    Hi there,

    I am hoping someone out there can help I have an Ipod Touch 2g 8gb and underneath the Home button I believe there is a small gold coloured block know as the conductor block to make the home button work..

    My question is can you buy that small part if so from where ? or is there another way in which it can fixed or replaced? As mine seems to be missing in action.



    thanks

    I haven't seen that particular part available, but if you know how to solder, you can just solder a short 24 gauge insulated wire between what't left of the conductor block on the logic board and the gold pad on the back of the digitizer - just above the button where the conductor block...um...conducts! Then carefully tuck the wire in when you snap in the digitizer.

    No fun in that - if it breaks, then you can pick up a shiny new 3G and sell me the busted one!
