Screen randomly will turn white with random colors in different places

I accidentally broke my iPod screen. It doesn't look good. It will randomly work and then it work. I was wondering whether anyone knew why this happens. Why it randomly starts working and then it doesn't. I could not find my iPod so I have no picture of it.

Is this a good question?

It randomly starts working and then it doesn't because you broke your iPod's screen in such a way that there's now a damaged circuit that randomly connects and shorts.

Maybe, but the screen doesn't turn off, it just turns white with weird black things at the top where it's broken.


Yes. Same answer applies.


@diode_cool it sounds to me like what is being said here is that you need to replace your display to fix this.


@oldturkey03 Yeah... I tried to take it apart without using the right tools and it made it worse. Mistake on my part.
