    my dad just bought me [2nd hand] an ipod touch, it is serial 1b908
    2009 week 8?


    anyway the screen on the left isnt working like, not majorly but i cant connect to wifi because my password has a 1 inside and the areas of the screen affectred contains the letters Q aand 1..


    so yh thats how small of an area is affected.

    It didnt come with a box so i was wondering if i took it to an apple store would they give me a new one?

    im only 16 too and some stores dont take teens seriously and might just send me away



    any ideas?

    Probably a hardware (digitizer) issue and you won't get it replaced unless it's still under warranty. Your best bet is to restore and work around the dead screen area but first do a full restore w/o back up to a clean stock 3.1.2 firmware and see if that fixes it.

    but i figured out

    if you need 1
    open calculator, type 1 copy - paste


    if you need q
    open notes, turn keyboard on side, type q and copy - paste

    ooh another Q sorry,
    is the digitzer something that will constantly get worse and all ym screen will end up crapped or will it just be that area?
