    try holding the home button for 15 seconds, it should go into restore mode and then you can restore it, thats if it is your problem

    This won't work. Your Ipod is broken i had the same problem and returned it to my local gravis store. Nearly 100% you'll get a refurbished ipod touch 1g.

    It's a German Apple Store replacement.
    My iPod was messed up too. Yours is probably stuck in DFU mode, that happened to me too. The white screen can either show that the iPod wants to be restored but can't, or that your screen is broken. I took mine to a Gravis store too, but those are only in Germany so you could might as well take it to a flagship store or Wal-Mart.

    I doubt you'd have to pay. It's really Apple's flaw here (Made in China

    ) so it would be pretty unfair to charge for repair. I did not, though. You're out of luck though if you have your touch since more than 1 year, then you'd have to pay or you could just buy the new one. (Stupid Apple 1-year warranty!

    Dunno. I'd just give it a try if I were you. In my German Gravis store, they just wanted to know a phone/cellphone number so they can call you up/text you when they got a replacement (and your name of course

    ) but no receipt or credit card number. If you somehow find the reciept, be sure to bring it with you. If not, just try. I didn't even buy my iPod at that store but they replaced it anyway because they have to, I think

    Sorry, didn't read the 'online' part. I bought my iPod online too and they just replaced it!
