Ipod Classic 80 GB problem. screen is blank. PSP warranty

Recently my ipod screen went blank and i am not able to navigate through my ipod. I'm not sure what happened, it was working the day before and the next day the screen is blank. The Ipod was purchased in Feb. 2008, and came with a 3 year warranty PSP plan. Anyways, i went to a local near Best Buy to have the Geek Squad take a look at the ipod. They said they couldnt fix the problem. I asked if they could replace the Ipod with a new one and they said, "no ,my warranty doesn't cover it". Can anyone help me out? Im looking at the service plan online and it does state that Best Buy would replace it with a product of equal value, best buy gift card of equal value, or add the value back to your credit card.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
if nothing happens post me a msg , i'll try further steps to help u

Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya!

This means that the battery had shorted out and its already bad. You need to replace the battery. You can buy replacement battery for your ipod from ebay. its around $10-$15.

Have a great day.

How do you open an ipod classic?


Open the iPod classic and clean the logic board. If that doesn't help, the board needs replacement (it is available on ebay. ) Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod classic. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.
