Question about Apple iPod 4th Generation MP3 Player
My iPod's backlight stopped working some time ago . . . is there any way I can fix this?
If you're comfortable with opening your iPod, you can replace the LCD (you can buy a replacement one on eBay) and the new one should work properly.

If you're out of warranty, somebody has to open the iPod and replace the screen. The part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

You can get Apple Care (pretty much insurance for your ipod). You can also exchange your ipod for a new one or send it to a specialist to get fixed.

Lcd has nothing to do with the backlight, theres a red wire that you need to tape to the lithium battery to make it work.

SOURCE: 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.
