Ipod 80gig - white screen problem

I believe that this is the white screen of death that everyone is talking about. I can listen to music, but the display is completely white.

I have tried to resore and reset. Also drained the battery with no success. Is there anything else that I can do to try to resolve this issue?

Your input would be appreciated.

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.
