Re: ipod 5ht screen dont work.
You can try these steps
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time

I just had this problem as well, i tried everything, so i let it sit here for like a month, while deciding what to do with it. I just found a response today that said if you don't care about losing it try dropping it on the floor a few times, I'm not kidding you that it worked lol. After i dropped it twice I restarted it and the apple logo showed up and works fine now, anyways hope this helps, although i don't know that I'd recommend it for everything it did work for me.
put it in DFU mode while connected to the computer.
do this, hold the home and power buttons for 10 seconds and then
let go of the power but keep on holding the home for 10 secs. the
screen will be black and nothing will show up. go to itunes and click
on your ipod on the left. then click restore. this should work.
Try the Five R's suggested by your user's manual - you can get the manual from Apple's website if you have lost it: Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem
with your iPod nano. If one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to
specific problems. â Reset your iPod nano.
See “General Suggestions,” below. â Retry with a
different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes. â Restart your computer
and make sure you have the latest software updates installed. â Reinstall iPod and iTunes
software from the latest versions on the web. â Restore your iPod nano.
See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

Try This next time .... Not all, but many 5G iPod owners have had issues with the latest iPod
updates, I had this problem myself a day ago & was almost ready to
send it in for a replacement, some HAVE sent theirs in. Anyways, after
updating the iPod the iPod no longer works!! All you get is a blank white screen
(White Screen Of Death), 3 beeping tones and you hear the hard drive
click. Simply resetting the iPod will do nothing, but get you another
three beeps & a click. But to resolve this issue do the following,
this had worked for me as well as others...
1) Move the LOCK to the "ON" position.
2) Move it back to the "OFF" position.
3) Hold the "Centre" button then hold down the "MENU" button until you
hear the harddrive make the "click" noise.
4) As soon as you hear the drive "click" press and hold the "Centre"
button then press & hold the Play/Pause button, you should then see
the Apple Logo" like normal and it should then start up like with no
if you are having the problem of a blank white screen, dont freak out! hold down the menu and select button for about 15 seconds or until the appel logo appears.if this doesnt work try plugging in your ipod. if that doesnt work wiggle the lock and unlock button a couple of times. if all these soulutions dont work go to www.apple.com and call customer support
