I don't know how to solve this issue My ipod was on red. I was listening to music when it turned off due to it running out of battery. I plugged it in with a separate adaptor to a power plug to let it charge. I stupidly kept listening to music that way. In some little jiggle the power cable came loose from the ipod (the one that goes into the wide slot) and fell out. The ipod turned off by itself due to no power. Stupidly I pressed the center button. The ipod turned on but the screen turned on with a backlight. It alternated between a bright and low backlight with a purple line of pixels down the right. I plugged it into my computer to restore it, and the restoration failed. Now my ipod will not turn on, has a dark line of pixels down the right where it stands out from the others, and my computer will not recognize it. It lists it as an "unknown storage device" Does anyone have any clue to a solution? I know I am very stupid and I have learned my lesson when it comes to this. >< Does anyone know how to save me?
