Broken iPod Headphone Jack
I have a 5th gen 60 GB iPod. A while ago, the headphone jack casing cracked, and made the headphone jack wiggly. It still worked okay for a long time, but recently it has become worse and the right channel doesn’t make proper contact. I googled for “broken ipod headphone jack” and found this page explaining the repair procedure. It linked to www.idemigods.com as a source of replacement parts. I ordered a replacement headphone jack / hold switch assembly for $32 including shipping, and I’m going to try to fix it myself. When the jack gets here I’ll photo-document the disassembly and (hopefully) reassembly of my iPod.
