My I pod stopped working
How old is the battery ipod batteries can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing
If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.
If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.
If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked. When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.
If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.
If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.
Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.
hope this helps
