    my damn lil bro took my ipod touch and smashed it on the ground. there is no visible damage (it had a case on it) other than the metal back of the touch is a lil off alignment with the rest of the ipod. whenever i press the power button, nothing happens. i plugged it into my computer and itunes said its in recovery mode and needs to be restored. restoring doesnt work, and i can't see any display on my ipod watsoever. is there no hope to fix my touch?

    Well, if it dropped so hard that the case has become misaligned or dented there is a good chance you have a hardware failure. Take a good look at the LCD in bright light and see if you see any dark areas or spots that might indicate a cracked LCD. Although typically you get some bright areas I have repaired a few where the LCD was just completely toast.

    You may want to open it up and verify that the cables that attached the LCD to the logic board are still connected. Depending on the area that is now separated it may have created enough room for these cables to pop loose during the impact.

    I know we provide free diagnostics for iPhones I am sure there is one near you that will take a look for free.
