It pains me to report a problem with an Apple product – especially seeing as how I may be a Mac owner very soon (more on that later) – but my iPod is playing up.
It seems the casing at the top, around the headphone port, has cracked a little, and one consequence is that I can now only get sound in one ear (even with different headphones). If I firmly squeeze the iPod in certain places near the top, the sound in both ears comes back intermittently.
A quick google of the problem shows up a page on the rather marvellous Wikihow, and the instructions on how to buy the replacement part and fix the problem seem clear. However, I am one of the most unpractical people around, and am rather feart of opening up a piece of electrical equipment without competent supervision, a pair of scientist’s goggles and a labcoat.
Anyone else experienced this difficulty? Any Appleheads’ advice would be gratefully received.
