    Ok, first off this isn't mine.. It was found along side of the road. Pretty damaged but the screen is perfect. I took it all apart and only found a small chunk of the case plastic was broken, the power button leads were crushed and the volume/mute circuit board was cracked. Everything works but no recognizable picture, it just has random lines. ITunes sees it and even updated the OS. The touch screen seems to work fine since I can see the lines moving when I scroll around the screen. My question, does this sound like just the LCD needs replaced?

    Looks like more than an LCD. Maybe something graphics processor oriented. Or the horizontal hold is just way off. :D

    Hahaha, a bus is right! It Was laying on the side of the road in a leather case. I'll tell ya, the aluminum back is very tough, I couldn't even bend back the corner at all.

    C'mon people, someone probably left it on the roof of the car.
