    Reset the iPod

    1. After charging till full charge, at least 2 hours (preferably 4 hours)
    2. Toggle the Hold switch, make sure you dont see the red mark when you do the  next step
    3. Reset the iPod -> Press Menu and Center button simultaneously for about 10 secs or till the Apple Logo comes ON
    4. Then release the buttons
    5. Select your preferred language.

    Here is the Apple support Article on the 5Rs



    If this doesn't work, bring it to Apple Store or 3rd Party service vendor.

    Good Luck!

    This advice did not solve my problem, all I am getting is feint lines down the screen as if the info is their but it can not show it, I think I will have to take it to a third party for a fix, thank you for your reply to my problem, if it is going to cost too much for a fix, an up grade may be my only option.

    Normally, if a Reset doesn't work, then it would be hardware and replacing the screen at any 3rd Party service would be the way forward, and while you are there, ask for a Hardisk upgrade and a battery replacement.
