How to remove crumbs from under an ipod touch screen? Answered

I have an iPod touch 2g and I somehow have crumbs under my screen. I wonder why this happens and how to fix it. Another question is do I need a new digitizer or can i just take it out then put it back in?

Look for a video about how to replace the glass (also called a digitizer) on your ipod -- it's a very similar procedure, just instead of replacing the glass, you are only removing the lcd from the glass and then cleaning it with alcohol. Don't use anything like windex.

It's easier than it looks, but you have to be patient and very careful. If you wreck a cable inside the unit then it's very difficult to find replacements.
