White screen on my ipod 2gb nano


Hey,

there are a few possible reasons for this

1. the lcd screen is damaged.
in this case the lcd screen would need to be replaced,
check warranty and apple repairs https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do


2. the board or the cable between the lcd is broken or damaged.
the lcd screen would need to be replaced or the flex cable, but that might be difficult.

Hey


Hi golden, I don't think I have good news for you.

If the Ipod is gone through a complete wash, staying a long time in cold and hot water with detergent, and being bumped around all the time, then drying it will not be enough.

The water has for sure gone into the LCD display, into the internal memory, has shorted circuits etc.

The internal battery had lso been probably damaged by water.

I am afraid the only thing you can do is getting a replacement if the Ipod is still covered with guaranty.

Let me know if by chance the Ipod turns on showing something on screen.

Replace the display screen


Hello acid_hussain,

Sorry to hear about your MP3 player. Unfortantely, physical damage such as a cracked screen isn't covered by most manufacturer's warranties. The unit is likely repairable but you will probably have to pay for those repairs.

To get service you should contact Phillips through their website or take the player to a local consumer electronics store that offers repair servies, such as Best Buy™.

Best Regards,

Broken screen


Hello mimi94,

You can take your Insignia MP3 player into any Best Buy™ store to get service. Since broken screens are considered to be physical damage you will likely have to pay for an estimate to determine the cost of repairs. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may find that it makes better economic sense to purchase a replacement MP3 player rather then get the unit repaired.

Best Regards

Craked mp3 screen.


Hello paulgilby,

Cracked LCD screens are one of the most common problems experienced with MP3 players. Unfortunately such a failure is considered to be physical damage and is generally not covered by any warranty on the unit.

If you have experience repairing electronics devices you may be able to repair the device yourself. Parts are typically available from the manufacturer. The manufacturer may be able to offer repair services for you as well. However, depending on the extent of the damage it may make more economic sense to simply replace the unt.

Broken Sansa e260 screen needs fixin


Broken screens, unfortunately, are not being replaced by the manufacturer. You will have to replace the player outright. If the screen ALONE is damaged, you can buy a broken version (as long as the breakage is not in the screen), and you can superglue a screen back on - note: glue can damage other parts - doesn't look pretty. The problem is that, usually, it is not JUST the screen that is broken - an internal component is damaged as well. It is not cost-effective for the Mp3 manufacturer's to repair this kind of damage, so they just offer replacements. Sorry!

My Ipod Nano went throught the wash?


Hello AllieBaba,

I am sorry to hear about your Ipod Nano. Unfortunately Best Buy's™ Product Replacement Plan (PRP) does not cover liquid or physical damage. As such, the PRP would not cover the damage sustained by a MP3 player that was run through the wash.

Call Apple and find out if warranty covers, because physical damage requires replacement - NONE of the Mp3 manufatcurers will offer replacement parts other than cd's, usb cords, headphones, and batteries

Screen Tear


Hello patriotisaac,

Best Buy can repair the screen on your Insignia MP3 player if it is damaged. To get service take the unit into the Geek Squad counter at your local Best Buy store. The store will assist you in getting the unit sent out to one of our service centers for repair.

Be aware that screen damage is not covered by the manufacturer's limited warranty. That means that you would be responsible for the cost of the repairs, including paying a diagnosis fee up front (which would be applied toward the cost of the repair if you accept the estimate).

To be honest, depending on the extent of the damage, it may be in your best interests to simply consider replacing the MP3 player with a new one. Because of the high cost of repair and the affordability of new MP3 players, it may simply be more economical to purchase a new MP3 player rather then repairing the damaged one. Again, your local Best Buy store can help guide you in making the best decision for you.

Best regards,
Ken
