I replaced my display on my 30 gig video, and I put it back together just as carefully as I took it apart, and now it doesn't do anything at all. Please help, I have too much invested in this thing just to junk it

i would suggest reversing the steps you took and look for anything you missed or improperly placed components because you said it kept turning on so something got pressed together improperly and is giving you the negative results your having im sure you will figure it out
I had the same problem and attempted what banjodoug suggested above. It did not help. I had a faint display even before I re-inserted it into my watch frame. I surmised it wasn't the battery position.
I then took apart the damn thing and put it back together several times, each time rushing to push the setting/center button only to derive the same problem over and over.
I then took it apart one more time and pinched in all of the sides of the metal frame that holds it all together, thinking that I had a bad ground. After I did that, I reassembed it and waited. The display came on with the test display and then eventually went to the standard display on its own and all was good to go.
I suspect the issue was solved by correcting an improper ground and a proper initialization process - both solved by the steps I took above.
If you've been trying to turn it on, then it's unlikely to work again. If anything like that happens again, "DON'T TURN IT ON". Take the item apart carefully keeping the screws together and leave the parts spread out in a warm dry place like an airing cupboard for about a week. Then put it back together and cross your fingers.

sounds like you need a new hard drive, which has a little read-write disk in it that is getting finicky... just to get more use out of it lay it on side or other positions and hear if works ok...if so its diffently Hard drive.
you know the sandisks are 2 gigs no moving parts why doesnt somebody put 20 together making 40 gigs and replace the failing Ipods!!??? just pure electronics and no moving parts and much smaller...not like a hard drive. I thought of this over 30 years ago looking at the first plug in video game.
