Re: lcd fault?

If you just bought it today, simply return it and tell them that it has a lot of dead pixels. Usually stuff like that is covered.

So i turned my ipod on this morning and about a third of the screen has these lines of color going down it, there is a dent at the very top of the screen and a crack going across part of the screen, it...

What happened is the LCD has cracked. Normally the molecules in an LCD are lined up parallel to each other. When an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) breaks the liquid between the two sheets of display glass spread causing the molecules to loose that parallel orientation. That's where you get the colorful display. You can press on an LCD and cause this to happen without any damage (though I wouldn't recommend it to often).

Second explanation.
Rainbow bright has a thing for you and she left you a "Rainbow Message" on your Ipod. She just hit it a bit too hard with the "Rainbow Wand" ":)......

As long as you don't care what it looks like then don't worry about it. In ten or twelve years when you spend all the money you saved by not buying the next greatest gadget to come out on a ski vacation in Whistler/Backcomb. You can call all your friends and ask them "HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW"?
Before you buy a new one just remember to look around on-line for used or replacement parts for yours. They are out there and with a little bit of effort you can change out your screen.

I have an Ipod 6 gig mini that has parts to three different mini's in it. (Hey I'm a little hard on my gear. Plus working on a solid plate steel floor doesn't help.)

Hope this helps.

I had a similar issue. I took it to a friend of mine who is good with computers hoping he might be able to fix it........and he did....apparently the HOLD button was slid to the right locking all functions...once he slid it to the left closest to the power button, it worked fine. Imagine my embarrassment...I hope this is all that is wrong with yours as well

White line on screen

Usually a white line straight across the screen indicates that the LCD screen has a bad row. There's not much you can do about it I'm afraid.

If you're mechanically capable, you can go to e-bay and pick up a non-working unit (for parts) and replace the screen on your working unit. I guess it depends on the cost of the unit. You might just be better off using it as is.
