Try to reinstall then reset. If that does not work than more than likely the screen is bad.

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.

My ipod screen is white cant see anything

Try resetting the iPod, by holding down the menu and the center button down for 10 seconds.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the device through iTunes.

If this doesn't work, you likely have a bad LCD or Logic Board. Send it into Milliamp for iPod Repair.

Ipod nano glass install

  1. Work in a clean, dry, and dust free area

    iPod mini - remove the top white plastic plate and the screws and retaining bracket beneath it with computer safe plastic pry tool and screw driver. Then slide the metal casing off, while placing light pressure on the center of the click wheel to disengage it from the casing. Slide the entire insides out of the casing, completely expose the inside of the ipod.
    All other iPods, remove the upper half of the plastic cover using computer safe plastic pry tool to expose the inside of the ipod.
  2. Now that you have exposed the iPod's innards, you should see the LCD screen in it's bracket with a single cable connecting it to the mother board coming off one side. Unplug the old LCD screen and set it aside.
  3. Plug the new LCD screen in exactly where you unplugged the old screen and place the new screen carefully in its casing or frame.

    *Now you can carefully plug in the iPod cable to test your work. If it is not working uplug the USB cable and check all your connections again, making sure the wiring is not twisting or pinched. Once you have checked and corrected the problem, retest it. (If it is still not working the LCD screen might not be your problem.)
  4. iPod mini - Carefully slide the iPod inside it's metal casinng, taking care to put gentle pressure on the click wheel to guide it into place. Then replace the retaining bracket and screws and replace the white plastic cover. Now you're done! Enjoy an iPod brought back to life.

    All other iPods- simply align the top panel and snap it back into place, being careful not to pinch any cables - or your fingers!

    Now you're done, and you have breathed new life back into your iPod for many more hours of fun watching and listening. Enjoy!
Make sure you purchase the exact screen you need. They can often be purchased online fairly inexpensively. Search around for the best deal you can get for your money.
  • Plastic tools specially designed for working on iPods can also be found for a few cents to a few dollars easily online.
  • Always work in a clean, dry, dust-free area
  • Always observe electrical safety precautions when working on electrical or computerized devices.
  • Remember that if your item is under warranty, working on it yourself may void the warranty, so if you have a pretty new iPod check with apple first to see if they will fix it for you for free under warranty!

    SoundDock won't charge newer iPod versions

    Unfortunately there is no real fix for this. Apple changed the charging from USB to Firewire, so the old charging methods don't work anymore. I purchased an adapter somewhere on the internet that worked with some devices and not with others, but I can't remember where I got it from.
    You will either have to wait for apple to change it, or bose to find a work around, or get a new unit.

    White scrren on ipod classic but works on itunes

    Is your ipod still under warranty?
    If so make an appointment at your closest Apple Store and they will replace the iPod for you at no charge.
    If it is out of warranty, you may need to replace the LCD.
    If you have dropped the ipod the LCD could be damaged and not be cracked.
    Try restoring it in Itunes and see if that helps.
    If not Replace the LCD and you should be fine.

    If this helps please leave a vote on fixya

    I cant see the words nmy hp appe ipod screen!

    I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

    this seems like a hardware problem, most likely you have to send the ipod in for repairs.
