I recently found my lost ipod. It had no charge and so I charged it at my pc. iTunes recognises it and lets me add music to it. When disconnected from the computer- it even PLAYS music perfectly now.
... BUT...
The screen backlight comes up as i turn it on (as though normal) but the entire screen is scrambled. Everything simply goes from black (off) to multicoloured horizontal lines (on).

Does anyone know what I could do to sort the screen out, please?

I have tried the holding down of home and play together for up to 2 minutes, even gently hitting the apple logo on the back as a last option for resetting (which is actually the way that I got the music to play)
So it plays, but the screen is screwed.
Please help, if you can.

Dear Sir,

Please consider having it restored to factory settings in order to have the problem solved.

Thank you.
