If hard resetting and restoring it doesn't work you have a broken LCD screen. There is an iPod touch repair website that shows you how to replace the screen yourself. But if you're under warranty apple will help you.

Welcome to Fixya

This problem is called the white screen of death. To solve this, you should press the Home button and the Power button together for about 30 - 40 seconds. This process is called hard reboot. You can also try to restore the factory settings by plugging the device to you computer and restore it using itunes.

ITouch crashed and wont restart


try this
  1. 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.
  2. Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  3. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:
  4. Restore and it'll download ~240mb firmware and you're done
If step 1 shows no reaction on your screen,the screen may have got damaged.
