You can work through the five 5 R's of troubleshooting to rule out the possibility of corrupted software.

It might also be a good idea to let the iPod's battery fully drain. Then charge it back up and restore it once more in iTunes.
Otherwise, it's likely a hardware issue with the iPod's LCD display, meaning you'll need to take or send your iPod in for service either via Apple or a third party repair service. Here is Apple's repair pricing.
http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/prices/
Note that they don't actually repair the device, but exchange it for one of the same generation, model, and capacity.  A third party service will actually replace the damaged part for a little less.  Google "iPod screen repair" and you should get a number of results to work with.

  • 1st generation ipod touch won't turn on

    I tried to reset my 1st generation ipod to it's factory settings but when I went to turn it on, all it does is show the apple screen and says it is loading.  I let it do this for over 24 hours.  It is still doing the same thing.  I have tried restarting it but that does nothing.  Please help!

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My 4th Generation iPod touch won't turn on.

    I turned off my iPod, tried to turn it back on and it's stuck on the screen with apple logo. I have tried holding just the power button as well as both the power and home button. The screen will flash, go black, then act like it's turning on, but it goes back to the same screen with the logo. Any ideas on how to fix this problem??

  • My iPod Touch won't turn on even when I connect it to the computer.

    About a month ago, I lost my ipod 4th gen, and I got it back yesterday morning. Before I lost it, it was at less than 20% battery life, so I knew it was going to be dead. When I got home to charge it, my computer wouldn't recognize the device. I tried doing the home/lock button thing to no avail. I held the lock button for five minutes without any response. The stupid thing has been plugged into the computer for the last day or so, and nothing is happening to it. I really miss my ipod... Can anybody help?

  • HT201412 My iPod Touch won't turn on...please help?

    Hi, my 4th generation iPod touch won't turn on. I lost it for about a year, and I plugged it in and it wouldn't turn on. Please help!
    ~Thanks

    Make sure it's fully charged. Hold the Sleep/Wake + Home buttons down (at least 15-seconds) until Apple logo lights up. If that does not work, you may need a new battery.

  • 1st generation ipod touch Software issue

    I have a 1st generation ipod touch (software version 3.13). When I attempt to update the software, it says that the software is up to date.  Can I manually force an update or is there something else I can do?

    Nope. 3.1.3 is the highest possible for a 1st gen.

  • 1st Generation iPod Touch (8GB) won't respond.

    Hi,
    I have a 1st Generation iPod Touch (8GB) and it won't respond to anything.  I tried restoring and resetting and charging.  When I plug the iPod into my Mac (10.2 Macbook Pro) the iTunes (which is very up-to-date) won't even recgonize it.  My computer doesn't even recognize it as a storage unit.  I tried all of the USB ports and multiple cables but stil, nothing is happening.  I can't even get the screen to turn on and display the apple.
    What should I do? Is the battery dead or is my iPod completely dead?
    Thanks!

  • 1st Generation Ipod touch  keeps crashing/going into stand by mode 3.1.3

    I have a 1st generation ipod touch that I recently restored to the newest firmware 3.1.3. My problem is that after this restore and subsequent restore attempts is that the device keeps clicking off to a black screen when I use wifi or transition from different desktop screens. The device does not completely crash as once the screen goes black I can hit the home button an slide to unlock. I have found that if I disable wifi this problem does not occur. I have tried to both reset and restore with no success. Any suggestions or ideas?

    If a restore did not help, I'm afraid you have a hardware issue there.

  • Ios 3.1.1 will not download for the 1st generation ipod touch

    Why won't ios 3.1.1 download for the 1st generation ipod touch?  It will start and then a second later stop.

    Does it happen with the apps that came with the iPod?
    Does it happen with all apps you have downloaded/installed?
    Have you ried deleting the apps and redownload/install the apps?  You will not be charged again if you are signed into the same iTunes account that originally purchased the apps.
    Next would be to restore from backup
    Last would be to restore to factory defaults/new iPod.
