    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.

I tried holding home and lock for ten seconds then just home for another ten, and in the middle of my ten seconds of home and power, the screen went black and still is. Cant turn it on or anything.

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.

    If you're tech savy or have a tech savy friend you can try to fix it your self : iPod Touch Repair Guide. If you just want to let a service do for you and you don't have any warranties with apple you can go to : iPod Repair

My ipod is frozen with a white screen, I cannot turn it off and it is not responding to anything. Can anyone please help

Welcome to Fixya

This problem is called the white screen of death. To solve this, you should press the Home button and the Power button together for about 30 - 40 seconds. This process is called hard reboot. You can also try to restore the factory settings by plugging the device to you computer and restore it using itunes.

Thank you

Hi there my daugters ipod touch 8gb screen gone white and does not respond when you press the screen

You may need to reset. Important: Only reset your iPhone or iPod touch if it is no longer responding. To reset, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

White screen !!

Completely white? No icons or "sad" ipod symbol?

Static buildup will make the ipod screen pale white/grey. If it were a black screen, I'd say update and reformat but static kills the unit.
