2nd Gen iPod Nano Backlight :(

Hey, I am back with another problem...
So someone just gave me this iPod Nano Pink 4GB that works perfectly except for the backlight which will not go at all. Tried resetting settings, and the backlight timer. Is this thing borked? or can I fix it. Don't want to spend any money on it as it was free. It's good for just sticking it in a dock and playing music without the screen. THANKS!

yes, if ressetting and syncing, etc. didn't work, then it is borked.

Google Nano 2g and white screen; I have the same thing. iFixit or someone was selling replacement screens for about $30 last I checked; you would also need some specialized tools.

Ah, I just found out that the original owner gave it a spin through the washing machine. She was amazed it even worked.
Nothing to see here...
