ipod white screen of death solution

A guest asked about the iPod white screen of death fix:

My iPod has ‘Apple White Screen of Death’. When I hold ‘select’ and ‘menu’ it turns off and it’s still white. Then it beeps twice. help!

Here is how to fix the iPod white screen of death.

Hold the home button then while still holding down the home button hold volume up button then while still holding those buttons hold the power off button until you see the Apple sign. That’s it. Its hard reset iPod to clear White Screen of Death.


Hold the home button and sleep or lock button at the top of the device for 10 seconds or more until it powers down and then restart it.

If you hold down the home and menu buttons only, it will still work and fix the issue.

    Hey, Mr Wizzard.. you need to do more follow up. After future power off the white screen will appear again.It is not a fix just a temp that gets tiresome.
