Repair of audio jack?

It seems to me that a replacement audio jack would not be that difficult to do but I am surprised that there is not more on the site for this model about that. Is that really too difficult to do? I realize that there is some unsoldering and resoldering required. I would think that this is a common problem. Just curious.

It is tricky to do, but definitely possible-- just be very careful when you are moving the pieces around, as all the cables are prone to tear. I would suggest looking at an old one first to see how everything goes together, but if that's not possible, take a close look at the guides to see if they help.

Hi Derrick,

Great question! Here's a walk through our thought process:

When we make guides, there is a dual purpose of 1) providing free, good information to the public that empowers them to fix their own items, and 2) providing parts that correspond with these guides that can be purchased by a trusted company. Although we wish everything could be as free as the guides, we can't feed our families on thumbs up! :)

Having that said, it is important for us to offer parts that are trustworthy and tested (as opposed to many eBay offerings that are cheaper but are often horror stories by the end of the day). Most parts like the headphone jacks are really not test-able by us, due to the soldering necessity. Rather than offering parts that are untested and making guides for these parts, we prefer to sell parts that are tested as working, and have guides that reflect these parts (in this case, the iPod Touch logic boards with the jack attached).

This gives those who are new to this and a bit apprehensive about taking apart their machines the opportunity to repair their stuff with a skill level that they can handle, and those who are more experienced can still find the solder-necessary parts elsewhere to accomplish their repair!

Ultimately though, we desire for those who are experienced at these kind of repairs to make their own guides to post on iFixit, so all the information is freely available for all skill levels! This feature is rolling out piece by piece, and should be available in its entirety soon.

The point of iFixit is everyone can fix things themselves, and the step by step guides make it easy for a n00b to do so. You should be fine if you follow the instructions.

You may want to learn to solder first though, practice on a piece of steel wool or something.

i think his point is that there is NOT a good guide on iFixit.com.
