Last weekend when we were heading down to Oregon for R's family reunion, I discovered that my iPod is bust. Actually, I know exactly what's up, but I have no idea how to fix it. The problem is that the "hold" switch—the thing that prevents the device from accidentally being turned on—has broken. I can move it from one side to the other far too easily—and moving it to the "off" zone has no effect.
Since I bought the device over the Internet, I can't just take it back to a store. Of course, I could go look at the paperwork that came with it (miraculously, I think
I know where it is), but, hey, if anyone reading this has any ideas, please let me know.
