If you go to the following web address there is a video instruction on taking an ipod apart. It's listed as How to change the battery on your ipod and is the fourth video down. www.fixyouripod.weebly.com
If the part is stuck inside the iPod you can take the case apart quite easily and remove the broken part. If this is not the issue and I am way off please do let me know :)
Top Case Removal Begin by using a flat tool to separate the white plastic front case from the silver backcase. You will need to stick your flat tool into the crevice, work it down into the crevice,and then pry up so that the casing separates. Apply enough pressure so that your flat tooldoes not slip and scratch your iPod!Continue separating the casing by gently prying up all the way around the unit. It shouldbe much easier to pry the casing apart after you get the initial corner started.
First off - Is there any warranty warranty left? Otherwise what most likely happened is the headphone jack connector broke a terminal. If it is a model with a screen, the headphone jack is a separate piece off the motherboard. It's a cheap part off of ebay, just find someone with nimble hands to reconnect the ribbon cable inside.
It's very likely that when you dropped the iPod and damaged the screen, you also damaged a small component inside of the hard drive. The clicking noises are probably those of the hard drive trying to work and the picture of a "dead" iPod (I assume it's a picture of an iPod with a sad face) is also one that pops up when one is having hard drive problems. If you're comfortable enough opening your iPod, you could probably replace the LCD and hard drive but it might be a better idea for you to just buy a new one and sell the broken one as-is on eBay as you're replacing 2/3 main components of the iPod.
