Ipod screen is half white and the other half works

I don't understand why my screen is half white and the other half works. I've tried resetting it, but the screen still looks the same. I haven't dropped it or anything. One day when I turned it on the screen somehow appeared like this. It's been like that ever since. What do I do, do I have to buy another Ipod or is there some way of fixing that screen? Thanks!

    the screen is divided 50/50 - top half is white the bottom half is fully active showing it's 50% of the image/menu.



    Have tried reboot but no joy. Will try software update then full restore.

Ipod froze


A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.

What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem.

Ipod has locked up with a blank grey screen


how old is the battery it might need to be replaced

Charge the iPod


If your iPod touch suddenly goes blank while you are using it, the culprit could be a low battery.

Prior to the screen blanking you may see a low battery indicator.

If the screen is completely blank, try plugging the iPod touch into a power source and letting it fully charge before attempting to use it again.


Restart the iPod


If you've got a white or gray screen, try to restart the iPod.

Sometimes a simple restart will solve the problem that initially caused the white or gray screen, and the iPod will work as expected once you have turned it off and on.


Reset the iPod
Resetting the iPod Touch goes a step further than just restarting, and it is a good option if you've charged the iPod and restarted and you're still seeing a blank, white or gray screen. Press on the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds before releasing the buttons. At this point, you should see the logo or a battery icon, if the phone needs to be charged.


Restore the iPod


If nothing else has worked to remedy the malfunctioning screen on your iPod touch, try restoring the device. Connect it to your computer and open iTunes, then click on "Restore" which is found under "Summary." Be sure to back up your files when prompted, because the restore will change all of the settings on your device back to the factory default.


If even this does not work, you almost certainly have a hardware issue, and will have to take the device to an Apple store for examination and possible replacement.


hope this helps

Ipod touch half white screen


This is actually really easy to do.

This called a hard reboot.


All you have to do is hold the home button and the power button down at the same time for 30 to 40 seconds or until you get a Apple sign on your screen.

This will reboot your ipod.


If this does not work there is one other thing you can try to do.

Hook your ipod touch up to your computer that you use itunes on.


Itunes will detect a problem with your ipod.

You can try a restore of your ipod from your computer.


If this does not work its time to return or send your ipod back to apple so they can repair it.


hope this helps

I have a ipod nano and the screen has just gone white and it wont let me do nothing on it what could b wrong?


Hi silk 33...

White Screen of Death
This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod.
Try these steps.
Reset the iPod:
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
3.You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
Put iPod into Disk Mode:
Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following
the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that
is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot
anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
3.Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode.
If at this point you still have the white screen,
restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory
settings).
Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done.
After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

HELP! A half to a third of my iPod touch screen went white. Fix?


hi there, it sounds like the screen has dead pixels to me. If it is under warranty, they will be happy to fix it for you. If not, then I recommend getting a new iPod touch.

My 1st gen ipod has a blank screen


If your ipod has a white screen reset your ipod. You can do this by pressing and holding the menu button and the center button in your ipod. Keep pressing both until the apple logo appears this should reset your ipod. If it does not work try again. This worked for mine good luck :)

White screen on nano ipod


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.
