I would say its a problem with the wiring in the iPod, you personally properly (no affence) will not be able to fix it, so i suggest ringing Apple (on the numbers below) and talk to them (i know its out of insurence but you maybe able to get them to help you) if there is no success i would suggest you sell it on eBay and put in the item description that it is broken and faulty as people may want it for spares so they can repair there iPod (some people are willing to pay a lot of money) and buy yourself a new or second hand iPod nano either of eBay (for second hand never buy new off eBay) or from Apple Online Store and other online stores (for new) as a new iPod nano could for a max price cost you about £99 ($149).

What do you do when there is a black screen on your ipod

Does it have a green line in middle of screen ??

Apple has some suggestions to try before taking it in to an Apple store. Most iPod Nanos are covered by a one year warranty, and you may have purchased a longer warranty. For questions about your warranty and coverage, call Apple customer service. If your iPod is still covered and you live near an Apple store, it may be faster to take it in.

Charge the iPod Nano for several hours to make sure the problem isn't a low battery. Force reset the iPod Nano by holding down the Sleep button and the volume down button at the same time for 8-10 seconds or until the Apple logo appears. Restore your iPod Nano by plugging it into iTunes and clicking on the iPod, then "Restore." This will wipe all information on your iPod Nano and install the latest version of its operating system. Re-sync your data to the iPod Nano after a restore.

Ipod nano 8GB doesn`t work

Hold down the middle button and the top of the scroll wheel until you see the apple symbol. Keep holding the middle button then hold down the bottom of the scroll wheel. This will reset the iPod so that it will work. If the scroll wheel is still not working, take it to the place you purchased it or if it is in the area, find a local Apple Store and take it to them. They will be able to assist as well.
