    This is my first ipod and my first post in the forum = noob. I've been lurking around this forum ever since I ordered my ipod at end of Sept. I was super excited when I finally got it this Monday Oct 1st. I was lucky and got a week 38 and when I first got it I did all the tests on it and got pretty good results. Nice contrast and resolutions. Then the horror: it blanked out! The first time was when I first synched it.

    This is what happens: the screen turns all white with thin colored lines kinda just moving here and there. I tried pressing the sleep button to turn it off then on again and the white screen with colored lines is still there! I turned it off for a few minutes and it was back to normal. It was just the first time I used it! I did the 1.1.1 update and the screen was still fine (contrast/colors-wise) and I thought the screen problem will be gone... until today (day 3).

    I was on the train listening to music when it blanked out again. I pressed the sleeping button but it didn't turn off! After about a minute it turned off by itself then turned on by itself again but it was still the white screen with colored lines! Is there a way to fix this? I took my camera phone and recorded it on my phone what happened on the screen of the ipod. If I go to an apple store do you think they'll exchange it for me? I can't make the blank screen appear, it just appears randomly!

    edit: it doesn't have the apple logo, just all white with colored lines. The music continues playing even after it goes blank and none of the buttons work!

    Something similar to this happened to me but not while I was listening to music. Was after update and was while I was watching a video; everytime I got to a specific point/time on the video the screen just went white/grey with the apple logo and I couldn't press any buttons. Same happened with a few other videos I tried it with.

    Would like to know if this is a one off that can be easily fixed

    Interesting. Did you try using the iPod Restore utility?
