    Yesterday i tried turning my touch on but nothing happened...it just sits on a black screen. When i plugged it into my car usb port, it still played music and i could switch songs using the stereo, but the screen still stayed black on the ipod. When i plug it into the computer itunes still recognizes it and i can edit my songs and what not, but the screen still stays black.

    It is jail-broken but i don't think that has anything to do with the screen problems.
    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Is the screen turned off or has a black type of color on it?

    It seems like a problem with the screen, not the software. Try and take it to the Apple Store and see what they say

    Will the fact that it's jailbroken be a problem?

    Can you sync your device to iTunes?

    Does iTunes recognize your device when you plug it in?

    If yes, just restore it and then it will be un-jailbroken. Just be sure to backup first. Right-click your device and select backup.

    Bet. The restore actually corrected the screen problem, whatever it was. It works fine now.
