Kayla, the first thing I would try and do, is to restart your iPod. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. If that does not work, try to reset your iPod. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button together for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. If that does not work, it may be time to open up the iPod and take a look at the connectors,making sure they are all properly seated and that none of them are broken or torn. If there is no obvious damage, it may just be time to replace the front assembly. Follow these guidesto work on your iPod. Hope this helps, good luck.

I dropped my iPod too and half of the screen wouldn't sense anything (occasionally the sensors wouldn't work at all). I tried turning it off and on again and even resetting it, but nothing worked. Once I got my iPhone I just threw the iPod in a drawer and forgot about it until recently when I found it again. Anyway, whenever the screen starts jumping around or the touch just wont work, I just drop it on the table or slap it against the palm of my hand and that seems to help for a little while.

When you dropped your iPod you more than likely cracked the touch LCD so do as she had stated by checking that everythingis plugged in but be carful because the plugs on the motherboard are very fragile but if everything is plugged in then you need to replace the touch LCD because mine had the sameproblem everything worked exept the touch because I cracked the touch part

Not so fast. iPods just like any other computer system have the tendency to freeze up. If this is the problem, the solution is just to power cycle it. Oldturkey03 was on the right track. However, if your screen freezes, you will not be able to 'slide to power off'. Don't worry though, there is another way. Hold down the power/sleep/wake button on top and then also press and hold the round bottom button. This is the same way you force off the older non-touch screen iPods. The combination of both buttons being pressed and held for some time will force the iPod to shut down. Then just wait 10 seconds or so and hold power/start/wake button again to power it back on. Once it is back on, the touch screen should work again.
