But often the White Screen of Death means there is a problem in the communication between the main board and the LCD.
If your ipod is still under warranty take it to an Apple Store immediately and get it replaced. Tell them that under the Sale of Goods
Act you would like a refund or replacement for the iPod as it is clearly not of
merchantable quality. If they insist that you make an appointment,
refuse and state that you would like a full refund now under the sale
of goods act and a refusal by them to give you a refund is in breach of
the act. If they still refuse tell them that you will be reporting the
matter to trading standards.
If the item is out of warranty then find a cheap ipod repair specialist who may find it to be something very simple. If it's the main board on a 1st gen itouch, thats gonna be expensive. The main board on a 2nd gen or LCD on either are not so expensive.
That's about as much assstance as you will be able to get online I'm afraid.

A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.
What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem. b>
If the iPod will not turn off, try to reset it. Press and hold the
Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten
seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the
battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully
Try to restore the general settings of the ipod by going to General Settings>Reset>Reset All Settings. On The iPod. If This Doesnt Work I Would Take It Back To The Apple Store And Consult One Of The Technicians
