Screen not working on ipod Need Help

Ive had a black ipod video, 60 GB and first generation for about a year and its been working fine, until today when i turned it on and the screen wasnt working. The Backlight still works but it just shows a blank white screen. I can still play music but cant see the menu. Ive tried rebooting the ipod several times by holding menu and the center button when it reboots, it shows a bunck of grainy lines going vertical and horizontal. And after i leave the ipod off for a while w/out rebooting the screen works fine and i can see the menu so i dont think the screens broken. any ideas on what i should do? Thanks a lot

This sounds like you have left the ipod in a hot car or in the sun too long, if so there is not a true fix for this problem. You can always take it in for a fix at an apple store.

What iPod to buy on Black Friday 2009 ? Buy guiding


From: http://www.convert-video-dvd.com/news/buy-ipod-discounts-for-black-friday.html
After about fortnight, the thanksgiving will be coming, followed closed by it is black Friday which is generally recognized as the start of the Christmas shopping season. This is the day when stores lure their shoppers to come even during very early hours of the morning so they can grab their much-awaited gadgets ahead of everybody. Apple also will Drop MacBook, iPod, iPhone Prices for Black Friday. So, if you want to buy a new iPod for yourself, your wife or children, just prepare yourself for shooting the favorite one.

This article will help you determine the model iPod you have. Basically, before you buying a new iPod ensure your Mac or Windows OS is compatible. Next, I will show you Apple iPod’s icon, Model, Year-month introduced, Navigation control, capacity etc. at a round. Hope that you guys could own the best iPod by contrast.

Before we get to the funny stuff, I want to share an applied conversion tool for iPod users – Daniusoft DVD to iPod converter which I stumble across. I have my eyes on two of its features:
1. Convert / Copy any DVD movies(including commercial DVDs) to iPod with excellent quality;
2. Provides many editing functions such as video cropping, movie trimming, and video effect adjustment (including resolution, bit rate, frame rate, brightness, saturation, and sound channel, etc.)

IPod Nano 4 GB -- what gen?


Hello,
If you have the Nano with the smaller screen measuring 1" x 1.25" and got it 3 years ago, you most likely have the 2nd generation. Apple doesn't really have cases on their site for the older nano. I have the same one and purchased my case at Target. They have a good selection of 3rd party (non-Apple branded) cases. You can also check an Apple store if you have one close by.
Hope this was helpful.
Have a great day

Jensen vm9412 and ipod classic


The newer generation iPods don't always work with the iPod connection kits in a lot of the car stereos. Some of the problem is due to the fact that the new generation iPods have been changed and the stereos were manufactured before the players were released so they are not compatible.
I bought my girlfriend a Pioneer car stereo with an iPod control cable, and it works fine with her Nano (not the new generation Nano) and it works with my iPod Photo 60 GB but it does not work with my iPhone 2G and I read that it is not compatible with the new Nanos or the Classics. Check with Jensen to see if the model you have is compatible with the Classic and see if there is a solution to the issue. It may not be compatible with the new video portion of the Classic firmware.

Cheers
