Blank white display, works intermittently

How it happened :

It fell on its face from a height of 3 - 4 feet when I accidentally yanked a cable that led to this fall :'(

Issue: I can't get the iPod to work without squeezing it, it used to work initially without a squeeze & for longer & now, the display pixelates as soon as I am able to unlock the ipod.

The Ipod's display & touch works when the device is squeezed in a particular way.

Question: (yeah, Finally!)

I have ordered the plastic opening tools & I suppose that the digitizer has gone a little out of place, once I have reseated it, how do I glue the same frame back?

as the screen nor the display has developed any cracks.

I read it here in the teardown that the hinges on this & 3rd gen touches are in the frame itself, I am not able to find that link, supposedly that is the answer to my question.

I will also post again once the tools reach me in India, to tell you peepz on how it went.

Thanks for reading a not so short post :)
