Replace the LCD screen on a 3rd Gen iPod Nano

This video shows you how to replace the LCD screen on a third generation iPod nano. Using a plastic safe pry tool, run it along the edges of the iPod, releasing the clips. Once the clips have been released, you should be able to remove the back cover. There are six exposed screws on the bottom of the inside back cover, remove all of them. Next remove the click wheel ribbon cable from the jaw connector. To do this, use the pry tool to lift the connector. Use a pair of tweezers to gently remove the ribbon cable. Next remove the small metal clips around the headphone jack. Remove the motherboard from the ipod. Turn the motherboard over and release the jaw clip. Once released, we can now remove the screen from the motherboard by gently pulling it away.
