My ipod's screen is dark even when the battery is fully charged. I can hardly read the screen which makes it pretty hard to use when working out which is when I use it the most. I have checked the settings on the Ipod many times and I have the Brightness turned up as far as it can go. Changing the brightness has no effect on the screen. I have also tried to restore all the factory settings with no avail. The screen is too dark. The Ipod seems to function correctly otherwise. I do think this may be a problem with the battery because I have noticed that the battery doesn't hold a charge as well as it used to. I figured the unit was just getting old. Can this be fixed and is it worth it or should I just junk it?

Ipod Nano Third Generation, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    I also experience this isue. Also my IPOD nano 8GB seems to have an issue with complying to shut down etc. Some small pressure on the back of it (like if you place it on a table) will make it go on again (even though Hold is on). When on it has Dimmed light.
    As it is not turned of correctly, it does not hold battery very long.
    I have had this Ipod for more than 2 years.

    It has never behavied in this manor before, but I suspect a resent upgrade to latest firmware to might have something to do with it.

    Will investigate.
