    The battery is probably dead. Did you (or her) notice that it needed to be charged more and more often before it died?

    As Haxalot said the battery is probably dead. Buy a new one off of eBay and replace it. It's easy to do, I've done it before.

    then it's not the battery... The units just plain dead. I'd say maybe you should go and buy a new one?

    Are you sure? I still think its a dead battery. I'd try replacing it anyways. Its only like $5. If it doesn't work then you're pretty much ****ed and have to buy a new iPod so its worth a try.

    PS: If you can't get it fixed and don't want it you can give it to me. :tongue:

    Anyways, Im sure out of warranty you can pay Apple to fix it, but honestly might be a better idea to cut your losses and get a new ipod

    Like they said above, I think your ipod is completly bricked,dead,unusable. Doesn't really seem like a battery issue.

    Happened to my dads old one. Wouldn't charge or nothing on the computer or turn on. I'm not sure what he did, I think he got a battery off ebay and replaced it, im not 100% sure though ill have to ask him.
