Hi zoie, were/are you able to charge it? If not, can you remember if the battery was running low? If you can, how long - when fully charged - can you use the iPod in one session?

Chosen Solution

I would reset the iPod first

Press and hold the home and power button, and it will reset

If that fails, restore in DFU mode

To get into this mode, plug the cable into the computer

press the power and reset buttons till it resets

let go of the power button, but keep pressing the home button

If that fails, replace the battery

If that does not help, replace or reseat the screen connection in the iPod, which does mean you need a need a new display assembly if reseating is no help

here is that guide

iPod Touch 4th Generation Front Panel Replacement

If you want to replace the backlight coil, this is a plausable try, but it's tough, worse then the iPhone 3Gs due to the smaller size of the backlight coil

here is a coil

if you decide not to replace the backlight coil, you can sell for parts due to the fact i always suggest this more often then not due to the cost of the logicboard if that either A) does not help, the logicboard is fried or B) you don't have the experience, or time to change, and use the as-is iPod money to offset the cost of a new one

Looks better. Always leave it up to the person that is asking. We do not know what they can and can not do. All we can do is offer advise and be concise with the steps. Have a good day and pay attention to what they are teaching you:-)


here is why the old answer was not as good: I wrote it before bed with the intention to add on to it


last night too BTW
