LCD Got Broken

People break their LCD in a number of ways. Frankly some iPods are prone to easy screen breakage. The 1st Generation iPod Nano had long slender case that was about 3/16" tall. Its case was very prone to flexing while the LCD inside wasn't. They are a fairly frequent replacement. That's also why Apple chose to make the 2nd generation Nano with a one piece extruded aluminum outer case. The 2nd Gen Nano is near indestructible. The 3rd and 4th Generation Nano models have been similarly rugged

First, let's mention something, the labor rate I charge is the same. If I open up your iPod I'll do all the things you need to have done to it, all at the same time, for *ONE* labor rate of $40. If you want the LCD replaced and a battery installed... that's just one labor rate of $40.

PLUS from that same $40 I also pay the shipping back to you. Other places charge $8 to $38 for shipping back to you, it's included here... but it is just surface delivery.
