A few things to try... Get another ipod and back up (using the menu button) to the first menu list you can,( should show the Music, Movies, ect list) and then do the same to your broken ipod. Follow the good ipod with the broken ipod and open a song. (just to clarify, you are using the good ipod to know what to press in the broken ipod because you can't see the screen). Now use your headphones to see if it is playing. If it works, your LCD is dead or depixelated. A screen replacement is necessary. You can find one on eBay for around $25 or someone to do it for you possibly on Craigslist.
If this doesn't work and it doesn't sync right to your computer then *********** board may be the culprite. Unfortunately this is the second most expensive part to replace. If you don't want to deal with it sell it on eBay/craigslist and put the money towards a new one.
First of all do a reset by holding down the Select and Menu buttons.
When it's restarted it if it hasn't solved it press and hold the Select and Menu buttons but as soon as the screen goes dark press and hold the Select and rewind buttons. This puts the iPod into diagnostics mode.
From there go to 'IO' on the list using the wheel and Select then to Display and keep clicking select as it goes through the different colours and graduations. Hopefully you see them all
when it comes to the end it will ask yo to press Menu, so do that.
Click Menu again and again until you see reset at the bottom of a list. Go to this and select it.
It will now reset and all will be good in the world.
If that hasn't fixed it then it's likely the ribbon for the LCD has become dislodged or damaged. If it has, let me know.
