    my little brother has a 8 gig ipod touch secondgeneration and as of today his backlight does not turn on any more. There is no light but we can still see the screen like the gameboy color. Its a bit unfair because he earned his for christmas and now this happens. The recipt expired and there is no warranty. But while holding down the top button and the home button at the same time for about 45 seconds to a minute i did manage to get the light to cut back on. But as soon as i let go of the top button the light iommediately cut off.
    Please help i appreciate the help thankyou to everyone that can help.
    Ps allready restored it, and it didnt do a thing.

    Doesn't it come with a 1-year warranty?

    Reboot. Probably just a temporary software error.

    also, check the Brightness in the Settings app.

    Yoo i appreciate the quick feed back thanks guys.
    his ipod was jailbroken but i insisted that i re-jailbroke it.
    so i did. That did not work. Then i figured hey why not
    restore it back to official firmware. That did not work neither
    The brightness has always been on low and the ipod is currently off.
    if anyone has anymore ideas or suggestions please let me know. My little brother was only able to enjoy his ipod touch for about 5 months.

    Hey guess what you guys the light is back working
    and its brighter than ever. My brother is happy.
    All he did was press down on the bottom left of it
    as if he were trying to move it
    and it turned back on!
