White screen after drop

I dropped my iPod and now my screen is white. The iPod still makes sounds, gives me notifications, and the buttons do what they're supposed to.. I can even unlock it by sliding my finger across it, but my screen it just white. I can't see what I'm doing.. Help?

If youve dropped it then its likely the screen has gone faulty and will need replacing.

There are guides on ifixit to help you replace the screen but you do so at your own risk as its not easy.

You can also buy the part from ifixit



Hi you can pick up a replacement screen for about $30 from ifixit found here

iPod 4G Display

there are plenty of guideas around to assist, but i do warn you its quite difficult if youve never done it before

Hello! It may be the LCD is damaged or the connector may have just popped loose. I would follow the guide here to open the ipod up and just reseat the connector first. May save some money. If that doesnt do the trick than I would order a replacement screen and replace. Not terribly difficult to do. The screens usually run about $15-$20 online.

Hope this helps
