    When I press on the screen at the bottom my ipod fades until it goes off and the screen is blank. It will only go back on via the mains charger.

    the iPod is not connected through cables it is connected with a disk like a magnet, its not a magnet, well this may have dirt in the middle, did you drop it??

    I suggest taking it appart.

    but I dounbt you'll take that option.

    The other one is take it to Apple.

    If got sorta the same promlem, any where I click on the screen where there isn't an icon, I get this blurred image of a pencil, paper and ruler and then it crashes 10 seconds later to the springboard after.

    If I press with my thumb near the bottom of the screen beside the home button that when the screen fades the icons are all dark and eventually it goes off and the charger is the only way to bring it back on. It hasnt been dropped and putting a case on the ipod make it even easier to switch it off accidently. Please help!

    Try restoring, I haven't heard of an issue like this.

    Only with my phone, that happened to me, but I don't know why its happening to you.

    All I can tell you is I think it's just faulty wires.

    But by all means, just restore.

    Nope, I found the reason. I donwloaded this one app called Homework Agenda so i tried it out and didnt like it and I remeber the backround was the pencils and stuff so I deleted the source and I'm fine now.
