    The screen on my iPod touch has become extremely dark all of a sudden. Everything is working properly but it is impossible to use since you can only see the things on the screen when you hold it at the right angle with the light.

    I believe my iPod is still under warranty but I was wondering if there is anything I can try before I pursue the warranty coverage.


    Thanks.

    This happened before. Reboot! You can still see the screen-- probably some jailbroken bug thing.
