Remove Laser Engraving from iPod

Recommended Posts

I am buying a used ipod. The person I am buying it from had it engraved. Can I use something like brasso to remove the text from the back of the iPod?

A case covers it...but we don't know any way to remove it unless you can find a way to fill it with same metal(s) that the back is made of.

maybe there are some dead iPods that you can purchase off of eBay and take the back off of one of those for your new iPod.

Try a Dremel tool and the wire brush attachment (at your own risk, of course). I buffed-out some nasty scratches from an iron I once dropped using this method....

scotchbrite pad(for metal)+polish+elbow grease

 

no dremmel. it spins too fast and will generate too much heat. heat doesn't mix well with solid state components.

Some people have bad tatoos covered with new designs. Go to an engraver and have some big beautiful design engraved to cover those letters....
