Right to Repair



Original post by: Andy D ,


Hi all I've been reading this with much interest as I just replaced the screen on my ipod touch and got white screen.

I reset it by pressing sleep and hold and it went off and completely died. Would not charge power up or be recognised by itunes.

So followed Robs advice and shorted battery, yay ipod now powers up to white screen.

Connected to itunes and pressed power button for 3 seconds then while pressing power pressed home as well for 10 seconds and got restore message on itunes.

Now downloading restore software so hopefully this will resolve all issues.

This was the most useful thread I have come across for resolving this issue so massive thanks Rob.

Will update tomorrow once ipod restored and hopefully working again fingers crossed.
