white screen not of death?

I've been dealing with this problem for about a year now. My ipod touch gets a white screen but I dont think its the white screen of death. When its white I can squeeze the lower portion of the screen (usually on the right side) and the screen works. When I let go, it will go white again.

The other problem is that if I put in any headphones or even connect to a car using the headphone jack....sound only comes out on the right side. BUT if I squeeze the lower right side of the screen I'll get sound out of both sides.

I haven't read anything with anyone having a problem quite like this so I figured I'd post and ask. Nothing has ever happened to this ipod, I actually bought it and didn't really use it....then when I did begin using it this started a few months later, but I was beyond the warranty.

Any suggestions would help. The menu/power button thing doesn't work....I'm not locked out of the ipod with the white screen I can still see the normal screen but I have to squeeze the screen. Thanks.

Ipod: Model: A1238 - 8BG - Software: 4.2.1

Same here but, always on the lower left corner of the iPod. I have tried to reset, factory restore to no avail... sometimes the screen will be upside down. I will press the settings but, the weather will come up and vice versa as if visually the screen is inverted but, actually the iPod thinks they are in the same location on the screen. Pressing the left corner of the iPod repeatedly will make the screen white, black, spotted black and grey, vertical lines or just a very dim desktop. I will do this until the screen appears correct but, it is usually dim once it gets oriented correctly and adjusting the brightness does nothing.

I assume this is a hardware issue... this was my daughters Ipod and it has been this way for 2 years... I just found it in a drawer last night and have started messing with it again.

Any thoughts? If it is a cheap fix, I will try it. Thanks in advance.
