iPod Touch 5th Generation Display Assembly
You can use any microUSB charger that is readily available at Walmart or Walgreens. Most Samsung devices use the microUSB style of charger.
I would try resetting the device.
1. Power down the device.
2. Hold down the POWER and VOLUME UP buttons at the same time until the boot screen appears.
3. Once the Sprout Screen appears (the grid with all the Sprout characters), press and release the POWER button.
4. The system menu should appear. Use the VOLUME DOWN button to scroll down to WIPE DATA/FACTORY RESET.
5. Press and release the POWER button (some versions use the VOLUME UP button at the ENTER button).
6. Use the VOLUME DOWN button to scroll down to YES -- DELETE ALL USER DATA. Press and release the POWER (or VOLUME UP) button to ENTER.
7. After formatting, select REBOOT SYSTEM NOW and press the ENTER button.
8. It will take several minutes for the device to boot up. When it restarts, you will need to set up the device again.
I leave the motherboard and battery in place when replacing the digitizer. You only need to unscrew the motherboard to be able to lift it up enough to access the screw that is sometimes install in the front bezel. After you remove the 4 or 5 screws from the bezel, you can pop off the bezel and replace the digitizer with the LCD still in place. You just have to be careful to not damage the LCD while removing the digitizer.
You don't need to remove the mother board or the battery from the LCD to replace the digitizer. Once you remove the screws from the motherboard you can lift it up to access the screw for the front bezel and access the bezel clips underneath. Taking the battery off the LCD will most likely damage the LCD, so don't even mess with it. After you have the front bezel removed, flip the entire assembly over and you can replace the digitizer. Make sure you remove all the black foam and adhesive from the case after the digitizer is removed. This makes assembly easier and prevents damage to the new digitizer.
Check the connection for the LCD at the motherboard. Lift up the latch to release the cable, remove and reinstall the cable, and then close the latch again.
Most likely the LCD is broken and needs to be replaced.
