- Did you open it up? Sometimes if you are not careful you can damage the speaker.
- Try pluggin it into a computer and see if itunes recognizes it. Did you make sure the LCD connector is in completely? Did you bend any of the pins on the LCD connector? It is worth trying the old screen to see if that one works. If all else fails try putting it into DFU mode, but fair warning it will erase your ipod.
- You would need to open it up to see if its a bad button or if you damaged the ribbon and bracket that holds it in place.
- Something is touching the LCD. It could be a ton of different things. Where specifically is the rainbow effect happening? Is it all across the top of more on one side? With every screen replacement there is usually some sort of distortion since the ipod was exposed to dust. Here is a little checklist that might be helpful Did you leave the metal rear camera shield on? Try removing that if so. You do not need that Did you line up the metal bracket on the screen correctly? Is the front facing camera sitting correctly? On the emi shield there is a little black sticky part toward the top right, make sure there is no debris there, make sure the shield is seated correctly as well. Check the back of the LCD, make sure there are no markings. If you try to put it on with a piece of glass (or some debris) it can leave a little dimple and that can give the rainbow effect.
- Try putting it into DFU mode holding the power and home button. Every once in a while that fixes the issue. Is it water damaged at all?
- That won't necessarily make the ipod not turn on. Try charging the ipod with a wall charger to make sure its not dead.
- Con is correct, usually the bend is where the impact was and depending on where it is located it should be fairly easy to bend back, just be careful. Also double check that your adhesive is laid flat and there is no debris such as broken glass, old adhesive or dust where the screen sits.
- Make sure you connected the digitizer ribbon, you should kind of feel it click into place, be sure to double check that it works before you put it all back together.
- It goes on the other side of the red wire. If you can make the wire reach that far it may be salvageable, if not you will have to replace the whole component. You have to de-solder and re-solder the connections.
- The LCD is damaged. You will have to replace it.
