Open Question

I washed my iPod nano. After a week in rice, it takes a charge and plays music, but the screen is a white light. When the screen dims I can faintly see the information on it. Can I restore the screen?

The screen is having a poor connection to the main board or it's broken.

Hi,
Bad news. Your screen is bad and needs replaced. Good news there are a number of companies that will fix that beside Apple. Bad news. It will cost about $60 unless you can do it yourself. Hope that helps.

That means that the inverter board for the LCD has gone out or there is a bad connection internally and it is not getting the signal to display the info. Your best bet is to see how much Apple wants to fix it. If it is too much I would say time for a new one. Fry's Electronics is selling the new 8GB Nano for somewhere between 139 and 159. That is their regular price.

I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

I washed my ipod chromatic accidently and theres water in the screen the ipod still plays and screen works is there a wy to get the water out


Get it in a baggie full of rice IMMEDIATELY and leave it there until the rice wicks away the moisture - it may take a few days and a change of the rice. If you have been saving those dessicant packs that come w/electronics and such - they work even better.

What do i do if the back light on my ipod nano doesnt work after it fell in the water


Turn the thing off.  Throw the thing in a zip lock bag and fill the bag up to the top with uncooked rice. Not Minute Rice or Uncle Bens.  I'm talking about the real thing asians eat every day.  Then seal the bag up and let the rice do its thing for a week by soaking up all traces of condensation and water.  Take the ipod out and see if that works.  If you got no luck, then take it to the Apple store and have them exchange the thing out for you if your under your 1 year warranty.  Don't mention anything about water or they will deny you immediately.  You just have to play ignorant or maybe dumb and dumber.

My ipod nano went throught the washer. the music works and my itunes recognizes it. but the screen doenst work at all and i cant see anything. music plays on headphones.. just no screen


You'll want to leave it off. This next part sounds weird but it does work sometimes. I learned it while working at RadioShack. Basically, you can just put it in a bag of rice, charging port facing down, and place this bag in the refrigerator for about 4-5 days. The rice absorbs water and it sounds a little crazy but it works about 70% of the time.

Hope this helps :)

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer


Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.

Try the Five R's suggested by your user's manual - you can get the manual from Apple's website if you have lost it:
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

Go throught this page

Your ipod might need to be repaired, the apple service assistant is on the bottom.

Might be a loose connection or other failing component I don't think there is no quick fix for this.

If the problem is solved dont forget to rate as fixya otherwise there is no need to rate it. As there is noting else we could do about it.

Greetings,
There is no way to update your old Nano to play video. There is no video processing chip, and the screen is not of a high enough resolution. My second generation ipod with a black and white screen also shows the option for music videos, its just due to the iTunes software.
Take Care
