I dont think i can help you fix this but if you jailbreak your ipod, they make an app which helps you compensate for the broken home button. i stumbled across it the other day while surfin through apps in installer. look up "ziphone" in google and procede from there to find the app which fixes your problem! give me good rating if this helps

Try holding both the power and home button for 15-30 seconds, if that doesn't work hold just the power button for about 3 seconds, and while still holding the power button press and hold the home button for 15 seconds and then release the power button and hold the home button for 30 more seconds. this should hopefully get the iPod to work
From Apple Website1. Restart your computer (yes, you have too) 2. plug in your ipod touch (it should have the usb cord and itunes picture on the screen) 3. open itunes. 4. itunes will recognize the ipod. just ignore the message, and then hold down the home and hold button (on the top) for about 10 seconds, and after you count to 10, release the top hold button, but still holding home. 5. itunes will pick up the ipod, and once it does, release home. 6. Now click restore, and everything should work fine. (if problem persists, try turning off firewall, and close all other programs)
While your itouch is connected to your computer, and itunes is open, press and hold the sleep/off button (the one on the top of the itouch) until the slider comes up on the screen. Slide the slider to turn off the itouch. Now, press and hold the home button (the one right below the screen) and at the same time, press the off/sleep button again. Hold both until you see your itunes page bring up a "restore" feature. Unfortunately, when restoring, you will lose all data (songs, etc..) Hopefully, you have this data in itunes and can easily download it back onto your itouch. This is the only thing that works. Sucks that you lose everything, but at least your itouch will once again work....
try resetting the itouch - press and hold the home botton and the sleep/wake button at the same time for about 10 seconds. If it does not come back to life and the battery is charged, you will need to take it in for service
