IPod Video 30 G display problem

I have a strange rainbow/irredescent blackish discoloration on my display. It has a v-shaped line through it, almost like it is cracked. When I move the iPod around, to look at it at a different angle, the discoloration also moves. It also comes and goes. HELP! Thanks!

Sounds like you need a new screen, go to an apple shop and if it is still under warranty you may get it fixed for free. It sounds like it might be cracked. call Apple about this and get their advice, if it is more than two years old without warranty, I would get a new one

    If it broke from normal use, maybe carrying it in your pocket with pressure, then it should be covered under warranty if the warranty is still valid, otherwise if you broke it on your own, then it won't be covered most likely but you can still try if you have the warranty

    let me know how this works out for you

So i turned my ipod on this morning and about a third of the screen has these lines of color going down it, there is a dent at the very top of the screen and a crack going across part of the screen, it...

What happened is the LCD has cracked. Normally the molecules in an LCD are lined up parallel to each other. When an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) breaks the liquid between the two sheets of display glass spread causing the molecules to loose that parallel orientation. That's where you get the colorful display. You can press on an LCD and cause this to happen without any damage (though I wouldn't recommend it to often).

Second explanation.
Rainbow bright has a thing for you and she left you a "Rainbow Message" on your Ipod. She just hit it a bit too hard with the "Rainbow Wand" ":)......

As long as you don't care what it looks like then don't worry about it. In ten or twelve years when you spend all the money you saved by not buying the next greatest gadget to come out on a ski vacation in Whistler/Backcomb. You can call all your friends and ask them "HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW"?
Before you buy a new one just remember to look around on-line for used or replacement parts for yours. They are out there and with a little bit of effort you can change out your screen.

I have an Ipod 6 gig mini that has parts to three different mini's in it. (Hey I'm a little hard on my gear. Plus working on a solid plate steel floor doesn't help.)

Hope this helps.

Can I view photos on my iPod photo/"Color"? nano?

Depending on the model, to view photos on your iPod photo/"Color", you either need to import photographs using Apple's iPod Camera Connector, or transfer images from your computer through iTunes 4.7 or higher to the iPod. For the current iPod U2 Special Edition "Color", iPod "Color" (20.0 GB), the version of the iPod photo (60 GB) introduced on February 23, 2005 and renamed iPod "Color" (60 GB) on June 28, 2005, as well as the discontinued iPod photo (30 GB), the simplest way to transfer photos from many digital cameras to your iPod is to purchase and use Apple's iPod Camera Connector (US$29). This device simply allows you to directly connect a digital camera to the camera connector and in turn connect the camera connector to the iPod "dock" port. Photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector are immediately viewable, with the exception of RAW format images and video clips. However, photos imported using the iPod Camera Connector cannot be immediately viewed as a slideshow with transitions. On versions of the iPod photo (40 GB, 60 GB) released prior to February 23, 2005, photos transferred directly from a digital camera using an iPod-compatible media reader are not immediately viewable, but photos transferred through iTunes 4.7 or higher, which converts photos into a "thumbnail" format, can be viewed on the iPod photo itself or displayed using the iPod photo connected to a TV or projector. The iPod nano, introduced September 7, 2005, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but as it lacks video out, it cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera. For information regarding the iPod nano and accessory compatibility, please refer to Apple Support

Nano and iPod "Color"

Upon first glance it would be safe to assume that the iPod nano is a "micro" version of the iPod "Color" models, and in a few ways this is a safe statement. Both systems use the "Clickwheel" (which places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel), have color displays, have software that uses color for all interface elements and applications, use the "Myriad" font, and are capable of displaying photographs in addition to playing music and transporting files. At 3.5 inches tall, 1.6 inches wide, and 0.27 inches thick the iPod nano is both physically smaller, compared to 4.1 inches tall, 2.4 inches wide, and 0.75 inches thick for the iPod "Color" models, and holds less data on 2.0 GB or 4.0 GB of Flash Memory, compared to 20 GB, 30 GB, 40 GB, or 60 GB hard drives for the iPod "Color" models. However, there are also some important differences between the iPod nano and iPod "Color" models as well. Unlike the iPod "Color" models, the iPod nano lacks video out, and as a result, can display photographs on the internal display "loaded" from a computer, but cannot display photographs on a television or projector. The iPod nano also does not support the iPod Camera Connector or third-party solutions, so photos cannot be transferred from a camera either. However, in addition to the calendar, contacts, and notes software from previous models, the iPod nano includes additional software functionality, such as a "Screen Lock" security feature, a stopwatch, and a "world clock".
