I don't have a definitive answer, but I have found that this issue is related to a
failing screen. I also found Apple will replace, not repair, with
another Gen 2 for $109.00 plus shipping. Can buy newest model for not
much more. You can buy a new screen at ifixit.com, around $30.00, but the repair
is rated as difficult.
At the age of this item the battery will be in need of replacement
soon, the battery is connected to screen, makes sense to replace both in
this case. I guess the question is, buy new or experiment replacing
battery and screen. May save $50.00, may not.
Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly".
ok what i would sugest is leaving it for a little while and see if it repairs it self if not the on switch just flick it up really quickly try that a few times hold it and then leave it and then flick it up quickly that worked for me so it sould work for you.
What is happening when you turn the device on? Does it go on and then shut off? If so you will have to reformat the drive for the mp3 player. Simply plug the mp3 player in and click the drive that appears for the player. It should say this device needs to be formatted. Then just follow the steps. Keep in mind you will lost your songs. If the device stays on, do you see your first song on the list. If you do, try pushing the play button, (very last one on bottom) hard.
Did you know of anything you did to physically crack the screen?
As for the clicking-- that is the hard drive. It is either dead or stuck. you may want to try to "unstick" it the Risky way. To do this, Place a stack of paper on a table, and smack the ipod against it. Obviously you should do it to the back to avoid breaking the click wheel or screen (even though your screen may be broken already.)
As for the "very low battery" thing, just plug it into a computer or Ac adapter and let it sit. It will eventually charge.
