    I have the same problem with my iPod Nano 2nd gen. When I turn it on, the display lights and music plays, but no information appears on the screen. When I reset it, it works fine for about five minutes, but then goes blank again. I also tried toggleing the hold switch, but that doesn't help.

    Hey there John and Sonny

    Have you tried an update to iTunes8 then install the latest version of software for your iPods. Do a restore on your iPod from iTunes. Try the 5 R's - Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore.

    All the best

I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

Resync it to iTunes. You may need to reset it to defaults and then resync it, but resync usually works.

That means that the inverter board for the LCD has gone out or there is a bad connection internally and it is not getting the signal to display the info. Your best bet is to see how much Apple wants to fix it. If it is too much I would say time for a new one. Fry's Electronics is selling the new 8GB Nano for somewhere between 139 and 159. That is their regular price.
