It appears the play/pause setting on my dial is shorting out.  It produces a loud click when depressed and the screen goes blank.  Ipod must be recharged to work again, but repeats the problem.  Can this be fixed?

I have an older ipod classic.  When I depress the play/pause, I get a loud pop in the speakers and the screen goes blank.  Cannot get the screen back up.  Charge it up and it looks good, but it repeats the problem.  Sounds to me like that part of the control is shorting out.  Can this be fixed or is the unit trash?
