iPod touch won't respond to touch?

I accidentally closed the car door on my iPod (5th gen) and now there's a huge section of my screen that looks like a bunch of rectangles and white lines, an that section won't respond to touch. When I try to put in my pass code, it'll delete numbers and input numbers from where the screen isn't responding. It won't let me slide to power off, so I'm stuck with a restarted iPod that won't respond. There's no crack in the screen. Help?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You probably impacted the LCD and broke it as well as the cables for the digitizer and display, as they are near the top bit of the iPod (near where you would slide to power off the device).

Depending on what sort of damage has been done all you may need to do is replace the display, or reseat the cables for the display and digitizer.

Worst case scenario you've broken the connectors on the logic board, or partially crushed them and need to have it professionally looked at.

Most of the delicate stuff is in the upper 2/5ths of the device.

Either way, the only way to figure out what happened is to pop it open and have a look
