Question 3rd generation ipod touch cant get into dfu mode and wont restore

Hi, i have a tethered jailbroken 3rd generation ipod touch. Today my ipod was working weird, the screen randomy stopped working and it would open apps that i didnt even press on. Because of all this, i decided to reboot my ipod. When it asked to go in DFU mode, i did everything as said and my ipod would just go in recovery mode, i retried like 2o times and it still does the same thing. I then tried to restore my ipod so i could fix this but it said error... WHAT DO I DO???

Keep trying. Your iPod will go into DFU mode. The only reason why it will not go into DFU mode is a hardware problem.

PS: The pink text is a bit eye searing.

Ive been trying for an hour... Would this be fixable if it would be a hardware problem?

It could be as simple as a stuck button. Or it could be something more expensive like a broken logicboard. You could try this, I've never done it: http://www.funkyspacemonkey.com/put-...-button-broken
