I have had a problem similar to this recently though my ipod is always white. 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.

My iPod is just a white screen. when I try to restart it, it beeps twice, the screen shuts off, then the white screen comes back on.


Try this 1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off. 2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears 3.Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
If this doesn't help try reseting it to factory settings from itunes(Warning!! resetting will erase everything from the ipod)

Ipod white screen


If you go to itunes, and go to your ipod summary, there should be a button that says refresh. Click on that, then just sync your songs back on.

My 1st gen ipod has a blank screen


If your ipod has a white screen reset your ipod. You can do this by pressing and holding the menu button and the center button in your ipod. Keep pressing both until the apple logo appears this should reset your ipod. If it does not work try again. This worked for mine good luck :)

installed.

if you are having the problem of a blank white screen, dont freak out! hold down the menu and select button for about 15 seconds or until the appel logo appears.if this doesnt work try plugging in your ipod. if that doesnt work wiggle the lock and unlock button a couple of times. if all these soulutions dont work go to www.apple.com and call customer support
