ipod nano on/off button

Postby Conrad Knight Socks » 20 Jan 2015, 16:22

has broken - i can't push it in. Again, but this time out of warranty. Is there anything I can do except buy a new one?

Usually repairing or replacing such a part yourself is tricky, if not impossible. The button will most likely be a custom component, so the only means of acquiring a replacement will be to canibalise another Nano, and that may not always be practical.

There are some specialised iPod repair companies out there who may be able to help.
