    My iPod Touch 2g 8GB just shows a white screen now. I took it apart and when I put it back together, I accidentally reversed the gold piece and it shorted out a resistor I think. It smelled like something was burning was I noticed something was wrong. I quickly took out the gold piece and the screen was white. I tried restoring and restarting but it still shows a white screen. The smells comes from the backside bottom right corner of my iPod logic board. Anyone know what may be causing it to display a white screen? I have the iPod off right now and if I turn it on it starts to smell like something is melting.

    Can this tiny part be replaced since that's what is causing the smell?

    If you still have warranty send it to apple and see what you can do. NEVER physically tamper with internal hardware beCause the results can be catastropic
