sounds like a component, maybe a decoupling capacitor, although it might be the display module itself, has shorted and that there's not enough power to burn it out (and clear the problem) so it just gets hot
apple's repair fee is probably not worth it, but if you search with google/whatever for a repair service in your country you might find a more economic price
an alternative would be to open the ipod and see if you can remove the component that is overheating, or replace the subassembly that contains it
there's a guide to doing this here, they also sell spares...
