Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Why doesn't the touch screen work on my ipod touch 4th generation?


By reset you mean holding the home and power button down? If so, it sure sounds like it is the digitizer. If you are thinking about replacing it yourself, I would consider doing some research because these aren't fun to fix or easy. The screens never seem to sit right. In most cases, the LCD and digitizer come together as one piece. Pricing starts around 30 dollars. Also, check to see if there are any recalls because apple would replace it for free. If you need any further assistance, feel free to ask!

How do you restore a ipod touch 4g


The fourth generation iPod is identified as the iPod with the click wheel and color display, and also known as the iPod Photo. All models of the iPod 4G include the click wheel and full color display, making it easy to view album artwork and photos. Subsequent versions of the iPod also have video capabilities. If you are having trouble with your iPod 4G, there is a series of steps you can follow to try to fix the problem. Start by resetting the iPod (see Below). http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/photo/ If this doesn't do the trick, you may need to restore the iPod, which replaces potentially corrupt software components. Doing so will erase all the iPod's files, so you should make sure you have your files backed up in the iTunes Library.

Download and install the latest version of iTunes. Open the program. Connect your iPod to your computer using a USB cord. Select your iPod from the device list in iTunes once it appears. Click "Restore" on the "Summary" tab of the main screen. iTunes will prompt you to select from one or more restore options. Choose how you want to restore the iPod. The first part of the restore will begin. You'll see a progress bar on the screen. Leave the iPod connected to finish the restore, as iTunes prompts you to do. The iPod will now show an Apple logo and progress bar on its screen. Follow the prompts of the iTunes Setup Assistant when it appears onscreen. Enter a name for the iPod. Choose your syncing preferences. Reload your iPod files from the iTunes Library.

Ipod touch half white screen


This is actually really easy to do.

This called a hard reboot.


All you have to do is hold the home button and the power button down at the same time for 30 to 40 seconds or until you get a Apple sign on your screen.

This will reboot your ipod.


If this does not work there is one other thing you can try to do.

Hook your ipod touch up to your computer that you use itunes on.


Itunes will detect a problem with your ipod.

You can try a restore of your ipod from your computer.


If this does not work its time to return or send your ipod back to apple so they can repair it.


hope this helps

Half my iTouch screen is white


You have a failure in your display or display cable.

You need to have it serviced, your best bet is is to take it to the genius bar and have them look at it.

My Ipod Touch 4G 8Gb has a screen malfunction in which the screen turns incredibly bright and the bottom half displays a faint copy of the top half. The whole thing basically looks like an old film fliter...


It is possible that your display is faulty or the connector has become loose. To fix this, check whether your iPod is covered under warranty, if not, you'll have to pay, but regardless, you should take it to your local Apple store to get it fixed, immediately. If you have just purchased the iPod, return to the dealer and ask for a replacement.

HELP! A half to a third of my iPod touch screen went white. Fix?


hi there, it sounds like the screen has dead pixels to me. If it is under warranty, they will be happy to fix it for you. If not, then I recommend getting a new iPod touch.

Ipod white screen


Reset the iPod:
  1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
  3. You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.


Put iPod into Disk Mode:

Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
  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.

For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode.

Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.
