    I think you can't "Fix" this like restoring or something.
    You'll have to go to a repair centre.
    Because it's a hardware problem, but you can try to restore it once though.
    Good Luck!

    yea, now, you get it replaced, or just buy a digitizer, pick out the screen, and replace it. you need to know how to tho.

    Ye I understand that I can't just fix it, but when I search on google
    Lots of ppl have this problem, so I just asked around.
    Also my ipod touch was totaly broken and fried ppl said.
    But after 1 more extra day put it in front of the window, let the sun shine on the backside, it got healed (Yea!!!!!)
    Sound is working, buttons are working, itunes is working, screen is working (right colors & brightness)
    Everything works, except for the touchscreen

    Lol pretty simple, but good idea
    Thnx, BUT:
    The paper thing already color'd 50% pink, which means there was water damage.
    And I dont think they will accept it then, do they?
