    Help Needed...with Ipod Touch

    i bought this: cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/…dll?ViewItem&item=270450915348&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT

    usb mains charger adapter for my ipod touch, i plugged it in it blew and now my ipod is completely dead. tried hard reset but nothing....can any one help please....

    It clearly says on the listing that this is compatible with the touch hence me buying it but its killed my ipod...

    No is the answer!

    I use one of these to charge my ipod touch and it works fine? :?

    any warranty left, try claiming through that

    technically yes but this is ebay. no rules apply

    ive bought numerous wall chargers for my ipod and none of worked. not surprised for the couple of quid theyve cost me

    so i guess my touch is dead now no way to repair it??

    It says the output voltage is
    Output: DC8V -12v,1000mA
    but USB should be 5v,
    email the seller first and if you get no joy open up a dispute with paypal,

    LOL...Wow....OP, you must have fried your IPOD Touch!!!! Hopefully the warranty will take care of that and like other reply states. File dispute with paypal on the above basis as it is a significantly not as described item.

    Tell the truth with Apple? you mad ? LOL.....nooooooooooooooo

    well, yes, you limit the truth that you tell them....you tell them your ipod has died....and that the screen isnt operating any more...do NOT tell them you purchased a usb plug from ebay.
