This video will help you repair your iPod classic first to fourth or fifth generation that has been damaged. Overall goal is to remove the broken, smashed, destroyed screen by removing the broken screen from the main board and replacing it with another screen. You start first by removing the screen which is connected by a short ribbon cable. To detach the ribbon cable from the main board, you have to lift up the clip away by pushing your fingernail into the pin hole. This will push the black clip up exposing lots of pins and you can just pop it out. Then all you have to do is slide the new screen in.
