I have four suggestions for you on your issue. It is only necessary to do all of the steps is the preceding step does not resolve the issue.
The first is to go into your settings of the ipod and make sure the backlight is not turned off. If it is simply set it to a preference of your satisfaction and call it good.
second, reset the ipod. Below are the instructions just incase your not familiar with how to do it....

Last Modified: January 28, 2009 Article: HT1320 Old Article: 61705 Summary Learn how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.

Important: If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, it may be because iPod is paused or the Hold switch is in the locked position. If so, a lock symbol appears on the screen. Slide the Hold switch to the unlocked position and check the screen.
If the iPod is connected to a computer and displays any of the following messages you should eject the iPod from within iTunes instead of resetting it:
Connected. Eject before disconnecting Sync in Progress. Please wait... Do not disconnect If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, the steps to reset it vary by model. You can easily tell which iPod model you have if you're not sure.

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are 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.
Third I would restore the ipod using itunes. As before, I have provided the instructions below....
How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models). Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models). During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
Fourth, I would recommend putting the ipod into a bowl of DRY rice overnight to help pull any remaining moisture from it.
If after all four trouble shooting steps, you still do not have a back light; I would look into cheep repair service dealers.
I hope this was helpful to your issue. CHEERS :)

Ipod doesnt work


I think I know just the problem. The connection cord that came with the wall outlet charger can only be used for charging. You have to have the original apple cord in order for the computer to recognize it.


I had the same problem.

The black light in my ipod doesn't work after it got wet?


ok so thats what exactly what happened to me same i pod ... everything except for the circles what u need to do is bring it to the apple store and tell them what happened and the light might have eather burned out, the water got into it and shorted out, or it got disconnected when it was bouncing arround in the washer and/or dryer. so they should be able to fix it and get out the spots from cleaning it when they take it appart. I Hope this helped!

Backlight doesnt light


you probably need to replace the LCD screen. But there is one method that worked for me. I blew into the bottom hard and put it in sleep mode for about 5 minutes. When I turned it on again i went to settings and put the brightness all the way up and it worked

Light went out after 1 month.


We still cant get the cover off but as the fridge is only 1 month old I dont feel I should pay anything. In any case I'm not sure whether your sign means pounds, euros or dollars?
We are getting our son-in-law to come round next week and use brute force. We certainly shant buy any Whirlpool products again!

My apple ipod isnt working


Hold down on the center button while holding down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear and this will reboot your Ipod.

Make sure the lock isn't on when you do it.
