Thanks for the link Phil22, but unfortunately it didn’t help much. This is what I tried doing:
I thought it might be a bad LCD. So I got another digitizer with LCD but the digitizer was broken. I got it really cheap just to test if the other LCD was bad. I put this new one on and it displayed perfectly. So I bought a good LCD+Digitizer. I took off the one with the broken digitizer and put this new one on. It showed a white screen for a little then went off. Now nothing comes up. No sounds when I plug it in either. I also accidently broke the volume/power button flex cable. Any suggestions? Sorry if this is hard to understand.

Hello :)

If you recently replaced your LCD which is behind the digitizer then it should be fixed, if you are unable to see the screen, re open your ipod & insure the screen clip cables are in exactly, they should pop in, it may seem like they do, but occasionally when i open my iphone, it seems to not respond or screen turn on, i reopen & replug, sometimes this can take an hour.

If you are able to navigate & unlock your ipod. I recommend jailbreaking it, there are many guilds on the internet regarding your model & version, anyway once you do all that, install cydia & look for something called LCD flash.
I preformed this on my old 3g after i replaced the digitizer because i wanted to sell it, after a year or so after not being turned on, i noticed really bad jagged lines like cracks throughout my screen.... After i reset it & re-jailbroke It, i downloaded the screen flash & it worked perfectly! It works by force flashing the screen pixel by pixel. & i ended up getting $120 for it.

Hope i helped

Since you say you just bought it, means it's still have warranty right?
Why not go to the nearest Mac shop and ask for exchange using your warranty ?
