    I've been getting a strange problem with my 1st Gen 16GB iPod Touch. About a week ago, my friend was playing with my iPod. He put it in standby when he was done and gave it to me. I couldn't turn the screen on after that. Later, it somehow turned on, but the colors were inverted and everything was mirrored. I took it home and connected it to my computer. iTunes detected it and I restored it. It worked after that.

    But yesterday, I got the same problem. It just randomly fixed itself though.

    And today, I got it again, but this time, it didn't fix itself, and restoring didn't work. Anyone know what to do? I still have two weeks of warranty, and it's not jailbroken, so I can take it to the Apple Store, but I wanna see if there's a fix for this.

    So I'm guessing there's no fix for this?

    Most likely not. It looks to me like it's a hardware problem with the processor or the touch screen. Take it to Apple and they will be happy to replace/fix it.

    Before u hand it over try DFU restoreing to a different firmware first, that's the only other thing.
