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?

You will need to replace the screen. This is a relatively cheap fix.
At this web site you can purchase the new screen and view a step by step guide (with pictures) on replacing every part in the iPod nano you have. :) Let me know if you have any issues with the resolution. Cheers
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.
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 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.
