Why has my screen frozen?

I believe my I-pod froze up after it took a hit from a static electricial charge as I removed my coat today. I had it in my front breast pocket and as I removed my coat I heard a crackling noise and the screen froze, and has been stuck that. I've tried charging and restarting it with no luck. It remains frozen on the song that was playing.

Is this a good question?

Joe when you say it remains frozen, what if anything do you see on your screen and what does the ipod do, if anything? Is it a 4th gen iPod or iPod Video based on your HDD size.

Well to answer your first question I have a 5th generation 30GB classic. I did try toggling the hold button allong with the Menue & ctr buttons. The screen remained as it was (paused in mid song) I also tried charging via a USB port on my PC with the same results. A friend (with more patience than me) came over and looked on line @ Apple then found an alternate way to reset which did the trick. Thanks gor getting back to me though. Have a great day!
