So my iPod is less then 8 months old, I never dropped it or damaged it with water. I have reset it, let the battery fully drain and then recharged it, and finally completely restored it.

So here are the symptoms:

*The entire screen flickers

*Then it normally crashes (it goes white and then shows the apple logo while it reboots itself)

*It drains a full charge in less then 24 hours even when I leave it off. It drains it in less then 2 hours if I am using it.

So what do you guys think is wrong with it? Thank you.

Hi sir,

Based on what you just said, looks like you just got yourself a defective unit.

Have you tried going to the genius bar and have it looked upon by specialists?

Alright, thank you for the info. Do you know how much an apple genius bar charges?

To be honest I haven't really been to a genius bar! I've been lucky enough not to have any defective units ever since. But, I heard it's free. You might even get a replacement if it is still under warranty.
