It has been a wild ride here at Mission Repair since my last Tech Tid-Bit! I apologize for the delay but I was waiting for something really good to post! Today, I would like to talk about the 4th Gen iPod Touch Screen Repair! For the one’s who have done this repair before it is a pretty basic repair when it comes to fixing an Apple Device. For those that have not had experience fixing these, I do not recommend trying it. Make sure to bring it to a professional!
Well, we stumbled across something very interesting when repairing these little guys and boy did it stump us. We would power the unit up and test all functions prior to repairing the device. Of course the only thing that needed to be replaced was the screen. I won’t get in to detail on the process of repairing the screen. We simply want that to be our own little secret! I was informed from our Sales Manager Lennie that we started getting phone calls about the 4th Gen iPod Touches that we were fixing and they were no longer functioning at all after we had replaced the screen and shipped the units back. First it started out with a couple, then a few more, then quite a few more after that. Needless to say, we have some of the best technicians here at Mission Repair that are wonderful at solving problems! Indeed we received the units back under our No Hassle Warranty program. We installed screen after screen and could not get the iPod to power on. Finally, our Specialty Technician Matt decided to take a screen off an already broken device and install it. WHAM! The unit powered right up and worked just fine. We also noticed that after repairing the screen the unit still worked just fine as long as there was battery life left. It only happened when the iPod would completely die and had to be recharged again.
Im sure you are sitting there wondering why this happened. Well I am here to tell you. There is a software glitch in these iPod Touches and the IC Chip in the replacement screens. The IC Chip is only compatible with units that have been updated to newest software available from iTunes. If you are still having issues with your 4th Generation iPod Touch after a screen replacement please give us a call and we will help you get things up and running! You can even email me at email@example.com and I will gladly assist you! I hope this little Tid-Bit of knowledge will help all the fellow technicians out there that have experienced this issue! Until next time!!
We quietly released a Deal Of The Week last Friday that I’d like to talk about today. For the next remaining few days we have a deal on the 4th Generation iPod Touch Front Glass & Lcd Repair! It is currently at 10% off its normal price and with todays Cyber Monday deals, I think this service is going to be a steal for those thrifty shoppers online today.
So if you will allow, lets do the math together. Deal Of The Week – 12% Cyber Monday Coupon + Free Shipping = An Awesome Deal! Now I am no mathematician or rocket scientist, but this equation seems like a winning one if you have a broken 4th Generation iPod touch.
So if you find yourself carrying around an iPod that looks like the one shown above, save yourself some glass shards and some cash be ordering a repair service today!
During our morning meeting, Ryan and myself got to talking about the different generations of the iPod Touch and how timeless they all have all really been. When it comes to the repairs we offer, it is eye opening when you look at the numbers and see the amount of older generations still being repaired.
We know the main reason to repair and not replace is a monetary reason, but the other reasons people repair instead of replace is pretty logical. Here are some of the most common answers we receive when we ask the question “Why repair, instead of replace?” I am using these answers as a poll as well. Tell me what your reason to repair your iPod Touch instead of replacing!
Whether you are looking for a simple headphone jack replacement in your 1st Generation iPod Touch or a screen replacement in your 4th Generation iPod Touch we have you covered all the way. For those of you thinking of replacing your iPod Touch instead of repairing, please give us a call first. Lets us talk you you into saving a boat load of cash 🙂
