IPOD NANO - Starts With White Screen, Stays With White Screen. Can't see Anything.

Hi. I received an IPOD Nano I purchased from EBAY yesterday. Ever since I have turned it on, all I have been able to see is a blank, white screen. I don't see an apple screen, selection screen or any screen except for this blank white screen. What should I do to fix my problem?

1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (set it to Hold, and then turn it off again).
2 Press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears. this resets the ipod

Sounds like you may need a ipod diagnostic test to test your screen.

My ipod has a blank white screen how do i fix it


if your ipod is within a year of purchase it's still under warranty. return it to apple and they will replace it.
or if it is within 30 days return it to the retailer and take your receipt and they may just give you a new one.
It sounds like the LCD went bad, it happens and apple is aware of these issues so try and get it replaced.
If you don't want to do the warranty thing, go onto ebay and buy a screen for it and do a search on youtube for a "take apart" video for your model.

Good luck

New Ipod Nano 4th Gen 16GB has went blank and will not turn on


HI there,

worst case scenario is that a circuit has broken inside. But your ipod will be under warrenty for a year from purchase.

Otherwise, leave the ipod to charge for a long time. Just leave it connected directly to the computer USB port despite not having any change in appearance. Also, don't connect it via a usb hub or through your keyboard. You will need to plug it into your computer directly.

You can also try entering DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

Then restore the ipod and update the firmware. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed. By checking through software update.


I hope this helps,

Nathan.

My ipod nano 2nd gen's screen won't display anything..


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.

Try the Five R's suggested by your user's manual - you can get the manual from Apple's website if you have lost it:
Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore
Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.
