Why do I have a gray horizontal line on my screen?

I have a gray line about one pixel thick that goes horizontally about half way across the screen of the iPod. Where should I first look in diagnosing the problem?

I apologize for the terrible picture quality. The line is between "backlight" and "brightness". It isn't a crack in the screen. Thanks for the responses.

On a side note:

Any idea what causes this issue?

Can you post a picture so we can see if it looks like its damage to the actual screen or not?


My ipod had multi-coloured lines across screen. Followed instructions to hold down on-/off button at same holding centre button until apple symbol appears. Did it a few times, nearly gave up but eventually the lines cleared. THANK YOU.


broken inside screen


just a guess but i figured it would be bigger

Q: is the gray line there no matter what is being displayed?

I would guess it's likely a hardware failure in the LCD module, more specifically one of the outputs of the LCD row drivers, as I described in my answer to a similar question

unfortunately it's unlikely you'd be able to repair this yourself without replacing the whole LCD display module.

one thing to try - does slight pressure directly on either edge of the glass where the dead line is bring it temporarily back to life? - that might mean it's just a physical break in a connection of one output. bad news is it's likely impossible for you to resolder, the drivers are often bonded directly to the glass.

I hade the same thing on my 7th gen iPod nano. They looked like dead pixels but they weren't. Then I got these dots on my screen after a long time of using it day after day the lines went away.
