How to use iPod Diagnostics

How can you troubleshoot what is wrong with a broken iPod other than just swap out the parts that you guess are broken based on symptoms? Can you use the diagnostics menu to pinpoint a say bad hard drive or bad hard drive and motherboard or bad clickwheel etc. Does apple have a machine which does the diagnostics? Thanks for any info

Well, provided it's not an iPod Touch, there are diagnostics built-in. To get into them, you need to reboot the iPod (Menu + Select), then hit previous + select. Through running the diagnostics, it should be able to tell what's wrong.

"Well it's true there's built in diagnostics, but unless you really know what you're looking at, it can be kind of tricky.

Try this to test your hard drive:

HDD test"
