Ipod won't display but music still plays and i can move around in menu...

My Ipod mini won't display anything on the screen even after I reset it, I even hear the click type sound come from the headphones when its turned on. Right now I'm listening to music and the screen isn't showing anything is my screen broke???If it is what do I do???

Open the iPod Software Updater application. It can be found by clicking on the Start menu, pointing to All Programs (Windows XP) or Programs (Windows 2000), and then point to iPod.
It says that but in the computer I don't have an Ipod thingy in my programs???

  • HT1339 I have an Ipod nano 5th Gen and the screen has been completely white for quite a while now. The music still plays and you can here the scrolling noise. It doesn't show anything on screen. I've tried everything on apple website to fix it but nothing

    Hello,
    My Ipod nano 5th Generation has gone to a white screen. I shows absolutely nothing. When I charge it it does not show the battery charge status. When I reset it I never see the apple logo. When it is on though I can still listen to music and it scrolls through the menus. Can you tell me what is wrong and how do I fix it?

    If you have not taken the iPod apart, Apple will exchange it for a refurbished one for $99. You can do it an an Apple store
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.
      Apple Retail Store - Genius Bar
    Or sent it to Apple

    You should also ask this in the iPad forum. This is the forum for the white and black plastic MacBooks that were discontinued in 2010. You should also post this question there to increase your chances of getting an answer.

  • I am importing a video and in iMovie the video is now white. the audio still plays and I can play the video properly outside of iMovie so any help is good?

    I am importing a video and in iMovie the video is now white. the audio still plays and I can play the video properly outside of iMovie so any help is good?

    I going to recommend again, downloading and installing some video helper applications.
    1. http://perian.org/ (this will add a number of different file types to the ones QuickTime already plays)
    2. http://www.divx.com/en/software/mac (will add more file types to what QuickTime can play)
    Either one of these might be necessary to get MPEG Streamclip to export the video. Failing that the only other thing I have found is an obscurve discussion thread on Avid.com:
    http://duc.avid.com/archive/index.php/t-277791.html
    I've figured out what the problem is on my end. The video came from Avid on a Windows machine and was encoded with Squeeze. I found out that the 2 seconds of black at the top of the video were at a different frame rate than the rest of the video. I chopped off the 2 seconds of black and started at the first frame of video, exported it with Quicktime Pro and was able successfully view the video in ProTools. Apparently Squeeze will let you create a movie file that has different frame rates within the same movie... This fixed my issue that was exactly as you describe, hopefully it might work for you.
    Lastly, you could try converting the video clip using HandBrake

  • Ipod nano screen is white but music still plays

    I have a second generation nano and a couple of months ago I was in my car and turned on my iPod and it powered on but the screen was white. It still played music but I couldn't see what I was playing. Any ideas on how I might be able to fix this???

    Please describe in detail all you have attempted to do in order to resolve the issue.  Don't want to repeat any solutions you may have already tried.  For example, have you tried restoring or restting?

  • HELP! iTunes Sais My iPod is Corrupted, But Music Still Plays

    I plugged in my iPod, and iTunes sais it is corrupted and to restore it, Windows sais it is corrupted also. But all the music and videos still play. I don't want to restore my iPod because my iTunes library got damaged and whenever I import all the songs again, it just gets damaged in a day. So I don't know what to do. Anyway I can fix it?
    It is the 5.5g iPod video, Windows XP, Intel Celeron D, 2.8ghz, Dell Dimension 1100, 1gb RAM. Itunes 7.0.1, and the firmware is the newest on the iPod, when I plug the ipod into iTunes it sais: "iTunes has detected an iPod that appears to be corrupted. You may need to restore this iPod before it can be used with Itunes. You may also try disconnecting and reconnecting the iPod.". And when I click on the iPod's drive letter in My Computer it sais the disk is not formatted, and it gives an option to do so. But all the music and videos still play fine on the iPod.

    I have the same problem... But after HOURS of trying any and all apple support/user submited suport ideas (all failed) i finaly broke down and restored my iPod. But it did nothing, all it did was instead of my iPod "booting" up and i could listen to my music (that was now skipping thanks to iTunes 7) i get a screen with a picture with the http://www.apple.com/support/ipod URL.... So now i have a $400 peice of junk just sitting their thanks to iTunes... isn't life great?

  • Blank, white screen but music still playing! Help!!!!!!!!

