    So i'm taking apart my ipod this very minute and as i was pulling the screen back the digitizers cable (the wire thing) just detached as i was pulling it, it just like fell off. No strain at all, it was even accidental. I'm worried that it will not be able to get back on. Do you guys think it might? (Also, i will consult this thread for help if i run into any more difficulties).

    No, i just figured it out, it was on really loose though, so i think i fixed something else while i was at it

    So i think i found the culprit, the headphone jack is WAY loose, it almost feels like it would fall off if it weren't soldered in.

    I know this might sound really stupid, but do you think that a magnetized tipped screwdriver would mess up my ipod?

    I feel as if it probably would.

    So... The headphone jack is being weird. If its shifted in any direction it only plays from one ear. But if i screw it in more it plays both but if i screw it in all that it should it only plays from one ear.

    That would be a viable option, if i still had a warranty.

    I was too, i just got over the fact that if i screw it up i'm not gonna be able to listen to my music and that stuff.

    It was a great incentive to do a good job.

    Doesn't help it was bout 8 in the morning and i stayed up all night
