Ok youre probably going to be pissed that you spent the money on the screen, because all you have to do is go to settings, tap general, then tap reset settings. Thats it.

SOURCE: My 1st gen ipod touch backlight doesn't turn on. I

i don't know if this will work for you. I had the same problem with mine and i read somewhere that u need to either blow really hard in the bottom where you connect the sync cable or use a can of compressed air and it will clear dust off the place where the brightness is hooked up to the motherboard. After blowing put iPod in sleep mode for about 5 minutes and then turn back on. If there is no light then go to settings>backlight and then make it go all the way up. Might Work

SOURCE: Ipod Nano 4th gen LCD backlight not working

Its definitely the logic board (motherboard) that has gone bad. Its not the actual screen nor LCD. Its the logic board. You could replace the screen with a new onje and the backlight still will not work. Nano's are known for this but of course apple won't admit to putting out a piece of **** logic board in all of the nano's or they would have to recall 10 million of them! So, they just play stupid and say your nano is out of warranty but we'll give you a 10% trade in discount. What a joke! I know this because i used to work for Apple ;-) They screw customers left and right to keep their profits up.

Backlight not working


Try to re-install the screen assembly (touch 4). If that don't work the screen may have been damaged when installing it. Our shop does these all the time. See link to buy the install service.

If this is another iPod touch gen (older). Make sure the LCD connector didn't pop off.

2nd gen ipod shuffle non-responsive


Step 1:
Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive. Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working. All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated. An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated. A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode. Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button. Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds. Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen. Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod. Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it. Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons. Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen. Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it. Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.

The slide bar will not slide to unlock on my ipod touch 2nd generation. I've tried restarting. It holds a charge and I can play it on my docking station. I can't use it by itself.


I had the same problem with my iPod touch 3rd Generation, the slide bar will not slide to unlock. I could however use the slide to power off at the top of the screen. I tried everything from rebooting it to a full restore and nothing worked. I finally took the Touch Screen Glass Digitizer off and the ribbon cable that connects to the board had come loose. I pluged it back in and everything worked again.

Ipod touch (2nd Gen) with water damage


The touch screen is not physically attached to the screen, if water was anywhere near the bottom of the ipod it may have triggered the water damage unit inside the bottom. Water also may have leaked into the unit frying the circuits. You'll have to visit an Apple store or Apple.com/support for repair.

IPod Touch got wet and the battery won't charge


Sorry, that will not help. When I look at water damaged iPod, 99% of the time something inside has been shorted out and has to be replaced to fix it (that is if the other parts are still working okay). From what you are describing about it not having power on its own, it sounds like the logic board inside was fried. This part can be replaced, but it would be about the same price to fix as it would be to buy a new 8GB 2nd Gen.
