Did you try charging it with the USB cord or do you have an adapter that plugs into the wall? If you tried with the USB cord, how long did you let it charge?Did you plug cord directly into computer or do you have external USB hub?Many times the hubs will not have sufficient power to charge.Was your computer"go to sleep"after a while.The ipod will only charge while the computer is awake.
There are a variety of things that could be wrong. If the Ipod sat for a long time the battery could be completely discharged. I've not had this problem on the Nano, but on an old Ipod Mini my sister has. I've noticed that sometimes I need to plug it in with a wall adapter to get the battery charged enough to start up quickly. If the battery is completely discharged,it can take 30 minutes or longer to see any life from the ipod. I would let it charge for few hours if you can then try the reset.
Forgive me for asking this next question...lots of times I ask these basic question and people get mad, but the key lock is off, right? On my Nano there's a small slider switch on the top. In one position the controls are all locked. Please verify that you've got it set to the right position. Mine is locked when I can see the red dot.
Assuming the battery is not totally shot and the key lock is off, it's also possible that it's just "locked up". To reset the Nano press and hold both Menu and Select (center button) for about 5 or 10 seconds. If the Ipod is alive this will reset it.

From your post, I'm not sure if you mean the Ipod was sitting for a long time without being used. If that's the case and it used to work, and it has not gotten wet or anything, then the most likely problem is a bad battery. There are services on the web you can find who will replace the battery for a fee. If, on the other hand, it just suddenly stopped working and the reset does not help you may have a more serious problem. Unfortunately there's no way to tell.

Hope this may help you;

Regards,

With hardware issues like this you will most likely want to get the unit serviced or replace it. If the buttons are bad, then basically the whole ipod is broken as well

Ipod wont work


Ok, Not to worry... Try this out and let me know?
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

My ipod doesnt turn on and nothing works... it doesnt charge and when i plugg it to the computer nothing comes up on itunes so i cant even restore it or anything, ive tried everything... please help


hi,
1. Make sure the Hold switch is off
2. Make sure the battery is charged
3. Reset iPod
4. Let iPod's battery drain
5. Update iPod's software
6. Make sure iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard, and your iPod, then see if it will turn on.
7. Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.
8. Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works.


IF all the above is checked and if ur ipod still remains same please take it to an apple store and check with them!..thank you!!..

Hold down on the center button while hold down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear. Your Ipod is now rebooted.

Is the new battery fully charged? Usually it takes 6 hours on a new battery.
