Alright. I have an 80 gig new classic that gave me the " white screen of death". Un-plug it from your computer. Its not broken. It will still play music on your computer as well as through your headphones. Keep trying to turn it off and on. At first, nothing will happen. Keep trying until it goes dark. turn the wheel and all your pixels should be restored. If not, keep it on until it goes dead, then plug it back into your computer. Mine got fixed after one try of the first solution I suggested. Good Luck.

This sounds like the "white screen of death" that some ipods suffer. Try plugging in your headphones and see if you can still hear the clicks when turning the clickwheel, aslo if you can get a song to play.

There are a number of different solutions that people have done to solve this.

One is to keep turning the ipod on and off until the battery wears down completely, then reconnect to your PC or wall A/C adapter.

Ipod wont turn on


Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch. Press any button to turn on iPod. Make sure the battery is charged iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod

Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via

USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.

If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information. Reset iPod
If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost. Let the iPod battery drain
In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:
Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it. Update iPod's software
If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod. b>

Why wont my ipod touch turn on i turned it off and it wont come o


Hold the power button and home button for 10 seconds to ensure the device is off. Let go.

Hold the home button down, plug in the ipod to the computer, after the screen changes to the itunes plug screen, let go of the home button.

The ipod will now be in recovery mode, and you can attempt to perform a restore within itunes.

If the restore fails, and the ipod screen stays black, this means the battery is dead and must be replaced.

I tried jail breaking ipod and it wont turn on


Okay. if your jailbreaking is not working than it is something to do with who or from where you bought your ipod or the jailbreak program. If you are wanting to jailbreak your ipod i reaccoment the program HiJackThis it worked on my old ipod touch. But A word of warning. after i jailbreaked by ipod i dropped it and the screen cracked. they would not fix my iPod for the single reason that by "Jail Breaking" your iPod you break you warrenty and Apple will no longer repair it.

iPod reset is usually center and menu held for 5 seconds. Doing this should put it back into a normal behavior state.

My ipod nano wont do anything


Did you try resetting the iPod? If the battery were dead then when you plugged it in, you'd still see something popping up on the screen. What's possible is that your screen got disconnected from the iPod logic board or otherwise got ruined. When you try turning the iPod on can you hear any noise inside? If you toggle the hold switch does it show the orange light? If you can't hear any noise and it doesn't show the orange light, your iPod's logic board probably died. You can get a new one off eBay and replace it if you're comfortable opening your iPod. Otherwise, you can sell the broken iPod on eBay for a decent amount.
