Lights up but doesn't display anything but horizontal lines

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.

    I know this isn't the kind of solution you're looking for so I won't even label it as a solution but...


    if the horizontal lines are in a relatively disorderly pattern, your LCD screen is probably broken or one of the chips inside that controls it is fried. don't know what to tell you.


    when you press buttons, does it respond with any kind of sound through the headphones. does the messed-up image on the screen change?

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.

How do I fix horizontal lines on the viewer and pictures of my Olympus SP-560 UZ


If you have both, lines on the display, and on the pictures, I'm afraid something is wring with the sensor, or with the connections to the sensor. That is if you have the same lines on every picture.
If you only have horizontal lines, when taking pictures of bright lights in a dark area, it is just a phenomena of the camera. In almost all digital camera's this can happen.

you may have a faulty camera there,,,or the vcr tape may be faulty and has spred some of the tape on the recording head try running a cleaning tape through the vcr first to clean the heads,,then use a new tape (not the old tape!) to try that out,, if its cleans the head up throw away the old tape so you never put it back in this vcr

Making a buzzing sound, and displaying horizontal lines


Contact Sony and tell them the problem. As long has youve had the playstation3 for under one year and have not touched the warranty seal at the side of the playstation then you can have your old playstation3 replaced.

Cannot display anything at all,sounds it is working but, cannot dispaly boot screen and rest???


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Latitude D820. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor has no display, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.

Horizontal lines on my monitor


I have a similar problem with a 2 year old Samsung monitor. I have tried to make a screen dump of it, but the horizontal lines do not show up then. This I have read indicates that the problem is in the monitor and not the video card.
