Answer to "White screen after changing rear panel"I was attempting to replace the LCD in my 2G iPod Touch, and now my iPod has the same issue. I'm positive it is a fried logic board, more specifically the GPU, or the part of the board that deals with displaying a picture. I had my new screen installed, but I couldn't get my iPod to turn on, so I took the whole thing apart (removing all the guts from the shell) and miraculously it worked! So I reassembled the thing, but the screen stopped working when the USB connector was put into place. Curious as to why this was happening, I plugged my iPod in (after pulling the logic board out again), and my display worked once more. I quick unplugged the USB cable and placed the logic board back where it belongs, and I was thanked with the smell of electrical burning. At that point, my iPod was toast, but just to be sure, I lined the back of the metal case with electrical tape and put the logic board back in, and voila! I have a $200 flashlight. The thing is now a picture-less iPod Touch.
