    So what happened was my Ipod was in my bag and got wet from a water bottle this summer. So I turned it off and let it dry in the sun for a bit. then when I turned it on it was working fine but the screen is really dark but you can see icons and apps functioning in a bright light :eek:

    After doing some research it's to do with the digtaliser ( :confused: ), so then I found the product (up above :rolleyes: ) which can replace it saving me $$$ xD .

    Is there any other possible problem of which the product above would not fix?

    Thanks in advance :)

    The digitiser only registers input from your fingers, it's not related to the display. It sounds like the LCD backlight is gone, I doubt you can replace just the backlight so have a look for an LCD assembly.

    Even if that would fix your fault, you'd have to be careful. There are plenty of small cables that if you accidentally loosen or detach/cut, your iPod will be completely unusable.
