    Ok guys. My friend cracked the screen on his iPod touch 2g, and I offered to replace it. He gave me an iPod touch 3g to use as parts - it had water damage. I replaced the screen, but now it is not responsive to touch. I have made sure that all of the cables are plugged in correctly, but it makes no difference. What may I have done wrong?

    Replacing touch screens is a very simple procedure, if done correctly. Although, if you damage the ribbon in any way, you could damage the connection. I believe that to be the problem in this case. Ether that, or you didn't buy a touch screen, or you bought a defective factory second screen.

    Try taking it apart and reconnecting the ribbon, boot it up while its apart, you will be able to use the unit, see if the screen works.

    Cheers,
    Steve
