Ipod... mini I think. About 18 months old.

I was going out with my gf and I took my ipod because bus journey's can get dull. I put it in the same pocket as my wallet - can't have it with keys incase I scratch it. - Took out my wallet and the ipod feel about 3 feet from my pocket to the floor. I heard a bang, I wasn't concerned, iPods are built for stuff like this.

I got home, fired it up and there are grey vertical lines running down the screen. Not cracks, I think something came loose. I did what a normal person would do. A drop broke it, a drop will fix it. I threw it on some carpet hoping to shake something back into place but alas, still have these annoying lines.

Everything else works. Ideas?

I don't know of anyone who uses that logic to fix something. If something breaks it, don't do the same thing again - it broke it in the first place.

It sounds like the screen is damaged. Are lines present in every menu option? If so, is sure sounds like the screen has been damaged.
