well i own an ipod 5G and it seems to have developed a hairline crack on the LCD screen. this isn't s scratch on the outside casing but a small one on the screen inside.

Is there any fix for this?
is it covered by the 1 year warranty?

you can ebay a replacement screen and change it yourself. or if your lucky and there arent any major scratches or dents to the case you might get an AS genius and they'll swap yours out for a rebuilt unit if it's still under the 1yr warrantee. My suggestion is go to your local AS a few times and get real friendly with someone that works there.

right ok. its only a very small crack. concerned about this, thinking it may give way to a more serious problem.

only problem with the apple store is that the nearest one is London which is the next country over about 900 miles away. wondering maybe if i should try and get a cheap applecare on ebay or somewhere and then get it sent back that way.

thats really why i had to get applecare for my mac mini distance from apple stores and authorised resellers.
