    Here's the thing.

    My iPod can sync to iTunes & I can sync things to it. Thing is I just can't seem to get it turned on.

    So, I'm having trouble with that. And I just got it to start working. I think it was bricked. (Normal restore wouldn't work.)

    The only option I really don't want to hear is, return it to Apple. <_<

    EDIT: Sorry, I didn't read your post correctly! If your screen problem is not fixed after a restore, it's some kind of hardware fault and you'll have to return it to Apple.


    Try DFU mode first, it's the lowest-level restore possible. Search the forums for a tutorial on how to put your iPod into DFU. Then, it should let itself restore.
    Once, my iPod was randomly stuck in DFU mode (black screen) and refused to restore. This may have happened to you. If you try all possible button combinations (like DFU and recovery mode) and nothing works, return it to Apple. That's what happened to my iPod: Even they failed to DFU-restore it and gave me a new one (hardware fault)!

    Hope this helps,

    Check for water damage; If there isn't any i.e. water indicator is still white), take it back to apple.

    Where is the water indicator?


    My iPod will play music & and it is responsive I can hear when I slide the little unlock screen. I can play music through the speakers. I can play the music and go to different songs. But I can't see anything.... I'm going to restore it one more time, see what happens....

    The water indicater is in the headphone jack. When you restored did you use a backup?

    hit the restore button. If iTunes says software is not available just download the firmware off the internet
