I have an iPod Touch 2G, I have been trying to switch it on for a few days but it won't. When I plug it in my laptop a green screen appears then it is stuck on the apple logo. I tried to start it in DFU mode but I see nothing at all on the screen then when I plug it in there is the Apple logo.

What steps can I do to recover from this situation?

Did you try entering DFU from the computer‌​? – Kevin Chen Jan 7 '13 at 7:53

I have been able to start the ipod in DFU mode and restore it with iTunes and now it starts up again but half the screen is dead.
