does everything work except the slide to unlock?

i mean - that area where the "slide to unlock" shows up - does it work at all ?

most likely the connection is the problem or the digitizer is faulty and needs to be replaced.

since you didn't wrote what ipod touch model you have, i can't provide you the link to the guides for that model.

first try to reset the ipod - press and hold the home and the sleep button until the ipod restarts - try if it works, if not - disassemble it -> select the model and the guide from the menu on the right,

disassemble the ipod and reseat the digitizer connector - if that won't work - the digitizer is faulty and needs to be replaced

I fix mine!The unlock slider does not work after replacing the digitizer on my I pod because I connect the two tape connectors of the digitizer upside down ! Disconnect the digitizer and reconnect the two plugs so you can see the white lines on top of the plugs.I also tried everiting else before I discover myself my mistake.

got the same problem and i factory restored it with computer and the slide worked once got in and everything was working so i thought i fixed it then i decided to lock it well it went back to you cant do anything on the screen such as cant get camera, cant slide, cant even slide up the volume, nothing works but after you somehow get pass the screen it works perfectly. like WHAAAT. so it cant be the digitizer. i done some research and it said that under ios 7 doesnt work with slide so apparently you have to update ios to 7 or above! but how? you cant get in phone? dont wanna pay! it sucks, sorry i cant help ill let you know if i get in mine.
