannto guarantee it.

    EDIT: Also, you can check on the Apple website and put in your serial number, which with give you the warrenty status. All 3rd gens will still have the manufacturer (Apple) warrenty untill at least September regardless of where you bought it.
    Assuming the previous owner hasn't had it replaced under warrenty before you should be good to go with Apple.

    It's available at tvc-tech.com(China) for $2.00 or from my store at driphonedirect.com(Los Angeles,CA). If you go to the tvc-tech.com site, ask for or email Tom. Goodluck!
