    Hi,
    I accidently charged my iPod with 12 Volts instead of 5 Volts. I purchased a cheap system that supposes to provide a power charge, as well as, load speakers.
    My iPod is dead once I placed it in the charger.
    Is it possible to fix it? Such as change an internal fuse? Or there is no such thing in the iPod.. and the motherboard is busted now?
    Please help.

    Thanks,

    Mu

    Hardware fault=maybe
    non-water damage=most likely
    frying=almost definetly.

    The ipod could have fried itself, you never know, and it couldn't hurt sending it back. BTW th e board is about 200 and you need to do it yourself and some equipment tats about 300 apple or new one is better.

    Have an apple store near you?

    My brother did the same thing to his 3rd gen iPod, brought it into the store said it didn't work, they Che ked it for water damage and replaced it no charge with a new one.

    They should have over voltage protection up to 12 volts on these things, the fir wire sync cables are all 12v. That should be an anticipated mistake that apple should protect the device from.

    Why do they keep changing the connections ect on the "standard" iPod dock connection?

    It pisses me off that my $100 home clock doesn't work with my new iPods.....
