This is not caused by the cable being loose on the main board. Its caused by a intermittant touchscreen where the resistive grid is not making good contact with the tail (cable) that plugs into the main board.

Its a defect in the manufacturing process and can only be resolved by replacing the touchscreen. Please see this link for more info:

Digitizer doesnt work


The Apple iPod is a handy device for listening to your favorite music, but mechanical issues can lead to frustration.

In particular, one problem you may encounter is a touch screen that ceases to function, whether completely or only on certain portions of the screen.

In some cases, a simple fix can solve the problem, while in others, a malfunctioning touch screen may be the sign of a more serious issue.Moisture

Moisture on your fingertips can cause an iPod touch screen to function erratically or not at all. Foreign substances such as hand lotion can also impact the touch screen.
A good practice is to thoroughly wash and dry your hands before using the device.
Wiping the screen with a microfiber polishing cloth can remove any debris accumulated on the touch screen, allowing for the direct fingertip contact necessary for proper functioning.
Barriers

Using a plastic sheet to cover the touch screen provides protection against dirt and smudges. However, the plastic can also create a barrier that prevents essential fingertip contact, especially if it is old and dirty.

Removing the plastic allows you to test the screen to see if it is hindering operation.
Wearing gloves when using your iPod may also inhibit the necessary screen contact, so removing them may also provide a remedy.

Ending Application If your iPod's touch screen freezes or becomes unresponsive when using a specific application, simply restarting the application may solve the problem.

First shut down the application; if this doesn't work, shut down the unit completely and then restart it.
Dead Spots
Instead of a completely unresponsive screen, you may experience difficulty only in specific areas. These "dead spots" are often the result of malfunctioning pixels, which are the components that comprise a digital image.

If you suspect bad pixels are causing your touch screen issues, notify Apple Support for repairs or even replacement.

According to the Tuaw website, Apple's policy has generally been to provide automatic replacement for iPods experiencing pixel problems.

Ipod touch screen is unresponsive but it makes sounds like normal


Fix an Unresponsive Ipod Screen
Many of today's electronic devices including cell phones, music players and portable game systems have a touch screen.
When a touch screen fails, it does not respond when you tap it with your finger or a stylus.
This can happen due to several reasons, such as a screen protector, dust or improper calibration.
You can often fix an unresponsive touch screen by cleaning it or resetting the device.
Remove the plastic touch screen protector sheet.
Some protector sheets are too thick and prevent the touch screen from responding to your touch. If you must use a protector screen, only use one that is licensed for your specific device.
Wipe the screen with a soft microfiber cloth.
Clean off any dirt, dust or fingerprints on the screen.

Dry your hands thoroughly.
The touch screen will not respond if your hands are wet.
Reset the device.
If your device does not have a "Reset" button, remove the battery, memory card or SIM card, then reinstall them.

Delete any third-party applications you recently installed.
Some third-party applications can cause your device to lock up or freeze.

Recalibrate the touch screen.
Look in the device's Settings menu for a calibration option and follow the prompts.

iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting
If this fails to fix the problem
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button and hold it for a few seconds, until a red slider appears. Press the "Home" button until the frozen app quits.
If this doesn't work, you can try restarting the iPod touch.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button if you need to restart the iPod touch, and hold it until the red slider appears on the screen.
Slide your finger over the slider to turn off the device.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button and hold it until the iPod touch turns back on.
If you can't turn off the iPod touch, you can try resetting it.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button while simultaneously pressing the "Home" button when you want to reset the iPod touch, and continue to hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds, until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears.

Its saying calibration problem on the screen


When the Reader device is started for the first time or is reset back to factory settings, the screen must be calibrated. The Reader device will display a calibration screen that requires you to touch the stylus to the center of an "X" at several points on the screen. This is to make sure the touch screen properly recognizes input.
The process requires you to touch the "X" in the following locations on the screen:
  • Top left
  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Center
If the screen is accidentally touched someplace other than the center of the "X" during calibration, the Reader device will display a message stating Calibration error detected. Please restart calibration process .
If this happens, please start again in the top left corner and touch the stylus to the center of each "X" as it is displayed, being careful not to touch any other part of the screen. After the sequence is completed the Reader device will display Touch Panel calibration completed . Click OK to continue to the next step in the setup process.
