32 gig touch screen not working

Hi guys

In need of some much required assistance.

I have a 2009 3rd gen ipod touch 32 gig, the screen is unresponsive, even after replacing it 3 times.

I have performed a restore through itunes, and this has not resolved the issue. Running software version 5.0.1

The home button works, The power button works, pressing both together reboots the ipod. When i plug it into power at the mains, it makes a little beep.. all in all it looks as though it should work, but wont.

The screens i used came from ebay,

2 of the screens were sold as 'for ipod touch 3rd gen' and the ribbon stated it was for a 2009 with a code of 821-0908-02 (same code for both screens )

The 3rd screen was sold as for an ipod touch 3rd gen 32 - 64 gig and had a different ribbon code of 821-0856-04 for 2009

Has anyone got any suggestions?

Lee, that last one 821-0856-04 is the right number for the 3rd gen.

if you buy a digitiser that comes pre assembled with a home button, you get the screen and the thin plastic surround all in 1. Its a tad more expensive, but i feel woth the money, saves a bit of messing about..

There is a slim chance that the port on the MB is bad, but that is still very low. Also, are you replacing the LCD screen, what sits on the metal panel, or are you replacing the digitalizer, which is the actual glass?

Touch issues are related to the digitalizer.

Try a more reliable dealer such as Amazon or here at iFixit. eBay can be good, and I use it myself, but sometimes they give bad parts out.

Cheers mate, thanks for the reply.

The lcd screen is perfect. Its just the touch screen ( digitizer ) that is not working.

Ive tried 3 off ebay, to be fair, the people who sold them asked for feedback and when i said they hadnt worked, they refunded my money. A little too easily perhaps.. a cynic would suggest they know the parts they sell are rubbish..lol

Ah, I see. Although I have not personally used them, try these guys:

They are a company out in California, United States. They seem quite professional. Their prices are fair too.

I have exactly the same issue with an iPod 3rd gen 64GB. I stopped after 1st try from eBay (truste_gu57octm is the seller). The seller tried to help me out sending additional instructions, but they turned useless so far. Reading above I've decided to apply for a refund. I gave no feedback so far, so I'm crossing fingers.

Does anybody ever succeeded replacing the screen? Any seller recommended?

Additionally, while I was able to open the iPod, but I damaged the thin border of the plastic frame under the glass... any advice on how to get a new one? It's just an aesthetic issue, but eyes want their part too!

I agree. I used a wholeseller for iPod screens tended to get in lots of defective ones. I switched back to buying my screens from Amazon, in particular TheOemPlanet (I have no affiliation) and have had zero dead screens.

2nd and 3rd Generation ipods can be tricky to open. I've learned a few easy tricks to remove the midframe and glass. If you go to Amazon you can buy spudge tools. They are long metal very thin pry tools. I carefully run a very sharp exacto knife blade between the metal back casing and the midframe (black bezel that holds the glass digitalizer) carefully around the edges ensuring I don't cut the rubber gasket and release any factory sealant or adhesive. I then take my spudge tool and carefully insert it down on the first clip connection near the mic jack. You need to work your way around the sides to release the clips. ther are also two on the top and bottom of the ipod mid frame. If you pry inward too hard you'll not only crak the screen but pressure crack the LCD. It takes an extrem amount of patience to release the mid frame from the logic board protection plate clips so take your time, be patient and if you think you're getting too rough with it walk away for a few minutes. Apple doesn't want anyone fixing these things but I have learned trial, error and youtube really helped my cause.

The touch screen does not work for the iPod Touch, but is operated and requests activation

Hi. My 3rd Gen 32 GB Touch had a screen that turned on but was unresponsive to touch. This happened after a severe battery depletion and then re-charge. I tried your suggestion of holding the power button and start button at the same time to force the device to reboot. After the forced reboot, the touch responsiveness of the screen worked again. Thanks!

Forced Reboot? - HOW? does one force reboot? I have replaced the 2 gen digitizer and now am not getting a response from the touch screen. What are the differences in the connector (The small press in connector). It feels as if it presses in place but comes off very easily. Ideas on driver updates, am I pressing firm enough? I do not want to press too hard?

I bought and installed a digitizer with home button. Also installed a new battery. The device now turns on! But none of the buttons work, nor does swiping. Any thoughts?

The same problem, basically the screen stopped working. and my iPod 3rd Generation has IOS 5.1.1.

I tried to restart/turn it off by holding the home button and power at the same time, more than once. This didn't work.

Then I thought the OS itself was clogged or had limited space, it could not operate. I then used a pc utility called iFreeUp its second time ever, had it clean off the junk files, and other needless files, and I then deleted old podcasts off, which weren't being normally seen and then tried to connect ipod 3rd Gen to iTunes, which is READING MY NEWER iPods OS 9 NEWEST UPGRADED APPS from my other pc into iTunes, a BIG MISTAKE, another problem next to reset, fix.

Then I tried the home/power button again and saw the music app was running, breaking down to a volume control only on the screen then POOF, the ipod went completely off, rebooted and is now working fine.

At least I can now make a backup of the 3rd Gen iPod with its latest oldest apps, after FIXING the the SYNC problem with the newer iPod using OS 9.03. It looks like iTunes is mirroring too much into their cloud, and only two iPods per pc is allowed even though two max of each pc, the OS 9.03's newer apps are appearing as the third iPod on this pc. THIS could also have been what locked up the 3rd Gen OS 5.1.1, bacic SYNCING with a pc which has recently received a newer second iPod, and I feel the space being low was the MAIN start of the no response touch.

The OS 9.03 has never been connected to my fastest pc, and seeing its files on there, shouldn't be happening. It did fine with only two 3rd Generation iPods with different OS's until the OS 9.03 iPod arrived, was connected to the other pc, just to be clear again, it is DOMINATING the 3rd Gen iPods from being seen at all! Itunes is treating the older iPods Apps as if they were used on same iPod, and recycle bin now has the 3rd Gens apps almost trashed. Solution is Itunes needs repairing, since one can not restore very old apps from a incompatible OS, it's almost like one iPod backup per pc might prevent the screen lockup and the syncing problem which could have locked my older iPod.
