Question about Apple iPod nano
Screen lights up white but nothing else can be seen. I have rebooted and restored. help
This is problem a hardware, rather than software issue (e.g. physical
damage) so its not something that can be fixed with a iPod 'restore'.
you have some choices at this point:
1) try and fix it yourself. this can be difficult but alot cheaper (if your good with directions, pick this)
go to ifixit.com
they have both the parts for the repair, as well as the instructions on how to do the repair itself.
2) send it off to apple to fix
this will be very expensive and slow, i don't recommend this.
3) sell it, and buy a new iPod.

try to put the ipod into disk mode, while connected to PC, perform first hard reset by holding select and menu buttons until it restarts, when quickly change to pressing select and play buttons, then it must go into disk mode, will sync with PC and must show in iTunes, perform restore function to reformat the memory

Did you try charging it with the USB cord or do you have an adapter that plugs into the wall? If you tried with the USB cord, how long did you let it charge?
There are a variety of things that could be wrong. If the Ipod sat for a long time the battery could be completely discharged. I've not had this problem on the Nano, but on an old Ipod Mini my daugher has I've noticed that sometimes I need to plug it in with a wall adapter to get the battery charged enough to start up quickly.
Forgive me for asking this next question...lots of times I ask these basic question and people get mad, but the key lock is off, right? On my Nano there's a small slider switch on the top. In one position the controls are all locked. Please verify that you've got it set to the right position. Mine is locked when I can see the red dot.
Assuming the battery is not totally shot and the key lock is off, it's also possible that it's just "locked up". To reset the Nano press and hold both Menu and Select (center button) for about 5 or 10 seconds. If the Ipod is alive this will reset it.
From your post, I'm not sure if you mean the Ipod was sitting for a long time without being used. If that's the case and it used to work, and it has not gotten wet or anything, then the most likely problem is a bad battery. There are services on the web you can find who will replace the battery for a fee. If, on the other hand, it just suddenly stopped working and the reset does not help you may have a more serious problem. Unfortunately there's no way to tell.
Now for the editorial section. I don't get paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I lke to help when I can. The reason lots of people won't respond to questions like yours is because there's a real chance that your Ipod battery is dead or the unit is just plain broken. So they offer some suggestions which, obviously, won't work and then they get a bad rating. Even if my suggestions don't fix you problem I hope you'll find them useful in deciding if the Ipod is just plain dead. If you have more questions please ask. Thanks and good luck.

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides
back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the
left, here's how you reset:
You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
