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

Toshiba satilite C6550 has rainbow lines on half my screen the other half is fine ?


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Colored lines appearing from bottom to top of the screen.


the LCD is a very complicating device for all CP. you may check it by disassemble it to it's LCD and connect the ribbon wire/flex of the LCD firmly... but this problem is best to replace it with a new LCD... very complicated device indeed

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.

Black line on display screen.what to do? how to remove it?


Hi. This is definitly a hardware issue. It's either the LCD panel or even the Logic Board that needs replacing. It's not as expensive as it sounds and can be done in 24hrs. Email me for a quote - NoFix, No Fee!

Colourful picture


Discoloration of this sort is caused by magnetism. All CRT TVs (like yours) have a de-gaussing coil around the picture tube that de-magnetizes the screen (more specifically the shadow mask) every time you turn it on. It is likely that the circuit that controls this coil is at fault. There is probably a cold solder joint where it connects to the main circuit board.

The other scenario is that someone (small child generally) has run a magnetic object very near to the screen, magnetizing the shadow mask (inside the picture tube) and causing a rainbow effect. This is less likely if the rainbow effect is a nice even circular shape. Generally if it's been magnetized by a magnet as described the discolored areas will appear blotchy.

In short, if you have some electronics skills, get in there with your soldering iron and touch up the connections to the de-gaussing coil. If not, find someone who does.
