    i have a ipod nano 2nd gen

    i have been looking about on youtube and google and it seems like a lot of ppl get this ans guess what .. ive got it :eek:

    i have my serial number for the i pod and i have tried to get a ring back from apple but they say they only ring the u.s when i emailed the uk branch i have emailed apple and they have said they cant do anything because i have had it for to long

    i have tried to hold the menu button and do the thing with the lock thing at the top of the i pod but when i reset it the i pod turns of and comes back on but still a white screen

    i can listen to music and everything it works fine music wise just the white screen .. cant tell what im listening to


    was j.w if any can help ?? or give me advice

    p.s i have even emailed apple and asked them how much it would cost them to look at it and they said they wont ( bit silly )

    If you cannot restore, then your only choice to go with is a bad screen. And since Apple says they will not repair, sorry.

    i can click restore but the white screen doesn't go

    i have seen i pods ran over by a lorry and the screen still works ( youtube )


    how can the screen just go by siting on my desk ?
    if it has gone the apple has made a really rubbish i pod :D
    if there i pods break by them self

    Well, you could try to run the battery and see if that works.
