The white screen is really just your backlight working. You said you tried everything. Not quite sure what everything entails but try to "Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears." Also see if you can place it in DFU, follow this http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pla... video. You did not mention if itunes or your computer still recognize your iPod. My guess would be,no.

The LCD connector on those is taped down with copper tape so I do not believe it came loose. Does it still make any noise when you plug it in or lock and unlock it? Chances are you need a new LCD/Digitizer assembly. This is a tricky one to replace and I recommend seeking professional help if you are not experienced with this sort of thing.

Either your LCD connector came loose or your LCD/Digi ASSY needs to be replaced. I suggest pushing really hard on the top/mid-right portion of the screen and then performing a hard reset using the Sleep and home buttons.

If a hard reset or putting it in dfu mode does not work.....White screen either is a bad lcd or a bad logic board. I have seen allot of bad logic boards in the 2nd and 3rd gens.

Hi!

I tried the two suggestions above and they didn't work....

Does someone have any idea what might be the problem?

It works fine with iTunes and does unlock, but the screen is white with a gray stripe on the side...

Thanks for any help!

Shipping takes 2-4 weeks if you get it from China. If you get it from the US your shipping time will be 2-14 days, but it'll cost more.

When an Apple iPhone's screen turns white, it is usually due to a fall or other type of impact. According to Apple support, the problem is often easy to fix at home without any special tools. By conducting your own troubleshooting to resolve the problem, you can save the time and money it would take to visit an Apple Store for repair.

Rebooting the iPhone

When your screen goes white, Apple suggests that you try turning the iPhone off and then back on again. In many cases, the screen will be back to normal when the phone reboots. If your phone will not turn off, you can try to reset it by holding down the power and home buttons concurrently for at least 10 seconds until the screen flashes and the Apple logo appears.

Restoring From a Backup

If restarting and resetting the iPhone do not eliminate the white screen, Apple suggests that you restore the phone's software from a backup copy on your computer. To do so, you must connect the phone to your computer, launch iTunes, click on the device's name in the sidebar, choose "Summary" and click on "Restore iPhone." The phone will be restored to the last backup version, which means that you will lose any data or settings that you have added since the backup was created.
