its your power button and volume ribbon cable. replacing the cable will fix your issue but it requires steady hands and soldering.

the only other thing to fix it, is to take it apart and replace it. the only thing to get it working now without fixing it is to turn on touch assist in your settings to give you a on screen button to use as a power button. settings - general - accessibility - assistivetouch.

Try a hard reset by holding the home and power button for 10 seconds. If that doesn't work it is possible that the LCD is unplugged or the backlight is burned out. Was the ipod dropped or water damaged?
