Does the keypad light up? are u able to hear the songs by navigating blindly without the screen?If yes then your the panel behind your LCD is screwed.. Also sometimes corrupted firmware may also cause this problem if nothing is working then updating the firmware will help.. Let me know how it turned up so that i can help you out..

Regards,
Sai.

Make sure your iPod is not on hold by sliding it on then off again.
Hold the Menu and Center button until you see the Apple logo on your screen and it should restart and come on back to normal.

Try reseting it. If that does not resolve the issue, put it into disc mode and restore again. If these steps do not help please let me know.

Learning how to reset or restart your iPod:
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.




Putting ipod into disc mode http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1363 Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Restart the ipod first. Hold the Menu and Center button down until the screen gets dark, then release it.
If that doesnt work, restore the ipod. To do this, plug it into the computer and click restore when th ipod pops up in itunes. Please note that this will destroy all data on the ipod.

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. If it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
