Re: Ipod 30G screen is partly black
Has it been dropped anytime in the past? It could be as simple as a loose ribbon cable inside or a damaged circuit board for the video side. Try tapping it around and lightly banging it's back side to see if it comes back for a moment.

1. Try a 'Restore'. Connect your iPod with the cable that came with it to the USB port on your computer. In iTunes, click and (Restore).
2. It's possible that the hard drive is dying. Google "iPod repairs" in your country and you should be able to find someone who can fix it. The usually have a self diagnosis on line so will get an idea of the cost before you begin
I do not know if this is what you are having difficulties with but when I first got the 30 gig iPod I did not realize that I needed to squeeze the plug on both this sides to remove it from the iPod. If this is not your difficulty then perhaps you should try to describe it in more detail.
I had this same problem and tried everything posted on the internet to get it working. Nothing was working...
I had the harddrive replaced at some point but some internet ipod drive
saver guys. Got it back working fine. Then my battery wouldn't stay
charged very long, so I bought a replacement and swapped it myself.
Worked fine initially but shortly after got the lock icon in the top
left, regardless of the HOLD switch position.
After trying everything else, I opened the case again, and moved the
switch on and off using the exposed connector on the inside rather than
by the external part of the switch. While doing that, I instantly saw
the screen light up on the table it was laying on. I turned it over
and the lock was gone! So apparently, there must have been some issue
with the HOLD switch that by moving from the inside was able to fix.
Hi iPods do not come with FM tuners. FM tuners can be bought and added on as an extra feature, but this is a third party device, not an iPod device.
Generally, when you connect the third party FM tuner to the iPod, the iPod will recognize it and you can use the 3rd party FM tuner to change stations.
If you do not have the FM tuner to connect to the iPod, the individual that sold you the iPod did not include the FM tuner to connect to the the iPod. In that case, the Menu will still list the FM tuner, but there is no device to connect to the iPod.
