Have you tried resetting it? Press and hold the setting and menu buttons at the same time for about 6 seconds.

--please help. i pod 4gb silver has white screen. does not turn off i hear 2 beeps. it stays on with white screen. What do I do?


Hi leahschecter

***White Screen of Death***
This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod.
Try these steps.
Reset the iPod:
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
3.You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
Put iPod into Disk Mode:
Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following
the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that
is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot
anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
3.Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode.
If at this point you still have the white screen,
restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory
settings).
Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done.
After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

My ipod classic 120gb is in sync with my apple mac however it isnt recognised in my car or by my playstation 3. I have also noticed a thin white horizontal line across the display near to the top


the white line is dead pixels its what happens when a screen gets old.
iPod only connects to computer devices because you need special software to read the songs sorry

I pod touch help


You unplugged the thing before it was done.  Hold the power button at the top and home button at the bottom for 10 seconds, then let go of the top power button while still holding onto the home button for 10 more seconds.  This will reset the thing.  Then just hook the ipod back into your computer and try again my friend.
