    What theme are you using? Either its the theme or you have a dead section of your iPod. Sometimes the layer that allows touch breaks due to electrical interference, and it stops working. It's rare, but has been known to happen due to the way that the iPod's screen works fundamentally. I could go on and explain, but that would take a while. Just rerestore first, then take to an Apple Store.

    my cousins iphone's bottom quarter of screen stopped working or responding to touch twice, i think it is probably the way he handled it (carelessly - dropping, scratching it, etc)

    he sent it back to the apple store the first time and they just gave him a new phone which i think shows that it is not worth the money fixing which means its probably the whole touch screen surface that is broken:/

    have you got the ipod to turn on? like go onto the homescreen/springboard? if so does the middle section of the screen work?

    hope you get it fixed

    The picture function usually happens when you press both power and home.. I think send it back to Apple.
