Default iPod.. chip popped off inside.

So, I dropped my iPod from about waist down 2 days ago.
Wouldn't turn on after.

Popped it open, and the chip next to the battery cable (that connects by the charging port) popped off.

Apple guys said price to repair is about the same as buying a new one

Anyway for me to put it back on?
High tech circuit board super glue?

There isn't a way to solder it on from what I am seeing..

I assume it is a leadless package (with the contacts on the bottom of the plastic package). If you can figure out the orientation, and have a steady hand, you can try the solder wicking technique (solder on the trace pads then lay the part down and heat up the trace and see what sticks).

I have had poor luck repairing surface mount components, so, I won't offer to try it for you.

photo?

if its what I think it is, you can try wicking the solder on... (might want to add a tiney bit to the board first)

surface mount stuff is a biatch to fix.

how many connections does the component have?

I think I'm going to be ghetto about this and make some leads that come off the peice, and solder it to the board.

Ajax, I don't have a camera good enough, I'll try to find one on the web.

Screw Steve Jobs and the horse he rode in on. Even though I own an IPHONE, one of my biggest beefs with Apple is that they are all about creating disposable electronics vs. selling electronics that are designed to be repaired. I'm sure you figured this out just by disassembling your unit.

That part looks like a mini-transformer vs. an IC. The good news is that it's probably not broken. The bad news is that unless I'm mistaken, that part fell off the main board so you can't do a simple module swap (i.e.: if the part came off a small module or you had busted the LCD -- it's a simple matter to swap parts).

If you don't have someone who can surface mount solder the part back on, try calling this guy
Cellular Repair Center‎
977 South Bascom Avenue
San Jose, CA‎ - (408) 289-9771‎

I brought my bosses's old TREO smartphone into the shop a few years ago. The Treo worked but the backlight wouldn't turn on. I replaced the LCD but the problem remained. He took a look at it - gratis - and after disassembly, concluded that it was the backlight circuitry on the system board and not the LCD that was bad. Given that he couldn't source the part, he suggested I just sell it off for parts. I also believe he can do component level repair (not just module) as well (if the parts are available).

It's probably worth a call and a visit.

if it popped off then it probably took the trace leads with it. so good luck. sell it for parts and move on.

Conductive glue might do the trick. It's not meant for high temp applications, but I have no idea how warm the inside of an Iphone gets.

May not work.
Depending on the circuit, the change in capacitance or inductance from the leads (and stuffing them back into the case) may impact the timing.

Last resort, I'm a cheap bastard, rather try and save this one

I thought about this as well, not sure how well it works though.

If you replace it you should get one of these.
