    I have not heard of that! Is that a common problem or have you just made it up?

    It sounds like you have the white screen or death. It might be a software issue, so try to DFU.

    If it's a hardware issue, you screwed.

    Recently had that with my iPod Touch. It died. Never recovered. Seriously.

    Could've been from previous water damage. It was working for months after the incident though. Related? Who knows.
