You cannot simply replace the screen for two reasons:
1) You cannot order a screen, except by buying a broken player of your same model. Once you get this screen, you will need to unscrew your mp3 player base and take out the old screen and insert the new screen, carefully applying a minute amount of adhesive to keep it in place.
2) 95% of the time, the LCD controller is also damaged -not just the screen. Unless you are an expert circuit engineer, you will not be able to acheive this - actually you would probably find that it is more expensive than buying a new mp3 player (to the extent that it is even possible).

Sorry.

Apple ipod Changed the lcd screen now have a white screen


Either:-

1) You have not fitted the replacement screen properly

2) Something else has gone wrong - i.e. logic board

3) The screen is faulty.

Personally, I'd suggest removing and re-installing the screen.

Cost


Hey Christina90,

Depending on what has been damaged, it may not prove economical to seek repairs on your iPod Nano. Problems such as defective headphone jacks and broken scroll wheels are easily addressed through Apple, but more extensive problems such as broken LCD screens or other physical damages may be more expensive to repair than it is to purchase a replacement MP3 player.

If you're still curious about the repair costs, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple's support hotline for more information. Best Buy™ stores are not able to provide repairs on iPod Nanos at this time, and speaking with the manufacturer directly should provide you with the most detailed information regarding your repair options.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
