    i just got the white screen and i have tried everything but it doesn't seem to work. Do I have to get a new one or a replacement? I really don't want to unless i have to.

Restore through iTunes 8 if you can...
If you have to do something more dramatic, try resetting it to factory shipping mode.
Hold the Home & Power buttons for 10 seconds, then release the Power button, but continue holding the Home button for another 10 seconds. This must be timed perfectly so use a clock.
If you'd like help, call me.

If hard resetting and restoring it doesn't work you have a broken LCD screen. There is an iPod touch repair website that shows you how to replace the screen yourself.

When i open the programme it looks ok but when i click on it the screen goes white and it stays like that until i click to close then it says not responding

Try letting the program run for a while if it dose not respond after about 2 to 3 mins then only close it.

There may be some software problem or maybe your explorer.exe is going to get corrupt.

Action replay not responding at all

how to reset the Action Replay DS OK we have finally done it!! YEAGH!. Here is the trick for those like my son and I that are trying to get the darn thing to reset. All you have to do is Hold down A&B first while the unit is off. Keep holding A&B buttons then be ready to press the Start & Select button just after you turn on the DS. Wait for the White screen to Appear after bootup, then press and hold the Start & Select buttons while still remaining to hold the A&B Buttons, before the words appear. Another words after health and saftey screen a white screen will appear that is when you add the start & select buttons along with the A&B Buttons. The white screen will stay on for 10 seconds. If it does not stay on the white screen foe about 10 Seconds, it did not work. Otherwise ours did not work until we jumpped the gun on the Liscense screen. Hope this helps someone. :)

Faulty game console

Maybe the ribbon cable was damaged. the ribbon cable is a flat wire thing used to connect the top screen and bottom screen. you can buy a ribbon cable on ebay for a cheap price.

if that wasn't the problem, maybe the bottom lcd screen is dead. you'll need to replace that.
