My IPOD has been working fine up until now.


Now my screen wont even turn on...


When plugging the ipod into the computure my IPOD is being recognised by my computure but the screen still doesn't turn on.


I have tried to reset it - no luck...


Occsionally it flashes but that's about it...


Any ideas??

    Take a flashlight to the Nano's display or use it in a dark room to see if you then see the display.  If so, it's likely that the backlight has gone out, meaning you'll actually need to replace the entire LCD display.


    If you don't consider yourself handy with repairing small electronics, you can send it to Apple to be serviced for  flat fee or you can choose to go with a third party service center who can do the job for a little less.
