Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2008 8:05 PM (in response to _Admiral_)It seems the LCD screen and the battery need to be replaced for your iPod. After doing few restores, which does not leave you with any other option but
Consider setting up a mail-in repair for your iPod http://depot.info.apple.com/ipod/
Or visit your local Apple Retail Store http://www.apple.com/retail/
In case your iPod is no longer covered by the warranty and you want to find a second repairing company, you can try iPodResQ or ifixit at your own risk

Currently Being ModeratedMay 9, 2008 8:47 AM (in response to Mitch 751)I have replaced my LCD with a brand new screen due to having my previous one cracked, but you think that the battery is somehow affecting it also?
After it's been connected to my computer for a while, it does hold the white blank screen for a good few hours before the battery dying...
Why would this be affecting it's ability to connect to the computer and iTunes without being in forced disk mode?PC

Currently Being ModeratedMay 9, 2008 10:12 AM (in response to Mitch 751)Alright, thanks, but how does that relate to my iPod battery lasting hours with the white screen at full brightness and yet not being able to connect to my computer normally? I'm sorry if it's a stupid question, but I just don't see the correlation.PC
