I have a ipod nano 2nd generation. It has the white screen of death. I have read where pushing and holding certain buttons will reset it. But I am ignorant of the terms used for the buttons. What buttons do I push - MENU, >>|, >|, |<< or center? In what order? And for about how long?

Hold the menu and centre button. It worked for me.

I was having trouble too. I am charging my ipod right now because it was dead. My screen isn't really white it's like when you watch tv and it goes fuzzy. I will wait a while for it to charge and I will see if it works but my hopes aren't very high...

Ok so after I let it charge, I tried it and I thought it worked until I tried turning it off to see if the white screen of death would come back, which it sadly did. I don't know what to do...

Annie, I think I'd take it to some Apple service ppl then, if you have the chance.
