Try reseting it to factory settings plug it into the computer allow iTunes to start and it should fix the problem as long as it detects the device.

Ipod has locked up with a blank grey screen


how old is the battery it might need to be replaced

Charge the iPod


If your iPod touch suddenly goes blank while you are using it, the culprit could be a low battery.

Prior to the screen blanking you may see a low battery indicator.

If the screen is completely blank, try plugging the iPod touch into a power source and letting it fully charge before attempting to use it again.


Restart the iPod


If you've got a white or gray screen, try to restart the iPod.

Sometimes a simple restart will solve the problem that initially caused the white or gray screen, and the iPod will work as expected once you have turned it off and on.


Reset the iPod
Resetting the iPod Touch goes a step further than just restarting, and it is a good option if you've charged the iPod and restarted and you're still seeing a blank, white or gray screen. Press on the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds before releasing the buttons. At this point, you should see the logo or a battery icon, if the phone needs to be charged.


Restore the iPod


If nothing else has worked to remedy the malfunctioning screen on your iPod touch, try restoring the device. Connect it to your computer and open iTunes, then click on "Restore" which is found under "Summary." Be sure to back up your files when prompted, because the restore will change all of the settings on your device back to the factory default.


If even this does not work, you almost certainly have a hardware issue, and will have to take the device to an Apple store for examination and possible replacement.


hope this helps

First try to reset it, do this by holding down the "Menu" button and the middle button for about 7-8 seconds. If it still doesn't work, try restoring it. Plug it into your computer and open iTunes. Now select your iPod in the list to the left, then click the button that says "Restore," it`s located right under the picture of your iPod model.
Hope this helps!

Try the Five R's suggested by your user's manual - you can get the manual from Apple's website if you have lost it:

Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

Your ipod might need to be repaired, the apple service assistant is on the bottom.

Might be a loose connection or other failing component I don't think there is no quick fix for this.

If the problem is solved dont forget to rate as fixya otherwise there is no need to rate it. As there is noting else we could do about it.
