    so i already have my ipod touch pulled apart to replace the digitizer, which should be here tommorow. in the mean time, my LCD has gone crazy, and is all white now. i can still see the stuff on the screen, so it is like the colors have inverted?! very odd, anyways i was wondering if there was a cause to this, or should i just replace the LCD while i have my touch apart? thanks everyone in advance

    Just plug it in better.

    Or if your lazy, just shake your iPod till its fixed.

    I dont really know...

    Did it happen recently? Sometimes my LCD would go back to normal after a while.

    ya happened earlier today. err scratch that make it last night. like i said i still have it apart, waiting on the new digitizer and glass cuz i cracked it. ur the first i saw on here searched all the older threads...
    ------------------double post merged------------------
    update: i think the LCD was just straight broken to begin with, from when i cracked the front glass. there were tiny cracks underneath the tape at the top of the screen, and theyve spread and its def broken now. thanks for helpin tho!
