Hey I just learned how to fix the white screen of death all you do is hold the home button then while still holding down the home button hold volume up button then while still holding those buttons go head and hold the power off button and hold that until you see the apple sign and THIS REALLY WORKS SO TRY IT

my ipods screen turned white many times usually when its shutting off from a low battery and at the same time I plug it in to charge it .................... all I did was wait a few hours and instead of resetting your ipod and loosing all the information just wait and it goes back to normal..

HEY, IF THE ABOVE DIDNT WORK,

try just holding the home buttion and power button on the top. it may take a while but its worth a try if the volume button doesnt work!
