My iPod fell and the screen turned white, why?
I dropped my ipod and when i picked it up to look at it i couldnt see the screen it was just white and ive tried everything what can i do??
The LCD connector on those is taped down with copper tape so I do not believe it came loose. Does it still make any noise when you plug it in or lock and unlock it? Chances are you need a new LCD/Digitizer assembly. This is a tricky one to replace and I recommend seeking professional help if you are not experienced with this sort of thing.
my 7th gen ipod fell today for the first time and the screen just blacked out with a white line on one side. it wont make any sound when plugged in and i cant turn it off. help me
My daughter received a 7th generation at Christmas. She is so very careful with it Today it slipped from her hand from about 2 ft. Screen went green, then reddish, then white with about 1/2" black line on right side. No cracks or marks after the fall.
We have tried all above, itunes doesn't recognize it. Has anyone found an answer to this problem. Sounds like faulty manufacturing.
Either your LCD connector came loose or your LCD/Digi ASSY needs to be replaced. I suggest pushing really hard on the top/mid-right portion of the screen and then performing a hard reset using the Sleep and home buttons.
If a hard reset or putting it in dfu mode does not work.....White screen either is a bad lcd or a bad logic board. I have seen allot of bad logic boards in the 2nd and 3rd gens.
if you have dropped it in water which i did leave it on a radiator for a while it seems to fix it well this worked for me anyways :)
Hi! I had the same problem, my iPod fell on the floor and the screen is white as i turn it on.
iTunes recognizes it, it makes sounds as I unlock the screen. Tried to restore it, but nothing changed...
I´ll try the suggestions above.
I tried the two suggestions above and they didn't work....
Does someone have any idea what might be the problem?
It works fine with iTunes and does unlock, but the screen is white with a gray stripe on the side...
Thanks for any help!
Sounds like the connection is bad or the lcd was damaged during drop.

Best of luck. It's not as hard as some people say. Just be careful and steady, don't push or pull too hard, and use common sense.

When an Apple iPhone's screen turns white, it is usually due to a fall or other type of impact. According to Apple support, the problem is often easy to fix at home without any special tools. By conducting your own troubleshooting to resolve the problem, you can save the time and money it would take to visit an Apple Store for repair.
Rebooting the iPhone
When your screen goes white, Apple suggests that you try turning the iPhone off and then back on again. In many cases, the screen will be back to normal when the phone reboots. If your phone will not turn off, you can try to reset it by holding down the power and home buttons concurrently for at least 10 seconds until the screen flashes and the Apple logo appears.
Restoring From a Backup
If restarting and resetting the iPhone do not eliminate the white screen, Apple suggests that you restore the phone's software from a backup copy on your computer. To do so, you must connect the phone to your computer, launch iTunes, click on the device's name in the sidebar, choose "Summary" and click on "Restore iPhone." The phone will be restored to the last backup version, which means that you will lose any data or settings that you have added since the backup was created.

None of these suggestions work. The screen is white and the corners are black. At first the screen was green and had lines and now this. It doesn’t make any noises at all. Please help me I just got this iPod.
