    The edge of the sync/charge port on my 30gb iPod video is bent and I
    can't hook it up to the charger any longer without damaging
    something. Since otherwise the iPod is perfectly OK, but Apple won't
    touch it, I wanted to replace the bent port. Does anyone know if I
    need to replace the whole circuit board assembly or if it is a stand
    alone part? It doesn't seem like a huge big deal, but any advice
    anyone has would be gratefully accepted.

    It doesn't seem like a huge big deal, but any advice
    Check out <http://sfbay.craigslist.org/search/ele?query=ipod broken> for an
    identical model with broken display. Or post your own ad for such. Buy for
    parts and exchange the entire PCB that has the connector.

    If I were you, I wouldn't want to un/solder that connector on the PCB...

    Good luck,
