If it is a first gen machine you HAVE to replace the front screen which I wouldnt do yourself as you are likely to damage the small ribbons holding the main boards together. So, you are better off taking it to a professional.
But I'm guessing from your description that you have a 2nd gen. This has the digitiser on the front glass. If the glass cracks then the digitiser becomes damaged.
Basically, you are not going to be able to fix it without spending money on it. The cracked touch screen needs to be replaced and then all will work fine. The screen for the 2nd gen can be bought fairly cheaply on eBay and is easier to fit yourself than on the 1st gen. There are videos on YouTube showing how to do it without wrecking the iPod.
Hope you get it fixed ok
All the best

The touch screen on my i pod touch doesn't work. i am trying to unlock it and it just won't slide


Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

So sorry for your loss, there isn't any way to fix a cracked screen. If you have the headphones with the remote, you can still play music, but no more Zombieville.

I pod is disable , unable to unlock using password


  1. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPod touch to turn off.
  2. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPod. When you reconnect the USB to iPod, the device should then power on. 
  3. Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  4. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:
  5. Restore and it'll download ~240mb firmware and you're done
Warning: you will lose all your data

My ipod touch is craked


Hi

The only solution to this screen problem is to replace the screen.
You can purchase the screen for example from this website: http://www.powerbookmedic.com/iPod-Touch-LCD-Display-Screen-p-17191.html

You may be able to get a cheaper deal from ebay or from other websites.
