The most common problem that we see is accidental damage. The glass is sat inside an aluminium shell which, if impacted, can press into the glass screen and crack it. Also, heavy items being dropped on to the face of the iPod can crack it. If the iPod is smashed or cracked or the LCD is damaged then we can replace the screen. Unlike some other Apple devices the iPod Touch 5th Generation screen is all sealed together so the glass, touch screen and LCD is all one unit that we replace.
Also known as the digitizer, the glass screen has the touch sensitive digitizer on the bottom layer. If you are having problems with the touch screen not working the screen needs to be repalced. It is not that common for this fault to appear without acidental damage but it has been known. Sometimes though it can be a problem on the logic board that in some cases is not repairable.
The first thing we do before any repair is test the iPod to confirm the fault. There is no way to repair the screen other than replacing it. Almost every iPod we see has some sort of dent or scuff in the housing that we will straighten out as best we can in order for the new screen to fit flush. Some back plates are warped too and can be harder to make flush, but we will do our best.
We then fit and seal a new screen down and test it out. The iPod Touch then goes to our testing bench where we test all repairs prior to dispatch.
