Is this the part I need?

-Fix sound in one ear of iPod Video 5th Generation 30gb
-Can fix bad hold switch on iPod Video 5th Gen 30gb
-Can fix no sound (more likely a logic board issue)
-Can fix distorted sound of iPod Video 5th Gen 30gb

This headphone jack and hold switch for the iPod Video 5th Generation 30gb is mainly used to repair an iPod with sound from only one side or a jack that outputs distorted or static sound. If the headphone jack is loose or feels worn, replacing this part will help.

In rare circumstances, replacing the headphone jack can fix issues related to no sound at all, but it's more likely an issue with the logic boards sound chip and requires replacing the motherboard. This part can also fix an intermittent or non-working hold switch.

NOTE: The headphone jack for the 60gb and 80gb iPod Video models is different. These models use a thicker dual-platter hard drive. Therefore the backplate is thicker and the headphone jack and hold switch assembly is flat instead of beveled like the 30gb jack.

'Nicely paced and pointed out all of the pitfalls. The zooming in at critical points was much appreciated. The hardest part was those little screws. The magnetized screwdrivers did the trick though. Great job!'

'Arrived promptly, fit well, works well. However, when it arrived one of the posts that receives the screw on the Hold Switch side was broken off. I used it anyway since piece is still solid being held against a nub on the case and the battery. But being broken can't have 5 stars....'
