Ipod White Screen

Postby TheLittleMozart » Sun Apr 01, 2012 9:49 am

So aye just randonly, few weeks back, my Ipod screen just went toally white and ever since then i can seem my screen on it. I can still navigate around my ipod and play music but I simply cant see the screen because its just all white.

Its a serious pain in the arse and I have no idea how to fix it. Ive tried a soft & hard reset and none fixed it and from what Ive read on the internet this is called 'the white screen of death' and is quite common.
Anything Ive tried so far has worked so any ideas how I might fix this issue?

Is your phone still within the one year warranty? If so get your phone company t send you a replacement. No need f-ing about trying to fix it.

I think Apple still offer a 1 year warranty. How long ago did you purchase it?

Gonna bother replacing it with a new one? I mean, most phones can act as MP3 players nowadays...

How are you hard resetting? Lock button and home button down for 10 seconds until Apple logo appears?

Have you tried putting it into DFU mode and then restoring?
