    Hi everybody,

    I have a huge scratch on my screen ... my dad say that it is a crack but i can't feel it with my nail .

    The problem is that it make a rainbow colored effect at this place .

    I just purchased some Cerium Oxide . I applied it manually but after 30min I can just notice a light change.

    Does someone can help me to get rid of it ? ... or at least to make it smaller .

    It's a crack, or a deep scratch. You cannot feel the cracks unless it's smashed horribly.

    You can't actually feel cracks. Rainbow colored effect only proves it's a pretty light (undeep) crack.

    I dunno how to fix cracks, sorry.

    I suppose that it won't be covered by the warranty ?

    I reckon the only way is to get a new iPod
    but you can still get some good money for it on eBay
    spares or repairs

    By the looks of it, you might want to repair it..and I mean replacing the screen. Or, just get a new iPod and sell that one.