    I've had my iPod Video (30G) for about 5 months. For some reason, today when I switched it on, the screen lighted up but it was completely white and blank. I clicked some random buttons and music started playing. I waited for the battery to run out, and then recharged it on my PC for a while. When I switched it on, the screen was still blank but music could still be played! I tried resetting it by holding MENU and SELECT but it's still broken.
    HELP!

    Maybe try restoring your ipod. Plug in your ipod, go to the updater through the start menu, and then, once it has recognized your computer, click on the restore button.
    Caution: this will remove all songs from your iPod, requiring you to re-sync your iPod with your computer.
    hope this helps..

  • AppleTV music quits playing and exits out to the top menu.

    After about a minute or so of playing music, the streaming music abruptly stops and deposits me back out at the main menu. This only happens once; on any initial music session. After that, it will play for hours. It can't be a network issue; I'm using the RJ-45 connection, not wi-fi. I can't remember when it started happening, but could have started after the last update (v/5.2.1). I don't have Sleep turned on, either. Has anyone encountered this issue?

  • Someone stole my iPod then returned it but it's jailbroken and I can't get into it. Help?

    About a month ago my friend and I got into a huge blowout and he decided it would be funny way to get revenge so he stole my iPod. I had suspected it was him because of the fight, but he denied it whenever I brought it up. A week ago we made up and we hung out last night where he revealed that he was the person that took my iPod. He told me that he would've given it back sooner, but his brother thought it would be a good idea to mess around with it and jailbreak it. Also, when he had it, the home button stopped working and I can only turn the screen on with the lock button. His brother had no idea what he was doing and now none of us can get into the iPod. When I hit the lock button, The screen is blank with no apps, just the picture I had in the background. The bar at tehe top is red and (from the right) says this: "CPT                (lock) 1/2 7:45         (alarm clock) 97% (battery)" When I slide diagonally from the CPT, a small menu shows up. It looks like this:
    Airplane     Bluetooth    Brightness   Data
    Location   Processes     WiFi
         More   Refresh  Dock    Respring     Power
    v5.2      Wi-Fi IP Address: N/A
                 Data IP Address: N/A
            Storage: 355 MB on / 16 MB on /var
                Available Memory : 145 MB
    Help?

    We cannot help with jailbreak devices.  Apple does not and tells us we cannot.
    Even if it was not you.
    We can tell you that very often you cannot restore a jailbreak device to factory default.  Your not-really-a-friend and his brother owe you a new devce, I believe. 

  • Random music is playing and we can't figure out where it is coming from, random music is playing and we can't figure out where it is coming from

    ONe of our Macs has just randomly started playing music and we can't figure out where it is.  iTunes is off, all browsers are off.  Anyone know how to search for the source??

    Have you got iChat.   There have been examples where this was the cause.  If you have, turn it off to check.   You could also go to activity monitor to check what parts of you system are active.

  • Volume set to zero but music still plays

    Just as described in the subject, I set the volume to zero but I can still hear the music. Happens with each and every song.
    Problem is - this lowest volume setting is a bit too high for me. So this is pretty annoying. My common sense says that ZERO volume means ZERO volume.
    Please don't tell me to just pause the song, that's not the issue. We should be able to set the volume to zero and hear nothing.
    Appreciate any help.

    Yes! It happens to me too.
    Plus: When I turn the volume to max, it plays on the external speakers too. Pleaseeeee someone help meeeee! I CANT listen to music like this!

  • When I import a folder into my library, music starts playing and I can't stop it.

    So, I haven't used iTunes in years.
    I'm just wondering if this is the same for everyone, of if I've just done something wrong.
    Brand new install of the latest version of iTunes (11.3.1) - Open it up, use the "Import folder" option to import a folder into my library.
    It's a large (over 200gb) folder.
    As it's importing, for some reason, iTunes starts to play the first few seconds of each album that gets imported.
    But, because the "Importing.." dialogue window is open, I can't hit "pause" or "stop".
    So, my computer is just sitting here playing the first few seconds of many many songs whilst importing. I can turn down the volume to stop it, but I'm just wondering -
    Is this normal? Seems a little odd and strange.

    Generally setting a common Album Artist will fix things.

    yes,thank you for ur answer,  but the owner of the publication which I working on said for  me that this is a problem, and we can't submit the digital publication if I can't fix it.
    Is their any solution to make the audio run after the device is unlocked.
