    I have read multiple solutions and wonder if taking my IPOD in for repair may be the best.

    1. Went through washer 3 weeks ago.

    2. Plugged into wall charger and then in to speakers, music will play nicely and can forward or reverse songs.

    3. It remains only on white screen even after trying hard reset.

    4. My ITUNES on computer will not recognize so I can do a full factory restor.

    Question now is - likely screen issue and is it worth replacing since I can buy new one for $145?

    Thank you,

    Kate

Buy a new one you will be much better off that way, the new one comes with warranty, if you replace parts on your old, out of warranty product and it brakes again, you end up paying more and more. Get a new one, comes with warranty your safe for atleast a year aslong as you don't put it in the washer again :)

Only suggestion under your present situation is to use as much as you wan't to unless you have surplus money for purchasing a new screen. To the most you can try is open up your Ipod and keep it in the sun for evaporation. If water is giving problem to the connectivity with the screen it will evaporate in sun alongwith carbon. Or else you will have to replace your screen.

IPod not working in my music dock


Hi Natalie
Sounds like you're having logic board troubles. You need to take it to an ipod repair specialist to take a look at it. Sorry to bring the bad news. Chances are it's not a simple repair and will need a new logic board and they're not cheap:

If it's still less than a year old take it back to an apple store asap for a free replacement.

All the best

My ipod nano 2nd gen's screen won't display anything..


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.

Frozen screen


you can try to run the batteries down or you can try to open it, disconnect the battery and connect it again, before closing it see if the unit was reseted.
