If you jailbroke it, try restoring it with itunes. If not, it may be one of two things. One your screen could be damaged, or two the LED light has burnt out.
You can send it in to get repaired or try reformatting and a hard reset. Hold
Menu and select. This might make it work possibly if it's a bug. But most likley
a screen problem. I would check online for iPod screen
Well as you probably figure, you're back light has probably crapped out. However I would reset it by holding both the menu and center buttons at the same time until you see an apple appear on the screen. If the back light does not come on then, try the settings one more time.
If there is still no backlight at this point; I would go ahead and connect it to your computer and restore it using itunes.
Sadly if you still cannot resolve your issue at this point you will probably want to call apple tech support about it at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273)
If your still under warranty they should cover all expenses on the repair or replacement. (Just don't admit to any kind of accidental damage)
You need to go to Settings, [on the iPod] then go to Brightness. Mess with that and see what you like. I, personally, like my screen to be at 25%.
If that's not the problem, try going to Backlight in Settings. It gives you choices or Off, 2 secs, 5 secs, 10 secs, 20 secs, 30 secs and Always On.
Another issue that I've had is when I'm turning my iPod on from the Sleep option. The screen flashes and turns black when I do this. If you press the Menu button or any of the other options on the Scroll Wheel.
If that doesn't help you with your problems, then I probably haven't had them and suggest that you Google your issue.
Well, you should try restoring it. It will erase all of your data on it, but it might work. If not, you can try bringing it in to an apple store if you still have warranty, but it doesn't sound to good...
It's very likely that when you dropped the iPod and damaged the screen, you also damaged a small component inside of the hard drive. The clicking noises are probably those of the hard drive trying to work and the picture of a "dead" iPod (I assume it's a picture of an iPod with a sad face) is also one that pops up when one is having hard drive problems. If you're comfortable enough opening your iPod, you could probably replace the LCD and hard drive but it might be a better idea for you to just buy a new one and sell the broken one as-is on eBay as you're replacing 2/3 main components of the iPod.
