    My iPod nano screen suddenly went blank in the middle of a song. The song continued playing and I could switch songs and everything, but there was no text on the screen. It did still light up however. So, on these boards here, I found the supposed solution where I was to "toggle the hold switch and and off" and then to simultaniously hold menu and the centre button for aboutm "6 to 8 seconds". Well I did this, and after about 3 or 4 seconds, it turned off my iPod rather than showing me the apple logo and fixing my problem. So I continued to do this again and again, and still nothing. I've tried doing it when it was off and when it was on. All I got was a couple stuck pixels (which fixed themselves) and a bunch of grey lines on the screen. Please! someone help. Also, I've had this problem before and my brother fixed it for me in a few seconds probably by doing the same thing that you offered to do because I saw the apple logo, but it doesn't turn up this time. Again, PLEASE HELP ME

    I just looked at my iPod again, and it is all GREY now. It will no longer play songs and when I try to plug it into the computer to fix the problem, the screen goes blank and it doesn't respond.

    I have the exact same problem. I've done all the suggested steps on the ipod help menu. When I push the two buttons at the same time all I see is a dark screen with very faint lines. No apple.

Is this an ipod???
if so 

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

MY lights come on but the LCD screen is blank and it is beeping. Please help

Check that the LCD screen adjustment has not been dimmed or darkened. If that is not the case, then a component is or has most likely failed.

Lg km900 blank screen during an incoming call -

There is a little rectangle shape thing next to the lg logo on the top of the fone screen. If this is blocked by screen protector it will cause the phone to blank of during calls. Its a power saver that blanks the phone when its near your face. Try it. Take off the screen protector & make a call. Then place your finger over the little thing & the screen goes blank. Just cut a lil space in the screen protector & that will fix the problem
