I had my itouch in my purse for a few days and didnt do anyything that i know of to break it, then the next day i went to turn it on and it wouldnt turn on so i figured it was dead, then i tried pushing...

Try a hard restart,

To reset the iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

Also be sure to leave it plugged in to charge for a few hours - you may have completely drained the battery.

Doesnt turn on.

This same thing happened to me. I was playing fantastic contraption and my ipod screen just went black and wouldnt turn back on. When I plugged it in to a charger, it made that charging noise, but wouldnt turn on. SOLUTION: try holding in the sleep/wake(power) button, and the home button at the same time for about 15 seconds or until you see the white apple logo. That worked for me, hope you get it fixed.

My Mp3 PLayer is charged but no matter what I do, It wont turn on

your battery has run out and needs to be charged that's why it is not turning on.
connect it to a another usb port on your computer and it should be able to turn on and charge, it should work, if you still have problems, comment back.

I have a Sansa View 16 gig that won't turn on. I just got it on Amazon.I plug it in to charge it with the new charger cord I just bought but it still won't turn on!

I also just bought a sansa view of amazon. its a refurbed 8gb. it was working fine and for some reason after i turned it off and tried to turn it back on, it wouldnt, not even when i plugged it into my computer. all i did was hold the side button (hold/power) up and at the same time pressed and held the home and "select"(middle button) and it turned on! i hope this helps!

My ipod wont turn on or charge.

More than likely the battery just needs to be replaced. I let my nano go dead and it was doing the same thing. So just get it replaced and that should fix your problem.
