This is the 3rd I Pod I have had and they all have broke AFTER my warrenty of course.  I too have the white lines and my nano is now unresponsive.  I have restored and re booted several times with no luck. I believe Apple engineers the I Pods so they  break down and you are then forced to buy another one because the repair prices are so high.  There are so many posts on this web site about the "white lines across the nano screen" yet I see not one reply from Apple as to a possible solution.  I would like to find another brand to get out of the perpetual cycle of dumping my money into another new I Pod.


If anyone has a solution please let me know ( you too Apple)

    First of all, sorry to hear about your repeated troubles with your iPods.


    Do you have all of your iPods protected with a case and do you take care when lugging them around with you?


    Have you tried letting the iPod's battery fully drain and sit for a few days?  Sometimes that helps clear up issues such as the one you are experiencing. It might be necessary to do a restore in iTunes after that again as well.


    Yes, Apple charges quite a bit for out of warranty repairs/replacements, but you can also choose to go with a third party service instead. These third party services, will actually swap out the damaged part at a lower cost.  Just Google for "iPod screen repair" and you should get a number of results to work with.

    Are you able to connect to it iTunes to restore it?


    P.S. Are you on Easter Island?


    I can't answer that.
