Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
3 year old video iPod. Everything seems to work, but the display. It lights up, but only shows a blank screen with horizontal lines. I have already reset it, but still the same. Thanks for your help.
A few things to try... Get another ipod and back up (using the menu button) to the first menu list you can,( should show the Music, Movies, ect list) and then do the same to your broken ipod. Follow the good ipod with the broken ipod and open a song. (just to clarify, you are using the good ipod to know what to press in the broken ipod because you can't see the screen). Now use your headphones to see if it is playing. If it works, your LCD is dead or depixelated. A screen replacement is necessary. You can find one on eBay for around $25 or someone to do it for you possibly on Craigslist.
If this doesn't work and it doesn't sync right to your computer then *********** board may be the culprite. Unfortunately this is the second most expensive part to replace. If you don't want to deal with it sell it on eBay/craigslist and put the money towards a new one.
