    Weird. Does it change if you plug it into a machine and sync up? If that doesn't help, try restoring the firmware through iTunes. You'll lose everything on the iPod, but this might help if it's not a hardware issue. :)

    Okay, so have you tried restoring it? Remember to back everything up from the iPod if necessary. :)

    If you buy a new one, Apple wins. Call 'em and get it replaced.
