An Apple iPod is one of the most prized possessions of the owner of one. And if there is a problem with a new one, it is a big hassle for the owner, not mentioning the mental stress that one has to go through when such an expensive gadget develops a problem.
A very common problem that an ipod may develop is that of a defective screen, commonly called negative black effect. These sort of screens have problems displaying dark colors.
Often what happens is that the screen is quirky of flickering while playing the videos on the ipod. This may be a very frustrating problem. There may be a few reasons why this happens. Let us see how we can try to eliminate the iPod screen problems..
Guide to Repair iPod Screen
One of the best way to solving it permanently is to replace the screen completely. There are companies which can facilitate this process for you. Most of them have the largest inventory of hard to find digitizers, glass lenses, and LCD screens available for the ipod and iphone models. The ipod screens they provide help fix the problems fast. Most of the screens include free installation. This is the way how you can avail this service.
1. Order the ipod screen replacement service available at the website of the company. In this, you can choose Rapid Repair to do the installation for you, or choose self-installation.
2. Send your device to their Repair Service Center using your own packaging. Instructions on where to send it will be sent to your E-mail address after you complete the order.
3. Once received, a Technician will replace the screen with a tested, fully functional Apple OEM screen for that particular model.
And if all these solutions are not good enough for you, and you want to try repairing ipod screen on your own then: First, turn the auto brightness off on your iPod. This may reduce the flickering of the screen and if you are lucky, then this simple thing may solve the problem of the screen of your ipod for a long time to come.
Check if the battery is low, although this kind of a problem happens even if your battery is fully charged and the ipod is running off the USB power.
Put a little pressure on the back and bottom right corner and the ipod device would usually correct itself for a while. This is a method that of course, is not a permanent solution to the problem in hand, but the fact remains that you can use this method as a temporary measure until the manufacturer replaces your device.
Manufacturers of ipods have finally officially acknowledged that the problem is a really existing one and that a corporate policy on fixing ipod touch screen problems is a necessity. The causes of the problem has been narrowed down to bad quality control of the manufacturer and misapplication of the reflective coating of the LCD screen.
Companies like Apple have launched replacement policies for the defective touch devices until upgraded outputs have been released to meet the expectations of the clients. Software updates have not proved effective so far.
