iPod Classic / iPod Video Repair and Servicing

Use this listing to submit an order for a repair service for your existing iPod classic or iPod video.

iPod classic can develop a number of different faults - from a failed hard drive, to screen damage, to complete failure of the main logic board. We can offer a repair and service for your iPod, to enable you to continue using it for many years. We offer a 2 year warranty on all of the repairs we undertake for complete peace of mind.

Get in touch with us, and we can diagnose many faults without you needing to send the iPod to us. For more involved diagnoses, you will have to send your iPod over so that we can inspect it fully. Once we've had a look at your iPod, we can send you a personalised quote for the repairs needed.

All quotes are no-obligation and if you don't wish to proceed with a repair we can ship your iPod back to you completely free.

Available Options

All repair quotes are made on a case-by-case basis. Some of the possible repairs that could be done include

  • Standalone battery replacement (using 750mAh battery)
  • Standalone hard drive replacement (using a refurbished drive)
  • LCD replacement
  • Headphone jack assembly replacement
  • Main logic board replacement

All  services inlcude a 2 year warranty for the components repaired.

Any refurbishment service can also be combined with a repair service. Message about the fault in question and we can quote a repair fee for your chosen service. If you're looking for a custom colour faceplate / rear casing, an upgraded extended battery or any other customised iPod classic, please have a look at our other listings!

Compatability Considerations

Certain models of iPod classic and iPod video have limitations on what capacity of storage they can work with. A chart is available in the listing images. iPod video (5th Generation, glossy plastic front) is compatible with any capacity, but bear in mind some 5th gen models have difficulty with song databases that have more than 20,000 tracks. This limitation can be worked around by using Rockbox, if desired.

iPod classic is limited to 128GB of flash storage due to a difference in the iPod's firmware. However, the final version of iPod classic (160GB 2009) doesn't have this limitation, so can be upgraded with capacities beyond 128GB. You can identify this version by its software version (2.0.4 or 2.0.5 if fully updated) or by its thickness (10.5mm thick instead of 13.5mm).

Initial shipping (from you to us) is the buyer's responsibility. Please let us know if there are issues or delays. If we don't get an iPod within the disptach time (30 days) we won't be able to ship it back in time! Also be aware that if we get an iPod that is not upgradeable (dead, not working, not compatible with the chosen upgrade) we will have to ship your iPod back un-upgraded. Take care to understand the limitations before placing an order!

Bear in mind that any data on the iPod will of course be lost in the process. Make sure your music / data is backup up before you send it! Additionally, while the aim is to get refurbishments done within a few days, issues might arise and delays sometimes happen. We'll keep in contact if this is the case.

If you're an international buyer, please message ahead of any order so an arrangement for shipping can be agreed. Things have gotten a little hairy for EU shipping so bear that in mind if you're in Europe. Other overseas buyers will need to be aware that shipping (both from you and from us) will be somewhat costly. As per new customs rules between the UK and the rest of the world, expect customs charges on ANY shipment from any location.
