Try switching the camera to P mode on the shooting dial, and look in the menu for the option to reset the camera back to factory defaults.

Does it work when your eye is not at the viewfinder?  Many cameras have a sensor that disables the touch screens when it detects, or thinks, someone looking through a viewfinder.
