It is natural to ipod the screen will be dark if has no power unless the LCD of your iPod is defected even it has a power its remain dark that’s the symptom of defected LCD screen. I hope your problem is a power failure only. Make sue your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the hold switch on and off. Then reset your iPod nano; Toggle the Hold switch on and off,(Slide it to Hold then it off again). Then press and Hold the Menu and Center (select0 buttons simultaneously until the apple logo appears ,about 6 to 10 seconds .You may need to repeat this step . If you having difficulty resetting your iPod set it on a flat surface .Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel,and not near the center. Then If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. Try your iPod nano with a different USB port on your computer, not a USB port on your keyboard or hub. iPod will stop charging if the computer, or portable computer, it's connected to enters standby, hibernation, or sleep mode. To charge your iPod, connect it directly to a computer's USB port and make sure standby, hibernation, or sleep mode is turned off. If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged in to a power source and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed the computer may go into either standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPod will not charge properly. If you have an Apple iPod USB power adapter you'll be able to charge your iPod without leaving your computer powered on. If all procedure above for power to on is not working then its better to replaced the battery with anew one so its works normal again.

Hope it may help you;
Regards;

Ipod 30 gb next gen.nothing but a black screen


Hi,
I would suspect either a bad screen, or a bad battery. Can you hear the hard drive turning? Put it next to your ear and see if you hear a whirling sound. If you can hear that, then your screen is gone and needs to be replaced.

Try plugging it into a wall charger. If it comes on then it is the battery. The computer often does not have enough power to make it light up if the battery is really bad. Hope that helps.

Dark mp3 screen


Check backlight settings in player settings. If everything looks good, it is a hardware issue that cannot be resolved without replacing the entire player.

Dark screen for my creative zen?


The previous poster is right; I do repairs on these all the time, and the most common problem is a cracked screen. The crack is on the back so you can't see it. The screen will need to be replaced.
