You will have to reset the Ipod, but this means EVERYTHING on it will be erased, and you will have to resync it to your library. Here is how: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=60983

The only way to get rid of the password is to do a "Factory Reset" which will delete everything on the iPod. You hook it up to the computer and then when you select the iPod in the "source" panel of iTunes, select the "Summary" tab. There should be a "Restore" button. Just follow the instructions that iTunes gives you. For more detail, Apple support has a page that has every little thing on it, but this should be enough to get you through it.

The only thing that someone with some soldering experience can do is crack the ipod open and resolder the hold switch. Sometimes this switch becomes unsecured and will give the symptoms your ipod has. Short of that, you'll have to send it in for service.

you might have to reset it to factory settings
The 4th generation iPod is a portable media device that can play music, videos, and display photos.
Occasionally, you may run into issues with the iPod where the player has trouble working.
Restoring your iPod to its factory settings will often correct any software issues the player may have by wiping all of the data off of the iPod, and restoring its software to its original condition.
Restoring your 4th generation iPod can be done in just a few minutes, and requires the help of your computer.
Connect your iPod to your computer using the included USB cable, just as if you were going to sync it to add music or other data.
Launch iTunes if it does not launch automatically, and select your 4th generation iPod from the list of devices on the left side of the screen.
This will launch information about your iPod in the main iTunes window.
Click the "Restore" button in the middle of the iTunes window to begin restoring your 4th generation iPod to its factory settings.
Your computer may ask you to enter an administrative username and password to continue. A progress bar will then appear letting you know the status of the restore.
Wait for the progress bar on the screen to finish and then disconnect your 4th generation iPod.
The iPod is now restored to its factory settings.
You can reattach the iPod to your computer and set it up again, just as you did the first time you used it.
