No it cannot - I know you don't like that answer, but it is the only honest answer. It is more expensive to repair a problem of this kind than to buy a new Mp3 player. You cannot simply glue a new screen onto there (Apple wouldn't sell you replacement parts anyways), since other parts are most likely also damaged.

My v touch pro touch screen wont work


b> The Touch Pro2, manufactured by HTC, is a smartphone designed to be used with the Verizon wireless phone network. This smartphone combines a cell phone, PDA, MP3 player and wireless Internet access into a small, portable device. If the device begins malfunctioning or freezing, you can perform a soft reset. A soft reset does not delete any of your saved information. It shuts the phone down and reboots the phone to the Verizon Today Welcome Screen.

Pull the stylus upward to remove it from the side of the phone. Push the back cover upward using your thumbs until it pops from the back of the Touch Pro2 phone. The back cover can then be lifted away and removed from the phone. Press the "Reset" button, on the upper, left side of the back panel using the stylus tip. The device will now restart and display the Verizon Today screen. Snap the back cover back onto the back of the phone. Touch Screen is Not Working
As most tablet PCs ,Phones and Mp3 players are full touchscreen devices, you use your touchscreen for everything you need to do on your Tablet PC. If the touchscreen stops working, you can't get much use out of your Tablet. Touchscreen issues are caused by hardware or software problems, but check with your manufacturer before attempting a DIY repair.

Hardware Issues Damages to the surface of your Tablet PC can cause the touchscreen to malfunction or stop working entirely. For example, putting pressure on the screen, such as placing the Tablet PC in a bag with other heavy items, can cause cracking along the screen. Exposing the screen to water, even in small amounts, can cause the electrical system within the touchscreen to malfunction. If the electrical system malfunctions, the touchscreen stops working properly. b> Screen Sensitivity b> Pressing the touchscreen on your Tablet PC sends a signal to the internal motherboard. The motherboard then transmits to other components, such as the hard drive. The accuracy of the touchscreen depends on the screen's sensitivity. Many Tablet PCs include a program for calibrating the touchscreen. This program may fix minor responsive issues. Even a small amount of dirt or debris can effect how the touchscreen responds. Cleaning your touchscreen with an electronics cleaner or a microfiber cloth may help improve sensitivity. b> Software Issues b> A driver is a software program that interacts between hardware devices and an operating system, Your Tablet PC needs the right drivers for your OS to work correctly. Outdated or missing drivers can cause the touchscreen to work improperly, or not respond at all. Visit the manufacturer's website to find the right drivers for your Tablet PC. b> Repair b> While you can perform some minor repairs yourself, such as re-calibrating the touchscreen sensitivity or installing drivers, only perform a hardware repair if you have a good working knowledge of electronics, specifically Tablet PCs. Before attempting to repair your device, contact your manufacturer. If your Tablet PC has a warranty, completing an unauthorized repair may make you ineligible for claiming that warranty. Hope this helps

That means you have a bad digitizer. When the screen was changed so was your digitizer which is a part of the touchscreen on the back. When your glass was changed so was the digitizer which is attached to it. You a new touchscreen...

MY ipod touch has black dots all over the front and the touch screen doesnt work but the menu button does work and it turns on but i cant unlock it after i turn it on... I tried turning it off but since...


If you have black dots one of two things is broken
  1. The Video Controller is broken
  2. The LCD is broken
If you cant use the touch then the issue is a broken or disconnected touch panel (The touch and LCD are two separate components)

This is easily fixed for about $100. I replaced mine after a fatal fall shattered my front glass. and components.

If you are not tech savvy, call Apple they can fix it, but if your not covered by warranty then it'll cost you A LOT!

Dropped my mp3


Did it shatter? Does it power on? If it powers on,then just perform a reset by inserting a small #1 paperclip into the reset hole either on the front or the top of the device -hold it in for 20-30 seconds, release and wait. The Rio should pwoer back on.

If it shattered, then we are in trouble. Rio no longer manufactures mp3 players. The Geek Squad will charge more to repair it, then it would cost to get a new Mp3 player.
