Have you ever tried this solution:

1 - Simultaneously press the top button + home (central) button.
2 - Keep both buttons until the Apple appears.
3 - Then release only the top button but still hold the home button pressed.
4 - The iPod goes into recovery mode and then you can restore it via iTunes

Good Luck!
Thank you for your help. Unfortunatly, I decided to go to target and they fixed the problem for me. This all happened at the last minute so I didn't have the time to check up on your comment. If this ever happens again, I will try your solution :) Thank you again for your help.
