    Swollen battery pressing up against the back of the LCD, pushing it into the display glass. Common issue with sealed iPod Nano 4th Gen's

    Does it mean that display is already damaged? Or if I release the pressure it will go back to normal?
    Is there a way to relieve it without unboxing?

    The problem cannot be fixed without replacing the battery, display may also be permanently deformed if it has been like this for a long time. Did you buy this iPod recently or have you had it since 2008/9?

    Learn how to crop your photos dude. Uploading 3mb pics is no bueno unless you want me to make a movie poster out of it.

    That's not called cropping.

    Sorry, but the battery inside which is bloated, hence pushing and protruding the LCD screen against the screen.
