Alright, one of these two procedures should help:

1) Hold down the home + sleep/wake buttons until the screen goes black. After that, it should boot as normal.

2) If number one didn't help, hold those two buttons down again till the screen is black, connect the iPod to your computer, open redsn0w, and click extras:


then try pressing the "Recovery Fix" button:


Also, lay off the caps lock.
