    iTouch has a white screen. A forced reboot did not fix it, or did a restore. I was still able to hit the sleep button to turn the screen on and off and every thing shows up in itunes.

    is connector or something bad?
    can I open and fix myself?
    I'm handy with a pipe wrench.

    i have this exact same problem....its not permanently fixed but i did get the screen to work for a while (a couple of days) by slamming it on my bed repeatedly. but now even when i do that, it'll only last a couple hours tops.

    It's the connector in the iPod connecting the screen to the motherboard. I know from experience.

    In other words, get it repaired.
