    Sounds like the white screen of death.

    Try resetting your iPod. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons till Apple logo appears, about 10 seconds. You may need to do this several times.

    Sorry, I don't think your problem's fixable. This happened to mine a few months ago. It never recovered, however I found that it was only the screen that was the problem, and that actually I could still play music. Try pressing the menu button about four times, then scrolling down with the click wheel a lot (to make sure the selection is at the bottom of the menu) and pressing the center button. See if you can hear anything, adjust the volume by scrolling clockwise to see if that helps. If not, press the play/pause button. If you still hear nothing, it's likely that your iPod has broken (i.e. it's not just the screen). In this case, your best bet is to take it to Apple and hope that your warranty is still valid. If not, I'm afraid you've had it.

    The Apple iPod's White Screen of Death
    I get a white/blank screen on my iPod
    The software is probably hung up and needs to be restarted.


    This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod. Try these steps.

    Reset the iPod:

    1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
    2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
    3. You may need to repeat the reset several times.

    If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.


    Put iPod into Disk Mode:

    Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.

    1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
    2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
    3. Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.


    For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).

    Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

    I suggest you try to reset the iPod to factory settings and reinstall it.

    If you can play music on it still then your screen is broken. Nothing you can do to fix it. If your warranty is still valid, take it to Apple for a new one.

    Did the vendor that sold you the unit offer any help? I know that when I was looking at Zune's, I met a repair technician who worked on Ipods and stated that they rarely, if ever repaired them and just tossed most of them away. I questioned his title of "repair" technician.

    Are you claiming god fixed your ipod? You can't seriously be that deluded, can you?
