Colours are inverted when backlight is turned on

Block Image

Hi, I have a problem with my iPod 4th gen, 30gb model number A1099. Whenever I turn on the backlight, the colours on my screen are inverted.

I am the original owner of this iPod and I am pretty sure this was not how the backlight worked when it came out of the factory. I think this might be a hardware problem and less of a software problem and I dread having to mess with what is otherwise a fully functioning iPod.

I hope the fix for this isn’t too difficult but I am aware replacing the display will require removing everything including the logic board. The display itself works fine, only when the backlight is turned on the colours are inverted.

Did you go into the screens brightness setting to see if it got knocked?


I can’t seem to find a brightness setting in the settings tab. Am I missing something?


Go to the main menu then Settings > Brightness then click the center you should now see the thermometer bar on the screen then slide your finger left or right from the menu point of wheel, then click the menu button to get back to the main menu


Hi Dan, really appreciate your help but I can’t seem to find the brightness tab. Under settings, the tabs that I have are in this order,


Main Menu



Backlight Timer




Sound Check


Date & Time




Reset All Settings

I looked through all the menus, should there be a brightness tab? If there is then that would be another problem to deal with :(

Just to be sure it isn’t a software problem, restore the iPod in iTunes first. If that doesn’t work, try replacing the display. And if that doesn’t work, you will need to replace the logic board.
