My Ipod nano has a bright white screen, and once in awhile it will go perfectly normal and fully visible, then dim back out on its own. I have charged it, reset it, changed the backlight and brightness and...

you have water damage that ruined the screen. you can get it fixed at some places but its more expensive than getting a new ipod, i had the same thing happen to mine. i don't know how the water got in but it did the exact same thing to mine

My Memorex MMP9008's backlight is not showing up .The screen is basicly black.

I may have a solution for you. Turn on a lamp, and turn other lights off... Sunlight from a window will also work. Position the screen so there is no glare. Turn it on. Press down then play, and it should take you to settings. This should be bright enough to read without a backlight. Then go down to factory settings and hit OK. Hope this fixes your problem! =D

IPod Backlight Broken

I thought my ipod was broken but i did something to make it brighter:
Go to settings and scroll to brightness (i guess it should be right under backlight timer in the menu)
There you will need to scroll clockwise and you will see your screen get brighter.
Anyway I have a ipod video I'm not sure if it's the same as the other ipod series.

Just a blue screen.

if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.

Screen not working on ipod Need Help

this sounds like you have left the ipod in a hot car or in the sun too long, if so there is not a true fix for this problem. You can always take it in for a fix at an apple store.
