Replaced LCD, but new one is all white!

I have a 16gb 2nd gen touch that was given to me. It had a broken LCD and a broken front glass/digitizer. The Ipod would sync with Itunes and play music in my car, but the LCD would not light up/turn on. I bought a replacement LCD and a whole front panel assembly. I successfully disassembled the Ipod and took out the bad screen. I put the new LCD in and before putting the front panel back on I decided to power it on to check the LCD. all the shows up is a solid white screen. I was wondering if anyone had an idea what it could be. I have read several posts iPod touch working completely, but screen is WHITE! why? and Why is my iPod touch screen white?. Is it a bad logic board or is it a crappy LCD that I purchased off of eBay? I would prefer to do some things before i seal up the Ipod so any input regarding the LCD/ inside of the Ipod would be appreciated as I don't want to keep opening and closing the Ipod.



Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

well I restored my Ipod 2 times and the screen works now. In order to the the touchscreen to respond I have to push on the screen very hard and the home button doesn't work at all. I have restored it again with the same results. please take note that i did buy the whole front panel assembled with home button and all. Any ideas?

First try this to fix the iPod Touch white screen of death, press in the sleep/wake button on the top left of the device, and the big circular home button on the front face on the bottom. Do this for roughly 10 or more seconds and the device should shut down/off. Give if a moment and then restart the device.

If it still does not work open it back up and double check all of your connections and recheck the work you already done. I doubt it is the new screen but I supose as a last resort, it could be a bad LCD. Hope this at least gets you started into the right direction. Good Luck
