    Here are some common iPod Touch 2g defects, each with a solution.

    1. Loose Screen
    2. Battery Issues
    3. Stuck Pixels/ Dead Pixels
    4. Blank Screen (White Screen of Death)
    5. Overheating
    6. Non-Responsive Screen
    7. All iTunes Errors that don't go away
    8. Speakers Don't Work

    All of these problems have one simple solution. (read below)

    You can make a Genius Bar appointment at your nearest Apple Retail Store, you can return it to the Apple Reseller that you bought it from, or you can call their toll-free number.

    With most of the above issues, we cannot help, but Apple can
    Be sure to try all of these troubleshooting steps before making an appointment, returning, ect.

    Here is the Apple Store locator for finding the nearest Retail location.

    Here is Apple's list of support phone numbers.

    If you have any other questions feel free to ask around as that's what we love to do.

    How "common" are these problems to you guys. I've had my 2G since September and haven't had any of these problems.

    This is for people with ipod defects who are asking for help here. Just because you aren't having these problems doesn't mean they aren't common. I've already had my iPod replaced twice because of battery and white screen issues.
